=SMGS127;11760716]The right pulls this out every year, and every year, they get burned over it.
Funny, I seem to remember the left being quite sure Kerry had it all won in 2004.
And then there’s “I’m stuck here making $172,000” Phil Gingrey. Those are 2 of the top 4 candidates in your primary. In the most recent Landmark (a Republican polling company, if you’re concerned) poll, Gingrey was polling at 19% to Karen Handel’s (a pretty decent conservative Republican, very pro-life) 14% to Broun’s 13%. That’s pretty sad that Handel (or Jack Kingston, in 4th with 11%) isn’t running away with it against the other 2 crazies. But Kingston has a reputation for being “moderate” (as in “only” like 97% party-line rating in Georgia), so he is suffering at the moment.
Some Americans are sick and tired of having to choose between dying by gun shot wounds versus paper cuts.
Have you heard from the Gary Johnson/Virgil Goode/Optimus Prime write-in crowd?? I haven’t. I’ve been speculating that they’re too busy figuring out how they’re going to pay a 12 grand deductible while losing chunks of their income.
Purist principles come with a price that I doubt most Americans are willing to pay at the end of the day.
See above. It’s all well and good to be a red state, but if you nominate someone insane, you still lose most of the time. See Claire McCaskill’s domination of Todd Akin in an otherwise-lost race for Democrats in 2012.
To quote realclear: Missouri is a state with “wild swings” and a democrat governor.
Then you are completely ignoring the Democratic history of Montana on a state level. Montana will be extremely close.
No it won’t.
Hagan is currently leading in NC, though her lead has decreased.
Last I looked, she was trailing ALL her opponents.
Please tell me the source of these comments is NOT the aggregate on the Huffington Post…
Pryor is an extremely tough Democrat to beat, and I’d imagine he pulls it out in the end. He’s one of the few pro-life Senate Democrats left.
Pro-life…yeah, that’s why he voted for ObamaCare.
Landrieu is the weakest of the three, and I could see her losing her seat certainly. But she’s in a flip-flop situation in the polls at the moment.
In left-leaning polls, yes. That’s why she’s in trouble. GOP pick-up here.
People are overhyping Scott Brown.
Maybe some bitter northeast elites would like to think so after he took Ted—oh, excuse me, the PEOPLE’s seat in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts!
That’d be like a democrat winning a Senate race in Oklahoma! :rotfl:
New Hampshire people don’t like people just jumping into the state and acting like they have the authority to run in their state just because they can’t win in their own home state.
It worked for Al Franken and Hilary Clinton. :shrug:
]Add in that Jeanne Shaheen is extremely popular in the state,
Then why is she polling under 50%?
and I find it highly unlikely Brown could break 45% against her, let alone win.
Why not? Brown is exactly the kind of moderate that state would like.
This is also not to mention the fact that NH Republicans are actually fairly far-right (certainly the most out of any New England state). So I’m not sure he could make it through a primary unless the establishment forces him through. And that will create ill will with the base.
I think he could.
Or they need to stop harping on imaginary concepts like the “liberal media” and just do down-and-dirty politics.
Academic studies confirm extreme media bias. There’s nothing imaginary about that.
The media isn’t the one in a high profile race making comments about how rape victims can’t get pregnant.
They are ones who made it the issue of the day and they have to. Liberalism from the social issues to the fiscal ones is based on lies and false promises.
I’m stilling waiting for some substantive coverage on Benghazi. :sadyes:
