Walker Both Leads Warnock By 2% and Trails Warnock By 5% in Two Separate Polls in GA

    We have two polls out of Georgia this morning that seem to contradict each other on the state of the race for the US Senate but seem to be in line on gubernatorial race. In a poll from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Herschel Walker holds a slight lead over Raphael Warnock while Brian Kemp is now up by high single digits over Stacey Abrams. Marist College shows a similar high single-digit lead for Kemp over Abrams but shows the opposite result in the US Senate race with Warnock up by 5%.

    Herschel Walker (R) 46%
    Raphael Warnock (D-inc) 44%

    US SENATE – GEORGIA (Marist)
    Raphael Warnock (D-inc) 47%
    Herschel Walker (R) 42%

    Brian Kemp (R-inc) 50%
    Stacey Abrams (D) 42%

    Brian Kemp (R-inc) 50%
    Stacey Abrams (D) 44%

    The AJC poll was done over a much longer period of time, September 5-16, among 861 likely voters. The Marist College poll was done September 12-15 and is among registered voters, which still using RVs this late in the election cycle seems a little odd and may be why the results are more favorable to the Democrats than the AJC poll.

    1. DW says:

      And the Atlanta Urinal-Constipation is about as left a hack-job pollster as you can get, so if they say Walker is ahead, Walker is ahead.

    2. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      Mr. Wissing–your dislike of conservative GOP candidates is well known, but why would you shade the Marist Poll findings in GA. Real Clear Politics shows Warnock +2 in the Senate race with Likely Voters. In fact, the Marist pollster says the following: “Warnock (47%) and Walker (45%) are closely matched among registered voters who say they definitely plan to vote.”
      Lastly, people here at the HHR should note that in 2020, Marist never polled Georgia. I question if it knows how since they show a 13 pt. spread between what Kemp would receive(net +11 over the Hamburger Queen) with LV’s and Walker’s -2. That is one BIG gap.

    3. Phil says:

      Marist, huh. Would this be the same Marist that had Biden up 51-47 in Florida with their last poll release in 2020. That Marist? I believe Trump won Florida by three and a half points. Enough with the college polls already. Look, all polls have misses at some time or other, but come on.

    4. Bitterlaw says:

      Dave posts polls we like and polls we don’t.

    5. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      #5- Bitterlaw
      I grant you that, but accuracy is an altogether different issue.

    6. Phil says:

      I for one have no problem with Dave posting every poll on every race. We can look at each poll posted and decide for ourselves whether they are valid based on their history and methodology.

    7. Phil says:

      BTW, Marist has no track record of ever polling Georgia that I can find. That in itself doesn’t make them wrong, but when they come up with this kind of result it makes you pretty suspicious.

    8. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      Today is pollpalooza day. Here are two more: baris in WI and Trafalgar in MN where AG Ellison trails by 1 1/2%.

      Baris has come out with a Wisc-Sen poll

      Johnson R 49.2%
      Barnes D 46.0%
      9/17-18 852 LV

      “President Joe Biden’s approval rating is underwater in Wisconsin. While 44.6% approve of the job he’s doing as president, to include 23.4% who strongly approve, 54.5% disapprove and that includes 47.9% who strongly disapprove.

      Of those who remain undecided in the race for U.S. Senate, 51.9% strongly disapprove and another 5.0% somewhat disapprove (of Biden). Only 2.2% strongly approve and 30.5% somewhat approve.”

      “Jason T. Schofield, the Republican Rensselaer County Board of Elections commissioner, stands accused after his Sept. 13 arrest: “The indictment accuses Schofield of using an online state Board of Elections portal to request absentee ballots on behalf of eight voters who had no interest in voting, did not request absentee ballots and didn’t know that Schofield was using their personal information to obtain the ballots.”

      “In Stamford, Connecticut, there was not just an arrest but a conviction. John Mallozzi, the city’s former Democratic Party chief, was found guilty of 28 felonies for forging absentee ballots in the 2015 municipal elections.

      “In August, it won an initial victory in a suit to force Michigan to clear dead people from its voting rolls. PILF’s research found that 25,975 names of dead people remained listed as “eligible voters,” meaning if someone shows up to vote in those names, they might get away with it. And yes, in a study of 42 states in recent elections, PILF found that 7,890 votes were actually cast in the names of dead people in 2016 and 6,718 in 2018.

      Nonetheless, Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, a Democrat, has fought against removing those names from the lists, even though PILF provided newspaper obituaries and even some photos of gravestones as proof.”

    10. Phil says:

      Yeah, sheeple. I posted the Wisconsin poll on the previous thread. The killer for Barnes is exactly what you just posted regarding the undecideds. Those Biden numbers among the undecided are brutal. Easy to see where those voters will break.

      I think Johnson wins by between 4-5.

      Barnes isn’t a good candidate BTW.

      Governors race.

    14. DW says:

      Probably more than half of the undecided in the WI gov race would lean toward replacing the incumbent.

    15. Phil says:

      Yeah, I’d like to see Biden’s approval/disapproval numbers among the undecideds in that race. He hasn’t posted that yet but if it’s anything like the numbers in the Senate race among undecided voters Evers is in deep doodoo.

    16. Tgca says:


      If Papa “Groper” Bush gets an A- then Carter should get at least a B+ due to grade inflation.

      I agree on Washington. He set the tone for the exec branch that seems to have been lost over the recent decades.

      I think there are only 4 presidents that rank as near great or great and deserve an A or A+. No other presidents come close to their accomplishments. In order of greatest, these 4 are:

      Teddy Roosevelt

    17. jan says:

      Phil, do you have a link to Baris’s polling site, as that’s where most of your numbers seem to come from. Thanks!

    18. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      Here is another Wisconsin Poll courtesy of Emerson College. R. Johnson(R) +4 for the Senate and Evers(D) +2 for Governor.

      FBI agents steal 11,000+ pieces of evidence–only 100 or so are “classified” papers.

      DOJ doesn’t want Trump or Special Master to view “classified” docs.

      But the burden of proof that docs aren’t classified…is Trump’s?

      Sounds legit.

      Also, if you want to really get the lowdown on Baris’ numbers and insights tune into his “Inside the Numbers” podcasts Monday, Wed and Friday at 11 AM CST. You can find it on Rumble. He ditched You Tube because he got tired of their ridiculous censorship. He should have his Nevada numbers on tomorrows podcast if he doesn’t release them on twitter today. Well worth a look.

    28. Tgca says:

      Don Lemon with that “deer in the headlights” look as he gets schooled on reparations by a white woman with some knowledge of REAL history.

      Now some may say “how dare a white woman challenge a black gay man on reparations” by using actual history relying on historical documents of very well kept books on the slave trade by slave traders instead of what reparation callers THINK really might have happened back then, albeit with no proof whatsoever.

    29. Bitterlaw says:

      Don Lemon is gay? I did not know that. Did lisab confirm it?

    30. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      Why would anyone be surprised by this shortage of pilots? Merit does not rule the day, diversity does.
      Also, the new UK Prime Minister, Liz Truss, announced her Cabinet. For the first time ever, there is not one Caucasian male in the British Cabinet. Truss got what she wanted, but I worry about the rest of England.

    31. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      I’m sorry, but this incident is a direct result of Biden’s dangerous and ugly rhetoric. There will be more! Do you agree?

    32. Phil says:

      Sorry sheeple, the anti-Democracy fascist MAGA moron deserved it. Nothing to see here.

    33. jan says:

      Thanks Phil. I’ll look into both sources you suggested.

    34. DW says:

      Here are mine for what its worth-Presidents during my lifetime:

      Reagan A-
      Trump B+
      Nixon C+
      Bush 41 C
      Ford C
      Bush 43 C-
      Clinton F
      Carter F
      Obama F
      Biden F

      I think Reagan’s biggest mistake was picking Bush 41 for veep. Clinton was terrible because he greatly contributed to the moral decline of the country, lying under oath, and lying with anyone he could of the opposite gender even though he had given an oath to his wife.

      Trump doesn’t get an A from me because of all the unforced errors that made his re-election needlessly hard, and because he failed to see the swamp for what it was and then failing to drain it like he promised.

      F grades effectively cover everything from 0 to 67% and so I list them again here with the percentage to distinguish between the four Fs:

      Clinton F 39%
      Carter F 28%
      Obama F 13%
      Biden F 0%

      No one needs LisaB’s expertise to confirm Don Lemon is a limp-wristed fudge packer (packee).

      The funny thing is he’s all over the white privilege thing but he’s a “potato queen” and likes the white guys, and his current squeeze the last few years is white and 20 years his junior.

      White privilege for thee but not for me.

    44. Wes says:

      Ever since Budd began matching Beasley in airtime, he’s had a small but consistent lead. She had the airwaves mostly to herself through August but could never truly break through. The trend has been 100% Budd since then. He wins comfortably and most likely gets the check within an hour of poll closing time.

    45. Phil says:

      Wes, Baris agrees with you. Has said for the last two months Budd will absolutely win. Said on Saturday night that he felt Budd would ultimately win by around 5 – which I presume is a pretty comfortable spread for a state like NC. Also, like you said the Republicans would win back the Supreme Court.

    46. Tina says:

      SCOOP: The Mitch McConnell-aligned Senate Leadership Fund is canceling $9.6M in television ads for the Arizona Senate race, confident that other outside conservative groups will make up much of the difference for GOP nominee Blake Masters.

    47. Phil says:

      Mitch wouldn’t do that, Tina. He is eager to have Masters in the Republican caucus.

    48. Wes says:

      About as eager as Donald Trump and Peter Thiel apparently, Phil.

    49. Bitterlaw says:

      Wes – Trump can do no wrong but McConnell is evil. Didn’t you get the memo?

    50. Gordon Allen says:

      Atlanta Fed 2nd qtr at .03%.
      It will be a/ historical if the GOP doesn’t win a decisive victory polls be darned.

    51. Phil says:

      Naw, he isn’t evil. He just doesn’t want Maga Republicans in his caucus. That’s rather clear.

    52. Tina says:

      He is sending $$$$ to help Frankensteins bff, the alaskan Sea porker

    53. Phil says:

      Doesn’t matter though. Bunch of weak Republican Senate candidates. Mitch said so. Glad he finally found something to comment on. He sure as hell hasn’t had the time to comment on anything else – you know, like Biden’s “unity” speech, the out of control Biden Justice Dept, the raid on an ex President’s home, a goon squad FBI confiscating phones including from sitting congressmen – not a peep……but he made damn sure to let everyone know that the Republican candidates were weak.

      Republicans are indeed fortunate to have such a “leader”.

    54. Wes says:

      I’m willing to bet J. D. Vance, Dr. Oz, and Herschel Walker would disagree with you, Phil, since McConnell is raising money for all three.

      I look at the possibility that Masters is just not a good candidate who unnecessarily burned bridges and put himself in a weak position.

      Whom am I kidding? Masters is a great candidate. He’s in trouble only because Ernst Stavro Blofeld–I mean, Mitch McConnell–hates Trump-endorsed candidates and has no interest in their service in the Senate. He’s helping other MAGA candidates just as a head fake to hide his evil.

    55. Phil says:

      …and he can’t muster one word in response Biden’s outrageous speech demonizing half the country? Splain it to me, Lucy.

    56. Wes says:

      Tina, Lisa Murkowski is an incumbent Senator with three statewide victories under her belt. Kelly Tshibaka has no electoral track record and promised to vote against McConnell for Majority Leader.

      Maybe if Tshibaka hadn’t decided to antagonize McConnell, he wouldn’t be actively opposing her. I mean, Oz, Vance, and Walker never felt the need to try to turn Mitch into a punching bag and received support from him. Maybe, just maybe, preemptively opposing the leader of one’s political party in the very chamber a candidate is running for isn’t exactly the smartest strategy for a first-time candidate.

      I’m just saying.

    57. Wes says:

      I never said that wasn’t a legitimate criticism, Phil. What I did say is that accusing him of reflexively opposing candidates Trump supports when that’s demonstrably not true is not a valid line of attack.

    58. Wes says:

      Of course the way to stick it to Mitch would be to go to the mat to get candidates like Masters elected without Mitch’s help. Donald Trump could help here by actually dumping some of the $115 million from his SuperPAC into Arizona, but Trump has refused to do that despite endorsing Masters in the primary.

      Why am I seeing no criticism on here of Trump for sucking up money and refusing to back his chosen candidates in critical races? That’s literally the purpose of a SuperPAC.

      All I hear on that front is crickets.

    59. Phil says:

      Sure, Trump should spare 3 or 4 million, no doubt, absolutely….but that doesn’t excuse McConnell. It’s his Senate. McConnell hates Trump. We get it. We knew that when he took to the floor and publicly blamed Trump for January 6th. He couldn’t help himself. McConnell is a lot closer to the Bush, Kasich, Rove wing of the Republican Party than the majority of base Republicans. It’s why MCConnell’s numbers with Republicans are in the toilet. Hell, he’s closer to the Lincoln Project than base Republicans voters in the present Republican Party. No, he’s not quite there but he’s approaching it with his convenient silence on the above mentioned issues I cited earlier. What’s sad is that although Mitch won’t be around much longer, his designated successor John “Crickets” Thune is waiting in the wings. In other words, nothing will change.

    60. Tina says:

      He will probably “give” the debate questions to Tim Ryan too.

    61. Tina says:

      Rich Baris “The People’s Pundit”
      Lean R #FL #NC #OH #WI in the Fox News Power Rankings is just ridiculous.

      GA is Lean R. At least 3/4 of those are much closer to Likely R at this point.

    62. Phil says:

      Speaking of our old friend, John Kasich, I see he popped off and called sending 50 migrants to Martha’s “just plain wrong”. Something about not treating migrants like “human beings”

      Yeah, John. How dare we send those human beings to that sh*thole hell at Martha’s Vineyard. Oh the horror! Why, it just like cramming them into boxcars and sending them to Auschwitz.

    63. Tina says:

      We need to keep the illegals locked up in a truck. That is humans.

      KARATE CHOP AKA I don’t have proper manners to eat

    64. Wes says:

      Yet McConnell is helping Trump-endorsed candidates who didn’t go out of their way to antagonize him, Phil. Maybe McConnell’s priorities for candidates have less to do with Trump and more to do with the way those candidates handle themselves during the primaries.

      Masters went out of his way to snub McConnell. McConnell returned the favor. Vance, Oz, and Walker didn’t. McConnell hasn’t abandoned them.

      It couldn’t be more clear to me. If you want to be a Senator, don’t antagonize your party’s Senate Floor Leader. Masters is learning that the hard way. His benefactors–Trump and Thiel–abandoned him after the primary, and he’d alienated his party’s most powerful Senate fundraiser.

      Too bad for him. It’s not McConnell’s fault Masters is a rookie candidate who hurt himself by alienating people he couldn’t afford to alienate.

    65. Phil says:

      No. It’s too bad for the Republican Party and most importantly, for the country. Kelly is a leftist loon. You’d think McConnell might want to take that into consideration.

    66. Wes says:

      Maybe Masters should have taken that into consideration during the primary, Phil.

      Maybe Trump should also be taking that into consideration now. Trump has literally no motivation to refuse to back Masters except the fact that he doesn’t want to.

      Maybe McConnell should be backing Masters, but Masters gave him a reason not to.

      Masters shouldn’t have bitten the hand that could feed him–especially since it was clear long before the primary Trump had no intention of financially backing the electoral prospects of his endorsed candidates while McConnell would be the primary fundraiser for Senate Republicans.

      Walker, Oz, and Vance were smart enough not to make enemies unnecessarily. Why wasn’t Masters?

    67. phoenixrisen says:

      Have to like the way the Senate races are trending as this is when voters pay more attention and evaluate. PA, AZ, and GA are the most encouraging. Looks like +2 GOP is the realistic best case scenario for the GOP. Out of the blue upset could be Murray in WA. NC and FL do not concern.

    68. Tina says:

      It’s not too late for Mitchie to speak out on pedohitlers speech.

      Jack Posobiec ??

      Biden desecrated our nation’s birthplace with a demonic speech on sacred ground at Independence Hall and 2 weeks later a left-wing adult just straight-up murdered a teenager for being Republican

    69. Bio mom says:

      Just watched the worst of the medical shows (I admit I like them), The Resident on Fox. Ridiculous is politics about the “awful governor candidate”. This is in Atlanta. But he is the incumbent. Not some newbie they are against although that is the suggestion. Terrible, ridiculous show! Leave politics out of your shows, please!

    70. Bitterlaw says:

      First question-

      So, after illegally entering the United States and evading law enforcement, you decided to accept a flight from somebody outside a McDonald’s?

    71. Phil says:

      Obviously, I’m no lawyer, bitter, but even I can see why you’d love to take that case. What a stupid lawsuit.

    72. BayernFan says:

      Reviewing the generic polls on RCP….

      Why are so many still doing RV, and not LV, polls?

      The election is 7 weeks away.

    73. Tgca says:

      Stop defending Mitchie because he was insulted. His job as leader of the GOP is to put the best interests of the party 1st, not his own personal interests. If he can’t do that, he should resign as the GOP senate leader. He has been a poor GOP leader and has gotten outsmarted by Schumer and the Dems more than once.

      Mitchie is behaving like Liz Cheney, who by the way, he not only defended her J6 committee but gave money to in her bid for re-election in 2022.

      Why would the GOP senate leader support someone who openly advocates for the GOP to lose to the Dems in the upcoming election?

      It’s like a Jew supporting Hitler back in the 1930s Germany. You don’t support those that openly want to destroy you.

    74. Phil says:


      Because they are more favorable to Democrats. They want to keep the Democratic spin going as long as they can. As Baris said the other night, the MSM polls will have to convert to likely voter samples very soon. They have already put it off later than any other cycle. It’s deliberate, however.

    75. Bitterlaw says:

      Shouldn’t Trump also put the interests of the party first by putting a crowbar in his wallet and support all the Senate candidates he endorsed?

    76. Bitterlaw says:

      Actually, if Trump should support all GOP candidates. Even if he hates them.

    77. NYCmike says:

      Yes & Yes.

      Not sure why anyone defends McConnell for not supporting Master$. I won’t defend Trump and/or Thiel if they keep their $$ out of that race.

      All of them should support Masters to get rid of the Astronaut.

      Don’t defend any of them, call all of them out.

    78. Tgca says:


      Trump is a private citizen. Trump is not responsible for getting GOP senators elected.

      McConnell is an official in a GOP leadership role. McConnell is responsible for getting GOP senators elected.

      If McConnell is not up to the job, he should resign as the GOP leader.

      Again, McConnell is a Liz Cheney supporter and defender. He personally funded her re-election campaign even though she has vowed to support Dems to keep the House so Trump supporters can’t be elected. In essence, McConnell is supporting the Dems keep the House by supporting Cheney.

      What about this betrayal do you not understand?

    79. NYCmike says:


      Trump raised a lot of $$ while campaigning for those running this cycle. It makes sense that he should use that $$ to help those candidates, especially the ones he endorsed.

      Also, it would make sense for him to share the wealth now, and call on those same people in the coming year or more.

    80. jan says:

      I thought the RNC’s fundraising efforts were to help candidates get elected. McConnell, being the senate minority leader, first priority should be to have the republicans become the Senate majority again, putting aside any personal animus he may have against a rookie candidate, like Masters, because Masters might not support McConnell being the leader again. It’s just more incumbent on McConnell, than a former ex president, who is currently a private citizen, to properly distribute available funding to those candidates who have a chance of winning.

    81. Tgca says:


      I don’t disagree with that but there’s a difference between an elected official with a leadership role and a private citizen. Trump is no longer an elected politician while McConnell is.

      Just like you don’t elect a district attorney so they can can ignore doing what they were elected to do because of their personal beliefs. You put that aside to do your elected role.

      I still can’t get past why McConnell supported Liz Cheney and personally funded her campaign just months ago knowing she is trying to keep the GOP from winning the House.

      How are these behaviors in the best interest of the GOP?

    82. Wes says:

      Jan, the NRSC is contributing money to Masters. McConnell doesn’t run the NRSC. Rick Scott does that.

      McConnell has a PAC called Senate Leadership Fund intended to boost GOP Senate candidates. That’s the group that canceled as buys for Masters.

      If Trump hadn’t spent the last year actively working to get his own candidates nominated for various offices then I’d agree with you about him. Instead, Trump backed candidates such as Masters earnestly in the primaries and helped shepherd them to their respective nominations. Since he chose to have such an outsized role in the nomination process, it’s incumbent on him as the would-be leader of the GOP to spend some of his mountain of PAC money on his candidates.

      No amount of sycophantic sophistry trying to absolve Trump of the responsibility for the role he wants to play in the GOP as the ultimate power broker in the party. That means he needs to put his PAC money where his mouth is and actively work to get the candidates he aggressively pushed in the primaries elected rather than forgetting they exist once they assuage his ego by winning nominations that are useless without general election victories.

    83. Tgca says:

      So if Trump had no PAC and funds reserve even though his endorsed candidates won primaries then whose responsibility would it be to fund the GOP candidates for the Senate?

      Would McConnell then say “not my endorsed candidates so I don’t have to support and fund them?”

      That’s his job regardless of the candidates. He is responsible for ensuring the GOP leadership works to get GOP candidates elected and not to hold personal grudges because he has a thin skin.

      It’s his job before anyone else’s job.

      If he can’t do that, he should resign his leadership role because otherwise, he is useless.

      This poll was done prior to Ukraine’s successful offensive, when Tucker Carlson was still blathering his pro-Putin propaganda:

      “With the Russia-Ukraine war now passed the 200-day mark with no end in sight, the American public remains strongly behind the US policy of providing significant military and logistical support to the Ukrainians. In a Gallup Poll conducted just before the recent successful Ukrainian counteroffensive, 2-out-of-3 Americans support “Ukraine reclaiming lost territory from Russia, even if it means a prolonged war,” while less than 1-out-of-3 Americans favor ending “the conflict quickly, even if it allows Russia to keep its territory.”

    85. Wes says:

      We can discuss a fantasy world where Trump has no SuperPAC–which exists to spend money on candidates–or the real world where Trump has one, Tg.

      3- In the CNN Exit Poll in 2020, the split between No College and College was a respective 65/35. In today’s Marist Poll, it is 55/45. The sample leans toward the educated which vote mostly Democratic.

      THAT Suffolk poll in Florida means Rubio is really ahead by 7 or so,and DeSantis by 10.

      Do voters in the U.S. realize that by electing Biden in 2020 it directly brought:

      1. bungled exit from Afghanistan and loss of BILLIONS of dollars of U.S. military equipment and American and Ghanny lives?

      2. open borders with 2,000,000 illegals coming every year?

      3. open borders with flood of illegal DRUG.S that is killing mor Americans age 18-45 than any other cause?

      4. end of U.S. energy independence and $5+ diesel?

      5. run-a-way inflation?

      6. Putin invasion of Ukraine and the BILLIONS OF COST OF U.S. DOLLARS as well as the BILLIONS OF COST OF DESTRUCTION as well as the TENS OF THOUSANDS OF LIVES (and the increase of global warming due to smoke from the war)?

      and Biden has done NOTHING to unite the country or dial down the evil and hateful rhetoric, but instead has done the opposite?

      AND that by electing to send Ds to congress, they are giving a thumbs up to BIDEN and his insane policies?

      IF VOTERS REALIZE THIS, then in November the new House of Representatives should be 345 Rs and 100 whack-a-doodle Ds like AOC and the squad-ers.
      (the 100 whack-jobs is due to how House districts are drawn ensuring the reelection of the AOCs of the world)

      And the U.S. Senate should have 67 Rs and 33 other idiots like Bernie Sander and Chuck Shumer.

      But the SAD reality after the November election will be much different as the Rs gain a NARROW majority in the House and the Ds retain control of Senate and voters will blow yet another chance to “send a message to Biden and the other D lunatics.

      Dershowitz to Newsmax: Trump’s Team Should Push to Remove AG James

      Agreed! Trump and team should call for her recusal since she ran a political campaign on going after him and that creates great bias in her investigations.

      I disagree with Dershowitz when he calls James a nice person though. Nice people DO NOT purposely try to fabricate and grossly mislead on facts to indict people.

      Trying to ruin a family or get people imprisoned because you don’t like their politics is NOT nice. It’s EVIL!

      “Border Town Puts Up ‘Martha’s Vineyard’ Sign In Hopes Government Will Come Pick Up All Their Illegal Immigrants

      DEL RIO, TX — Impressed by the efficiency of Martha’s Vineyard in expelling their migrants in less than 48 hours, several border towns in Texas have begun adopting best practices from the affluent Massachusetts island. One prominent change that Del Rio has already made is replacing their “Welcome To Del Rio” sign with a “Welcome To Martha’s Vineyard” sign so that migrants will know that there are not enough resources, they are not wanted, and they need to leave immediately.”

    168. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      “Protesters took to the streets across the country to voice their opposition to the move. By Wednesday night, 1,311 people in 38 cities had been detained under Russia’s anti-protest laws, according to the independent OVD-Info protest monitoring group.

      It said those figures included at least 502 in Moscow and 524 in St Petersburg, Russia’s second most populous city.

      Throughout Putin’s tenure, the Kremlin has fostered a reputation for testing the limits of an arrangement in which Russian citizens largely agree to stay out of politics if the state stays out of their lives. But it has always demonstrated a sense of restraint, a hesitation to take things too far and risk sparking a broad-scale backlash.

      With his military in retreat and Ukraine advancing, analysts said Putin appears to have made the largest political gamble of his career.”

    169. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      174. Meanwhile, Ukraine’s recent offensive has major U.S. paw prints:

      “But what came as a surprise to many observers, and apparently to the Russians as well, was actually the result of meticulous planning, as reported by the New York Times. The strategy behind the offensive that has thus far been so successful was developed over a period of several months by Ukrainian and American military planners – and culminated in a strategic bluff.”

    170. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      175. A positive impact of U.S./NATO resolve to help the Ukraine has been a greater European role in countering China:

      “Germany is a key benchmark. Berlin was once a stalwart supporter of close trade ties with China, and thus it tended to avoid tension with Beijing. But Berlin now seems to have turned a major corner on issues from trade to human rights to direct military engagement in the Indo-Pacific.

      Last week, Germany’s Economy Minister Robert Habeck pledged “no more naivety” in Germany’s trade with China. Habeck announced his team was working on a new economic policy to reduce dependence on China across key industries and closely scrutinize inbound investment from China, saying, “We cannot allow ourselves to be blackmailed.”

      The German Foreign Ministry also announced it was appointing a special representative to Pacific nations, where China’s expanding influence has alarmed Australia and the United States.

      In late August, Germany joined Exercise Pitch Black as a full participant for the first time. The set of military drills is held every other year off Australia’s northern coast with air forces from as many as 17 countries, including the U.S., the U.K., France, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand. The exercise’s recent expansion has prompted questions about its potential role as a counter to China in the region.

      The Chinese Communist Party-affiliated tabloid Global Times reported that some German media warned the country against joining an “anti-China alliance” in the Indo-Pacific.”

    171. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      “China on Wednesday called for a cease-fire in Ukraine as Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a partial military mobilization seen as an escalation in the war that began in February.

      Beijing “calls for a cease-fire through negotiations and solutions that answer all parties’ security concerns,” said Wang Wenbin, spokesperson of China’s Foreign Ministry, according to the state-run Global Times newspaper.

      “Every country’s reasonable security concerns should be valued, and all efforts conducive to resolving the crisis peacefully should be supported. China calls for dialogue and consultation to resolve the divergences,” Wang added”

Russians do not appear to anxious to fight in a war that so far has been disastrous for Russian forces. Putin’s days in power may be numbered. Russian bloggers are fiercely attacking him, demonstrations are taking place. He does not appear to have good relations with his military leaders.

      Fetterman is an absolute joke. Forget his looney positions – empty the prisons, support for partial birth abortion etc etc etc. Put aside the fact that he physically and mentally isn’t functional.

News to the roads, bridges, dams, power plants, etc. in Ukraine that have been destroyed.

      News to NATO and Sweden and Finland and all the other countries building up their military to counter the Russian threat. News to all the countries in Europe and the US funneling billions of dollars in aid to Ukraine.

That sounds bleak for the GOP until you realize that in 2020, the Dems won the House vote by 20 points and by 28 points in 2018. And their July poll found the GOP down by 19 points.

      – Between this and the polling out showing Sarah Palin is likely going to cost the party the Alaska house seat, it’s more evidence that MAGA daddy candidates in competitive districts are a bad combination, even in a year that’s very favorable for Republicans.

      Here are the top SIX most important issues in Nevada by party. You can click on the crosstabs via the link in the chart. But look at “Abortion”. Independents simply don’t care about it. Nearly 6 in 10 are voting on inflation and other economic issues.

    207. Phil says:

      Those above polls are excellent.

      As far as Baris’ polling results, he just finished polling Nevada and has Laxalt up 2.2%

      As far as abortion, his polling has been the same state after state. The issue just doesn’t resonate with independents or Republican women. That sucks for Democrats.

      Republicans triage the Deadener running against Marcy Kaptur (D-OH). She’s in a GOP-friendly seat and has a reflexively liberal voting record, yet Republicans have decided a guy with reams of ethical baggage can’t beat her.

      Zzzzzz…. Phil doesn’t believe that for a second.

      But heck, when you have your head up Putin’s ass it maybe you can get confused.

      Let me remind him what REALLY happened.

      “Breaking news from the isolationist bunker in TX to the tens of thousands of innocent Ukrainians killed, tortured and exiled. News to the 10 million Ukrainians displaced from their homes. News to the Ukrainian economy that has been decimated. News to the hundreds of Ukrainian town and cities shelled and bombed.

      The Ukrainians are bravely resisting the Russians with the help of the aid Phil wants to deny them. But the carnage and the war and the suffering is happening IN THE UKRAINE, not Russia.

    213. Wes says:

    222. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      226. A major reason the Ukrainians are doing so well is because of the military equipment & aid provided by the U.S. and NATO. It is all but admitted now that the U.S. military planned the strategy for the recent successful Ukrainian offense in northeast Ukraine. It’s why Putin’s appeasers took the lead in trying to get U.S. military aid to Ukraine ended.

      Which is why the Biden Justice Dept will move heaven and earth to put him in prison. Indict on some BS charge (it won’t matter what it is) and get him in front of a DC jury. Guaranteed conviction. It’s called criminalizing your opposition and it’s a characteristic of every banana Republic on the planet. Didn’t think it would happen here, but hey, when you have the ruling party as determined as Democrats to not relinquish power, and the leaders of the opposition party willing to go along with it (yeah, I’m looking at you, Mitch and the DC Republicans like you) then, hey, they’ll pull it off. Of course, America will never be the same once that line is crossed but apparently that isn’t important. Who knew?

    228. Phil says:

      They are all showing 2-4 point leads for Laxalt. He’s leading with the Hispanic vote which is 18% of Nevada. That demographic is a major flip.

      Former basketball player Bill Walton is taking on San Diego’s worthless Democratic mayor regarding the homeless crisis — which is now about as bad as that in San Francisco.

      “Bill Walton is challenging San Diego city hall to get a grip on its homeless crisis.

      Walton, a progressive Grateful Dead enthusiast who is hardly a Rush Limbaugh acolyte, has called out San Diego mayor Todd Gloria in multiple forums.

      The website Voice of San Diego documented several letters that Walton wrote to Mayor Gloria on the issue, including one where the NBA and broadcasting legend said he was assaulted.

      “Once again, while peacefully riding my bike early this Sunday morning in Balboa Park, I was threatened, chased, and assaulted by the homeless population, in our Park,” Walton wrote Aug. 28. “Once again, you’ve done, and continue to do, nothing.””

      I live near Balboa Park: at night it sounds like a scene out of the movie “The Howling”. The police do absolutely nothing; at night you see the lighting up of crack cocaine in homeless camps through out Balboa Park and Downtown San Diego. The drug dealers do their sales in the camps in the morning with no fear of arrest.

      Just listened to an encouraging review of the midterms with Richard Baris and Alex DeGrasse. The later guy works with Elise Stefanik’s group who is actively targeting 74 House R candidates. Supposedly they feel confident in their progress to push these candidates over the finish line, saying that 80% of their funding is being spent offensively, while the Dems are spending 80% of their money defensively. Laxalt and Ron Johnson were both deemed as doing well in this post Labor Day stretch of the election, with the undecideds markedly showing disapproval of Biden- meaning they will probably vote R.

    232. Phil says:

      Johnson and Laxalt are in excellent shape, Jan. Baris is polling Georgia or Arizona next. Says he is leaning Georgia and would prefer to do Arizona later in the process. I’d like to see some fresh polling in Pennsylvania to see if Oz has continued to solidify his base.

      However this claim by Gateway Pundit is completely bananas:

      “The sale would have allowed China to take control of our natural gas industry through the deal.”

      Here is the size of the natural industry in the U. S. as of 2009, it has grown substantially since then. Major corporations are involved with hundreds of billions of dollars in assets.

      “More than 14,000 oil-and-gas companies, many of them small businesses, were active in the United States in 2009, according to the Energy Information Administration. But multinational giants like Exxon Mobil and BP now produce much of the nation’s gas. The 10 biggest drillers account for one-third of all production, data from the Natural Gas Supply Association and the EIA show. The 40 largest producers pump more than half of all domestic natural gas.”

      2- This poll has abortion as the top issue by 20% of the voters, just 2% behind the economy as #1 and 8% above inflation #3.
      3- In the demographic of gender besides the usual Male and Female, there are three(3) other choices. To wit: Male and Female Transgender and Other. WOKEISM!!!
      4- The poll has separate categories for Hispanic and Latino. Can someone kindly explain to me the difference or is it MORE WOKEISM?

      Does Cocaine Mitch want the GOP to lose this year? He keeps trying to demoralize the GOP base. To wit:

      ““Mitch McConnell opposed conviction in Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial. He may yet help clean up the mess of Jan. 6,” Politico reports.

      “Things are playing out differently in the Senate GOP after only nine House Republicans — all of them retiring from Congress — supported updating a 19th-century law that Trump’s allies sought to manipulate to keep him in power. Even as House GOP leaders whipped against the post-Jan. 6 legislation this week, McConnell has encouraged his members to seek a deal with Democrats and is himself leaning toward backing the effort.

      A new Utah Poll by Dan Jones & Ass. shows a tight Senate race in Utah. Republican Mike Lee is up by 2-5 pts. Does anyone buy this?
      The article with the poll states that most of the undecided voters are Moderate Independents so Egg McMuffin has a good chance of winning.
      Did you know that all GOP Senators have endorsed Lee except for one— Mitt Romney!

    241. Bitterlaw says:

      Sheeple – Thank you. While I do not think that abortion is as much of an issue as the poll states, all of Shapiro’s ads now state that Mastriano will ban all abortions and gay marriage. They also say that his positions will cause employers to leave PA. Mastriano’s ads say….nothing. There are no tv ads in my area.

    242. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      #251- Add:
      Here is the pollster, Dan Jones & Ass., in the 2016 Presidential race:

      OCT. 20-27 Dan Jones & Associates

      823 LV

      24%- McMuffin
      30%- Clinton
      Trump +2

    243. Wes says:

      Well, I guess I can quit criticizing Donald Trump for sucking up huge sums of money into his SuperPAC and then not spending it. It took him long enough, but he’s finally doing it:

    244. Phil says:

      Beto running abortion ads Here in Texas. My favorite where he has some fake “life long Republican” state abortion has pushed him over to Beto or some crap.

      Beto will lose by around 7 or 8. Thing is, he keeps showing up every cycle. He never goes away. Perpetual candidate. Every election cycle he has to be on the ballot.

      Born to run as he likes to say. Just not born to win. No doubt will be running in the Senate race in 2024.

      So annoying.

    245. Greymarch says:

      Presidents graded during my life-time:

      -Nixon: F (if you need a presidential pardon to avoid prison, you were a bad president.)
      -Ford: C
      -Carter: D
      Reagan: A
      Bush Sr: C
      Clinton: B-
      GWB: B+
      Obama: D
      Trump: D
      Biden: D-

      I am a neo-conservative (think Reagan + Jack Kemp + Marco Rubio), but no longer a member of the republican party. Refuse to be in a party that wants the giant-jerk Trump to be prez. I also call it as I see it.


    246. William says:

      255 I live in Texas as well Abbott will win by double digits. He will crush it with independents and perform quite well with Hispanics

    247. Wes says:

      Ironically, Greymarch, I too left the GOP because of one of its Presidents. GWB was the one who drove me from the party.

    248. Bitterlaw says:

      Wes left the GOP over a candidate he voted for President twice.

    249. Greymarch says:

      Trafalgar is a right-wing group, purposely paid by GOP candidates and GOP PAC groups to push positive GOP polls. If you believe Trafalgar polls, you are a sucker.


    250. DW says:


      Sometimes it takes a jerk. For too long conservatives watched as presidents like the Bushes, and candidates like McCain, Romney, and others spent all their time reaching across the aisle and accomplishing the left’s agenda, albeit at a slower pace.

      They finally got someone who will spit across the aisle, and you wonder why they like him?

    251. DW says:

      The problem with throwing rocks at Trafalgar is the fact that they have a track record of accuracy.

    252. Greymarch says:

      My prediction: Nevada will decide which party owns the senate. If the GOP NV candidate takes Nevada, I believe on election night, that will get the GOP to a grand-total of 51 senators.

      Election night, keep your eyes on NV. Of the bell-weather senate races, NV is the one with the loudest bell.

    253. Wes says:

      It’s a hard thing to realize one voted for unmitigated failure and stupidity, Bitter. I couldn’t lie to myself though and continue to be in a political party with a man whose very existence I absolutely loathe.

      Hey, at least I didn’t vote for him twice after declaring I have zero tolerance for DUI though. That would be someone else on here.

    254. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      253. Dan Jones polls in Utah can be way off at times. They tend to under poll LDS voters outside of Salt Lake County. Often Dan Jones polls attempt to claim Utah voters are a lot more liberal on issues than they actually are — there often is a certain amount of advocacy in their polling.

      Lighthouse polling is much better, and it shows Lee with a strong lead.

      As you pointed out, here is how off Dan Jones was in the 2016 presidential race.

      Trump (R)
      Trump (R)

    255. Bitterlaw says:

      Zzzzzzzzz. I said I would never hire somebody with a DUI because if they either injured themselves on my business premises I would be responsible for paying their workers compensation benefits. If they injured or killed somebody else while on company time, I would be sued.

      I can never be responsible for workers compensation benefits or be sued over what politicians do while driving. But thank you for reminding everybody you have complete tolerance for DUI. Ironic since you were injured by a drunk driver.

    256. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      John Kerry admits Biden is a liar:

      “U.S. special presidential climate envoy John Kerry praised the Inflation Reduction Act, calling it an “amazing” bill due to its climate-related impact while acknowledging that it does not seem to do much for inflation…

      “And I’m not sure how much it has to do with inflation, but that’s OK,” he acknowledged.”

    257. Phil says:

      Greymarch, try doing some research on polling organizations and their track records and then get back to us on Trafalgar.

      222. Let me fix your post you Jadon.

      “Breaking news from the China sycophant in York County, PA to the tens of thousands of innocent Chinese and Uyghurs enslaved killed, tortured and exiled annually. Nothing to see here.

      News to the 1 million+ Uyghurs displaced from their homes and soon tens of millions to be displaced in Asia by China aggressive assault in that part of the world. Nothing to see here.

      News to companies around the world that lose billions annually to Chinese theft and pass those costs along to consumers and the decimation of Hong Kong as a free society soon to be followed by Taiwan. Nothing to see here.

      News to the hundreds of towns and villages in Asia with hundreds of millions being forced to the will of Chinese dominance or be militarily overrun. Nothing to see here.

      News to the US that is focusing its military on wokeness while the Chinese modernize and upgrade their military and expand their nuclear arsenal. Nothing to see here.

      News to the US regarding its buildings, lands, and companies being bought up by the Chinese and influenced with a communist agenda, including land purchased by the Chinese around military bases in the US. Nothing to see here.

      News to the US and Western countries that sit by and do NOTHING to counter the Chinese threat. Nothing to see here.

      News to all the countries in Europe and the US funneling billions of dollars into the CCP. Nothing to see here.

      News to the US that let China perpetuate a pandemic on it and destroy its economy and then have to buy pandemic supplies from China. Nothing to see here.

      News to the US that let a Chinese manufactured pandemic result in the US federal gubbermint vastly increasing its power and targeting Americans to weaken American democracy. Nothing to see here.

      The US and European countries are cowards and not resisting the Chinese with the help of the Jadon who wants to see China prosper at the expense of the West as long as his investments benefit.

      Hey, but let’s do more favorable trade FOR China. Democracy be damned as long as my investments benefit.

    259. Tgca says:


      Anyone that gives a war-mongering president responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths including 4,000+ American soldiers a B+ cannot be taken seriously.

      The fact that Trump is better appreciated by the GOP than GWB tells you what tens of millions of voters think.

    260. Tgca says:

      What’s worse? A drunk driver or a man that purposely goes to war knowing thousands will be killed just so he can impress his daddy and try to reward his friends with favorable profitable war contracts?

      We now know that Bush and Cheney purposely misled the nation and lied about the Iraq war. His own SOS dropped the goods on him hoping to redeem himself a few years back.

    261. Phil says:

      What’s worse? I don’t know. They are both pretty bad. Both reasons why I have no use for W.
