Just released McLaughlin & Associates polling data is grim news for House Democrats representing southern states.

While McLaughlin’s national generic ballot survey shows Republicans with a seven point 42/35 edge, which is a considerable number for the GOP which usually trails in this measure by anywhere from 2 to 12 points, its eleven point lead in the south is stunning.

Where will this southern state “generic ballot” sword strike?
When combined his Barack Obama’s low approval ratings in each of these states it is hard many of the 12 Blue Dogs from the Old South surviving.
With Obama registering some of his lowest approval ratings in the South Democrats below the Mason Dixon line are in for a long Election Night.
