Earlier this month I reported on how Republican Carl DeMaio edged out incumbent Democrat Scott Peters in a district that is rated as a toss-up by most polling agencies. A week after their win, the DeMaio campaign was hit with a serious October surprise when the campaign’s former policy director, Todd Bosnich,...

It’s almost over.

The election cycle, that is. It’s been a bizarre one, and I think we’re all about ready for a little peace and quiet from our phones, front doors, and inboxes.

But before we put the ads, e-mails, and stump speeches behind us (we still have a few days...

What’s one to do when it looks like the midterms aren’t going their way?

Stealing Republican lawn signs is always an option, as long as you don’t get caught. One Delaware Democrat wasn’t so lucky.

We’ve written extensively about Democrats’ troubles this election cycle, and how Republicans have reason to be confident (although not overly so) heading into Tuesday’s midterm elections. Most of the polling and analysis has focused on Republican chances to take the Senate, but recent reports show that Democrats are also scrambling to...

To be fair, Senator Kay Hagan wasn’t the only Democrat who said people would be able to keep their healthcare plans and doctors under Obamacare. Lots of Democrats made that claim, including Obama and many of his supporters in the media.

It’s funny how they’re so tongue tied now. Kay Hagan was...

Are Democrats at risk of losing the most reliable voting base, Blacks?

Or, just as bad for Democrats, having low turnout?

This video may just be an anecdote, or it may be the sign of something larger happening.

You don’t need polls to tell you that there is a fearful, ornery mood out there.

But it is confirmed by the polls, and Democrats are the primary recipients of that anger.

We wrote about this a week ago, Election 2014: America “completely out of control” and “women feel unsafe”.
