What's even more uncommon is for a candidate to lose their home state but still win the Presidency. It's happened only twice - Wilson in 1916 and Polk in 1844. So unless the Mittster thinks he's the next Wilson or Polk things aren't looking too good for him.

Barbour: 55.5%
Eaves: 44.5%

Isn't there some Mississippi law that says they must also win a majority of the House districts or something? Is there an outside possibility that Eaves could get a majority of those?

If you're polling below the margin of error you're allowed to attend BUT you must wear a gorilla suit and speak in tongues.

The only thing I see as at all being wrong is that she is "warm and open", her reputation is definately not as such, though personally I think she has done a great job as governor (better than Locke at least who didn't seem to get anything done.)
You're right that that's her reputation, but I've met her several times and the article's accurate. She's very friendly and caring and is probably one of the nicest people I've ever met. I once saw her walking through the Capitol and while passing a school group she stopped to talk to them and then made sure to sign something and talk to every kid. Apparently that's typical behavior, drives her staff nuts.

One of my parents works for her, she is definately not what I would call "warm". Though that is not to say I dont think she has done a great job as Governor, she has definately been able to get things done.
Well, I for one have always found her to be friendly. But I do agree with you that she's been doing a fine job and is much better than Locke.

This guy voted against the landmark 2005 bill in the Legislature that prohibited housing and employment discrimination based on sexual orientation and the 2007 bill establishing domestic partnerships. What a sad hypocrite.

On an unrelated note, while looking through his voting record I found that he sponsored a bill with the title of "Aborted fetal body parts". Eww

These polls by the UW seem to be way off the mark compared to SurveyUSA's results both on the statewide ballot measures and the approval ratings, and personal I trust SurveyUSA quite a bit more than college polling. I give them an A for effort though.

why did you leave out Aaron Russo?

Because Aaron Russo isn't running?
And now he's dead...

Christmas with the candidates!

I would think January 12th would be a logical date for NH to pick as well.

NH law requires them to go at least 7 days before "any similar contest", and so NH SoS has promised that, with MI going on Jan. 15, the *earliest* possible date for the NH primary would be Jan. 8th.  They could go even earlier than that, but no one expects them to do so.

Oops, you're right - for a second there I thought that it was 7 days after any previous contest.

Look for Inslee to run for Governor in 2012 or whenever Gregoire decides not to run again. He's had his eye on the office for more than a decade and he's been dolling out money to State Legislative campaigns trying to build up support.

They tied in Ferry County, WA. Both get a first place ranking, neither get a second.

Same thing happened in 1984 in Gallatin County, KY.
