Who's got it?

The good news is that recent Senate polls show Dems gaining ground--a solid lead for picking up seats in Montana, and in Ohio, and in Pennsylvania, plus surging in Tennessee and closing the gap in Virginia and even Arizona. Not to mention staying close in Rhode Island and Missouri. Winning in 6 of those 8 (and holding on to New Jersey which is turning against Menendez) will be tough, but it's not unthinkable.

The bad news is that nationally, Bush is gaining some ground (just in time) in approval polls, and Republicans are as well, showing up as tied (after being down double digits) in a generic congressional poll.

It seems to me that both of these trends can't, or at least won't, continue.

I don't think it helps that some aspiring Dems continue to talk bad about the party. That's right, Obama, I'm looking at you. You're on my shit list for this week.
