So look at the swings away from the Democratic party: a 38-point swing on health care, a 27-point swing on the economy, a 26-point swing on handling corruption in government, a 29-point swing on combating terrorism. All the progress Democrats had made on those issues during the Bush years has gone away. Is it any wonder Democratic strategists are approaching this November’s elections in a state of panic?
The only issue on which Democrats retain a statistically significant advantage over Republicans is the environment. And November is getting closer.
