Senate & House

TPM polltracker is now showing polling at one pickup (=54) for Democrats in Senate. Six months ago the punditocracy said it was unlikely Democrats could avoid a Rightist takeover.

How 'bout the House? Conventional wisdom has it that there's no way to gain 25 seats
(mainly because 2010 was a Census year and the Rightists executed a Statehouse Takeover strategy that allowed them to have a heavy hand in redistricting). Nancy Pelosi is saying it is possible, with her "drive for 25" campaign (possibly just so as not to concede the inevitable). I'd sure like to see some hard data about which 25 seats they've figured out could be won, (if they have), and how we're doing.
