'Tsunami' doesn't describe it 
Dems in Big Trouble says John Fund (R-Liar-Whore-Woman-beater) 


As Election Day draws closer, every major public opinion poll shifts from interviewing registered voters
to those whom it identifies as "likely" voters. Gallup, the oldest U.S. polling company, first developed the
model it uses for identifying likely voters back in 1950 and its final election polls have proven highly accurate.

You call them "accurate" because they said something you liked.

Yesterday, Gallup delivered its first 2010 "likely voter" poll and the results floored the political community.
In the generic ballot question, which asks which party a voter would favor in a generic House contest,
Gallup gave the GOP a 46% to 42% edge.

<>But that's a generic question, like, "What do you like better, comedies or action films?"
They might answer, "action films."

But if you ask them, "What do you like better, The Hangover or The New Poseidon Adventure,"

they're going to say "The Hangover" and that means your generic question reveals nothing.

But then Gallup applied two versions of its "likely voter" turnout model. In its "high turnout model,"
Republicans led Democrats by 53% to 40%. In its "low turnout model," the GOP edge was a stunning
56% to 38%. That kind of margin in favor of Republicans has never been seen in Gallup surveys.

Sounds like you're saying Republicans are going to win SO BIG, there's no reason
for a Rethug to get pout and vote if the weather is bad or they're busy that day.
You've got it allllllllll sewed up and nothing can go wrong - keep thinking that.

What should worry Democrats most is that the "low turnout model" is typical of recent midterm elections.
If the Gallup numbers hold up (and the firm cautions that "the race often tightens in the final month of
the campaign"), some word more cataclysmic than "tsunami" would be needed for the Democratic losses."

I'm going to have to see it to believe it.

It's real easy for the GOP echo-chamber to scream, "We can't lose" but the truth is,
nobody holds you sons of bitches accountable so you can predict ANYTHING
and then just slither away afterwards without having to explain your lies and misses.

I realize the average American voter is as dumb as Sarah Palin, but I can't believe they're going to
reward the Republicans, the bastards who caused people to lose their jobs and their homes.

Of course, it would be nice of the Democrats to actually try, instead of scolding theie base
and maybe they could buy some TV commercials and out up graphs like this.

America, look where Bush took us, and then notice where Obama has taken us.

<>The GOP will keep you BELOW that break-even red line.
The Democrats will lift you up - just like the chart shows.

Latinos and Americans of color, look where Bush took us,
and then notice where Obama has taken us.

Senior Americans, Bush stole your savings and now they want your Social Security
but Obama is standing in their way - can we have your vote?

But no, our brain-dead Democrats refuse to reach out and list the facts.
