Writing in the Wall Street Journal, pollster Scott Rasmussen has a reminder for all of those Republicans who think that tomorrow's election means that the American people have fallen in love with them and their party.

But none of this means that Republicans are winning. The reality is that voters in 2010 are doing the same thing they did in 2006 and 2008: They are voting against the party in power....
 ... This reflects a fundamental rejection of both political parties...More precisely, it is a rejection of a bipartisan political elite that's lost touch with the people they are supposed to serve.

In the coming weeks, we will see how this massive injection of new blood into the GOP works itself out.

Will they - can they - remain true to the voters who sent them to Washington?

This will be the fundamental question that will dominate Republican politics from now, into 2012, and beyond.
