Can Democrats win back the Senate and the House?

It's conceivable that the Democrats can win (or rather, the Republicans can lose) back the Senate and the House this November. How likely is it?

Not sure. Nobody is. I don't think we'll know until a day or two after the elections.

James Carville, Bill Clinton's strategist during his successful run against then-current President George H.W. Bush, has this to say:

"We have to go back to 1974 (during Watergate) to find such a favorable environment. If we can't win in this environment, we have to question the whole premise of the party."

There's never been a truer statement made (at least in the 2nd sentence). Good luck.
