House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of Calif., right, speaks during a town hall-style meeting as U.S. Rep. Michael Capuano, D-Mass. left, looks on, Thursday, Feb. 1, 2018, at the Cambridge Public Library, in Cambridge, Mass. On the heels of President Donald Trump's State of the Union address, Pelosi spoke about the recently approved federal tax overhaul. Her appearance at the event is part of what organizers say is a nationwide tour featuring members of Congress and others to call attention to the Republican tax plan.

What looks like a good chance to pick up a majority of seats in the House could be turning into a wash, thanks to some big blunders by Democrats. A roundup of editorials Wednesday takes a look at the issue.

Opinions from the right:

1, Crumbs? 'I'll take it.' And Democrats should too

From Roll Call: What have Democrats done for voters? So far, make fun of their paychecks.

2. Democrats need better cents

From the New York Daily News: The Democrats should learn that money in your pocket, however small the amount, is still money in your pocket.

3. Democrats (not intentionally) for Trump and the GOP

From columnist Bernard Goldberg: The GOP may not be saved in the midterms by the tax plan, but Democrats are doing everything they can to help them out.
