2010 Elections: Voters Back Republicans over Democrats as 2010 Elections Approach, New Gallup Poll Says


(Princeton, NJ) — November 11, 2009. Republicans have surged passed Democrats as the 2010 congressional elections loom, according to a new Gallup poll. Not good news for national–or Illinois Democrats.

Registered voters in Gallup’s new poll on the generic congressional ballot for the 2010 House elections has Republicans besting Democrats 48% to 44%, after being down six points in July and two in October.

Uh, oh.

This voter discontent with Democrats should make both Governor Pat Quinn and Comptroller Dan Hynes nervous.

  1. The group purchase by Tom Cross’s Kevin Artl for challenges to conservative republicans signatures will leave a familiar taste in the mouth of democrats and others looking for something new. STOP THE CHALLENGES NOW and restore unity to the 2010 Republican Races!

  2. The Dems can’t pass ObamaCare with abortion OR a public option- and reconciliation is just an empty threat, the remaining legislation would be a hollow shell-

    And Cap-n-tax? With the evidence looking weak lately, Obama’s own #s tanking… and 11% unemployment? Good luck!

    That leaves the only major legislation enacted -even with Democrats dominating both houses- the wholly-ineffective Porkulus.

    Obama has NO political cover on that one, due to the paucity of GOP collaborators- he owns it. And all it will ever stimulate is inflation… in the months leading right-up to midterms.

    The Democrats look to face a bloodbath next fall, with some already predicting a 100+ seat loss.

    And by 2012? People will wince at the very mention of the name “Obama”- and the GOP could take 40 states running Gilbert Gottfried- LOL

    Party’s over kiddies- time to put the grown-ups back in charge.
