Fewer than one in 10 adults say they would prefer a congressional candidate who is a Republican and who agrees with Bush on most major issues, according to a USA TODAY/CNN/Gallup Poll taken Friday through Sunday. Even among Republicans, seven of 10 are most likely to back a candidate who has at least some disagreements with the president.
Did you see that?? Less than 10% say they want a Congressional candidate who agees with Bush on most major issues?? This is borderline cataclysmic. This is the stuff of potential Democratic landslides.
If the Democrats play their cards right.
If the Democrats don't let the Naked Emperor off the hook.
If the Democrats guts it up and act like Democrats.
P.S. And this must be making the radical rightwingers just writhe in agony:
A 53% majority say they trust what Bush says less than they trusted previous presidents while they were in office. In a specific comparison with President Clinton, those surveyed by 48%-36% say they trust Bush less.
