Wendy Davis is a desperate punk. She'll get hers in due time.

Get hers? For doing what? Running for Governor?

Pat Quinn won this district in 2010 of all years, so that tells you how partisan it is in it's reconfiguration.

Unfortunately, no.

With the additional money being put in by the DSCC and Perdue's outsourcing comment, it's crazy to count Nunn out. She's got a better chance than Terri Lynn Land, who was highly overrated this cycle.

The white liberal comment is unnecessary. Knock off your racism, it's not funny.

It's disturbing to call elected politicians kings, very scary indeed that someone would view politicians like that. That aside, Brownback will still lose, 42% is horrible for an incumbent and seldom does an incumbent win with a number like that.

Uhm, one statement does not negate the other, genius. If Braley cleans up with the early vote and is practically tied in polling going into election day, then he has already won. In 2012, Obama won the early vote big in several places and went on to win outright.

Stop being so argumentative, it's annoying.

That's not how it actually works.

Those votes have to be counted on election night along with the rest of the votes.

But, we'll see who wins on election day. If it's Braley (and it will be), I'm going to directly tell you, "I told you so".

Braley was up big with people that already voted, so he's probably already won.

What an astonishing theory given that the ballots cannot legally be counted right now.

What an astonishingly clueless response. At this point, if he's received a good amount of early vote, it makes it harder for Ernst to make up the difference on election day. You are so ignorant.

So we've gone from 'probably already won' to 'received a good amount of the early vote' for a candidate that has 0 votes and is trailing in almost every poll.

OK!

Mr. Pot, meet Mr. Kettle. Early votes are blue. Get it through your skull

And they have to be counted on election night, whether Republican want them to be or not. Republicans rely more on election day vote, so Ernst will have to really clean up to offset the early vote.

Ernst will get at least 48%, that much is evident, but that last couple of points are less likely to materialize. Braley was up big with people that already voted, so he's probably already won.

Its usually a good sign when the other side starts unskewing the polls.

It's not unskewing like you and your people did in 2012. The demographic samples actually matter, that's why Gallup flubbed up so badly last cycle.

Try again.

I did not unskew in 2012. I admit to doing so in 2010, and having seen the results of that election, learned my lesson not to do so in 2012 or this election.

As others have mentioned before, SurveyUSA has had a tendency to give accurate top-line results despite weird crosstabs. How exactly is unskewing based on racial breakdowns that you happen to disagree with somehow better than unskewing based on partisan breakdowns that you happen to disagree with?

It's not unskewing, it's based on how previous polls have worked. PPP was able to get accurate results in 2012, because they used a demographic sample that included more minorities, when other pollsters expected those groups not to show up. Party ID is fluid, unlike demographics. This has been discussed before.

A note to krazen and his little family here, the Colorado poll only has a 6% sample of Hispanics, which is below the actually number that will vote. That makes a big difference.

Gardner will do much better with whites than a mere +6. That makes a big difference.

He's not going to win 90% of whites. You have to realize that whites in Colorado don't vote the same as they do in the south.

Holy mathematical strawman!

Judging from who I was responding to, I figured that was what you believed.

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

In case you forgot, this represented a big improvement from the last poll. And considering that he's up big with those who have already voted, he's probably already won.
94  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2014 Senatorial Election Polls / Re: KS-Rassy: Orman+12 on: October 12, 2014, 11:37:57 am
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.
95  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2014 House Election Polls / Re: GA-12: Barrow +2 in GOP poll on: October 12, 2014, 11:17:59 am
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.
