I'd not be terribly upset at the Dems gaining the House. That is where the actual conservatives in government reside but losing the Senate is worse (Judges, etc). With the House gone, there'd be gridlock & we would all be safe for awhile (seeing how a Repulican controlled Congress has proven nearly worthless)

Too cute for words
Were you coherent?
As coherent as I ever am...

That's probably the funniest thing I've heard all year.

From the above website's online poll question:




Which party do you want to control Congress?


Selection Votes
Democrats 85% 9,660
Republicans 10% 1,140
Divided Congress 5% 542

11,342 votes total

Sounds bipartisan to me, making it about as useful as a screen door on a submarine and as reliable as anything that drips out of Paula Zahn's piehole.

Next.

Hell yeah, that's a good indicator on it's own. If you want something else though:

Looking for a Lifeboat
A new NEWSWEEK poll shows that the GOP has lost more ground. Will rallying the base stem a Democratic tide

Updated: 8:08 a.m. PT Nov 4, 2006
Nov. 4, 2006 - As President George W. Bush jets across Red State America this weekend, Republican candidates are falling further behind Democratic rivals, according to the new NEWSWEEK poll. While the GOP has lagged behind Democrats throughout the campaign season, the trend in the past month—when NEWSWEEK conducted four polls in five weeks—had suggested the Republicans were building momentum in the homestretch.


No more. The new poll finds support for Republicans (and for President Bush) receding. For example, 53 percent of Americans want the Democrats to win enough seats to take control of one or both houses of Congress in the midterm elections on Tuesday. Those results are close to early October levels, while less than a third of Americans (32 percent) want Republicans to retain control. If the elections were held today, 54 percent of likely voters say they would support the Democratic candidate in their district versus 38 percent who would vote for the Republican-a 16-point edge for the Democrats.

Keep in mind that the polls said Kerry was kicking ass and taking names... and we saw how that turned out.
