It will happen much sooner than I thought. I'm sorry you and others are still in denial.
I'm not in denial in any sense of the word. I simply understand the difference between winning a national or state election versus winning a congressional district election. Even with Obama on the ballot (bringing out large groups of voters who will not show up in 2014) and the MSM completely in bed with Democratic Party, the Republicans lost only a handful of the seats they won in 2010. The districts that stayed Republican through that mess of a 2012 election will hold in 2014, and a few will be won back.
The Dems control the Senate due to the strength of large urban areas dominating their respective states, said dominance disappearing when congressional districts weigh in individually.
4.5 million fewer Americans voted for Obama in 2012 than voted for him in 2008, even with a one-sided media holding him up on its collective shoulders. His percentage of the vote got smaller as well. It's not like his popularity is surging right now. The more of a wedge he throws into the country, the stronger the opposition to him will be reinforced at the congressional district level.
The Republican party may be a mess right now, but the anti-Obama sentiment is stronger than it has ever been.
You saw how the country responded in November of 2010 to two years of Obama having a lock-step Dem Senate AND House, and how he was able to use that advantage to pass an unpopular healthcare bill. The voters will realize in November of 2014 that returning the House to the Dems will mean two years of Obama ruling with free reign, and having zero accountability to worry about when he is a non-candidate in 2016.
There will be strong support for Republican House candidates in 2014 not because they are Republicans, but because they are not Democrats, and thus can keep the leash on Obama on his final laps as President.
