The pessimistic public (and what it means)

Americans may have put Republicans back in charge of the House and strengthened the party's hand in the Senate but there is little excitement about the elections results or optimism about the future, according to a new Pew poll.

The Obama Republicans

The silver lining of the 60 seat (and counting) loss by House Democrats is that they are likely to have a fair number of targets on friendly ground come 2012. All told, 63 Republicans in the 112th Congress will hold seats that President Obama carried in 2008 and, of that group, 13 will hold seats that Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) also won in the 2004 presidential race.
