WASHINGTON (CNN) - The Republican party may face tough times at the polls come November, according to results of a new national survey.
A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation Survey out Friday indicates that 2008 may not be a good year for Republicans up and down the ticket, even though most national surveys indicate the race for the White House between Sens. John McCain and Barack Obama is quite close right now.

Sixty-three percent of Democrats questioned say they are either extremely or very enthusiastic about voting this year. Only 37 percent of Republicans feel the same way, with 36 percent of Republicans saying they are not enthusiastic about voting.
At one time I thought it would be good to be republican.
– Fiscally responsible
– Core Family Values
But I have seen those characteristics since the current administration took office
It's hard to be enthusiastic about a party and administration that has taken us to an unecessary war, caused an economic recession that is worsening daily, takes care of the rich and forgets the poor, and watches while gas has gone to $4.69/gallon here in my city.
TIME FOR CHANGE!
I guess they are all busy re-incarnating themselves as "libertarians"
where have all the good republicans gone? are they extinct?
PS I didn't know Longfellow was a Democrat. Those elitist poets !!
Mike Huckabee may be joining fox news as a commentator but if John McCain picks him as a VP I would never vote for McCain and McCain would be sure to lose. Obama all the way.
John McCain '08!
The Repubs have nothing to run on. All the represent is war and hate.
all you TRUE american republicans need to go with the dems this election, cuz your true republican party will become extinct if we have another neocon in office.
NO MORE NEOCONS!!!!
conservatives are not neccessarily stupid, but stupid people vote for these NEOCONS!!! a vote for a neocon is AGAINST your own best interests, not to mention your family, this country, the world!!!
I agree. I can't stand Huckabee. He got less votes than Romney and McCain.
Goldie, you wanna place a bet? :-)
