Let's try this again. Poll results will be public(last poll had hundreds of votes, mostly by nonmembers), and I will make fewer faulty assumptions in making poll options, offering a broader range of possibilities.

Please be patient as I slowly type all the poll options in. Poll will be on in a few.

My vote is probably just wishful thinking, but you never know.

I would prefer if the republicans gained everything in 2012 because I don't think the Obama administration will be honest with the public about the republican houses. They're already dishonest even though the Democrats have majority with this "party of no" BS that is completely irrelevant in situations that only require 50+1. The people will then sympathize with poor old Obama who only wants to make everybody happy and they'll reelect the democrats, the party of si se puede and chaaaaaaaaange and they're going to keep hope alive and other mindless slogans that will energize the masses.

The Dems have lost the House, that's plain. Not even their choice bit of taking food from the mouths of the poor to provide money to goonions that will then funnel those tax dollars to Democrat candidates will alter that outcome.

The Dems might lose the Senate, but since there's Olympia Snowe, that other broad from Maine, and other RINO's in the Senate, the actually voting trends of the Senate won't be affected if the GOP has a nominal majority anyway.

BUT...since all spending bills must, by the Constitution, originate in the House, a Republican majority in the House dedicated to CUTTING the size of the federal government can do much to reverse the damage the Democrats have done to the nation.

How? Which seats do you think Republicans will pick up. I also still haven't seen anyone provide a link from a legitimate news source saying Republicans will pick up the House nor have I seen people say which seats Republicans will pick up (either one is fine).

I picked; the people will withdraw their consent of this government and nobody, 0% of people vote.

We need to enact on ballots the follow:

"None of the Above - Request New Candidates"

And if 50% of the voters choose that, all of the candidates on the ballot are banned from the current race.

The Republicans haven't done a good job convincing moderates their beliefs and policies are fair or practical, but the Democrats haven't lived up to expectations either. End result, reduced independent and Democratic voters, high conservative turn out. But it's a question mark whether the passion conservatives have been demonstrating will translate into a landslide; conservatives will come out in high numbers, but they tend to do so regardless of circumstance. Increased passion for conservatives is somewhat redundant, because the average conservative already possesses a maxed out incentive to vote in ordinary situations, let alone during the midst of a 'socialist takeover'.

Democratic gains were so large in the last elections that moderate/liberal spirits will REALLY have to be down in order for the comparably tiny pool of conservative voters to give their party a majority in the House. The Senate doesn't seem like a very plausible goal.
