    on the republican side, once primary adds like the video above go up by Palin and Huckabee and the teabaggers learn that he once supported pro choice positions, he's toast.  The only reason why the GOP as new life is because the economy is so bad.  It's not bad becuase of policy but because it was so f'd up by Bush that no one even realized how f'd up it was and it's going to take a loooonnnng time to recover no matter what polices are put in place...period.  There are things to help which have and will be done to stim off further erosion, but there is just no silver bullet. Many voters don;t quite see that so they are scared and are ready to just throw dems out, even though the repubs are guaranteed to be 1000 times worse.
