Remember 1994? Batten down the hatches, Dems. From Talking Points Memo.
The newest analysis from the Cook Political Report -- one of the most respected political commentators out there -- finds that the Democrats have lost control of the political environment, and that current trends could point to significant Congressional losses in 2010:These data confirm anecdotal evidence, and our own view, that the situation this summer has slipped completely out of control for President Obama and Congressional Democrats. Today, The Cook Political Report's Congressional election model, based on individual races, is pointing toward a net Democratic loss of between six and 12 seats, but our sense, factoring in macro-political dynamics is that this is far too low.
