Mitt Romney's campaign pollster, Neil Newhouse, said this morning that 2012 looks like a "potentially wave election" and he believes it will be an "extension" of the Republican wave of 2010. "Republicans can't wait for this election," Newhouse said at a breakfast sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor.

While Newhouse cautioned that predictions a year out from the election are difficult to make, he predicted the GOP would win control of the Senate and most likely retain control of the House of Representatives. "Republicans could win more seats in the House," Newhouse said.

Democrats currently have a slight edge over the GOP in an average of the generic congressional ballot.
