  4. Carney
  5. Cooper (Retired) X
  6. Dahlkemper
  7. Driehaus

  40. Shea-Porter

  43. Stupak (Retired) X
  44. Titus
  45. Wilson (OH)

Note that both Meek’s and Kilpatrick’s seats were retained by Democrats.

These are still pending, but would bring the tally up to 53 if they should lose:

  1. Bean
  2. Ortiz
  3. Connolly (VA)
  4. McNerney
  5. Larsen (WA)
  6. Maffei
  7. Giffords
  8. Costa

Also, there were 16 Obamacare supporters who came from districts that had voted for McCain in 2008. Twelve of these seats have flipped to Republicans:

  1. Carney
  2. Ellsworth
  3. Hill
  4. Kirkpatrick (AZ)
  5. Mitchell
  6. Mollohan
  7. Perriello
  8. Pomeroy
  9. Salazar
  10. Snyder
  11. Spratt
  12. Wilson

On the other hand, John Murtha’s seat was maintained, and both Rahall and Space’s seats were safe.
