National Journal reporting tie on partisan identification.

(Via Ace of Spades) All tied up at 42/42.  The important paragraph is below:

Democrats still outnumbered Republicans in terms of party identification in this poll by 6 points, 45 percent to 39 percent. Democrats also favored their own party’s congressional candidates 83 percent to 7 percent. But voters who call themselves independents gave GOP candidates the edge by 14 points, 38 percent to 24 percent. And self-identified Republicans supported their own party’s candidates 85 percent to 3 percent.

That is a meltdown, from the Democrats’ point of view: unlike Ace, I’m willing to buy that this represents a desire to swing the pendulum back.  Either that, or they just want to see some ruthlessness directed constructively for a change.  The kind we’re getting now seems sort of counter-productive.

  1. I am not trying to be pessimistic but I wouldn’t get too excited. Even though campaigning for 2010 is just a few months away, and in some instances already started, this margin is waaaay to close to being thought of as a sure thing.

    The Progladytes are may be drunk with power but they aren’t stupid, they can still turn it around. Plus, you have the GOP shooting themselves in the foot factor to consider.
