I had a look at what people are saying of the house. First this:

Predictions 10/6: House of (un)Representatives

I have evaluated incumbency and redistricting advantages quantitatively. I now believe that these two phenomena contribute approximately equally to an overall advantage of R+2.5+-1.0%. In other words, Democrats need to win the popular vote by 2.5+-1.0% in order to achieve near-parity in House seats. I was wrong about thinking there was little tilt in the playing field. It's substantial.

Looking at Huffington Post's average of polls for generic ballot it is essentially even, which gives the victory to the Republicans. I don't know to how large degree results follow the generic ballot polls.

A vote for PES is a vote for EPP! A vote for EPP is a vote for PES! Support the coalition, vote EPP-PES in 2009!

Nate Silver has estimated that due to gerrymandering it may take a 3-4% advantage in the generic polls to actually generate a majority on Congress, and the generic Democratic vote has tended to lag Obama's vote in the polls.
