No surprise: Democrats and Republicans differ on election predictions

(CNN) - Will an anti-incumbent wave return Republicans to power in the House and Senate, or can Democrats engineer a late rush to hold on to their congressional majorities?

The 2010 mid-term elections comes down to campaign basics in the final nine days until vote-counting begins.

For now, the two parties agree that Republicans will win more seats than they currently hold, but they differ sharply on how many and whether a major power shift will occur.

    Major power shift will come. Republicans will have a large majority in the House. It will be enough to start the investigations on the White House for things like the bribe he tried on Sestak as well as others. Chicago style Politics dies on Nov. 2nd. the criminal behavior will be brought to justice.
