from your paper to god's ears

the seattle times sez independents are siding w/democrats:

two weeks before midterm elections, republicans are losing the battle for independent voters, who now strongly favor democrats on iraq and other major issues facing the country and overwhelmingly prefer to see them take over the house in november, according to a new washington post-abc news poll.

the poll underscores how much of a drag the war threatens to be on republican candidates in competitive races. with debate under way in washington about possible course changes in iraq, more americans polled cite the war as the most important issue in determining their vote next month, and those who do favor democrats over republicans by 76 percent to 21 percent.

independents are poised to play a pivotal role in next month's elections because democrats and republicans are basically united behind candidates of their own parties. the independent voters surveyed said they plan to support democratic candidates over republicans by roughly 2 to 1 — 59 percent to 31 percent — the largest ratio in any post-abc news poll this year.

Yep, the 'Demon'crats may be prematurely "measuring the drapes", but with all the things GW Bush has done in Iraq, he should be "measuring the cell" at the Hauge where soon he'll be facing war crimes.
Nice blog you have here!
