    They lost 8.

    The GOP majority in the House took a hit on November 6th, 2012. The GOP’s significant 242-193 seat majority in the chamber was reduced by eight seats and will be 234-200 when the new Congress convenes in January (a special election in IL is set for Jesse Jackson Jr’s seat).
    Republicans narrowly lost the national House popular vote. At last count the numbers were 58,829,851 votes for Democrats and 57,825,039 votes for the GOP House candidate. Ultimately, this resulted in the GOP losing several seats, largely limited to four states (FL, CA, NH and IL). In NH the GOP lost both House seats, in Illinois they lost three, in California they lost four and in Florida they lost two seats. But beyond these four states the GOP suffered minimal damage. So these results bring up the interesting question of whether the GOP House majority, considering it survived relatively unscathed the Obama reelection, can stand until 2022 (when the lines are redrawn for a new election).

    So a loss of only 8 seats in the house and 2 in the Senate is being treated like some kind of GOP Armageddon due to "loss of the Hispanic vote" ?

    How ridiculous.

    This means that the Tea Party revolution is still in full swing because the GOP gained
    60 House seats, 6 Senate seats and 7 governorships in 2010!

    Actually 10 seats isn't very many considering this was a presidential election year and a Democrat won. I suspect things will be very different in 2014 since the Dems won't be riding in on Obama's coattails. Many Obama supporters were there for Obama and voted straight ticket. No Obama in 2014 equals fewer liberal voters, especially from the black community.

    If McCain and Rubio get their way, will there even be a GOP in 2014?
