    Who wins next week?

    Considering how pathetic both major parties are...not America, that is for sure.


    And once again, another poll that does not allow for anything but left or right leaning Americans. Would it kill people to include an 'other' option?

    Good morning Perotista.

    I don't think it is even close this election cycle. Real Clear is really conservative about moving states to one side or the other and they already have the GOP gaining big. And today I read an article at Weekly Standard that Gillespie is closing the gap with Warner. My jaw dropped. One particular polling group has the gap at 4. The same poling group that were the only ones who predicted Eric Cantor was in trouble. When Gillespie entered the race he was down 29 against Warner. Now the state could very well be in play. Unbelievable. Also the desperation of the Democrats reeks with all the race baiting ads coming from Nunn, Landrieu, and others. And the unions in Illinois endorsed the Democrat but gave their money to the Libertarian candidate to siphon off votes from the Republican candidate is another example of the crap that is going on in places where the left shouldn't be struggling. Tuesday is going to be something to watch. I need to pick up some popcorn for the event oh and some....tiny bubbles in the wine....

    Nothing like rose colored glasses. I was going to give you a rundown. But since I was scheduled to post my 1 November Senate update tomorrow, I decided to do so today. This is how I see things.

    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.

    Rose colored glasses? Not me. Thanks for sharing how you see things. While polls can tell a lot, there aren't enough to gauge some events that just happened in the week leading up to the election. Take KS where Roberts is struggling. One of the reasons is Roberts doesn't have the support of Conservatives. They wanted Dr. Milton Wolf in the primary. This week Dr. Wolf came out and endorsed Roberts on Mark Levin's show probably one of the most conservative radio shows. It got a good amount of coverage. He told the viewers it was important to vote for Roberts because it help to ensure the gavel is removed from Harry Reid's hand if for nothing else. Wolf pulls a lot of weight with conservative voters in KS. His endorsement can only help Roberts in getting conservatives to hold their nose and vote for him. Last night was the final debate between Sheehan and Brown. On the very same day of the debate a poll out of nowhere not consistent with any other had Sheehan up by 8. Really? Even with that poll averaged in she is up by 2. And then for the last two days Ms. Mary in Louisianna has gotten nothing but flack for playing the race and gender card calling her constituients and all the South racists and sexists. Not any polls out yet to show the damage of that idiotic move either.

    Yeah, things can change drastically over the last few days. As Yogi Berra said, "It ain't over till its over." Kansas, Iowa, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Georgia, perhaps a couple more could swing differently from what is expected today. I have always expected Louisiana to go to a runoff, then Cassidy winning the runoff by around 10 points.

    As an aside to all of this, if the GOP does take the senate and Orman decides to caucus with the Republicans, it would not surprise me one bit if King from Maine also decides to caucus with the Republicans instead of the Democrats. Everyone likes to be in the majority. If this comes to pass, then keep an eye on Joe Manchin from West Virginia. One of a very few of a dying breed left, a conservative Democrat.

    It wouldn't surprise me to see Manchin switch parties before 2016. West Virginia is looking pretty red about now. I think we all know why. The coal industry has been devastated by Obama's EPA on steroids.
    I just hit Drudge and they have a story developing. Seems the AP is claiming early voting is favoring Republicans by 10%. There is also another story where there seems to be some Democratic Governors in New England states finding themselves in competitive races. Man this is getting better by the hour.

    Our Democratic governor here in NH is in the fight for her life. So is our Democratic Senator who is fighting Scott Brown.

    HI Tres! Yes I noticed that. I also read where those who hosted last night's debate apologized to Brown and there was a story that stated even the Huffo Puffo had to acknowledge repeating falsehoods about Brown. Do you know anything about that?

    The NY Times says the GOP has a 68% CHANCE of taking the Senate so they are saying it could go either way but it is more likely that the GOP wins. You can't say they lied if the Dems win either though.

    I was there Vesper, and holy ****, I almost choked when it happened!

    I was with the Brown camp, and James Pindell who is our NH political guy on our ABC affiliate asked Brown about a particular county here in NH. Brown answered his question, talking about the tourism industry and skiing, and Pindell interrupted him and said "You're talking about the North Country" (which is what we call our uppermost counties) and Brown said "I'm talking about anything north of Concord" to which Pindell replied "Sullivan County is west of Concord". Yes it is....but it's also NORTH of Concord.

    Pindell then went on to ask Shaheen the same question, and she tossed out 4 or 5 things about Sullivan County and the economics there.

    Two things:

    Pindell tried to make it look like Brown didn't know the geography of NH - and he failed.
    It was obvious to people that it was a set up, given how quickly Shaheen mentioned some Sullivan County facts there is no way she would know off the top of her head.

    Pindell had to apologize to Brown in the situation room after the debate, on his Twitter account, and all day long here in NH.

    By the way, Brown SMOKED her last night (in spite of what Pindell did).

    We all in the Brown camp were so ****ing mad when it happened. I was like "Pindell's an asshole!!!"
