Washington, July 19 (ANI): US Vice President Joe Biden has admitted that the Democrats will lose seats in Congress, but added, "It won't be that bad."

"I think we're going to shock the heck out of everybody. We're going to win the House and we're going to win the Senate. We're not going to lose either one of those bodies," Biden said in an interview on ABC's "This Week"

That bold prediction came exactly a week after White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs admitted that enough seats are in play this fall that Democrats could lose control of the House of Representatives.

It might have been a simple statement of fact and mathematical possibilities, but Republicans smelled blood, calling it "Gibbs-gate" and proclaiming they will retake the House.

The most recent ABC News poll found that while voters don't have much confidence in Democrats in Congress, just 32 percent, the confidence rate for Republicans is only 26 percent. So, Democrats are continuing to label Republicans as the party of "no." (ANI)
