Rating the 118 Competitive House Races for 2010 - GOP Now at +27

In our latest update of 2010 Competitive House Races, we now project Republicans to pickup 27 seats, cutting the Democrat majority in the House to 230-205. In addition, there are now 22 seats rated as a "tossup," and the field of competitive seats has expanded to 118 seats.

The potential for Republicans to gain an additional 13 seats to get to the magic number of 40 that would give them control of the House of Representatives, is very good right now.

Of course, it is a long way to November, and events could change everything very quickly. But the climate is getting stronger and stronger for Republicans. We'll update the House Chart at least weekly, and more often as polling data comes in.

Go to our 2010 Competitive House Races page to see all the information.

This is maddening.

If the GOP can only get to 200-205 seats I fear we might not be having elections much longer.

I'm just paranoid right now, I guess.

I think the GOP is in great shape. We have rated it at +27 right now, but there are 22 "tossup" races. The GOP needs 13 of the 22 to take back the House. In addition, there are other races we left at "Dem Hold" just because there is no data to base a change. As we get into the early Fall, look for more of those to move into the "tossup" or "GOP Pickup" column.

It's not a sure thing, but the GOP has a great chance at winning back the House.

Okay, I'm not paranoid anymore.

That makes me feel much better.
