Democratic pollster PPP, has released a series of polls of Congressional seats since the Shutdown debacle ended. Of the 61 they surveyed, 37 are vulnerable to defeat and the Democrats need less than half of those seats to retake the House (they need 17).
Huffington Post compiled a list of the Gang of 37, and the list may surprise you. Included is the richest man in Congress and leader of the Obama witch-hunts, Darrell Issa and conservative pretty boy favorite and Romney’s Vice Presidential running mate, Paul Ryan!
Darrell Issa may go home next November!
Can it happen? Well, elections are never easy to predict and nearly impossible a year in advance. So much can change and anger over the shutdown can wear off. Some of it did in 1996 as well, even though they got trounced in the Presidential election and overall anyway.
Know the people on this list. If our nation has any chance at having a functional government again, these people need to sell their nice homes in the Potomac area.
