the GOP will take control of Congress

If President Obama hangs onto his job in November, the thrill of his victory will be short-lived: Barron’s predicts that Republicans will wrest control of the Senate from the Democrats, who’ve led the chamber since 2006, and that the GOP will strengthen its hold on the House. An analysis of this fall’s 33 Senate races sees Republicans poised to pick up at least three seats, for a 50-49 Senate, with one independent, overturning Democrats’ current 53-47 advantage. We also see the GOP adding a seat in the House, pushing its majority up to 243-192.
