The Scoreboard Heading Into 2010 and 2012

It's the end of the first quarter, and there's a lot of time left in the game. That's the sober truth for folks on both sides of the political aisle. 2010 is halftime -- though the score does count -- and in 2012, we crown a new champion.

Relishing their two gubernatorial victories, Republicans are feeling good about their chances in the second quarter, hoping for big gains at the half. Indeed, the stats from the first quarter suggest there's reason for Republicans to feel more hopeful than in contests past. Our must-read look at the political climate for 2010 breaks down the reasons why in great detail. In brief -- Democrats need to start putting more points on the board in terms of Obama's job approval, satisfaction with the way things are going in the country, Congress' job approval, party ID, and turnout.

Republicans, in the meantime, have every reason to keep their eyes on emerging victorious in 2012. Thursday morning, we're out with our most in-depth read yet of the potential Republican field for 2012. You can read the full story -- which Mike Huckabee fans will like -- at 5aET.
