New York Senate Bombshell: Gillibrand up…1 point says SurveyUSA
Uhoh. If this ain’t a mayday for the Democrats I can’t imagine what is. If this verifies, the Senate could be as good as gone for the Democrats as well. This same poll shows Cuomo up 49-40 against Paladino. The Big Red Wave is starting to sweep over the Empire State. Sure, this might seem like a short diary, if it be even a classified | Read More »
Rust and Coal Belt Implosions, Obama healthcare lamentings
Everyone has been seeing the implosion across Pennsylvania, Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Missouri, Illinois, Michigan, and now West Virginia seems to be joining the crowd. Malkin drops a bomb with one of the many reasons aside from Cap and Trade. Recent polling of these states indicate a potential wipeout that you see maybe once in a century. It would be useless to link everything but there | Read More »
Huh? In a pout over the DREAM Act not passing today, Obama says “Mexicans were here first before Americans”
(H/T Gateway Pundit) Unbelievable. Talk about a ready made ad for the GOP presidential nominee for 2012. It’s funny how the MSM has been trumpeting the failure of getting closure on the defense authorization bill as “GOP blocks Don’t Ask Don’t Tell Repeal” Just look at Politico, CNN, the Associated Press, etc. They are all saying the same thing but we all knew what this | Read More »
(UPDATE: Maine Senators being targeted) Obama and Reid’s last gasp (DREAM Act) to create a future voter bloc prior to November. Blow up the phones tonight and tomorrow.
This article by Politico sums it up. The Dems need this for the midterm elections badly. Call all your GOP Senators, particulary in Maine, to vote no on this. Malkin has all of the Senators numbers in regards to this. With Democrats polling plummeting everywhere and today’s Rasmussen generic polling showing R+10 six weeks out before the election night of November 2nd, the Obamabots as | Read More »
The state of the election picture for the Senate
Well, it looks as the primary dust has settled and it is very apparent that the GOP establishment has lost their ability to be the kingmakers and the people have taken back their rightful power….for the time being. First things first. Of course, the Delaware Senate race. The voters of Delaware made the right choice and already it is reaping some huge national strategic advantages | Read More »
“Bail us out!!” Obama and Reid’s attempt to create voters before November. Pass the DREAM (Amnesty) Act that Reid attached to the Defense appropriations bill.
“Attention GOP Senators. Shopping one Senator because our losses in November have no end in sight. Help us out.” Stand strong 41. Stand strong. The GOP Senate has already filabustered this once. Boy, the Democrats’ polling judging by the last 24 hours is in a freefall nose dive. I am assuming that the Democrats have been seeing the internal polling as well so Obama and | Read More »
Hey GOP establishment, can you hear us now? The People determine the candidates, not YOU.
Lisa Murkowski, Bob Bennett, Mike Castle. Sure the GOP establishment liked Jane Norton and she is a class act for fully supporting Ken Buck. However, it is apparent that Sarah Palin, Jim DeMint, Michelle Bachmann, and the powerful Tea Party organization have wrested control from the GOP establishment. Though I have problems with Christine O’Donnell’s past, I like what she stands for and congratulate her | Read More »
A hill to die on. What do you stand for?
On the eve of a very hotly contested DE Senate GOP primary between Mike Castle and Christine O’Donnell, I have begun to see some things that the GOP is falling right back into the very same power trap that they fell into over the last decade. John Boehner apparently hinting that he would vote for Obama’s stimulus bill if he gets tax cuts? Some people | Read More »
1994 Explanation Redux: The MSM begins to make excuses for impending butt-kicking of Democrats in November: “Democrats didn’t vote!”
Oh no. We cannot afford to have the narrative be “The American people reject liberalism, socialism/Marxism, big government spending Democrats like President Obama.” We will spin it as “Democrats didn’t vote!” What a load of….well, I have to keep it clean. We saw the same exact thing in 1994 though it happened after the election because the Democrats didn’t see it coming. This time they | Read More »
(Updated) Project 143 — Targeted House races and the GOP candidates w/websites
Updated: Thanks to IJB for the input. Putting two seats, CA-51 and WA-9 in as well. They are doable but the climb looks to be higher for those candidates. Still, they shouldn’t be overlooked. (H/T Ace of Spades HQ) Here is a great interactive website by 40seats.com where they highlight 80-90 Democratic House incumbents. Check it out! Note: I having used USElections to get the | Read More »
Earthquake in the Pacific Northwest. Dino Rossi up by 7 over Patty Murray in just-released SurveyUSA poll
(H/T Hedgehog Report) This one has got to STING! The Republics can be practically assured of taking over the Senate if Murray is ousted. SurveyUSA is normally very accurate in their polling. It is very interesting the heavy movement that has swung toward the GOP starting about 3-4 weeks ago. It has really begun to accelerate with the Obama Ground Zero Mosque debacle and another | Read More »
Democrat Dirty Tricks: Beware of Tea Party candidates running as a 3rd party after the GOP primaries have been decided
saw this first with in the NV Senate race with Harry Reid. Remember Scott Ashjian? Ace gives us the heads up. It should be pointed out the turnout margins in the primaries in Michigan, Missouri in Tennessee the last two nights. The GOP voters are outnumbering the Democrat voters by over 2 to 1(!!!!) in turn out. Michael Barone highlighted the huge, flashing “WARNING” sign | Read More »
Cinderella Man: James Lankford (OK-5) and the GOP primary upset of the year
Incredible. With Kevin Calvey having practically every big name endorsement in his pocket, this is a true David vs. Goliath victory. Lankford does have the backing of Mike Huckabee and J.C. Watts but still winning against such odds was very impressive. A director of the Christian retreat Falls Creek with an oak bass voice and a political newcomer, he was very impressive in the final | Read More »
Breaking: Charlie Rangel cuts a deal?
Fox News is reporting this probably alluding to local WCBS reports. If Charlie Rangel keeps his seat, I can only imagine the party the GOP is going to have with this. To say this will not look good for Pelosi and Democrats in the House is an understatement. Combine this with Obamacare passing, exploding deficits, and U.S. District judge Susan Bolton’s decision to stay parts | Read More »
What you can do to take out Harry Reid in November. It begins now
Harry Reid has now gained a 2 point lead, 45-43, according to the latest poll out of Rasmussen that was released today. I mentioned in my last post that Reid desperately needed to be ahead of Angle by a reasonable cushion by the time Labor Day arrived. There is no question that the barrage of 24/7 advertising that Reid has engaged in since the middle | Read More »
(UPDATED:) Well done Sharron Angle campaign. Reporters desperately trying to trip Angle to help Reid.
UPDATE: (H/T Hedgehog Report) — Sharron Angle sat down with the Las Vegas Review Journal board of editors to take a wide range of questions. The clip of the Q&A session is unedited and is over 1 hour long but well worth it. After watching the interview it just reinforced my belief that she is a very formidable candidate. Experienced and seasoned in legislative law | Read More »
You have got to be KIDDING ME!! RNC Treasurer accuses RNC leadership of hiding debt
Great job Michael Steele!! Please tender your resignation ASAP and that means NOW!! At first thought, I thought I would just “Meh” this type of news but it’s the RNC action of hiring a high priced lawyer with FEC experience that tells me this thing has legs and is far more serious. (H/T Hot Air) How serious is the problem? The RNC quickly retained former | Read More »
House target race update
Update: WIth today’s poll in IL-17 showing Schilling up by 13 over the Democratic incumbent Phil Hare, it could be argued that there may be some other Democratic seats not listed here that could be on the radar now as well. Before I get into this, I should let you know what the fonts mean. These are all based on current trends. Boldface means that | Read More »
The state of the key Senate races
I can’t wait until the rest of the primary battles finish and we can get onto the real contests that will determine control of congress. If you would have told me that the GOP has a decent shot at regaining control of the Senate two months ago I would have thought you were nuts. However, that is no longer the case and you can count | Read More »
All hands on the phones — Reid to push cap and trade to the floor
Uh oh. Here goes the next Democrat expansion of government. If you thought your health insurance bills were going to be bad, wait until you see your electric and gas bills. With the appointment of Carte Goodwin to replace the late Robert Byrd, Harry Reid is going into big hurry mode. After passing legislation to extend unemployment benefits (Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe will allow | Read More »
