    Was Obama's name on the Ballot Tuesday?

    Weprin had heavy support from unions, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), Democratic National Committee head, Florida Congresswoman, Debbie Wasserman Shultz, and an endorsement from the New York Times. It was alleged that George Soros had put $100,000 into Weprin’s campaign coffers. Turner had endorsements from Pete King, US House Homeland Security Committee Chairman and Hizzoner, Ed Koch. They both showed up at Turner’s victory celebration. Koch in particular made his endorsement of Turner a referendum on Obama’s mishandling of support for Israel. Watch a You Tube video of his endorsement of Turner. The New York Times, in the pre-election editorial criticized Koch for his Israel stand and endorsed Weprin. Turner had also made his election a referendum about Obama’s domestic policy failures and performance.

    Given your propensity for lying, I hope you'll understand why you'll have to produce a link to said exit polls since I don't believe a word you say.

    Yep, or why else would the Democrat Candidate get so much outside support?

    And he ran as an Independent. Who knows how many Independent voters who would might have otherwsie voted for the Democrat had there not been an Inedependent in the race, voted for the Independent? Still, they didn't vote for the Republican

    But Obama wasn't the ballot, was he? The district likes Sen. Schumer and Schumer supports Obama, so I don't understand your reasoning.

    Like it or not the reality is the Republicans won a District that hasn't elected a Republican in almost 90 years. Turner as was pointed out made is election a referendum about obama and won. Spin it any way you want.We will find out in Nov. 2012 the real referendum on Obama. His JAR right now isn't looking good and his economic policy isn't looking good either. The results will be on the ballot in 2012 just like I believe they were on the ballot in NY 9

    48-43 was NY-26. The (R) quit in NY-23.

    I'm guessing I'm not the first person in this thread to point out NY-23 which in November of 2009 went to the Democrat for the first time in 137 years ... How well did that foretell the election to be held one year later?

    And which of those two will be eliminated after redistricting?
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
