    Each election is distinct. And it's an historic reality that the American people on both sides often equate the sitting President's shortcomings with the party as a whole. So it isn't just a right nor a left issue, and it would be hard to assume based on history that people on the left don't/won't throw in the Democratic party as a whole with Obama's shortcoming.

    Unless something drastically changes, Shaheen is looking pretty safe.
    I live here and am very active in elections here. Trust me when I tell you, she should have her re-election in the bag at this point given that this state has swung very much off center and to the left.

    Brown hasn't run any ads here as he hasn't even declared an intent to run. I personally don't think he'll win even if he does run - his gun stance is offputting to the 2nd Amendment people here.

    And the anti-Shaheen ads run here 24/7.

    Yeah, but unless the race tightens at least down to single digits and the polls stop giving Shaheen 50% of the vote I am not going to pay all that much attention to New Hampshire. That doesn't mean it won't happen. Take Iowa for example, back in November the Democrat had a double digit lead, but that dropped down to 3 points in December. But back in February Braley, the Democrat lead climbed back up in the double digits, but today his lead is back down to 3-4 points, within the margin of error.

    There will be some states that have wild swings like this, other will remain fairly constant. But for the time being, I would chalk up New Hampshire as a Democratic Hold.
    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.

    Firstly, I never intamated that my response was a right vs. left issue...You did. Secondly, I have no way of measuring if the short comings of a President is viewed by the American electorate as a failure of the party as a whole. It may very well be that opposition partisan have that view[as I indicated], but I would have no way of measuring if that is true for the electorate as a whole.

    if it is your contention that past elections prove you out...sobeit.

    My apologies. I guess your reference to "the right" in that post I copied meant some other "right", not the one that implies a partisan side that isn't the left.
