With just one full day of campaigning to go, Republicans are seeing an upswing in the national polls, and a tightening of a couple of the Senate races that seemed lost just a few days ago. Democrat Rahm Emanuel is quoted in the New York Times as saying the upswing is making him nervous. Emanuel is also quoted in the Washington Post as saying he "doesn't know what to make of it." A Pew Research Poll shows the Democratic advantage slipping to 47 percent to 43 percent. That's down from 51 percent to 44 percent just a couple of weeks ago.
Dick Morris is now predicting Republicans won't face the disaster that has been predicted. Morris says the polls are all showing a GOP tilt, and that the Saddam verdict will end up helping the party. Some of the other recent polls seem to suggest that the idiotic comments last week by John Kerry have hurt democrats more than first thought.
