A poll sponsored by a trio of Connecticut newspapers finds Republican Rep. Nancy Johnson with a slight, 9-point lead over Democratic Rep. James Maloney in the race for the state's redrawn 5th District.

Johnson and Maloney, both incumbents, were thrown together when Connecticut lost one of its seats in Congress after the 2000 Census. The survey of likely voters found Johnson leading 50 percent to 41 percent, with 9 percent of respondents saying they were undecided.

Only a liberal newspaper would call a 9 point lead slight.

It's about as slight as Jim Maloney's waistline. The only reason I'm voting on Tuesday is to vote against that fat union slug.

A slight nine point lead? Only for a Republican.

Oh now, now. It's not partisan. I think it's an East Coast thing. Because out in California a seven-point lead for an incumbent governor is a "quite comfortable, cruising to re-election" margin. :-p

It would be slight if this was October 4, but alas it is November 4, and it is huge. Barring an absolute disaster in the next 36 hours, Johnson should win.

Whoop-dee-do.

As I just posted on another thread:

Nancy Johnson - "I'm the oldest member of Congress, and I'll fight the privitization of Social Security."

Thank God she'll get elected (the sad part is that I sent her money and I'll probably vote for her.)

At least I didn't get Shays in the redistricting.
