Anti-Mourdock polling games in Indiana? (Update – Rasmussen has 3 pt spread, not 11 like Howey)

Anti-Mourdock polling games in Indiana? (Update – Rasmussen has 3 pt spread, not 11 like Howey)

Posted by
11/2/2012 at 2:02pm
A poll was released yesterday by the Howey Politics website in Indiana purporting to show Democrat Joe Donnelly up by 11 points over Richard Mourdock. That seemed improbable, even with the controversy over Mourdock’s recent comments, as Indiana is a heavily Republican-voting state, will vote strongly for Romney, and all other polling…

David Cicilline, the former Mayor of Providence who was “untruthful” about Providence’s finances during his successful 2010 congressional campaign, is in trouble.  The electoral momentum has shifted clearly to Republican Brendan Doherty, who has attacked Cicilline’s character relentlessly and successfully. Yesterday the tainted and endangered Cicilline had a unity photo op with several big name…

Cook County president Toni Preckwinkle has been on a mission to punish legal gunowners of late. Preckwinkle, a mentor to President Obama, made headlines earlier this year when she said that “Reagan deserves a special place in hell.” After decreeing in a Wednesday press conference that a “gun court” would be established by…

I have received a good reaction to my post, If Nate Silver cannot be wrong, how can he be right?, in which I call non-statistical BS to Nate Silvermania. Dan McLaughlin, On Polling Models, Skewed & Unskewed examines Nate Silvermania, and links to me for a non-numbers reason, which is good because I’m…

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…

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…

Posted by
11/1/2012 at 5:30pm
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…

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…

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…
