Ronald Brownstein: 2010 Elections Could Turn "Catastrophic" For Democrats

The polling gets worse and worse. The National Journal reviews some of the latest numbers and it's getting pretty dangerous out there for the Democrats because of the weak economy:

"That widening distress changes the political equation. A possible Republican surge next year in blue-collar "beer track" districts remains the biggest threat to the Democrats' House majority. The Democrats' vulnerability will deepen, however, if they cannot hold the line in "wine track" districts whose education levels exceed the national average. That's one way a difficult 2010 election for Democrats could turn catastrophic."

"Catastrophic" is a mighty strong wrong to describe a mid-term election.  But it may be accurate.  Be sure to read the whole thing.
