Election Preview: Tale of Three States
Here is a Thursday update to my election analysis, using the most recent RCP information. Assuming BO overpolling 1 pt. Pennsylvania – BO 52.3 and JM 42.8; Undecideds 4.9; BO will overpoll by 1 pt.; Undecideds, less 2.0, 2.9 will break 5/7 for JM and 2/7 for BO – based on 2008 Democratic Primary Performance. Prediction given these assumptions: JM – 45.8 BO 52.2 Ohio | Read More »
The Obama-Frank defense cuts create an opening
My friend and colleague, Patrick Ottenhoff, had an interesting analysis of Virginia back in June that could be on the money: Major federal contractors set up shop in Northern Virginia and, in turn, subcontracted work to technology firms that hired accountants and lawyers. The young professionals who work at those firms in Tysons Corner, Reston and Ashburn are part of Obama’s core constituency. But the | Read More »
Well half of my autumn dream is true so far
Well the Phillies won it. My sympathy and condolences to Rays fans. Now I’m just hoping that John McCain and Sarah Palin can pull-off an upset, with all of our help of course, against the presumptive President-elect. Even here in Penn’s Woods it just may go our way. Should that happen, my daily Lager double at dinner time will have that much more savor to | Read More »
Palin meets Israeli ambassador
VIa Ha’aretz, which reports that Gov. Sarah Palin has met with Israel’s representative in the U.S. while campaigning in Virginia. The Israel issue has the potential to swing tens of thousands of votes in key states. Three developments may drive undecided pro-Israel voters to McCain: The controversy over the L.A. Times and the Obama-Khalidi tape. The comments of anti-Israel voices, enthusiastic for an Obama victory. | Read More »
“McCain will win Pennsylvania”, so say the PUMA ground people
I’ve been spending a lot of time reading the HillBuzz site the last few weeks. If McCain pulls this off, I would recommend that RedState and HillBuzz try to sponsor a joint forum to see what common legislative goals we could agree to for helping the country. In any case, these guys have their hooks into the Democrats for McCain folks, especially the former Hillary | Read More »

John Murtha Is Ripe For A Beat Down & Defeat
Friends, Bill Russell, who I did not think had a shot in hell, is kicking Murtha all over Pennsylvanian. I’m delighted to have been wrong about this race. Bill Russell is ahead in the polling and Murtha is about to get some serious beat downs and surprises this week from some angry Marines he slandered. We can and should help pick off Nancy Pelosi’s consigliere. | Read More »

A Campaign Issue for Pennsylvania: Affirmative Action?
The most recent poll in Pennsylvania on the question of affirmation that I was able to find, a 2003 poll, shows that Pennsylvanians oppose affirmative action programs by more than 20%. Considering the unique nature of this year’s presidential election, I wonder if McCain isn’t making a massive blunder by not clearly running against quotos and race-based set-asides–especially in a place like Pennsylvania which has | Read More »
Is Jack Murtha in Trouble?
Not that it was considered possible. Not this year. However, we could be close to removing Okinawa Jack Murtha’s arrogant, corrupt mug from the United States Congress. This one is happening mostly under the radar, but, though considered unthinkable by bitter, partisan Dems, it is happening. Jack Murtha has represented Pennsylvania’s 12th CD for sixteen undistinguished terms in which he has seemingly done nothing but | Read More »

Obama not to give out street money in PA?
You may believe or not, as you choose, about whether that recent +2 Obama internal poll for PA was a leak, disinformation, or a motivational exercise. By now it’s probably taken on elements of all three, and we’ll know on 11/05 just how close PA actually was. This state has always been problematical for the Obama campaign anyway, and goodness knows that some of the | Read More »
Obama’s lead down to two points in Pennsylvania
John McCain and Sarah Palin have spent a lot of time in Pennsylvania of late, and team Obama might have an internal poll showing the race in the commonwealth tightening fast. [M]uch buzz today surrounds the apparently inadvertent leak of an internal poll by Barack Obama’s campaign in Pennsylvania that supposedly showed the Democrat leading there by only 2 percentage points — a much-slimmer margin | Read More »
Winning PENNSYLVANIA’s Coal Town Vote, Biden: “No Coal Plants in America”
Pennsylvania is key to a McCain win. It has been clear that Obama-Biden are doing a dance on clean coal. We should resurrect this Biden clip where he says they’re against clean coal: `
Did you hear?
John Zogby this morning has issued his daily tracking poll and it shows a 10 point Obama advantage nationwide. No way! If anyone had any doubt about the accuracy of the polls — the more I hear about a 10 or 11 or 12 point lead nationwide for The One, the more I discount all polls. (I am reminded that CBS News in the days | Read More »
