GOP Poised to Grab Control at State Levels: When it rains, it pours!!!

Democratic leaders already braced for losses in November in congressional and gubernatorial races may be looking at grief on yet another front: A record number of state legislatures could change party control this year, with Democrats at risk of losing their majorities in more than 20 state chambers, according to a comprehensive analysis.

Electing state lawmakers will be especially important this year because the party that controls at least one chamber of the legislature typically wins a seat at the table - and a veto - in the once-a-decade redrawing of congressional districts after the 2010 census.

A survey by the Washington-based Governing magazine last week found that more chambers could change party hands in 2010 than in any other election cycle since at least 2002. Although more than 20 Democrat-controlled state chambers are in play, Republicans are in jeopardy of losing just four.

Other surveys show Republican gubernatorial candidates looking strong in many states, increasing the chance of a major shift in the balance of power in state-level politics heading into the 2012 presidential election.
The party in the White House usually loses seats at the state level in midterm elections.

Another sign of the terrible storm that is going to unlease itself on the Democratic Party for following the biggest loser in their history-Obama. They still can rip themselves away from him-for some reason?

The problem is, of course, after they are made a Lame Duck Congress by losing control/seats etc, they are going to say the Hell with It and attempt to enact whatever crazy chit they haven't done yet. TAXES for sure will be going up. Thanks good old Americans aka: Loyalist to the Democratic Party. Thanks a lot.
