Collins Leads Gideon By 22% in ME

Susan Collins is apparently still doing a decent job of separating herself from Donald Trump as she holds a commanding lead over Democrat Sara Gideon, who is the Speaker of the House in Maine according to the article, in a hypothetical match up according to a new poll from Pan Atlantic Research.

US SENATE – MAINE (Pan Atlantic Research)
Susan Collins (R-inc) 51%
Sara Gideon (D) 29%

This poll was done March 4-13 among 500 likely voters.

    Wes predicted Collins wasn’t in much trouble.

    He is beyond brilliant!

  3. NYCmike says:

    -David-Duke-Lite is a horrible immoral person, quite possibly racist and anti-semitic, at the least, a bigot!*


  4. NYCmike says:

    One thing about the GND vote – not that it was a very difficult vote, but noticed that Senator Sinema voted against it. She has been more independent than most Dem Senators in her first months…..and I do like her taste in clothing, which is quite different than the other female members.

    -This is awesome!

    yes, but Corey predicted hillary would take utah! now that is something special

    Corey says:

    As of today, I think Trump takes AL, AR, ID, KS, KY, LA, MS, MT, NE (statewide), ND, OK, SC, SD, TN, TX, WV, and WY.

    That’s it. 17 states. May even wind up less. I am not going to do the math.

    Ok, I did the math 401-136. Maybe McMullin takes Utah and holds Hillary under 400.


    The national popular vote margin is going to be closer to 14 than it will be to 4, which was the margin between Obama and Romney.

    Several polls are already showing a double digit Clinton national lead. My theory is that in the final week to final few days, the reluctant left-leaning “undecideds” in the polls will “come home” to Hillary, Trump will be lashing out even more frantically, and her massive, beyond words, organizational advantages will translate to a popular vote margin of about 14.

    -The last 2 years of Robbie’s and “CG”‘s lives, condensed into a little over 3 minutes.

  11. Phil says:

    Yeah, and Robbie and Saint half-truth were happy to absorb all their crap like a sponge and then spread it around.

  12. Tina says:

    Saint half truth.

    Thst is not nice

    He has gop vanity plates (yeah right).

  13. Wes says:

    I don’t know if you’re being facetious or serious, Mikey, but I’ve always thought Collins is essentially unbeatable in ME. She beat the best the Dems could throw at her in 2008 of all years, carrying every county in the state.

    Since Kavanaugh hasn’t triggered the apocalypse the Dems predicted I imagine Collins will still be safe next year, especially since ME is trending incrementally rightward.

  14. Tina says:



    Came out strongly for Kavanaugh when the Alaskan sea porker failed us,

  15. Phil says:

    Democrats have a decent chance to win senate seats in Colorado and Arizona. That would be two. They also will make pushes in Georgia, Texas, NC, and Kansas but will be underdogs in those states. Everywhere else they are dead in the water. Also realize that they will absolutely start out with a loss of the Alabama seat.

  16. mnw says:

    Depressing article in The Hill about how AZ is turning blue!– NOT because “the mountain west hates Trump,” but because of…. a tidal wave of immigration.

    The American population is being replaced by a new & improved version. I’ve been analogizing this to the “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” film for about 20 years, so far.

  17. Phil says:


    Of course. It’s math…..but I get called out nightly for pointing out exactly what is in the Hill article. It’s already destroyed California and California is the left’s model for the nation. It’s a one party state now. Importation of future Democratic voters. It certainly has worked in California. It’s the future of Texas and once that happens you’ll never see a Republican President get to 270. Math is stubborn. The Robbies and Saint Half-truths on this site can poo poo illegal immigration all they want, but there is a reason Democrats are all open borders and the reason is obvious. It’s about electoral power. Nothing more and nothing less.

  19. CG says:

    Why in the world would I be on the West Side, unless I was attending an event at the United Center? The area around the arena always has a heavy police presence and the affluent crowds that go to events there tend to feel pretty safe.

    I hope you extend the same well-wishes towards the decent law-abiding people who are far from wealthy and much more at risk, whether they ultimately wind up voting “socialist” or not.

  20. NYCmike says:

    I lived thru NYC in the 70’s into the early 90’s, until Rudy.

    Chicago most likely won’t have a Republican to save them.

    The “West Side” area will start to expand, just like the bad areas in NYC expanded, until all areas were no-go-zones at certain times of the day/night.

    Good luck.

  21. CG says:

    Do you not realize that I have always lived in the suburbs?

    In the meantime, your fellow Eye-Talians are getting gunned down in their driveway in Staten Island.

    Go Cubs!

  22. Tgca says:

    Screw Chicago! Could care less about it. I rank it under Berkeley.

  24. lisab says:

    Corey says:

    Sanders never had a chance against Clinton in the primaries. She demonstrated considerable political weaknesses and there are real signs of division going on in the party, which will become even more apparent in the near future, but she won fair and square.

  25. lisab says:

    Corey says:


    “It would take a fascinating scenario — in which much of the technical detail of how we select presidents comes into play — for McMullin to be sworn in as the 45th president, but the chances of its happening are slim, not none. Indeed, his chances of at least making things very interesting may be as high as 1 to 3 percent — about the same as the odds of the Cubs’ coming back to beat the Giants on Monday.”

  26. lisab says:

    Corey says:

    Off the top of my head, he loses NC and NE 2 for sure and probably Georgia and Utah at this point. States like Missouri will be true tossups and I think at the end, a whole bunch of other states, including Indiana will be up in the air.

  27. lisab says:

    Corey says:

    For crying out loud, Utah is a tossup. So are Arizona and Georgia.

    He won’t lose 49 states but he will lose more states than any major party nominee since Dukakis in ’88 and will have the lowest share of the popular vote for any major party nominee since Bush in ’92.

  28. lisab says:

    Corey says:

    “So, maybe Republicans are going to GAIN seats in the Senate while Trump loses by 12? I mean, what the ‘heck’ is going on?”

    My dream scenario to be sure, although I am still standing by a 14 point loss right now.

  29. Bitterlaw says:

    I don’t know why Phil even wakes up every day. The country is DOOMED. Of course, it has been DOOMED fairly regularly since 1775 but this time, according to Phil, it is really, really DOOMED.

    Being the sunny, optimistic person I am, I reject this prediction of DOOM. Numbers don’t lie but people are not numbers. Until scientists find a liberal gene, I am not giving up.

  30. lisab says:

    Corey says:

    As of today, I think Trump wins AL, AR, ID, KY, LA, MS, NE (statewide), ND, OK, SD, TN, WV, and WY.

    Everything else is probably at least up in the air.

  31. lisab says:

    Corey says:

    The new NBC poll is making my months- long prediction of 52-38 look pretty possible.

  32. mnw says:


    You do really valuable work exposing that little fool.

  33. lisab says:

    i don’t think of it as work,

    more like amusing reading

  34. lisab says:

    plus with 2020 looming

    those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it,

    btw, did you know cutler was a top 7 quarterback?

    Good for you, bitter. Keep hope alive.

    Doomed? Naw, you’ll live under one party leftist government but at least you’ll be alive. Me, I’m older than you so i’ll Be in the ground and will actually miss out on the new utopian America. Enjoy.

  37. mnw says:


    I told him I knew the DEM nominee running against IL GOP Rep. Mike Bost (R-inc). I told him this one was just not happening for the DEMs. I linked to Bost’s DEVASTATING attack ads– (think Hiroshima).

    Troll-Corey responded at great & FIERY length about how this one was destined to be REALLY close; what a profoundly great candidate Brendan Kelly was*; what an incredible fundraiser!; how unpopular & controversial Bost was.

    Bost won by 12 points. What did troll-Corey say? “I never actually said Kelly would win!”

    *he was right awrful, as the Brits say.

  38. lisab says:

    yes, that is why he is called half-truth corey

    he is clintonesque in his words

    for example in 33, he said trump would win 13 states, the rest were “up in the air”

    and i am sure he will claim that he was right …

  39. CG says:

    Bost won by 6.2 percent. Definitely not 12 percent. That was after winning by 14 in 2016. All I had said was that Kelly would come closer and had raised a lot more money than the previous opponent. You are a little off mnw, in more ways than one.

    I was certainly off in the 2016 Presidential “prediction” thing as were many people. My personal loathing of Trump probably colored that, but of course 4 Pinnochio lisab is deliberately cutting words out of sentences. That is why she can never actually link to the post or show the dates or times, etc. That’s fine that she has so much time on her hands. Of course, she also predicted every day for months that nobody on here knew what they were talking about because Rand Paul would be the GOP nominee in 2016 because the callers on the Howie Carr show liked him.

    We all make mistakes in predictions. In Congressional races though, in 2016 and 2018, nobody did better than me. We will see what happens in 2020.

  40. lisab says:

    oh i could …

  42. CG says:

    Accidentally cutting words out of sentences? Sentences out of paragraphs?

    Just post a hyperlink to the whole thread so there can be no confusion and we can also see what everyone else was saying at the same time, including you. We can know exactly what days and at what time the posts were made. Clearly, you are making the effort to delete those portion of the posts, after cutting and pasting, for a reason.

    I actually do not think anybody else cares about this though. I wish you a good night’s sleep and a peaceful day.

  43. lisab says:

    reason? yes … it is more fun this way.

    was that not clear?

  44. lisab says:

    roughing the truth

    during the thread, #42, half-truth corey wrote,

    “I was certainly off in the 2016 Presidential “prediction” thing as were many people.”

    in actuality, “many people” were NOT claiming trump would lose by 14 points and 37 states as per post #33

    first down

  45. lisab says:

    “I was certainly off in the 2016 Presidential “prediction” thing as were many people.”

    Now this wins the “Understatement of the Decade Award’!

    Corey’s personal feelings color 100% of everything he writes here, nothing is too stupid, too fake, too divorced from truth or reality for him.

    That Andrew Zimnern guy from Bizarre Foods has a slogan “If it looks good, eat it”.

    Corey’s is “if it fits my personal bias, write it”.

  47. jason says:

    I was certainly off in the 2016 Presidential “prediction” thing as were many people.”

    LOL, this is the half truth of the year.

    Was anyone actually “wronger” than Corey?

    I was wrong, I admit it, but comparing my prediction that Trump would win every Romney state plus Ohio and Florida and Iowa that if Hillary wasn’t more than 2 points ahead in the national polling she could very well lose can hardly be lumped in with Corey’s “colored” prediction.

    Corey was so “colored” he actually took a sucker bet 1000-1 that Hillary would win. The dogs at the York ASPCA still drool like crazy whenever you say the word “Corey”.

  48. Bitterlaw says:

    Phil- I though America was supposed to live under one party leftist control forever as a result of the New Deal. Did not happen. Then it was supposed to happen afterLBJ’s landslide in 1964. Didn’t happen. Nothing is forever in American politics.

    I hope you outlive me by decades. Walt will need somebody to talk to when the rest of us are gone.

  49. dblaikie says:

    Hello fellow posters, among all the news of the past for me, personally, the most amusing was weather related. For years I have been lectured that the Greenland ice cap was going to melt and destroy the world. The melting ice cap is the foundation of destructive climate change. The learned Scientists would drone on and on about how the melting ice cap would make the seas rise until all the cities and low lying islands would be at risk. How the melting would forever chance for the worst the balance of salinity in the water and thousands of species would be destroyed.

    But this week we have discovered by two unimpeachable studies that first the largest and most important ice field in Greenland has been growing by huge amounts for the last two years! And second the nearby glaciers in Iceland have confirmed this by suddenly growing rapidly — something that hasn’t happened in decades. Couple that with the frustrating fact climate change enthusiasts that the Antarctic Ice Cap (largest in the world is not shrinking) and you have a bunch of nervous scientists at NASA!

    Of course they run for cover and claim that this is just a blimp. However I bet deep down they are scared to death that this trend will continue. If true, this will make the egg on the faces of folks from the Mueller report look like nothing. If and when this news becomes main stream what will Ocasio say?!

    Robbie, CG and Messy are sad. Rasmussen(less) has the President’s job approval/ disapproval at 50%/ 49%, respectively.

  52. Cash Cow TM says:

    Former VA governor Terry McAwful is about ready to jump in the D primary race for POTUS.

  53. dblaikie says:

    This gets more fun the more I dig into it. It turns out that there is some proof that the glaciers in Glacier National Park are starting to grow again. They were supposed to be totally gone by 2030.

  54. Chicon says:

    Sheeple, wasn’t Trump around that number in the Rasmussen poll near election day 2018?

  55. dblaikie says:

    How I hope Terry will jump in. It is a GOP dream! The man is tainted in two powerful ways. First he is part of the Democratic Party in Virginia and all that means from the last two months. Second he is a creature of the Clintons. Believe once Barr and Lindsey Graham start looking around the Clinton Campaign and the effort to overthrow Trump by the Obama Justice Department it will drive Terry down and down again. Heck won’t be too good for Uncle Joe either.

  56. Tina says:

    Interesting article on Rudy Giuliani:

    The former mayor banked on the fact that not enough evidence existed to subpoena the president and, according to CNN reporting, that was exactly what happened: “The source said the sensitive discussions between Justice Department officials and the special counsel team, and the determination that a subpoena would not be pursued, were based on the perception of the evidence, and merits of the issues–separate and apart from the fact that current department policy dictates that a sitting president cannot be indicted.”

  57. Wes says:

    I doubt McAuliffe has much effect on the nomination. He lost the 2009 gubernatorial primary badly. He only narrowly won in 2013 when Jason’s hero—Ken Cuccinelli—was doing everything in his power to throw the election.

    McAuliffe is probably an early out as the liberal-White-guy-with-strong-fundraising-prowess niche already goes to Biden, Beto, and Sanders.

  58. Tina says:

    Remember, if F Mulehead and the 13 angry drats felt that the President “obstructed,” they could have subpoenaed him, or at least tried to,

  59. Tina says:

    No evidence of an underlying crime. I stated this numerous times here. A reason why the appointment of the sp was doomed in the first place.

    Set up by comedy under false and illegal pretenses based on the dossier that the jebots fell for,

    The president could not obstruct a counterintelligence investigation since he is the beneficiary or consumer of that info,

  60. Tina says:

    And Mulehead is no saint here.

    Look at what he did to General,Flynn.

    He also knew right away that the dossier was sheot and there was no colllusion. FISA was not extended further in 2017,

    In case you didn’t know…

    corree is a preening, self-important half-truth troll.

    I watched Trump on Hannity last night. Anyone else? I wonder why they didn’t just do the interview with a remote VIDEO hookup, instead of just a PHONE hookup, i.e., with a photo of Trump on the screen?

    Substantively, what Trump was awfully harsh. I don’t like throwing the word “treason” around, not by either side.

    Also, Trump’s mind skips around from topic to topic like a grasshopper– exhausting & hard to keep up.

  65. dblaikie says:

    I want Mueller to answer one question: When did he know there was no collusion or conspiracy between Trump and the Russians? Was it before the midterm election or after? If it was before he has some explaining to do!

  66. Bitterlaw says:

    Corey has been here almost since the beginning of HHR. He is not a troll. He supported GWB, McCain, and Romney in the Ptesidential elections. He did not support Trump. That does not make him a troll.

  67. Tina says:

    Well before midterm.

    FISA was not extended.

    So he knew.

  68. Tina says:

    But remember in Jebot land.

    Trump needs to forgive.

    Nobody from the coup plotters get punished. Seems like good cases exist with the commie, the penguin, sjw safe space, McFib, and comedy, for starters.

  69. Tgca says:


    I agree with Bitter. It does not make him a troll. It just makes him a useful idiot. …and I say that with love and kindness in my heart.
