PRINCETON, NJ -- Republicans have moved ahead of Democrats by 48% to 44% among registered voters in the latest update on Gallup's generic congressional ballot for the 2010 House elections, after trailing by six points in July and two points last month.The real news is that independents are moving big time to the GOP.
Over the course of the year, independents' preference for the Republican candidate in their districts has grown, from a 1-point advantage in July to the current 22-point gap.For the Democrats the warning signs are all there. Their majority is destined to go bye-bye as they continue to shove unpleasant legislation onto the American people while ignoring the economy. For the Republicans things are not sunshine and rainbows either. The base is still not onboard with the “slap a R on everybody” game plan. Michelle Malin has some pretty good examples of how conservatives are bucking the GOP here and here.
I see Republicans making gains in 2010 as well. This is why I find it crucial that we conservatives weed out the RINOs early. The GOP stands to gain votes simply because this is a two party system. When Americans recoil at one party their only course of action is to vote for the other. As such they will more than likely be voting GOP no matter what. If this is the case, why not give these people true conservatives who will stand by their principles and words. There is no need to elect Scozzafavas who are only going to be Democrats once elected.
