Remember the midterm elections of 1994? Think maybe change could be in the wind? http://news.newsmax.com/?ZKCRaYeV9i13fjP5zX1OxvW1z3lkxfU1Z Democratic senators and governors are trailing their Republican challengers in a number of states in prospective match-ups for the 2010 elections, Rasmussen Reports polls reveal. Even Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada is facing a tough re-election battle — he trails Sue Lowden, chairwoman of the Nevada Republican Party and the preferred candidate of the GOP, by 10 percentage points in a recent poll, 50 percent to 40 percent. Another GOP hopeful, former University of Nevada-Las Vegas basketball star Danny Tarkanian, also leads Reid, 50 percent to 43 percent. Other election battles that are shaping up as difficult for Democratic incumbents: In Connecticut, Republican challenger Rob Simmons, a former congressman, leads Sen. Christopher Dodd, 49 percent to 39 percent, while 5 percent say they'd prefer another candidate and 6 percent are not sure, Rasmussen found. Dodd is essentially even with three other possible Republican candidates. Sen. Michael Bennet of Colorado trails former Republican Lieut. Gov. Jane Norton, an announced candidate, by a margin of 45 percent to 36 percent. Republican challenger Chris Christie, a former prosecutor, leads New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine, 48 percent to 41 percent, in a recent Rasmussen survey, while independent candidate Chris Daggett gets 6 percent of the vote. In Iowa, Democratic Gov. Chet Culver trails Des Moines University President Terry Branstad, a former GOP governor of the state who is considering a run, by a huge margin of 54 percent to 34 percent. Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland narrowly trails Republican challenger John Kasich, a former congressman, 46 percent to 45 percent. In California, three-term Sen. Barbara Boxer leads former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, 49 percent to 39 percent, and state Assemblyman Chuck DeVore by a margin of 46 percent to 37 percent, but Rasmussen notes that "any incumbent who polls less than 50 percent is considered vulnerable."
