This man knows his polling numbers:
The current results are as favorable for Republicans or more so than the CNN/Gallup polls taken at this point in the 1994, 1996, 1998, 2000, 2002 and 2004, cycles in which Republican House candidates received more votes than Democratic candidates . All of which leads me to second Charlie Cook’s suggestion that if the election were held today, Republicans would gain more than the 40 seats they need to get a majority in the House. I would go further and say that if the election were held today Republicans would do better than in 1994 or 2002, their best years since the “had enough?” Republican landslide of 1946.
This is the real reason the President suddenly wants to talk with the GOP and be reasonable. He had no such interest in doing so when his numbers were up and he had a supermajority in the Senate. Now he’s begging house Republicans to give him an issue that will save his party’s bacon come November.
Here’s a thought…Give him nothing and let him own his own failure.
