Not Looking Good

Hearing that the generic Congressional ballot has a 10-point GOP lead makes me wonder what the hell is going on with the people who are answering the poll that way.

Republicans are now twice as likely as Democrats to be “very” enthusiastic about voting, and now hold — by one point — the largest such advantage of the year.

But then the Democrats have done a really bad job of selling the successes they’ve had — healthcare, Wall Street and banking reform, rescuing the auto industry, and keeping the economy from falling off the cliff — and the GOP knows that even if they have nothing to offer, they can still rely on fear and loathing. That always works.
