    "An intense battle is going on right now for control of Congress, but it's overshadowed in the media by a historic race for the White House.

    So which party has the upper hand in the fight for Capitol Hill?

    The answer, according to a new national poll, appears to be the Democrats. In a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey released Tuesday, 56 percent of those questioned are backing the Democratic candidate for Congress, while 42 percent support the Republicans.

    That's a change from immediately after the GOP convention, when the Democrats had only a 3-point lead lead over the Republicans, 49 percent to 46 percent."

    I would never really depend on major media company polls.

    Compare all major studio polls and they all vary greatly! Libral media, libral results.

    The only true poll that counts, are the ones on election day, when people are leaving.

    I am sitting on pins and needles waiting to see what is going to happen. It is my hope of course, however optimistic, that Democrats take the White House, increase their seats in the Senate, and increase their seats in the House and that they put the Republicans further into the minority party where they belong.

    I dislike all of them though, Republican and Democrat alike, and they're all afraid to be on the wrong side of an issue.

    If the situation weren't 't so serious, I would laugh about Republicans being against regulation and bailouts before they were for them.

    I do, however, laugh at Republicans for their ridiculous positions on denying evolution and praying to the non-existant.

    Actually, exit polls were very inaccurate in the 2004 election.

    Taking a look at individual polls for individual races shows the dems in a much stronger position than the meaningless one posted.


    ...just sayin.

    Except when a Republican is in the lead.

    And you're thinking of exit polls. Which OW pointed out don't always work.

    Indeed. Perhaps he wants to suspend the election now too. Is that the "October Surprise?"

    Personally, I am pretty comfortable thinking McCain will win. I personally hopes he does for reasons beyond gay reasons. I prefer the most qualified.

    If Obama wins, that would be cool also. Half Black first President, good for our image world wide. I guess that would be cool. and the rest of the world will love us, which is so important. I care so much what the rest of the world thinks.. The French will love us and that is a good thing, right? The Germans and the Polish and the Slavs and the Canadiens? Right? Because we have a semi-black guy in office?
