    While Dems have a one point lead in that, it's because those unlikely to vote are weighing it. Republicans are dominating "Ethusiastic Voters" which are more likely to show up at the polls.
    Um. the one point lead for dems is specifically looking at "likely voters"

    Only a fool like WE We and an AP faus paus polls would believe that people are happy about the economy. They are worried shitless cause they do not know if they will be laid off. FYI, the unemployment rate went up to9.9%
    My memory is fuzzy which of those elections had a democrat running against a republican for a congressional seat?

    edit; not a sarcastic question i really can't remember, however I do know the recent congressional special election had a Democrat beat a Republican

    Looks like people are happy about the economy.

    The lead isn't large and we're still several months away...but it's interesting while every Republican pundit is screaming and cheerleading about a Republican Landslide this year....

    To get a real feel you have to look at individual polls. Because when it comes down to it, people like to complain but then elect the same old tired losers. NJ is great for that. They bitch and complain about high property taxes and all that but the same assemblymen and senators keep getting re-elected.

    When a Democrat defeats a Repub in a conservative district, let me know. It is going to an ass whipping of monumental porportions come Nov. Democrats and RINO's are going down.

    OK That's 85%. That leaves 15% who will put real thought into it and vote for people who will not empower Pelosi.

    For someone who does not "WORK" regularly or for compensation, you sure seem to be concerned for those of us who do work.

    Wasamatta, you worried about your welfare check?
