a (very) good week’s work

Pollster John Zogby, September 24:

“For the Democrats, it’s looking again like summer’s end may bring a breath of fresh air. Poll numbers are moving up for Obama and the Democrats. Our latest Congressional generic found the Dems up by 1 percent, and other pollsters are also showing improvements for Obama’s party. Our latest presidential job approval of 49 percent is Obama’s highest since February. Taking the offensive against the Republicans is paying off, especially with the Democratic base. We’ll see how the Democrats play their advantage on legislation that extends middle class tax cuts and ends the unpopular cuts on income over $250,000. The Senate vote on “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” failed to get the 60 votes needed to move forward, but Democrats may get credit from gay rights supporters for having tried. There are five weeks ahead before the midterm elections, and this past week was a good one for Obama and the Democrats.”

      Hi Linda, what a wonderful idea! If there’s anything at all that I can do to help please let me know and it’s certainly no problem linking you up with people here who want to get involved. If you would like me to advertise the idea through a separate post (a sticky) let me know too. Keep on guarding the change!

    However, if there is anything you think I could help with despite being many miles away I would really like to do my part.

    You guys are great.
