    This looks good for the Republicans if they are running someone named Joe Generic in November

    Problem is they have to put actual names on the ballot. When voters are given actual names with actual political platforms, the GOP starts to falter.

    With so many Tea Bagger candidates spouting extremist rhetoric there is a huge probability of implosion.

    "Did you really say THAT?"

    Can someone remind me of what those generic Republican positions are again? NO

    Previewing Ohio

    We'll start rolling out our Ohio poll results tomorrow but there's one finding on the poll that pretty much sums it up: by a 50-42 margin voters there say they'd rather have George W. Bush in the White House right now than Barack Obama.


    Isn't that a slap in the face of Obama? Ohio voters would rather have Bush in for a unprecedented third term instead of Obama. Gotta love it!

    Traditionally, the incumbent party loses seats in an off year election....and that is to be expected. However, it is interesting to see in certain races, how the TP/Republican candidates are imploding when earlier they looked to be shoo-ins. I speak particularly of Nevada's Senate race.

    Not a big fan of polling. I don't really think it tells us that much since people are fluid. Anything can happen between now and then that changes their minds.

    Besides, does anyone honestly think that things will be that much different if there is an R next to their name? The problems our society has wont be solved by politics.

    I think this poll shows two things.

    1) Voters are tired of what is going on right now in Congress.

    2) Obama is sinking in the polls.
