RealClearPolitics has some interesting commentary on recent poll numbers:
Via Instapundit. I always laugh when I read the articles on the latest presidential approval polls, because buried underneath is also the news that Congress is doing worse... yet somehow that's never a headline. While many people right now associate Congress with the GOP... I don't think people have any faith that the Democrats would handle anything better. I sure as hell don't.
Yet there is this overwhelming sense that people are willing to vote for Democrats just to give a wake up call to the GOP. Frankly, I find voting for people you despise just to spite the people you think are potentially better is no smarter than cutting off your nose to spite your face.
If ever there was a time for a real third party to come in and do some damage, now is it. Is it the Libertarian party? Well no. Even I don't like them... they're a bunch of anarchists really. But I think a "Conservative" party (capital C... fiscally conservative) would do quite well. If non-Republicans were to come along with a new "Contract with America" that didn't try to push abortion first... they'd clean up.
