The Weekend in Politics

While I was in New York City, a lot of Americans swung their support to democrats.
This from PoliticalWire:

Democrats Gain in Senate and Gubernatorial Races

A new WSJ/Zogby Interactive Battleground States poll bodes well for a number of Democratic Senate and gubernatorial candidates. Among the highlights:
  • Jim Webb (D) now leads Sen. George Allen (R-VA) 47.9% to 46.6%
  • Jack Carter (D) and Jim Pederson (D) each trail by four points in their respective races against Sen. John Ensign (R-NV) and Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ)
  • Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) beats Ned Lamont (D) 49.4% to 39.4%
  • Dina Titus (D) leads Rep. Jim Gibbons (R-NV) 46.8% to 44.1% in Nevada‚Äôs gubernatorial race
Before the Macaca comment the other week senator Allen (R-VA) was leading by eleven points. Now the incumbent is lagging challenger Jim Webb. Carter and Pederson were both down by 20 or more points in the last few months, now each is down only 4 to a well-funded, well-known, disgusting, sitting senator.

Maybe I should go to NYC more often.
