Democrats hold a 10-point lead over Republicans on the Generic Congressional Ballot for the week ending December 9, 2012.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 46% of Likely U.S. Voters would vote for the Democrat in their districts congressional race if the election were held today, while 36% would choose the Republican instead.

Let's wake up, GOP. Kissing Obama's fanny ain't doin' it for ya.
The poll makes no sense. How can people (supposedly independents) switch their decision to vote Democrat just because Obama won?
Would be bad if there were an election tomorrow.
On November 5, I’d have said Rasmussen’s poll as now was complete BS. Apparently, this country has slid so far down the sh!tter now it is forever lost. Sloth and greed have outpaced honor and the value of work and worthwhile endeavors.
From my own personal perspective, I think some of this is due to complete disillusionment with Republicans in general, at least for the RINO ones in the eyes of real conservatives. I myself wouldn’t and won’t vote for either of my two Georgia Republican Senators again. In fact, I’m going to actively work against them to put real men or women in their place - honest hardworking men or women.
Easy. The people have been corrupted.
“...likely to be well administered for a course of years, and can only end in Despotism, as other forms have done before it, when the people shall become so corrupted as to need despotic Government, being incapable of any other.” B. Franklin, 1787
Id normally say this poll was complete BS but looking around, yeah its probably true. Just look around you, look at what is happening to this country. This is not the America our Founding Fathers would recognize anymore..we have become what we always feared we would become, Venezuela
When the nads left the GOP so did the support for them. Keep it up Boehner and you’ll lose control of the House too.
46% is about the Democrat base. If the question was “are the Democrats perfect?” about 46% would say yes.
What’s going on here is the GOP base is MIA. For some unknown reason, the GOP base is failing to support the Republican party.
Why buy generic coke when the real thing costs the same?
Same for Govt.
If there is no real difference, might as well get the name brand Big Government rather than the cheap quality imitation.
Perfect sense. Just that less people[Conservatives, libertarians, etc] support the GOP. The poll is obvious.
Humans are herd creatures.
But when they eventually turn on Hussein because of his failures, it will be in the same herd manner.
In the meantime, keep your powder dry.
You have it backwards-the GOP is no longer supporting the base. Why should we support any party who is hellbent on being Democratlight?
It's not even the America I recognized from a few short years ago anymore.
Ironic how you all claim things have changed.
I guess since I’ve always lived here (physically beautiful Ft. Lauderdale suburbs) it hasn’t changed for me.
It’s just ideologically destitute around here.
I agree..its not the America I once knew anymore..its been taken over by Communist, Socialist a-holes who want to turn America into the Soviet Union..its what they have always wanted, now they practically have it..before WE outnumbered THEM, now it seems its the other way around..just throw enough free crap to people and you own them for life
But, even here in the relative conservative bastion of Texas, we are feeling the Leftist invasion. Even in my formerly conservative city of Fort Worth, you cannot refuse to hire, rent to, or promote a cross-dresser at the risk of your business being shut down.
Would it be any worse than today?
Can you think of any reason for the numbnuts GOP to survive in the future? What will their platform be?
