Democrats dreaming of a ‘wave’ election; is it a possibility?


A new Democracy Corps poll finds Democrats with an advantage in the most vulnerable tier of Republican congressional districts.

“These members, on average, are barely ahead of their challengers and are as vulnerable as the incumbents in 2006, 2008 and 2010. Those elections we now know crystallized earlier — in 2010, incumbent vulnerability translated into anti-Democratic voting by March as health care came to a close in 2010. These incumbents are equally vulnerable but have not yet paid the price for the Ryan budget and their priorities, but it is clear that their support is now falling.”
