We've been waiting for Democrats to fight back with some polling that shows they might not be in such bad shape.

In Rep. Bobby Bright's (D-Ala.) district, we have such a poll.

The internal Bright campaign poll, conducted by Anzalone Liszt, shows Bright with 68 percent favorability, including 70 percent among Republicans. He leads a top NRCC recruit, Montgomery City Councilwoman Martha Roby, 54-30.

Bright has stood out among vulnerable Democrats in conservative districts in that he has voted against nearly all major contentious Democratic legislation. It appears that, at least in the South, that could be a recipe for success.

Of course, Republicans will do their best to tie Bright to the Democrats in Congress and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over the next eight months, but it doesn't appear their efforts so far have done much of anything, really.
