While its a little early to give firm estimates on the change in the composition of the House of Representatives as a result of the 2010 election, it would be interesting to see if members of this forum are in any way realistic.

So go ahead and vote and discuss.

I figure maybe 10 to 17.  Could be a lot higher: Democrats have won a bunch of seats in 2006 and 2008 that they really just have no business holding based on the PVI.

Around 20, maybe a bit less. Of course, guesstimating right now is quite silly.

i'm thinking around the 18-22 range as well, although a number like 25 wouldn't surprise me much

My guess is that Democrats lose everything that they gained in 2008.  That would mean around 20-25 seats.

As of right now 20-25 seats and this is probably the best case scenario for them. If they still fail to overcome Republican obstructionism and don't implement their agenda by 2010, expect closer to 40-50 seats to fall.

30-35 if they pass some sort of healthcare, or a complete bloodbath if they fail to pass reform.

100 seats?  Even in the horrible Democratic years between 1994 and 2006, Democrats never fell below 203 seats.

Lose about 20 seats, gain about 5, for a net of around 15.

While obviously they don't have most of the blame now, the last time that the Democratic party was blamed for a depression during a midterm election was 1894. Democrats had a truly epic loss, going  from 61% to 26% in that election.

That depression was far worse, and furthermore, the GOP was an acceptable alternative, even in parts of the South at that point(and it was this GOP resurgence among white voters in the south which led to Jim Crow).  The GOP does not even exist in places like Massachusetts and Rhode Island, or in urban seats. The GOP frankly is unlikely to have anywhere near enough serious candidates to win 276 seats. Even if unemployment was at 15%.
