US mid term elections are on Monday and by every measure the Dems should win this and certainly take back Congress, maybe even the Senate. Almost every poll puts them ahead on every question – even on the traditionally strong GOP questions.
So in short this is an election that can only be lost by the Dems, rather then won by the GOP.
That said Bush has been hitting the trial trying to talk up his base. Of note was this statement;
If you listen carefully for a Democrat plan for success, they don’t have one. Iraq is the central front in the war on terror, yet they don’t have a plan for victory.
Well neither does the White House have a plan for victory. In fact if one accepts that Iraq is the central front for the war on terror, then terror is winning hands down.
