    another couple weeks of screaming about this and then do the poll again.  If the Democrats are still up this time next month, then I'll believe it.

    I take this like I took the news about the sequester not hurting the economy as badly as everyone feared because the unemployment filings still went down for the first few weeks of the sequester where the Village expected them to immediately go up.  Last week they did bounce up and I think that's due to businesses finally scaling back workers because it's obvious the sequester is here to stay.  I think the Democratic poll numbers, and President Obama, will take hits from these "scandals" because it's being played on national news, cable news and local news as being a big deal.  There's very little pushback from Democrats or media, and people will overcome their being sick and tired of the Republicans and start thinking this is pretty bad.  Not enough to crater his Presidency, but enough that I think Republicans will benefit from all this.

    I would love to be proven wrong, and I'll check back with you in June.
