Democrats Privately Fear House Slipping Away

"Top Democrats are growing markedly more pessimistic about holding the House, privately conceding that the summertime economic and political recovery they were banking on will not likely materialize by Election Day," Politico reports.

"In conversations with more than two dozen party insiders, most of whom requested anonymity to speak candidly about the state of play, Democrats in and out of Washington say they are increasingly alarmed about the economic and polling data they have seen in recent weeks."

Meanwhile, the latest CQ-Roll Call survey of the political landscape "finds an environment that continues to worsen for Democrats and new race ratings to reflect Republicans on the ascent."
