Poll: Democrats More Moderate and Expected to Retain Congressional Control

Rasmussen Reports just released a new poll with beneficial findings for Democratic Congressional candidates and incumbents in 2008:

Sixty-five percent (65%) of Americans believe that Democrats are likely to retain their newly won control of Congress in Election 2008. Thirty-two percent (32%) consider ongoing Democratic control “very” likely. ...

A plurality (41%) views most Democrats in Congress as politically moderate. Thirty-five percent (35%) say most are politically liberal. On the other side of the aisle, 49% say that most Republicans in Congress are politically conservative while 32% see them as moderate.
Looks like good news for Democrats, especially those in left-leaning “moderate” states, like New Hampshire, Oregon, and Minnesota.
