Democrats concede Republican majority could get bigger in the House
Posted by Staff
The Hill reports:

Both Republicans and Democrats head into Election Day with a legitimate shot at picking up seats in the House, with the GOP virtually assured of keeping control of the lower chamber.

The electoral landscape has shifted significantly from just one month ago, when Democrats were hopeful that they could gain more than a dozen seats and possibly recapture the majority they lost in 2010. Democrats would need a net gain of 25 seats to win the House.

Now Democrats have lowered expectations, and strategists for the party privately acknowledge they are now as likely to lose seats as gain them. Nonpartisan prognosticators have come to the same conclusion, and project Democratic gains in the low single digits, if any.
