Well This Sucks

My Way News - GOP Gains Ground in Battle for Congress:
The AP-Ipsos poll asked Americans if the election for the House were held today, would they vote for the Democratic or Republican candidate in their district.

Democrats had a 14-point edge among likely voters, 53 percent to 39 percent. That's narrower than last month but still a wide gap. Since August, the GOP has attracted more married men, young people and those who live in the Northeast.

Republicans also have drawn even on the question of who would best protect the country, with 43 percent of likely voters siding with Democrats and 41 percent choosing Republicans, numbers within the poll's margin of error.

Sentiment tilted more toward Democrats in August but Republicans attracted more men, young people, minorities, and people from the Northeast and Midwest.
It ain't over 'til it's over, of course, and there's still time for the Dems to regain momentum. Granted, it's an uphill battle for them since they don't have the general media backing them up or most of big business funding them, but it's the Dems' to lose. Let's hope they can come back swinging through next month (or that the wingnuts fuck up again, probably a more likely scenario).
