Everybody's Mad At George

Washington Post (10.24.06):
"Two weeks before the midterm elections, Republicans are losing the battle for independent voters, who now strongly favor Democrats on Iraq and other major issues facing the country and overwhelmingly prefer to see them take over the House in November, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. The new poll underscores how much of a drag the war threatens to be on Republican candidates in competitive races." Independent Voters Favor Democrats by 2 to 1 in Poll
"With debate underway in Washington about possible course changes in Iraq, Americans cite the war as the most important issue in determining their vote next month more often than any other issue, and those who do favor Democrats over Republicans by 76 percent to 21 percent." "The independent voters surveyed said they plan to support Democratic candidates over Republicans by roughly 2 to 1 -- 59 percent to 31 percent -- the largest margin in any Post-ABC News poll this year." The poll, via AmericaBlog.
