CQ: "Is this an anti-incumbent year? Not so far"

CQ looks at the 2010 cycle and states the obvious: it's not anti-incumbency which is fueling election results.

Countless stories and hours of cable television have been filled with analysis describing this year's elections as tantamount to an anti-incumbent wave.

But as the primaries come to a close, it's clear that instead of throwing the bums out, voters have let the vast majority of incumbents move on to the general election.

"Most of the anger is driven at Democrats because they're in power," he added. "Some is driven at Republicans when voters conclude that a particular candidate is too close to Democrats."

The Texas media largely still is getting this wrong.
