Louie Gohmert must have felt a disturbance in the force because he went out and made a more ridiculous comment:

This is like the run-up to Obama winning North Carolina in 2008. So hard to see it could happen, and there it was. I'm not saying Nunn is a lock to win but it never seemed conceivable before.

For reference, Shaheen led 53-43 in their September 29th poll.

This is going to be close - I'll give Shaheen the edge unless we start seeing more polls that have Brown up, but a Brown win wouldn't come as a big surprise. I think this race is more likely to flip than North Carolina.

I agree. A surprise win by Brown would be the least surprising surprise I can imagine, honestly. NH can swing tremendously from election to election. Tillis winning but not Brown would surprise me more.

Okay seriously Torie should be an AP English teacher

Torie being a unionized teacher in New York would be a beautiful thing.

While anything is technically possible, I can't imagine a world where national mood the Republicans pick up the Senate, but NC elects a Democrat. Something has got to give.

It's a world where African American voters turn out in high numbers for a midterm election but the rest of the Obama coalition falls off and independents don't turn out.

How does El Paso County turn out more Democrats than all of Denver combined?

Backtored, he's a troll.

The amount of votes in Colorado is tiny. It's way too early to make any conclusions.

This. Seems Republicans are getting desperate.


Republicans are up in the polls and up in early voting and you think it is Republicans who are getting desperate?

Not if you discount Junk polls.

In other words, every other poll except for YouGov and internals?

2002 was also the one unequivocally good Republican year he ran in since Kentucky shifted so heavily to the Rs. At least in 1996, Clinton could keep it competitive. Bruce Lunsford wasn't a better candidate than Lois Combs Weinberg.
10  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2014 Senatorial Election Polls / Re: PPP-IA: Braley +1 on: October 18, 2014, 10:55:32 am
Perhaps I'm in the minority, but I haven't been and am still not really worried about Braley losing this race. He's been such a terrible candidate and Iowa is so elastic that if he were in any real danger of losing, it would be more evident at this point.

What do you make of most of the polls showing Ernst up? Also, the Koch bros. (AFP) appear to be matching the Dems in driving up early votes.

It's not a revelation that Iraq had chemical weapons in the 1980s.

Let's not forget, Obama won this district in 2008.

The legislature made it a tad more Republican after the census. I don't think he would have won it in 2012 on 2008 results.

She picks lousy years in which to run.
15  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2014 Senatorial Election Polls / Re: PPP-IA: Braley +1 on: October 17, 2014, 11:46:49 am
I remember in 2010 how the bottom nearly fell out completely for the Dems in Iowa. IA-1 and IA-2 weren't considered competitive and then in the final weeks, the DCCC started spending money to support Braley and Loebsack which probably made the difference for them. It's why I have been taking Ernst's lead at face value.

Yes, yes, and no and that's all I'll say. Wink

The electorate in GA, NC, VA, LA where Dems are doing quite well is more diverse, or differently diverse (large African-American population as opposed to more Latino or Native American), than in all the states where Dems are doing relatively poorly this year.
19  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2014 Senatorial Election Polls / Re: CO-Sen, Quinnipiac: Gardner in the lead on: October 16, 2014, 03:15:07 pm
If voters are stupid enough to actually elect Gardner, that's not Udall's fault. Sometimes, voters are determined to elect the worst possible candidates to office.

No. Dem incumbents with a good record in a lean-D State in a neutral year don't normally lose reelection. Udall screwed up, there's no other way to put it.

Colorado has only very recently become lean Dem, and it's swung back and forth before. This is the kind of seat Dems should expect to lose in a decent Republican year which is unfortunately what 2014 is starting to look like.

Dem incumbents in more diverse swing states (VA, NC, even LA all things considered as a non-swing state) are holding up much better than Dems with much less diverse electorates (CO, IA) and for that reason I'm seeing Scott Brown as a surprise winner now.

Pryor isnt going anywhere. Voter ID law struck.
That doesn't effect the race much.  Black turnout is going to be horrible no matter what.  It could actually hurt Pryor.  Those poor whites could now come out in droves to get him out of office.

Republican voting correlates heavily with wealth in southern states like Arkansas and Mississippi, as opposed to states like Connecticut where the relationship is flat.

She's a great Dem candidate for Florida.

The Dem margin in requested ballots in Iowa is now narrower than it was in 2010.
