Overall, it looks like Republicans have picked up 61 House seats, with 7 races still to be decided. All of the undecided races are in former Dem districts, so the total pickup will be between 61-68 seats. Breaking it down by region of the country provides some insight.

1 seat still undecided (NY-25)

Upper South: (VA, WV, KY, TN, NC)
Pre-election - 19 of 42 seats (45%)
PICKUP of 8 seats (3 VA, 1 WV, 3 TN, 1 NC)

Post-election - 40 of 61 seats (66%)

West Midwest: (WI, IL, IA, MN, MO)
Pre-election - 20 of 49 seats (41%)
PICKUP of 7 seats (2 WI, 3 IL, 1 MN, 1 MO)

Post-election - 35 of 47 seats (75%)

Central Plains: (OK, KS, NE, SD, ND)

Thanks for the layout. The GOP national surge is obvious especially their return in the "upper heartland" of the country. I'd say that they did quite well even in NE when you look down ticket. Taking Maine's House, Senate, and Governor's mansion is impressive and New Hampshire certainly seems flinty again.

On a 2012 note: For what it's worth the state's Mike carried in the 2008 primary picked up 10 GOP seats last night. Romney's picked up 7.

Actually looking at the data what really is striking is how the Dems are so isolated. The Republicans are actually the only truly "national" party. The Dems are Northeast and West coastal enclaves plus urban (especially minority urban) islands.

We, due to media, travel, higher education, and personal economics, have a window into "their world" but "they" (leaders like Obama and Pelosi) have practically no exposure to the great mass, both geographically and numerically, of America.
