So, DSCC: which candidate will you abandon…

    …to firewall Connecticut? Propelled by Connecticut likely voters who say they are “angry” with government, former wrestling executive Linda McMahon, the Republican U.S. Senate candidate, is closing in on Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, the Democrat, and now trails just 49 – 46 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. This compares to a 51 – 45 percent Blumenthal lead in a September 14 | Read More »

    The poll that scares the Democrats most.

    It’s this one, from the never-to-be-sufficiently-hated-by-the-Left Rasmussen: and on its face it’s innocuous enough.  It’s the partisan identification poll, and it currently lists Democrats at 35%, Republicans at 33.8%, and Neither at 31.1%.  Unsurprising, based on recent events, right? – Also, it’s a poll of adults, so this probably means a Republican advantage among likely voters, as that’s the usual rule of thumb for these | Read More »

    The August Rasmussen Trust Numbers.

    The latest Rasmussen trust numbers are out, after what was an odd formatting thing that made me decide to stop reporting them until things settled down.  Short version: Rasmussen has replaced Abortion with Afghanistan in the top ten category; the GOP won all ten, including that perennial heartbreaker Government Ethics; and the numbers nonetheless show a shift away from July’s numbers, mostly because July’s numbers | Read More »

    As reported by Politico, Harry Reid has decided not to advance the Democrats’ Senate energy bill prior to the body’s scheduled August recess. The matter will be reconsidered when the Senate returns after Labor Day.

    A Dim View

    0bama has time to go on The View where all he did was campaign for himself, but then, that’s about all he knows how to do. I doubt if anyone expected anything different to come of it. Meanwhile back at the ranch, his regime is run by tax cheats, crooks and incompetent morons, but 0bama doesn’t care. His party will be voted out of control | Read More »

    Two Plus Two Equals Five

    Every day I turn on the news to find a new policy, spending bill or program being pushed by the Administration that seems to contradict logic and reason. We are living in a deep recession with 8 million jobs lost, a record $13 trillion debt, record federal deficits four times greater than during the Bush Administration while fighting two wars, but the Obama Administration is | Read More »

    Gallup whispers DOOM in 2010.

    With less than four months to go before the fall elections, the greatest growth industry in the country right now is the tea importation business: everybody who has any interest in the November results is trying his or her hand at precognition.  Gallup is no exception: This year’s low approval ratings for Congress are a potentially ominous sign for President Obama and the Democratic majority | Read More »

    Rasmussen: Support for Obamacare repeal almost 2-to-1.

    I almost wish I hadn’t written this: it would have been perfect for this Rasmussen poll on Obamacare. Support for repeal of the new national health care plan has jumped to its highest level ever.
