There was no problem with that ad, and in my opinion, any backfire was minimal.
I agree with this. Voters are used to negative ads at this point, and I don't think there has been much significant backlash towards Murray because of that ad.

Negative ads are nothing new.

It's basic campaign strategy- introduce yourself and give the voters a favorable impression of you, then go all-out negative on the other guy.

And tmthforu- you know very well I follow that Wasington seat very intently.

This is the race I think might turn ala Wisconsin over the next two weeks or so.  I'm not predicting a 10 point win, but I think the third state wide race might be the charm for Rossi.  Washington has elected Republcians and nearly did for governor in 2004.  Murray may be one of the last swept away by the wave much as Talent and Allen were in 2006.

You have to love Rasmussen.

Look at their past three polls-

Rossi +3
Murray +5
Rossi +1

First a swing of 8 for Murray, now a swing of 6 for Rossi.

This race has swung a total of 14 points in 29 days.

Whatever you say, Rasmussen...

One can't say they pay attention to polling if they ridicule/ignore any pollster completely.

Hypocrite. Cheesy

Ha.  The thing George Allen got swept away in was his own macaca.  The poetic justice was highly amusing.

Right, and Talent was never as far behind as Feingold is now. The race was a practical toss-up to the very end.

Keep in mind, Rossi was up on Gregoire in most late polls in 2004 and lost.  This is a senatorial race, which is tougher for the minority party to win.

Murray survives 52-47%, my guess.

Rossi actually sounds like a pretty decent person.

It all sepends what you mean by "decent".

Went into real estate with lobbyists when he was in the legislature, and taught seminars for investors on how to profit off of other's foreclosures.

In my mind, he was never decent, and still isn't.

I think Murray will survive 52-48, roughly.

Negative ads aren't new, no. Entirely untruthful ads, however, are fairly unique.

Well, unless you add in that one Grayson ran.

Ugh, I was really hoping you wouldn't find the forum part of this site...

If you paid any attention to the race if Washington, you would know that Murray started an ad blitz and had the momentum on her side. But then she ran a terribly inaccurate ad, which has put Rossi back on top, but narrowly.

You can believe that but the Everett Herald, whose circulation area includes the largest Boeing factory in the state, has endorsed Sen. Murray.  And the editorial specifically mentions her strong support for Boeing's tanker bid:

Quote
Murray has shown toughness that her critics are quick to overlook. She’s been a tenacious defender of veterans, aggressively pushing the Veterans Administration to meet its health-care commitments and improve suicide-prevention efforts. She’s been a leader on improving the security of U.S. ports in the wake of 9/11, teaming with Republican Susan Collins of Maine. When it comes to supporting Boeing’s Air Force tanker bid against Airbus, no voice in Congress has been stronger than Murray’s.
