Polls Continue Favoring GOP

An increasing number of public opinion polls are showing problems for the Netroots crowd.

A USA Today/Gallop poll is showing 44% approval for the President and 51% disapproval. This is a substantial gain since their mid-August poll which had 42%-54% for the President.

This poll doesn't just show a 2 point gain in approval. When combined with the 3 point drop in disapproval, it shows a 5 point improvement for the President. Many are attributing the improvements for the President to decreasing gasoline prices and his tour of speeches emphasizing his adminstration's efforts in the War on Terrorism.

Also showing trouble for the moonbats in this poll is the generic Congresional party vote (would you vote for a Democrat or a Republican for Congress). The poll showed an even 48%-48% split between likely voters who would vote for Democrats and Republicans for Congress.

One line though that should concern Republicans is among registered voters the Democrats have a strong 9 point margin (51% to 42%).

What does this mean for Republicans? Get out and vote! Do not let anyone tell you that its pointless! Voter turn-out kept Bush in office in 2004. Voter turn-out is looking like it will keep the GOP in charge of Congress in 2006.

One really good point in the poll is this quote from Reuters:

"For the first time since December 2005, a majority of people polled did not say the war in Iraq was a mistake. The respondents were evenly split at 49 percent to 49 percent, the report said." - Reuters MyWay.com Article
