Really... with the likes of Pelosi, Reid and Obama's antics and comments during Harry Reid's Shutdown, this isn't surprising.Wow! A liberal publication taking a Democratic poll and finding bad news for...Democrats?
I don't imagine you'll be hearing THAT on MSNBC any time soon.
Breaking with the trend rather surprisingly Wednesday was the perilously liberal Mother Jones with a piece titled "New Poll Shows Democratic Incumbents in Big Trouble."
The poll was actually from James Carville and Stan Greenberg's Democracy Corps...
In Democratic districts, net incumbent approval has plummeted by 11 points, from +8 approval to +3 disapproval. In Republican districts, incumbent approval has gone down only 4 points. You see the same results when they ask a question about warmth of feeling toward incumbents: It's down 7 points in Republican districts and 9 points in Democratic districts.
This isn't good news for Democrats. It's true that attitudes toward the Republican Party have taken a bigger hit than attitudes toward the Democratic Party, but attitudes toward actual incumbents are exactly the opposite. And in elections, that's what matters.[/INDENT]
