Republicans Pulling Away?

Public unhappiness with the Democrats’ legislative agenda–government health care, tax and trade, cash for clunkers and various bailouts–is increasingly being reflected in the generic Congressional preference numbers. Today Scott Rasmussen finds support for Republican Congressional candidates at its “highest level in recent years.” Republican candidates enjoy a five-point lead over the Democrats, 43-38 percent. That represents a stunning turnaround from Election Day 2008, when the Democrats had a six-point lead in the Congressional preference poll.
