Less than two weeks ago until Election Day while there's a lot of talk about the presidential race.
We need to make sure we continue to watch was happening and the balance of power in the house.
Seats -- the Democrats won -- and there's been a lot of speculation about who is gonna control of the house.
Going forward right now the crystal ball finally says.
That they believe.
It is going to remain in republic game.
Hands they're gonna retain the house -- Condit is a political analyst -- the University of Virginia center for politics behind this crystal ball of course how.
-- the confidence that Republicans are going to maintain the majority.
So for many months now it's kind of look like Democrats would pick up you know somewhere in the mid single digits in house seats and that really hasn't changed all that much now for months and so.
You know with twelve days to go before the election that just doesn't seem to be the wave building that we've seen in the last couple cycles.
That would tell us the Democrats have a shot to take the house and so.
Democrats are probably gain seats they may even gain double digit seeds but they need to to take 25 seats to win a house I just don't think they can do it -- As you take a look at some of the swing states -- were talking so much about like Ohio like New Hampshire.
-- do you see any indication by that the way to house races are going for -- which way that -- is going to vote for the White House.
Yeah I mean there are some.
-- -- -- New Hampshire Ohio and -- are all.
Heavily contested states and there are some house races that may.
I'll go the way the presidential race in those states and Democrats could very well pick up some seats there but.
Again even if they pick up seats -- in those places it's probably not enough to actually win the house.
Cattle and 2010.
When we had a of these elections for -- for the house the Tea Party was -- -- guy movements that really influenced the way.
Those in the house.
Why is he -- what was the choice of the American people a lot of it was these these new.
These new politicians these new Tea Party here's what you think is going to find that the personalities are the character.
Those that are entering in 2012 is it similar Tea Party I -- -- for Republicans is -- something that defines Democrats when he.
-- -- I don't think that the the Tea Party brand has been played up as much in this election.
Obviously -- won't call Mitt Romney in a Tea Party candidate and I think that Romney's personality has kind of maybe trickle down to some of the house races a lot of house candidates in more moderate areas aren't really taking on the Tea Party label.
But you know I think that the -- that the house of the Republican leadership is pretty conservative at this point.
And I think we should probably expect to see a fairly conservative house.
Even though there may be some members elected in 2010 who may be your attacking -- the middle as they face you know their first reelection challenge going to be very interesting to see just how all the dynamics.
I come together Kyle thank you very much -- hadn't.
