Just another example of bias in the media with this poll:

In an ominous election-year sign for Republicans, Americans are leaning sharply toward wanting Democrats to take control of Congress, an AP-Ipsos poll finds. Democrats are favored 49 percent to 36 percent.

The poll was taken this week as Republican lobbyist Jack Abramoff pleaded guilty to tax evasion, fraud and corruption charges and agreed to aid a federal investigation of members of Congress and other government officials.

President Bush’s job approval remains low ? 40 percent in the AP-Ipsos poll. About as many approve of his handling of?Iraq, where violence against Iraqis and U.S. troops has been surging.

Only trouble being they over-sampled Democrats once again, by 12%:

This is now just common practice with these polls since they know the headline they can get with this kind of stuff.? But hey, there is no bias here……laugh.

Can you remember a poll in the last decade where they showed the Republican’s up???But?every time we still continue to gain seats and win.??
