Reuters Calls Midterms Early, Goes Home to Wife and Kids

Well, so much for attempting the big comeback/horse race or “the polls are starting to tighten” shtick that invariably starts to happen around this time. Or as Paul Chesser of the American Spectator notes in his headline, “Reuters: It’s Over in the House:”

Here’s the Reuters article he links to:

American voters unhappy at high unemployment are poised to oust President Barack Obama’s Democrats from control of the U.S. House of Representatives in November 2 elections, a new Reuters-Ipsos poll found on Wednesday.The national poll found that Americans by a margin of 48 percent to 44 percent plan to vote for Republicans over Democratic candidates, an edge that is likely to allow Republicans to pick up dozens of seats in the House and make big gains in the U.S. Senate.

Ipsos pollster Cliff Young said the poll numbers show Republicans would win around 227 seats in the House to 208 for the Democrats.

Even the Huffington Post is running headlines such as this.
