With A Month To Go, GOP Gains Strengthen

Political observers are getting stronger in their conviction that Republicans will retake the House in November.

Charlie Cook wrote that “it seems extremely likely that the GOP will regain control of the House, but it is less clear whether this election is headed for net seat gains in the 40s or 50s or if the number will be even higher.”

Republicans need 39 seats to take the Speaker’s gavel.

Cook was the first of the respected political forecasters to predict Republicans will retake the lower chamber. His estimates of the number of seats the GOP will gain have been rising.
