Two new polls are out tonight from Washington Post/ABC and the Cook Political Report.

* Dems Hold Largest Head-to-Head Margin in Two Decades. The ABC/WP survey gives Democrats a 54%-41% lead over Republicans, the highest level of Dem preference in this survey this close to Election Day since 1984. Dems also lead among independents (59%-31%) and men (54%-42). The Cook Political Report survey gives Dems a 57%-35% lead among most likely voters.

* By a 20-Point Margin, Dems are Much More Enthusiastic About Midterms. 69% of Dems call the 2006 midterms more important than other congressional elections in their lifetime, versus just 49% of Republicans. (ABC/WP)

* Dems' Early Voter Contact Effort Is Paying Off. As many registered voters say, they've been contacted on behalf of a Democratic candidate as often as on behalf of a Republican candidate (about two in 10 in both cases). And the Democratic calls seems better targeted: People who've been solicited on behalf of a Democratic candidate favor the Democrat in their district by a 45-point margin; people who've been contacted on behalf of a Republican prefer the Republican by a narrower 19 points. (ABC/WP)

* Dems Lead On Every Issue. The ABC/Post poll has Dems leading on every issue, including terror (+1), Iraq (+8), North Korea (+7), ethics (+13) and the economy (+9). Almost two-thirds of independents disapprove of Iraq, including a quarter of Republicans. Of the nearly 60% of registered voters who oppose the war in Iraq, more than three quarters say they favor Democrats for Congress. (ABC/WP)

* Bush's Numbers Sink Again. Bush approval ratings fell another five points this month to 37%, his second-lowest approval rating ever in the ABC/Post poll. Even worse: Nearly twice as many registered voters say they'll cast their ballot as a way to show opposition to the president (31 percent) as to support him (17 percent). (ABC/WP)

Hello jasonmcarty! I didn't know if you guys were aware of the really bad grades Republicans were getting from our Middle East War veterans.

Congressman Tom Cole (R-OK-4) C

Congressman Ernest Istook (R-OK-05)C

Why don't Republicans support our troops? Do they hate America? They shouldn't be siding with "Al Quaeda" types.
I know, I know, this is Republican type of hate spew, but their Orwellian up-is-down speak makes me dizzy. Anyway, follow the links and lets offer as much salt to the wounds of Republicans as possible.
After all, according to the veterans, Democrats are the ones who really support our troops.
