Anticipating a Republican wave, Democrats are seeking to lower expectations for the 2010-midterm elections.
During a Wednesday appearance on MNSBC’s “Morning Joe” program, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine cited historical trends in suggesting he expects Republicans to pick up congressional seats this November.
Kaine said, “Presidential midterms since Teddy Roosevelt have been very tough. The average president loses 28 seats, four Senate seats and governors’ races. And we’re not living in average times. We’re living in times of significant economic anxiety.”
