House seats still moving toward GOP

Yesterday as I made my predictions, RealClear Politics was showing 123 safe Democrat seats and 163 safe Republican seats.

Today, while checking, RCP had changed those numbers to 121/163.  That means 2 seats for the Dems have moved out of “safe” and into “likely”.

Additionally 3 have moved from “likely” to “leans” Dem and 6 have moved from “leans” Dem to toss up (34 toss ups yesterday, 40 today).

Not a good trend if you’re  a Democrat hoping for a miracle.

RCP now has it +65 for the GOP.  I’ll stick with my +61.

Quote of the day – Halloween edition

It comes from a tweet by Scott Ott (Scrappleface):

Halloween relies on voluntary participation of non-beneficiaries. If trick-or-treaters had guns, holiday would be called "Government".

And there you have it in a nutshell.
