Republicans Predict an Obama Rebuff, Democrats Foresee Surprise

Republicans Haley Barbour and Sarah Palin cast the Nov. 2 election as a repudiation of President Barack Obama’s policies and a “political earthquake” that will blow Democrats out of office.

Democrats, in making their closing arguments to voters on the Sunday talk shows, said their party may still keep control of the House of Representatives. If they don’t, voters will expect Republicans to compromise with Obama in order to trim the budget deficit, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine warned on NBC’s “Meet the Press” program.
