"As I listened to the end of the year "analysts," I was struck by how little they know, how little they have questioned their own mistakes, and how mutually reinforcing their false information has been".

Mr. Newt be right.  Then again, how could my namesake be wrong.....

The very fake news hysterical drive by media and their demonrat cabal are lyin to themselves again. Unfortunately many republicans will believe the crap.

"People who are pro abortion are already born.
"The problem with liberals is not that they are ignorant, the problem is they know so much that is not so.

I believe the control of the House will depend on how well the recent tax bill is received.

It's probably going to be appreciated much more in red states than blue states, and there are a lot of vulnerable seats in blue states.  Check out the white and pink districts on this map:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cook_Partisan_Voting_Index#/media/File:CPVI_for_11...


I think the R's will win red states no problem. They will lose NY, CALIFORNIA, NJ, and the High property tax areas because they will be capped at $10,000.00 for real estate taxes then the mortgage int. of what $750,000.00. Most red states are lower taxed and housing so they will gain biggly.
  

Where's my RECIPROCITY???????

I tend to think the map favors Rs overall.  They would have to lose 22 seats to lose the majority.  The only concerning thing is that in CA, NY, and NJ there are a total of 19 R seats that are competitive.  So the House is very much in play.

My concern is voter turnout.  Let's face facts here:  Trump is hated, HATED, by the liberals.  That drives people to the voting booths.  That is what really sunk Moore in Alabama.  Republican voters are happy enough, complacent enough to not worry about seeking new voters.  Everything I read shows that each month there are more Dems registering than Repubs.  Do I believe everyone registering is legally able to vote?  Heck no, but there are no safety measures across the states to ensure only those qualified to vote do so. 

It's hard to remain optimistic when I hear the hatred every day.  Yes, I live in a blue state but as well as the country is doing economically, in the defense dept., etc., there are still millions who hope he is impeached and give him zero credit.  He seems to be more hated a year in than on election day. Initially when Trump won and the crazies were protesting and marching, I figured they'd lose interest and we'd get back to normal but that doesn't seem to be happening.    I'm close to DC and we never go into the city on weekends because there is always some kind of demonstration going on....

The only thing the Democrats have going for them is that they are not Trump. They don't seem to have an agenda, except resist, they don't seem to have ideas, and they don't seem to be raising money at the rate the Republicans are.  That said, as someone else said, voter turnout is the key, and I hope the Rs on the local levels are busy working on this.  I listen to the Ds on the telly and they don't have a single thing to say except bash Trump. If they have a platform, they're not telling anybody and if any of them have an original thought they can't seem to spit it out.

You think the hypocritical libs would like the idea of paying their fair share since they ALL VOTED against the tax bill. If your property taxes are more than $10,000.00 you're not exactly poor, or if your mortgage is $750,000.00 again you're not poor.

There may be many that pay more than $10K that have several others they help. Some get lower cost in rentals, some are family that can no longer work (may be white so no Gov. help even tho need it), etc. etc.
A lot of Americans still help each other but get no help from uncle sam.  The small deductions for local taxes would be a small help fo them.

$10,000.00 isn't small and it was on your primary home anyway wasn't it? If you're property taxes are more than that you have a nice home and make OK money.
Second Trump or the R's wouldn't win seats in most of these areas anyway. NJ is now a suburb of NY, NY city Kalifornia and the like anyway.

I was a survivor of NJ. When my taxes hit 8 thousand 15-16 yrs ago I downsized, when the small home taxes hit 4 thousand I left the NY suburb. My taxes here are less then $400.00 per yr. on 4 acres with a huge barn and 1400 sq ft ranch on the side of a mountain. Sometime we have to make tough choices.
