    Holy crap, guess the republican folks are very upset about the Hastert thing... I thought the damage was bad, but had no idea of how bad it is for them.

    The data suggests Americans have bailed on the speaker," a Republican source briefed on the polling data told FOX News. "And the difference could be between a 20-seat loss and 50-seat loss."

    Most GOP lawmakers have stood by Hastert, pending a full airing of the facts in his handling of the Mark Foley affair, in which the former Florida representative was caught exchanging salacious messages with teen pages in Congress. The new polling data, however, suggests that many voters already have made up their minds.

    The GOP source told FOX News that the internal data had not been widely shared among Republican leaders, but as awareness of it spreads calculations about Hastert's tenure may change. The source described the pollster who did the survey as "authoritative," and said once the numbers are presented, it "could change the focus" on whether the speaker remains in power.

    While internal GOP polls show trouble for Republicans, the newest AP/Ipsos poll also showed that half of likely voters say the Foley scandal will be "very or extremely important" when it comes time to vote on Nov. 7. By nearly a 2-1 ratio, voters say Democrats are better at combating corruption.

    Beware the bakclash of this turns out to be a dirty trick to smear Hastert: from the drudge report:


    This stuff ended up in the hands of the Sorso funded group CREW and Mike Rogers, Rodgers had contact with the DCCC. What did the dems know and when did they know it. Hastert apparently didn't know about the IM's with Edmund.

    It's a prank now? I thought it was alcoholism? Oh wait, it was that Foley was abused by a clergyman? Or wait, I thought it was, as some Republicans claim, a known problem that was reported to senior Republicans. The party of personal responsibility and accountability. LOL. Patsfan13, your true colors are showing. You're just not able to take responsibility for enabling a Republican Party that has become corrupt. Why don't you try some of your Al Qaeda documents. Maybe you can find something there you can use. LOL.

    Saw this, but Drudge is the only one reporting this right now.. not even a sniff on other sites... what comes to mind if Foley was set up, why did he resign so quickly and not fight it?? I am sure the Republicans would like to have played the victimization card.. you know how bad those democrats are.

    I check Drudge several times daily, but like many other sites this stuff often disappears into oblivion..

    The "Bloggers" will find the Democrats that sat on this waiting to drop the bomb, the democrats don't care about the children, the democrats care about "HAVING THE POWER".

    If the republicans knew-----The democrats knew--------You Know it-------We all know it.

    THYE BACKLASH WILL COME.
