Freaking Out At The RNC

This poll from WSJ/Zogby has gotta be causing major headaches (and worse) for Republican leaders.

First the caveats -- it's an online poll; it is late August; and the numbers are out of line (but not completely) with most publicly released polls.

But a Democratic lead in Virginia Senate race? Republican leads in Nevada and Arizona Senate races that are right at the margin of error? Pretty solid Democratic Senate leads in Washington, Michigan, Maryland and Pennsylvania? Bad news too for the GOP in the Governors races in Nevada, Colorado, Iowa, Michigan and Maryland.

I don't really believe these numbers, but I do think that the GOP has its work cut out for them over the next two months. Expect things to get nasty and soon.
