Horrible. When you run a complete disaster of a campaign, you go away. Her running again would be equivalent to Todd Akin running again. I'm sure she's nice and has decent political views but she has damaged the party by being a failure.

Feingold's campaign was a disaster (he refused to accept outside help) but most people want him to run again. Most people correctly assign the blame to the political climate, not to Feingold even though he made some mistakes. Why isn't this true for Coakley as well? It's hard to think of a time more politically hostile to Democrats than January 2010 (except maybe November 2010). Yes, Massachusetts was much bluer and Coakley's campaign was much worse, but can that really explain this huge difference in sentiment?

That's not why she's an HP. Incompetent campaigns don't make someone HP.

As Wormy said, Coakley used her position to keep innocent people in prison. That's a textbook HP if there ever was one.

Colorado update for 10/24.

Total votes: 517,058 (this is about 25% of expected total statewide vote)

Republicans: 226219 (44%)
Democrats: 164083 (32%)
Unaffiliated: 126756 (25%)

Amazing.  In 2010 Republicans finished at +6%.

Didn't you say that Democrats don't really start sending in their ballots until few days before election day?  That said, this is obviously bad.

7  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: How did Shelley Moore Capito not get primaried? on: October 24, 2014, 08:11:05 am
Congressman Doug McKinley - Too moderate and someone as establishment-flavored as him would never primary an anointed candidate like Capito (probably from the same wing of the party, but IDK) although he'd have been a top-tier recruit if she didn't run.  I could see him running for Governor or for Senate in 2016 (although if Morrisey announces he'll be running for Governor first, McKinley would probably only consider running for Senate since he seems like he's very much a team-player).

AG Patrick Morrisey - Other than a some dude quality state legislator, he'd be the one to do it (if anyone was going to).  Morrisey seems pretty right-wing from what I've read about him, but he's really ambitious and was smart enough to realize that he could easily become persona non-grata in WV Republican politics if he ran and lost the primary or the general (or even won, but won ugly in the primary).  My guess is that he'll run for Governor (especially if Manchin doesn't), he seems more like an executive-type than a legislator; a Senate run seems unlikely.  I could also see him just running for re-election too.  If he wanted to be a legislator, he could've easily won Capito's open seat this cycle (weak primary field and it's only lean R because Mooney is such a weak candidate).  

State Senator Bill Cole - Cole strikes me as a potential rising star for the WV GOP, but he seems relatively establishment-flavored.  He's probably better off running against Rahall (assuming the latter is re-elected, if Rahall loses this year then Cole probably needs to get elected to statewide downballot office before running for something like Senate).

John Raese - This is like asking if Peter King will run for President in 2016.  Maybe, but aside from entertainment value, who cares?  It's not like he'd have a snowball's chance in hell Tongue

Rick Snuffer - If he is a tea-party type (IDK, Riley could answer that) then he'd be the type of C-list State Delegate (maybe not Snuffer, but you get the idea) we'd be talking about since Morrisey wouldn't run.  Someone this weak wouldn't have a chance against Capito.  

Riley can correct me if any of this post is wrong, but my sense is Capito got in because other than Morrisey (who is smart enough not to try to primary an anointed candidate), the WV GOP bench is basically a handful of establishment folks.  That will almost certainly change in 1-3 cycles, but we're not there quite yet.  The Democrats still control the state, even if they are on borrowed time.

I can't wait until Orman starts voting with Republicans.

Who cares?  A RINO from Kansas is still infinitely better than an actual Republican.
13  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Michelle's at it again: Mistakes Mark Udall for Cory Gardner on: October 23, 2014, 06:57:18 pm
No, don't you see what she's doing?  She's trying to get people to think Udall is actually Gardner, it may be our only chance for this seat at this point.

I almost wonder if she's just sick of campaigning for people and is trying to get out of it Tongue

Christ, get her off the trail.

15  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2014 Gubernatorial Election Polls / Re: NV: Global Strategy Group: Sandoval near 70% (!) on: October 23, 2014, 06:21:45 pm
The GOP Governor before Sandoval also won re-election with nearly 70%, so it's certainly possible.

Interesting. Though that was before Nevada turned into a heavily Democratic state though. In my opinion, Sandoval definitely looks stronger and more well-positioned than Christie right now. Though Sandoval isn't a bully like Christie, so Christie will still probably do better in a GOP primary.

Btw, this might be a post-Tesla bump for Sandoval.

Sandoval is also pro-choice and relatively pro-gay rights, I mean, I like him too, but in a GOP primary he's basically dead.

He'd be a great VP pick though.

That's not how polling works.

Waiting for confirmation from a credible firm, but this seems reasonable.

You guys are unbelievable.  If it's a joke firm, it's a joke firm.  And its results are crap and not reason for optimism or pessimism.

The Complete Idiot's Guide to X's Previous Post in This Thread

This post is dedicated to Rockefeller GOP!  Wherever you are Rocky, know that without your lack of reading comprehension skills, none of this would be necessary.


Introduction: Sometimes my posts in this thread can be confusing, some have even called them "unbelievable."  Fortunately, help is one the way Smiley  Whether you're mystified by complex phrases like "this seems reasonable" or baffled by fancy five-dollar words like "confirmation" and "waiting," after reading this post, you too will be able to understand a very short post I made in this thread.  Prepare to believe the "unbelievable!"

Part 1: In my previous post, the phrase "Waiting for confirmation..." meant that I am not going to read too much into this poll until there is more evidence to support its findings.

Part 2: In my previous post, the phrase "...from a credible firm" meant that I do not consider Rasmussen a remotely reliable polling company and that the evidence supporting this poll which I mentioned in Part 1 would need to come from a more reliable polling company.  Note: Some readers may need to refer back to Part 1 for reference."

Part 3: In my previous post, the word "but" was being used to link the final part of the sentence fragment to the part discussed in Part 1 and Part 2.

Part 4: In my previous post, the phrase "this seems reasonable" meant that I found the results of this poll believable and thought that they made sense, despite coming from Rasmussen.

See what critics are saying about The Complete Idiot's Guide to X's Previous Post in This Thread:

- Rockefeller GOP says its "unbelievable" and "...a reason for optimism"
- Read the post Krazen calls "Dominating!"
- "Ken Buck, Ken Buck?  Colorado.  Ken Buck.  KEN BUCK.  2010.  Ken Buck" writes Keystone Phil
- "Why does everyone hate me?" asks kitten whiskers

Alaska Republicans seem to always be insane. Always.

Dan Sullivan seems like a relatively normal, if boring, guy.

Give him time Tongue  On a different note, one really has to wonder about a state that would keep re-electing Young, but vote out Begich.
23  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Sarah Palin has endorsed Walker in AK-Gov race. on: October 23, 2014, 10:49:53 am
Palin is super unpopular in Alaska, so maybe this is a sneaky strategy to knock off Walker and re-elect Parnell.

Then again, Palin isn't exactly known for sneaky political strategy Tongue

Whether it was Palin's idea or not (and I doubt it was), this was a brilliant move and can only help Parnell.
24  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2014 Senatorial Election Polls / Re: KS: Rasmussen: Orman +5 on: October 23, 2014, 10:44:31 am
^ PPP had Orman +3, but yeah, I'd like more polls from here.

I know, but this suggests Roberts has lost some momenrum while Orman has gained support, unlike what the PPP poll was showing.
