And the hits just keep on coming for Dems.

Two-term Democratic Sen. Evan Bayh is looking vulnerable in Indiana where he is polling under 50 percent when matched against three possible Republican challengers, according to a Rasmussen Reports poll conducted Jan. 21 and 24.

Marion Berry, a Democratic representative from Arkansas, said he will retire after seven terms, making him the 12 Democrat leaving a seat open this November, Politico reports. John McCain won Berry's district in the 2008 presidential election, an indication that Republicans will have a strong shot at filling the spot.

And Beau Biden is NOT running for his father's old senator seat in Delaware.


A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Monday also indicates that 7 in 10 Americans believe that the Democrats' loss of their 60 seat supermajority in the Senate is a positive move for the country.

Forty-five percent of people questioned in the poll said Democratic control of Congress is a good thing, with 48 percent disagreeing. The margin is within the survey's sampling error. But the results are a shift from last June, when 50 percent felt that Democratic control of both chambers of Congress was good and 41 percent felt it was bad for the country.
