Iowa's a purple/tilt-blue state. How the heck.........

2010: R+31.05 (Grassley vote share 64.35%)
2004: R+42.31 (Grassley vote share 70.18%)
1998: R+37.92 (Grassley vote share 68.41%)
1992: R+42.41 (Grassley vote share 69.61%)
1986: R+32.46 (Grassley vote share 66.04%)
1980: R+7.95   (Grassley vote share 7.95%)

Question: How on earth has Grassley managed to run up Oklahoma-like margins in a purpleish-blue state?

A Mason-Dixon poll on this race (and others throughout the South) would clear the air nicely....   

After their final definitive poll of Florida in 2012... that showed Romney +6... I'm not that comfortable having too much faith in them.

So it missed Florida -it made a mistake.  Can you name a polling company that doesn't?  But compared to some I have seen here, Mason-Dixon is still among the top pollsters in the country.

Obama +3 in Minnesota; ended up being +8.
Obama +2 in Wisconsin; ended up being +7.
Obama +7 in Connecticut; ended up being +17.

MD used to be good.  Now they're just so-so.

And how about senatorial races?

I'm not a fan of "muh balanced budgets" in the game or real life. Instead of a constitutional mandate to balance budgets in this game, I would rather leave this to the discretion of our lawmakers. Not only does this allow them much more flexibility with spending, it also creates an interesting gameplay dynamic by producing possible deficits and debts. This could create possible tension in elections and be an interesting issue, as one Assembly might have to "clean up the mess" left by another.

Forcing the Northeast government to issue balanced budgets in a document as concrete as our constitution is ridiculous.

So one of my co workers smells, he has this odor with him and it even kind of stays behind when he leaves. There is a chair in the break room that he always sits in and it smells, I actually accidentally sat in it on Friday. The elevator smells after he is on it. I don't really want to say anything surely he knows it? He is a really nice person. He is very overweight like 300 plus pounds.

You could always buy a stick of deodorant and put it on his desk and write "from a friend" on it.

Don't do this.

Well, I might as well continue the partisan trend in these predictions:

Tillis - 50%
Hagan-47%
Haugh - 3%

While I generally don't like ad hominem attacks and they would certainly be wrong in this case, all that Griffin noted was that Matt's sudden decision to run for the Senate seems odd in spite of his poor record in office over the past few weeks. While he might very well have more time on his hands, why not improve his current performance as Representative before declaring for the Senate, or declaring for the Senate?

As for Sawx, I understand he wanted to run for Governor, but his switch to TPP seems odd. Of course he has the right to do so, but he also had the option to run in a Labor primary against Barnes which he had a good shot of winning. In addition, his sudden decisions to change half his political views and bizarre, clout-less attacks on Barnes's campaign aren't really helping with my current view of his campaign.

(I consider both these gentlemen friends for the record- I am speaking from my post as a voter and officeholder in the game)

As for LeBron's plagiarism accusations, they simply don't make sense. Bills are shared all the time, often with some changes, between legislators, regions, and the federal government all the time in Atlasia. What he's trying to imply here is a non-issue.

I genuinely hope its nothing serious and none of his family is sick/dying. I have no idea what it could be, but I'm thinking it's his gay cousin. Usually health issued are revealed fairly quickly.
