-- out that some nervous Democrats are reportedly launching a new strategy for the November mid term elections.
Apparently the -- gotten the message from voters in Virginia and New Jersey and Massachusetts we're learning that deficit commission fourteen.
In the last three months of 2009 to find out how they're doing in their home districts.
In fourteen of the most valuable states.
Vulnerable I -- fortune most vulnerable states for the party so how would they sign of the Davos polling.
And how well it helped to shape the message as we head into November -- now's Washington.
Here host Charlie hurt he -- couldn't CF OK mark.
And it's it is in his early to be polling and this you know it obviously that's a tough road had is that strange.
Oh my goodness it's it's.
It's way early usually pollsters wait until the beginning of the of the new year you traditionally.
After the previous years elections.
You have kind of few months of staging getting ready to sort of launched campaigns and then you start launching campaigns along about January or February.
What we're seeing is that that these very nervous nervous Democrats all across the country in the bluest of states.
Our commissioning polls.
In the final quarter of last year.
Which you know we all knew this was going to be a tough year for parents and I think they all knew it.
But I think it's also it's turning out to be a lot tougher than that than anybody expected.
Yet it just as Chris van Holland -- chair is said he knew that this is going to be a -- 2010 going to be a very tough year.
After these Democrats take a look at that some of the people that we're talking about here we can -- with a full screen with a number their pictures on it.
There's Alan Grayson in the corner I think he was so when he said Republicans might -- -- quickly member that back on the that bush.
-- blurred out of a lot of attention this year cosmos -- -- out.
McMahon -- all in some very tough races there off freshman this is their first year out and they're gonna have to battle to -- let's take a look at the sophomores.
Represented as Michael Curry -- Foster Rodriguez taught -- a little bit about what they might be looking for in terms of message because we all know what kind of message.
Has been working for Republican candidates in Virginia and New Jersey Massachusetts had.
I think -- needed them the most troubling thing for democratic leaders in the house's.
That they're -- they're really asking a lot of questions about health care and and how damaging -- this health care debate has been for them.
And what they're finding out is that it who's been it's been very damaging.
It may not have been the single thing that put Scott Brown over in Massachusetts.
But but it's it's one of those -- Huge background noise.
Elements that has been crucial to took to what you know to to to the prop up the Democrats face right now.
And and and if they come back to the house and with that message.
Fifty -- you can take all the poll vaults all the parachutes she wants to to get over that while she's not gonna get -- that she's not gonna get any path.
-- -- seems to me that they're going to be looking and they have to court independent vote because that's that when you look at all the polls have been done over the past year that's the group that has swayed.
As he usually does that you know back and forth between the two parties.
And spending government spending and we just -- -- it you know mentioned this astounding they may just raise the debt ceiling and that they're gonna hit it.
It in the same month that they raised it and so do Democrats collapses and talk to their constituents about what they're gonna do to try to cut spending in Washington I'm in it -- to me that would be the most coherent message.
-- and and it's the perfect message for independents because you know independence it.
Who are people who don't get into all the partisan squabbling.
They're horrified by the spending their horrified by the just basic decisions to get made in Washington that they could never get away with making around their kitchen table.
And and and it's these depend independents.
Who put so many especially the freshman.
Members of congress put them in office on the coattails of President Obama because they went for Obama so huge.
It's it's those independents.
Who are fleeing in droves and and we're seeing what was something we haven't seen in many many years which is -- these independents are are are coming very strong.
Republicans and that that really -- that's something that that Republicans have enjoyed for a number of.
-- is a lot of work to be done and little less than ten months out now -- -- see a lot of back and forth and that time Charlie -- always good to see thanks a lot.
Thank you the right.
