Politically Speaking: 2010: Can GOP count on gains?

Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking

Shortly into President George W. Bush's second term, by mid/late-2005
the possibility of the Republican Party seeing electoral losses in
2006 began to be discussed. That's what happened. In 2007, the
perception that the 2008 elections would again be favorable for
Democrats took hold, and lo, it occurred. We're hearing a lot now
that, with the dropping national approval rate of President Obama at a
time of energy and health care reform measures and some unease with
Iowa Gov. Chet Culver here over the state budget, 2010 is tracking
well for Republicans. After all, history has shown presidents
typically see a paring back in the number of federal seats held by his
party.
