GOP Takes 10-point Lead on Generic Ballot

Gallup is reporting the first ever double-digit lead for Republicans on the generic ballot:
Republicans lead by 51% to 41% among registered voters in Gallup weekly tracking of 2010 congressional voting preferences. The 10-percentage-point lead is the GOP's largest so far this year and is its largest in Gallup's history of tracking the midterm generic ballot for Congress.
As the Instapundit would say: "don't get cocky." This is a strong lead, but a lot can happen between now and November. On the other hand, don't get complacent. Republican's like Ed Martin need canvasing and phone call support. Martin is running against Russ Carnahan (D-MO) in a D+7 district.
