Polls Suggest GOP May Re-Take House, Make Senate Gains

Boston – Appearing on the stump to benefit Governor Deval Patrick, President Barack Obama counseled a cheering crowd of 10,000, “The worst thing we could do is go back to a philosophy that nearly destroyed our economy.”

The President said the “grinding” work of “actually delivering change” is difficult. “I know it can be frustrating.”

Though he and the rest of the top leadership of the Democratic Party are predicting retention of a House of Representatives majority and control of the Senate, recent polls tell a different story. The numbers are indicating a loss of Democratic majority in the House of Representatives and GOP gains in the Senate.

Mr. Obama said of Republican candidates, “They thought they could ride people's anger and frustration all the way to the ballot box...

“There is no doubt that this is a difficult election. That's because we've been through an incredibly difficult time as a nation.”

He called on Democrats to show up on election day.

“I need all of you to be clear. “Over the next two weeks this election is a choice and the stakes could not be higher.”

Early voting begins Monday.
