Though I don't think they deserve good news. They're always trying to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, and what with the fearfearfear agenda of the Republicans and the problems with electronic voting machines and the way the oil industry manipulates the price of gasoline to try to keep their faithful servants in power; well, who knows, maybe they will be successful in losing again.
But they have only themselves to blame if that happens:
Less than two months until Election Day, the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds that more than half of registered voters disapprove of President Bush's job performance, even more disagree with his handling of Iraq and a strong plurality prefer a Congress controlled by the Democrats — all suggesting that Democrats are still poised to pick up seats in the upcoming midterms.
Also in the poll, Democrats hold a nine-point advantage over Republicans (48 percent to 39 percent) in voters' preference of which party they want to control Congress. That finding is essentially unchanged from July, when Democrats held a 10-point edge over Republicans (48 percent to 38 percent).
How about it, Democratic politicians? Take my bumper sticker, please. This one:
Got fear? Republicans do.
Picture not mine, though.
