Gallup Poll Has Dems Retaking the House

Speaker Boehner has had a disastrous run since January and must be thankful that the next Congressional election is not next week.  For if it were, Nancy Pelosi would become Speaker once more.

That is the conclusion drawn from yesterday's Gallup poll that had voters favoring Democratic candidates over Republicans by a 51 to 44 margin.  Earlier in the week Public Policy Polling released a poll that had voters favoring Democrats 47 to 40.

  1. But you have to remember, John, that the flaw in this thinking is to superimpose this percent onto a generic national question. Once you look at specific districts, everything changes, much like how Gore could win the popular vote, but not the Presidency because of the distribution of voters.
