    Republicans Jump Out To Historic Lead In Gallup Generic Ballot

    Gallup's generic polling shows the number of voters saying that they would vote for Republicans rising three points from last week, while the number saying they will vote for Democrats dropped four points. The 49%-43% lead for the Republicans is the largest that the pollster has ever recorded for the party. Moreover, Democratic enthusiasm for voting this fall fell a point, while enthusiasm among Republicans stayed about fifteen points higher. This indicates an even wider lead for Republicans once Gallup imposes a likely voter screen this fall.

    There's any number of reasons for this: the public's perception of Obama's response to the oil spill, the shaky stock market performance last week, continued concern about the economy and spending. The bottom line is that, despite what is perceived as an underperformance for the Republicans in PA-12 a couple of weeks ago, there are still plenty of Democrats in trouble for this November.

    Damn son, Gallup even shows the GOP marching towards a giant rebuke of all things Obama. This is good news indeed for America.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Precisely why do you think so? It isn't much of a logical leap to say that after reading the OP when you haven't provided any evidence to back up your position.

    It would be even better news if third parties could get elected into Congress.

    Re: Republicans Jump Out To Historic Lead In Gallup Generic Ballot

    And when the voters put the Republicans back in power in the Congress, what will change? The voters didn't like the Republican Congress a few years ago, so the Democrats won big. The voters still don't like what is happening in Washington, so the Republicans might win power back again. But, what will really change?

    Will the new government be able to balance the budget, put a satisfactory end to the wars in the ME, reduce our appetite for drugs, put a stop to illegal immigration, get us closer to energy independence, or bring down the cost of health care?

    When a party, any party has a realistic plan to do any or all of the above, then it's time to become partisan. Until then, it's just a changing of the guard, bringing on political rhetoric, which will be simply leaping and hooting, full of sound and fury but signifying nothing.

    Which is what I expect to happen in the next couple of elections.

    The end is near for Obama and the Democrats. On the first Wednesday in November there will be many excuses made by The One, and wailing by Lib-Tards everywhere. Oh, the joy!

    Excerpted from “Anti-Democratic Party or Anti-Incumbent?” Posted by Jeff Jones, Gallup Editor, 2010 CENTRAL BY FRANK NEWPORT, JEFF JONES, AND LYDIA SAAD, at 1:40 PM
    Our current generic ballot numbers and other indicators suggest that 2010 could be a rough year for the Democrats. But I’m not sure what we are seeing is as much anti-Democratic Party as it is anti-incumbent. From our data, we know that favorable ratings of the Democratic Party, approval ratings of the Democratic Party in Congress, and identification with the Democratic Party are all down from recent times, but they are also no worse than what we are presently finding for the Republican Party.
    Seems like the political well has been poisoned for all the parties.

    I'm afraid to say this, but this just means that there are too many RINOs as well. For at least the past couple of years, government spending and powers has increased and increased into the wrong sectors. Last I recalled, the Constitution said to "promote the general welfare" and not "provide" for us. Less government spending and meddling is a plus in my books.
