While i like the results, its an internet poll. *SIGH.

Interesting the Rubio does better than Crist against Meek. Where is Farleft???

I think They are off on Delaware, because a Democrat would be much closer. They are off on Nevada, because no other poll has shown Reid even close to being ahead of the worst GOP candidate. They are wrong on Florida, because Crist would win big in a general election against any Democrat because he is so well liked, Rubio is more partisan.

I believe the results with Carnahan are right on. I think that is a case where the GOP nominated a machine politician with no personality who was at least one tea party if not more. I believe the results with Lincoln too. I think if health care goes down the toilet though, likely voters will decrease and the GOP will get momentum.

Horrible, horrible poll. How do you have races at 37-33? You're just going to leave all those undecideds out there? It's a third of the electorate in the PA race. Just awful.

Internet polls always show bad results for the party in power. I remember how many polls wanted to replace Bush at the beginning of 2004 and that never happened.

All isn't lost for the Dems if Obama can shape things up and pass at least some elements of a health reform package and call it a victory, and unemployment figures and people's moods are always the worst in Jan and Feb. I remember similar polls showing Democrats gaining control of the Senate back in early 2004 and that didn't happen. I predict it won't be a GOP sweep. Carnahan is a strong candidate vs a less charismatic washington person like Blunt and Paul Hodes in NH can beat Ayotte, because I know a little about that state and know Hodes has a good personality and both candidates are likeable, so it will be an interesting and hopefully honest campaign.

I don't think that YouGov is the same as ZogbyInteractive and all those other ridiculous internet pollsters. They're a bit more scientific and serious.

And I think they're sponsoring pollster.com
