Cook’s DOOMList: 10/28/2010 edition.

    This may be the penultimate DOOMList from Cook with regard to the House: it’s the Friday before the election and there’s just not much time left for tracking the ongoing Democratic party’s synchronized mass career implosion.  Which is not to say that more extinction events won’t occur, but there’s a limit to how fast Cook can write them down.

    The last (probably) pre-Labor Day Cook rankings.

    House. Senate. Governorships. If you don’t feel like clicking through the links, allow me to summarize: ten more House seats shifted in the GOP’s favor, and so did three Senate seats, and so did four Governor’s races.  Only one of them (WY-GOV) is now off the actual board, but Cook is now projecting  a net +6 to +8 GOP in the Governors’ races, a net | Read More »

    Latest Cook Shift: Dem Woes Worsen.

    It’s a little hard to immediately see, because what happened was an inadvertent cascade effect.  A couple of races became competitive at the same time that rather more races became rather more competitive, one after the other.  Net result?  Six Democrats are now in more danger of losing their seats, while one Democrat is now in less danger: ID-01 Minnick Toss-Up Lean D NC-02 Etheridge | Read More »

    So, basically, if you’re a Democrat in debt…

    …from your last campaign, relax: the Online Left is a soft touch for that sort of thing. Happened with Bob Miller (remember him?); and now it’s happening for Rep. Alan Grayson.

    A good “SIGN”

    believe it is worth mentioning that I have yet to see an Obama yard sign while I driver through my neighborhood to and from work….What’s the big deal about that???? I live on the southwest side of Chicago, in a neighborhood that is pro democrat….I can’t remember the last time Cook County went red in a Presidential Election….the Chicago collar counties traditionally go red…it is | Read More »
