Republicans could be at risk of losing the House of Representatives in 2014, according to the first battleground poll from PPP since the government shutdown. In 17 districts, generic Democrats are leading a GOP incumbent among registered voters.

A separate poll where there is an announced opponent in a CA race, the opponent is showing a 12 point lead right now.

Well, it should cost them the House and a lot more. Wake up and VOTE THEM OUT before our country and we are destroyed beyond all repair. Their goal is to kill the government, they don't care what happens to us. Just to rape and pillage the government and walk away even richer than they already are. They have been trying for years to get their hands on our Pensions and Social Security and Medicare funds. Greedy lumps of trash. WAKE UP, VOTERS, WE ARE THE ONES WHO CAN FIX THIS WITH OUT VOTES, before we lose that right too.

We need to wake up & vote out these a-holes who CLEARLY are not working for us.

I certainly hope so - this is a red state but today I overheard two people really railing against Congress - too bad today isn't a vote day...

Who doesn't want more women in Govt to bring common sense back particular members of the democratic party.

Reps. Kyrsten Sinema, Tulsi Gabbard and Terri Sewell have taken the fight to House Republicans, fiercely opposing GOP efforts to callously slash food stamps, defund the Affordable Care Act and double student loan rates for millions of families across the country.

Noted. Emotions are running high. Especially since Congress went ahead and allowed the Pentagon to be funded, while still not taking care of hungry babies, hungry seniors, children in need, and ALL those most deserving of our tax dollars. So, the war machine continues, and we had absolutely no say.
The GOP definitely deserves to lose the House, but we must get rid of Blue Dogs and other conservative Dems and replace them with true Progressives who also align themselves with "Greens."

I sincerely hope they do lose the house and the democrats make better use of their power next time than they did in 2010.

Government shutdown could cost Republicans the House? Good Lord, we can only hope!

Enjoying watching their house of horrors crumble. Will the voters remember this, will they take a stand and vote them out or will they listen to more lies and excuses once again? The Koch Bros has the Tea Party running the show with all the scare tactics they can muster and the dumbed down radicals have taken the bait and are cheering the shut-down. Just wait till the idiots have to worry about collecting their SS checks or Medicare benefits, maybe, just maybe, they'll see what fools they are.

Noted. In my opinion the Republicans don't deserve to get any votes.
Thanks for posting Carrielll.
The most important thing to me right now, is for you to get better Carrie.
