Bad News for the Dems

By on 6.2.10 | 7:57AM

The latest Gallup Poll is out and it's bad news for the Democrats.  People favor the GOP for Congress 49% to 43%, and Republicans are a lot more enthusiastic about voting.

Michael Barone explains what this means:

There's no way to sping this except as bad news for Democrats. Yes, Democratic candidates may be able to beat Republican challengers here and there by attacking them as wackos. But Democrats are in trouble, as I argued in my Sunday Examiner column, on both competence and ideology-a pretty lethal combination.

It's still a long-time to November, but public attitudes on spending and health appear to be moving ever more against the Democrats.  So the ensuing months might not help the Prez and his buddies on Capitol Hill.
