Unprecedented 10 Point Republican Tidal Wave


by the Left Coast Rebel

A tidal wave is 'a comin' this November:

PRINCETON, NJ -- Republicans lead by 51% to 41% among registered voters in Gallup weekly tracking of 2010 congressional voting preferences. The 10-percentage-point lead is the GOP's largest so far this year and is its largest in Gallup's history of tracking the midterm generic ballot for Congress.

The 'unprecedented' numbers above go all the way back to 1942, when Gallup started tracking midterm generic congressional ballots. Consider it a direct repudiation of Obama's radicalism, incompetence, cronyism, nefarious motive and intentions, insistence on an agenda against the American mainstream and the insistent Democrat plan to bankrupt this nation.

The Gallup results shouldn't surprise anyone that has been paying attention.

This is perhaps the only time that I have enjoyed reading Think Progress' Yglesias :

There’s also a huge enthusiasm gap in favor of the Republicans. It’s also worth keeping in mind that because of the way current districts are drawn, if the national vote splits 50-50 that will produce a Republican majority.

Don't let your guard down - our work is still cut out for us in primaries coming up soon across the nation and nothing is set in stone at this point. Remember to support principled conservatives via. the weekly Ten Bucks Friday poll. Also read Last Tradition this morning who has a couple videos up of Obama's lies....


  1. Impressive poll, but I am still dubious about taking the House. There is just no overestimating how difficult it is to flip the House. House incumbents(frequently aided by gerrymandered districts) enjoy extraordinarily high re-election rates. Even when voters tell pollsters they despise Congress in a generic poll, they'll still vote for their specific representative who is often the conduit by which federal services are delivered or expedited to individuals, municipalities, and businesses in the district. House elections are almost always "local" (in the Tip O'Neill sense). In the almost 100 years since we have been been electing Senators directly (only since the 17th Amendment was ratified in 1913) the House of Representatives has never flipped majorities unless the Senate flipped first or at the same time. If conventional wisdom is correct and the Republicans take the House but not the Senate, it would be an historic first... Soooo either the GOP takes both, or they take the Senate and fall just short on the House.

    My complete analysis here: 10 in '10

  2. Thanks for the TBF plug!

    At this point it's all about managing expectations and preparing for a massive GOTV campaign. The Dems are doing an excellent job of keeping the whole country angry at them, but the whole world could turn upside down between now and November.
