    It seems to have returned to pre-melt down on three key GoP issues, economy, taxes and defense.

    Dems have hurt themselves badly on these issues, especailly the economy, that spending spree will be with us until the day I die and long beyound.

    A number of those remained static or close to it, one area that hurts the GoP is they still lose badly in the ethics matchup.

    The Democrats have no Ethics. They prove it daily. However the press covers much of it up for them.

    That healthcare figure will go up for the GOP also,once the folks who work in the industry see their jobs suffer. It's starting already in preperation for the Obama fallout. They have already started cutting back on overtime,hiring of new temps and employees. Once the shit really hits the fan,like it did in the car and bank industry...current employees across the board (in healthcare) are going to freak out and wonder what the hell they actually voted for,with the current admin. I see lots of layoffs in their future.
