The Mainstream Shifts...

...back to the sensible center.

A new ABC News/Washington Post poll indicates that Independent voters back Democratic candidates by a margin of nearly 2 to 1 (59%-31%). The poll indicates that this swing is motivated more by dissatisfaction with the GOP than by enthusiasm about the Democrats:
Forty-five percent said it would be good if Democrats recaptured the House majority, while 10 percent said it would not be. The rest said it would not matter.
However, the enthusiasm of Democratic voters compared with that of GOP voters remains high, as reported earlier.
Ninety-five percent of Democrats said they will support Democratic candidates for the House, while slightly fewer Republicans, 88 percent, said they plan to vote for their party's candidates.
In a related story, I haven't heard much from Howie lately...
