My belief in a GOP win for both houses is based on the dying numbers within the MSM. Look at the newspaper lay-offs, Couric's C-BS "news" beaten by Magilla Gorilla re-runs. It goes on and on. Rush has 20 million+ listeners everyday! Katie, Larry, Matthews et al can't come close collectively! NO ONE IS BUYING THEIR TRIPE!

No doubt MSM is in trouble. It is as if they could reverse their decline by attacking the GOP and Bush. If that were true they would be in better shape today.

Now that is an interesting idea, worth following up with some precision. I wonder if there is a relationship between GOP advance and MSM decline--and I'm not talking exclusively about newspapers, since the Internet has cut into hard-copy media across the board. Could one do a comparative study of, say, rise or fall of NYT circulation or CNN viewership against the rise or fall of the number of registered Republicans or self-identified conservatives over the same time period? Would such a comparison be meaningful? Would the two have a relationship?
Sorry. I've been working all night on a project, so I'm rambling, but I can't get the concept out of my head. If there is an inverse pattern--one going up, one going down--then it might prove useful.

Don't forget about the campuses filled with eager liberal wanna-be's. As long as conservative America doesn't sit at home as a protest, we should do alright. The sad thing is that it isn't necessarily the Democrats that will defeat us, it will be our own who have been numbed into thinking only the worst of the Republicans.
