The anti-incumbent feeling in the U.S. will not lead to Democrats loosing the House, according to Rep. Chris Van Hollen. The Democratic senator was quoted as saying anyone who thinks that Republicans could take control of the House is in "la-la land."

He didn't back down from his comments Sunday. "I have always said, David -- way back a year ago, after the election of Barack Obama, I said this would be a tough political cycle," Van Hollen told NBC's David Gregory Sunday.

"The idea that [Republicans] will be measuring the drapes is clearly -- they are high on their own hype," he said.
