    The poll was actually from a piece by James Carville and Stan Greenberg’s Democracy Corps titled ”The Revolt Against Washington and the Republican Congress.” Writer Kevin Drum looked past the title to discover that Democrat approval isn’t faring too well, either:

    In Democratic districts, net incumbent approval has plummeted by 11 points, from +8 approval to +3 disapproval. In Republican districts, incumbent approval has gone down only 4 points. You see the same results when they ask a question about warmth of feeling toward incumbents: It’s down 7 points in Republican districts and 9 points in Democratic districts.

    This isn’t good news for Democrats. It’s true that attitudes toward the Republican Party have taken a bigger hit than attitudes toward the Democratic Party, but attitudes toward actual incumbents are exactly the opposite. And in elections, that’s what matters.
