Yes, Washington is tied again
Back when Democrat Patty Murray got several good polls all at once, taking nearly double digit leads over Republican Dino Rossi in the Washington Senate race, I didn’t think it was a fundamental shift of public opinion. I called it a “good week,” and when her leads dropped, I said the race was returning to a tie. The new Rasmussen suggests I was right and | Read More »
Johnson’s Believe It or Not
Wisconsin is traditionally the most Progressive state in America. Progressives win there. Progressives have long won there. Progressives have won there even in years when they lost in much of America. Wisconsin even went in for the La Follette-founded Progressive Party, making it a highly successful third party within the state for about a decade. So I’m just at a loss for words as to | Read More »

51 to Repeal: Elect a True Conservative in West Virginia
As a steadfast supporter of conservative candidates, you know what’s at stake in the West Virginia Senate race. Joe Manchin’s been knocked back on his heels by polls that show me beating him, most recently a Rasmussen poll on Tuesday showing me in the lead by 48% to 46%. So Manchin has taken to lying about his position about Obamacare. In March, he was West Virginia’s | Read More »
Do you want to beat Harry Reid?
Do you want to beat Harry Reid, and on top of that elect a true TEA party candidate to the United States Senate? We’re capable of doing that in Nevada. Sharron Angle has withstood so much pressure both before and after the primary, so many bad polls that have been underestimating her from day one, and she’s come out of it all keeping the race | Read More »
Kirk makes it three in a row
The Illinois Senate race keeps going back and forth. Republican Mark Kirk led a while, then Democrat Alexi Giannoulias took it back, but now having won three consecutive polls including PPP’s latest, it seems that Kirk is definitely on top again. It’s so close though that the polling of third party candidates is a serious issue. It may not matter in the end, though.
Raese now leads both West Virginia Polls
Some states get seven or eight polls of their Senate races. West Virginia has had two: Public Policy Polling and Rasmussen Reports. And honestly it seems that we were lucky to get PPP to jump in there. But now that Rasmussen’s latest is out, it’s official: Republican John Raese leads all the current polling over Democrat Joe Manchin.
Has Dan Maes been well and truly kneecapped?
Any political party must work as a team to win. While the primary process will become at times a competitive and even divisive, any inability to set those feelings aside and back the nominee will give the party trouble. A few Republicans this cycle know what kind of trouble that is, but none has more than Dan Maes against Democrat John Hickenlooper for Colorado Governor. | Read More »
State of (selected) races, 09/28/2010.
So, let’s see: Over at Cook Political Report, they’re reporting that another five races (MA-05, ME-02, MS-04, NY-22, & WA-09) have upgraded from Safe Democrat to Likely Democrat. This is consistent with trends against the Republican party in 2006 and 2008; what wrecked the GOP in those years was not that we had seats at-risk, but that we could not stop more and more seats | Read More »
Unlike 1994, They Saw This Year Coming
“When you are ten points down, you don’t take the A team off the field in the final quarter and replace them with the B team unless you know you are going to get clobbered anyway.” Last night on CNN, Gloria Borger pointed out that the Democrats tell anyone who will listen that they were prepared for this year. Unlike 1994, the Democrats say they | Read More »
On the USC/LA Times poll of California
This new poll of the California races by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner and American Viewpoint for USC and the LA Times has been discussed from one side of the Internet to the other, and back again. But I wouldn’t be doing my job if I let it go without chiming in, now would I? Of course not. So let’s dig in.

Is Jack Conway surging in Kentucky?
The last SurveyUSA poll of the Kentucky Senate race showed Republican Randal Paul running away with it from Democrat Jack Conway. However the new one tells a completely different story in its top line. When two polls by the same firm of the same race differ by that much, there has to be a story behind the story. Fortunately SurveyUSA’s detailed public reports make it | Read More »
Robin Carnahan “running an outdated 2006 campaign”
In the 2010 campaign for U.S. Senator from Missouri, it’s ironic that MO Sec’y of State Robin Carnahan would criticize Rep. Roy Blunt for connecting her to President Barack Obama, when she seems intent on connecting Blunt to a GOP congress that hasn’t existed for four years. This, in an election that has been identified by virtually every major media outlet as a “referendum on | Read More »
Terribly inconsistent polling in Florida
I am at a loss as to how to analyze the polling of the race for Governor in Florida. Of the last four polls at Real Clear Politics, Republican Rick Scott leads according to Rasmussen Reports and Ipsos for Reuters, while Democrat Alex Sink leads acccording to Mason Dixon and CNN/Time. Two polls concluded on the same day (Rasmussen and Mason Dixon) are not supposed | Read More »

Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D) Embraces the Race Card
That was like a double whammy race card. “Vote for me because I am Hispanic and I support immigration. P.S. My opponent is from Vietnam and he’s coming to take our jobs.” Her opponent? Van Tran. As luck would have it, Tran is trying to reach a fundraising goal of $8k by Sept 30th. [hint hint] For more information on this race check out Neil’s | Read More »
