GOP opens biggest lead in Zogby poll

Republicans have opened up a nine point generic ballot lead in the latest Zogby poll, considered by many to be a Democrat-leaning survey. Tied at 45 percent on Monday, the rapidly-growing nine point lead is the largest measured this year and indicates the Democrat "enthusiasm gap" is growing worse.

Not only do Republicans lead among independent voters by a crushing eighteen point margin, 49 percent to 31 percent, but approval of Obama's job performance among Democrats has plunged nine points this week, from 88 percent to 79 percent, and the percentage of Democrats who plan to support their party's candidate for Congress fell eight points, from 88 percent to 80 percent.

Keep in mind, however, polls are simply a snapshot of public opinion at that time, and with 18 days to go anything can happen.
