    But he has killed countless Arabs without due process in drone strikes. Does that count?

    RealClearPolitics - Election 2014 - New Hampshire Senate - Brown vs. Shaheen

    Brown has reduced Shaheen's lead from double digits in August to the high single digits in October to now the low single digits in October. The main problem now is that Shaheen has 49% in 3 of the polls and 48% in two others. Also there are only 3-4% in the undecided column which Brown would have to win almost all of them to prevail with Shaheen's 2-3 point lead.

    So the only question to be answered is how firm is that 48/49% saying they will vote for ShaHeen and can Brown change their minds? New Hampshire is looking close. But Brown faces real long odds when considering only a couple of percent are still left in the undecided column.
    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.

    She is on the defensive in a very big way. She's relying on 2 things in her incessant attack ads: the old standby "war on women" crap, and his "big oil" connection. Lame at best. She's getting panned all over the state for her awful and baseless attacks - and she's looking like a whiny bitch at the same time.
    Its interesting that after 6 years, this is what she's been reduced to-hiding from the head of her party and shrieking about a war on women.
    Liberalism never delivers and only thrives on baseless attacks and other ignorance.

    Understood, though the recent changes suggest more may be coming, how many of those polls have been taken since her comments in the op? The next 10 days will be interesting to watch.

    My guess would be none although CNN's poll was from 18-21 and ARG from 19-22, both were released today so it takes a few days to conduct a poll, at least another day to compile it and usually another day to release it. So most polls are 2-3 days old at least when they are released.

    I was thinking while I munch on some popcorn. Even polls which are published on the 3rd and 4th of November, the day before and on election will be two-three days old. What I am saying even the polls released to today are two, three, four days old. The CNN poll on New Hampshire is a prime example, it covers the period 18-21 Oct, it's results were released on 24 Oct. So that poll tells us approximately where things stood on 21 Oct, not on the 22nd, 23rd or today.

    A slim lead of 3 points that Shaheen had on the 21st may have evaporated by today, the 24th. But all we have to go on is how things stood three days ago.

    True, but the trend of her losing her lead was already established, I doubt this helped. No doubt we can find out in a few days.

    I'll keep an eye on it. Heck I have been keeping an eye on all the senate races. My home state of Georgia is becoming more interesting as each day passes. RCP has placed Georgia into the Democratic column. Sabato and 538 have place Georgia into the runoff category and the rest have Georgia has a tossup.
