    Media Matters, CNN, and NBC polls always swing Democrat, real polls show an ass whipping for dems in November, thanks for playing.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Remember when Obama had no chance of beating Hillary in the primaries?

    Right now, Nate Silver (FiveThirtyEight: Politics Done Right) has 7 seats with a greater than 50% chance of switching parties, all of them now held by Democrats.

    However, since then, polling for Kirk in Illinois has improved. Also, much depends on who runs; if Tommy Thomson in Wisconsin, Dino Rossi in Washington, and Tom Campbell in California run, then those seats are also in play.

    Nate also had this Twitter post yesterday: "It's time to acknowledge that the Democrats COULD lose 60 or 70 House seats. Not super likely, but eminently possible."

    Guess my info is outdated. It's amazing how short American memory has become. The GOP promises reduced spending and smaller government every election and has never once delivered on that. Here we go again!

    Obama has hit a historic low as well. More people now disapprove (47.3) than approve (46.1)

    Huh - people don't like having major legislation rammed down their throats. Who would have thunk it? The Dems still have a way to go before they're in the Historic Repub range, but they're well below their previous low and are now tied with a party that had hit rock bottom just a few months ago.

    With all the broken promises and politics-as-usual, independents aren't seeing the type of change they had envisioned:

    "Polls" are not elections, they are snapshots of opinion on a given day. Cries of "throw the bums out" are common in most election cycles, what's far less common is it actually happening. Generic "I dislike this or that party" polls don't equal "I dislike my Senator or Representative" in most cases. History teaches us that most incumbents will likely return to office.

    If I were a major third party, I'd do EVERYTHING I could to get some air time on tv, youtube, and news outlets to provide alternatives to the Dems and GOP. This is probably the best time since the Civil War or the Bull Moose Party for a new political party to emerge and make a force of itself. The only way this can happen, though, is if they become vocal enough to get heard in today's politically charged climate before things calm down enough.
    So what's the middle ground between the two parties that will get people all excited? What policies would make a third party popular?

    One that deals with issues that directly affect us all, like the economy, jobs, dealing with terrorism, immigration, etc. with all the moral/social issues taking the back burner. We have never been able to successfully legislate morality, and we never will.
    There are a lot of people out there who DON'T CARE who is boinking who as long as it is behind closed doors. Let the moral issues wait until Jesus returns and deals with them in his own way.....aka Judge Not Lest Ye Be Judged....

    My point, which you just blew right on past, is that high oil prices are not going to help the economy........ fuel has gone up an average of 5 cents a gallon per day last week.

    Now think about the cost of shipping.
