Is It All Slipping Away for the Democrats?

Update: Hey look, 19 months later some morons are reading my very first blog post. Congratulations, you have impeccable research skills.

The news is all good today with the GOP numbers getting better and panic mode setting in for the Democrats.
A nationwide Pew Research Center survey finds voting intentions shifting in the direction of Republican congressional candidates in the final days of the 2006 midterm campaign. The new survey finds a growing percentage of likely voters saying they will vote for GOP candidates. However, the Democrats still hold a 48% to 40% lead among registered voters, and a modest lead of 47%-43% among likely voters.

The narrowing of the Democratic lead raises questions about whether the party will win a large enough share of the popular vote to recapture control of the House of Representatives. The relationship between a party's share of the popular vote and the number of seats it wins is less certain than it once was, in large part because of the increasing prevalence of safe seat redistricting. As a result, forecasting seat gains from national surveys has become more difficult.
The Senate races are tightening up, with even a RINO like Lincoln Chafee suddenly leading in Rhode Island. This has to leave the Democrats flummoxed.

Add to that the loathesome Saddam Hussein being fitted for a noose and you have apoplexy on the idiotic left.

I've been figuring with all the predictions of doom the GOP would lose upward of a dozen House seats and three Senate seats, but now I'm not so sure. I reckon I can wait until later Monday or early Tuesday to issue final predictions, but as of now, things look much better.

Hey JWF - nice new blog you got here! I wish you the best of luck with it and believe in your "prognostication" for the mid-term elections!
Um, sure hope this doesn't mean you won't be posting on LGF anymore!

Hey, if I can support you with any snide, satirical or parody-laces audio recordings, just drop me a hint!

Didn't ALWAYS agree with your LGF comments, but that's something I consider a GOOD SIGN! (I do NOT want to over-program my inputs!)

Good going, you under-dressed fool. Now Rush is going to have to dig a little deeper for his show prep.

Congratulations anyway :)

JWF, Jim here, congrats on the blow. Don't forget we can use this as forum to bash old you-know-who.
