Democrats Grow Confident that They will Regain Control of the House

According to Steve Israel, the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee on Tuesday, the Democrats have "gone from a gale force wind" to a "sustained breeze" against them.

Democrats are optimistic that they will regain the House of Representatives in the November election. They would need to capture 25 seats to take back the House from Republican control. Although most analysts see on 5 to 10 seats returning to Democratic control, the Democrats are still optimistic.

What has happened since the 2010 election which swept in the Republicans? The economy has slightly improved. Tea Partiers may also feel that the Republican members sent to Congress are not living up to their promise. Fiscal conservatism has gone out the window and Republicans have not held their ground on many of the spending issues.

Instead of holding firm on spending cuts, Republicans have compromised themselves into a corner.
