CNN poll shows huge gains for Democrats

A new poll just revealed by CNN indicates that Republicans will have an uphill battle ahead of them in the 29 days before the midterm elections.

With 52% indicating they believe there was a deliberate cover-up of the Foley affair and an equal number reporting they believe Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert (R-IL) should resign, more Democrats are indicating that they are enthusiastic about voting than Republicans.

Most astonishing, however, is that while 58% of Democrats consider themselves likely to vote, just 44% of Republicans see themselves heading to the polls this November.

In all, the news agency is reporting that the Democratic lead among likely voters has nearly doubled--from 11 to 21 points in the last week.
