Gallup: Republicans Ahead of Democrats in 2010

by the Left Coast Rebel

A new Gallup poll out today shows republicans ahead of Dems in Gallup's generic congressional ballot for the 2010 House elections :





The Nov. 5-8 update comes just after Republican victories in the New Jersey and Virginia gubernatorial elections, which saw Republicans replace Democrats as governors of those states.

As was the case in last Tuesday's gubernatorial elections, independents are helping the Republicans' cause. In the latest poll, independent registered voters favor the Republican candidate by 52% to 30%. Both parties maintain similar loyalty from their bases, with 91% of Democratic registered voters preferring the Democratic candidate and 93% of Republican voters preferring the Republican.



Now this is interesting and an explanation for why the Dems are trying to move through their agenda before Americans know what hit them. Especially telling is this chart:



2010 Generic Congressional Ballot Vote Preference, Among Independents -- 2009 Trend

Independents now favor the GOP candidate in their district by a 22 gap. The big question for me and for the future of the nation is simple.

Can the party put forth electable conservatives that will not betray the party tradition of limited government on both the taxation and spending side? And if so, will these new leaders enter Washington and do as they promise?

It's time for a massive vetting process, readers, give me names!

  2. Vetting is right! We must not allow mediocre RINOs to populate the ballots next November.
