Ossoff Still More Than 7% Away From 50% in GA

Two more polls for tomorrow’s election in Georgia from Clout Research and Emerson Research showing pretty similar results, although we have a different Republican in second place in the Clout Research poll.

US HOUSE – GEORGIA CD6 – SPECIAL (Emerson)
Jon Ossoff (D) 43%
Karen Handel (R) 17%
Bob Gray (R) 15%
Dan Moody (R) 9%
Judson Hill (R) 6%
Ron Slotin (D) 2%
David Abroms (R) 2%

US HOUSE – GEORGIA CD6 – SPECIAL (Clout)
Jon Ossoff (D) 41%
Bob Gray (R) 17%
Karen Handel (R) 15%
Judson Hill (R) 10%
Dan Moody (R) 9%
David Abroms (R) 3%
Ron Slotin (D) 1%

The Emerson poll was done April 13-15 and the Clout Research poll was done April 14-15 among likely voters. Donald Trump is jumping into the fray.

This should be fun tomorrow.

  2. Bitterlaw says:

    Second. Again. Curse you, SanDiegoCitizen!

  3. SanDiegoCitzen says:

    Ha Ha. Of course hitting the “i” instead of the “1” may be a sign of being a little to fast.

  4. Bitterlaw says:

    Comparing current politics to the politics of the old Solid South is fallacious because the local southern Democrat Party of yesteryear was vastly different from its current incarnation.

    Damn it. You mean the past isn’t necessarily prologue? Maybe the Senate elections of 1830, 1880 and 1926 don’t tell us much about the 2018 election? WTF, Wes. What can we believe in any more?

  5. SanDiegoCitzen says:

    “Wait a second. That can’t be true. Isn’t this about the time whoever is president is supposed to send money and food to North Korea to appease the fat, squatty dictator?”

    If anyone wonders who got us into the current crisis with North Korea, her first name is Hillary:

    “Yes, we need to go back to Hillary Clinton’s policy of “strategic patience”. As secretary of State, Clinton oversaw a hands-off approach to North Korea. Under a policy called “strategic patience,” the Obama administration refused to offer any new incentives to Pyongyang to induce it to return to nuclear-disarmament talks following the collapse of an attempted deal at the end of the Bush term. The North Koreans were infuriated, and more nuclear and missile tests ensued, along with open hostilities between North and South Korea in 2010.

    “In my view, ‘strategic patience’ was a polite term for sitting back and watching while North Korea continued to build up its nuclear weapons program,” said Matthew Bunn, a nuclear non-proliferation expert at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. “I thought it was a mistake from the beginning. But given Kim Jong Un’s behavior, his unwillingness to negotiate seriously about his nuclear weapons, and the failure of the ‘Leap Day’ deal [an interim pact in 2012], the Obama administration felt it did not have a lot of other plausible options.”

  6. Bitterlaw says:

    Just messin’ with Wes. He is right more than he is wrong. I prefer to focus on more important things. I am coaching 2 softball teams and have 3 game this weekend. YESSSSSSSS!!!

  7. jason says:

    I am sure there are probably still some moderate Dem voters in GA, but they are a dying breed.

    Like Tim? He loved Gore, Obama, and Hillary but seemed so moderate.”

    Tim was never a moderate. He hates wealth, success, merit, personal responsibility, and limited government. In addition he has a terminal case of double standards.

    That being said, you could have a discussion with him, he isn’t a moron like Proud ObamaCON.

    Second. Again. Curse you, SanDiegoCitizen!

    “Curse you”??

    I hate it when A-holes go wobbly.

  9. Chicon says:

    8 – is that wobbly, or wobbie?

  10. SanDiegoCitzen says:

    Hope everyone now understands, that thanks to Obama and Hillary’s passivity, Trump has no other option than do something decisive in North Korea. They are too close to being able to hit the U.S. with atomic/nuclear weapons if we do not act now.

  11. Tina says:

    How wobbly is wobbles?

  12. NYCmike says:

    Just to point out, no Republican or Democrat since 1953 have done anything in regards to No Korea. Clinton and Obama only made worse decisions than the rest of them.

  13. Phil says:

    So someone familiar with Georgia 6th tell me who would be the stronger runoff candidate, Handel or Gray?

  14. Proud Obamacon says:

    I see Big Joe was here talking something about Dixie Crats. Well Big Joe is the biggest Dixie Crat around! Fraud!!!

    Hardly matters, looks like are headed for nuclear war. Way to go, looooosahs. Yall elected a phucking psychopoath. Maybe there’s still hope if he can find some women to grope instead.

    NOT.MY.PRESIDENT

  15. SanDiegoCitzen says:

    “Just to point out, no Republican or Democrat since 1953 have done anything in regards to No Korea. Clinton and Obama only made worse decisions than the rest of them.”

    Nonsense. President Bill Clinton, using the services of his intrepid envoy Jimmy Carter, got North Korea to agree to “freeze and dismantle his nuclear program” in 1994. In exchange North Korea got all sorts of goodies. Since then North Korea has learned to rattle sabers and shake ever more goodies off the Christmas tree.

  16. SanDiegoCitzen says:

    14. “Hardly matters, looks like are headed for nuclear war. Way to go, looooosahs. Yall elected a phucking psychopoath.”

    Wow Obamaclown. Sounds like Reagan again, that horrible cowboy warmonger. Yet somehow he caused the Soviet Union and communism to collapse. You every hear of peace through strength?

  17. Phil says:

    Yeah, right. The nuclear war is on Trump. If Trump would only agree to play ball with that enlightened level headed statesman running North Korea.

    Just send them some more food and money and let Kim finish building an ICBM that can hit California. Sound Obama policy.

    Hmmmm…..California, come to think of it, that would be a lot of dead Democrats. Would cost them 55 electoral votes in 2020..except that we all know dead Democrats always vote anyway.

  18. Proud Obamacon says:

    Loooosah. This is not USSR where there was plenty of resistance. This is a megalomanic in NK and death loving ISIS terrorists. They dont care, they will nuke anyone and do anything. Obviously, your sexual fantasy Groper In Chief has not taken that into account! smh

  19. Phil says:

    Actually.. I wouldn’t want anything to happen to my friends Tina and San Diego so Trump needs to prevent the ICBM development.

  20. Proud Obamacon says:

    “Hmmmm…..California, come to think of it, that would be a lot of dead Democrats.”

    Good to know that Phil endorses the nuking of California.

    You are truly sick, absolutely sick. Apologize.

  21. Phil says:

    Don’t hold your breath, moonbat.

  22. SanDiegoCitzen says:

    20. Obamaclown. Why are you calling for Phil to apologize? Your the one who appears not not want to stop North Korea from getting nuclear weapons. The policies you advocate are what threatens California.

  23. Proud Obamacon says:

    Not surprised. Phil just keeps proving how much of a a$$hole he is. He would love to see Democrats nuked by North Korea. Good to know, you sick fukk.

  24. SanDiegoCitzen says:

    19. Besides your friends Phil, think of something more important in California — Food.

    California produces 99% of the U.S. almonds, walnuts and pistachios; 95% of its broccoli; 92% of its strawberries; 91% of its grapes; 90% of its tomatoes; and 74% of its lettuce. Plus 20% of the nation’s dairy is from California; and about 2/3 of the nations vegetables in the winter come from the Imperial Valley.”

    When you get away from the insanity of the L.A area and San Francisco Bay area, it is a pretty nice state.

  25. Bitterlaw says:

    Any form of A-hole is trademarked. Even a$$hole is stealing our brand.

  26. Proud Obamacon says:

    SDC, stop trying to defend Phil’s vile comment and you don’t know what went on behind the scenes. There’s plenty of talk that the US has infiltrated NK’s technologies and has been sabotaging its nuke program for years. Courtesy of your previous administration.

    I know you can’t see past your Democrat/Repug blinders. Trump does it all right, Obama did nothing right yada yada…

  27. SanDiegoCitzen says:

    23. Your the one advocating for policies that would allow North Korea to nuke California. Phil was just joking with you, he wants to protect California too.

    So are you saying just sit passively by and allow North Korea to develop the nuclear capacity to hit California?

  28. SanDiegoCitzen says:

    26. “you don’t know what went on behind the scenes”

    I know the risk that exists now, and it needs to be dealt with, and Trump will do so.

  29. Proud Obamacon says:

    “So are you saying just sit passively by and allow North Korea to develop the nuclear capacity to hit California?”

    Who’s sitting passively by? For the last 8 years, the Obama administration has been destroying the NK nuke program from within. You think you know it all don’t you.

  30. Proud Obamacon says:

    ” Trump will do so.”

    At what cost? Is it worth it to have nukes dropped on SK or Japan or even US? Would that satisfy you?

  31. PHIL says:

    So make up your mind, moonbat. You want N Korea stopped or Kim left alone to target California?

    Which is it, fruitcake?

  32. Proud Obamacon says:

    “You want N Korea stopped or Kim left alone to target California?”

    Another disingenuous comment. Neither. Yall just can’t see to read so I’ll write it a 3rd time. The US has been sabotaging NK’s nuke program for years. It obviously can’t be talked about, but its been happening. There are likely plenty of other covert operations designed to thwart NK while protecting our allies in the region and our west coast.

    You just want a show of force, and its going to cause this maniac to nuke Japan or SK.

  33. SanDiegoCitzen says:

    30. Their not at that point in their technology yet, and we want to put and end to it before they have the capability of doing it.

    Your statement is inconsistent with the claim that Obama was destroying the NK nuke program from within. Its not working yet, and half measures alone will not work in the future. Fully take it out.

  34. SanDiegoCitzen says:

    “The US has been sabotaging NK’s nuke program for years. It obviously can’t be talked about, but its been happening.”

    How do you know this??

  35. Proud Obamacon says:

    There’s plenty of circumstantial evidence to support this, and you know it. It just kills you to give Obama any credit for anything and that’s sad.

  36. SanDiegoCitzen says:

    “There’s plenty of circumstantial evidence to support this”

    What is the circumstantial evidence your referring too?

  37. Proud Obamacon says:

    Google it. Here’s one article
    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/04/world/asia/north-korea-missile-program-sabotage.html?_r=0

    Oh right, I forgot this is fake news. My bad…

  38. SanDiegoCitzen says:

    Major intelligence experts quoted throughout the world, including former Obama officials, state that North Korea is close to developing nuclear weapons.

    Believe there has been cyber warfare against this effort, and it might have included blowing-up the recent attempt at launching a missile several days ago, but is not sufficient. They can overcome cyber warfare, its time to take the whole program out.

  39. Phil says:

    We tried the not show of force angle. Worked great. Five nuclear tests later and missiles that can hit our allies in Japan…….

    Was working like a charm. Stopped Kim’s nuclear plans cold.

  40. Proud Obamacon says:

    Sure, and you’re plan will work even better. You’re ok with our allies being nuked?

  41. SanDiegoCitzen says:

    40. If we have been destroying North Korea’s nuclear capacity by cyber warfare, as you stated, how are they going to nuke our allies?

  42. SanDiegoCitzen says:

    Here is a BBC analysis of where North Korea is with the ability to use nuclear armed missiles. We are running out of time before they can use them.

    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-pacific-11813699

  43. Proud Obamacon says:

    We’ve been engaging in successful sabotage, but its not fully destroyed ..

    If you believe there has been cyber warfare against NK, and its been working, how is that consistent with advocating for policies that will end up with California being nuked?

  44. Phil says:

    Yep, cyber warfare won’t work indefinitely. Believing that is wishful thinking. Have to take out the program. Once they can deliver a nuke to the continental US it is too late……unless you want to live with this nutcase that can kill millions of Americans with a push of a button something has to be done.

    The dirty little secret is that the left is prepared to do nothing and live with that prospect. I’m not.

  45. Proud Obamacon says:

    “The dirty little secret is that the left is prepared to do nothing and live with that prospect. I’m not.”

    OK so now yall are acknowledging that there was active and successful sabotage going on. Ok slow, but we’re making progress here. Did anyone ever claim that cyber warfare alone would be enough? Yall been blustering about how OBama did nothing and how Dems want to sit around and do nothing. That’s what I’ve been responding to.

    If the time has come for additional measures, then fine. But isn’t it suspicious that as soon as your hero gets into office, there’s this sudden shift? Seems like he just wants to show off his muscles with no regard for what it means for our allies or what the long term consequences are.

    But at least yall acknowledge that you were wrong when you said nothing was being done or that Dem policies are advocating for the nuking of CA.

  46. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “Did anyone ever claim that cyber warfare alone would be enough?”

    Seems like we have come to agreement. Even some Obama officials are supporting what Trump is doing. It not usual for a past administration to defer to a new administration the handing of a critical issue. You do not want a shift of command in the middle of something sensitive.

  47. Big Joe says:

    #14 Proud-
    “I see Big Joe was here talking something about Dixie Crats. Well Big Joe is the biggest Dixie Crat around! Fraud!!!”

    OK I’m going to have an identity crisis. According to most here, I’m a communist who wants to destroy America. When I lived in NY, I was told I was a George W loving hardcore conservative. Now I’m a Dixiecrat. So confusing.

    Anyway, it appears that folks need to educate themselves on what a Dixiecrat is. Dixiecrats are extinct. Those who identified as Dixiecrats joined the GOP over a decades long period in the last century. Please do some research. Dixiecrats and their predecessors were pro-slavery, pro-segregation, and committed to states rights. They formed the core of the Democratic party prior to the Civil War and then switched over to the GOP mostly after the Civil Right Act was passed.

    LBJ said when signing the act that the Dems had lost the South for a generation. Nixon capitalized on this and appealed to the Dixiecrats – the Solid South switched to GOP.

    It’s actually pretty fascinating. I would advise reading up on wikipedia.

    Big Joe

  48. Proud Obamacon says:

    Yes we agree that you were lying when you said that I did “not want to stop North Korea from getting nuclear weapons” or that “The policies [I] advocate are what threatens California.”

    You’re a liar.

  49. The Classical Liberal says:

    #47 Big Joe

    I would recommend that you read a little more about US politics. Richard Nixon did not go after the Dixiecrats.

    George Wallace, the Alabama governor, appealed to them. In fact George Wallace won 6 states (AFAIR)

    Richard Nixon’s Southern Strategy was based on the believe, correct as it turned out, that he could win southern states with only 40% of the vote.

    So, again. Richard Nixon did not appeal to the Dixiecrats. And, it took the Republicans 26 years before they started to win state races (as opposed to Electoral College victories). I guess the Republicans really have a long-term strategy.

  50. Big Joe says:

    #49
    Yes Wallace did win the states in that one election in 1968 but I’m sure you know that the Dixiecrats became Republicans over a period of time that started even before that election. Nixon swept the south in 1972. Hell even in 1964 it was Goldwater winning in the South. In 1968, Wallace won the southern states because he ran as a Dixiecrat. When faced with a Dem v Republican race, they chose the Republican.

    Carter did get them back in ’76, but it was a one time blip.

    Big Joe

  51. Proud Obamacon says:

    I see that SDC left when I called him out on his lying. Good riddance, looosah.

    As for Big Joe, what are you doing to support Osoff? Its a pretty important race in your backyard, buddy.

  52. Big Joe says:

    #51-
    Nothing really, Proud. My 11U boys baseball team has a rivalry game tomorrow night. We’ve been preparing for this one. Wish me luck brutha!

    And I’ll be pulling for Osoff too, but unfortunately I don’t see him hitting 50%.

    Good luck, I’m out!

    Big Joe

  53. SanDiegoCitzen says:

    51. Sorry Obamacon, have only so much time to play with trolls, so had to move on.

    Am happy you now admit that cyber warfare would not be enough to prevent North Korea from developing nuclear missile technology. So it is time to take the next step, which Trump is doing.

  54. Wes says:

    May calls a snap election in Britain. This is to determine the level of support for Brexit apparently.

  55. NYCmike says:

    Wes,

    Supposedly it is also an attempt to capitalize on the support for Brexit by electing more people from her party, to make it easier to pass the Brexit reform legislation.

  56. NYCmike says:

    http://freebeacon.com/issues/fcc-kept-obamaphone-fraud-wraps-expanded-program/

    -Tim, the “moderate, blue-dog Democrat”, would defend this program, no doubt about it.

  57. jason says:

    As for Big Joe, what are you doing to support Osoff? Its a pretty important race in your backyard, buddy.”

    Yeah, Big Joe, what are you doing for the dictatorship of the proletariat?

    Proud ObamaCON is taking names, and come the revolution he will be submitting lists for re-education camps.

    While too stupid for any real position, the neighborhood Kommittee will probably have him spying on his neighbors.

  58. jason says:

    Ideologically, there is probably not much difference between ObamaCON and Kim…..

    Kim is a little more aggressive in style, he feeds non-believers to the dogs, while Proud ObamaCON calls them loosahs.

  59. jason says:

    I see Big Joe was here talking something about Dixie Crats. Well Big Joe is the biggest Dixie Crat around! Fraud!!!”

    Translation: Big Joe, while a Democrat, is not a flaming moonbat and actually can think for himself instead of repeating talking points.

    Horrors!

  60. NYCmike says:

    -For Robbie – another person who does not trust the NY Times.

  61. Bitterlaw says:

    Those walks Brits. Holding elections whenever they feel like it.

  62. jason says:

    Is Proud ObamaCON admitting Ossof doesn’t have this locked down like Hillary had Arizona?

  63. EML says:

    Supposedly it is also an attempt to capitalize on the support for Brexit by electing more people from her party, to make it easier to pass the Brexit reform legislation.
    ================================
    Well, that’s the “official” line of reasoning. The real reason is that, unlike here, the UK Left actually succeeded in naming their Bernie Sanders candidate head of the party. As a result, the Conservatives hold an unprecedented lead 20-point over Labour in the polls and PM May seeks to wipe them out.

  64. EML says:

    In a recent UK poll, “Who would be the best PM?”, Jeremy Corbyn came in third behind Theresa May and Don’t Know

    May 55%
    Don’t Know 27%
    Corbyn 18%

  65. NYCmike says:

    EML,

    Those 2 ideas go hand in hand, so I guess we agree. May needs more votes to make sure, and at the same time she can hurt the other party.

    Win-win.

  66. NYCmike says:

    http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/advice-to-democrats-dont-let-california-vote-early-in-2020/article/2620362

    -California to choose EARLIER in the cycle?

    THAT will be interesting……

  67. NYCmike says:

    We are on to you, bunu…..

    Looking at a Youtube video, and came across this in the comments:

    “That moment when your favorite show becomes uncucked in front of your eyes. Praise KEK?.”

  68. Todd McCain says:

    Ossoff gets 42%; so let it be written, so let it be done.

    GOP came on strong in the last week with the EV numbers and there is a ground swell of GOP voters that are expected today.

    Yeah, just like Clinton had WI and MI in the bag……

    Where is Corey? I thought Trump was going to lose Ohio by 10 points.

  69. jason says:

    Actually to be fair Corey said Hillary would win OH by 3.

    Since Trump won by 8 Corey was only off by 11.

  70. jason says:

    I hope May does well, but calling snap elections doesn’t always work out…

  71. Robbie says:

    Labour Party is about to feel some major pain. The Tories already have a 20 point lead in some polls. On top of that, the WaPo wrote earlier today a recent poll showed not even a majority of Labour voters wanted Jeremy Corbyn as PM over May.

    The good news for Labour is this. After they get smashed, Corbyn will be forced to quit as the head of the party. They’ll automatically be better off after that happens.

  72. Wes says:

    I understand Joe’s sentiments, but he oversimplifies why many southern Democrats became Republicans. Although some did so because of Dem focus on civil rights, many more did so because the Dems no longer reflected conservative ideology in any way. For instance Eisenhower was the first President to work to break the discriminatory policies of southern Dems. Ike carried half the South, including winning Louisiana for the GOP in 1956, and won over many Southern whites who would later serve as the nucleus of the nascent Southern GOP. Most vehemently anti-civil rights Dems remained Dems. Think Robert Byrd and James Eastland. Meanwhile, of the three Southern Republican Senators serving in 1964, two voted for the Civil Rights Act.

    Former Dixiecrats have also shown little or no compunction about electing an Indian woman and a black man as Governor and Senator respectively in South Carolina while Southerners rejected white Democrats Al Gore, John Kerry, and Hillary Clinton by bigger margins than they voted against black Democrat Barack Obama.

    As such, ideology instead of civil rights has been the reason for the shift of white Southern Democrats to the GOP. Blacks are the basis of the Southern Dems, but as blacks have become increasingly ideologically liberal, Dems have needed to appeal to them more and more and thus undercut their ability to make inroads among white voters except in special cases like when GWB was collapsing as President in 2006 and 2008.

  73. Tina says:

    Turns out ossod aka so off does not even live in the district.

  74. Wes says:

    Ossoff had an awkward time defending his lack of residency in the district. He was also an aide to Hank “Guam will tip over” Johnson. He seems like a poor fit for a GOP-leaning district Trump carried, albeit narrowly, last year. Oddly Dems aren’t even trying to recruit nominal moderates for these special elections in districts Trump carried.

  75. Robbie says:

    Alabama’s governor moves up special election for Sessions’ seat. This seems odd to me.

    Kay Ivey?
    @GovernorKayIvey

    I promised to steady our ship of state. That’s why I have decided to set new dates for the Senate Special Election. http://bit.ly/2pdNdin

  76. janz says:

    #73 you post historically interesting information, as always, Wes.

  77. Tina says:

    Voting machines stolen ahead of ga district 6 vote.

  78. Tina says:

    More fake news

    kid asks Trump to sign his hat at the White House Easter Egg Roll. The president signs … and then tosses the hat into the crowd. pic.twitter.com/7ExdhpO97H

    This did not happen

  79. Tina says:

    It is like the muh russia story.

    Fake news by drats, jebots, and never trumoeters.

  80. janz says:

    Ossoff reminds me of a “white” Obama figure. He’s an incredibly empty-suit candidate, who is disguising himself as a semi-moderate with an appeal to ideolistic college students and upper middle class sophisticated voters.

  81. janz says:

    Ossoff not only lives out of the district he’s running in – so there won’t be any pics of him casting a vote for himself in that district – but 95% of his campaign money was derived outside the state. I guess you could label him a true “outsider!”

  82. janz says:

    Ohio Facebook killer shot and killed himself.

  83. Phil says:

    The more we find out about this “moderate” Democratic candidate the poorer fit he seems to be for that electorate.

    Reminds me of Wendy Davis in Texas. Out of state media built her up and then the more the voters actually found out about her the more her candidacy collapsed.

  84. jason says:

    Exits look good for the Republicans.

  85. Wobbles says:

    I never believe early exits. Dems always vote later.

  86. jason says:

    Osoff is no moderate.

    Proud ObamaCON likes him.

    Flaming moonbat.

  87. janz says:

    Wendy Davis is a good comparison, Phil.

    Where does one see GA exit info? There is chatter regarding whether Trump’s tweet interventions galvinized R or D votes.

  88. janz says:

    While Ossoff is definitely a far left liberal, he, nonetheless, has appealed to upper class moderates who are not Trump fans.

  89. janz says:

    GA’s 6th District election is all about adding mud to the Trump presidency – not about genuine support for Ossoff because he is such a spectacular candidate.

  90. Phil says:

    janz,

    I don’t see Trump’s tweets doing anything to galvanize Democratic voters today. Those Democrats that would be galvanized by anything Trump have already banked their votes early.

    I look for a big Republican election day vote.

    My prediction is Osoff hits a ceiling tonight of 41%. Obviously I could be wrong but I don’t think so. We shall see.

  91. janz says:

    I hope your prediction proves to be right, Phil. Of course, GA, will not be the last of Dems nationalizing all remaining CD special elections, such as Montana and Alabama.

  92. Phil says:

    Yeah, it is going to be a continuing challenge in each and every open district or state. I for one welcome leftists dumping buckets of money into Alabama. Good luck with that one, moonbats.

    The thing is, they won’t even run any kind of non moonbats even in red states. They can’t help themselves…or it might be simply that there are no sane moderates left in the Democratic Party to run.

  93. Big Joe says:

    Proud Obamacon would be well served to not antagonize other Democrats.

    All recent elections have been nationalized and will this will continue for the foreseeable future. This is not anything new. It’s how GOP played it during the Obama years, and how the Dems will play under The Donald.

    And why not, Dems are eager to tie and Republican to Trump, and GOP ties all Dems to Pelosi/Schumer/etc…

    Big Joe

  94. janz says:

    Phil, I have never seen the dem party in such mental disarray!

    Perhaps, living in denim blue CA, their behavior is far more pronounced than other states, heading off rational cliffs towards becoming bottomless “lunatics.”

    Nonetheless, there appears to be no sense, sensibilities or stable brain waves present in the many organized leftist protests around the country. Screaming, foul language, and meaningless disruption seems to be their primary strategy to challenge R’s and ultimately win the next election. I don’t condone, let alone understand, such awful means to a desired end game.

  95. janz says:

    Sean Trende weighs in on the 6th CD election, weaving in historical and current day relevance.

  96. Wes says:

    Joe, Dems didn’t try to nationalize the race in Kansas. The Dem actually ran against Sam Brownback. I would postulate Trump was probably a boon to Estes’ lethargic campaign by endorsing him late in the game.

    Here, the dynamics are different. Trump is probably less popular than in KS-4: nonetheless, although Trump only edged Hillary here last year, he still won while downballot Republicans had no problems at all winning. Also, while Democrats are using the race as a rallying cry against Trump, Republicans are using it as a rallying cry against Schumer and Pelosi.

    In recent days, the latter narrative has seemed to gain resonance and looks likely to prevail in the runoff.

    I haven’t heard about that meme being significantly applied in today’s election gambit.

    ================================
    Ossoff is being portrayed as ‘one of those far left liberals who supports the Obama/Pelosi/Schumer agenda’.

    Sorry Charlie Cook wrote an article today that was supposed to be anti-GOP but accidentally hit upon a problem that Democrats are having. The party is still toxic. In KS-04 and MT-AL, the candidates need(ed) money. But the party doesn’t want to get involved because they know that they turn off voters. It’s a conundrum. Candidates often need party money and infrastructure to win, but cannot afford to be tied to the party. In KS-04 and MT-AL, they are willing to let their candidates run by themselves on a pro-gun, anti-tax platform then to get involved.

    But they are all-in on GA-06. Ossoff has raised somewhat north of $10 mil at this point. Spending that much money on a single congressional seat campaign should guarantee a win.

    “Spending that much money on a single congressional seat campaign should guarantee a win.”

    But, will it? Money hasn’t been the elixir it once was considered to be — or so it seems, given the tremendous monetary lopsidedness of the recent presidential race.

  102. NYCmike says:

    “Alabama’s governor moves up special election for Sessions’ seat. This seems odd to me.”

    -The link shows a directive from the Governor that is pretty straight-forward and direct, and Steve Bannon didn’t “botch” it, so not sure what you find “odd”.

  103. Robbie says:

    An unintended consequence of moving the election for Sessions’ seat up a year is it might give someone like HFC member Mo Brooks a free shot at running without having to give up is House seat.

    – Hey douche bag, point to a post I’ve made suggesting anything other than the race goes to a run off and the Republican (whoever that happens to be) wins with some ease.

    In fact, boob-who-hides-behind-a-dumb-screen-name, I’ve said more than a few times I expect the Montana special election (which the Republican will win) to be closer than the GA06.

    Any other stupid questions?

    – Be sure and send Trump a note letting him know the HHR comment section doesn’t like Maggie Haberman. Once he knows that, I’m sure she’ll no longer be one of the reporters he calls, unprompted, to give her phone interviews like he did the day Obamacare repeal was pulled.

    Robbie,

    In regards to Maggie and Trump, we have already gone over this.

    He feels sorry for her, and wants her to get one story correct every now and then.

    He figures even she won’t mess up A DIRECT QUOTE in an interview!

  125. NYCmike says:
