The GOP Has a Huge Advantage in the Midterm Elections

"For all their internal divisions and long-term worries as a party, political scientists and historical trends give Republicans a clear edge in the upcoming 2014 congressional elections," TPM reports.

"Forget Obamacare, forget the government shutdown and forget the skirmish over the minimum wage. While these issues are atop the political conversation, mid-term elections are better understood by fundamentals like the economy and presidential popularity, voter turnout tendencies and the specific dynamics at play in the House and Senate."

"In short, the deck is stacked against Democrats on Nov. 4, barring a drastic shift in the political landscape between now and then."
