Poll: No major changes in image of parties

Washington (CNN) - A new poll suggests that the results of the midterm elections did not alter Americans' views of the two political parties.

A Gallup survey released Monday morning indicates that 43 percent of Americans have a favorable view of the Democratic party following the elections, down just one point from the 44 percent who said they had a favorable view of the party prior to the midterms.

NRA Endorses Candidates on Both Sides, Frustrating GOP

Fairfax, VA (CNN) - Republicans are pressing their supporters to pull out the stops in the effort to retake the House in November's elections, but one of their frequent allies – the National Rifle Association – is still endorsing candidates in either party.

The gun-rights group has endorsed over 200 Republican candidates for Congress, but it has also endorsed 64 Democrats – including a number of incumbents who Republicans believe may be vulnerable, like Chet Edwards in Texas, Stephanie Herseth Sandlin in South Dakota, and Tom Perriello in Virginia.

The Sweep: How did it come to this?

(CNN) - The House has just adjourned - a week early -to go home so Democrats can run for their political lives. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, ardent as ever, calls in a group of journalists to make her pitch about the productive Congress - and begins with a list of achievements (health care, Wall Street reform, stimulus, small business jobs act).

"I'm so proud of it," she says, sounding like a parent examining a brilliant report card, beaming.

But near the end of the session, the tough, pragmatic Pelosi - the one who has the uphill battle to keep her speakership, the one Republicans boast they want to "fire" - let something slip through her relentlessly upbeat analysis. The unemployment rate, she admits, is a tough reality - and manna for the Republicans.

With election losses certain, Democrats discuss the way forward

(CNN) – Democrats know they are going to lose congressional seats in the November elections. The question is what can they do to minimize the damage?

With less than a month to voting day, even the most ardent Democrat conceded on Sunday talk shows that the outlook wasn't rosy.

They differed on whether they can retain majorities in both the House and Senate, with the House considered more vulnerable, but all agreed there will be fewer of them working in Congress next year.
