Well, he's kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

More Polling News

Hi Again,

Just a couple of tidbits from the world of polls.

First, an Associated Press poll of registered voters found that 50% want Democrats to control Congress compared to 41% who want Republicans to control Congress. Now, keep in mind that this is a national poll and Congressional elections are heavily dependent on local district boundaries and the geographical distribution of Democrats and Republicans. But it does provide another indication that Bush and Republicans in general are being blamed for the widely perceived "wrong track" that the country is on. That seems fair to me since the GOP controls the White House and Congress - hard for them to blame Democrats under those circumstances.

Second, I heard on CNN earlier that Kerry is ahead in Ohio now 49% to 42%. I haven't been able to verify that number on the web. If anyone can find a recent (since May 5th) poll from Ohio or any of the other swing states, I'd really like to know where to find it.
