New analysis shows Democratic takeover of House likely

Published: Friday August 25, 2006

The latest state-by-state analysis by the Rothenberg Political Report projects a Democratic takeover of the House of Representatives, RAW STORY has learned.

In the lower house of the legislature, Rothenberg's analysis sees Democrats gaining 15-20 seats--well over the 12 needed for a House majority. Previous analysis had the gap much tighter, with Democrats' prospects for takeover hanging on just a handful of hotly contested seats.

Democrats still appear unlikely to re-take the Senate, however, with projected gains of just 3-5 seats. Of the 9 seats ranked as at least somewhat competitive, both of those leaning toward an incumbent ouster and three of the four toss-ups are currently held by Republicans. However, three Democrats are also given just a narrow advantage in their races.
