It’s crunch time for Democrats in this year’s midterm elections, and the majority party finds itself in a major vise – likely to lose big in the US House of Representatives and lucky to keep their slim control of the US Senate.

Finishing up his last-minute campaigning Sunday, his voice harsh from so many rallies, President Obama feels the pressure too. His name may not be on the ballot, but his agenda and his reputation surely are.

Some analysts are saying he’ll be in a better position when resurgent Republicans (even less popular than Democrats) actually have to legislate rather than just say “No.” But it always hurts to lose.
