Time to panic now? 3 weeks to go, and Begich, Braley and Udall are all trailing.

Udall isn't "reasonably popular", he's at 39/52 approval.

Wow really? Is it just Obama-induced backlash against the (D) brand or something about him specifically?
78  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Colorado Megathread: Buck-ing the trend on: October 13, 2014, 12:19:45 pm
I really have a hard time seeing Udall losing this. It just doesn't square up with anything that we've seen from Colorado over the past decade. If an appointed incumbent who barely survived a primary challenge could squeak out a win in friggin' 2010, why in the world is a reasonably popular 6-year incumbent struggling so much? Is Gardner some kind of political star? Or does Udall's campaign really suck?

Well, the Republican is leading in this one, so they probably won't take it back like they did with the KS poll. Roll Eyes

Do neither of you know what "ultra-leftism" means? It doesn't just mean "very left-wing".

Does it have something to do with dialectical materialism?

Kill yourself.

My my, someone's in a mood tonight...

Haha, looks like he deleted the post.

A shining example of self-restraint/personal responsibility.
Or a Moderator deleted it

Don't let the facts get in the way of a good joke. Tongue

The glorious right-wing economy minister wants to gut unemployment insurance (this is the same rich moron who said that workers in some plant were 'illiterates'): http://www.lemonde.fr/politique/article/2014/10/12/macron-relance-le-debat-de-la-reforme-de-l-assurance-chomage_4504807_823448.html

Can this government be any more of a joke?

A shame the "frondeurs" just abstained Sad

Well, if they had voted against and the clown show had lost, then we would be having snap elections which would inevitably result in a cohabitation with the other clown show, the UMP.

That could actually be better in some ways.

What a dumb question. If Mitch McConnell had a D next to his name, he would have been a crucial ally to Obama, rather than the evil mastermind that managed to stall most of his agenda. So obviously there would be no problem at all.

This will especially be the case if he grows some balls and puts boots on the ground in Iraq to fight and destroy ISIS.

Yes, he really needs to do that. If ISIS keeps taking over the Middle East while we do nothing, Obama's legacy will be seriously tarnished.

@Antonio: Pretty sure I could pick out a random two years from Clinton that did just as much.

I'm pretty sure you can't.

Anything interesting happen?

Labor reform passed in the Senate in a confidence vote, Renzi is relieved, Berlusconi and Grillo make their usual antics... So no, nothing worthwhile.

Bleah, moderate heroism is strong in this thread.

Pressler (at least the Pressler of today) seems to be far to the left of Weiland.

I highly doubt that.

A poll showing an Ernst lead is being celebrated as a Braley victory why?

The last Selzer poll had her up 6, so clearly things have improved somewhat.

The poll had Obama's approval at 45%. They probably retracted it because it is clearly a bad sample.

Retracting polls because you don't like their results is just plain wrong. There is no excuse.

Facts didn't like the results either: there's no way Obama is at 45% approval in Kansas. He's lucky to have that rating in PA right now!

That's not how polling works.

Ah, I understand. But disputing other findings in polls is still enough reason to throw them out, right?

No, a poll should never been thrown out because of what its results show. It can be thrown out because it uses a crappy methodology or because it was done on behalf of a partisan cause, but disregarding a polls because its results "don't look right" is inherently stupid.

I think we are misunderstanding each other, my friend. I'm not saying the President's (inaccurate) approval rating per this poll is a reason to exclude it from the database but I do think it's further proof that the poll is junk. 

I'm not claiming the opposite. Actually, I doubt anyone on the forum actually thinks Orman is leading by 12. Still, just like we included those crappy polls that showed Brown ahead in NH, we should include this one.

Romney named one of his kids "Tagg", while Palin gave her kids names like "Track" and "Trig".

What would happen if the two families married into each other?  Would we get kids with names like Frugg and Twigg?


Trick? Trag? Tack?
