Fox News is projecting that the Republicans will take control of the House of Representatives from the Democrats with a likely pick-up of around 60 seats, give or take a few.
As it is likely that the power in the Senate will be retained by Democrats, the overwhelming sweep by the Republicans an their takeover of the House is major news. As is the transfer of power from Pelosi to Boehner.
Topics that helped get voters out include the economy and health care. And, it is these hot issues, among others, that helped get people out early and in advance.
It is only the hope of many people across America that the outcome and enthusiasm from these elections is carried through to 2012.
