    No, I'm referring to the registered republican named Donald Sterling.

    Obama’s approval rating fell to 41 percent, down from 46 percent through the first three months of the year and the lowest of his presidency in Post-ABC News polls. Just 42 percent approve of his handling of the economy, 37 percent approve of how he is handling the implementation of the Affordable Care Act and 34 percent approve of his handling of the situation involving Ukraine and Russia.

    As in the 2012 election I would suggest focusing on having good candidates rather than on how beatable the Democrats are. Just a friendly suggestion.

    Of course he did. The rich give to whatever party can scratch their back. In California that would probably be a lot of Democrats. That doesn't mean he was a liberal.

    That would be a nice change of pace.

    You're absolutely right - particularly in winnable Senate races, of which there are many.

    Because you think the GOP's candidates are good or because you think a box of tic tacs could beat the Democrats? If the former then the Republicans may very likely succeed. If the latter then you could likely be looking at another 2012.

    Except for the vagaries of pure democracy, the Republicans could have owned the Senate since 2010, not just 2012 - they have self-destructed in two straight Senate election cycles.

    And per your article here's this:



    Frankly both parties suck and I won't be voting for either of them.
    Wouldn't it be interesting to find out what those main problems are in the eyes of those polled? Social issues motivate the left and if the majority surveyed classify social issues as the role of the Federal Govt. then you are going to get what you see here. Just goes to show the true ignorance of the left who believes it is the role of the Federal Govt. to legislate social issues rather than the state and local governments

    To me the number one issue that trumps every other is the economy. With a strong economy the social issues will solve themselves but you will only see liberals diverting from the economy to those social issues. Democrats have been in control of the economic policies since 2007 and look at what we have today, high unemployment/under employment, stagnant economic growth, massive increase in debt, and Obamacare.

    This is exactly what you get with poorly a informed electorate who elected a community agitator that had zero leadership skills or executive experience.
