Repubs turning around the numbers........new poll numbrs.....
The latest USA TODAY/Gallup national poll, taken over the weekend, shows that:

Thirty-eight percent of the 675 likely voters questioned said the U.S. House of Representatives member from their district does not deserve re-election. That number has never been higher. Two weeks ago it stood at 33%.

Asked what will make the biggest difference in their vote for Congress, 43% of likely voters said "national issues" also the highest that figure has reached.

On the generic question of whether they favor the Democrat or Republican candidate in their district, 54% of likely voters chose the Democrat and 41% the Republican.

That 13 percentage-point gap is well below the 23-point advantage Democrats held in the previous poll, but matches the advantage that Republicans held with two weeks to go before the landmark 1994 election when they swept control of Congress.

4. I've heard that charge levied against every pollster
Rasmussen, Survey USA, Zogby, Quinnipiac, you name it.

5. the 23 point advantage was never there on first place
10 to 15 points is more likely.
