THE O-POCALYPSE COMETH:

Republican Rise: Voters are evenly split over which party should run Congress—a sharp comedown for the Democrats (PETER WALLSTEN 1/19/10, WSJ)

As Barack Obama enters his second year in office amid an enduring economic downturn, voters are less optimistic about his ability to succeed and no longer favor keeping the Democrats in control of Congress, according to the new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll. [...]

Nationally, voters now are evenly split over which party they hope will run Capitol Hill after the November elections—the first time Democrats haven't had the edge on that question since December 2003.

Moreover, Republicans are far more excited than Democrats to turn out and vote in November: 55% of Republican voters said they were "very interested" in the election, compared with 38% of Democrats.
