DCCC chairman Steve Israel said Democrats have "the wind now at our backs." He credited Rep. Allyson Schwartz, who heads recruiting for the DCCC, with picking up candidates ahead of schedule.
"Buyer's remorse has set in with Independent voters across the country who are reject the Republican agenda that ends Medicare and fails to create jobs while protecting special interests and the ultra wealthy at the expense of the middle class and seniors," Israel said in a statement.
Meanwhile, Democrats are happy with results from two new surveys that show them leading in Congressional contests. A Reuters/Ipsos poll shows Democrats winning the generic ballot test by eight points, 48 percent to 40 percent, while an NBC/Wall Street Journal poll showed voters preferring a Democratic Congress by a 44 percent to 41 percent margin.
