The scales have finally tipped in the favor of the Republicans, just like the political pundits and crystal ball clairvoyants predicted. Republicans have won the control of the House, yet it is not the kind of sweeping victory that everyone was predicting; nevertheless, it is a substantial one. The Tea Part movement, backed by Sarah Palin, has helped Republicans gain its footing but with change of faces. As for the Democrats, it’s no longer a matter of defeat rather the scale of this defeat and its consequences.
The mid-term election fever has reached full pitch in its final week, and the candidates are pushing forward their campaigns in an attempt to rally more supporters and votes. Democrats and Republics are rattling their sabers, vying for the control of the Mother Ship – the Congress, and it seems that Republicans have a strong edge, according to the opinion polls at least. The weak national economy and job security concerns are tipping the scales.
