Carville's Liberal Polling Outfit: Democrats Lead Republicans 47 - 40

...but not in a number you want.

Democrats lead 47-40 among "drop off voters" -- voters not likely to vote this year. I suppose that's not actually as bad as I imagined to be; I figured it would be 55-35 or something. But then, he does skew (I imagine) a bit liberal.

On the actual number you want to know: the GOP leads 49-42 among likely voters.

Thanks to ArthurK for suggesting the dishonest headline, which is my favorite kind of headline, because it makes me feel like I'm a real part of the MFM.

More: At Hot Air. Same poll:

Economy – Republicans lead 48/36 “On your side” – Rep, 41/37 Government spending – Rep, 49/31 Federal deficit – Rep, 50/32

My favorite is the "on your side" one, because that's an emotional driver -- and you know I think emotion is 88% of this -- and because Democrats usually enjoy a big advantage there. They are the party that's quote "for the little guy" unquote and quote "workin' for the workin' man" unquote and quote "all the rest of the horseshit they've been peddling since William Jennings Bryan" unquote.

And now we edge them. Not a big edge, but an edge.

They really had to work hard to reverse that impression from a net plus to a net minus. And work hard at it they did.
