If Democrats are doomed in November, why is it Republicans who are freaking out?: "Before and after health care reform became law late last month, it was widely predicted that Democrats would pay dearly for the bill's supposed extremism. 'They put red bandanas on their head, took a drink of sake, and went out on what I believe will be a kamikaze mission,' said Sen. Kit Bond, R-Mo., on March 22. Not all Democrats disagreed. As recently as April 16, Democratic pollsters Douglas Schoen and Patrick H. Caddell confidently pronounced health reform 'an incontrovertible disaster' leaving Republicans 'ripe to pick up major gains in both chambers this November.' And just last week conservatives turned cartwheels when a poll released by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press found the public's trust in government to be at its lowest point in half a century.
