More Democratic emails today proclaiming the end of the world. Nancy Pelosi sent me one with the following line:
I just left a staff meeting where my team told me that if Democrats aren’t able to get the air support they need, we could lose and lose big. Even in places like California and New York.
Also today, the DCCC got Gloria Steinem to send an email with the following line:
Instead they’re relying on tired, sexist tropes to appeal to us. Women will only vote if voting is like dating, getting married, or breaking up. At least that’s what Republicans seem to think. This election is our chance to show them that their relentless sexism will not stand.
The big poll this morning has to be the new one from Quinnipiac University for the state of Colorado, where they now show Cory Gardner up by 5%.
US SENATE – COLORADO (Quinnipiac)
Cory Gardner (R) 46%
Mark Udall (D-inc) 41%
Steve Shogan (I) 5%
This poll was done October 15-21 among 974 likely voters. At this point in Georgia, the whole goal of he Republicans has to be to keep Michelle Nunn from reaching 50%. We have yet another poll, this time from CNN and Opinion Research, showing Nunn with a lead over Perdue.
US SENATE – GEORGIA (CNN/ORC)
Michelle Nunn (D) 47%
David Perdue (R) 44%
Amanda Swafford (L) 5%
We’re quite literally running out of money to pay our staff, feed volunteers, and put ads on the air.
Dave — you’ve been there every step of the way with us. Now, in these final 12 days we need one last big push to get us over the finish line. Can you chip in whatever you can right now?
So if I don’t give them money, their volunteers won’t eat? Oh well. In Massachusetts, The Boston Globe how has Charlie Baker taking an incredible 9% lead over Martha Coakley.
US SENATE – NEW HAMPSHIRE (NEC)
Scott Brown (R) 48%
Jeanne Shaheen (D-inc) 47%
US SENATE – NEW HAMPSHIRE (PPP)
Jeanne Shaheen (D-inc) 49%
Scott Brown (R) 45%
The NEC poll was done October 16th among 461 likely voters. The PPP poll was done October 20-21 among 764 likely voters. Voter/Consumer Research has come out with a new poll for the US Senate race in Kentucky that has Mitch McConnell up by 8%.
Democrats have another message in this morning’s email:
Subject: It’s over. It’s done.
It’s over. It’s done.
We have no ideas left.
Dave — we don’t want to miss out on this opportunity to finally defeat the Republicans. So we’re putting all of our hopes in you answering President Obama’s call-to-action today.
Seriously, we’re at the end of our rope here. You’re our only hope.
If I am their only hope, then they are in some trouble. Another day, another random state poll from Monmouth University. This time it is the state of Iowa.
US SENATE – IOWA (Monmouth)
Joni Ernst (R) 47%
Bruce Braley (D) 46%
This poll was done October 18-21 among 423 likely voters.
