    Interesting polls considering there is a bit of time to go.... still no big change to the make-up of either body.

    I'll stay with- use a pencil, 2010 was the high water mark of the TP movement, 2012 rolled back on them at a time when it seemed every CON out there was convinced they would sweep the senate and white house.

    DeMint and Rove spent a great deal of money and had quite the hissy fit when their efforts failed. Now Rove is at it again, the GOP is going to have a full run at this.

    And it looks like most are saying it isn't going to be a sweep, but a few CONs might be a bit butt hurt over everyone laughing at the miserable turnout in DC and huffing and puffing for a bit.

    Lol... 3 in 10 voters say they will vote to oppose Obama? So... 3 in 5 Republicans will vote against Obama... I'm shocked really.

    Oops. I knew that - Perotista is gonna kill me for that mistake. I was thinking of the 2016 presidential election and the Senators that will be up for reelection at that time. *slapping myself*

    To be fair, zero percent of voters plan to vote for Obama in 2016.

    To point, the 2012 elections...

(So arrogantly was Demint predicting the take-over, and he refused to endorse Willard for President so he could concentrate on winning back the Senate, that when he failed he tucked tail and fled to a CON think tank)

    Even in the House the GOP lost seats, 8, I do believe, so maybe you should use a pencil...
    Obama was successful in hiding his scandals, and Obamacare fail until after the election. He would not have won otherwise.

    2010 was in direct response to the actions of the left, as 2014 will be.

    Howdy Pol, North Carolina, Tillis won the Republican nomination and is the best candidate to challenge Hagan in November out of those who were vying for the nomination. Tillis lead by a single point in a poll conducted a couple of days after the NC primary. That means it is a dead heat, either could win and neither has an advantage.

    As for the rest, I think West Virginia, Montana and South Dakota are fairly sure pick ups for the GOP, Louisiana probably a 60% change for a pick up there. After those four it gets dicey. NC I covered, Alaska and Arkansas are no better than 50-50 with the Democrat in each probably having a slight edge as of today. But to the Republican's dismay, Georgia may send a Democrat to Washington and negate one of the other pick ups. Michelle Nunn has a 50-50 shot of winning Chambliss's seat, perhaps more, perhaps less depending on whom the Republican nominee will be. Now in Kentucky I would say McConnell has only a 55% of retaining his seat there.

    If you remember back to 2012, around 6 months out I told the presidency would be decided in the east. If Romney didn't win Virginia, Ohio and Florida to go to bed, Obama would be re-elected. By how certain states in the east again go, You can pretty know about who will control the senate before you head into the Central Time Zone. Look east again Pol, look east.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    The thing here is not so much how Republicans or Democrats will vote, we pretty much know that. It is how independents will vote. If 31% of indies are sending a message by voting against Democratic candidate vs. only 11% who will be voting for Democratic in a show of support, That means just to break even with independents that the Democrats must capture 39 out of the remain 58% of indies just to break even in this voting group. That is a very tough task. But when the democrats are starting out with a larger base, 31% vs. 24% for Republicans, they do not have to win the independent vote.

    Ahhhh the CON excuse machine in action.... hiding scandals, Obamacare 'fail' and the 'culprit' beats Mr. Businessman...

    I remember the CONs trying to blame Obama for everything to include Dr. Pepper 10 and they LOST ground in 2012.

    What actions on the 'left' are you referring to now? the TPs seem at a loss to come up with a real crowd pleaser- I'd say they shot there ACA wad in 2010 and the thrill is gone... benghazi isn't going to work, the BLM/Bundy debacle isn't much.... the VA mess is horrid (I am a vet) but it will not burn up the chain of command anymore than Iran/Contra did. But keep swinging.

    Now back on topic from the CON fluffer doodle... been on the Right wingnut bloggersphere for 6, 6, 6 months- a Col. had 1 MILLION RSVPs and now every excuse in the book is being used to deflect from an ABJECT failure of the CON extremists.

    oh, that was THIS weekend....

    Im sorry, did we know about Obama's numerous scandals until after the election? Outside of Benghazi-which was still very recent, no we did not.
    Was Obamacare sticker shock yet widespread? No, it was not.

    Like I said, if what we know now (and have for the last year) was known then it would have been quite different. Remember, both sides didn't have the muscle of the IRS working against it.
