Incumbents, Republicans in trouble

So says a Saint Cloud State opinion poll.

It's not really surprising that the public is turning against incumbents and Republicans. Republicans control the governor's office and the state House, and the past few years haven't been happy times for the state. Lots of people think that education is not getting the attention it deserves, and people trust Democrats more than Republicans when it comes to education.

Of course, Republicans are going to try to spin this as not being a big deal. However, the national Republican party isn't going to be very helpful come 2006. It's too early to make strong predictions, but the trends are favorable for Democrats in the next election.
