BROOKS: Right. There's the war. There's really a torpor in the administration. They're not doing anything right now. I think it's now likely to move the House--that they will lose the House. And I think House Republicans, privately, most of them admit that. For like a year they were saying, "Well, we've got it so sewed up with redistricting. We'll lose, but we won't lose the whole House." I'd say about two weeks ago the conventional wisdom shifted and people said, "We're in such trouble. We are going to lose the House." (hat tip Jesse)

I'm not so certain of this yet, but it's interesting to hear Brooks say it.

Update: Kevin Drum has a new poll listed that says Republicans might be losing their stronghold on National security.
