Well, this is adding to a serious topic stray (as interesting as Al Franken is) but the reason that the Republicans won last time was because most people felt they didn't have a choice. It was either Bush or Bush Lite. Seeing as how roughly 70-75% of voting age population is registered to vote and that 60% of those people voted in the last national election, that means that most people (~55%) of voting age did not vote in this election (or any election). So it is quite wrong when people say that the majority of americans support the Republicans, especially because of their policies.
