    The upcoming elections are shaping up to be significant victories for Republicans.

    As of now, in the race for governor in both New Jersey and Virginia, the Republican candidates are dominating. Countrywide/AIG Chris Dodd is behind in recent polling. Arlon Specter is in a virtual dead heat tie with his Republican counterpart. Even California liberal Democrat stalward Barbara Boxer is facing tough Republican opposition. Over 60% polled dissaprove of the Democrat controlled Congress.

    On the generic polling ballot, Republicans now hold a 5-point margin over Democrats - the highest mark in years.

    Do you believe ALL of the lies you tell? Creigh Deeds (D) is leading Bob McDonell (R) in VA.

    After that town hall meeting where Specter made a complete ass out of himself...I can see him switching back to Republican in a feeble attempt to retain his seat.

    Republicans don't have a prayer. Their strategy of voting NO on everything and hoping for an economic collapse is backfiring. The economy is showing signs of reversing. By 2010 elections, the economy will be recovering, healthcare will be passed and troops will be pulling out of Iraq.

    What poll are you referencing?

    The RCP average as of yesterday has McDonnell leading Deeds by more than a 10-point margin...

    I'm sure glad Bush negotiated that troop withdrawal prior to his term in office expiring.

    Which you deserve, and I hereby humbly submit. I honestly had no idea McDonnell any chance here in VA. My apologies.
