The mainstream media is peddling the line that the Democrats are staging a comeback, slicing Republican leads.

It is absolute nonsense.

A close review of polling in every close House race in the nation indicates that Republicans now lead in 53 seats currently held by Democrats and are within 5 points in 20 more. And the trend is Republican, not Democrat.

Of the races where comparative data over the past few weeks is available, Republicans have gained in 33 while Democrats have gained in only 10.

On the Senate level, Republicans now lead in all 10 states that are necessary for GOP control of the Senate, the smallest margin coming in Nevada where the Rasmussen Poll has the Republican, Sharron Angle, 4 points ahead.

In West Virginia, Wisconsin, Washington state, and Illinois, Republicans have surged ahead dramatically in recent days and only in Colorado and California has there been slippage. Here are the 10 states which are now represented by Democrats where Republicans have the lead:


North Dakota +45 West Virginia + 6
Indiana +18 Colorado + 5
Arkansas +18 Washington State + 5
Wisconsin +12 Illinois + 4
Pennsylvania + 7 Nevada + 4


Republican gains should be even greater than this polling indicates. The trend lines are decidedly in the GOP's favor and Gallup Poll indicates that Republicans are twice as likely to be enthusiastic about voting as Democrats.

The only note of caution for Republicans is that their leads in Democratic House seats are not substantial. In only 14 seats does the Republican candidate lead by more than 10 points and most of those are open Democratic seats. But the Republican turnout machine — animated by tea party activists — will likely outperform its Democratic rivals.

The Democratic Party has no message. Its campaigns are a hodgepodge of personal negatives and fabricated issues.

No Democratic candidate is even trying to defend Obama's healthcare legislation or argue that his stimulus program is working.

Cap and trade is never mentioned by Democrats on the campaign trail. We have the spectacle of the most substantive legislative program in generations having been passed by Congress and now finding that it has no defenders in the election campaign, only Democrats scurrying to prove their independence.

All signs point to a growing Republican landslide.

The gigantic Republican gains of the past week indicate that party trend is now beginning to kick in big time.

The Republican leads until this past week are largely due to the voting decisions of people who closely follow the process. The surge in Republican support in the past seven to 10 days indicates that the less educated voters who do not follow politics as closely are breaking for the Republicans. Normally, these downscale voters are Democrats, but the economy and the alienating values of the Obama administration (e.g., ground zero mosque) seem to be driving them to the GOP.

Also boosting Republican prospects is the absence of social issues in the national debate.

These elections are turning on unemployment, deficits, the economy, healthcare, and the national debt, not on gay rights or abortion. So, social liberals and libertarians see no reason not to vote Republican.

Only in California are these traditional issues working in driving voters to the Democrats.

A landslide without precedent appears to be in the making.
