Are we really at the point where people want polls they don't like kept out of the database? The only thing that should be excluded is internals. Not every single poll is accurate, but they still get entered regardless.

Considering his voting record, why doesn't John Barrow just switch parties already?  He can have that seat as long as he wants it without continually worrying about whether the next GOP challenger can finally topple him... 

Maybe he actually has integrity and isn't worried about opportunism? Besides, it's not like he's conservative enough to actually be a Republican.

I've seen racist types online use it a lot and it's one of their favorite phrases.

While true, that makes as much sense as saying "God bless our troops" is racist because racists online say it.

"God bless the troops" is a general statement that isn't an insult, so that's quite different. Racists tend to have their own terms and vocabulary for certain people and things.

So any insult a racist uses is inherently racist? Are you aiming to break a "Most consecutive idiotic posts" record this weekend?

There's no need to call names. I didn't say any insult (and you ought to know insults, since you just insulted me), I'm talking about specific insults and I've seen that insult used on social media by several people who also post monkey pictures to refer to Obama, as well as other racist things.

So what kind of specific insults and why does this specific insult classify as racist? The only logic you have used is that racists have used it online.

I don't have time educate you. Use your head and ask yourself why anyone would call a person who is an attorney and earned their own money a moocher? That's not exactly an accurate description, unless you are using a ridiculous stereotype.

A 1% lead is barely surviving, so coattails are out of the question. LePage isn't even secure, 1% is hardly a secure lead.

It's more disturbing that Ernst was stealing from a county to give her father money. Who does that? Oops, a Republican, that's who.

Uhm, Landmark has some of the most accurate polls in Georgia, so this is not good news for Perdue. She's closing fast and that's a very good sign.

...Nunn has led in literally all of their polls. She's going backwards in this. Thanks for calling in.

After the primary runoff, Perdue surged, but Nunn has steadily reclaimed the lead. At this stage, she can continue to move upward.

compare apples to apples. Landmark has shown the Nunn lead decreasing from 7 to 3 to now 0. Clearly the race is moving toward perdue.

Other polling has shown Perdue's lead down, though, so the race has shifted away from him some.

That post makes zero sense compared to the polls we are talking about here.

Perdue called Nunn a terrorist supporter and polls taken since that ad ran have shown the race shifting away from Perdue.

He was not in good shape before this, since the Chamber of Commerce opted to endorse Peters over him and his campaign responded by criticizing the Chamber. But, that doesn't even make the fuss charts compared to sexual harassment.

LePage is a racist extremist, so what is so great about him being in the lead?

The fact that he is not Michaud

Michaud is a mainstream Democrat, so it's not like LePage is a balanced alternative or anything. Apparently, Republicans will support anyone, regardless of how extreme they are.

Just curious, whom would you consider an "extreme" Democrat?  Do they even exist, or extremism only reserved for Republicans?.

Republicans are the only ones who put up extremist candidates for office consistently, you don't see Democrats nominating people like Cynthia McKinney (who isn't a Democrat anymore) for anything. It's not hard to see the difference.

If they have Braley up, then I'm inclined to believe he's easing back into the driver's seat. This is a conservative organization.

Whatever happened to your mantra that right-wing organizations don't poll well?

As for the poll, throw it in the average and keep Iowa at Leans R.

Right-wing organizations don't tend to release favorable polling to Democrats, which is why Romney ended up be shell shocked at his loss. If this is the best a right-wing organization can show in these races, then I don't see that as a big plus for either of these Republican candidates.

Love being black has nothing to do with her under performance, her problem came from the fact that she bought into hype and ran as a celebrity candidate. If you go back to 2012, she was over matched by Matheson when they had a debate. Her goal is more about making history and gaining recognition, not actually going to the House to be a productive member.

http://www.politico.com/story/2014/10/carl-demaio-sexual-harassment-bribery-claims-111720.html

Quote
A high-profile Southern California congressional race descended into chaos on Wednesday when Republican Carl DeMaio was peppered with questions from reporters about whether he had sexually harassed and then intimidated and attempted to bribe a former campaign staffer.

At a news conference at his campaign headquarters, DeMaio called the allegations “absolutely untrue” and a “complete lie.” He added that authorities had questioned him and his campaign staff about the harassment claims, concluded they were unfounded and closed the case. DeMaio, 40, said the accuser concocted the story after he was identified as a “prime suspect” in a break-in at DeMaio’s campaign office last spring.

Not the sort of story a candidate wants out in the final stretch.

123  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2014 Senatorial Election Polls / Re: Fox Polls for KS, AK, AR, KY CO on: October 08, 2014, 07:10:04 pm
Take many seats, please. It's the huge number of undecideds that make these polls suspect, seeing as no one else is showing such high undecideds anymore. Even if there is a Democratic pollster on staff, pollsters are still paid to do a job and pushing leaners was not part of the job.

So I guess the recent Survey USA (11%), Marist (15%) and Suffolk (13%) Kansas polls, which showed HIGHER undecideds than this Fox News Poll (10%) are even more suspect than the Fox News poll?  Or are those polls okay because they show the candidate you want in the lead and this one doesn't?

Plenty of pollsters are showing undecideds in the 7-13% range right now, like these Fox News polls, especially in Kansas.  Look it up in the database if you don't believe me.  Or just find another thing "wrong" about the poll to discredit it because you don't like the result, like you always do.

Once again, I have to tell you to calm down, because you just go into some angry mode. At this stage, I find it hard to believe any of the candidates is actually in the 30s at this point. I'm not discrediting the polls because I don't like the result.

Self-parody is not amusing.

Agreed. So stop posting.

I think it is you that should stop posting. You are totally annoying and no one likes you, so move on.

I know times are tough in the Orman Orbit but don't get desperate, Dr.

I'm not worried about Orman winning, I think he will. I'm just calling out your foolishness. Unlike some, I won't have a breakdown over losing an election, it's not that serious to me....

I'm so glad "Nobody likes you" is your go to like when you aren't taking things too seriously.

That was merely for entertainment, nothing more.

Quinnipiac's poll was wildly inflated, and it's pretty old by now. I think Fox News is playing games here, as most other pollster are not showing this many undecideds. They pulled a stunt with the LA-Sen poll.

Yeah, I'm sure the Democratic pollster Anderson Robbins Research who is part of the bipartisan duo that polls for Fox News is allowing Fox News to play games with polls by not reporting undecideds.  After all, they have no incentive to show the Democratic candidates up.

You just can't take polls that show your candidates down at face value, can you?

Take many seats, please. It's the huge number of undecideds that make these polls suspect, seeing as no one else is showing such high undecideds anymore. Even if there is a Democratic pollster on staff, pollsters are still paid to do a job and pushing leaners was not part of the job.
