Gibbs says Democrats will hold house

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama's press secretary says he thinks the Democrats will keep control of the House after the fall elections.

At this time the Republicans are expected to gain between 30-34 seats. the GOP needs 39-43 to take control of the House.

Spokesman Robert Gibbs told ABC's "Good Morning America" that Democrats are running better campaigns than Republicans. Gibbs thinks his party will be successful when voters make their choices in November.

Gibbs says Democrats want to make progress on big issues and help move the country ahead. He says putting the GOP back in power would mean going back economic policies that "got us into this mess."

Gibbs' confidence about Democratic prospects follows the firestorm he created when he said that there were enough House seats in play to jeopardize the Democrats' majority.

Intrade gives the GOP a 57 per cent probability of recapturing the House which is better than even odds.
