A leading nonpartisan analyst, Larry Sabato (Sabato’s Crystal Ball), just published an article predicting Democrats will retake the House majority this fall, and explaining the forecasting model that points in this direction.  No one should relax or rest on their laurels, but hopefully this begins to dispel the conventional wisdom that the House won’t be in play until after the next redistricting.  Democrats take heart (and get to work)!
