Democrats' hopes to take House could stumble in Minnesota

U.S. House races in Kansas, Ohio too close to call, but Trump's picks lead (UPDATED)

"Nancy Pelosi is the minority leader, Donald Trump is the president, Ryan is the Speaker of the House, McConnell is the majority leader - running against Nancy Pelosi is like running against George W. Bush in 2010, which Democrats tried to do, it didn't work", stated republican pollster Jim Hobart.

As for speculation about a "blue wave" in the midterm elections, Chaffetz acknowledged that in a non-presidential election it is common for the party that holds the White House to lose some congressional seats.

Meanwhile, 79% of independents said that Pelosi should be replaced, while 91% of Republicans said they should pick a new leader.

More than two dozen Democratic House candidates won't commit to supporting Pelosi, according to a recent report from The Washington Post. Election handicappers see Democrats as having a good chance of taking back the House in November's midterms.

"Now she is the number one albatross around the Democrats' necks", Chaffetz said, adding the only reason Pelosi is still a leader in her party is because she has been successful at fundraising.

Reached for comment, Drew Hammill, Pelosi's spokesman, argued that the poll was "designed to generate a negative result for Leader Pelosi".

An Associated Press analysis has found that Democratic voters have a consistent enthusiasm advantage with almost a dozen federal special elections now concluded ahead of the November elections.
