A new AP-AOL News poll shows a 19-point spread favoring Democrats in the mid-term elections that loom less than two weeks away. According to the poll, the middle class is fleeing the Republican party it sees as out of touch on domestic issues and overreaching on foreign policy.
Asked about the sour mood, Republican Speaker of the House (and the center of the Mark Foley investigation), Denny Hastert said, "Things are looking pretty good, and I don't think anybody would really want to change that at this time."
Jopining Hastert in blissful denial is President Bush who said, "November 7th is going to be a good day for the Republicans."
Nope, nobody out of touch here.
