It has become very easy to find polls which show that whichever party you prefer now has the momentum going into this November’s elections. I tend to discount such polls as I don’t believe the vast majority of people (as opposed to blog readers) are even paying that much attention to politics yet or have made up their minds. That said, for those who are looking for good news for the Democrats, an Associated Press-GfK Poll shows that a majority want the Democrats to retain control of Congress by a 46 percent to 39 percent margin.
While I don’t believe such polls are terribly predictive, this does help counter the conventional wisdom of a Republican resurgence. This is the second straight month in which the Democrats win a majority compared to April when when 44 percent preferred Republican control as opposed to 41 percent for the Democrats.
