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.
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.
