Three’s Better Than None
Another National Review “Corner” quickie: how many seats California will contribute to the Republicans’ House landslide?
Figure it this way: the Golden State’s 53-member delegation accounts for nearly one-eighth of the entire House. If the GOP gain tomorrow night is a “mere” 40, then California should chip in 5 to the total.
Push the landslide higher — 55 or 60 seats — and California’s share should amount to 7 or 8.
My guess: three — and that’s being optimistic.
The take might be as little as one or two seats.
I can also see California Democrats coming away damage-free.
You can thank redistricting for this.
Well, that, and California’s counter-current voting mindset (not as amped up about cap-and-trade, Obama and Obamacare as the rest of the nation).
Still, three’s better than none. No?
