Fewer Than 1/4 of House Districts Competitive

Democrats face an uphill battle as they seek to retake the House majority they lost in 2010, writes The Cook Political Report’s Charlie Cook. The chamber has largely sorted itself out. With 96% of Democratic House members representing districts carried by Obama and 94% of Republican House lawmakers representing districts won by Romney, each party pretty much has the intended seats. That means either party would require one heck of a head of steam to pick up a lot of seats from the other side,” Cook writes.
