Rasmussen: Republicans Extend Lead to Seven Points on Generic Ballot; Independents Favor Republicans 44-20

1994-ish:

Republican candidates have extended their lead over Democrats to seven points, their biggest lead since early September, in the latest edition of the Generic Congressional Ballot.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 44% would vote for their district’s Republican congressional candidate while 37% would opt for his or her Democratic opponent.

...
Voters not affiliated with either party continue to heavily favor Republicans, 44% to 20%.

I'm curious-- if Republicans take the House in 2010, will the media even report it?

Well, I guess that's silly. Of course they will. What they have refrained from mentioning is that Democrats actually gained control of Congress in 2006.

Politico notes the former Obama supporters turned opponents are, as you'd expect, whites. It's only a matter of time before racism becomes this Administration's only policy point.

Just 39 percent of white Americans now approve of President Obama's job performance, a steep drop-off of support since he was inaugurated in January, according to the latest Gallup Poll.

In his first full week in office, starting Jan. 26, just over six in 10 white people gave him their approval. Now that number is down to under four in 10, indicating a net drop of 22 points.

Black voters, meanwhile, have continued to support Obama to the tune of approximately 90 percent. And Democrats and liberals give Obama approval ratings of above 80 percent.

"Though he maintains widespread loyalty among Democrats, the small loss in support he has seen from his fellow partisans seems to be exclusively from white Democrats," Gallup's finding says.
