I see from yesterday's International Herald Tribune (London) that Republicans and Congress as a whole are losing support in an opinion poll run by the Washington Post. Although the changes were modest they were across a series of questions.

It sounds as if the Conservative Right has become more entrenched, but are losing middle ground. I was interested that Clinton felt able to come out to condemn the fatal assault on the gay student in Wyoming. The tone of response to an incident like this may be more important than single decisions by any politician.
