GARY WAGNER:

I agree with Alan Abramowitz in general about the risk Republicans have coming up. Hopefully they have seen how the Democrats misunderstood their victories in 2006 and 2008 and assumed that the country had suddenly lurched as far left as the leaders. Voters never embraced the left wing radical agenda. They got disgusted with Republicans and wanted to punish them.

The country isn't going to suddenly lurch far right in November. Voters are now as disgusted with Democrats - possibly moreso because they made things partisan politics worse instead of fixing them. A vote against a party should never be read as a mandate. The democrats know that now. They are probably going to pay a pretty high price for that in November.
