The Governorships are important because of re-districting on account of the 2010 census (among other reasons).
Election Day cannot come soon enough.
I posted this as a one stop shopping for the election. You can look up individual races via Real Clear Politics. And, one can be assured that they will keep it up to date.
They throw in stupid polls at RCP.
Looking like hickgate or Machin going Terminator is hurting us in WVA...most likely both.....if they fall for his act then maybe the casting call was right...
WA...Murray up 15 in a ELWAY poll...uh no...but we will see
As for Maine Gov..it was a hoot watching the dem jump up and down about the republican disrespect of Obama then get caught mocking Bush in a pic...
If the Senate and House delegates are split in an electoral Vote dispute, the Govenor decides.
Republicans will snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
Conservatives peaked too soon.
All this talk of Republican “landslide” sounds like McCain/Palin, 2008.
I’ll be happy if they eke out a majority in the House.
I can't wait.
Thank you for the links!!
I’ve made a tentaive decision. I just hope it’s not like 1998, where high hopes faded.
election is now in some states with early voting and absentee ballots.
C'mon record setting nationwide blizzard!
I just voted this morning; first day possible in Illinois - all Republican except for one state level education position. Prefer not being accused of being a ‘party line’ voter by Lefty idiots.
“Conservatives peaked too soon.” That is what they said six monthsthree months two months two weeks ago
We have hardly peaked too soon.
GOP still has multiple, high-impact cards to play:
1. Congress left town and the RATS have a tax increase for all Americans in the pipeline - they did nothing to stop it. Not 1 in 20 Americans yet understands this.
3. Medicare Advantage being dessimated by BOcare - millions of seniors not yet aware.
4. No social security COLA increase next year because the RATS wasted all the bread on the stimulus.
All of this, and more.
It seems to be a source of information.
Turn on your filters and hold your nose as you need to...
Do you know of another site?
These 5 races are real close and we need to win them all to get to 51: Washington, West Virginia, Nevada, Colorado and
Illinois. It’s a tall order; our candidates aren’t very popular.
I’m assuming we lose California, Connecticut & Delaware.
Today it is:
26 GOP; 9 Toss ups; 15 Democrat
That means there was a change of two from yesterday into the toss up column.
It is my opinion that toss ups would favor the GOP given the activity of TEA Party and TEA Party Express, as well as just general voter dissatisfaction...
GOP 26; Toss Ups 10; Democrat 14
That is a change of a projected Democrat to now a Toss Up from yesterday...
Projected House of Representatives:
GOP 211; Toss Ups 40; Democrats 184 That is a change of a projected Democratic seat changing to Toss Ups.
I think the Toss Ups favor the Republicans at this point -- especially if there is bad weather on November 2.
The Senate is unchanged...
I wonder if what will happen after the Nevada debate tonight.
Will Harry Reid suffer from a severe case of foot-in-mouth disease during the debate tonight? I certainly hope so...
The GOP is inching towards majority control (212 seats projected GOP now) with only 218 needed for majority.
That means the GOP needs only a handful of the toss up seats to gain the majority, and winning over half the toss ups will give them a a strong majority...
Looks like a GOP tsunami this year in the House with a GOP tsunami in the Senate in 2012 (with the possibility of a Sarah Palin presidency!)
Just my opinion though...
