Big Losses for Dems in 2010?

Bad news for the Democrats: Respected political analyst Charlie Cook is projecting that the Democrats could lose over 20 seats in Congress in 2010. According to the Cook Political Report, the situation this summer “has slipped completely out of control for President Obama and Congressional Democrats.” According to the report, “the chances of Democratic losses going higher than 20 seats are just as good as the chances of Democratic losses going lower than 20 seats.” The fact that Obama is losing control of the debate even as the economy rebounds “underscores how much the President’s and his party’s legislative agenda have contributed to these poor poll numbers.”
