David Brooks Gets Played
It is a familiar tactic that the Democrats have used lately — say it enough times and hope someone believes it. I was traveling yesterday and couldn’t comment on the David Brooks column, but it is more and more clear David Brooks got played. The Senate majority leader, Harry Reid, has talked about supporting a debt reduction measure of $3 trillion or even $4 trillion | Read More »
O’Donnell, Coons and the Courts
When it comes to the most important qualities we look for in a senator—good ideas, leadership ability, intelligence, articulateness, strong principles, a compelling vision for the future, and the like—Christine O’Donnell stood out as the better choice for Delaware voters during last night’s debate. But the MSM seems to be focusing, instead, on a somewhat less important quality where O’Donnell’s opponent, Chris Coons, might have | Read More »
BREAKING: DSCC Sending Reinforcements to Delaware for Coons
Is the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee a bit concerned about the potential impact of the Tea Party in Delaware or have the Democrats completely written off Carol Shea-Porter running for New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District? I ask because the Democrats have sent the lady who was on the ground running operations for Carol Shea-Porter’s congressional bid to Delaware to be the Field Director for Chris | Read More »
A metric ton of new polling today
Good evening. We have a great deal of new polling that’s flooded in. Much of it is interesting too, so rather than pick and choose which polls I’ll cover in depth and which I will omit, instead I’ll give a quick look at all the good ones. We’ve got Senate races in Nevada, Connecticut, West Virginia, Ohio, New York, Missouri, and Delaware, plus races for | Read More »

Coons vs. Coons in ‘Biden seat’ rhetoric!
Compare and contrast: “It’s often said that this is Joe Biden’s seat. It’s not. It’s Delaware’s seat.” This would have been a fine statement by Chris Coons (D-CAND, DE-SEN) in last Thursday’s debate*… if only he believed it. You see, one of the people that have often said that the seat in question was “Joe Biden’s seat” is… Chris Coons (D CAND, DE-SEN). We cannot | Read More »
Reid’s Pet (D CAND, DE-SEN) broke promise, raised taxes.
Via The Other McCain and The Tech Guy we see this helpful reminder; as New Castle County’s head official Democratic Senatorial candidate Chris Coons managed to somehow turn an inherited surplus and a firm no-tax pledge into multiple violations of said pledge and Delaware’s most populous county headed towards bankruptcy (by his own admission). And Coons had to preemptively address the tax issue, which is | Read More »
The first post-primary poll in Delaware
I normally like to let these races rest a week before I start looking into the polling, but thanks to one pollster sitting on a pre-primary poll to drop the bomb after the primary, I thought I’d hit today the actual first post-primary poll of the race between Democrat Chris Coons and Republican Christine O’Donnell.
Meet Chris Coons (D CAND, DE-SEN). Harry Reid’s… pet.
Understandable that this would be said of Chris Coons: after all, look at that happy grin! That marvelous posture! That glossy coat… pelt… erm, skin! Admittedly, this isn’t the best example of the breed in the smarts department – Coons admitted to being a Marxist in his more hirsute days, and we all know that Marxism is intellectualism for stupid people – but smarts aren’t | Read More »
Rasmussen: Castle greatly outperforms O’Donnell
I’m definitely a latecomer to following the Delaware Senate primary between Republicans Mike Castle and Christine O’Donnell, but now that I’m aware of it, it’s striking to me just how differently the two candidates perform in the new Rasmussen poll featuring each candidate against Democrat Chris Coons.
Extrapolating about the Delaware Senate primary
All the talk in your typical Senate analysis this year has assumed Republican Mike Castle will beat Democrat Chris Coons in the Delaware Senate race, but the fact is there’s still a GOP primary in progress. It’s forgivable to forget about that primary when polling of the primary is scarce, and PPP and Rasmussen hold Coons under 40, but let’s extrapolate from the PPP poll | Read More »
