More bad news for Democratic congressional candidates

The polling shows that many voters subscribe to the "throw the bums out" theory as the midterm elections approach.

Which means they are looking to toss incumbents out. And since the Democrats hold the majority in the House of Representatives - that translates into Republican gains.

We've previously explored the issue of voters already being more likely to vote for Republican than Democratic candidates.

Now, another Gallup poll, shows that the expected voter turnout among young people, women and blacks in November will be low. These three groups traditionally support Democratic candidates.

It's not a good year to be a Democratic candidate for Congress at all!
