US Democrats hopeful ahead of vote

In what are either last-minute head games or reflections on a shifting electorate, Democrats are predicting better-than-expected results for their side while Republicans are downplaying the extent of their expected victory in Tuesday’s congressional elections. With less than 48 hours before polling booths open, the comments on Sunday talk shows stayed true to the anticipated Republican gains in both chambers of Congress but continued to differ widely on exact totals, CNN said. Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele was unwilling to project over-confidence, telling CNN’s “State of the Union” program that even coming close to the 39 additional seats needed to win back majority control of the House would equal GOP success. On the other side, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine said he expects some losses, but not enough to give up majority control of either the House or Senate.
