An eleven year flood

Posted by: Hammer / 8:47 AM

Democrats could blow it all in the next year. Dems have a slightly better record in elections over the last 12 years than the Vikings have playing away from the Metrodome. But the Wall Street Journal is reporting that:

Broadly, the telephone survey of 1,003 adults, which was conducted from Nov. 4 to Nov. 7, finds that Americans want Democrats to take control of Congress in next year's election, by a margin of 48% to 37%. The 11-point gap is the widest enjoyed by either party on that question since the poll began asking it in 1994.

The trouble, of course, starts at the top:

Mr. Bush's year-long struggles are a major reason for the altered political landscape, the poll shows. His overall approval rating has fallen to 38% -- higher than the low points of predecessors Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush, but the lowest of his five-year presidency. Six in 10 Americans disapprove of Mr. Bush's handling of the economy, foreign policy and Iraq.

..Just 33% now give Mr. Bush high marks for being "honest and straightforward," down from 50% in January. Fully 57% say he "deliberately misled" the nation about the case for war in Iraq.
