Tuesday's child is full of grace

But ah, Wednesday's child is full of woe, and so it seems it will be for the Democratic party on November 3. My favorite pollster says that the next Speaker of the House will be a Republican, while the Senate Majority Leader will probably be a Democrat--though he may not be Harry Reid! Perhaps more important, because this is a Census year and many Congressional districts will be redrawn, a lot of states will have newly minted Republican governors.

Great news for the GOP? Not really, because they'll probably overreach, just as Messrs Obama and Reid have done over the past two years, and Mme Pelosi for four. Scott Rasmussen goes on to say: "But none of this means that Republicans are winning. The reality is that voters in 2010 are doing the same thing they did in 2006 and 2008: They are voting against the party in power."

The Rasmussen pollsters report that 51 percent of likely voters think that the Democrats are the party of big government, while 51 percent view Republicans as the party of big business. Who does that leave to be the party of the people--the Tea Party? Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
