the email address of every polling organization in the country shouldn't be that hard to find. have at it. write up one of those cry baby right wing chain emails and that should do the trick.
Like the Dems are doing so well.

LOL

taking lessons from the guy who picked Palin as his VP? the guy who hired a vote fraud specialist that still couldn't get him elected?

well, seeing as how Ted is no longer a failure virgin, a few more fails shouldn't bother him too much. he might even start to like it in a kinky sort of GOP way.

Thank God for teabaggers.
These idiots could have sat back and took potshots at Obamacare and magnified the normal start up bumps that everyone knew would come. But no, they chose to create a distraction by shutting down the government and trashing the economy.
I was worried that 2014 depended on the success of Obamacare, now Republicans are on their heels defending their moron teabaggers.

The problem wasn't that anything broke down, Bush nearly broke everything down but, look who saved the day. That's right Obama! Elected by America's republic to institute his philosophical ideology &, fix the mess Bush made. He most likely would've had that completely done by now, if it weren't for the republican oath to do anything to disrupt any progress made by the president. You' re represented by a party of spoiled brats! Because they couldn't produce a viable candidate to run for the presidency, their logic is fuck it up for the entire country. The president shouldn't have to compromise on the ACA, it's the law voted on by the people &, passed into law. The mere fact that the president is willing to negotiate on some provisions from the ACA, shows that it was the republicans all along, holding the country hostage in attempts to get what they want. That's not negotiating, that a ransom call. You can talk all that nonsense all you want. Obama did nothing Bush didn't do &, you all were quiet as a mouse while his mass corruption was taking place, right in y'all faces. A party of hypocrites, it figures!

When will Harry come out for air and realize there are no winners in this shutdown. Approval of Congressional Dems hovering at 30%-isn't winning.

Stop playing games Reid and start negotiating.

With Dem approval hoovering around 30% there are several vulnerable Dem Senator incumbents in danger.

The economy hasn't tanked yet. Teabaggers will either eat crow and surrender their dumbass position or take responsiblity for the ruined economy. They weren't smart enough to see it coming even though other Republicans like McCain tried to warn them.

Only if you want to claim 67% and rising, disapproval of Dems is a good thing.

Come on Sonic, you are not such a simpleton that you think using disapproval numbers rather approval numbers changes the equation.

So, a poll released yesterday had his approval at 37%.

You need to stop cherry picking polls.
