Alito polling worse than Miers
This is good news - only 38% of Americans want the Senate to confirm Alito, compared to 41% who wanted confirmation of Harriet Miers.
Now we just have to convince the Democratic Party. They seem to have gotten the strange idea that doing what the majority of the public wants them to do somehow equals political suicide.
And, we have to keep in mind that these numbers aren't written in stone - they can and probably will change, and the GOP certainly isn't going to sit on their hands and leave things up to fate. They will spend a lot of time and money trying to convince people that Alito is the greatest thing since sliced bread, and unless we fight back just as hard, they will succeed.
