New polls good news for Dems

A new AP poll released shows that more Americans prefer Democrats over Republicans in terms of who should control Congress following this November's midterm elections.

Yet another poll shows that Americans want to allow the health reforms passed earlier this year to take effect rather than have it repealed altogether, an idea Congressional Republicans have been promoting since its passage this spring.

Most Americans still are upset with incumbents: only about a third would even return their own member of Congress to Washington.

But the shift in party preferences shows that Americans still reject the policies of hard-right conservatism. They may not always agree 100 percent with what the Democrats have to offer, but they still prefer a slight move to the left rather than the hard-right turn that the GOP is offering them.

Yet another sign of a voting public that rejects the party of "no."
