GOP tidal wave coming in November?

A new Gallup poll gives Republicans a 10 point lead in a generic ballot. While such polls don’t necessarily reflect how people will actually vote, it’s the biggest GOP edge in 68 years of generic ballot polls.

Quick, tell me, what does the Democratic Party stand for? That’s a toughie to answer, isn’t it? And therein lies the major problem for Democrats. “There is no there there.”

    Republicans did not have an exit strategy in Iraq.
    Democrats do not have a staying strategy in D.C.

    November will be interesting. All the talking heads kept saying that incumbents were going to be losing their seats left and right and yet in the primaries only about half a dozen of the close to 400 lost. Now that is the primaries but it pretty much flies in the face of what we keep hearing.

      I agree. One thing for sure, voters are in a foul mood indeed.

    Easy: Democrats stand for bank bailouts now, bank bailouts tomorrow, bank bailouts forever.

        Yes, one does it reluctantly, the other enthusiastically, and they switch depending on who’s in power.

          You really think the Democrats do that reluctantly?

    Didn’t your g’ma ever tell you about counting chickens before they’re hatched? This whole massive mid-term makeover meme is a part of the media narrative, establishing the expectation of a major turnover so the rubes find it easier to swallow when questions arise. We both read the same polls no doubt as often so tell me what I’m missing, ’cause I don’t see any hard evidence of even a minor turnover, al-the-moreso in the face of all these uber-Reichwing feakazoids coming out of nowhere to upset incumbent seats only days ago thought a “safe pickup”.

    Personally, I kinda’ admire the Reichwing’s brazenness in their confidence in their ability to steal another election. Barring another theft, they got nuthin’, and “Americans” aren’t as big of rubes as the corporate media and Reichwingers believe.

    By every definitional of the word, the are Fascist.
