Small gains projected for House Republicans
Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball report projects small gains for Republicans in the House of Representatives next year.
At this very early point in the 2014 race for the U.S. House, small Republican gains — as in, less than five seats — look likelier than a similarly small gain for Democrats. That’s because the Republican targets just look a little better than the Democratic ones.
While it would be foolish to rule out any outcome, there is no indication at this point that the Republican House majority is in jeopardy.
Kyle Kondik of Crystal Ball says the reason Republicans should keep the majority is because Democrats have more vulnerable seats and their vulnerable seats are more vulnerable than Republican seats.
Of the Wisconsin Republicans, only Sean Duffy is considered vulnerable, and his seat is considered to be “likely Republican.” None of the Wisconsin Democrats are considered vulnerable.
