    Re: Mother Jones Shocker: 'New Poll Shows Democratic Incumbents in Big Trouble'

    I'm not sure the difference between Obama and Romney. Obama's privatized health care initiative is nearly identical to Romney's done in MA. Is it not market friendly enough as in we need less oversight on the insurance industry??? I'm trying to figure out what people are expecting.

    Well if we're gonna go by that parameter, the 47% statistic is way off. And even some.of those people vote Republican religiously.

    It's your turn to make up something even worse about Republicans.

    Congress Dives, Anti-Incumbency Soars in Deep Post-Shutdown Criticism - ABC News

    Cruz's antics during the shutdown are every bit as damaging to the GOP. Don't kid yourself, Zimmer. The ABC article says GOP incumbent approval is down; it doesn't mention that GOP incumbent approval was much lower to begin with. Selective reading of polling data isn't good for you.

    Democrats' net disapproval in that poll was 61 percent; Republicans was 77.
    People hate politicians and hate Congress - except their own representatives. It's always been that way.

Otherwise, Christie believes in only one thing - himself - and he will do 180s whenever it suits him.

    His expertise is in backstabbing for personal gain. After giving Romney's nomination speech, he soon went on to boycott all Romney rallies to instead give raving praises of Obama and to curse all Republicans - as in 100% - in Congress. If Christie were to be the Republican nominee there would be no reason for a November election as the Democrats already won.

    Thank you for your input. I take it Governor Christie has little chance of gaining your vote.

    It's your turn to make up something even worse about Republicans.
    Here is something to look at, the latest NBC poll as of 31 Oct.

    National Survey Results
    Q1 Do you approve or disapprove of President
    Barack Obama's job performance?
    Approve .................................................. ........ 46%
    Disapprove........................................ .............. 50%
    Not sure .................................................. ........ 4%
    Q2 Do you approve or disapprove of the job
    Congressional Democrats are doing?
    Approve .................................................. ........ 40%
    Disapprove........................................ .............. 56%
    Not sure .................................................. ........ 4%
    Q3 Do you approve or disapprove of the job
    Congressional Republicans are doing?
    Approve .................................................. ........ 23%
    Disapprove........................................ .............. 72%
    Not sure .................................................. ........ 5%
    Q4 Do you approve or disapprove of the job
    Congress overall is doing?
    Approve .................................................. ........ 6%
    Disapprove........................................ .............. 87%
    Not sure .................................................. ........ 6%
    Q5 Do you approve or disapprove of the job your
    own member of Congress is doing?
    Approve .................................................. ........ 51%
    Disapprove........................................ .............. 39%
    Not sure .................................................. ........ 11%
    Q6 If there was an election for the U.S. House
    today, would you vote for the Democratic or
    Republican candidate from your district?
    Democrat .................................................. ...... 44%
    Republican........................................ .............. 38%
    Not sure .................................................. ........ 18%
    Q7 Who do you trust more to deal with the major
    issues facing the country: Barack Obama or
    Congressional Republicans?
    Barack Obama............................................. ... 45%
    Congressional Republicans ............................ 43%
    Not sure .................................................. ........ 12%
    Q8 Do you think the government shutdown was a
    good thing or bad thing for the country?
    Good thing .................................................. .... 25%
    Bad thing............................................. ............ 66%
    Not sure .................................................. ........ 9%
    Q9 Do you approve or disapprove of the Affordable
    Care Act?
    Approve .................................................. ........ 40%
    Disapprove........................................ .............. 49%
    Not sure .................................................. ........ 11%

    I think question 7 and question 9 are most interesting.
    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.

    Howdy Jack, Governor Christie is the only Republican at this time that stands a chance of defeating whom ever the Democrats nominate in 2016. The big reason is the Democrats huge advantage when it comes to the electoral college map. But time will tell, there will be many unforeseen events and issues rise between now and then.

    Greetings Pero.

    With the agreed caveat that it's still early, I share your view. If Repubs want to win then they will nominate Christie. If they would instead rather make some point besides winning then they will nominate a kamikaze.

    Exactly my way of thinking.
