Here's how bad it's getting for Democrats in Washington. Not only are pollsters, pundits, and even the White House suggesting that Republicans will take control of the House, but now pollsters are suggesting a shift in who runs the Senate. [See who gives the most money to Congress.]

Public Opinion Strategies is out with a poll today that says that voters in 13 key battleground states seem to like Republicans more than Democrats, and it's possible that a wholesale GOP vote would give the Republicans a tie or near tie with the Democrats. Those states are Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Washington.

"The landscape that has tilted so dramatically toward Republicans in the House and is continuing to move in a dramatic way on the Senate side as well," said American Crossroads communications director Jonathan Collegio. The poll was commissioned by American Crossroads, a Republican-leaning group. "People often think that only House races can get swept up in an electoral wave, but this survey shows that Senate may very well get swept over in the same wave."
