Dems Can Run But They Can’t Hide

The number of polls indicating a November electoral blowout of historic earthquake-tsunami proportions continues to grow. At this morning’s ABC NEWS, “ABC News Poll: Ahead of 2010 Midterm Elections, Incumbent Support Its Lowest Since 1994: More Than Half Say Come November Elections, They’ll Look for Someone New“:

A third of registered voters are inclined to reelect their representatives in Congress, the fewest since the Republican Party rode voter discontent to control of the House and Senate 16 years ago, according to a new ABC News-Washington Post poll.

Nearly six in 10 said they’ll instead look for someone new come the fall elections.

The impact on congressional races is uncertain, and the finding may chill incumbents of all stripes. But the dynamic does have a partisan cast: Republicans and swing-voting independents alike are far more likely than Democrats to be looking for change in Congress.

Plus, yesterday at Gallup, “‘Enthusiastic’ Voters Prefer GOP by 20 Points in 2010 Vote.” And recall last week’s Pew survey, “Distrust, Discontent, Anger and Partisan Rancor.”

President Barack Obama’s victory in Election 2008 was one of the greatest political triumphs in American history. But as things look now, he may also be remembered as recording the most massive midterm electoral losses in American history. If Sean Trende’s right, we could see Democratic Party losses into the 100s. Talk about CHANGE!
