In response, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is conducting presentations to “endangered members and their teams,” showing the results of their internal polling and focus group findings, urging them to not ignore the attacks. 

If Democrats don’t answer Republican hits, the party operatives warned, the GOP’s lead on the generic ballot balloons to 14 points from 4 points — a dismal prediction for Democrats when the GOP only needs to win five seats to seize back the majority. But when voters heard a Democratic response to that hit, Republicans’ edge narrowed back down to 6 points, giving candidates more of a fighting chance, especially since those numbers don’t factor in Democrats going on the offensive. …
