42/38 Republican/Democrat: fourth week in a row that it’s been favoring the GOP, so expect it to bounce back soon. And then expect it bounce back again to favor the GOP, because while any individual week may not matter, the trend is indicative of the notion that the Democrats have managed to do in three years what it took the GOP twelve: lose the mantle of being the trustworthy party.
If you like, you can instead couch it in terms of Bad vs. Worse. As long as you understand that the best way to fix Bad is to get some skin into the game on the local level.
