WASHINGTON — Democrats need to gain 25 seats this year to regain control of the House of Representatives from the Republicans. The prospects are dim. Even a strong showing by President Barack Obama would be unlikely to swing the House to the Democrats and return the majority they lost two years ago. Redistricting, in effect in most places for the first time since the 2010 census, is helping Republicans. So are problems faced by Democratic moderates in conservative and Southern states.
