CNN poll: GOP has erased party popularity gap in Congress

Washington (CNN) — Eleven months before crucial midterm elections, a national poll indicates that the public is divided over whether the country would be better off with Democrats or Republicans controlling Congress.

According to a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey released Thursday, 40 percent of people questioned say the U.S. would be better off if Democrats ran Congress while 39 percent feel things would be better if Republicans took charge on Capitol Hill. The 1-point margin is a statistical tie.

Support for Democrats is down from a 10-point advantage in August and a 25-point margin in January.

So, I just have this to say:

for all the whiners over the past few months, the David Frums of the world who sat and bemoaned the death of the GOP, about how we needed a “big tent” and about how mainstream conservative values, even though twice as many Americans identify with being conservative as do with being liberal, the electoral answer was always to moderate.  moderate.  moderate.

Give up on life! It’s a ‘divisive’ issue.

Embrace the environment! It’s the way of a new generation!

Embrace gay marriage!  The upcoming generation doesn’t ‘hate’ gays they say.

End the culture war!  It offends our many liberal friends who make us uncomfortable at our yuppie parties.

The “Rockefeller Republican” types.  The intractable forces of caterwauling beltwayism, defeatism and deafening cowardice.  Pretty much everyone who has ever quoted David Frum positively in any setting.  McCain voters.  You know the type.

Politics has a natural cycle.  We listen to these morons and vipers at the cost of the morale of our own people, the real people, when we give in to their demands for the right to become leftism-lite.

Every campaign promises “bold new leadership” and yet virtually none delivers, because their professional class of political consultant has become disgusting reptiles like David Frum.  People who play politics, people who are unpatriotic Canadians and aren’t fit to be real Americans.
