So much good news floating around out there for Dems… it’s kind of scary. It’s kind of getting our hopes up, like those exit polls on election day in 2004 that showed Kerry winning. Hopefully just posting a few links to upbeat stories about upbeat Demsóand downcast Republicansówon’t screw this all up…
Polls Good & Tight: Some races are still in play, but things are looking good for Dems.
Gas Prices Down: That usually helps the party in power, but not this time.
Independent Streak: Independent voters backing Dems by a 2 to 1 margin.
Independents Mo: They’re breaking for Dems, and there are more and more of them out there.
Rocktober Surprise: This absolutely heartbreaking campaign ad featuring Michael J. Fox pleading on behalf of a Dem candidate who support stem cell research is having an impact in the Missouri senate race and will soon run in Maryland and Illinois.
Governors’ Races: More blue than red.
Republicans Turning on Each Other: Lindsey Graham is so mad at Rumsfeld and “the generals leading the war” that he soiled his own trousers.
More Indictments Coming? Remember the Abromoff scandal? It’s fresh in these guys’ minds.
