Will regressives lose the House in 2014?

This PPP poll seems to think so. According to them the Dems need to pick up 17 seats and polling in 17 districts seem to indicate that the govt. shutdown has caused a shift in public opinion to the point of a change. We can only hope. It is becoming increasingly obvious that the regressives would rather burn down the house with everyone in it than give in to actually helping most of the rest of us. Their Party has a grave sickness in its death throes that doesn't care what harm it causes it the wake of its self destruction. One even admitted that they pride is what is keeping them from budging on the shutdown. Pride is more important than the actual lives of millions of people? Think about that.

I look forward to the day when the Dems control all 3 branches again. The next step is for the Progressive caucus to gain strength and split from the Dem Party, the latter of which is now more like the Republican Party of old. If we're going to have a 2-party system, and it seems likely for the next 50 or so years, then let it be the Progressives and the Dems. The Republican Party has without doubt proven that it is defunct and destined for the trash heap in history.
