    Sometimes numbers are not what they seem. David Sarasohn had an article in today's Oregonian that pointed out some pretty grim numbers for the Republican Party. While the national poll numbers do not look great for President Obama, they do look good. Research 2000 has his numbers at 55-37, ABC at 57-40, Fox at 55-41, and Gallup at 56-40.

    Close enough to say that his job approval is about 55%. But when you poll the South, that rating is 27-68. In the rest of the nation, 67-24. That breaks down like this, 59-32 in the West, 62-30 in the Midwest, and 82-7 in the Northeast.

    In the rating game between the to partys, the Republicans win in the South, 48-37, lose in the West, 12-72, in the Midwest 10-78, and in the Norheast 6-87.

    You might think the Repubs would be a little worried about 2010.

    Why? Number counting has never been their strong suit.

    And it is only going to get worse as the republican party continues to eat its own. They would rather have a Democrat win than have a moderate republican win.
    Thanks Sarah Palin! wink

    If the South is the bastion of the Republican Party without significant support elsewhere in the country, the GOP will be massacred in 2010.

    if the economy in on an upswing in the summer of 2010, and we have a reasonable health care bill all signed into law, even the Sourthern numbers may be positive for President Obama.
