ABC/WaPost Generic Congressional Poll - 53R-40D
Oh lordy. This was one of the polls I was waiting for to balance things out.

1. People have very short memories.
Truly, it's like hiring back the drunk to drive your kids around after a near fatal accident because the new nanny hasn't gotten the kids to act like perfect children yet.

So, it's better to have them die in a horrible accident than to give the nanny more than two years to teach them to behave better.

OK...

The Dems need to get together and get their message out. They need to REMIND people WHY we are in this mess. They obviously aren't doing a good job of that so far.

Yes. It isn't even "what have you done for me lately"
It's "what do I understand you to have done for me lately - when I only pay attention for short periods of time every couple years"

26. You may be forgetting the effect of Teabaggers
which were completely missing last go around for GOP.
The energy factor is very high amongst teabaggers and could
explain the generic ballot.

28. Were they?
I think that the only real change is the shift from the "christian" coalition (supposedly social conservatives) to pseudo-libertarian fiscal conservatives. Still a minority group driving the larger party.

Sure there's some overlap, but the end result is similar... they can't keep both sides of their party happy at the same time. It may work for this election but it's cr@p for building a governing majority.
