You have to love Rasmussen.

Look at their past three polls-

Rossi +3
Murray +5
Rossi +1

First a swing of 8 for Murray, now a swing of 6 for Rossi.

This race has swung a total of 14 points in 29 days.

Whatever you say, Rasmussen...
Ugh, I was really hoping you wouldn't find the forum part of this site...

If you paid any attention to the race if Washington, you would know that Murray started an ad blitz and had the momentum on her side. But then she ran a terribly inaccurate ad, which has put Rossi back on top, but narrowly.

On March 3rd, Mitt Romney's campaign manager makes a surprsing announcement...

I regret to inform you all that I will be stepping down as Governor Romney's campaign manager. A few days ago, my family learned that my wife is battling breast cancer. While I would love to continue leading this campaign to victory, my family must take precedence. I wish the Governor the best of luck, and can't wait to vote for him in the fall.

Speculation rises on who Romney will choose. Among those listed is Karl Rove. Later that evening, Mitt has a discussion with his wife, Anne...

Mitt: Wow, I think we can actually win this.
Anne: It looks so. Polling is good.
Mitt: That it is. I was honestly expecting us to be down in Texas by a bit, but we're slightly leading there. Both Ohio and Texas are purely based on turnout, while Rhode Island and Vermont are in the bag.
Anne: We need to have the Bush family campaigning heavily in Texas for you. They hold a lot of weight there. Maybe get Voinovich stumping more in Ohio as well.
Mitt: Of course, we also need Boehner out there more, though he's been a rockstar thus far.

John Boozman stumps with Romney in Texas...

I'm proud to be from the state of Arkansas where Mike Huckabee will be for the next four years! I know firsthand what the effects of a Huckabee administration are, and while they wouldn't be as terrible as a Warner administration, they certainly wouldn't put America in a bright future, specifically on economics. However, one candidate will give America a bright future, economically and morally. And that candidate is Mitt Romney!

So Ann Coulter has a questionable piece up on Yahoo! today...

It's headline is certainly an attention grabber, and one of the first things you see if you type in "Patty Murray". After reading it, trying to be as un-biased as personal, and then viewing her Wikipedia as well as her own website to counter the hackery of Coulter's post, I have a question:

Do a lot of people out there question Murray's intelligence level, or am I the only one? I mean, I'm not calling her stupid, but I'm not going to call her smart either.

From all the crazy polling, I'd consider this race to still be a toss-up/lean Republican.

Mitt Romney is the candidate for America! His experience in the private sector shows that he knows what this country needs to do to keep jobs in America and lower our unemployment numbers. And despite the fact that Huckabee thinks that knowledge is unimportant, it is, even more, arguably, then spending years as Governor, signing tax increases 87 times!
- John Boehner in Cleveland

The choice is clear: Vote for Mitt. If you believe conservative economic principles will get our economy going, vote for Mitt. If you also believe social issues are a deep concern and want a pro-life President, vote for Mitt. And if you think we should be deporting, not rewarding, illegal immigrants, by all means, vote for Mitt Romney!

At a rally in Providence, Rhode Island, both former Senator Lincoln Chaffee and Vermont Governor Jim Douglas endorse Romney...

It's time for the Northeast to rise again and bring common-sense values back to the White House. We're both confident of Mitt's capabilities, and I have enjoyed seeing him work. I look forward to voting for him, and hope all of you do too!

30% Obama

27% Hillary

Please can that not happen.
I'd love this, as it'd give Hillary a more realistic shot at winning.

Mitt Romney announces a tour of Ohio, where he will be campaigning with Congressmember's Jean Schmidt, Michele Bachmann, Rob Portman, and John Boehner. They will be holding rallies in Cleveland, Columbus, Toledo, Dayton, and Cincinatti, where Romney plans on addressing key concerns to Ohio voters, such as social security, medicare, and the economy.

After that, Romney will make several stops in Texas with Rep. Chet Edwards, Kay Granger, and Joe Barton in Houston, Austin, Haskell, and Wichita Falls, where he will heavily emphasize social issues as well as his experience in the private sector.

Look, I understand the Governor isn't exactly "all-powerful" in the Mideast, but, really, something needs to be done about this.

Perhaps a special election is too drastic for a two-month long term, but how about the supplemental idea of having a list prepared by the party that previously occupied the seat?
I think any party would be lucky to find 3 people willing. I normally only get 1-2 applicants, and sometimes had to go out recruiting people for the Assembly. If someone really wants in, they'll get in. For example, if you're elected to the Assembly, I'll try and get someone similar to you politically in there. But that's going to be hard, and I'll basically pick whoever wants it and who I think would do good, which is usually one person, maybe two if I'm lucky.

Great, now everyone's going to have to rethink their strategy for this election. Tongue

Marokai, political differences aside, you've been one of the best and most active Vice President's Atlasia has ever had. You should be extremely proud of yourself.
11417  Election Archive / 2010 Senatorial Election Polls / Re: WI: Rasmussen: Feingold just about done on: September 30, 2010, 02:46:05 pm
I wouldn't call this race over, but this is certainly encouraging for Republicans. That being said, Feingold is one of the better liberals in the Senate, and I wish we could get rid of someone else, like Schumer, instead.
11418  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Which poster best fits the title of "Moderate Hero"? on: September 30, 2010, 12:57:15 pm
Definitely tmth who is always desperately trying to portray himself as a moderate voice of reason when all he really cares about is the game of politics and not actual policy.

He always supports "moderate" candidates no matter how awful they are (Murkowski) and goes all apocalyptic when they don't win. He then labels more conservative or liberal politicians as EXTREME, when he has his own extreme views on abortion and has expressed doubts about Obama's religion, birthplace, etc.

Basically I don't think he really knows what he believes, but likes to think of himself as MODERATE because it sounds nice and smart and doesn't offend people. That to me = moderate hero.

No offense lol

I just openly said I'm too conservative to be a moderate, so I don't know why you posted this.

Please give an example of when I go all apocalyptic when a moderate loses. Please also give an example of when I label more conservative or liberal politicians as extreme. You're not going to find any examples, because I don't do either of those. And if thinking a woman should only be able to have an abortion in cases of rape, incest, or when the mother's life is in danger is considered extreme, half of America is extreme.

I've also openly stated I believe Obama was born in America, which is a lot better than some on here. I don't think he's a Christian, but I don't think he's a Muslim either.

I know exactly what I believe, and I stand by those beliefs. I'm on this site to educate myself about political issues, and that's what it has done. Clearly you are only on this site to make baseless and pathetic attacks on indviduals. I do take offense, because you're statements were completely false and had no serious evidence backing them up.

Senate: Coats will defeat Ellsworth by 10-15 points
IN-08: Buchshon will defeat Van Haaften by 10-15 points
IN-09: Young will defeat Hill by 0-5 points
IN-02: Walorski will defeat Donnelly by 0-5 points

Republicans will comfortably sweep all statewide positions. They will have between 55-60 seats in the House and will gain a few in the Senate, giving them super-majorities.
11420  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: Mideast Assembly Thread on: September 30, 2010, 10:30:31 am
First, I want to congratulate Big Bad Fab on getting confirmed! Smiley I'm sure he'll do great.

Now, I have to stand with Inks on the "Let the People Choose! Act". This position has very few responsibilities, and making appointments is one of it's most exciting roles. I think that the citizens should consider when voting the appointments the Governor will make, and if you feel they will make bad appointments, don't vote for them.

On top of that, we have a short session, so the public will be able to have a say on the appointee in less than 2 months anyways. If we had more Assemblymen (not that I support that), this may be more acceptable, but when we only have 5, we really need to have all 5. It may be a little more simpler if we had a Lt. Governor who would be able to step in and break ties, but the people have spoken strongly against it.

With all that in mind, I will seriously consider vetoeing this bill if it makes it to my desk.

Romney responds at a rally in Ohio...

Like I've said before, I'm accepting the fact that Huckabee has decided to further divide the party. I'm confident that I will clinch the nomination within the next few days. It's just sad that Governor Huckabee is risking losing his integrity, and people are being to question whether or not he has the party's best interests at heart. Damaging our presumptive nominee in February and March will not help us one bit.

Towards the future, I'm going to continue my message of hope and change. We have the winning campaign, and millions of Americans are getting on board. I look forward to facing Governor Warner in the fall.

Jean Schmidt comments on Huckabee's stay in the race at a station in Cincinnati...

It's really disappointing. I always thought Mike Huckabee was a good man who had the party's best interest at heart. Quite frankly, I no longer think that. Romney has a huge delegate lead, popular vote lead, and is about 100 delegates away from clinching the nomination. Huckabee has shown he has absolutely no integrity by staying in this race, and this has ruined any chances of him ever getting my support if he ever decided to run again. It's simply embarrassing for the party. I feel sorry for his supporters, as they're supporting such a pathetic candidate who can't even admit defeat.
- Jean Schmidt

At a rally up in Dayton, Ohio, Mitt Romney makes the following comment...

We asked Governor Huckabee to drop out of this race because it's time for this party to come together. Unfortunately, the Governor does not take defeat well and has chosen a route that will continue to divide the party. We'll let the people decide here in Ohio, and around the nation, on March 4th, whether or not Huckabee deserves to stay in this race. I look forward to clinching the nomination on March 4th. Thank you all, and God Bless!

Jeff Bingaman announces that he will be conducting a tour, titled "Hearing the American Voice". Bingaman will mainly tour the Southwest where he will mainly listen to the concerns and problems of Americans and offer his solutions.

I'm doing this for a simple reason: The government has become out of touch with the American people. It's time we listen to them and start working for them again, not ourselves or our party.

My friends, we now need around 100 delegates left before we clinch the nomination. Even sub-par performances in all remaining states will guarantee us the nomination! Tonight, I declare victory for conservatism! Americans have reason for hope again, because this this campaign is just getting started with excitement. We also won a huge victory in Hawaii tonight! Tonight, I call on Governor Huckabee to withdraw from this race. I have great admiration and respect for the man, despite the negative campaign we both have ran recently. But now is the time for this party to unity, and he must step aside.
- Mitt Romney
