Stop cheering the bad news for Bush!

Results from a new CBS Poll:


Yes

No

DOES BUSH SHARE YOUR PRIORITIES FOR THE COUNTRY?

34% (49%)

61% (48%)

DOES CONGRESS SHARE YOUR PRIORITIES FOR THE COUNTRY?

20.00%

68.00%

They need to ask two additional questions:

Does the Republican party share your priorities for this country?

Does the Democratic party share your priorities for this country?

The Congressional numbers don't necessarily indicate that Republicans will lose to Democrats next year. That will only happen if the voters think the Democrats are closer to their priorities. But if this is simply a "pox on both your houses" situation than the most likely result in 2006 will be record low turnout. And as everyone knows, low turnout tends to favor Republicans.

Democrats need to stop crowing less about how bad the Republicans are doing and start thinking hard about how to convince the public that Democrats would be better.
