Last week, there was a large amount of GOP crowing about how Gallup’s registered voters poll on the generic Congressional ballot showed the GOP at a ten-point lead.  That’s the largest lead the GOP had ever had, or, frankly, any lead the Democrats had.

One week later….

It disappeared.



From ten points up to tied in a week.  A ten-point swing in a week.  The only thing that could attribute such a swing is the end of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

(Roughly a month earlier, the Democrats had a short-lived six-point lead.)

I’ve noticed the Gallup poll isn’t getting nearly as much attention today that it did last week.  Funny how that happens this media cycle.

    I suspect that the non-stop talk about a GOP landslide is intended to give cover for the Republican-owned electronic voting machine companies to steal many races.

    Anyone who trusts the black box voting machines is a lunatic.

    A gop landslide will be directly attributable to a depressed democratic base, from which the dem leadership will learn absolutely nothing. That’s just how they roll.
