It’s obvious that the Dems are going to take a beating this November, so their friends in the MSM are trying hard to spin this election cycle as “anti-incumbent.” It’s pure BS. As Stuart Rothenberg puts it:
So far this year, 98 percent of Congressional incumbents seeking re-election have been renominated.
What does Rothenberg expect to see in November?
Angry voters will turn out to vote against the party in charge. And that’s why, ultimately, 2010 will be remembered as a Republican wave election, not an anti-incumbent year.
Gallup confirms that Republicans are ready to rumble:
An average of 59% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents have said they are more enthusiastic than usual about voting this year compared with past elections, the highest average Gallup has found in a midterm election year for either party since the question was first asked in 1994.
In other words. If you’re a Democrat member of Congress and voted for Obamacare or any other irresponsible big-government program (like this breathtaking example of waste and hubris), your job is in danger.
This year’s major dynamic isn’t an anti-incumbent mood among the voters. It is an anti-Democrat mood. Republicans and lots of independents are very angry, and the day of reckoning is drawing nigh.
