    "PRINCETON, NJ -- Republicans have moved ahead of Democrats by 48% to 44% among registered voters in the latest update on Gallup's generic congressional ballot for the 2010 House elections, after trailing by six points in July and two points last month."

    "Bottom Line

    "Roughly a year before the 2010 midterm elections, Republicans seem well-positioned to win back some of their congressional losses in 2006 and 2008. Independents are increasingly coming to prefer the Republican candidate for Congress, and now favor the GOP by 22 points. Political conditions could still shift between now and Election Day to create a more favorable environment for Democratic candidates, but a Republican lead on the generic ballot among registered voters has been a sign of a strong Republican showing at the polls in the coming election."

    Use gallup as many times as you want now. But such a poll will not make a difference come a month now, never mind 6 months down the road or a year.

    It's a pretty good indication that you guys are the fringe element.

    :rofl:

    It's not my guys first off. Not even a year after Americans overwhelmingly voted in Democrats and gave Barack Obama the presidency, you're calling them the fringe? Are you batshit insane?

    Tell me, in November of 2007, where was Barack Obama in all those nifty polls of yours for the Presidency? :eusa_whistle:

    Obama hadn't a chance in hell until McCain voted for the stimulus. That's when the independents and a lot of Republicans dumped him.

    And the lefties are fringe. And Obama is the fringest of them all. He campaigned on a platform that he was moderate. He lied. The people who voted for him, except for the fringe lunatics who wish he was even more of a Marxist than he is already, will not vote for him again.

    Actually, even Fox News reported that McCain's numbers began to slip after the Palin/Couric interview. :lol:

    How's that kool-aid? Taste good?

    Palin really hurt McCain. She pandered to the Cons that were going to vote for McCain anyways, but motivated the Liberals and drove off the independents.

    Of course she did, she killed any hopes of the Independents voting for McCain and like you said, drew people who were going to vote for McCain anyway. I do hope she gets the nomination in 2012. :D

    Sorry that I must venture into this with an opposite conjecture, but my view of past elections makes me think that it will be all but impossible to reverse this slide into socialism in the 2010's.

    When President Reagan had 10% unemployment, he lost how many seats in the house?

    26

    When President Johnson saw huge protests against the war, and riots outside the convention, he maintained majorities in both house.

    We need, what, about 40 reversals in the House to gain control

    I don't think so.

    I hope I'm wrong.
