Midterm Polls: Democrats are Gonna Get Smoked

By Bill Maher

According to the Washington Post, and a new Post/ABC News poll

"Political handicappers rate Republicans as favorites to maintain their House majority and say the GOP has a legitimate opportunity to gain the six seats it needs to take control of the Senate... The Post-ABC survey affirms those projections, showing Republicans in a stronger position than Democrats in the states with Senate races this fall and more than holding their own in the battle for control of the House. In the 34 states with Senate races, 50 percent of voters say they favor Republicans and 42 percent favor Democrats..."

But here's the bizarre part:

"...That is the case despite the Republican Party's poor image nationally and its deficit on some important issues. About two in three Americans say the GOP is out of touch 'with the concerns of most people in the United States today.'

In other words, Americans know the Republican Party wouldn't piss on them were they aflame, and it doesn't matter. We're voting for them anyway. It's like going back to the local auto lube shop when you know they're going to sell you an air filter you don't need, leave the caps off your tires, and delay you in the store while their friends rob your house and rape your wife. On the other hand, they are convenient.
