Come on, American people! Make up your minds already! Do you want the really awful political party full of religious zealots and corporate whores in charge of Congress, or do you want the really really awful political party completely full of religious zealots and corporate whores in charge of Congress?
Can we just pick one and get down to going extinct as a species already?
43% of voters think that House Republicans are doing a worse job now than the Democrats did, compared to only 36% who think the GOP has brought an improvement. 19% think things are about the same. 62% of voters thinking that the Republicans have either made things worse or brought no improvement to an already unpopular Congress does not bode particularly well for the party.
46% of voters say that if there was an election for Congress today they would vote Democratic, compared to only 41% who would vote Republican. That five point advantage for Democrats is only a hair below the margin Republicans won by in the national popular vote last year. A victory of that magnitude for the Democrats next year would at the very least result in the party taking back a large number of the seats it lost last year, and it could be enough to take back the outright majority…
Sounds pretty good for the Democrats, assuming they don't do something completely stupid and craven between now and November 2012.
