    AP-GfK Poll: Most expect GOP victory in November

    AP-GfK Poll: Most expect GOP victory in November

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Two weeks before Election Day, most of the nation's likely voters now expect the Republican Party to take control of the U.S. Senate, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. And by a growing margin, they say that's the outcome they'd like to see.

    But the survey suggests many will cringe when they cast those ballots. Most likely voters have a negative impression of the Republican Party, and 7 in 10 are dissatisfied by its leaders in Congress.

    The Democrats win few accolades themselves. Impressions of the party among likely voters have grown more negative in the past month. In fact, Democrats are more trusted than the GOP on just two of nine top issues, the poll showed.

    The economy remains the top issue for likely voters — 91 percent call it "extremely" or "very" important. And the GOP has increased its advantage as the party more trusted to handle the issue to a margin of 39 percent to 31 percent.
    Thanks Obama.

    I already voted. Too bad I couldn't put a Dem on his or her ass.

    Not real enthused with some of our current leaders on the Right but, certainly tired of the Left's ignorant leadership.

    Mornin TB. BO was just on Al Sharpton's Radio Show and like he told Sharpton......one has to remember with the Demos avoiding him. That it is in States he lost. But the Bottomline is they ran on his platform.

    Well he is okay at arrogance with those outside of Chicago.....here it is a different story.

    Yeah I heard clips of him talking to the good Reverend. His narcissism was on full display. He can't stand that people aren't groveling at his feet, crying when he walks into a room, and worshipping him.

    Priebus came out 2 days ago saying the Repubs will Absolutely win the Senate. They are not just looking at 6 seats.

    He says the GOP has the ground game this time.....and they are still surging. Which the MS media has validated.

    Much as I did not understand the GOP's strategy in 2012, I do not understand the Democratic strategy now. Why they are not pounding the successes of the last 6 years (growing economy, more jobs, lower deficits, advancement of civil rights, etc.) is beyond me. It's like they are so terrified to run on their own record of successes.

    They deserve to lose this election based on terrible campaigning.

    Agree 100%.

    Republicans are running to fear and Democrats are running afraid.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    Larry Sabato: GOP Could Win Up to Eight Senate Seats

    Republicans have a "strong and increasing chance to control the next Senate," says Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia's Center for Politics, projecting that the GOP could take up to eight seats on Nov. 4. "Our projection remains a five- to eight-seat Republican gain in the Senate, and with less than three weeks to go, we would much rather be holding the cards Republicans have been dealt versus the ones dealt to the Democrats as both sides play for a Senate majority," Sabato writes in his latest "Crystal Ball" analysis.

    Sabato said he still believes that the math makes it likely Republicans will hold the majority by one to three seats, but it's not yet clear which seats those will be. And as Democrats are focusing on protecting their incumbents rather than going after Republican seats, "that gives us further confidence that the Republicans will in fact add more seats to their majority, but probably not significantly more," said Sabato. "Our outlook remains a six-to-nine seat Republican net gain."

    Eight seats would return the GOP to 242 seats, but a 13-seat gain would bring it to 247 seats, the largest majority since the 1928 election, said Sabato. Overall, Crystal Ball lists 232 races as leaning Republican, 189 Democratic, and 14 as tossups or leans. Of the latter 14, three are held by Republicans and 11 by Democrats.

    New Poll Shows Democrats Have Never Been Lower.....


    The American people have never registered a lower opinion of the Democratic Party, according to a new ABC News/Washington Post Poll. Just 39 percent of respondents told pollsters they have a favorable opinion of the Democratic Party, compared to 51 percent of respondents who view the Democrats unfavorably. No poll, including Gallup, New York Times, and CBS News numbers (with data going back to 1984), has ever shown the Democrats so disliked.



    Republicans are even more unpopular, with just 33 percent of adults admitting to liking the party, but they have been lower and the narrow six-point gap between the two parties is close to the smallest it has been in years. Looking inside the numbers, it appears that Democratic support is crumbling for the same reason Republican favorability has been low for so long: the base is unhappy with the party. The WaPo poll also showed a strong advantage for Republicans on the generic congressional ballot. A full 50 percent of likely voters said they were planning to vote for Republican candidates this November, compared to just 43 percent who said they planned to vote for Democrats.....snip~

    Face it.....the American People can't stand the Democrats. Now is the time to strike. I say we label them the US version of the MB.
