Here's what Newsweek reported:
Look at the numbers... On the surface then don't look right. When you take their own polling numbers, here's what you really get:
Newsweek is full of crap, but if clinging to it make you feel better, then go for it.
Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
It's really interesting just to see how much the American population fluctuates with it's political views. The Dems will lose some seats, but not as many as some people think. They will still have the majority, hopefully the economy will start to rebound by the time of the next presidential elections.
I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.
why listen to charlie cook, larry sabato or the "widely monitored" crystal ball when you have the linkless analyses of the professional membership of this fine forum
underlying the wave cook, sabato and campbell all foresee are the 47 house dems currently representing districts won BOTH by george w what's-his-name and ex-maverick mccain in 04 and 08

meanwhile, today, enthusiasm data:
RealClearPolitics - Politics - Aug 31, 2010 - AP-GfK Poll: Most attuned voters tilt toward GOPBy a 3-to-1 margin, more of these highly opinionated people strongly disapproved of the president's effort on the economy than strongly approved. More strongly disapproved of Obama's actions by a 2-to-1 ratio on unemployment, 2-1 on health care, 6-1 on the deficit and 2-1 on terrorism. His performance on Afghanistan, taxes, immigration and gas prices also drew strong disapproval.
Of the most frequently mentioned issues, the only one where most did not strongly disapprove of Obama's work was education, on which they were closely divided. They were also split over his handling of energy, the environment and the oil spill.
In many instances, though, GOP sentiment was more decisive. For example, among Republicans calling the economy extremely important, 79 percent strongly disapproved of Obama's efforts on the issue and 1 percent strongly approved. The margin was much narrower among Democrats: 27 percent strongly approved while 16 percent strongly disapproved.
Looking at independents who considered an issue extremely or very important, more strongly disapproved than strongly approved of Obama's handling of 12 of the 15 issues. This included mostly negative views of Obama from independents on 10 of the 11 issues most frequently cited by people as important, including the economy, unemployment and health care.
