On Saturday we reported on

On Saturday we reported on the New York Times/CBS News poll that showed the Republicans jumping out to a seven-point lead in the generic Congressional preference poll. Agreeing for once with the Times, we didn’t attach much significance to it. This morning, however, USA Today, in a story headlined “Late Shift Appears to Favor GOP,” reports that the Republicans now have a six point lead, 51% to 45%, in the last pre-election USA Today/CNN/Gallup poll. So it does appear that quite a few voters are breaking toward the GOP. Whether this affects the relatively few competitive races that will determine the composition of the House and Senate remains to be seen, but it appears, at a minimum, that the Republicans should be insulated against a disastrous Tuesday night.
