    If The Politico is correct, desperation is setting in among the Democrats' behind-the-scenes players. According to a new report, Democrat strategists and donors are quietly conceding defeat and admitting that Republicans will maintain or expand control in the House of Representatives. What’s more, they're terrified that they've lost their hold on the Senate, so they're shifting money and resources away from House races in an effort to stave off a 2014 ballot box apocalypse.

    With Democrats’ grasp on the Senate increasingly tenuous — and the House all but beyond reach — some top party donors and strategists are moving to do something in the midterm election as painful as it is coldblooded: Admit the House can’t be won and go all in to save the Senate.

    Their calculation is uncomplicated. With only so much money to go around in an election year that is tilting the GOP’s way, Democrats need to concentrate resources on preserving the chamber they have now. Losing the Senate, they know, could doom whatever hopes Barack Obama has of salvaging the final years of his presidency.

    <YAWN> Far, far too early to make such silly statements or predictions. But it is humorous that some try.

    I wouldn't get your hopes up just yes. According to reports, the GOP is fixing to announce its own amnesty plan. If they do, then I can't imagine what they could do to get my vote ever again.

    If someone would break their habit and instead of commenting on an op they did not read go ahead and actually real it they would know this is not a prediction. The op is about the current reaction by the Dems, not the Repubs, but the Dems to the current political climate.

    The Dems current plans is to spend all their campaign funds on Senate Seats and nothing on House seats because they feel it would be a waste of funds. The Dems are already convinced that the house will remain in Repubs hands and they may lose even more seats as it is.

    Dems are currently afraid that they could very well lose Senate seats as well and so they will put their funds in those battles.
