I've decided I don't want to leave Montana. It is the state I love, and I just can not "leave" it. This is my home.
Montana loves you too, Teddy. Smiley

None of them are likely, because Democrats won't win a CDin Nebraska. I'd probably go wiht 2, though.

For Bachmann to win in Minnesota, Obama would have to be losing in an epic landslide and a lot more Senate seats would be lost by the Democrats. How did the most popular US Senator lose to one of the most controversial Congressmembers?

February 15th, 2010:

Today, Senator Evan Bayh announced that he would not be seeking reelection.

"After all these years, my passion for service to my fellow citizens is undiminished, but my desire to do so by serving in Congress has waned."



The Cook Political Report instantly moves this seat from "Likely Democratic" to "Lean Republican". Evan Bayh had a small lead against former Senator Dan Coats, who is the expected winner of the May primary, but polling suggested that any other Democratic candidate would lose by double-digits.

Bayh is the fifth Democratic Senator not seeking reelection. He joins Byron Dorgan (N.D.), Ted Kaufman (Del.), Daniel Inouye (Haw), and Roland Burris (Ill.) on the sidelines. Six Republicans are retiring: Sens. Kit Bond (Mo.), George Lemieux (Fla.), Judd Gregg (N.H.), George Voinovich (Ohio), Sam Brownback (Kans.) and Jim Bunning (Ky.).

Indiana Polling:
Evan Bayh: 44%
Dan Coats: 41%

Evan Bayh: 46%
John Hostettler: 39%

Brad Ellsworth: 35%
Dan Coats: 46%

Brad Ellsworth: 37%
John Hostettler: 45%

And for the second year in a row, I finish a respectable third...

What's disappointing is, last year, I had to fight to get into the playoffs after starting off like, 1-5. This year, I led almost the entire season, but faltered in the weeks. Curse you Michael Vick! If I had managed to get to the Championship game, I would have prevailed, but that bastard had to score 30+ points in the fourth quarter. Angry

Oh well, CHIEFS ARE IN THE PLAYOFFS!!! Cheesy

If Democrats think their pain will end after 2012, they're wrong. The class of 2008 is just dreadful, overall.

I've no problem with any of the recruits save for the freak who fakes brain tumors for attention. The only thing I think is worth pointing out is the obvious. If they were JCP or UDL members, you wouldn't be cheering them on. If they joined the Populares, Rowan wouldn't be defending them. The more members the better, so long as they hopefully turn out as productive and useful members of the game.

Back in the days of DWTL, I could understand your explanation. However, nowadays, when a new liberal joins, such as liberalkid, who joined in the Mideast, they get hello's from both sides, and at least don't have conservatives bashing them. However, almost every single time a new member joins the RPP/POP, while they may get one nice liberal, almost every one of them recieves a snidely remark from the left. While the conservative wing of Atlasia might be responsible for a small portion of this issue, I'd argue that the left has contributed much more to it.

6 new members in one month... Roll Eyes

     Half of whom are already established members with lengthy histories in Atlasia & a fourth of whom has been posting on the forum for ten months now, albeit at a rather leisurely pace. I thought that such was an acceptable mode of recruitment.
Only if they're a liberal, or sometimes a moderate.Wink

CNN national poll of Republicans:

Would you be likely to support the following candidates for the 2012 GOP nomination?:

Palin
likely 49%
not likely 51%

my taste in a nominee has always matched that of the primary electorate, and my changes in attitude (switching between candidates) are usually a couple of months ahead of the primary electorate

Example:  In 2000, I was an early supporter of McCain until he started attacking the Religious Right, then I switched to Bush.  In 2004, I was with McCain early, then tried on several of the other candidates, then ended up back with McCain.

if the jmfcst-as-bellwether pattern holds in 2012, Pence should be considered the GOP favorite at this point in time and Palin should be expected to flame out when push comes to shove. 

Although I was an early supporter of Palin for VP in 2008, even before McCain picked her, she has proven not up to the task and should spend her time on GOTV efforts like she did in the 2008 Georgia Senate run-off campaign.


once again, jmfcst is the GOP bellwether
McCain didn't run in 2004.

I'm willing to move to the Pacific to break the JCP stranglehold on the region... who is with me!

Ummm... should I be advocating for JCP members to move to the Midwest to "break the UDL stranglehold on the region"?

You are the JCP senator from the Midwest, amiright?

Who'd most likely lose his seat if a UDL candidate ran against him, yeah.
Also add that he was appointed, not elected.

Well hello, everyone. Smiley

I am Tobias from Germany/Poland and I would love to take part in this Elections Simulation. Smiley
However, I am afraid that I am not very familiar with the game mechanics, even though I have read the introduction. But this will soon change, I think.
I decide to participate in the Northeast state politics.

Tobias Nowacki

Northeast state

First off, welcome to this site! Smiley Unfortunately you must meet certain (ridiculous) requirements in order to join this game. You'll need to have at least 75 posts and be on this forum for 15 days. Sad But please come back when you meet those requirements, as we'd love to have you!

Tmthforu, may I have your word that as Task Force member you're trying to recruit various people from various positions, not just right-wingers for your party?
I just posted regarding this matter in the Task Force thread.
11718  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: To my fellow left wingers on: December 28, 2010, 10:37:03 am
We are not a "dominant force in Atlasia". We currently are, but we were a minority no so far ago ...and a couple of zombies could be enough to give them back power.

Thomas, your argumentation is basically the same most right-wingers have. "OMG Atlasia is soooooo left-wing, we need to balance that by recruiting zombies !!" They just can't stand the fact that Atlasia is the way it is, and instead of they adapting to Atlasia they want Atlasia to adapt to them.
I think it's unfair for you to automatically label all new members of Atlasia as zombies. The RPP has made solid efforts to get new members involved, such as Cathcon in the Mideast, who was recently elected into the Assembly. We keep in contact with our new members, and we're currently in the process of urging a couple of them to run for office on the regional level.
11719  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Presidential Task Force on New Member Recruitment on: December 28, 2010, 10:32:05 am
It would be nicer if they weren't all RPPers.
I can't speak for the other members of this force, but I have personally messaged members both on the left, right, and middle.

Obviously. I might even try and find someway to help his campaign from Indiana, as his chance of winning this are at least somewhat realistic.
11723  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Alvin Greene running for office again on: December 27, 2010, 10:05:35 pm
If Greene can win the primary, he could be swept into office in the by-election. Does anyone know what district he's running in?
District 64. The Democratic candidate who won (may she RIP) ran unopposed in 2010, if that tells you anything about the makeup of this district.

No. Crazily enough, here in Indiana, they're wanting to pass a law to ban cell phone use for everyone, not just truck drivers, unless ICOE.
