From Unlikely Voter: In an open and credited aping of the Greenberg Quinlan Rosner House battleground polls, Public Opinion Strategies has conducted a massive Senate battleground poll. Politico has for us the summary and 150 pages of gory, numerical details. I’m going to see what sense I can make of it.

Democrat Jack Conway Uses Racist Tyler Clay Collins to Smear Rand Paul
Democrat and Jack Conway supporter Tyler Clay Collins went to the Kentucky Fancy Farm Picnic this past weekend (a big deal in Kentucky) and began mouthing off some vile and offensive racist sentiments. Tyler Clay Collins also held up a sign disparaging immigrants to the country. Tyler Clay Collins wanted everyone to know how much he hates non-white immigrants to the United States. Tyler Clay | Read More »
Democrats Go to Canada. It’s a Fundraising Excursion
Rand Paul’s opponent, Jack Conway, has ventured outside the United States to raise cash from trial lawyers. Conway headed north, to Canada, for a meeting of trial lawyers from whom he wanted cash. The trial lawyers ponied up. Conway’s campaign said it welcomes support from across the country, which Canada is not. But it wasn’t just Conway. The mob banker from Illinois, Giannoulias, went too | Read More »
What is going on in Kentucky?
With the help of the Real Clear Politics, here are the last few polls of the Kentucky Senate race. PPP: Randal Paul +1. RR: Paul +25. SUSA: Paul +6. RR: Paul +8, Paul +7. And now we have PPP: Tie. Why is PPP running so much further toward Jack Conway than the other two pollsters?
Kundera writes of a balcony scene in the winter snow of 1948 Prague. Clementis offers his fur cap to the new leader Gottwald. Later Clementis is purged by the Communists and airbrushed from all the photos. All that remains of Clementis is the fur cap on the Gottwald’s head. In the end, all that remains of any of us is our reputation. Mine has been | Read More »
Arlen Specter is no more. Hahahahahahaha. This makes the fourth person in a statewide race to lose after Barack Obama campaigned for him. Trey Grayson went down in flames to Rand Paul, who openly embraced the tea party label. Tim Burns lost the special election in PA-12, but will now run in the general election for November against the Democrat. It is important to note | Read More »
Election Results Open Thread
Today is a big primary day. I just got off the phone with Tim Burns. He says he feels confident, things look good on the ground, and the Critz campaign has a small election day presence. I’ll be on John King USA starting at 7pm ET on CNN tonight to talk about the election results as they come in. Feel free to tune in. Otherwise, | Read More »
Sorry Trey, Try Again
Now that the DeMint endorsement of Rand Paul and the McConnell endorsement of Trey Grayson have soaked into the bluegrass political landscape, the question is this: whose did more good? I think we now know. Rand Paul is starting the last week of the Kentucky primary 16 points ahead of Trey Grayson. I may need to get up to Bowling Green next week for this.
Everything You Need to Know About Why Voting Rand Paul Makes Sense
Let’s ignore the lies Trey Grayson is telling about Rand Paul and just look at the debate from the other night. This pretty much encapsulates the debate, except it is really hard to convey the total level of smugness that exudes from Trey Grayson. South Park could do a follow up to their smug cloud episode and move to Kentucky where it’d just follow Trey | Read More »
It Was Mitch McConnell
Mitch McConnell is finally endorsing Trey Grayson in Kentucky after working behind the scenes for months with Grayson’s campaign. Grayson’s campaign has all the hallmarks of a McConnell Senate campaign effort, i.e. it is losing. Both times McConnell led the Senate Republicans’ election efforts, they lost seats. But it gets more interesting. As news of McConnell’s endorsement percolates this morning in Kentucky, we now know | Read More »
Republicans Should Oppose the Stimulus Bill
There seems to be a lot of happy talk surrounding Barack Obama’s recent trip to Capitol Hill, and his attempt to sell his stimulus bill to Republicans by adding a few ‘tax cuts.’ But bipartisan bonhomie notwithstanding, there’s no more reason to embrace Barack Obama’s stimulus plan today than there was a week ago. It is still a tremendous waste of taxpayer dollars, will do nothing | Read More »
