"...rejection of a bipartisan political elite that's lost touch with the people..."

Key advice for Republicans from Scott Rasmussen:
...None of this means that Republicans are winning. The reality is that voters in 2010 are doing the same thing they did in 2006 and 2008: They are voting against the party in power...it is a rejection of a bipartisan political elite that's lost touch with the people they are supposed to serve. Based on our polling, 51% now see Democrats as the party of big government and nearly as many see Republicans as the party of big business. That leaves no party left to represent the American people.


Voters today want hope and change every bit as much as in 2008. But most have come to recognize that if we have to rely on politicians for the change, there is no hope. At the same time, Americans instinctively understand that if we can unleash the collective wisdom and entrepreneurial spirit of the American people, there are no limits to what we can accomplish.


In this environment, it would be wise for all Republicans to remember that their team didn't win, the other team lost. Heading into 2012, voters will remain ready to vote against the party in power unless they are given a reason not to do so.
It isn't just the wise thing to do - it's the essential thing to do. It is clear that the economic policies of the political class cannot be sustained, and it is clear that the American people now recognize that. The Democrats may or may not win the elections of 2012, but if the Republicans think that they're going to continue playing politics as usual for the next two years, they're definitely going to lose...

Good piece, read it all.
