Cat 4 Blows Dem House Away. Barney Too?

Huffpo is apoplectic:) Even in Hyannis? Not Barney too? Loaning himself $200,000? Noooo...

The GOP's Bielat is still behind, but with this gale blowing, anything goes. New WSJ/NBC poll:
But in the 92 House districts considered most competitive, the GOP's lead among registered voters is 14 points, underscoring the Democrats' challenge in maintaining their hold on the House. The poll of 1,000 registered voters was taken Oct. 14-18.

"It's hard to say Democrats are facing anything less than a category four hurricane," said Peter Hart, the Democratic pollster who conducts the Journal poll with Republican pollster Bill McInturff. "And it's unlikely the Democratic House will be left standing." [snip]

The Republican edge in intensity of support, after falling from a 19-point lead in August to a 14-point lead in September, is now at 20 percentage points.

"After seven weeks of a powerful counteroffensive, the dynamics haven't changed," Mr. McInturff said of Democratic efforts to diminish GOP momentum.

Maybe Barney should send out another Perils of Pauline fundraising letter. And ask his significant other to keep mum.

It's about time.

Let's make it Cat 5.

More. Jeff Jacoby: Fannie, Freddie, Frank, and fiction.
