“This administration is populated by people who’ve spent their careers bashing government. They’re not just small-government conservatives—they’re Grover Norquist, strangle-it-in-the-bathtub conservatives. It’s a cognitive disconnect for them to be able to do something well in an arena that they have so derided and reviled all these years.”

CNN Exit polling

No TIVO, so from memory - 42% of those polled said corruption is an important issue to them. I would think that would make Democrats excited and Republicans hang their head.
40% Terrorism, 39% economy, 37 % Iraq.

Those polled thought that either Dems or Republicans could handle the terrorism. So there's no solace there for the right. And those polled claim that they want to leave Iraq, a position favored by about 56% of voters. Another good Democratic sign.

National issues favor local issues 2-1. If this election were more local, the story went, it would be bad for Democrats. These numbers, therefore, are huge for Dems.

Hopefully these numbers translate to big wins for Democrats. But I'll feel much better when results come in.

And if you haven't already voted, you should. It's your chance to be a part of history.
