The key thing to watch is the slippage among Republicans. There is a critical mass at some point, where Republicans are so unhappy with the whole lot of em that they just stay home. That hasn't happened yet, but it could. (That, and redistricting, is what killed the Democrats in 94.) Plus it is only March. The key thing to watch is the slippage among Republicans.

The question remains whether or not the actual voters in states with Republican congressmen want a Democrat controlled Congress. The overall opinion is really irrelevent in this situation. Also, people will often say one thing to a polster and do another when they enter the voting booth. People can find it very difficult to break with a pattern of behavior even if they know on a intellectual level that it is in their best interest. I'd love to see the Republicans lose control of Congress, but I'm certainly not holding my breath expecting it to happen. I had read the MSN article too and was thinkig about blogging on it myself, I probably should have just done that. ;) I certainly agree that the Bush Administration has produced many utter failures, but I’m still not willing to put much stock in the poll numbers.
