    Worth noting, however, is that the poll is of registered rather than likely voters, which will lean slightly D, and that "hoping the opposition really screws up" is not a terribly good strategy. Gonna be funny to watch Democrats begin to swing against ole O-Care.

    Imagine how much more impactful a strong Republican move against the ACA would have been if we hadn't behaved so foolishly before, during, and in the immediate aftermath of the shutdown.

    In the middle of the Obamatastrophe, the most corrupt politician known to man beat your guy for governor of VA. If you can't beat McAulife, you're in really bad shape. If you can't beat him while Obama is being outed as a liar, your party is on life support.

    Your party is too stupid to nominate electable candidates right now. Why that is beats me. But...it is what it is.

    Exactly because people like you really don't care about results, results don't matter in your world for it is all about ideology and personal feelings until those feelings start hitting you in the pocket book which they will. Republicans lost in Va. because the vote was split between a Republican and Libertarian. That is how Democrats continue to win elections, getting less than 50% of the vote and funding competition against the Republicans via a third party

    It was textbook incompetence. So...yes. It was a joke. But, in time, the system will beging to work. Costs will quit rising, and all the other problems will begin to settle down. When people get insurance who never had it, especially those with pre-existing conditions, all the naysayers will be outed as fools.

    There's at least one constant in the universe, libertarian candidates not getting elected in enough quantities to make a difference. Actually there's two things, they complain more than they accomplish.

    I don't care why your party split the vote. Losing serves you all right.

    The Dems got their **** together. They consolidated voters from Blue dogs to progressives. The GOP is too busy purging "RINOs" and infighting.

    Welcome to electoral hell. If McAulife winning does nothing else, it should, at the very least, show you you're there.

    What this shows is that some people always vote ideology over principle. Your hatred of the Republican Party is built out of ignorance and specific brainwashing as evidenced by your posts. You have no idea what the economic results are or how they were generated. You have no understanding of basic civics nor the role of the Federal Govt. as created by the Founders. Unfortunately there are millions just like you. When the Obama economic results hit you in the pocketbook you will finally get it, hope it isn't too late.

    This is an incredibly accurate article that I wonder if Obamabots have the guts to read. My bet is they will attack the author and ignore the content as usual.

    it seems to be a contest of who is disliked/distrusted the least.

    The country is not a majority of social conservatives and until the Republicans learn to put social conservative issues on the backburner, I do believe they will continue to lose elections.
    Yeah. Except that a wide majority favors the current Republican bill to limit abortion past 20 weeks to rape, incest, and life-of-the-mother, and women and hispanics are more likely to support it.

    I agree. It was those Republican economic policies which made the inevatability of certain elements of the welfare state necessary in the first place. When people can only see pure ideology and ignore the practical effects of their policies - they are very poor politicians indeed.
