55 Seats?

From Human Events:

Nationally-recognized pollster Scott Rasmussen last night predicted that Republicans would gain 55 seats in races for the U.S. House of Representatives November 2—much more than the 39 needed for a Republican majority in the House for the first time since 2006…

I’ve been wary of making such predictions this year and Rasmussen has always been cautious. But its time for everyone to really grasp how bad its getting for Democrats. I’m figuring that 55 is the low end – if turnout models prove correct, it could go a lot higher than that.

But let’s just fight as if we’re barely going to get 39. Anything beyond that is gravy. Our only purpose in 2010 is to stop the Obama Socialism Express. We can’t do a lot to reverse course while Obama is in the White House, but we must obtain the power to say, “thus far, and no further”. We can start working on the roll back in the 2012 campaign, which will start in the summer of 2011.

Don’t let up for a minute – and if you’re local races are all a lock for the GOP, then look around to find challengers elsewhere who can use some help.
