Here’s an interesting observation.  In that poll three weeks ago, Survey USA questioned 561 likely voters.  The breakdown by party affiliation is 42% Republican, 47% Democrat and 10% Independent.  Click here to view the September 2, 2010 poll results.

In the latest poll, Survey USA questioned 611 likely voters.  The breakdown by party affiliation is 36% Republican, 51% Democrat and 12% Independent.  Click here to view the September 25, 2010 poll results.
