Projection: Boehner Re-Elected Speaker of the House

Well, 27 Republicans (so far) voted against him, but both @nathanwurtzel and @esotericCD (JeffB.) say that there aren't enough possible anti-Boehner votes left among those yet to vote.

So, he hangs on -- but narrowly.

(Note that only something like 401 (IIRC) Representatives are in the House so this reduces the number of votes Boehner needs to 201, and increases the number of anti-Boehner votes needed to stop him.)
