More Republican signs among the House races.

A few noteworthy developments among House races:

Rep. Charles Djou, R-Hawaii, is one of the Democrats’ top three targets this year, just because his district is so heavily Democratic. But he’s still in it. According to a poll by the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, he stands at 48 percent and clings to a three-point lead. Here’s his “air cover” from the NRCC:

Charlie Cook moved IN-2 (Donnelly) to “toss-up” last week. This is the least likely of three Indiana districts to flip, and it will be one of the first to report on election night after the polls close at 6 p.m. Eastern. If it goes Republican, then Republican control of the House is all but assured, and pickups may be larger than expected.

A new Politico poll shows that “independent voters are ready to boot Democrats from office,” favoring Republicans by 12 points.

On the other side, Democrats appear to be strong in Massachusetts, where Barney Frank leads and the Republican challenger for the open MA-10 seat in Cape Cod seems unable to gain traction.
