Palin endorses Mourdock. I think this race will, as is often the case, come down to who turns out to vote.

I'm glad that Palin actually endorsed him. Perhaps this will be enough to solidify momentum. Maybe she and Mourdock could do a couple of rallies together to get publicity?

If there's such a problem with his image, why isn't Obama defeating him in a landslide? The reason is there isn't a problem, and Obama is in incredibly weak standing going into November.

Cameron has three years to turn this around. Plus he wouldn't have attempted austerity had Labour not been so fiscally irresponsible.
4  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: UT-Sen: Hatch misses 60 by a whisker on: April 26, 2012, 04:45:40 am
Liljenquist seems like he has a pretty distinguished record - "Legislator of the Year" for his work on entitlement reform. And apparently he got badly injured in a humanitarian mission plane crash, so that's some super hero cred there.   Some kind of problem with (accidently ?) not paying his taxes, but that's recoverable.  Is it possible he'll have enough appeal to gain support and win the primary?

Possibly. Hatch entered the Senate under similar circumstances.

The Democrat bench in Pennsylvania looks cooked now, with Altmire, Holden, Sestak, and Murphy all now proven losers.

I wonder who they have left to run against Corbett and Toomey.

What about their Philadelphia Reps?

Cruz can pull this off. Smiley

At least Romney's at the 40% mark now.

Why are you happy? He's going to be replaced with a more liberal Democrat.

I want most incumbents that are in competitive primaries to get thrown out. It doesn't matter if he will be replaced with someone more left-wing.

Holden is going down in PA-17.

Fabulous news.

Murphy also losing his bid to be the Dems nominee for AG.

Republicans really failed at giving Casey a competitive race. Welch is in third.
12  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Alberta 2012 on: April 24, 2012, 04:32:53 am
Why is Edmonton so left-wing compared to the rest of the province?
13  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Alberta 2012 on: April 24, 2012, 12:43:49 am
Do you think the desire for change will be too great for the Tories overcome next election? It seems like their win this time was just a fluke.

You know I hate to point out the flaws with FPTP, but the WRP got screwed over majorly by it. The PC shouldn't have gotten 62 seats with 44% of the vote.

Upon a little research, I see that Gladys Knight also has converted to Mormonism. That equals three black Mormons I know of (the third being that guy in Mali.)

Isn't Sherri Shepard a Mormon?
16  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Alberta 2012 on: April 23, 2012, 10:27:38 pm
I will take solace in Sherman losing his seat tonight after the disgusting strategic voting.
17  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Alberta 2012 on: April 23, 2012, 10:07:32 pm
Any chance the NDP can pick up enough seats from the PC to put the WRP over the top?
18  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Alberta 2012 on: April 23, 2012, 10:03:20 pm
CBC not wanting to call it. I would be cautious too due to polls.

Imagine how much egg will be on CTV's face if the WRP comes back.
19  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Alberta 2012 on: April 23, 2012, 09:56:31 pm
Wow these ridings are close!!! It might be a long night.
20  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Alberta 2012 on: April 23, 2012, 09:48:24 pm
It looks like these are good results for the NDP so far.
21  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Alberta 2012 on: April 23, 2012, 09:38:35 pm
NO!!!!! THE PC IS SUPPOSED TO BE THROWN OUT DAMN IT!!!
22  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: Why is Vallejo, California so racially diverse? on: April 23, 2012, 04:30:13 am
What's with all the hate for Vallejo and Richmond? Plus all the lefties here should be in love with Richmond. It has a Green Party mayor.
23  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: France 2012: Official Results Thread on: April 23, 2012, 03:48:01 am
What could really change the direction of this election? Strong debate performance? As much as I'd prefer to see Sarkozy re-elected, I don't see why he'd convince voters in these final two weeks of why they should give him another chance.

Maybe there's some scandal with Hollande that no one knows about yet?
24  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Alberta 2012 on: April 23, 2012, 03:39:12 am
Whoa Danielle Smith is actually kind of hot. It's too bad she has to lead such a horrid party.

Just read the "Policy and identity" section of their Wikipedia article; so they're pretty much American Republicans? Hopefully similar parties can do better and win across Canada.

Alberta's the only province that this can really happen in, and not because of Wildrose politics; it's just fatigue towards the PCs. There's no real alternatives in Alberta other than the Wildrose, as opposed to other provinces. Look at BC, the emergence of a new(ish) right wing party, the BC Conservatives, totally threw a wrench in the BC Libs re-election chances (not that they weren't gonna lose before they were a threat though) and lost two by-elections the other night because of it.

Why are the BC Liberals the de-facto conservative party in the province anyways? Aren't the federal Liberals more left-wing? (although that isn't saying much).
25  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: France 2012: Official Results Thread on: April 23, 2012, 03:32:36 am
I refuse to believe that France will elect Hollande.

Don't worry, Sarkozy still has a good chance to pull this out in round 2, no matter what the polls say right now.

Are you being serious or sarcastic?
