Democrats Lead Generic Ballot for US House

this morning we had polls from both NBC News/Wall Street Journal and Fox News showing Democrats with high single-digit leads in the Generic Congressional Vote.

US HOUSE – GENERIC BALLOT (NBC/WSJ)
Democrat 51%
Republican 43%

US HOUSE – GENERIC BALLOT (Fox News)
Democrat 49%
Republican 42%

Of course the only thing that matters this week is the Supreme Court hearing….

  1. Wes says:

    Those would be enough to flip the House.

  2. Hugh says:

    NBC’s poll is skewed to please the buyer. Always follow the money

  3. jason says:

    The NBC poll says Rs are almost tied in enthusiasm now, a big comeback from earlier polls.

    This is key.

  4. mnw says:

    I assume those 2 outfits are still doing RVs. RAS has it D+5 among LVs, so the 3 polls taken together seem somewhat consistent.

  5. Redmen4ever says:

    Certainly, NBC’s spread would flip the House. It would be a rout. Much more so even than the rout than 2006. In 2006, the Democrats “only” had a spread of 8 points. D+12 is a Democratic orgasm number. And, like Professor Ford’s recovered memory, it and other media and university live caller polls is contradicted by other evidence (anonymous polls, state and district polls. measures of consumer confidence, and the underlying economy).

  6. Wes says:

    Redmen, 51-43=8. I don’t know where you’re getting 12. For the record, I don’t think the spread is that big. I was just pointing out the House would flip under a 51-43 scenario.

  7. Redmen4ever says:

    Fox reports both RV and LV numbers, and Rs do a tad better with the LV numbers. There is no enthusiasm gap.

  8. michael corleone says:

    These numbers would flip the senate and House. Also worth noting that an ABC/WaPo poll had Trump down 12 about 10 days before the election so I do expect these numbers to tighten. I think D+5 is the key – that will flip the House if that is the spread on Election Day. D +7 gets the Senate. Below those thresholds we probably hold each respective body. The R rise in enthusiasm in the NBC poll is key and good for us, but we need more support among Indies. I’m hoping that there is a shy Tory vote as well since it certainly is not socially acceptable to support the GOP. Trump getting off twitter for a while would help too. I think the Kav hearing will work in our favor since this woman appears to be a big liar.

  9. Redmen4ever says:

    Regarding the Generic Congressional Ballot:

    Gap in 2006 (in the actual vote) was D+8

    https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/other/2006_generic_congressional_vote-2174.html

    Gap in just released NBC poll is D+12

    https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/polls/

    (You may be quoting the just released Fox poll.)

  10. Redmen4ever says:

    Going into this election, I thought D+4 would correspond to no net change of seats, and D+7 to a flip.

    Two years ago, the gap between the live caller polls and the anonymous polls tightened considerably during the final months. I take that to mean the media and university pollsters re-weighted their value scales from entertaining their readers to maintaining their reputations. I haven’t figured out how to “measure” this in a scientifically valid way. At this time, all I can really share is that there is a huge gap between these two methodologies.

  11. Wes says:

    Redmen, look at the polls headlining this thread. Fox says D49-R42. NBC says D51-R43. They’re right up there at the top of the thread.

  12. Wes says:

    All right. I guess Dave must have typed the numbers wrong since his link does say 52-40.

    For the record, D+12 would be better than what Dems enjoyed in 2008 when Dems won the House 53.2-42.6.

  13. jason says:

    The numbers are correct.. Dave has the LV numbers.

  14. jason says:

    The +12 is RVs.

  15. jason says:

    51-43 is correct for the NBC poll for LVs.

  16. jason says:

    It’s not a good number but it’s not insurmountable yet.

  17. Tina says:

    Alan Dershowitz: Every civil libertarian in the country, liberal, conservative, Republican, Democrat, led by the Civil Libertarian Union should be outraged by this demand. It is so un-American. You’re the accuser. You get on the witness stand. You testify. You make your accusation. You get cross-examined. THEN the accused responds. It turns the entire legal system on its head. It is INSANE to ask an accused person to deny the accusation before he has heard the accusation being made and cross-examined. Sure, the FBI should continue its background check. It should also call everyone else who may have been at this party. All of that is true. But the idea that he goes first? I want to hear from the American Civil Liberties Union. Where are they? This is the most fundamental denial of due process.

    Any comment on this from the 3 Cuckateers?

  18. Bitterlaw says:

    Would somebody please reweight the polls? These make me sad. Step up, HHR.

  19. NYCmike says:

    Stick with your polls like you did in 2016.

    Economy is booming, people are working and getting raises, and there are overwhelming numbers in large urban areas, just like in 2016, that will poll better for the Democrats than for the Republicans.

    You know what my belief is? The NY Daily News is NOT leading with Kavanaugh – to me, that means that this issue is NOT a good one for Democrats, and will only lead to increased Republican turnout.

    I remain hopeful that House will not flip.

  20. Robbottie says:

    These polls are trash. The reputable polls have the Democrats up double digits. I would reweight them to about a 12-14 point lead.

    No way the GOP gains 4 points on the LV screen. The GOP is far more depressed. It is sad to see these polling outfits going the way of Rasmussen.

  21. NYCmike says:

    OR, you can join Robbie in sandbagging Kavanaugh……for his innocence, Trump for his bloviating-ness, and the House because…….well, because that meanie Trump beat JEB!2016 and it is so wrong!

  22. Robbottie says:

    These NBC and FOX t@int-lickers have the same LV number for the GOP as that joke pollster Selzer. Give me a break.

  23. Wobbles says:

    “OR, you can join Robbie in sandbagging Kavanaugh……for his innocence, Trump for his bloviating-ness, and the House because…….well, because that meanie Trump beat JEB!2016 and it is so wrong!”

    Sniff…well said. I might be getting obsolete.

    -I’ll post this for Robbie, just to have him react to Tammy Bruce for some statement she made in the past.

  25. Wes says:

    This is from the link in 26:

    If Jennifer Rubin is actually a conservative then we’re a ninja leprechaun mime.

    Awesome!

  26. mnw says:

    I’m most interested in these 2 polling outfits, based on my observations concerning their superior outcomes in the past: Selzer & Rasmussen.

    Last night, Selzer reported the (R) gov in IA is losing by 2-3 pos among LVs. Not good news at all, although I never heard of the appointed GOP gov before. The internals & commentary were even worse for the (R) gov than the top line was.

    I believe every word, & I take it at face value as 100% credible.

    What exactly am I “reweighting” here, BL?

    Btw, do you ever read DW’s posts about polls, ever?

  27. Bitterlaw says:

    Touchdown in Wentzlvania!

  28. mnw says:

    30 sb “2-3 pts”

  29. Bitterlaw says:

    mnw – I was making a comment about the general HHR trend to reweight polls. It was not specific to you so GFY. I do hope you have a good day.

    I will admit that while I appreciate the effort, I do scroll past DW’s multi-Congressional District posts.

    NBC/WSJ poll 52 to 40 congressional ballot

    https://www.nbcnews.com/meet-the-press/video/poll-democrats-open-largest-margin-ever-over-gop-in-congressional-preference-1327207491679?v=raila&

    not sure why it is different than above, but it was reported as 52 to 40

  32. lisab says:

    same broadcast says trump’s numbers are stable

    so the hit is to congress

    due to kavanaugh perhaps?

  33. Redmen4ever says:

    NBC: RV D+12, LV D+7 [1]
    Fox: RV D+6, LV D+7
    Harris Interactive (the new Raz) RV D+6, LV D+7

    [1] NBC LV result stated in the flow of the text in the NBC News story.

  34. lisab says:

    CNN Poll: More approve of Mueller than of Trump

    Special counsel Robert Mueller’s approval rating for handling the Russia investigation stands at 50% in a new CNN Poll conducted by SSRS. That outpaces President Donald Trump’s approval rating on the matter by 20 points.

  35. lisab says:

    REPUBLICAN WOMEN ON KAVANAUGH ASSAULT CLAIMS: ‘WHAT BOY HASN’T DONE THIS IN HIGH SCHOOL?’

  36. lisab says:

    Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) on Sunday called Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s trustworthiness into question, saying that his career as a judge undercuts the credibility of his denial of sexual misconduct allegations made against him.

    “I put his denial in the context of everything that I know about him in terms of how he approaches his cases. His credibility is already very questionable in my mind and in the minds of a lot of my fellow Judiciary Committee members,” Hirono said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

  37. lisab says:

    Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) on Sunday accused Senate Republicans of having “predetermined” the outcome of an upcoming hearing related to sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

    Murray said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that Republicans on the Judiciary Committee have made the hearing a “he said, she said” by not calling for an FBI investigation or for testimony from witnesses other than Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford.

    “The way the Senate Republicans have now set this up, that is what we’re going to have. Do you believe her or do you believe him? That is exactly why we have been pressing for an FBI investigation that should only take a few days, so there are other facts out there — that there are other witnesses,” Murray said.

    “The Senate Republicans have predetermined the outcome that this will be a he said, she said by taking that away,” Murray added.

  38. Wes says:

    Mnw, I just checked on RRH to see the Kavanaugh discussion. As usual, RH “Republican” Vastblightkingconspiracy was declaring the GOP is about to suffer the worst election cycle in history. Even the mods got tired of his pseudoconservative Dem-cheerleading schtick and told him to stop.

    That’s pretty bad when a poster cheers for the Dems so much the mods have to put a stop to it.

  39. Wes says:

    I guess Patty Murray doesn’t know every rape case where the accused denies being the perpetrator is a he said/she said unless/until corroborating evidence against him/her surfaces.

  40. Gpo says:

    Where are we now in terms of a vote .is there a vote still scheduled for tomorrow?

  41. Tgca says:

    Cuarenta cinco mi amigos.

  42. Robbie says:

    Now that Republicans have caved on almost every demand made by the accuser, the chances Kavanaugh’s nomination fails remain good. I continue to believe it’s highly unlikely they will give the accuser a national platform to say she was assaulted by Kavanaugh only to vote four days late to confirm him in committee. In today’s era, it just defies logic.

    I’ve never seen a majority kowtow to the minority in such a way. I guess we have Jeff Flake to thank for that.

  43. Cash Cow TM says:

    Well these poll showing the generic R/D split to be what you would expect when 35,000 people died in Puerto Rico hurricane back when….

  44. Cash Cow TM says:

    “REPUBLICAN WOMEN ON KAVANAUGH ASSAULT CLAIMS: ‘WHAT BOY HASN’T DONE THIS IN HIGH SCHOOL?’”

    Walt says he knows one boy that did not do what is alleged.
    #########################################
    But he also says that does not mean that someone might not allege that that boy did that and 10 times worse.

  45. Cash Cow TM says:

    It is a shame that the hurricane caused 350,000 deaths in Puerto Rico…and Trump refuses to acknowledge that…

  46. dblaikie says:

    This is for Bitter, I don’t reweigh, I ignore polls by outfits like CNN and NBC. If a person believes they are biased in their reporting why should I believe that they are unbiased in their polling. Besides these polls are all over the map, but one thing seems to ever happen and that is report polls like Seltzer that predict something different. If three generic polls are reported one showing 3 points, one 8 points and the last 14 points you can bet that everyone (including Fox) is going to lead with the 14 point poll as the one to consider. It makes me sick.

    Frankly I believe that things are pretty good for Kavanaugh. All the named witnesses don’t remember anything. It is obvious that the last thing that the Ford team want to happen is let her come and testify. Folks, just let this play out! Have a little bit, just a tiny bit of faith that the truth whatever it is will be revealed. Quit obsessing over polls that are all over the map resulting in the real fact that we have no idea where this election is going. Go to the grill, put on a ribeye steak, bake a potato, grab a nice single malt (neat) and enjoy the day. That is just what I am going to do.

  47. NYCmike says:

    This is specifically addressed to Robbie, “CG”, MD, Author, and any other #NeverTrumpers:

    After watching this spectacle, it should be plain for all of you to see that Trump has easily been passed over (not that I thought this episode was needed to show this) by the whole of the Democratic Party in terms of being an amoral, disgusting, unqualified for office individual.

    When faced with giving support to Republicans, AND TRUMP, seeing Democrats and this Senate confirmation hearing clearly shows who the enemy is, and that Trump’s issues are nothing compared to the evil that is the Democratic Party today.

  48. dblaikie says:

    “but one thing that never seems to ever happen” Sorry for the typo

  49. NYCmike says:

    dblaikie,

    Thank you for being the opposite of Robbie, who is the quickest gun in the west when someone is needed to be thrown overboard!

  50. Cash Cow TM says:

    It is a shame that 3,500,000 Puerto Ricans lost their lives in that hurricane…

  51. Bitterlaw says:

    I do not know what is going to happen in the elections. If the GOP is routed, a lot of people are going to have to admit Robbie was right. If the GOP holds the House and Senate, Robbie should just leave. Something in-between and the fighting continues through 2020,

  52. Robbie says:

    – Just to be clear, I have never predicted the Senate will turn over. In fact, I have suggested Republicans could lose 40 House seats and actually gain two or three Senate seats.

    What Republicans desperately need is just a small turn in the polling back to them late in the process. Just a two or three point swing could be the difference between a narrowly divided House or one that gives Democrats a 40 seat pickup.

    My base case right now is we’ll either end up in something approaching a tied House (5 seats either way) or Democrats will win the vast majority of close races and have nice sized majority. Something like 235 to 200?

  53. Redmen4ever says:

    538 now has the LV for the NBC poll; but, apparently doesn’t know that the number of LVs is given in the endnote to the NBC news article. RCP, on the other hand, gives the number.

  54. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    55. “I do not know what is going to happen in the elections.”

    Totally agree. No one does.

    Saying that, usually election results are a mixed bag, and everyone can claim they were right to an extent. Robbie’s election predictions appear pretty reasonable — Democrats take the House and Republicans hold the Senate and possibly gain a couple of seats. My feeling is his prediction that the Democrats will gain 40 house seats is a bit high, but believe there is a good chance they get a majority.

  55. lisab says:

    if the gop allows kavanaugh to go down

    they deserve to be routed

    there is no evidence against him. there will never be a gop judge confirmed again if they can be taken down by 35 yo allegations without any evidence

  56. lisab says:

    has any dem politician

    pointed out the problem with allowing

    someone to be convicted without evidence?

  57. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    59. By watching the Republican Senators in action you can see why Obama was able to manipulate and ignore them throughout his presidency. It also explains why Republican voters totally rejected the Republican establishment in the 2016 election, and are now overwhelming behind Trump.

    However, McConnell has to make sure he has the votes to approve Kavanaugh, and so probably has no choice but to engage in this soap opera. Hopefully he has a bigger majority after the November elections.

  58. lisab says:

    the dems should let the gop win in ca governors race

    then they could blame the problems on the gop

  59. lisab says:

    isn’t someone calling flake and collins and saying

    “your free trips to hawaii depend on kavanaugh being confirmed”

  60. Wes says:

    Deadenders cost Senate Republicans two seats in 2016 and 2017 (NH and AL). If Ayotte and Strange were in the Senate now, Republicans would have 53 seats—enough of a cushion not to have to kowtow to Flake. That’s not even accounting for all the seats they cost us with O’Donnell, Buck, Mourdock, and Akin among others.

    For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

    Thanks, Deadenders!

  61. Hugh says:

    Wes. So true

  62. mnw says:

    But for Moore being a Class A perv, he’d be in the Senate right now, & you know it, Wes.

  63. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Its time to hear again from Lord Ashcroft, whom Robbie holds in high regard. This is from March 2018:

    “Do not doubt Donald Trump – he could easily be re-elected
    Thursday, 29 March, 2018 in Ashcroft In America
    “How to resolve this contradiction? The only available answer is that the people who put him there must have been a collection of the deplorable and the dim. Some of this is evident in the current frenzy over Facebook, Cambridge Analytica and data-led message targeting: there is a clear subtext that many Trump supporters were gullible people, easily led astray by whatever nonsense was put in front of them. The cynics, then, don’t just underestimate the president, they underestimate his voters. As they say in America, not a good look — and one that repels the part of his coalition, chiefly those who previously backed Obama and picked Trump only as the lesser of two evils, who are open to an alternative.
    Meanwhile, most of those who chose him see President Trump doing his best to keep his promises with precious little help from the professional political class. His actions may be worthy or wicked, and might lead to triumph or disaster — but anyone who thinks he doesn’t know what he’s doing is 180 degrees wrong.”

  64. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    66. “But for Moore being a Class A perv, he’d be in the Senate right now, & you know it,”

    Are you insinuating that Bill Clinton is only a Class B perv, so was electable?

  65. lisab says:

    one thing the dem politicians always understood is that they live and die with the president

    the gop does not understand that

  66. Wes says:

    Actually, Mnw, polling said Moore was in a dogfight before the revelations about his salacious past. Being a sanctimonious lawbreaker will do that. Moore was known as the weakest candidate in that primary. He probably still would have won though had he not given Alabamans every reason possible to vote for a Sanders-style moonbat over him. Sadly he was the one the GOP went with. I have no sympathy for his loss and make no excuses for it. He got exactly what he deserved.

  67. Mr.Vito says:

    If you want this to end, find 35-year-old unsubstantiated allegations against Jeff Flake denied by four witnesses and see how he feels about that.

  68. jason says:

    But for Moore being a Class A perv, he’d be in the Senate right now, & you know it, Wes.”

    Actually, if he had respect for the rule of law and the Constitution and hadn’t lost his AL supreme court seat twice, he might have even survived the orchestrated sex charges.

    So no, it’s not just that. He was completely unqualified to be a US senator.

  69. Wes says:

    In a state that’s 26% Black, Moore said blacks were better off during slavery than now. He had barely won in 2012 even as Romney crushed Obama by 26 points in Alabama. He was twice removed from the Supreme Court for being a sanctimonious, lawbreaking theocrat. All of this made him a weak frontrunner against a man any other Republican would have crushed by at least 20 points.

    He was doing his best to ensure Alabamans had multiple reasons to vote against him. The revelations about his ephebophilia were just the final straw for an abysmally weak candidate.

  70. jason says:

    Being a sanctimonious lawbreaker will do that.”

    Right, when you swear to uphold the law and have no respect for the law and repeatedly dishonor your position as a member of the AL supreme court, THAT is why you are a weak candidate.

  71. jason says:

    mnw can never resist defending a deadender.

  72. Paul says:

    73: I agree. I think the slavery comment was as big a deal in Alabama as the accusations. It just wasn’t as salacious and got less national attention.

  73. Cash Cow TM says:

    It is hard to believe that 35,000,000 people in Puerto Rico died from the hurricane…but I know it was Trump;s fault.

  74. jason says:

    and got less national attention.”

    Zzzzz…. you mean the dishonest, biased and partisan MSM didn’t choose to orchestrate an attack on him on that issue.

  75. jason says:

    What is sad about PR is that so many of the people who died don’t even know it.

  76. Mr.Vito says:

    NBC poll shows same as yougov…

    Men, whites, seniors higher level of interest in the election.

    Well below the average: nonwhite, Independents, Young Voters

    Republicans who are convinced the news and polls are fake and there’s no need to engage are in for a rude awakening. The number one fear of GOP consultants right now is that GOP voters stay home because they think the news is lying to them about the midterms.

  80. jason says:

    Well, if they stay home they are idiots.

    Yes, the MSM is skewed towards making it look like the Dems have already won, but nobody voted yet.

    “Yes, the MSM is skewed towards making it look like the Dems have already won, but nobody voted yet.”

    That’s not what he’s saying.

    He is saying they think the GOP is doing fine because the polls are lying, and so they don’t need to show up. (kind of bizarre)

    “A school bus driver in Indiana is under arrest after students filmed her allowing kids to drive the bus.

    Joandrea Dehaven McAtee, 27, was arrested on Friday and charged with felony neglect of a dependent.

    According to police, McAtee allowed three students — an 11-year-old, 13-year-old and 17-year-old — to drive the school bus for short distances Thursday in rural Valparaiso, Indiana. There were other students on the bus at the time, some of whom recorded the incident.”

    This has a broader reach than Kavanaugh. Dems want future potential nominees to look at these shenanigans and refuse to accept so as to avoid having their reputations dragged through the mud.

  98. Hugh says:

    Very true but I think the committee will handle this differently going forward. I suggest the most conservative female they can find and cannot through. I still think bk gets in. And if he does we will net a couple more Senate seats.

    I suspect Kavanaugh will be out before the Thursday hearing. This latest claim is probably trash, but he’s taken on a lot of water. It’s probably all lies, but you’re asking weak kneed Republicans like Flake, Collins, and Murkowski to ignore the press. That’s something they never do.

    Now what the Republicans must do is promise to confirm another choice in the lame duck as retribution for this character assassination.

    – Hey, dipsh!t. I was a proponent of Kavanaugh in July when Trump chose him. I want him on the Supreme Court. But you tell me, Trump populist troll. How does this nomination go forward with all of this BS floating around and Flake, Collins, and Murkowski being the deciding votes?

  105. Robbie says:

    Once Republicans decided to play ball with the first accuser, they opened the door for the rest of these liars to come forward. Senate Republicans, in their effort to placate suburban women, scuttled Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

    I have no doubt these charges are BS, but the damage is done.

  106. CG says:

    Again, calm down…

    I don’t know what else I can say. Whatever circus happens on Thursday, there is still no reason to believe that Kavanaugh will not be confirmed and that every Republican Senator will vote to do so, especially Jeff Flake. Calm down… Sure, bad things can happen, but its pointless to assume it’s destiny. Now, just hope Donald Trump keeps his mouth shut on these matters. Even better, Trump should just resign.

    Also, the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago Bears are both in first place at the same time.

    If Trump nominates Amy Coney Barrett, we’ll see the same BS stories as soon as her confirmation comes up for a vote. You can bet Democrats are already coaching her former student to claim she forced men to have sex with her in order to earn A’s in her class.

    This is why Republicans never should have played ball with Barrett. The moment they agreed to placate her demands, they scuttled Kavanaugh.

  110. Phil says:

    Relax. Kavanaugh will be confirmed. Democrats were already motivated to turn out. This circus motivates our side.

  111. Robbie says:

    Trump should nominate Amy Coney Barrett and then McConnell should simply call for a floor vote to confirm her that day as retribution for this character assassination. Forget holding hearings, just confirm her.

  112. CG says:

    She would be the one that would make it tougher for Murkowski and Collins to vote to confirm.

    I am going to go ahead and predict right here that Kavanuagh wins Senate confirmation with approximately 53 votes, whether the public opinion polls support it or not.

    If Kavanaugh is innocent, as I suspect he is, and he is intelligent, as I believe he is, he can use his time in the public spotlight to defend his integrity to great effect.

  113. Tina says:

  115. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    Relax folks. There is no collaboration for Ms.Ramirez, who admits being drunk as a skunk and fuzzy with the facts until she spoke with her attorney. Every individual Ramirez names sides with Kavanaugh. Here is the key paragraph:

    “In a statement, two of those male classmates who Ramirez alleged were involved the incident, the wife of a third male student she said was involved, and three other classmates, Dino Ewing, Louisa Garry, and Dan Murphy, disputed Ramirez’s account of events: “We were the people closest to Brett Kavanaugh during his first year at Yale. He was a roommate to some of us, and we spent a great deal of time with him, including in the dorm where this incident allegedly took place. Some of us were also friends with Debbie Ramirez during and after her time at Yale. We can say with confidence that if the incident Debbie alleges ever occurred, we would have seen or heard about it—and we did not. The behavior she describes would be completely out of character for Brett. In addition, some of us knew Debbie long after Yale, and she never described this incident until Brett’s Supreme Court nomination was pending. Editors from the New Yorker contacted some of us because we are the people who would know the truth, and we told them that we never saw or heard about this.”

    I understand your frustration and concern. They will do this with any SCOTUS nominee.

    In fact, Ms. Ramirez was so appalled at Kavanaugh that years later she posed,smiling, for a photograph with him according to the article.

    “Ramirez said that she continued to socialize with one of the male classmates who had egged Kavanaugh on during the party during college; she even invited the classmate to her house for Thanksgiving one year, after he told her that he had nowhere to go. She also attended his wedding, years later, as a guest of his wife, and said that she posed for photographs with Kavanaugh, smiling.”

However, to bring this kind of sensational garbage to the table, is beyond the pale of decency. I’m disgusted with the lot of them! They are ruining a man’s life, his career etc., just to gain some kind of political advantage. Creeps, all of them!

    How so?

    Six disprove it.

    Nobody proves it.

  126. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    aul Mirengoff over at Powerline points out what I and others here have been saying:

    First, Ramirez says she was completely inebriated when the misconduct supposedly occurred.

    Second, she told the New Yorker she wasn’t certain what happened until “after six days of talking with her attorney” a former elected Democrat. According to Farrow and Mayer, “in her initial conversations with The New Yorker, [Ramirez] was reluctant to characterize Kavanaugh’s role in the alleged incident with certainty.” But one can do plenty of brain washing in six days.

    We’ve all heard of the “MeToo” movement. Now we have the “MeToo, My Democrat Attorney Thinks” movement.

    Third, Ramirez doesn’t even claim she saw Kavanaugh do anything; only that someone yelled out that Brett had done something.

    Fourth, none of the other dozen people the New Yorker contacted said that Kavanaugh was even at the party where the misconduct allegedly occurred, let alone that misconduct actually occurred.

    Fifth, multiple other students went on the record disputing that this happened.

    I hope Chuck Grassley and Mitch McConnell are proud of themselves for feeling obligated to give the original accuser a hearing in which she got every demand she wanted even though there wasn’t a bit of corroboration.

    Republicans made the mistake of believing their was a modicum of good will being exhibited by the accuser and the Democrats involved.

  168. Phil says:

    No, SD. The American people love a BELIEVABLE scandal. When you overplay your hand it ceases to be believable.

    I do agree with Robbie about one thing. Republicans should have shut this circus down ten days ago. On the other hand, I’m starting to enjoy Democrats making themselves look mean, desperate, and ridiculous all at the same time. This will boomerang on them.

  169. Robbie says:

    I’ll repeat what i wrote earlier.

    If Kavanaugh drops out, Trump should nominate Barrett and the moment he does McConnell should bypass the hearing process and bring the new nomination immediately to the floor.

  170. Robbie says:

    Does anyone think Chairman Feinstein or Chairman Leahy ever would have granted an accuser of a Democrat nominee this kind of opportunity? Does anyone thing a Democrat would have joined with Republicans to make it happen as Flake did?

  171. Robbie says:

    One thing Trump gets about politics that Republicans never have is you gain nothing by negotiating in good faith. If you give an inch, Democrats will take a mile. Grassley, forced by Flake, gave an inch when he offered Ford a hearing and then repeatedly caved on deadlines and eventually gave her everything she wanted.

    That is a really interesting thought. A lot troll types are now pushing the idea the nomination needs to be withdrawn.

    At this point, the nomination needs to be taken to a vote. If the vote fails, then it needs to become a major election issue in the Midterms.

    Trump can run things ignoring the House the way Obama did, through executive orders. The Democrats are going to be in internal discord between the left and the extreme left. Trump can play them off against each other. The far left will want free medical care, free college, open borders. It will be quite a show. Maxine Waters and Nancy Pelosi are going to slug it out.

    Yes, and for 12 years it had been lead by a wartime president who was not exactly bashful in exercising power, and who had some novel ideas on how to deal the Supreme Court (one of his few policy initiatives that failed.) Ronald Reagan even quoted him during his nomination speech.

    Trump is taking on a entrenched decadent and corrupt system; which has been trying to destroy him since the day he took office. Agree it would be nice if he could more conform to how we believe the government should run. But at this point he is trying to steer a ship that has badly lost its way back to the proper course. He is a nasty, awful person, but a good ship captain.

    WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE ALLEGATIONS MADE IN THE NEW YORKER ARTICLE ON JUDGE BRETT KAVANAUGH

    “This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen. The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so. This is a smear, plain and simple. I look forward to testifying on Thursday about the truth, and defending my good name—and the reputation for character and integrity I have spent a lifetime building—against these last-minute allegations.” – Judge Brett Kavanaugh

    The accuser, Deborah Ramirez, admits in The New Yorker’s piece that there were “significant gaps” in her memories about the event.

    “She was at first hesitant to speak publicly, partly because her memories contained gaps because she had been drinking at the time of the alleged incident.”
    “Ramirez acknowledged that there are significant gaps in her memories of the evening…”
    By The New Yorker’s own admission, Ramirez was reluctant to speak with certainty on the allegation.

    “In her initial conversations with The New Yorker, she was reluctant to characterize Kavanaugh’s role in the alleged incident with certainty.”
    It took six days of “assessing her memories” for Ramirez to say she recalled Kavanaugh committing the alleged incident, and that came only after consulting with an attorney provided by the Democrats.

    “After six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney, Ramirez said that she felt confident enough of her recollections…”
    “Senate aides from Ramirez’s home state of Colorado alerted a lawyer, Stanley Garnett, a former Democratic district attorney in Boulder, who currently represents her.”
    The New Yorker admits it has not confirmed through eyewitnesses Kavanaugh was even present at the party and other students who knew Kavanaugh said they never heard of the incident.

    “The New Yorker has not confirmed with other eyewitnesses that Kavanaugh was present at the party.”
    “In a statement, two of those male classmates who Ramirez alleged were involved in the incident, the wife of a third male student she said was involved, and three other classmates, Dino Ewing, Louisa Garry, and Dan Murphy, disputed Ramirez’s account of events…”
    “We were the people closest to Brett Kavanaugh during his first year at Yale. He was a roommate to some of us, and we spent a great deal of time with him, including in the dorm where this incident allegedly took place.”
    “Some of us were also friends with Debbie Ramirez during and after her time at Yale. We can say with confidence that if the incident Debbie alleges ever occurred, we would have seen or heard about it—and we did not.”
    Further, those classmates said that the allegations in the story would be completely out of character for Kavanaugh.

    “The behavior she describes would be completely out of character for Brett.”
    A former student who was best friends with Ramirez said she never told her about the incident despite how close they were.

    “The former friend who was married to the male classmate alleged to be involved, and who signed the statement, said of Ramirez, ‘This is a woman I was best friends with. We shared intimate details of our lives. And I was never told this story by her, or by anyone else. It never came up. I didn’t see it; I never heard of it happening.’”

    The Latest: Trump says Kavanaugh allegations ‘political’

    34 minutes ago
    https://apnews.com/5ad4d1f1b9b543e786c1842db67de7f3Link copied!
    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh (all times local):

    9:04 a.m.

    President Donald Trump is pledging his support for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, saying the sexual misconduct allegations against his choice are “totally political.”

    Trump, at the United Nations in New York, declared that Kavanaugh is “outstanding,” and added, “I am with him all the way.”

    He spoke as Kavanaugh’s nomination appeared in peril after The New Yorker published the account of a second woman who says he exposed himself to her while they were students at Yale. The woman said Kavanaugh forced her to come in contact with his penis while both were inebriated at a party.

    The first accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, has said Kavanaugh assaulted her in high school. She says he covered her mouth and tried to remove her clothing. Ford and Kavanaugh are expected to testify on Thursday.
