According to the poll, 38 percent of so-called independents say they will vote for Republicans this November, with only 30 percent for Democrats. Four years ago, ahead of the '06 midterms, the same poll found that 40 percent of independents favored Democrats, with only 24 percent for Republicans.

In four years of Obama/Pelosi/Reid our country has gotten far worse what with our deficit having quadrupled, two major wars still ongoing, domestic terrorism increasing, the morally bankrupt garnering more "rights" and unemployment seeing record numbers. So while Republicans shouldn't start getting giddy just yet, I think it's a safe bet that we'll be seeing a record set of Americans turning out come November and making themselves heard.
