Democratic Death Panel Watch: The Line of Credit.
Reportedly, the DCCC has acquired a $17 million dollar line of credit for the November elections. Leaving aside the hilarity of the committee suddenly feeling the need to put in for emergency funds – remember when they were going to crush us with their existing money? How is that going, anyway – here’s a thought to cheer up people’s weekends: if they have the money, | Read More »
Pew Research reveals THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST.
If I didn’t know better, I’d think that Pew was just having its little joke by making sure that its latest report on the midterms had a URL of http://people-press.org/report/666/. If it did, then Pew would be well on its way to winning the contest of being The Coolest Research Center EVER – but it’s much more likely that this was just an accident. A | Read More »
Chris Matthews brings DOOM unto Jack Conway.
Yes. That Chris Matthews. Matthews apparently did not personally approve of the way that Jack Conway smeared Rand Paul with a recent scurrilous ad, and so took the opportunity to smack Conway around for over seven minutes of pretty much relentless, aggressive interviewing. Yes, again: that Chris Matthews. As I remarked just now on Twitter, watching this was like watching Jack Conway get mauled by | Read More »
Two years into the Obama presidency, and this kind of thing really shouldn’t be a surprise. Obama told the several dozen donors that he was offering them his “view from the Oval Office.” He faulted the economic downturn for Americans’ inability to “think clearly” and said the burden is on Democrats “to break through the fear and the frustration people are feeling.” The President believes | Read More »
DOOM from the Hill.
I just got sent something that was pretty garbled, but the gist of it is: the Hill’s reporting on at least 10 House races. Of them, 2 have the Democrat ahead and the others have the Republican ahead. Or possibly it’s 22 races, and the GOP is ahead in 19, Democrat ahead in 2, 1 tie: as I said, what I got sent was a | Read More »
Charlie Cook’s List of DOOM.
For those who don’t know: Charlie Cook is one of the more respected political handicappers out there, with a solid reputation for accurate forecasting. I can personally attest to that, given that in 2008 I glumly used his site to assist me in the task of watching things spiral downward for the GOP. As you can imagine, the 2010 election cycle has been a lot | Read More »
Wall Street Journal: RedState Winner in 2010 Primaries
Self explanatory. Credit not just to Erickson for his acumen in picking candidates to support, but for all of you who’ve actually made that support count.
The vaunted youth vote gets a cold dose of reality
This video, from the U.S. Senate campaign of Rep. Roy Blunt, who is running against MO Sec’y of State Robin Carnahan for Sen Kit Bond’s seat, caught my eye for several reasons: I went to the University of Missouri, which is strongly represented in the vid One of my kids is a college student, and the other one soon will be I was amused by | Read More »
Who Do You Trust? Not Congress.
New annual poll from Gallup on who America’s most trusted institutions are – and it’s almost entirely bad news for the Left. Topping the list? Five institutions consistently targeted and mistrusted by the Left: (1) the military (trusted by 76%), (2) small business (66%, the only other institution over 60), (3) the police, (4) church/organized religion, and (5) the medical system. The bottom? Congress (11% | Read More »
DCCC cuts and runs from HI-01.
Guess they decided to stop throwing money away, more’s the pity. The DCCC is pulling out of the race to replace ex-Rep. Neil Abercrombie (D-HI), effectively ceding the heavily Dem seat to the GOP as intra-party feuding splits the vote. “The DCCC will not be investing additional resources in the HI-01 (Abercrombie-open) special election. Local Democrats were unable to work out their differences,” DCCC communications | Read More »
Scott Brown Goes To 11
Too good to check: Jim Geraghty hears that Scott Brown’s campaign has internal polls showing him up 11 points: I’m getting the sense that the folks hearing this are almost a little incredulous, but it seems every demographic and key group is breaking to Brown in the past day or two. Geraghty also notes conflicting reports that Martha Coakley‘s internal polls show her either even | Read More »
Coakley can’t even remember her position on *abortion* these days.
Bill Jacobson points out a minor detail with Big Pharma shill Martha Coakley trying to spin Scott Brown’s past support of permitting medical personnel to have a religious objection to the morning-after pill into being anti-rape victim: she’s on the record as supporting far more. first, Legal Insurrection: Here is the language in section 1302(a)(3) of the bill (at page 125) passed by the Senate | Read More »
I declare DOOM for Martha Coakley (D, MA-SEN).
I’ve been fighting the urge: it’s Massachusetts. But let’s review the evidence. The latest Rasmussen poll: 49/47 Coakley/Brown. That’s +2 Coakley for likely voters. Definite ones? +1 Brown. The total shift is +7 Brown in a week. Internal Democratic polling (via AoSHQ) is saying Coakley +5. Last week? Coakley +14. +9 shift to Brown, in other words. They’re not just paying union members to hold | Read More »
Red Tide Rising!
“Toss up in Massachusetts” ,That is the headline over at PPP. The truth is, it should read Brown LEADS!! Buoyed by a huge advantage with independents and relative disinterest from Democratic voters in the state, Republican Scott Brown leads Martha Coakley 48-47. And that’s not even the best quote. We lead enthusiasm 66% to 48%, we lead the indie vote 63%-31%* with Scott Brown claiming | Read More »
