  •  that is cool (0+ / 0-)

    but those Republican districts are the ones we need to win.  Aside from any true LaTourette's Syndrome in some of them.

    ...better the occasional faults of a government that lives in a spirit of charity, than the consistent omissions of a government frozen in the ice of its own indifference. -FDR, 1936

      I think MI-06, PA-06, and PA-08 have some pretty obvious LaTourette's Syndrome going on there. FL-13 does too, but that may owe more to Rep. Bill Young being so deeply entrenched than to the district simply being far more Republican at the local level than the presidential toplines would suggest. Ditto WA-08 and IA-03.

      Our candidates in CO-06, NY-19, NV-03, and to a lesser extent CA-10 weren't as great as we might have hoped. Romanoff could probably beat Rep. Coffman in 2014; Erin Bilbray could likely beat Rep. Joe Heck; not sure about our bench in the other two.

      looking at how downballot Dems typical do, generic D should underperform (in an open seat maybe) relative to Obama in:
      AZ-09
      CO-06
      FL-13
      MI-06
      NV-03
      NY-18
      NY-18
      NY-21
      PA-06
      PA-08
      WA-08

      At least those are the ones I've crunched the numbers for already.

    •  Unfortunately for Dems (0+ / 0-)

      the Dem-leaning Republican seats that trended D mostly did so very mildly, while most of the ones that trended Republican did so by a larger amount.

      FL-27    Ros-Lehtinen, Ileana    (R)        53.27%    48.80%    4.47%
      NY-11    Grimm, Michael    (R)        52.17%    48.48%    3.69%
      CA-21    Valadao, David    (R)        55.66%    53.06%    2.60%
      CA-31    Miller, Gary    (R)        58.49%    57.73%    0.75%
      CA-10    Denham, Jeff    (R)        51.84%    51.55%    0.30%
      VA-04    Forbes, Randy    (R)        49.34%    49.24%    0.10%
      VA-02    Rigell, Scott    (R)        50.76%    50.86%    -0.10%
      NY-22    Hanna, Richard    (R)        49.80%    50.00%    -0.20%
      stand out as notably D-trending, while:
      WI-08    Ribble, Reid    (R)        47.77%    54.41%    -6.63%
      IL-06    Roskam, Peter    (R)        45.83%    52.03%    -6.20%
      IL-13    Davis, Rodney    (R)        49.85%    55.60%    -5.75%
      WI-07    Duffy, Sean    (R)        48.43%    54.01%    -5.58%
      IL-16    Kinzinger, Adam    (R)        46.08%    50.92%    -4.84%
      PA-06    Gerlach, Jim    (R)        48.73%    53.54%    -4.80%
      MI-06    Upton, Fred    (R)        49.29%    54.02%    -4.73%
      MI-08    Rogers, Mike J.    (R)        48.44%    52.85%    -4.41%
      PA-15    Dent, Charlie    (R)        48.53%    52.79%    -4.26%
      NV-03    Heck, Joe    (R)        50.41%    54.54%    -4.13%
      NE-02    Terry, Lee    (R)        46.46%    50.51%    -4.04%
      CA-49    Issa, Darrell    (R)        46.59%    50.52%    -3.93%
      PA-08    Fitzpatrick, Michael    (R)        49.95%    53.79%    -3.84%
      MI-11    Bentivolio, Kerry    (R)        47.28%    50.96%    -3.69%
      PA-16    Pitts, Joe    (R)        46.91%    50.55%    -3.65%
      WI-01    Ryan, Paul    (R)        47.88%    51.37%    -3.49%
      MI-07    Walberg, Tim    (R)        48.43%    51.73%    -3.30%
      WA-03    Herrera Beutler, Jaime    (R)        49.13%    51.94%    -2.81%
      stand out as notably R-trending. Some of that is likely just campaign effects, like the increased Republican effort in MI and WI relative to 2008.  But those PA seats are looking pretty solid for Team R, I think, especially since the incumbents are reasonably strong.

      27, Dem, Dude seeing a dude, CT-04(originally), PA-02/NY-10 (formerly PA-02/NY-12, then PA-02/NY-14).
