Some loyal Republicans hoping for a Kerry win?
This is really interesting. Robert Novack has a piece today about disaffected Republicans. He cites five reasons for this, which are worth reading. But then comes the real stunner:
The disaffection is such that over the last two weeks, normally loyal Republicans -- actually including more than a few members of Congress -- are privately talking about political merits in the election of Sen. Kerry. Their reasoning goes like this: There is no way Democrats can win the House or Senate even if Bush loses. If Bush is re-elected, Democrats are likely to win both the House and Senate in a 2006 midterm rebound. If Kerry wins, Republicans will be able to bounce back with congressional gains in 2006.
I can't see it getting much better than this.
