    Mother Jones Shocker: 'New Poll Shows Democratic Incumbents in Big Trouble'

    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]
    Really... with the likes of Pelosi, Reid and Obama's antics and comments during Harry Reid's Shutdown, this isn't surprising.

    Incumbent approval EVERYWHERE is down. And then when people get into the voting booths ... they vote for the same old, same old.

    Congress Dives, Anti-Incumbency Soars in Deep Post-Shutdown Criticism - ABC News

    Cruz's antics during the shutdown are every bit as damaging to the GOP. Don't kid yourself, Zimmer. The ABC article says GOP incumbent approval is down; it doesn't mention that GOP incumbent approval was much lower to begin with. Selective reading of polling data isn't good for you.

    Democrats' net disapproval in that poll was 61 percent; Republicans was 77.

    It is funny how Obama is in BIG trouble with mid 40s rating, but the GOP is doing just fine according to the GOP with sub 10% ratings.. Even Al Q is more popular in some areas than the GOP!

    Yes... Demokrats are doing just fine... that's why 10 Socialist Senators are trying to get ObamaKare delayed. Because ObamaKare is just a bundle of roses that will be a lock for them winning their elections.
    Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrright!

    The 2014 races are local but will be tied to Obama and the D's in general and their dishonesty about ObamaKare, about their Benghazi cover-up, about their failure on foriegn policy matters, on their wasteful spending and the massive debt they've created in the past 5-years.

    They have quite the record to promote... errrrr... defend.

    Tell us when the next member of the GOP will move into the White House.

    You don't control the U. S. government if you don't control the White House.




    The clock is ticking on the out of touch, running out of time, GOP.

    2014 will be all about Obamacare. If it is a disaster and millions of people lose coverage, face massive rate spikes, or other major problems no one will remember the shutdown. In fact no one is even talking about it now. But if the problems smooth out and people seem content with Obamacare, then dems prospects for next fall are quite good. The trouble for dems is that there is no way the latter is going to happen. For them 2014 will be all about Obamacare damage control. And if that's the case, the argument will become how many more seats will the dems lose.

    Do you think putting K's in the place of C's somehow adds to... well, any part of any conversation ever?

    It's cute when an eight year old girl puts it on the sign for her lemonade stand, but you're allegedly an adult.

    At the national level, including Obama, I have four representatives. If I could, I'd eject three of them today. The jury is out on the fourth one, but a legitimate replacement would close that door, too.

    My Congressman did not even return a 'Thanks for the email" replay when I wrote to him until three weeks later. What a loser! He's from the same party that brought us Obamacare so a lack of comprehension on the auto response feature is to be understood.

    I'm sick of the whole bunch. All of them. If Al Qaeda happened to hit the Capital with an airplane during the State of the Union, we'd be better off.

    If you dug a little deeper every time the GOP was ready to get get buried, you'd be breaking the surface in China right about now.

    Same with the Democrats.

    Huge mistakes, like the war in Iraq or the entire Obama Presidency tend to get people's attention.

    Where does the K fit in to Lemonade?
