Who's in the House?

I'll try anything.

According to The American National Election Studies, only 28% of the electorate correctly indentified the Republicans as controlling the House of Representatives in 2002. Even in more typical years, around half of the electorate doesn't answer the question correctly.

Chris at MyDD is pitching the idea of making this THE talking point of the election messaging, ad nauseum. "Do you disapprove of the way the congress is doing its job? Republicans control congress."

I'd certainly prefer to win the contest of ideas. but first we have to clear the hurdle of basic identification. In a period where we control neither the executive or legislative branch, we ought not to get between voters and the full and ample expression of their displeasure.
