Bush approval "bump": "too little, too late"
http://www.rawstory.com/news/2006/Democrats_lead_as_pol...

As the race for Congress enters the homestretch, the Republicans find themselves limping to the finish line, according to the new NEWSWEEK Poll. President Bushs approval rating continues a slow but steady climbfrom an all-time NEWSWEEK-poll low of 33 percent three weeks ago to 37 percent today. But it may be too little, too late: if the midterm elections were held today, 53 percent of those likely to go to the polls would vote for the Democratic candidate in their Congressional district versus just 39 percent who would vote for the Republican.

2. Sure ARE
Maybe they figure the democrats will pass a law about TRUTH IN NEWS REPORTING...By the way did any one notice the math in bush's crap about raising taxes. He says over and over if the dems take over congess they will block making his tax cuts permanent, which are due to expire in 2010.

Now the representatives are elected every two years; those elected in 2006- take office in 2007 - and their terms will expire in December 2009 isn't that a month before bush's tax cuts are due to expire. If bush and company can't even add 2 and 2 how can they handle more complicated finances.

3. Margin of error?
I don't see the margin of error in this story, it could easily be 4%+.
