Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) struck a confident chord Sunday in an interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos.
"If the election were held today, you think the Democrats would win?" Stephanopoulos asked.
"Yes, I do," Pelosi, the Democratic minority leader, said. Pelosi
noted that current House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) had himself
predicted about a one-in-three chance that Republicans would lose the
House. "What he did say that was correct was that there are about 50
Republican seats in play. I would say 75. I feel pretty good about where
we are," Pelosi said.
