Most Americans plan to vote for Democrats

That's the headline from yahoo news greeting me this morning. The AP reporter begins with "Republicans are in jeopardy of losing their grip on Congress in November."

The latest AP-Ipsos poll shows Americans hope to see Republicans lose control of Congress by a 3-1 margin. The poll found that 81 percent of the "self-described liberals" will vote Democratic, 56 percent of the moderates plan to vote for a Democrat, and 24 percent of conservatives say they will vote Democratic.

I enjoyed reading this comment from "self-described liberal" Gary Wilson, "They used to say there's nothing worse than a tax-and-spend liberal Democrat. There is something worse: It's a borrow-and-spend Republican. This is going to come back to haunt us."

I'm not fond of the corporate controlled mainstream media--MSM--or our corporate controlled government. MSM definitely deserves criticism for simply being stenographers for Republican talking points and pretending they are doing investigative journalism. This practice was disastrous for our nation pre-Iraq invasion and continues today.

"Self described liberal" I wonder how long they've been using this label. I bet we'll see more of this. So moderates and conservatives prefer for someone else to label them?

"But a Democratic takeover of either the House or Senate would be disastrous for the president, leaving both his agenda for the last two years in office and the chairmanship of investigative committees in the hands of the opposition party." Personally I'm more concerned about the effects this will have on our country. But then I'm one of those folks that doesn't believe any party should be put above country.
