Bush, Republicans Lose Edge On National Security

So says one poll.

For the first time since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, national security is no longer President Bush's trump card.

With violence grinding on in Iraq, a majority of Americans have been telling pollsters in recent weeks that they trust Democrats as much or more than Bush or his Republican allies in Congress to protect the country, combat terrorism and run a sound foreign policy.

"The advantage the president has had on national security is either much smaller now or is perhaps gone," said pollster Scott Rasmussen. "What has been new in the last few months is a decline in support among the Republican base. Republicans are beginning to have doubts about the connection between Iraq and the larger war on terror. And they are less confident that we are doing well in the war on terror."

That makes the Democrats' and media's salivating over the possibility of a November blowout more likely.

For those who want the GOP punished and chastised for their errant ways-- well, that's going to happen. You don't need to avoid voting; the GOP will probably lose one or both houses of Congress this November.

But maybe disaffected GOP voters should consider making sure they vote in record-high numbers-- to avoid a wholesale bloodbath.
