Cruz Only Leads By 1% in TX, Walker Trails in WI

We’ll knock a few polls out at once today. Emerson College came out with a new poll showing Republican Ted Cruz with only a single-percentage-point lead in Texas although the poll does have an obscene number of undecideds at this point.

US SENATE – TEXAS (Emerson)
Ted Cruz (R-inc) 38%
Beto O’Rourke (D) 37%

This poll was done August 22-25 among 550 likely voters. Suffolk University has come out with a poll for the state of Wisconsin that shows Scott Walker trailing in his bid for another term as Governor.

US SENATE – WISCONSIN (Suffolk)
Tammy Baldwin (D-inc) 50%
Leah Vukmir (R) 42%

GOVERNOR – WISCONSIN (Suffolk)
Tony Evers (D) 46%
Scott Walker (R-inc) 44%

This poll was done August 18-24 among 500 likely voters. Republicans looking for some good news might like this new poll from WPA Intelligence that claims Republican Matt Rosendale holds a lead over the incumbent Democratic Senator Jon Tester.

US SENATE – MONTANA (WPA)
Matt Rosendale (R) 47%
Jon Tester (D-inc) 45%

This poll was done August 20-22 among 600 likely voters.

    I think Walker has passed his sell-by date.

  2. Wes says:

    I would love to see Rosendale dethrone Tester.

  3. Hugh says:

    This midterm like no other will be nationalized. I think this will help us in the senate. Not as sure about the house. Tester is toast.

  4. NYCmike says:

    Wes,

    As long as he has been there, it makes some sense that voters would start looking for something different.

    That said, I believe he wins, simply because he knows who his reliable voters are, and they will get out and vote for him. Even in the last election, Johnson was not looking that strong for re-election, yet the voters turned out.

    I predict Walker wins by at least 4, and Vukmir will be a strong candidate. I would not sell her short yet.

  5. Redmen4ever says:

    Republicans in Wisconsin should be happy with this Suffolk poll. Although not as favorable as the most recent Marquette poll, each of these two polls is consistent with the Gov. race being essentially a toss-up and the Rep. candidate being within striking distance in the Senate race. These results are vastly different from pre-primary polling. In addition, the party affiliation numbers and Trump job approval numbers in these two polls nicely align with a wealth of information concerning those two things.

  6. ReadyFirst says:

    Voter numbers update from east Central FL. Democrat turnout up only 3% over Republicans from 2014 midterm primary as of 2:30 pm today. I would imagine those numbers will level out once republicans get off work today and vote. Total turnout numbers are up just a couple percent from the 2014 midterm primary. Translation, NO BLUE WAVE HERE! Oh yeah, and it’s hot as hell out there today!

    In the first place, the fact the President’s personal attorney gets compensated for his work might be a great revelation to you, but to anybody with a 5th grade education, it’s pretty obvious.

    Second, the “paid” here is somehow supposed to be a negative, but it isn’t. There is absolutely no problem in being “paid” as an attorney.

    Dems may reject their strongest gubernatorial candidate in FL tonight.

    Why is Dave not providing a primary thread?

  27. Wes says:

    DeSantis is the GOP nominee for FL-Gov.

    Alan Grayson’s political career has died quickly yet again.

  28. Wes says:

  29. Todd McCain says:

    The Blue Wave was exposed tonight in Florida. GOP has come out strong.

  30. mnw says:

    Wes

    I don’t think there are any real headline races tonight to draw much interest. But if u want primary threads & comments, & plenty of ’em, RRH is the place.

    I had trouble sleeping last night, & then dental surgery to look forward to today. I found that early morning troll-slapping had some therapeutic effect.

  31. Wes says:

    Dems has a DEGOP moment tonight and rejected their strongest candidate for a critical statewide office for a corrupt loon.

    I’m now moving the race to Likely R Hold.

  32. Bitterlaw says:

    Wes – I forget the primaries go so late in some states. PA holds them in May. It gives the opponents of Wolf and Casey a longer time to write their concession speeches.

  33. Wes says:

    Are the FL gubernatorial primaries and GOP Senate primary in AZ not headline races, Mnw?

  34. Mr.Vito says:

    I moved right around the deadline, so I skipped the primary… only just got my new info.

  35. mnw says:

    Well… I think the AZ SEN GOP primary is a foregone conclusion, isn’t it? McSally laps the pack?

    I assumed Desantis would win too.

    August 28, 2018 at 8:26 pm | In reply to IrvineOnlooker
    Democrats thought the same thing about the 2016 GOP Presidential race. Florida is going to be tight this year no matter what, and DeSantis can’t take his eye off the ball for a second if he wants to win.
    R, 27, CA-18. Anti-Anti-Trump

    Look. Just because Trump lucked out with a disaster of an opponent and won despite the perceived odds against him, that doesn’t mean every candidate perceived as weak isn’t in fact weak.

  37. mnw says:

    There has been some intriguing speculation at several sites that Ducey might appoint an AZ military aviator, Maj. Gen. Micheal Maguire. Nobody hates him.

  38. Wes says:

    FL-Gov is critical for redistricting, Mnw. That Republicans picked a solid B-list candidate while Dems picked a male Christine O’Donnell is significant.

    As far as AZ-Sen, McSally is Likely to win, but margin of victory, her perception among primary voters, and where she gets most of her votes are things to look at too.

  39. Gpo says:

    If no one hates you, often it means your not accomplishing much.

    I always liked this old CIA spook cliche about the probable winner of a third world power struggle:

    1) The one with the most guns;

    2) The one with the most money; or

    3) The one with the fewest enemies.

  47. Mr.Vito says:

    Putnam really couldn’t do much to distinguish himself from DeSantis on the issues… they both ran to Trump, but DeSantis had the Trump endorsement.

    It also served DeSantis well that he fully supported Rubio jumping back into the Senate race in 2016, and dropped out.

  48. Mr.Vito says:

    Ugh. Donna Shalala. When will these Clinton people finally go away.

  49. mnw says:

    Ooohh!

    She’ll definitely get the male heterosexual vote.

    Graham.

    It’s actually possible that Gillum might win for them? That would be an astonishing lucky break for Republicans. He would be their weakest candidate.

    Trump Bump: 41% of voters now say the country is headed in the right direction. That compares to the mid- to upper 20s for most weeks during 2016, President Obama’s last year in office…from @Rasmussen_Poll

  56. mnw says:

    From all The Wise Men chatter at RRH, it would appear that this Gillum person will win.

    Lots of hand-wringing about Gillum over there, because DeSantis is just too damn Trump-y! Can’t have THAT, can we?

  57. CG says:

    I find it hard to see how Gillum can win a general election, ethics questions, etc, even against DeSantis. Any other Democrat would have been favored to beat him, especially Gwen Graham.

    Wow, is DeSantis lucky. If this holds up, Bernie Sanders gets to gloat as much as Donald Trump on this one.

    How would this result affect the Nelson vs. Scott race? Unless it means that there is a huge African-American turnout for the Democrats that would not have otherwise happened, it’s probably bad for Nelson too.

  58. Gpo says:

    Lol- sabato tweet at 7:49- to be fair he is making fun of himself for being so wrong

    As has been obvious all along, Gwen Graham is very likely the D FL GOV nominee. As her successful race is analyzed, don’t omit wise daily advice she received from her Dad, ex-Gov/Sen Bob Graham. No living person knows more about FL politics, or has been more successful.

    FL’s Dem nominee for governor, Andrew Gillum, makes Ocasio-Cortez look moderate. They might as well call the midterm election for DeSantis tonight.

  66. CG says:

    Rubio had very little baggage for a general election. Gillum and DeSantis both have a lot.

    And the Independent did come in second in that one.

    If this holds up, both nominees for Governor of Florida will be younger than any of you.

  67. CG says:

    The hot Republican Congressional nominee from Miami that was being talked about here also says she was once abducted by aliens.

    That’s ok though. It’s all normal these days.

  68. MIKE IN DALLAS says:

    If anyone chooses to think that CRUZ leads by 1% point (or the margin of error), I have a lot of scrub land to see you between Midland and Odessa! Beto O’R has all the glitter that Wendy Davis (remember her? she ran for governor – loved by lib-Dems) had, and he will lose by 7% – 10%. In part, that will be due to the TOP of the ticket which has Gov. Greg Abbott running against a truly sad candidate in Ms. Valdez.

  69. Wes says:

    DeSantis is a B+ candidate, good but not great. He’s also likely Florida’s next Governor. That will clean up the Florida Supreme Court.

    I don’t.

    It actually shows how the justice system is easily manipulated and how justice is “selective”. Neither Manafort or Cohen would never have been charged with anything if they hadn’t been associated with Trump. That isn’t justice.

    But since I am not a deadender, I don’t have to agree with everything Romney says and still think he will be a great senator.

    Almost half of Arizona primary voters are voting for Ward or Arpaio. Sick.
    30, M, R, NY-10 (Soon-to-be NY-17)

  145. Tom says:

    Maybe Gillum can get Maduro to fly up and campaign for him.

  146. ReadyFirst says:

    My School Board guy was my only loss today. He’ll get over it. He was on long enough and the top vote getter was pretty dynamic. I had to campaign next to her and half way through I started feeling guilty cause she’s a great candidate.

  147. ReadyFirst says:

    Gollum is going nowhere in FL. I think most Dems fully we’re expecting Graham.

  148. ReadyFirst says:

    Gillum, oops, autocorrect.

  149. Tom says:

    McSally crushed it in AZ.

  150. Mr.Vito says:

    By my count, in Pima county (large Dem county), 39% of registered Dems voted, and 40% of registered Reps voted.

  151. Wes says:

    Gollum works too, RF.

  152. Tom says:

    153. Autocorrect got it right.

  153. mnw says:

    It might help McSally if Ducey* appoints somebody… soothing. We need no “hellzapoppin’!” from that quarter right now.

    For far too long, AZ has produced more political controversy than it can consume locally. “Soothing” would be very, very GOOD.

    * Guess how many times spellcheck has tried to change “Ducey” to “Ducky”? (A LOT.)

  154. mnw says:

    Wes 156

    You beat me to it. I was gonna say that. So you have some Yiddish* to go with your Spanish.

    *A “Gollum” is an evil, mischievous spirit.

  155. GF says:

    I kind of hope that Ducey appoints that USAF General; if McSally wins (and I think she will narrowly prevail), then the Pinko heads can explode at having two military veterans occupying both seats in one state, just as they blew up over Mattis not having been retired long enough before accepting SECDEF or Gen. Kelly at CoS (with all the predictable accusations of a military dictatorship taking hold).

  156. Tina says:

    Look at the Rcp Florida polls averages and his far they were off.

  157. Tina says:

    The socialist is tweeting that he wants .desaintis and Gaetz to both lose.

  158. Wes says:

    GF, McSally has a highly successful candidate profile in AZ: that of a center-right veteran. That tells me Sinema will not prevail—unless McSally has an (unlikely) George Allen moment .

  159. GF says:

    DDHQ calls the race for McSally.

  160. jason says:

    Arpaio had a great run as sheriff in Maricopa, and that gets him some votes. I respect his career but the fact is he had no business running this race at 85 with no chance of winning the primary let alone the GE.

    Ward is a complete dingbat, plain and simple.

  161. mnw says:

    I see that the Yiddish version is spelled “golem.” I’m sure that’s the inspiration for Tolkien’s “Gollum,” though.

  162. GF says:

    Wes, perhaps Martha knows some archaic/esoteric term to describe those of a richer hue; at this point, I think that is the Ds best shot at beating her.

  163. Wes says:

    Agreed, GF.

  164. mnw says:

    McSally doesn’t;t seem like the George Allen type. Nor does Hawley seem likely to go Todd Akin.

    GF 160

    I like it.

  165. ReadyFirst says:

    Lol, Gollum, very appropriate.

  166. JeffP says:

    Looks like a RED wave in FL and AZ. Never been so excited to vote in a mid term.

  167. CG says:

    There was an all time record turnout in FL among Democrats for a Governor primary.

    I don’t know what we have to base anything on as far as “waves” for a general election, but in the FL Gov race, both nominees are whom the other side most wanted to run against

  168. Tina says:

    i am hearing reports of Russians interfering in the Florida and Arizona elections.

    Jebot

  169. Wes says:

    For some reason, RRH has yet to officially announce McSally has won.

  170. ReadyFirst says:

    The voter turnout numbers in my FL county today were up almost a third vs. 2014. Ironically, the numbers broke almost in the same percentages for dem and rep. Obviously, both sides are energized. It appears the same thing is happening all over the country.

  171. GF says:

    172- “…both nominees are whom the other side most wanted to run against…”

    True, but the R nominee is not currently under investigation and a potential candidate for indictment on corruption related charges.

  172. CG says:

    So, for Florida Governor, we basically have a Bernie Sanders vs. Donald Trump proxy match-up (with candidates young enough to be their sons).

    I have said here that I think it is will be tough for Gillum to win statewide, even against DeSantis, who is by far not the strongest Republican possible.

    Others are saying this will be a Tossup though.

    One thing everyone should agree on is that if Gillum, as far left as he is, does beat DeSantis in Florida, that’s an extremely bad signal for Trump’s reelection hopes.

  173. GF says:

    174- Wes, that’s because with Arpaio or, G_d forbid, Ward, it’s that much harder for a Democrat to win. That reality must have punched them right in the gut.

  174. Tina says:

    Will Redactstein indict Giloon?

  175. Mr.Vito says:

    Broward, Miami Dade, Palm Beach, and Osceola had the lowest Florida turnout statewide by percentage…

    Gollum is from Tolkien.

    Golem is the word, and it predates Yiddish. It is the unformed substance of mud/clay that you are in the presence of God as you are formed. The word is used in the book of Psalms.

    It is represented as a creature formed of earth and brought to life.

  195. DW says:

    “Like so many Americans, I got deeply into debt, & now I’m on an IRS repayment plan…”

  196. Wobbles says:

    Ok, so it was a bad night, what can I say.

    I was hoping Chemtrail in AZ would win, that would be bad for Trump.

    I was hoping the Dem deadender for Governor in FL would lose, that would bad for Trump.

    I was hoping the Dems would have had higher turnout than the GOP in FL and AZ, that would have been bad for Trump.

  197. jason says:

    Looks like DeSantis will have plenty of money, all these people will support his GE campaign too.

    “Trump’s early morning tweet June 22 – saying that DeSantis “will be a Great Governor & has my full Endorsement” – swiftly lead to $500,000 in contributions from the GOP’s single biggest spenders, Las Vegas casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and his wife, Miriam.

    Another $500,000 also arrived last month from part-time Palm Beacher Laura Perlmutter, a Trump inauguration committee member, whose husband, Ike, is chair of Marvel Entertainment.

    Other big GOP contributors also are getting on board with Trump’s formal backing of the Palm Coast congressman over Republican rival Adam Putnam in the Aug. 28 primary, turning the usual in-state focus of the governor’s contest into a national affair.

    Even former Gov. Jeb Bush, the son of one president and the brother of another, relied chiefly on Florida financing – not national cash – for his campaigns.

    “This is the first time in my memory that I’ve seen it where we have a candidate for governor who can tap this kind of rich vein of money across the country,” said Brian Ballard, Trump’s lobbyist in Tallahassee and a major Florida fundraiser for the president’s campaign, who hasn’t taken sides in DeSantis-Putnam primary.

    “What’s happening here is really unique,” Ballard said.

    As a member of Congress and frequent Fox News guest, DeSantis already had a national profile which was pulling out-of-state money to his campaign. But once Trump left no doubt who he favored in the race, more cash arrived from the GOP’s top givers.

    Billionaire conservative brothers Charles and David Koch, who also have Palm Beach ties and who Trump is now feuding with over trade policy, still turned to DeSantis after the June 22 tweet, pouring in almost $250,000 last month for digital advertising and mailers for the candidate through their Freedom Partners PAC.

    Others spending on DeSantis in recent weeks include venture capitalist Joe Childs, whose $100,000 donation June 29 brought to $503,000 his stake in the candidate. The same day, Silicon Valley real estate investor Carl Berg cut a $100,000 check and three weeks later Ahmad Khawaja, a controversial online payment processor, sent $10,000, bringing his DeSantis contributions to almost $200,000.

    Indeed, the 30 Republican donors who the Center for Responsive Politics has named as the top federal contributors to GOP candidates this election cycle have pumped more than $3 million into the DeSantis campaign.”

  198. Mr.Vito says:

    Gillum received 650K from Soros and Steyer during the primary.

  199. jason says:

    Corey says the FL race is Sanders vs. Trump.

    When it was Hillary vs. Trump he preferred Hillary, a hardcore leftist who despite running on a platform even farther to the left than Obama and having called half the country deplorables, because supposedly she was a compromising moderate.

    Let’s see how he portrays Sanders.

  200. jason says:

    McSally well over 50% in the final tally, at 53% now.

    Also GOP turnout was about 500k, against 390k for the Dems, despite quite a few competitive races on their side too.

  201. jason says:

    CG is an arrogant little leftist azalea. He is a semi-literate troll who comes here to pimp his droolcup, moronic leftist blog. A parasite.”

    Dang, epic post. I give it a 10 on style.

    Not quite accurate though. Corey is quite literate and is not a troll.

    Deluded? Yes. Arrogant? Yes. Petty? Yes. Vindictive? Yes Sour grapes? Yes. Leftist? No.

    The fact he is willing to support a hard core leftist like Hillary while actually not being a leftist himself is just testament to his TDS.

  202. Wes says:

    Mikey hasn’t checked in since McSally won. He must be mourning Ward’s loss.

  203. jason says:

    Thank God for this decision:

    The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Paul, Minnesota rejected claims by 29 atheists, children of atheists and atheist groups that inscribing the national motto on bills and coins violated their First Amendment free speech and religious rights.”

    Sorry, you can’t rewrite history.

    You never said you would vote for her but you spent a lot of time explaining how she was “better” than Trump, even though she is completely and utterly morally corrupt and for decades enabled Bill Clinton as a sexual predator and abuser of women. So you did support her.

    And your most ridiculous argument for doing so was that somehow she was a compromising and non-ideological moderate, when in reality her whole political career has been one of hard core and uncompromising leftist rhetoric principles. You try to wriggle out of it by saying “compared to Obama” but that is false too. Hillary ran on much more radical stances than Obama, and the fact she was the Democratic establishment choice in 2008 wasn’t because she was more moderate, it was because she was viewed as the stronger candidate for the GE. Obama, although a committed socialist himself, was actually more pragmatic than Hillary ever even pretended to be. And he at least pretended to be “post-partisan”. Hillary has always been an ideologue, first and foremost. Compromise has never been part of her politics or her persona.

    So if you are willing to cover for her to that extent, then saying you supported her is not unfair.

    ve run into literally half a dozen people over the past few years who have said they could never vote for Rubio because he is constitutionally ineligble to be President”

    Both lies of course. He never ran into anybody who said that and Rubio was born in the US so his eligibility was never in doubt.

    Translation: the Pope’s ideologically driven agenda is at risk because of “ideologically motivated opposition”.

  225. CG says:

    No, I never ran into anyone who said they would not vote for Rubio because he was “ineligible”

    But before that, and before he was a Presidential candidate, Birther types told me he was ineligible. I told them they were wrong then about that and I said the same thing when Trump tried to make it an issue during the primaries.

    I defended him at all times on that matter.

  226. CG says:

    Just as I defended Cruz on the matter and anyone else whom the Birther types target.

    One can do that, even when the person being attacked isn’t your first choice, and they were not.

    As for Hillary, jason himself said throughout the campaign that he preferred her on foreign policy to Trump.

    What I said about her, in comparison to Obama and in comparison to Bernie Sanders was very clear.

    In 2007 and early 2008, HHR comments would have been full of statements saying exactly what I said comparing her to Obama in terms of who would be more likely to be a politically conscious compromiser and who was an ideological true believer.

  227. CG says:

    The one here who was repeated lies about Rubio throughout the campaign was lisab, who kept saying he was gay and talking about foam parties. I defended him on that too.

    Just like she used clever word games to lie about John McCain here the day before he died.

    She is not a credible source for anything here.

  228. jason says:

    CG is lying through his teeth again.

    He was here promoting the Rubio is ineligible stories while pretending he was just the “messenger”.

    At the time, I called him out on his despicable “strategy” of rumors, innuendos and character assassination.

    The “I am not saying this”, “others are saying it” meme was so obvious is was ridiculous.

  229. ReadyFirst says:

    220. Yeah Jason, I do. Also, that kind of garbage talk about Rubios eligibility is nonsense as is the talk about Cruz.

  230. jason says:

    more likely to be a politically conscious compromiser and who was an ideological true believer.”

    Except there is zero evidence Hillary was ever a compromiser and tons of evidence she has always been a rigid leftist ideologue, so that dog won’t hunt.

  231. jason says:

    As for Hillary, jason himself said throughout the campaign that he preferred her on foreign policy to Trump.”

    LOL, is that the best you can do?

    I said I preferred Hillary on trade and foreign policy because I viewed her as less of an isolationist. I also made clear I preferred Trump on a whole slew of issues.

    But I NEVER said Hillary was “better” than Trump as a candidate. NEVER.

    GFY.

    It is ridiculous logic to suggest that criticizing an argument is the secretly the same as agreeing with it. Very weak, jason, but that’s your m.o. here.

    Anything I said was in response to a discussion going on here. Of course Rubio was eligible. How is there anything to suggest otherwise based on what I was saying? But yes, some people have an odd view of what they think the Constitution says.

    Even when you are right on an issue (like trade) you have to lie about what others said and distort their views.

    If Democrats whiff on Election Night 2018, last night (the nominations of Andrew Gillum and David Garcia to be ticket-mates to moderate Senate nominees in close races) will be a big part of the reason why.
    Although in general it seems to me that in a lot of Southwestern states (and Florida as a swing state with swingy Hispanics is an honorary Southwestern state in certain ways) that gubernatorial Republicans are generally running ahead of their senatorial ticket-mates; I’d give Adam Laxalt, Doug Ducey, and Steve Pearce all better odds than Dean Heller, Martha McSally, and Gary Johnson, and while FL-Gov polling has been confused I do think Ron DeSantis is a likelier winner than Rick Scott. The #resistance is fired up to vote against Trump, but there’s a lot less intensity in their opposition to gubernatorial candidates.

    Donnelly I believe has decided that he can get enough GOP votes to win. I expect him to support Kavanaugh.

    I just wish there were more than that one poll. i recall a poll in May I think that had Braun up a little bit.

    I dont understand why Indiana is not getting polled a lot more. It never does get polled much in these types of races. And this is a key race.

    Thx. The IN “12-point poll Donnelly-lead” poll certainly had some oddities. It was an issue poll, for one thing, not a traditional head-to-head candidate poll. But.. it’s all we’ve had to look at for a long time.

    I respectfully disagree about DeSantis’ comment. I think voters now are very jaded about these “rayciss!” claims. About all I would say is, it’s not a particularly original or imaginative turn of phrase.

    Bear in mind, Allen in VA said (going from memory) said, “Look at that macaca,” as I recall. Little different.

    The DeSantis thing reminds me more of an old SNL comedy skit where a black actor pretended to take offense at the mention of a Lazy Boy recliner.

    Idioms tend to morph. Below is an invocation of ‘monkey things up,’ a clipped version of ‘throw a monkey wrench into the works.’ I cited the full version as it makes clear what is meant by the idiom. The idiom means to mess things up. The historical context is industrial sabotage by workers, although once the idiom caught on, it included inadvertently messing things up as well as intentionally messing things up.

    “You believe that things tend to work out the way they’re supposed to and you don’t need to monkey things up with constantly asking why.”

    https://www.yourtango.com/2017300657/how-old-your-soul-based-your-zodiac-sign

    BTW monkey wrench itself sets off some people’s racedar. Supposedly, monkey wrench is derogatory reference to the famous heavyweight boxing champ Jack Johnson (the fellow who was pardoned by Trump). Johnson was something of a tinkerer and earned several patents one for an adjustable wrench. But, monkey wrench predates Johnson by several centuries and, besides, being an inventor is normally viewed as positively. No monkey ever wrote “To be or not to be,” but a human being did, a quite remarkable one. And, while there have been greater inventors than Jack Johnson, I don’t think anyone of them was ever the heavyweight champion of the world.

    Now, as for DeSantis and his comment today-

    1. He needs to up his game. That is a gaffe a politician in a high-profile race cannot afford to make, assuming it was a gaffe

    2. If this is a term or an analogy he has used before or uses regularly, then his campaign should quickly provide examples of him doing so.

    3. I don’t know if he meant it in an under the radar racist way or not. Without any evidence to the contrary, I think he has to be given the benefit of the doubt that he was not meaning it in that way.

    4. I know for sure that if Debbie Stabenow said the exact same thing about John James, a bunch people here would be saying it was an intentionally racist comment. Such is the sad state of our current politics.

    yet you made the exact opposite statement during the election process

    sooooooooooo … it is not quite the same … actually not at all

  292. CG says:

    What I said was that nobody said they were not voting for Rubio for President for this reason. These conversations I had were years before the 2016 campaign.

    I was the one talking about Rubio as a rising star in the party and perhaps a future President, and these people are the ones who said things along the lines of, “Oh I like him, but he’s not eligible because his parents were not born here.” I told them at the time it did not matter and that he was eligible, as diplomatically as I could. Perhaps I should have been less diplomatic with those kind of people who infest the Republican Party, and also perhaps I was way overestimating Rubio.

    Now, tell us more lisa about the time he got arrested in a park with other men..

    he is constitutionally ineligble to be President.”

  294. CG says:

    They didn’t say if they would vote for him or not. They just said he was ineligible. Joseph Farah of the right-wing site WND was writing for years how Rubio was ineligible according to him.

    Where did you hear the foam party rumors from though?

  295. lisab says:

    “They didn’t say if they would vote for him or not. They just said he was ineligible.”

  297. CG says:

    As it turns out, a whole bunch of Republicans decided they could never vote for Rubio, especially once talk radio turned on him and turned him into a “liberal.”

    For the sake of the Republican Party and America, I wish he would have done a lot better and beaten Donald Trump. Clearly, that was never going to happen though. Trump was what the people in the party would want or grow to want now. Remember, that’s why jason left the party…

  298. lisab says:

    of course … today you wrote

    “No, I never ran into anyone who said they would not vote for Rubio because he was “ineligible””

    but before you said half a dozen people told you

    that they would never vote for rubio

    because he was ineligible

  299. CG says:

    Nope, never said that as you very well know. This was long before Rubio announced his candidacy.

    I did say that months before the IL primary, I did not know anyone personally, who was involved in politics who was supporting Rubio. I said the same thing about Jeb Bush though. Nobody I knew who was involved was supporting him either.

    When Rubio released his delegate slate, I knew a few of the people, in particular, a State Senator whom I commented on here was a great get for him.

    Ultimately, it did not matter. Rubio was out of the competition when Illinois voted.

    I’m always honest on here, whether people agree with me or not.

    What were you getting at lisa when you were talking about John McCain on the day before he died and said he left his wife after she was in a car accident. Were you suggesting it was a direct result of a car accident she was in a full decade earlier?

    What was the “c word” you claim he called his second wife? That could have been a lot of things, including of course, “Cindy”, her name. What were your intentions with that claim?

  305. CG says:

    McCain has long acknowledged moral failings regarding his first marriage. It had nothing to do with the car accident she was in when he was in prison though.

    You do not seem to have a problem with a politician who has moral failings in all three of his marriages, so I am not sure why you need to bring it up about McCain.

  306. CG says:

    Do you stand behind the “c word” accusation. What is your source on that?

    I cannot even get an answer to what I am accused of “lying” about.

    I told the truth about the interactions I had with people at Republican meetings/events and the truth about what I believed about what they said.

    I also would take issue here when NYC would say that Rubio was disqualified from being entrusted with leadership in the party because he did a press conference with Schumer. Does that mean I secretly was suggesting that I agreed with NYC?

  316. CG says:

    lisab claims its all there in the archives, but of course won’t show them. Says it all.

    -jason has no comment at all about all the times she said Rubio was gay or the things she alleged about John McCain last Friday.

    They make a great tag-team.

  317. jason says:

    See how Corey accuses DeSantis of racism while pretending to write a balanced statement.

    “assuming it was a gaffe”

    Here he basically states that perhaps DeSantis is intentionally calling Gollum a monkey

    “If this is a term or an analogy he has used before or uses regularly, then his campaign should quickly provide examples of him doing so.”

    Here he sets some new stupid and ridiculous standard for DeSantis, as if he can’t say the word “monkeying” unless he uses it “regularly”.

    I don’t know if he meant it in an under the radar racist way or not.”

    Here he implies DeSantis is a “subconscious racist”

    You can’t make this sh-t up.

  318. ReadyFirst says:

    Best comment I’ve seen on FB all day:
    Correct me, if I’m wrong. But, didnt DeSantis get the Republican nomination several hours BEFORE Andrew Gillum became Florida’s first African-American Gubernatorial Candidate? And, the speech he gave took place well before it was known that Gillum scored his upset in the Dem primary? It can’t be a racial remark if DeSantis didn’t know who his opponent would be. He could’ve been called an insensitive woman basher if Gwen Graham (the favorite, I might add) would’ve won. The logic here is baffling!

  319. jason says:

    -jason has no comment at all about all the times she said Rubio was gay or the things she alleged about John McCain last Friday.”

    Translation: ok, I admit I am a pathological liar, “but”lisab also attacked Rubio.

    The conversation is about your obvious lie.

    My differences with lisab are well known.

  320. CG says:

    I very clearly gave DeSantis the benefit of the doubt about the comment.

    I’m not 100 percent sure though. That’s a risk you take when you embrace the red MAGA hat. There is no question at all that Donald Trump has regularly engaged in racial dog whistles. You all know that too, but are willing to overlook it because of the judges, et al.

  323. jason says:

    I cannot even get an answer to what I am accused of “lying” about.”

    You trashed Rubio here relentlessly and spread lies about him not being eligible, by pretending you were just repeating “what others said”. Cowardly and despicable.

    You lied about knowing people who said they would never vote for Rubio because he was “Constitutionally ineligible” and tried to deny you said that, until lisab came up with your exact quote and nailed your lying ass to the cross.

  324. jason says:

    I very clearly gave DeSantis the benefit of the doubt about the comment.”

    No, you pretended to that.

    I already showed that was another bald faced lie.

  325. jason says:

    They make a great tag-team.”

    Bitter, the suggestion I am “tag teaming” with lisab should be worth some points.

  326. Tina says:

    I am not sure though…

    There is the liars out on the Muh monkey story.

  327. CG says:

    I defended Rubio on here, on the merits, more than anyone, even though he was not my first choice.

    Sour grapes from you that he turned out to be a such a bad candidate. At least I knew the candidate I preferred had very little chance of winning the nomination, but still would have made the best President out of all who ran.

    The “exact quote” from lisab. Is no such thing, please produce that exact quote, with the hyperlink from the archives, and I will pay $1000 to the animal shelter.

  328. Phil says:

    Palin excluded from McCain funeral?

    Classy.

  329. jason says:

    Then: ““I’ve run into literally half a dozen people over the past few years who have said they could never vote for Rubio because he is constitutionally ineligble to be President.”

    now: “No, I never ran into anyone who said they would not vote for Rubio because he was “ineligible”

    Why are even discussing this? Geezuz.

  330. CG says:

    The “then” is not a quote I ever said.

    If I said it and you can link to it from the archives, I will pay $1000. Get to it.

  331. Tina says:

    According to reports Phil, yes.

    Very surprised, she was very loyal to him. Then his minions thrashed her and blamed her for the 2008 loss.

    Rick Wilson

    And the other fat slobs losers.

  332. jason says:

    At least I knew the candidate I preferred had very little chance of winning the nomination,”

    Another lie, of course.

    You held out for Jeb even longer than the other Jebbot, attacking all the polls that showed he was an obvious loser.

    In fact even when it was obvious he was going nowhere, you were still saying he was going to win the nomination “once the voting started”.

    And you attacked Rubio relentlessly because you were too stupid to realize it was Trump that was eating Jeb’s lunch. When Jeb stupidly spent tens of millions attacking Rubio instead of Trump, you thought it was a great idea.

    Keep digging.

  336. Wes says:

    Maybe John McCain—who recently died for those not in the loop—didn’t ask for Sarah Palin to be excluded from his funeral. Maybe McCain’s Family doesn’t want Palin to attend.

    Either way I’m not sure why it’s a big deal. It’s one man’s funeral. One woman he probably last had contact with in 2010 won’t attend. Color me not outraged.

  337. Wes says:

    Bay, IN has arcane laws making it cost prohibitive to poll in the state without running afoul of the law. That’s probably the reason for the dearth of polling in a clearly competitive race.

  338. Mr.Vito says:

    Obama won the 7% of people who said Palin was the most important factor in their vote 52-47%… whereas the 33% of people who said she was no factor at all were lost 65-33% by McCain.

    The rest of the population, who was said she was a factor in their vote, McCain won by about 18 points.

  339. Wes says:

    I’ve read all of what DeSantis said in context. He could have chosen his words more carefully, but I don’t believe for a second he intended a George Allen-style racial slur.

    The people making it into a racist gaffe are seeing what they want to see.

    That said, I would advise DeSantis to be more judicious in word choices going forward so as to avoid having to keep explaining himself to voters.

    He’s still the frontrunner against an ethicality challenged opponent. He should not become another Ken Cuccinelli.

  340. Phil says:

    I’m not outraged either, Wes. His family can have anyone there they want and exclude whoever they want. They can have a hundreds Steve Schmidt’s there if they choose. Probably will. Palin probably won’t have anything trouble finding something else to do.

  341. Tgca says:

    It would not surprise me if Mac excluded Palin after his “regretful” marks on her. She handled it with class and could have easily hit back on his great failure as a candidate but she did not.

    I think many can also say they regret Mac as the 2008 candidate too. He was awful and his last minute gimmick to suspend his campaign and rush to DC backfired, whether it was the right thing to do or not.

    Like it or not, Palin brought a certain level of enthusiasm to the campaign that it was lacking.

    I would like to think the Mac family made this decision and not him but it clearly appears petty.

  342. lisab says:

    so then you admit that if you wrote

    “I’ve run into literally half a dozen people over the past few years who have said they could never vote for Rubio because he is constitutionally ineligble to be President.”

    it was a lie? and you just made that up, is that what you are saying? 🙂

  343. jason says:

    Not inviting Palin is stupid. My opinion.

    Inviting Obama is stupid. My opinion.

    That being said, they can invite who they want.

  344. Phil says:

    True. Palin absolutely handled it with class. I’m sure the exclusion made the Schmidt’s of the world feel a sense of satisfaction. I’m sure the ladies on the View will love it too. About their speed.

  345. Mr.Vito says:

    The average of the last 4 published numbers of Gallup party ID is 45-42.5 D (D+2.5).

  349. Tgca says:

    I hope the Mac family gets the comfort they need from the funeral and honoraries. As I believe, generally the sorrow in death is about those left behind and not those that have more fed on. I believe Mac moved on to a better place so good for him.

    I still find it hysterical though how the Libs and media are falling over one another to honor him compared to how they treated him in 2008+ years. If Hillary was POTUS, I don’t think we’d hear much from them honoring Mac.

  350. Messy says:

    338,351. Palin started viciously attacking McCain in 2009 and kept on doing it for years and years. He kept his mouth shut about it for most of that time. She didn’t understand that the personal attacks were personal. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/mccain-defends-staffers-from-palin-barbs/

    Nixon wasn’t invited to JFK’s funeral either.

    359. It would have been more low key for sure, but president Hillary would have been invited.

    Run roh, Guiloon used the same word.

    But Muh racism per the Clinton groupie.

  353. Bitterlaw says:

    I am 50. I have never heard the expression “monkey things up.” I have heard “throw a monkey wrench into the works.” I do not believe it is racist but it is a good idea not to use monkey, ape, orangutan, or other primate references when your opponent is black. Every Republican is accused of being a racist. No need to hand the Dems ammunition.

  354. Mr.Vito says:

    If being mean to McCain gets you off the guest list, I suppose no congressional or media will be attending.

  355. Bitterlaw says:

    I don’t want Trump or Palin at my funeral,either.

  356. Redmen4ever says:

    Exactly how many people did McCain disinvite from his funeral?

  357. Mr.Vito says:

    “I have never heard the expression “monkey things up.”

    I have.

    It refers to a poorly designed solution that ends in disaster… like jury rig.

  358. Mr.Vito says:

    “It refers to a poorly designed solution that ends in disaster… like jury rig.”

    Which pretty much fits socialism to a T.

    Tgca, am glad you plan to make the arduous trek to my native village in the Andes to attend the ceremonies.

    Don’t listen to those rumors that the local high priest will pick one or two foreigners for the blood offering to the Gods, nowadays they just use llama blood.

  362. jason says:

    Exactly how many people did McCain disinvite from his funeral?”

    Despite having defended him tooth and nail here for years I was not invited either.

    Of course I could go as the A-hole representative if Bitter will release some funds for the trip.

  363. Bitterlaw says:

    Maybe monkey things up is more common in the South.

    I never know what Jason means when he says, “Llamas never spit and poop at the same dog.”

  364. jason says:

    Who?

  365. Chicon says:

    Jason clearly deserves an invite – he stood by Mac when it was hard to do so. He was loyal. Alas, another case of McCain stiffing someone loyal to him. Sad. 🙂

  366. Tgca says:

    375

    McCain stiffing someone…

    Hmmm…interesting choice of words.

  367. Mr.Vito says:

    Anyone have a link to where Palin viciously attacked McCain?

    Messy’s link, and the article they linked didn’t have anything vicious.

  368. Chicon says:

    Vito, it appears I “pulled a Desantis”.

  369. Mr.Vito says:

    or an attack…

    or anything personal about McCain…

    and considering Nicole Wallace and Steve Schmidt are now openly rooting for liberal Democrats, it may be time to take another look at the criticisms Palin had of them.

  370. Chicon says:

    Vito, why do you hate McCain?

  371. Bitterlaw says:

    https://www.freeimages.com/premium/portrait-of-peruvian-man-playing-a-flute-inca-ruins-pisac-1862258

    Since Jason got dressed up and practiced his musical tribute to McCain, the A-holes will send him to the funeral. Once we had to stop buying Goose for MD, our budget surplus soared.

    wow … the federal courts just got a lot more conservative today
    ——————-

    WASHINGTON ? Senate Democrats just gave a huge gift to President Donald Trump: They agreed to expedite votes on 15 of his nominees to lifetime federal court seats because they wanted to go home.
    Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) had lined up votes for all those district court nominees last week. Normally, Senate rules require up to 30 hours of waiting time for each nominee ? something Democrats typically take advantage of to delay action on confirming Trump judges. But Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (N.Y.) cut a deal with McConnell on Tuesday to bypass the wait times and let them all get through.
    Why? So Democrats could get back to campaigning and focusing on winning re-election in November. The Senate is now out of session until next Tuesday.

  397. ReadyFirst says:

    That’s good news Lisa.

  398. Mr.Vito says:

    Sock Monkey

    That is all.

  399. lisab says:

    for those keeping track, after today

    82 of 179 district court judges were appointed by republican presidents, 85 by democrats

    there are 12 vacancies, so the federal court system is about to become conservative

    7 of the vacancies are on the 9th circuit, which will soon be 13 to 16 democrat, it is now 6 to 16 democrat

    trump has redone the judiciary

  400. ReadyFirst says:

    Lisab, I’m curious, is there one central website you use for judicial number crunching or do you find those numbers sorting through google?

  401. mnw says:

    lisab

    I got raked over the coals at RRH for saying this, but I still believe it:

    District Court judges are just not important politically. They’re senatorial patronage. Most attys, I submit, would probably say that their experiences with dc judges who are appointed by Rs & those appointed by Ds are indistinguishable. To be brutal about it, who really cares?

    Now… CCA judges are a whole different galaxy of importance. They DO matter.

    Like I say, some posters at RRH who seem to be pretty successful lawyers (I think), called me an idiot (essentially) for posting that.

  402. mnw says:

    I think it’s vulgar to use one’s funeral to “punish” one’s perceived enemies, or estranged friends.

    Otoh, I don’t want my ex-wife at mine. So… vulgar are us too, I guess.

  403. Bitterlaw says:

    I don’t think she will be there, mnw. Depending on the autopsy report she will probably be the main suspect.

  404. Redmen4ever says:

    About whether McCain’s funeral is a private affair: Seems to me a state funeral can’t be a private affair. McCain and Trump got into a pissing contest. That reflected badly on both of them. Now that McCain has died, it might have been possible to dismiss his foibles, but that didn’t happen. Apparently, the pissing contest continues, now with McCain’s family getting into the act and Trump continuing to be small. McCain did a really stupid thing to spite Trump by monkeying up Obamacare repeal. 30 million Americans continue to twist in the wind not being able to afford Obamacare or the out-of-pocket of bronze plans. Possibly we will have a second go at this, if we retain the House. But, right now, that vote explains why Democrats love McCain and many Republicans have mixed feelings about him.

    Here is how ‘greyhound’ at Blue Racing Horses introduced the DeSantis comment:

    “Newly-nominated Republican Gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis said the word “Monkey” when referring to his (Black) Democratic Opponent Andrew Gillum.”

    Wow, this guy should work for CNN. He wasn’t referring to his opponent as the context made clear, and the word monkey was a verb, not a noun. This commentator did go on to give the context of the statement, but this is one of the stupidest things I have heard in a long time.

    Dems shouting that this is a dog-whistle usage that only racists hear, but they seem to be the only ones that heard it immediately.

    Sorry buddy! Katie was trying to find a way to damage her. Does she ask other politicians questions like that? Remember, they also ridiculed her college education. Considering many of the Dem base are not even college educated, and I would guess many of the 47% don’t read anything close to resembling the news, the Dems should think before trying to mock others.

    My response to Katie would have been, “ I don’t read any newspapers. I read HHR!”

  424. Wes says:

    They, I know Couric is a liberal, but “What newspapers do you read?” is not a gotcha question. That Palin couldn’t answer it reflected poorly on her rather than Couric.

    One can be a Palin-backing snowflake and twist the question that way, but no unbiased person looks at it that way.

    If Couric did intend to derail Palin with that innocuous question, then she was incredibly lucky Palin had no answer. I can list all the news outlets I read with no hesitation. Why couldn’t Palin?

  425. mnw says:

    Tg & Wes

    My only reaction to the Couric/Palin deal is, Palin couldn’t think fast enough to lie!

    Palin was a sportswriter in AK once, as I recall, right? She should’ve said, “The Hockey News, and Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists.”

    SPREAD THE WEALTH: Sen. Harris Wants US TAXPAYERS to Subsidize California’s Rents

    Firebrand Senator and potential 2020 hopeful Kamala Harris urged all Americans to help spread the wealth this week; calling on US taxpayers to subsidize California’s outrageous rent prices for minimum-wage workers.

    “In CA, rent for a typical one bedroom apartment at market rate is over $1,300. If you’re earning minimum wage in CA, which is $11, you would need to work at least two jobs to afford that apartment without being stretched to the limit. The Rent Relief Act would ease that burden,” she tweeted.

    The Rent Relief Act would use massive government subsidies to help distribute significant tax rebates to individuals whose living costs account for over 30% of their income.

  427. mnw says:

    lisab

    Remember “The Rent Is Too Damn High” Party & its candidate/spokesperson?

    Maybe he could be Harris’ VP.

  428. DW says:

    “SPREAD THE WEALTH: Sen. Harris Wants US TAXPAYERS to Subsidize California’s Rents”

    Maybe, just maybe the problem is liberalism in California, and not with the rest of the country? If its too bad of rent, people could move to another state…on second thought, I don’t want these people voting in other states. They just need to suck it up and live in the socialist utopia they voted for.

    Ironically Jimmy Milan is a Republican. Mnw.

    Such a “fake dossier” doesn’t exist. But one based on credible reports does. That some of it was paid for by the Democratic National Committee was known to the judges who agreed to the FISA warrants. If you read the redacted copies of said warrants, you will notice that right there in the footnotes that they did and most of the information was corroborated by many other sources.

So if Clinton folks paid a foreign spy to buy info from Russians, we can agree that there was collusion with the Russians to impact the election…ALL by the DEMS!

    If folks at the DOJ (Ohr) knew about the info Steele received from the Russians and Ohr’s wife was associated with the firm contracting this info from the spy, that then implicates the FBI.

    If this fact pattern existed in any other case, my bet is the sitting judge would throw it out or extremely penalize the prosecutors.

    Steele didn’t give his information to the Clinton campaign, he gave it to the FBI. The FBI gets it’s information from all sorts of sources, including the Mafia and MS-13. The fact pattern exists in most other cases of this type and they never throw out the evidence or penalize the prosecutors.

    The only way any of this wasn’t on the up and up would be if Steele made it up out of thin air and there was no corroboration whatsoever.

    AS I said before, Ohr has been a leading force in battling the Russian mob and has been very successful.

    Messy 470

    Steele is a retired spy! Being a British spy is irrelevant. That is not at issue. He was hired by Dem operatives, Fusion. He was commissioned by them to put together a dossier in June 2016. To think the folks paying Fusion (DNC and Clinton campaign) were not in the loop on his findings or scope of work is not credible.

    Ohr’s wife worked for Fusion, and her husband worked at the FBI. That appears to be a UGE conflict of interest here, especially since that was not disclosed to all, and he was demoted for related inappropriate behavior on advice of FBI and IG. To think this info between husband and wife was kept hush-hush between them is again not credible.

    Ohr’s FBI notes on Steele stated he loathed Trump and made statements about Trump should never be president. This shows extreme bias by someone who authored a report that has not been corroborated. It is doubtful if such info was provided to a FISA judge, the warrants would have been issued, especially since McCabe indicated under testimony that without this report, FISA warrants were not likely.

    Steele used his credentials and previous credibility with the FBI so as to insinuate the report could not be questioned, and was later fired by the FBI for misleading them which all suggests the report is questionable as well due to no corroboration, his hate, and his misleading the FBI. It appears he had an agenda and the FBI could no longer trust him or his credibility.

    Steele is a spy and his source of info in his report is from his personal contacts in Russia which presumes he did not get that info free, and then Fusion paid him for gathering info, and a Fusion was paid by the DNC and Clinton campaigns.

    Ohr being tough on Russian mobsters is not in question here, and has nothing to do with whether he behaved inappropriately in other investigations. McCabe had also claimed to have been unbiased in the Clinton investigation but the FBI and IG found him to have lied on a number of occasions so actions in one case does not mean corruption in others is not possible. This happens often in law enforcement where an otherwise good cop for years gets caught on one or two other incidents of corruption.

    CG is an alias.

  492. jason says:

    if Steele made it up out of thin air and there was no corroboration whatsoever.”

    Actually that is what happened.

    Steele is a paid political hack who is on record saying he would do anything to stop Trump from being President.

    His “dossier” is completely and utterly fake. It’s garbage paid for by the DNC.

    None of it is true. Zero, nada, zilch.

  493. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    To put things in perspective, it is important to remember some of the people praising McCain now were in the past saying awful things about him.

    1) Huffington Post 2008: “McCain Mentally Unfit To Be President”
    2) HuffPo 2012: McCain: “Racist and Woman Hater”
    3) HuffPo 2018: “Bipartisan American Hero”

    The New York Times did a grotesquely unfair hit peace on McCain in 2008.

  494. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Given the unusual times we are in, the only political pundits who I believe have any reliability at this point predicting the outcome of the 2018 election are the ones saying: “I don’t know.”

  495. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Nate Silver?@NateSilver538 7h7 hours ago

    This is true and indeed deserves more emphasis, but there are also close variations on this scenario where the GOP does all of the below—except it results in them getting clobbered in 2020.

    Nate Silver added,

    Matthew Yglesias

    Really worth emphasizing that there’s a good (~25%) chance Republicans hold the House, gain a senate seat or two, replace McCain/Flake/Corker with Trump loyalists, Mueller gets fired, Manafort gets pardoned, and then that’s game over — the coverup worked.

  496. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    508. “Piece” not “peace.”

    *indicates open seat

  500. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    The Washington Post/ ABC releases the most ridiculous agenda poll of this cycle. The Donald is underwater a whopping 60/38(RV’s) in his job performance. Everyone loves Sessions, Mueller and Cohen blah, blah, blah! Fake news and Fake Polling together!
    Robbie will be here in 3..2..1..

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/page/2010-2019/WashingtonPost/2018/08/31/National-Politics/Polling/question_20686.xml?uuid=UnUesq0MEeiafc0wUE_5Ag

  501. DW says:

    A D-Internal poll from FL_16 where the Dem is trying to get funding by showing the party bosses that he is close:

    FL_16

    Shapiro (D) 44%
    Buchanan (R) 48%

    A prior PPP poll showed the Republican up 12 points.

  502. Messy says:

    485. First off, most of the dossier has indeed been corroborated.

    Second, Fusion GPS is non-partisan. Their investigation into Trump was mostly paid for by REPUBLICANS, and was totally aboveboard, as is proven by pretty much everything that was released by Congress (leaks are anonymous).

    The FISA court would NOT issue a warrant without corroboration.

    507. Then how do you explain the fact that most of it has been corroborated?

    517. It is within the standard margin of error with the Suffolk and Ipsos polls.

  503. DW says:

    Speaking of Florida…

    BOOM!

    FL-07:

    Murphy (D) 47
    Miller (R) 46

    “StPetePolls, commissioned by Florida Politics, conducted a random telephone survey of 435 registered voters Thursday”
    http://stpetepolls.org/files/StPetePolls_2018_CD7_GEN_August30_O8Y5.pdf

    Check above to see how far below the magic line this seat is. And this is a St. Pete poll, not a campaign internal.

  504. jason says:

    “Here is the question: who questioned anything about McCain’s military record which would make you volunteer that information which is already common knowledge?”

    Translation: I hate it when someone brings up the true facts about McCain because then my petty attacks on him make me look like a jackass.

  505. Wes says:

    I predicted this in June:

    The NRCC is about to triage Barbara Comstock, my third favorite Congresswoman. Comstock is a great candidate, but Trump has hurt her greatly as President by ginning up the opposition in her district.

    I stills think Comstock would have won had Freitas been the nominee, but the VAGOP picked Corey Stewart for Senate. He was the final nail in her political coffin.

    God damn you, Corey Stewart.

  506. Wes says:

    On the other hand, the Koch Brothers are going to bat for Dave Brat.

    That should give him a much-needed boost.

  507. DW says:

    If there was a blue wave coming…how then FL_07 a tossup?

  508. jason says:

    So NYC, here’s the question?

    Why is the reminder of McCain’s sacrifices to his country so upsetting to you?

  509. DW says:

    I never understood the metaphor ‘triage’ when it comes to giving up on a candidate. I had thought triage was for the situation where there are multiple injured and you are helping each as best you can, and you stabilize some while you give care to the ones in most danger of dying.

    The better metaphor would be hospice. You put candidates on hospice when you know their time is up and they are going to lose. You just keep them comfortable but no longer spend effort to save them.

  510. Wes says:

    Combined, Republicans in the AZ Senate primary got ~503,000 votes. Meanwhile, the Dems has about 393,000 votes in their primary, a deficit of about 110,000 votes. That bodes well for McSally, suggesting Republicans and GOP-leaning voters in AZ (where Indies can vote in major-party primaries) are engaged in the process.

  511. jason says:

    First off, most of the dossier has indeed been corroborated.”

    Actually, NONE of it has been corroborated. Once it was proven that Steele was nothing more than a an agenda driven errand boy and paid political hack, bought by the DNC to spread lies about Trump, none of it has any value or merit.

    Second, Fusion GPS is non-partisa.

    LOL

    Sorry, that dog won’t hunt. The dossier had nothing to do with Republicans, completely and totally paid for by the DNC as a political hit piece.

    Look, go back and finish grade school on a remedial program, you are way over your head here.

  512. Wes says:

    Had, not had.

  513. jason says:

    God damn you, Corey Stewart.”

    Why blame him?

    Blame the deadender morons that voted for him.

  514. Wes says:

    Ugh, not has.

  515. Wes says:

    I think it’s because triage is both a noun and a verb while hospice is strictly a noun, DW.

  516. Wes says:

    Stewart’s the one running the campaign that will sink Comstock, Jason. That’s why I blame him.

  517. jason says:

    Obviously, this is not the right time to discuss Sen. McCain’s military record objectively.”

    Translation: I can’t wait to start attacking McCain’s military record again, despite NYC’s post that “nobody is attacking McCain’s military record”.

  518. jason says:

    “….McCain’s military record objectively.”

    Let’s make it clear the “objectively” here means attacking the service record of a true American hero, maimed, tortured and imprisoned for years in a North Vietnam hell hole, because you don’t agree with some his votes.

    “Objectively” my ass.

    Despicable.

  519. Wes says:

    This guy clearly doesn’t understand how campaign committees work:

    House-triage: I agree that deadwood members shoud be cut off. IMHO as a US house member you should have your own political infrastructure, be active in local and state politics (gerrymanders are great, as long as the courts keep them- PA GOP Hello!!!!) If you are too lazy to raise money and worked your district then the NRCC’s help can only get you so far. I’m sorry but I don’t see why the NRCC should help multi-term incumbents. Freshmen and open districts should be the focus.
    Barbara Comstock is 3 term member, former RNC official with a lot of connections. She can raise the money needed.
    Blum &Young especially Young seem lazy and complacent. I will put Brat and Culberson in the same group.
    PA- is going to be a disaster zone so resources should be sent there
    IMHO the NRCC and outside groups should be focused on districts in tough states (WA) or with tough races at the top of the ticket( IL, NY) . Of course there are other exemples but these 2 states come first to mind
    OPINION- there is a lack of discipline in the house R caucus. I think that Paul Ryan’s retirement badly hurt the Rs changes because it created a narrative that all is lost. Early resignations ( OH-12) also created that effect.

  520. Mr.Vito says:

    DW, because in triage you abandon those who are too far gone to be saved.

  521. jason says:

    Stewart’s the one running the campaign that will sink Comstock, Jason. That’s why I blame him.”

    I would only blame him if somehow he is different now than when he ran in the primary.

    Then you can allege he duped the voters.

    But since he is the exact same person saying the exact same things, I think he is completely blameless.

    The deadenders that voted for him got exactly what they voted for. They are to blame.

  522. Wes says:

    New thread.

  523. jason says:

    Triage basically means prioritizing, it doesn’t necessarily mean giving up on the patient (or the candidate).

  524. mnw says:

    48/50

    But… CNN/CNBC: “Support for Mueller & Sessions rises as Trump disapproval rises to 60”

    VA:

    How ’bout some thought that Stewart was obviously beatable in the GOP primary, but whoever Frietas is must’ve run a poor campaign?

    DW

    The House is hard to follow. The Senate less so, & there the GOP seems to me to be doing OK at least.

    Your point about FL-07 is well taken. Also, since it’s an RV poll,* perhaps it understates the R-inc’s support? Rarely do GOP incumbents do better with RVs than with LVs.

    *Why is anybody still polling RVs at this late date, I wonder? Because it’s cheaper, I guess.

  525. Wes says:

    It was decided by less than a point, Mnw. Stewart had a geographic and name ID advantage. I don’t know what else Freitas could have done when the voters wanted a racist clown rather than a noncomtroversial vet as their Senate nominee.

  526. Messy says:

    testing one two three.
