50 Seats? They're Gonna Lose 50 Seats?!
This is from Fox News and it's clearly meant to scare the hell out of the disgusted conservatives so they'll actually show up to the polls, but even if it's half true .... Brand-new internal polling is smelling like ass for Hastert & Co.
"The data suggests Americans have bailed on the speaker," a Republican source briefed on the polling data told FOX News. "And the difference could be between a 20-seat loss and 50-seat loss."Fox says reps in tight races are already canceling campaign appearances by Hastert. The "authoritative" new polling shows the Foley thing is going to be crucial, minds are made up, and that Democrats are seen as the better party to "fight corruption," by 2-1.
You have got to be corrupt to make Democrats look like the anti-corruption party. Crazy.
And Rasmussen just came out with this number: 61% think the GOP's running a big Hastert/Foley cover-up. Meanwhile in the Ohio Senate race, Sherrod Brown's now up to a solid 8-point lead over Mike DeWine.
