Politico: Democrats will see heavy losses in 2010

Some of the most prominent and respected handicappers can now envision an election in which Democrats suffer double-digit losses in the House — not enough to provide the 40 seats necessary to return the GOP to power but enough to put them within striking distance.

Read it all here.

So the Democrats are in trouble. Having their own constituents removed by armed security guards at town-hall meetings is probably not going to win any votes.

So far groups opposing the White House's policies have shown commitment and resilience, despite relentess and vicious attacks from media outlets and Democrats (and no, I do not think criticism is the same as attacking). The momentum they have built needs to be maintained in order for change to become reality. Batten down the hatches, it is going to get nasty.
