Mia Love surges to double digit lead in Utah-04

Posted by  ▪  November 2, 2012
I certainly don’t want to get overly confident, but this is very good news, via The Salt Lake Tribune: For 12 years, Jim Matheson has been a political escape artist, managing to wiggle free from every trap the Utah Republicans have thrown his way. But after six successful elections, his charmed political run…

Matt Doheny now tied in NY-21

Posted by  ▪  November 1, 2012
I was hoping for but not quite expecting this race to tighten in one of our Upstate NY Operation Counterweight races. Republican Matt Doheny was behind double digits in an early September poll, the last public poll in the District.  Now it is a virtual tie. This could be a chance to get…

SuperPAC joins fray for Akin in Missouri

Posted by  ▪  November 1, 2012
A SuperPAC which backed Sarah Steeleman in the primary has entered the race the national Republicans have abandoned. This video (h/t Reboot Congress) strikes what may be a winning message — you don’t have to agree “with everything he says,” but you can agree Claire McCaskill should not be on Congress. I’m not…

Romney showing up in unexpected places (Updates)

Posted by  ▪  November 1, 2012
Trying to get as many of the reader photos out as possible before the election, since they have expiration dates. This is from commenter LukeHandCool: My wife took this picture of a Romney banner on one of the fraternities at USC when she was dropping off clothes for our daughter. Our daughter says the…

Push Operation Demoralize aside

Posted by  ▪  November 1, 2012
Averaging turnout models over the last four 2-year cycles, gets different results in the polling than the doom being peddled by Operation Demoralize. I don’t know if it’s right or wrong, but given that Operation Demoralize is in full swing, anything that keeps spirits up for the final push through the finish…

Direct citizen action

Posted by  ▪  November 1, 2012
I previously posted about the pro-Republican  television ad being run by Thomas Peterffy with his own money.  I also posted about the Mini-PAC running ads on cable television in black areas of Ohio. I’ve noticed a number of people taking direct action, putting their own money where their mouths are directly, rather…

I refuse to get completely sidetracked

Posted by  ▪  November 1, 2012
by Chris Christie.  We need to focus on getting out the vote big time.  Sandy has been the perfect political storm for Obama.  It’s like calling three consecutive time outs before we were about to kick the winning field goal. We care about New Jersey and the election. The notion that there is…

The death of polling industry credibility

Posted by  ▪  October 31, 2012
The polling this year is insane.  Same state, same time period, wildly different results from poll to poll. Rasmussen has Romney up 2 in Wisconsin; Marquette has Obama up 8. The Boston Globe (UNH Polling) has Scott Brown up 2; Suffolk has Elizabeth Warren up 7. And so on, and so…
