Democratic dreams of taking back the House in 2012 had always been a long-shot.

Now, it looks like that dream is dead. From AFP:

Mitt Romney's Republican Party was projected Tuesday to maintain control of the House of Representatives amid tight races for the Senate and the White House, US television networks said. The projections are in line with pre-election expectations due to a lack of competitive seats in the House of Representatives, where Republicans won control in mid-term polls in 2010.
