November Can't Happen Soon Enough

(Keywords: , , are getting screwed in )

The latest AP-Ipsos poll gives Democrats a 20 point lead over Republicans on the question of who voters want to control congress.

When asked, "And if the election for Congress were held today, would you want to see the Republicans or Democrats win control of Congress?", 32% answered 'Republicans', while 52% answered 'Democrats'.

It's going to suck to be a Republican in November, they're just not getting any love. I've heard a lot of people saying that conservatives will run on immigration in November, but that may not be the wisest idea. A CNN poll of people's priorities shows that the only thing people are less concerned about is, disturbingly, domestic surveillance. The priorities above it are terrorism, Iraq, gas prices, the economy, and government corruption - all issues where polling shows the GOP sucks in terms of public opinion. If they want to run on that, I say go ahead - no one's especially freaked out about it.

Until Republicans get serious about terrorism (i.e., stop doing stupid things like trying to sell ports to Dubai) and start rethinking Iraq, they're screwed.
