Are democrats feeling desperate because Bob Beckel said there is no hope for Democrats in the next election?

Do you agree with him?

  • I think both sides are feeling desperate.


    Dems should lose more seats , according to history...


    but  "Tea Party" candidates are driving away some moderates....it may even help people that SHOULD go like Harry Reid.


    Its the Republicans race to lose at this point.

  • Well, it's pretty traditional, that's how it goes. That's why it's called the "lame duck" session. I am wondering how the tea party will play in tho.

    I'm really hoping it doesn't split the conservative vote. Little bit worried about it.

  • I think we're going to see 1966 all over again!! Woot!


    The following explains the amazing similarities leading up to the 1966 mid-term elections, that toppled Democratic control. If you were to put the year 2010 in place of 1966, the same article would read almost as true as current events!

  • Oh wow....no wonder I didn't recognize the Dude's name...he blabs on Fox News network! WHeewwwww.
    I would never assume to know or even guess what will happen in the future. And I won't be arrogant and boast that I might have an opinion on any of this. No guesses.
    I am patient and I will just wait......

  • gertie, why don't you google Bob Beckel before you bash the question. He is a well respected Democrat that happens to work for Fox. His job is to express the opposing view.

    I can't stand Beckel, but I like him! Does that make any sense? I was shocked to hear his comment. IMO it must be BAD BAD if Beckel has thrown in the towel.

    I like watching the Beckel brothers together. They must have great holiday get togethers!
