GOP on Pace to Win House, Gain in Senate

Ad Feedback

The midterm elections are only six days away, and the candidates are sprinting to the finish line. The latest poll numbers show Democrats in a losing race to keep control of the U.S. House of Representatives.

The Republicans need to win only 39 seats to take control of the House.

A recent ABC News poll shows 107 Democratic seats are in jeopardy -- with 64 of those seats either as going leaning Republican or still as pure tossups.

"I haven't seen anything that makes me think there will be a drastic change in the public mood or trends in the next week," Republican strategist Kevin Madden told Reuters. "It feels like the concrete was poured on the major issues months ago."

In the U.S. Senate races, the struggle for control is turning ugly and one of those telling races is for President Barack Obama's old Senate seat.

"What an amazing signal it would send to take the Barack Obama seat and make it the Mark Kirk seat," said Ari Fleischer, Republican strategist.

The president filled out his early absentee ballot on Tuesday.
