Obama and the unpopularity question

Look at any of the post-mortems of the big Democratic losses in the 2010 election, and one conclusion is nearly universal: President Obama is unpopular. He hurt his party, the logic goes, because the American public has fallen out of love with a man who flew into office with such high expectations. But is Obama really all that unpopular? And did he actually hurt Democrats all that much? Even some Republicans say the answers are no and no.

Democrats face tough climb back to the House majority in 2012

While House Democrats will almost certainly pick up seats in the 2012 election, it looks tough -- though not impossible -- at this VERY early date to imagine they will re-take the majority they lost in November thanks to a combination of micro and macro political factors.
