If this trend doesn't turn around, and the news out of Iraq doesn't improve dramatically, at least one (and maybe both) House of Congress will change hands in January, giving Democrats subpoena power which they will surely use "liberally".

Fox News Poll Not Good for Republicans

I guess Republicans should then stay away from Fox News polls.

voters say they are much more likely to support a challenger over the incumbent candidate,

We already did. We voted against the RINO incument and replaced him with a conservative candidate in our safely GOP district.

Except for the threat of an impeachment of W, I really don't mind the Republicans getting their butts kicked. They have spent money like drunken sailors for several years, offer consistently weak support the President and war publicly, and waste their time on things like flag amendments. Maybe it is time for a little house cleaning.

If you're unhappy with what's going on, write, call, or do something to let your rep know. For God's sake don't vote for the other party. That's just plain stupid. If you want to get rid of someone like Arlen Specter then vote for his Republican opponent in the primary and oust him that way, don't vote for his democratic opponent. What idiots.

I stopped watching FOX in the evening after they went over the dark side after Israel Lebanon incursion. Polls are useless in general. And I suspect that any large terror attack that was thwarted today were to happen between now and election could change polling data considerably.

We are winning the war in Iraq. Although we have lost some very good men (I pray for each one of them), this campaign has gone very well. Unfortunately, the press and the Surrender Party (Reid, Pelosi, Kennedy) have repeatedly told the American people that the war is not going well. It is a self-fulfilling prophecy. This is a HUGE political lie, and the Republicans unfortunately are either unwilling or unable to deal with it and get the truth out. THE IRAQ WAR HAS GONE VERY WELL! The Surrender Party is blowing smoke!

Old news. Let them poll now after the al-qaeda has attempted to take out the five planes.

"giving Democrats subpoena power which they will surely use "liberally"."

So what? As we have been told the last five years regarding the Patriot Act, if a person hasn't done anything wrong, he has nothing to worry about.

Oh God, I'm feeling the exact same level of terror I felt when I read this poll in 2000, 2002 and 2004! Not again!!!! If only the Republicans could win one of these elections after these rock-solid polls...

With all due respect, the Opinion Dynamics Polling Organization has one of the worst records in the business.

I always consult Rasmussen. Admittedly, the GOP still lags in his, but by less than 10 points.

Polls, shmolls. We'll see what happens in November 2008.

If I was ever asked in a poll whom I would support, and I have not been, I would not be above giving an opinion which was not my own. I suspect I am not alone in this.

Harry Reid, John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi, and Oshma Bin Laden.

What do they have in common?

They want you to vote DemoRat in November.

Iraq is going VERY WELL. The news coming out of there is tainted by the lerftist media. Unfortunately, even some "conservatives" are buying into this crap about the war not going well...

I guess FOX thinks that Americans are pissed off and in an impeachment mood. We'll see. I'm just not buying it. I think Americans are a little smarter than that and a hell of a lot smarter than the media.

National polls can not predict the outcome of individual races. I do believe Republicans need to fight like they've never fought before but what I think these polls reflect more than anything is the increasing polarization not voting trends. It is hard given the hyper politicization to get a representative sample of the public. If this were a Presidential election then this would be a problem but this is not.

Earlier this week on his radio program, Limbaugh read article headline after article headline with the same sentiment and tone of the one you posted suggesting that the GOP was in grave danger and in an all but hopeless position for the upcoming election in about 3 months.

All the articles were written prior to November.........2004

Democrats (63 percent) and independents (51 percent) are much more likely than Republicans (22 percent) to say they would vote for the challenger

How many of those indy's are really dems?
