Analyzing Swing States: Florida, Part 1

    This is the first part of a series of posts analyzing the swing state Florida. Part two can be found here. In 2008, Illinois Senator Barack Obama won Colorado by 9.0%, Florida by 2.8%, and Indiana by 1.0%. Guess which one was the “swing state” in 2004. The answer is Florida, and if that seems strange in light of the above – it is. In | Read More »

    Democrats’ Breach of Trust Could Lead to Big November Losses

    We’re heading into the home stretch. We’ve rounded the final corner and are now speeding towards the November finish line. If you haven’t figured it out I’m talking about the upcoming elections where Democrats are trying their best to stay ahead of the Republicans in the race for Congressional control. But Democrats appear to be running out of fuel, the result of a failed “Recovery | Read More »

    Jim Rutledge for US Senate in Maryland

    It is quite a unique political phenomenon when 11 candidates are running for the Republican nomination for Senate in the deep blue state of Maryland.  It is even more special when one of those candidates is a passionate and articulate conservative, who has the gravitas and the energy to mount a serious challenge to arch-socialist, Senator Barbara Mikulski.  Jim Rutledge is the candidate running for | Read More »

    John Raese Surging In West Virginia

    According to a new Rasmussen poll, conservative Republican John Raese has pulled within 6 points of Democrat Governor Joe Manchin in West Virginia.  Manchin now leads Raese 48%-42%, sharply lower than his 51%-35% lead just one month ago. Also, this poll provides us with even better news.  Obama has a 70% disapproval rating in the Mountain State!  This is very significant because Manchin is trying | Read More »

    A plethora of new polls on Midwestern House seats – IA, IN, MI, MO, OH, WA, WI

    Yes, I know Washington isn’t in the Midwest. So sue me. In any case, we got a huge batch of polls for House races yesterday, which are normally few and far between. They also tend to be overlooked by blogs, so I thought I would give them a bit more exposure. Besides, they’re mostly good news. The polls come to us courtesy of Ayres, McKinley, | Read More »

    Fake Tea Flushed In Michigan

    The fake tea party in Michigan has been dealt a pretty serious blow, and will have to pursue its ambition to deceive voters by taking its case to court, represented by one Michael Hodge.  Michigan Capitol Confidential reports: Mark Steffek, the man who formed The Tea Party and was described by the Detroit Free Press as a former union steward, was not present. However, dozens | Read More »

    NY 20th: Gibson Supporters More Than Triple Moveon.org Protesters

    On August 20th, US House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) attended a fundraiser for NY 20th district congressional candidate Colonel Chris Gibson in Saratoga Springs, NY.  The event was held near the historic Saratoga Racetrack.  A few days prior, Moveon.org announced a protest of the event.  In response, the Gibson campaign asked supporters to come out with less than 48 hours notice.

    Ten Citizen Solutions

    "What can we do?!" You hear that question a lot these days. It is often a frustrated response to the socialist direction of our federal government…or liberal schemes in a City Hall or Statehouse. Millions of Americans are new to the conservative movement. They have become more intensely concerned about politics because of reckless deficit spending, unemployment, corruption and scandal. We need to turn their | Read More »

    Wis. Senate: Johnson Opposes Climate Fascism

    Conservative Republican Ron Johnson, who is running to unseat Senator Feingold in Wisconsin, has come out against the global warming agenda this week.

    Seven Questions with Christine O’Donnell

    Like any other conservative running in 2010, Christine O’Donnell hopes that a November 2 victory signals the end of a damaging era in American Politics. For Christine; however, there is an added weight to the occasion. . .she would be the winner of an open race that could throw the Democrat’s plans for a lame-duck counteroffensive into a tailspin.

    Barney Frank no longer hiding contempt for activist base.

    So Rep. Barney Frank (D, MA) has told off progressives: he insists that they must only attempt to mount primary challenges to ‘conservative’ Democrats in districts where the Democrats have a lock on the seat anyway. If they don’t, well, apparently the response then is to suffer – or perhaps move: Rep. Frank didn’t say so, but it seems a logical enough alternative. No, really, | Read More »

    Don’t be stupid GOP

    As an accounting / finance type I am, by nature, a cautious fellow.  I like fixed rate loans so that I know what I’m paying every month.  I drive defensively.  I read my e-mails at work 3 or 4 times before sending them.  Within that framework, however, I am still cautiously optimistic about the upcoming elections and the prospects for a conservative resurgence (as best | Read More »
