The Majority of Americans Prefer Democrats?

This would be more believable:

More than half of Americans, 55 percent, would like to see Democrats take control of Congress, according to a poll by Newsweek magazine released on Saturday.

The poll of 1,000 likely voters found that 55 percent would choose a Democrat to represent their district if the vote were held now, and 37 percent said they would vote Republican.

Without the last paragraph:
Of those sampled, 282 identified themselves as Republicans, 349 as Democrats and 330 as Independents.
You over sample Democrats and you expect me to buy the results. Sorry, I might be Christian and conservative but I'm not stupid (though you love to paint us that way). And let's not forget that no national poll can tell us anything about local races. This poll is worthless but that won't stop a talking head or a blogger from using it to prove their point that the Democrats are headed for a victory this November.
