WHICH WOULD BRING OUT THE LONG KNIVES:
Battle for Congress Suddenly Looks Competitive: Democrats’ double-digit lead on the “generic ballot” slips to 3 points (Lydia Saad, 9/12/08, Gallup)
A potential shift in fortunes for the Republicans in Congress is seen in the latest USA Today/Gallup survey, with the Democrats now leading the Republicans by just 3 percentage points, 48% to 45%, in voters' "generic ballot" preferences for Congress. This is down from consistent double-digit Democratic leads seen on this measure over the past year.
Losing the presidential would just put the Unicorn Rider on par with Dukakis, Gore and Kerry. Losing control of Congress makes him Jimmy Carter. Posted by Orrin Judd at September 12, 2008 6:40 AM
