Polls of 61 Districts Show Dems Could Win Sizable House Majority Next Year

A new set of post-shutdown polls, commissioned by MoveOn.org Political Action, show Democrats not only have an opportunity to take back the House of Representatives next year, but could win a sizable majority if voter anger over the shutdown carries into 2014.

Generic Democrats now lead GOP incumbents in 37 of 61 districts polled since the beginning of the government shutdown.

Public Policy Polling, which conducted the polls, describes the results in further detail in this memo:
