Poll: GOP Top Dems On Generic Ballot

From Gallup:

Republicans Edge Ahead of Democrats in 2010 Vote

Registered voters prefer Republicans for the House, 48% to 44%

PRINCETON, NJ — Republicans have moved ahead of Democrats by 48% to 44% among registered voters in the latest update on Gallup’s generic congressional ballot for the 2010 House elections, after trailing by six points in July and two points last month

As was the case in last Tuesday’s gubernatorial elections, independents are helping the Republicans’ cause. In the latest poll, independent registered voters favor the Republican candidate by 52% to 30%. Both parties maintain similar loyalty from their bases, with 91% of Democratic registered voters preferring the Democratic candidate and 93% of Republican voters preferring the Republican.

Over the course of the year, independents’ preference for the Republican candidate in their districts has grown, from a 1-point advantage in July to the current 22-point gap.

The overall results would predict a likely strong Republican showing if the House elections were held today…

Bottom Line

Roughly a year before the 2010 midterm elections, Republicans seem well-positioned to win back some of their congressional losses in 2006 and 2008…

Well, according to Messrs Obama and Clinton this must be because so many voters are afraid the Democrats aren’t going to pass ‘healthcare reform.’

There’s just no other explanation.

Certainly the small tent GOP can’t be attracting so many independents. The New York Times and the rest of our media masters told us just the opposite.

By the way, where is Mr. Obama’s vaunted ‘army’? His netroots groundswell?

Where were they back on election day?

    I’d love to make the (D)onkeys see the error of their ways.
    They really do need to get a grip on reality and lay off Barney Fwanks homegrown weed!

    • Confucius says:

      I’ve given up on the “(D)onkeys.” They’re akin to the people who ride the bus wearing seatbelts, helmets and an overwhelming body odor–i.e. they’re hapless and hopeless.

      I’d rather direct my finger-wagging at the Independents. They learn. They’re just slow.

    Gallup is a bastion of liberalism. It’s a miracle this poll ever saw the light of day.

    If they say there is a 4% gap, the real gap is AT LEAST 10%.

    If you don’t watch anything else today, you should watch this.


    – “this administration is interested in punishing Texas”
    – in 2 months they will double the population of Presidio Texas with illegal immigrants
    – “I say it’s time for someone to stand up”
    – “an administration hell-bent on taking America toward a Socialist country”
    – “must stop this administration in Washington”
    – “I believe in the 10th amendment”
    – “Washington we don’t want you mandating how to run our state”
    – “ca and trade…..will devastate this country and bankrupt our state”
    – “cap and trade will destroy the entire southern region of the United States”
    – “it’s the shut down Midland Texas bill”

    I haven’t been Rick Perry’s biggest fan, but he might just be talking himself into becoming the next President of the United States.

    But I also have a hunch that he may have some health problems real soon.
