Gallup poll numbers suggest tomorrow’s Republican victory could be the largest in generations, and could exceed all predictions. Key quote:

It should be noted, however, that this year’s 15-point gap in favor of the Republican candidates among likely voters is unprecedented in Gallup polling and could result in the largest Republican margin in House voting in several generations. This means that seat projections have moved into uncharted territory, in which past relationships between the national two-party vote and the number of seats won may not be maintained.

    Yay for our founders original plans!

    “The House of Representatives is so constituted as to support in the members an habitual recollection of their dependence on the people,” the framers wrote Federalist papers, in support of biennial elections to the House proposed in the newly written Constitution.

    “Before the sentiments impressed on their minds by the mode of their elevation can be effaced by the exercise of power, they will be compelled to anticipate the moment when their power is to cease, when their exercise of it is to be reviewed, and when they must descend to the level from which they were raised.”

    Whether it is Democrats or Republicans surfing a wave, “change” elections were all part of the plan.
