GOP electoral train wreck forthcoming?

Bad news for Republicans keeps rolling in... A new NBC/WSJ poll gives Congress just a 16% approval rating, and respondents favored Dems to the GOP by a 52% to 37% margin. Mike Allen over at Time writes that GOP insiders hope to keep control of the Senate, but "Republican officials now concede they could lose a net of 23 to 27 seats in the House." Allen says that the Senate may hinge upon incumbent George Allen winning in Virginia. Apparently if Allen holds, and Sen. Mike DeWine squeaks out a win in Ohio and/or Tom Kean Jr. scores an upset over Sen. Robert Menendez in New Jersey, then the GOP should retain control of the chamber.

Not that Nancy Pelosi cares what goes on in the Senate. She's too busy telling her troops to keep their mouths shut while she measures the Speaker's office for drapes.
