Republicans Win Back Supporters

A new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds Republicans "have solidified support among voters who had drifted from the party in recent elections, putting the GOP in position for a strong comeback in November's mid-term campaign."

"The findings suggest that public opinion has hardened in advance of the 2010 elections, making it tougher for Democrats to translate their legislative successes, or a tentatively improving U.S. economy, into gains among voters."

"Republicans have reassembled their coalition by reconnecting with independents, seniors, blue-collar voters, suburban women and small town and rural voters -- all of whom had moved away from the party in the 2006 elections, in which Republicans lost control of the House. Those voter groups now favor GOP control of Congress." Read more: Republicans Win Back Supporters

Comment: Watch out, the Dems would like Republicans to get confident and blow it. Voters like it when you're humble and working hard to show you're worthy... Keep working to earn those votes, it ain't over until the election results are in, and then it's time to prove that you deserve the votes... and, if you win, time to make sure you keep the votes coming in subsequent elections. Once the Republicans are in power, the press is going to turn and all of a sudden everything that goes wrong will be the fault of those in power (unlike now when nothing is the fault of anyone other than Bush or fat-cat-capitalists).
