Laxalt Leads in Three Polls in NV

    We have not one, not two, but three polls out of Nevada this week that shows Republicans might be in a good position to pick up the US Senate seat in Nevada. They come from Insider Advantage, Trafalgar Group, and Data for Progress.

    US SENATE – NEVADA (Data For Progress)
    Adam Laxalt (R) 47%
    Catherine Cortez Masto (D-inc) 46%

    US SENATE – NEVADA (Trafalgar Group)
    Adam Laxalt (R) 47%
    Catherine Cortez Masto (D-inc) 43%

    US SENATE – NEVADA (Insider Advantage)
    Adam Laxalt (R) 46%
    Catherine Cortez Masto (D-inc) 43%

    The DFP poll was done September 14-19, the Trafalgar poll was done September 17-20 and the IA poll as done September 20, all among likely voters.

      Hopefully Laxalt win results in Sisolak being retired as well He’s been an awful governor for solidifying the infrastructure for fraud in Nevada.

    3. DW says:

      Hopefully Lucy doesn’t pull the football away this time in NV. But historically, ANY senate incumbent sitting at around 43% in head-to-head polling is very likely toast.

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

      I am happy that Tgca has investments in China.

      Alas, I don’t have any.

      Any suggestions? Ok to suggest something from the 99.99% of investments in China that have nothing to do with Uyghurs.

    8. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      Matt Gaetz(R-FL) has been cleared by the Feds. Based on everything that has happened in two years, I feel that the investigation of him by the DOJ was to keep him mostly quiet and defang him as an adversary. For the most part, it worked!

      According to the DOJ, there isn’t enough credible evidence to indict Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) for anything related to their sex-trafficking investigation because of the lack of credible witnesses.

    9. Tgca says:

      Nueve Bebe! Nueve!

    10. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      It appears that Nate Silver/538 is on the defensive. Here is his explanation about why the Democrats are on the move. IMHO, it is a pile of hot dung. As an example, he believes the Student Loan Cancellation legislation is a big winner for the Democrats.
      His defensive posture has not changed his brazenness. Even today with really no news except some Democrat internals, 538 has moved the GOP’s chances of gaining the House from 72 to 68 percent while going the opposite way with the Senate from the Democrats having a 70 to a 72 percent chance of keeping.
      He still has the Democrat Governatorial and Senate candidates in Nevada ahead by about 60/40 margins.

      His prognostications are in great conflict with the Betting Markets and the gap is widening by the day.

      Boy, would I like to see him eat crow on Election Day.

    11. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      Here is Trafalgar’s newest Wisconsin Poll. R. Johnson goes from -2 a few weeks ago to +2 and the GOP Governatorial candidate takes a less than 1 pt. lead.

    12. DW says:

      fourth poll in a row showing Johnson ahead in Wisconsin.

    13. Wes says:

      I think Johnson will win by about the same margin as in 2010. Barnes already showed the weakness of his campaign by pulling out the race card.

      Saying Johnson is racist for attacking Barnes’ stated positions shows Barnes has fallen behind and is desperately flailing to get back on track.

    14. DW says:

      And in a state like Wisconsin Wes, there is only so much to be gained by Dems putting all their money on abortion rights. They were already going to get max turnout from all the whackos in Madison, so what they need is some issue to appeal to the working class that left them for Trump in 2016.

    15. DW says:

      So its been FOREVER it seems since anywhere in the USA we have been hit by a major hurricane. And now that one is aiming at Florida next week, we will have to hear all the climate change garbage from the morons on the left and how urgent action is needed, even though storms like this have hit our coasts on occasion long before the burning of fossil fuels.

    16. Wes says:

      Wisconsin is a generally socially liberal state, DW, but it’s not so extreme as New York or California. Democrats have nothing new to say after bellyaching about abortion all summer. Meanwhile, the economy is clearly souring. Economics trumps ersatz debates about abortions when people see their 401(k)s and 403(b)s start losing value while they’re increasingly priced out of the housing market.

      The Supreme Court may have inadvertently done the GOP a favor by issuing the Dobbs decision over the summer so Democrats could predictably overreact and wear out the emotional receptors of people they wanted to him up against Republicans. Meanwhile the GOP now has salient rather than ersatz issues to hammer the Dems with going into the home stretch.

    17. NYCmike says:

      The Supreme Court, thankfully with a majority of justices picked by Republican Presidents, did what it should have done – make a decision based on the law, not on political considerations.

      So, to Greymarch, Robbie, “CG” and any other supposed “Republican” who doesn’t like Trump (MD, Author Mendez, Lincoln project, Bush/Cheney families and countless others), GFY! If it wasn’t for Trump getting elected and making the choices he made, you would have at least 6 justices making political decisions, and there would be no recourse for any branch of government or any citizen to object to those justices whims and feelings.

      Again, GFY.

    18. DW says:

      The SCOTUS is always important, but think about the next two years if the GOP gets control of the house (expected) AND the senate (will be very close).

      Biden will be a lame duck immediately, and his handlers, should they choose to keep using him, will put executive order after executive order on his teleprompter, and it will fall to the SCOTUS to stop these orders.

    19. NYCmike says:

      Thank G-D no mean tweets!

    20. DW says:

      A 6.2 earthquake just struck off the coast of Sumatra in Indonesia. Trump and DeSantis are to blame.

      # 15 DW
      And aiming pretty much at me.
      Trump and DeSantis must be at fault.
      Bummer. Even paradise has flaws.

    22. NYCmike says:

      “And aiming pretty much at me.”

      -And we thought Trump had an ego!

    23. jan says:

      Friday, the AP reported that a group of Trump’s allies just formed a new super PAC that will replace the former president’s old political action committee. The new PAC is expected to serve as the primary vehicle for midterm spending on GOP candidates, and as the AP noted, it will likely play a role in the 2024 general election, should he choose to run.

      To those who were criticizing/questioning why Trump was not sharing monies with the candidates he endorsed, here is a response – introducing a new PAC, evolved from his old PAC, that will give financial assistance to those who need it.

    24. Wes says:

      You’re a little late on that one, Jan, since I already posted about it on the previous thread.

    25. jan says:

      Glad you did, Wes. Sorry to post it again.

    26. NYCmike says:


      I appreciate you posting that information. I hadn’t seen it anywhere else.

    27. jan says:

      I’m watching the NC rally. The magnitude and enthusiasm of his crowds never ceases to amaze me. Also, how Trump manages to maintain his feistiness thru so many unpleasant obstacles, at his age, is an incredible feat.

    29. jan says:

      Tina, so many dem candidates are refusing to debate their R opponents. Why? Maybe they have nothing to run on except abortion.

      BTW, are you still living in Napa?

    30. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Patrick Buchanan is against the U. S. providing military support for Taiwan should China invaded:

      “The basic question raised by these Biden commitments to go to war with a China with a huge army and fleet, and in its own home region, is — why?

      No U.S. president after Richard Nixon has challenged China’s claim that there is but “one China” and Taiwan “is a part of China.”

      How many battle deaths, how many war dead, are we willing to sacrifice to prevent Beijing taking political control of an island of 23 million Taiwanese 6,000 miles away from the United States?”

    31. Tina says:

      Jan, I am still in Sf.

    32. Bitterlaw says:

      Buchanan also said England should have made a deal with Hitler rather than go to war. F him.

    33. NYCmike says:

      -NATO, NATO, NATO……every time jason, Robbie, “CG” and Bitterlaw speak about “permanent” alliances, I think back to what George Washington cautioned about those same things.

      This is how the United States gets repaid.

    34. NYCmike says:

      -It looks like Israel has their own “Biden”……”CG” must be so proud! Netanyahu was another one who was mean and annoying, just like a Trump!

    35. Bitterlaw says:

      Zzzzzzzzzz Washington’s comments about entangling alliances was made at a time when France and England were at war and there was pressure by many in the US to get involved at a time the nation has a fragile economy and almost no military.

      It is interesting that Trump, Putin

    36. Bitterlaw says:

      It is interesting that Trump, Putin, and NYC all dislike and want to weaken or destroy NATO.

    37. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      33. Turkey is no friend of Russia. The drones Turkey has supplied the Ukraine have played a major role Ukraine’s military successes against Russia:

      “How the Turkish-made TB2 drone gave Ukraine an edge against Russia

      The Turkish-made Bayraktar TB2 drone has been a key instrument used by the Ukrainian military to repel Russian forces.

      In an interview with Ukraine’s Come Back Alive foundation, Haluk Bayraktar said that while the defense firm can produce a maximum of just 20 TB2 drones a month, it plans to build a new facility in Ukraine to increase that number.

      The TB2 has recently gained notoriety for its role in countering Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Countless reports and videos have circulated depicting the drone’s effectiveness as a tool for Ukrainian resistance.

      Without the TB2, the Ukraine might lose the defensive edge it holds over Russia.”

    38. jason says:

      Buchanan is a flaming anti-semite scumbag…maybe Bunu cares what he thinks.

    39. jason says:

      NYC supports NATO as long as it only lasts for 6 months.

      Sounds like a few leftists working here are doing their best to remove a Trump appointee Caffari as head of Office of Inspector General.

      I do not classify this bunch as Deep State,but would classify them as a group of far left radials who want to destroy America.

      “Employees in anonymous letter ask Biden to remove DHS inspector general”

      “A group of employees who work for the internal watchdog at the Department of Homeland Security are calling on President Biden to remove their boss, saying they’ve lost hope the “ship will right itself.”

      © Provided by The Hill

      The request comes after numerous congressional panels have asked DHS Inspector General Joseph Cuffari to step aside from various investigations after he failed to alert lawmakers in a timely manner that Secret Service text messages for Jan. 6 had been “erased.”

      “In a statement from Cuffari’s office, he pointed to an employment satisfaction survey indicating higher “employee engagement” over his tenure and noting that in in-person meetings staff feedback has been “overwhelmingly positive.”

      “As he promised during his confirmation process and hearing, Dr. Cuffari has transformed DHS OIG to a model workplace,” the statement read.”

      The request comes after numerous congressional panels have asked DHS Inspector General Joseph Cuffari to step aside from various investigations after he failed to alert lawmakers in a timely manner that Secret Service text messages for Jan. 6 had been “erased.”

      “An anonymous letter shared by the Project on Government Oversight was signed by “concerned DHS OIG employees representing every program office at every grade level” who added that “for fear of retaliation, we cannot identify ourselves.”

      “Providing effective oversight of the newest and third largest Cabinet department is difficult enough, it should not be made more difficult by our own leadership,” the employees wrote.

      “We need help. We can no longer be silent when faced with continuous mismanagement of DHS OIG at its highest levels. IG Cuffari has made clear that he wishes to remain in his position, even in the face of prolonged, deserved criticism in the media, from Congress, from other oversight entities and from his own staff. A true leader would recognize the effect of his actions on his workforce and understand the right thing to do would be to step aside. However, IG Cuffari is not a true leader. He instead acts to weaken and undercut his career staff at every step.”

      “In the past he has been accused of removing information from OIG reports, and failing to act on a startling sexual harassment survey at DHS or a request to investigate Secret Service’s role in clearing protesters from Lafayette Park so Trump could take a photo holding a bible.

      But the revelation that he failed to alert Congress to missing Jan. 6 texts both from Secret Service agents and two agency leaders has ignited the most recent criticism.

      The employee letter says Cuffari has “refus[ed] to move forward with important proposed work without reason,” delayed investigations for months or years, shutting out career staff “so that only he and his inner circle assign most reviews,” “interfering with staff efforts to gather information,” and “significantly editing reports to remove key findings, which weakens the impact of the reports.”

      The White House did not respond to request for comment.

      In a statement from Cuffari’s office, he pointed to an employment satisfaction survey indicating higher “employee engagement” over his tenure and noting that in in-person meetings staff feedback has been “overwhelmingly positive.”

      “As he promised during his confirmation process and hearing, Dr. Cuffari has transformed DHS OIG to a model workplace,” the statement read.

      Cuffari has been asked to step aside from his Jan. 6 investigation by both the House Oversight and Homeland Security committees, “in light of the cascading revelations about your failure to conduct this investigation effectively and communicate truthfully with Congress.”

      The Senate Judiciary Committee asked the Justice Department to instead take over the investigation.

      In responding to the committees, Cuffari posted his response publicly and sent it out to all DHS OIG employees, something they said was a warning sign to staffers.

      “His actions do not represent this 700-plus workforce. His actions continue to damage his own, and DHS OIG’s, reputation. His actions are not the actions of a true leader. His actions embarrass the entire agency. His actions impede and greatly hinder our mission,” the letter from the employees said.”

      To: Proud ObamaC0m, Tim, Messy, Paul et al:


      This just-released Washington Post/ABC Poll will put you in tears. Biden has a 39% approval rating and the GOP is +5 among Likely Voters in the GCB!

    50. Phil says:

      ABC switched to the likely voter model. Rich Baris has been screaming for the last three weeks that there is no excuse for the fact that all these MSM polls have been using registered voter models after Labor Day. To wait this long to do so is unprecedented….and it’s deliberate.

    51. Bitterlaw says:

      I don’t usually watch movies based on cartoon characters. I did like the first Wonder Woman movie and the Israeli actress is hot. The second one sucked. That said, I saw commercials for She-Hulk Attorney at Law. My wife and I watched 4 episodes last night. It is hilarious.

    52. Phil says:

      Robert Cahaly at Trafalgar has consistently had it around R+5 in his last three polls. He uses the likely voter model….but then he isn’t in the tank like the majority of pollsters who have been using registered voter models in order to deliver results the NYT, Washington Post, CNN, the three major networks and other MSM outlets demand. If the pollsters want the gig they have to play ball and deliver the right results. Unfortunately, the media pollsters couldn’t hold off forever switching models and ABC is now the first to do the inevitable – switch over and deliver the bad news. I look for the other outlets, particularly the college polls to hold out even longer or at least as long as they can. Quinnipiac is my favorite. You know, the one that has Stacy Abrams essentially tied in Georgia and Walker down something like 6. The one that released a poll in 2020 the first week in October showing Biden up 11 in Florida. We will get some more of those over the next two to three weeks. Pure garbage…..and expect fraud Nate Silver to do what he always does. Four straight polls in a row showing Mastro down in Nevada – and he still has her winning. I could go on and on.

    58. Tgca says:

      Ouch! Kari Lake Bish slaps fat skank Liz Cheney and calls her out as a Dem.

      Lake told Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” host Maria Bartiromo that “the people of Wyoming can’t stand” Cheney and she was sure “the people of Arizona don’t like Liz Cheney” either.

      “That might be the biggest, best gift I have ever received,” Lake said of Cheney’s comments. “The Republican Party, the new Republican Party, is the party of we, the people. It is no longer the party of warmongers.

      “Liz Cheney probably should change her voter registration. Turns out she really is a Democrat after all,” the GOP candidate added.

    59. Bitterlaw says:

      Happy New Year to out Jewish friends at HHR.

      …and this is the person GOP Senate leader MCConnell supports and befriends, as well as donated to her campaign this year but some here think he has the best interests of the GOP in mind.

      “I’m going to do everything I can to make sure Kari Lake is not elected.”

      Does that include campaigning for Democrats?

      Now I’m on to the Taken series.

      What should be next? Perhaps the Marvel franchise? I have about half of the 34 movies in the series. Some I didn’t care for as much so no need to watch them.

      It’s estimated the amount of young draft age males leaving Russia may be well over 100,000 initially, with even more leaving within the coming months. When you have one of the world’s lowest birth rates, it’s not a good idea to cause a massive amount of your young males to leave, not to mention getting tens of thousands of them killed when you use them like cannon fodder.

      Pro Bowl will be flag football.

      I have predicted that is what all the woke rule changes will eventually lead to.

      A game between wimps and pussies.

      “Does anyone else see the danger in this concession over the safety of NFL football?

      Not that anyone watches the Pro Bowl much anyway, and for good reason — the players don’t want to get banged up for a meaningless exhibition. The fans aren’t that interested in a game in which players aren’t invested, for whatever reason. And so the NFL will now reset the all-star game into a flag-football contest, which is even further removed from the weekly NFL experience that fans expect.

      “The Pro Bowl is something that we’ve been looking at for a while, really continuing to evolve,” NFL executive Peter O’Reilly told The Associated Press. “Coming out of last year’s game, we really made the decision based on a lot of internal conversations, getting feedback from GMs and coaches, getting a lot of feedback from players. We think there’s a real opportunity to do something wholly different here and move away from the traditional tackle football game. We decided the goal is to celebrate 88 of the biggest stars in the NFL in a really positive, fun, yet competitive way.”

      I am sure Bitter will be watching…

    88. jason says:

      To make the Pro Bowl at least interesting, offer each player on the winning team $1 million.

      Then you might see some hits.

    92. Phil says:

      While it’s highly unlikely that Smiley wins, this is just another indicator of the national environment. It’s why all this gas lighting from the likes of Nate Silver plus the university polling is BS. Pure crap. Silver’s got Kelly in Arizona and Fetterman in Pa each winning by six points. I can assure you he doesn’t believe that crap for a minute. All propaganda and pure gas lighting. Can’t wait for the next set of joke polls out of Quinnipiac.

      Fundamentals are:

      presidential approval

      it’s the first midterm of a new President

      party registration trend over the last year

      party turnout differential in party primaries

      All of the point so a bad election for Democrats. These are the fundamentals. The media is choosing to ignore them all as they wave the pom poms for the Democratic Party. Never discount the fundamentals.

    93. Wes says:

      Smiley is an unusually strong candidate, but even in a Dem midterm, I see no chance of her winning against Murray in Washington unless the environment for the national Dems is nearly identical to what the GOP faced in 1958.

Always at the gym, roller blading, jogging…..and then she got sick with that. No justice and very sad.

    96. NYCmike says:


    97. Gordon Allen says:

      PA and Washington Senate in identical positions?

    98. Wes says:

      Unlikely, Gordon.

      Fetterman is a non-incumbent with dubious personal history and legitimate questions about his ability to perform the demanding job of Senator. He’s also running in a state that, while generally more favorable to Dems on the presidential level, is traditionally close to the mean of American politics downballot. If I had to guess, I’d say Oz wins by 3 or 4.

      In contrast, Murray is a multi term incumbent from a reliably liberal state anchored politically in the high-turnout liberal bastion of Seattle. She faces a strong challenge from a surprisingly good GOP nominee in Tiffany Smiley, whose relative youth and exuberance contrast sharply with Murray’s now-cliched “mom in tennis shoes” schtick she’s used every six years since 1992. Although Smiley is a good candidate who would probably be cruising in a less monopartisan state, she has to contend with the reality of the current nature of Evergreen State politics, which favors Murray significantly enough for me to say only another Black Thursday would be likely to propel her into the Senate–and that would be a razor-thin, uncertain victory.

      Right now, I expect Murray to win by roughly the same margin she beat Dino Rossi by.

    99. NYCmike says:

      The NHL and NBA Al-Star games are very similar to the NFL Pro Bowl, in that no defense is played. I would say scrap all of the games, and let these ridiculously-athletically-talented individuals compete in other type games against each other. The NHL and NBA have done these things already with their Skills competition, the NFL should as well, kind of like what the Wide World of Sports used to do back in the 70’s. The games are useless to watch, unless you are a fan of uncontested slam dunks and sloppy passing with no worries of defense trying to stop it, which takes away all of the wonder of it.

      Fetterman leads Oz 45-42 in PA-Sen, Shapiro leads Mastriano 52-37 in PA-Gov. Don’t see Shapiro winning by that much, but Mastriano has been letting Shapiro define him and imo missed the boat on getting the resources to run a real campaign.

    103. jan says:

      Smiley has been gradually gaining ground on Murray. With 4.8% undecideds still in the mix she is less than 2% behind Murray in the latest polling. As the midterms get closer it appears that the gaps between a number of R candidates from their D opponents is getting smaller. As they say, “the trend is your friend,” and if said trend holds there may be more R wins than originally anticipated.

      Also, there are rumors going around that Pelosi and Schumer emails, during the January 2021 uprising, are being gathered and saved by McCarthy for public exposure as an October surprise. We’ll see……

      “Let’s just say that rapists, kidnappers, spies, counterfeiters, drug cartels, human traffickers, embezzlers, murderers and other criminals will be very happy for morons like you who don’t understand what law enforcement attributions the FBI has.”

      -It’s pretty safe in China and Russia and Iran and Saudi Arabia for most people, as the criminals are dealt with pretty harshly in those places……..of course, those same “citizens” better not say anything bad about the people in charge, or else they may join the criminals in prison…….

      Of course, there is DEFINITELY NO DANGER of that ever happening in the United States……the history of the world shows that……….doesn’t it?

    108. NYCmike says:



      -So, you think nothing should be done??

    109. jason says:

      Defunding the FBI is even more stupid than defunding the police.

      The FBI had been politicized and there has to be a change in its leadership and a return to its real mission.

      Both can be true.

    110. Wes says:

      Heh. Celinda Lake–who famously released a poll in 2010 claiming Elaine Marshall would beat Richard Burr here in NC–has released a push poll for Brian Bengs (D-SD) claiming Bengs leads John Thune 43-42:

      Sure, Celinda. The sky is also green.

    111. jason says:

      The FBI as an institution and its law enforcement attributions are essential, and for that reason it should not be disbanded or defunded, that is the talk of idiots and morons.

      The fact its leadership has been politicized and its being used for political purposes does not change that one single bit.

      It’s like saying the US should be abolished because we have Biden as President.

    112. NYCmike says:

      “It’s like saying the US should be abolished because we have Biden as President.”

      -Ummmm, he was “duly elected”, which is quite different from a government department.

      As for “defunding”, it wasn’t me who said anything about “defunding”.

      I do believe that we should be given an accounting of how much money is spent on specific categories of crimes. Sending 30 agents after a dad who shoved someone 12 months prior seems like a YUGE waste of money, that would better be used going after those other criminals that you say the FBI is so successful against.

    113. DW says:

      The Mets have a critical game tonight–even though they are not playing. They hold a 1.5 game lead over the Braves, and tonight the Braves play the Gnats.

      If the Gnats win, Mets will have a 2 game lead, meaning they would have to sweep two games home against the Fish, and three home games against the Gnats, and then just take 1 out of three from the Braves.

      If the Gnats lose to the Braves tonight, then the Mets will have to win 2 of 3 in Atlanta.

    114. jason says:

      that would better be used going after those other criminals that you say the FBI is so successful against.”

      At least NYC finally admits the FBI does go after “other criminals”.

      Baby steps..

    115. jason says:

      As for “defunding”, it wasn’t me who said anything about “defunding”.

      Good, so NYC and jason agree that the FBI should not be defunded.

      Hey look, the law of averages says someday we would have to agree on something.

      I am glad its something important.

    116. Phil says:

      The FBI needs to be cleaned up. Fast. They’re not supposed to be the Biden Administration’s goon squad. They have been a disgrace. As soon as Republicans gain control of congress they need to haul the FBI leadership before committee and lay into them….along with Garland and the rest of his corrupt Justice Dept. Enough of this crap. Time for some accountability. There has been none over the last two years – hell, six years since there was plenty of FBI hackery during the Russian collusion hoax while Trump was in office.

      Hurricane Ian Projected to Hit Florida Wednesday as Category 4

      When Hurricane Irma hit the FL Keys as a Cat 4 in 2017 and then as a Cat 3 in Miami/Fort Lauderdale, it did a lot of damage. My house was on the water and the surge from the ocean looked like white water rapids with waves bouncing in my yard from what is otherwise a peaceful waterway. We got about 4 feet of surge and it completely covered my boat dock.

      Irma took down two 35 foot trees and my yard looked like a jungle afterwards, and many iguanas illegally squatting in my trees were left homeless.

      I watched this all from my bedroom, less than 20 feet from the water. I watched the massive winds bend the trees down to the ground numerous times before they snapped.

      Had it been a cat 4 or 5, my house would have been surrounded with anywhere from 3 feet to 5 feet of water during the worst of the surge.

      Luckily, I had no damage to any structures except for a solar light on the boat deck smashed by falling branches…and the 40+ foot palm tree just feet from my living room swayed and bent with the wind but did not cone crashing through my roof.

      I was concerned my boat dock would be ripped from the pilings or collapse my sea wall but nada. Luckily, I had reinforced my boat dock a few years earlier.

      I NEVER want to live directly at the water’s edge in Floreedah again.

      Unless you lived through a hurricane, it’s hard to comprehend the enormous power and energy these bishes put out.

    128. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      Here is the perfect example of why Nate Silver/538 are not to be taken seriously. To wit:
      Overnight and without any news or polling, Silver moved its odds on the below Texas House race by 20 pts., from a Republican lead of +10 to the Democrat leading by 10.
      I guess 538 puts its fingers to the wind to make sure its House model does not show a GOP landslide.
      Maybe Wes, jason, Phil et al have a better explanation.

    129. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      Spectrum News/Siena College released an Ohio Poll that, at least for now has been taken down. RCP has it in its Averages.
      The incredulous thing about the poll results is that it shows DeWine(R) up by 23 in the Governor’s race and Vance(R) down by 3 in the Senate race. A 26% gap is not believable.
      Conservative scholars in the polling business have argued for years that most pollsters only survey urban and inner suburb Republicans who tend to be more moderate than their counterparts elsewhere.
      This poll, if ever made public, may be proof-certain of this theory.

    130. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      EXPOSED: Tim Ryan spent weeks childishly attacking JD Vance for having to miss the Ohio State game.

    131. Tgca says:

      …and so it begins. Rains and wind here in south Floreedah thanks to Ian. Though Ian is on his way to TAMPA/St. Pete…he is making his presence know in south Floreedah as well.

      I had a close call and avoided a life-threatening drowning situation yesterday after leaving the vet where my car was engulfed in like 3 inches of water.

      My feet got soaked! You know how unpleasant and dangerous it is to drive with your sneakers and socks soaked and feeling all squishy when you walk? I had to wring out the socks when I got home and my fabulous high-fashion footware is still not dry.

      Just to be on the safe side, I’m wearing my life vest all day.

    132. Tgca says:

      Sorry for my buds up in Tampa/St. Pete but you guys have not had a direct hit hurricane in 99 years. We always take the brunt down here in South Floreedah.

      Keep safe! It’ll be over in 36 hours and then we’ll have our beautiful Floreedah sunshine back.

      It’s a bit cruel of Mother Nature but usually we have a beautiful nice day after a hurricane so at least people can enjoy the weather as they clean up.

    133. Tgca says:

      Up to 300,000 in the mandatory evacuation area. Lots of libs there so I suggest we bus them to NYC or DC…permanently.

      DeSantis was nice enough to suspend tolls so folks can keep moving safely and without delay. If this was Caleefawnyuh, they’d probably raise the tolls…for white people at least because they’re using those racist roadways to escape.

    134. Phil says:

      The simple explanation, Sheeple, is that Nate Silver is a fraud. No more complicated than that. The guy was a failed baseball statistician until 2008 when he started his political gig. That election the Obama campaign shared their polling with him and his pronouncements were accurate. At least they were based on something. Since then, he just makes it up as he goes. He has no “model” despite his claims.

      Silver is a leftist fraudster and his site is a useful tool of the Democratic Party. It’s crap. He churns out the same drivel cycle after cycle. Every cycle his predictions are based on a bunch of ridiculous BS leftist polls that have dismal track records. He gives Quinnipiac a A rating? The same poll that missed Florida and Ohio in 2020 by 8 and 13 points respectively?

      I could cite his numerous misses 2016, 2018, 2020 but I’d be typing all morning. As far as his prediction showing Fetterman crushing Oz by 6 pts, wanna bet? You don’t because you’d lose your ass. The one thing you can always get from Silver is skewed nonsense over-inflating Democratic support every damned time.

      If you want to know where the midterms really stand maybe tune in tonight and watch the podcast “What Are the Odds” with Baris and Barns. Avoid Silver entirely because he is making an even bigger fool of himself than he did in all the other cycles.

    135. Phil says:

      I think 8 is about right for Texas, Sheeple and that number is rock solid. It won’t move much.

    136. Bitterlaw says:

      Oz gets the endorsement of the Philadelphia Police union.

      Shapiro also received their endorsement for Governor. Why? Because Shapiro supports unions and Mastriano supports right to work laws they claim are anti-union.

      Perhaps the Philly police union can go and help deter massive voter fraud in the inner city where we will see precincts that are 1500-0 for Fetterman

    138. Tgca says:


      Phil questions Nate Silver even though he is a God to the left.

      I can only surmise this is because Phil, like all his conservative brethren in Texas are homophobic bigots that hate Nate because he’s limp-wristed.

      Why else would anyone question a gay man who correctly called nearly all states in 2008 and 2012 elections and was Out Magazine’s Person of the Year in 2012. Here is a well educated man in economics, like AOC, who put his education to use to benefit millions of peeps.

      I myself understand it is unusual to many that gay men can be number geniuses instead of just actors, waiters, and hairdressers, but consider Alan Turing, and of course me too as number geniuses like Nate. So Nate had an off past few years. Big deal! Everyone has a slump now and then.

      I also have an excellent track record predicting election outcomes and I’ll go out on a limb and predict Newsom and Pelosi easily wins their re-elections in CA as well.

      1) The PID is R +3.5. In 2020 according to the CNN Exit Poll of AZ, the PID was 26(D), 35(R) and 39(I).
      2) Go to Question 9–The 10 Most Important Issues– you will NOT see Immigration listed!

    143. Gordon Allen says:

      Enjoy no.
      Surprised no.
      Attention level to: ZERO.

    144. Phil says:

      Baris said last night that he will be in the field in Arizona next.

      So immigration doesn’t make the top 10 issues – in Arizona? Yeah, Riiiiiiight

      Vote Dem, stop hurricanes…

      Sen. @amyklobuchar
      suggests voting for Democrats may stop hurricanes: “We just did something about climate change for the first time in decades. That’s why we have to win this as that hurricane bears down on Florida. We have to win in the midterms.”

    148. DW says:

      154 – an easy prediction I made last week come true. The left cannot help themselves. Never mind that there were no hurricanes in the month of August and its been a long time before a major hurricane…suddenly its an emergency again and you have to give up all your freedoms to let Dems stop these storms.

      “Hurricanes are declining worldwide, but the damage from them is increasing, new study finds
      Doyle Rice

      Why have hurricanes been decreasing? Give thanks to La Niña.

      Despite fewer storms, their increased damage can be attributed to “population and wealth along the coastline,” one expert says.
      Warmer sea-surface temperatures are likely to blame for the increase in storms that are rapidly intensifying.
      Hurricanes – and the storms like them around the planet – have actually been decreasing worldwide over the past 30 years or so, according to a study published this week. But at the same time, the damage they cause has been increasing.

      Why have hurricanes been decreasing? Give thanks to La Niña.

      “We attribute this decreasing global trend to the shift toward a more La Niña-like basic state in the overall tropical climate,” study co-lead author Phil Klotzbach of Colorado State University told USA”

    153. Wes says:

      Well, if the fact that the Philadelphia Police Union endorsed Shapiro while simultaneously endorsing Dr. Oz doesn’t tell you Mastriano is a weak candidate, this certainly should:

      That Mastriano was a dumpster fire waiting to happen was apparent long before the primary. Unfortunately Lou Barletta was on cruise control and never outflanked Mastriano before Trump endorsed the current nominee and sealed the deal for him. Now Republicans are looking at their impending third consecutive loss of the Keystone State Executive Mansion because of a trainwreck of a nominee.

      Fortunately Oz is gaining ground while Fetterman is running a lackluster campaign with unsavory allegations about Fetterman’s past becoming more the norm than the exception. At least the PAGOP looks increasingly likely to hold Toomey’s seat. That’s actually the more important race from a national perspective though I wish Republicans weren’t effectively punting PA-Gov just as they’re doing with MI-Gov.

    154. NYCmike says:

      Wes is slamming the candidate who won the primary…….again……

    155. Wes says:

      Oh, no, Mikey. I’m slamming the candidate who’s barely spending anything and is letting his leftist opponent outflank home at every turn.

      Explain to me exactly where I’m wrong about Mastriano since you want to launch into criticism of what I said.

      By the way, I guess you missed the fact that I criticized Lou Barletta for running a weak primary campaign in the very same post where I reamed Mastriano.

    156. NYCmike says:

      Why don’t the other candidates expose these “dumpster fires” in the primary?

      Why don’t the “leaders” of the party expose them?

      Why complain about the system which you say you support, yet also complain when the Republican Party tries less open methods?

    157. NYCmike says:

      It’s too late to slam the candidate.

      He is better than Shapiro, that’s all that should be spoken about. He has a legislature and the courts and the media to keep him from doing something stupid in office. Shapirom as a Democrat, really only has token Republican opposition if he wins.

      I say support the person who can do the least harm to the citizenry, and 99.999% of the time that person is the Republican

    158. Wes says:

      By the way, Mikey, Democrats overtly funded Mastriano just as they did Don Bolduc in NH:

      Mikey is defending the Republican nominee the Democrats backed… again…

      We’re seeing a pattern here from a guy who “claims” NOT to be a Schumer supporter.

    159. Wes says:

      You, Mikey, are a pathological liar. I never said anything about the primary system or complained about it.

      I posted legitimate criticisms of things Mastriano has done. You have yet to refute anything I said.

      If you can’t actually refute what I say, maybe you shouldn’t have jumped into this conversation.

    160. Wes says:

      Mikey has apparently conceded the point.

      ::Mike drop::

    161. NYCmike says:

      “::Mike drop::”

      -Wes reminds me a lot of Obama.

      I’m defending the Republican nominee. The primary is over, circle the wagons.

    162. NYCmike says:

      You are posting something from 2019 that Mastriano said… if a Democratic operative isn’t the source of that……you are the one doing Schumers bidding.

    163. Phil says:

      Oz always was going to rise. Baris polled this race a month ago. He actually had Mastriano running three points better than Oz at the time BUT…. Barris said Mastriano had hit a ceiling. He had already consolidated his base as much as he could while Oz had not and was losing 13% of Republican voters to Fetterman. He predicted that as Oz consolidated his base he’d catch Fetterman. Oz was already winning indies over Fetterman by 10 (even though indies only made up 10 percent of the sample). Losing 13% of the Republican base was the ONLY reason Fetterman was looking as good as he was late summer. He was NEVER going to get that kind of crossover Republican vote in the end. Baris said last week that Oz would run ahead of Mastriano in spite of what his polling was telling him at he time one month ago. In short, Oz had a lot of room to grow while Mastriano simply didn’t.

      I will be interested to hear what Baris has to say tonight about Pennsylvania when he goes through the entire list of the senate races. I will take notes and pass along what he has to say.

    164. Wes says:

      How exactly can you breathe and type simultaneously while being so stupid, Mikey?

      It was an interview Mastriano gave where he said that, you cretin. It’s his own words out of his own mouth. Do you honestly think Shapiro isn’t going to have a field day using this against Mastriano?

      It doesn’t matter if a Dem operative leaked it or not. It made the news already. It’s out there. He said it. It’s not as if Mastriano has much of a chance of winning before this given his ridiculously anemic campaign, but this is just one more bit of ammunition Shapiro has.

      When a GOP candidate–especially one the Democrats hand picked–is running a bad campaign and losing precisely because he’s a trainwreck of a candidate, I’m under no obligation to pretend he’s not on track for a decisive loss just because some Christine O’Donnell-supporting, New York-based Deadender feigns outrage when I point out the low quality of a candidate the Democrats selected in a GOP primary.

    165. Phil says:

      The other factor helping Oz down the stretch is how the undecideds might break. Baris found undecideds as approving of Biden at around 30%. That doesn’t bode well for Fetterman.

      We shall see.

    166. Wes says:

      Oz had a shaky start to his campaign but managed to get control of things while Fetterman has not been running a good campaign at all, Phil. That’s been reflected in the polling trend. At this point, in a week or so, I expect Oz to start pulling ahead and win by about 3-4 points in November.

    167. Wes says:

      This is bad news for the average American but good news for GOP electoral prospects. Biden really has sent the country into freefall:

    168. Phil says:

      Finally, Baris points out that Toomey was down in just about every poll but one in 2016. He was down consistently throughout the race to McGinty – including 11 of the final 12 polls – exactly one had Toomey up and it was just by a single point.

      Toomey won.

      Expect Oz to outperform the public polling on election day just like Toomey.

    169. Wes says:

      I agree, Phil.

    170. Phil says:

      You are on the exact same page as Baris, Wes. He said the other night he expected Oz to win the race by 3 or so.

      I know this. The current forecast by Nate the fraud Silver has Fetterman winning by a little over 5. That’s just beyond absurd.

    171. DW says:

      Maybe Juanita Fetterwoman can rent the Javits Center with its glass ceiling for her election night party. It was a great Venue for President Hillary in 2016.

    172. Wes says:

      Democrats are trying to tie Ted Budd to his father’s business’s bankruptcy. Budd’s father has forcefully denied any wrongdoing or any connection by his son to the bankruptcy. This feels like the kind of thing that can seriously backfire on Beasley:

    173. Wes says:

      In the most cynical of political maneuvers, Biden has not talked to Ron DeSantis to discuss relief efforts for the upcoming hurricane:

    174. DW says:

      “Biden has not talked to Ron DeSantis”

      Would be like a little-leaguer trying to give advice to Pete Alonso on how to hit home runs.

    175. NYCmike says:

      “It was an interview Mastriano gave where he said that, you cretin. It’s his own words out of his own mouth.”

      -Uh oh, looks like Wes is going into Wes-con 2 or 3……here is my statement “You are posting something from 2019 that Mastriano said….”

      I know he said it.

      Maybe take a moment to read before reacting like a biatch.

    179. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      Bitterlaw & jason:
      I have finally had a chance to fisk the Marist Poll showing Oz(R) down by 7. Here are the two oddities I discovered in comparing the poll with the 2020 CNN Marist poll of PA. To wit;

      1- PID- +1 Republican in CNN in 2020 to +4 Democrat in today’s poll
      2- Region
      a) Philly & Philly Suburbs are very close in CNN and today’s poll
      b) NE- 46(D)/53(R) in CNN and 50(D)/41(R) in poll. Isn’t this area the fracking section and a majority of the population are devout Catholics?
      c) Central- 38(D)/61(R) in CNN and 42(D)/54(R) in poll.
      d) West- 43(D)/56(R) in CNN and 47(D)/44(R) in poll.

    180. DW says:

      Marist is so bad, they could conclude that if you watched 100 times the replay of Mike Eruzione’s game winning shot against the USSR in the 1980 Winter Olympics, that there is a 52% chance Mike misses on the 100th replay.

    181. Tina says:

      And there’s this. It looks like we stand a great chance at wiping out the drats in Arizona

      Abe is 9 points up. ??

    182. Phil says:

      I always appreciate your postings on polls, sheeple. I like your fisking of polls on this site as well…but honestly, I wouldn’t waste my time on Marist.

    183. Phil says:

      ….but just for fun I looked at the internals of that poll. Fetterman leading by 22 points among independents. Huh? He’s not leading among independents period. I think Baris had Fetterman down 50-40 with them.

      Trash it.

    184. Gordon Allen says:

      Best advice: ignore polls until the actual one in November.
      Most are corrupt, or incompetent, mostly both.

    186. Wes says:

      Well, Sheep, it looks like a clear fundraising attempt on Beasley’s part piggybacking off the attack on Budd’s family for their business’s bankruptcy.

      Beasley is still as doomed as doomed can be.

    187. Phil says:

      Baris said tonight on his podcast that Budd wins by five. He then went into the dismal MSM polling history in NC over the last decade and showed how it has consistently overstated Democratic support in that state. I had not realized how bad it has been.

    188. Bitterlaw says:

      Thanks to SCOTUS and Mastriano’s own statements, the PA Governor’s race is 99% about abortion. I have not seen an ad with Shapiro in it since May. He doesn’t have to be seen. There are no Mastriano tv ads in Philadelphia or Pittsburgh.

      The fact that Mastriano is not down 20% is amazing but just highlights that any of the other GOP candidates would have had a fighting chance.

    189. Bitterlaw says:

      Not sure if he was trying to say the Eagles are enter than the Steelers or something else.

    190. Wes says:

      Didn’t you get the memo, Bitter?

      You can’t criticize Mastriano for running a bad campaign. He’s only the GOP nominee the Dems hand selected after all.

    191. jason says:

      I don’t think we should be so down on Mastriano. Most polls show him close enough to win if there really is a wave election.

      He was not my candidate, I urged my wife to vote for Barletta. But these polls might be underestimating his strength outside the major cities, he is going to get a massive vote in the smaller counties of PA, and there are a lot of them.

      I don’t agree with much that NYC says, and I think wes’ criticism is fair, but in the end Mastriano would be a much better governor than Shapiro and deserves to be supported by anyone calling themselves conservative.

    192. jason says:

      the PA Governor’s race is 99% about abortion”

      Maybe in Philadelphia.

      Here Mastriano is running pretty good ads about inflation, taxes, and how Shapiro is a Biden clone. He has outdoor signs everywhere featuring a creepy looking Biden next to a smiling Shapiro. Each ad has a different theme, but it is “if you like (high taxes, high prices, empty shelves, inflation, partial birth abortion, corruption, etc.) you will LOVE Shapiro.

    193. DW says:

      RRH –

      Well count me surprised that Marist would release a poll showing favorable results for the GOP. They have an Arizona poll among LVs this morning that finds Kelly leading Masters by just 50/45 and Lake leading Hobbs by 49/46. And the GOP is leading the AZ GCB by 50/45 which is 5-point shift to the right since 2020 when there was essentially a draw between the two parties.

      Also, Biden has a 42/55 JA.

    194. Bitterlaw says:

      Good to hear that Mastriano is running TV ads. It would be a waste of money to run them in the Philadelphia market. If he has any money left in late October he could run some here.

    195. Phil says:

      Kari Lake is a great candidate.

      Katie Hobbs is a lousy candidate.

      Lake will win by 4 or 5 points.

      The only question is whether she can pull Masters across the line.

      Mitch hopes not.

    203. Phil says:

      You know what I like about DeSantis? This has been said many times, but what I like about him is that he doesn’t back down. He doesn’t wimp out. He’s fearless. Never defensive. Sticks by his guns and beliefs….and you know what? It’s worked out pretty damned good for him. Contrast that, to say, the vast majority of Republicans in the senate who are scared sh*tless of the MSM and refuse to ever push back on MSM narratives. A great many Republican officeholders, a majority in fact, are afraid of their own shadows. It’s the reason the left absolutely loathes Ron DeSantis but also the reason they fear him.

      211. Phil

      Agree for the most part but to say DeSantis is not defensive is 100% wrong. He is a “very in your face defensive” guy. You cross him and he will go after you.

      Look at what he did to Disney as one example. I’m not complaining because I enjoy seeing Disney execs get their comeuppance – especially after what they did to American workers years ago by firing them and forcing them to train cheaper foreign workers to be eligible for severance packages – but what DeSantis did was not necessary.

      He wanted to send them a message for criticizing him and basically said “Don’t F*ck with Me.”

      Very Trumpish!

    210. Tgca says:

      Why all the complaining on the PA Gubbernor race? The people have spoken and chosen the candidates so you either support them or not at this point.

      Whining about should’ve could’ve would’ve is useless at this point.

      Mastriano is no worse than candidates Bob Dole or John McCain. Neither was the right person or presidential material in my view and should never had been the nominees.

      But that’s the way primaries work in a democratic process. Voters decide the candidates and sometimes you get chitty candidates or poorly run campaigns.

      C’est la vie!

      Noah Rothman
      Big storms are a clarifying test of political mettle. DeSantis has properly pivoted to sobriety in tone and seriousness of purpose, which helps his brand as a governor (literally) but puts in proper perspective the frivolity of more esoteric efforts to boost his national profile.

      – This is a big reason why I like DeSantis. The Trumpy stuff is mostly an act. At his core, he is a conservative Republican like the kind that were emerging circa 2014. Those kinds of candidates won the party its largest House majority since 1928 in 2014.

      I’m not sure what “gameboy” means by “The ignorance many in here show as to what is really going on over there is astounding.”, but the reflexive “pro-Putin tool”-type comments is the method by which the media and “leadership” stifle any dissent.

      “what does gameboy mean that people are ignorant about the situation”

      Pretty simple. Many seem to just tow the MSM narrative. There are plenty of sources (mainly independent reporters on the scene) out there to get the truth. I hear some say Putin wants to recreate the old Soviet Union, others say he wants to expand and take over Poland and the Baltic states. I haven’t seen evidence of this anywhere. As far as the billions of dollars we keep sending over there even CBS reported that a mere 30% makes it to where it’s intended to go (the story was taking down from their website within an hour or so…..shocking). Not sure how that maeks me a Putin tool LOL There is much more I can say but not usre if a polling website forum is the venue for it.

      We know from history giving money blindly to 3rd world or impoverished countries often results in significant amounts getting siphoned to corrupt leaders.

      I would feel bad for Biden in his cognitive decline if he weren’t such a sleazy individual with a history of graft, racism, and sheer pettiness in his political career.

      He’s an absolute disaster as President, and I hope Americans give him the Herbert Hoover/Jimmy Carter treatment in 2024.

    254. Wes says:

      The bastards!

      How dare they impugn the primary system by criticizing an objectively weak nominee?

      “We were opposed to Doug’s candidacy in the primary because we feared that he would not be able to connect with the independent and moderate Democrat voters that are necessary for Republicans to win in Pennsylvania,” said Matt Brouillette, the head of Commonwealth Partners, a pro-business group whose PAC is running the ads criticizing Shapiro.

    255. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      249. “Most of those posts usually end up referring to the Nazi leadership of Ukraine”.

      Yes, its Putin inspired name calling. Thankfully, the polling continues to show strong support for the Ukraine. A recent Gallup poll published September 15th — this poll was taken before the recent successful Ukrainian offensive:

      “Which would you prefer the U.S. to do in Russia-Ukraine conflict:

      End Conflict quickly, even if allow Russia to keep territory 31%
      Support Ukraine in reclaiming territory, even if prolonged conflict 66%”

      “Thinking about the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, do you think the United States is doing too much to help Ukraine, not enough, or the right amount?

      Too much 24%
      Not enough 38%
      Right amount 36%”

      The claim that only 30% of the weaponry provided made it to the front line has already been discredited, and seems preposterous given the recent Ukrainian offensive. This offensive continues, and the Ukraine is gaining more territory in the east.

      265. Thanks to US/NATO military support, not very well.

      Now about 200,000 Russian military age males are attempting to flee Russia; there are demonstrations against the war; and Putin rein is looking increasing precarious:

      “Ukraine’s Main Military Intelligence Directorate (GUR) reported on September 27 that parents of first-year military cadets at the Kuznetsov Naval Academy in St. Petersburg—Russia’s premier naval staff college—protested the possibility that their children might be sent to fight in Ukraine.[55] The GUR reported that academy personnel have placed the cadets under constant surveillance to ensure that they do not leave or contact their parents and that the leadership of the academy has refused to meet with the parents of the cadets. Resistance to mobilization at one of Russia’s premier military academies, not just among regular civilians, indicates the steep deterioration of morale among personnel the Kremlin intends to deploy to Ukraine.”

    258. Country Dick Montana says:

      ” Catastrophic destruction hitting Fort Meyers right now as video shows.”

      Gordie, IIRC, lives in Naples, just south of Ft Meyers. It has also taken a hit from Ian. Depending on how close he lives to the Gulf, there is a good chance that he may also experience catastophic losses. Agree or disagree with him, love him or not, I am hoping for the best for him.

    260. Tgca says:


      I understand the criticism of Mastriano but mocking someone’s religious belief is bigotry, as much as mocking their skin color.

      As a non-believer you may not believe in prayer or faith and think it’s absurd, and that is fine and good just like many believe democracy is an absurd concept because of enduring heinous situations many still endure under democracy.

      A belief system doesn’t mean you will always benefit from believing.

      I don’t expect you to understand faith but most with faith believe that regardless of what you do or ask of the Lord, it is not a wish to be granted at will so having faith to the true believers is not an absurd concept and they understand being faithful does not mean you don’t experience losses and challenges in life.

      So I find nothing wrong with people putting hope in their faith whether it be to get a job, overcome an illness, save a dying loved one or prevail in an election.

    261. Wes says:

      I wasn’t mocking his religious beliefs, Tg. He’s free to believe what he wants. I was highlighting the fact that he’s doing everything possible to drag his own campaign down.

      This isn’t seminary school. Prayer and fasting aren’t going to make him Governor. Raising money and actually campaigning may.

      If he wants to continue to live in his echo chamber and do everything but what he actually should do to win the race, fine. It’ll be on him when Shapiro declares victory in 41 days.

    264. Wes says:

      We now have our second split endorsement by a law enforcement agency in PA:

      Oz is on the upswing at a critical time and will benefit from these endorsements. By getting the co-endorsements, Shapiro is holding his own at worst and potentially putting daylight between himself and Mastriano.

      Net plus for Oz and Shapiro. Significant net minus for Mastriano and Fetterman.

      Nate the hack fraud Silver continues to whistle past the graveyard. Fetterman by 5 (rounded)

      However, Nate’s latest this morning has Fetterman’s lead dropping from 5.3 to 4.9

      Come on Nate. You are going to have to do a lot better than that.

      He also has Kari Lake within .2 of outstanding no debater candidate Katie. Sorry Nate. You are not only late to the party you still haven’t gotten it right. Governor Lake. Say it with me, Nate.

      Nate this morning – “Republicans could still make a comeback but as of now there is no evidence that is happening” Ok, chief. Three to five point movement on the generic ballot across the board isn’t any evidence?

      Hang on to those summer university polls of registered voters as long as you can you fraud.

    316. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Robert Cahaly believes the polls don’t accurately state the potential Republican vote:

      “This year, our fear is that people are not going to be polled that are Trump supporters because all that Biden has said, and all the apparent attacks, and people coming after them and they’re just hesitant even to participate. I think everybody will underestimate them, including us. Republican turnout will exceed even what we predict.”

    317. hugh says:

      One good thing about the polling bias is that Uncle Fester is still leading making it too late for the PA democrats to replace him with an electable candidate. If that guy wins, I will be absolutely stunned. While we do not have the best candidate, the other guy is perhaps the worst dem candidate in every category you can come up with. MOF will be huge, but come on man!

    318. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      321. California just gets worse and worse. The homeless situation is ridiculous — former basketball player Bill Walton is blasting the mayor of San Diego for not dealing with it.

      In fact, the federal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals is a major cause of the problem. It issued an opinion forbidding the removal of the homeless from public sidewalks and public areas unless there are sufficient shelter beds. It has now come out with a decision reaffirming the ruling, and also stating homeless tents and belongings also cannot be removed. A Trump appointed judge dissented from the majority opinion

    319. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      327. Is Uncle Fester putting a lightbulb in his mouth and getting it to light up considered a renewable energy source?

    320. Phil says:

      One good thing about the polling bias is that Uncle Fester is still leading making it too late for the PA Democrats to replace him with an electable candidate.

      Good point, Hugh. Don’t think I haven’t thought of that myself. However, it’s not too late until they actually print and send out the ballots. Remember, it’s Pennsylvania. Elections there are run by the left wing hacks on the Pa Supreme Court who will completely ignore statutory election law and their edicts will be fully and gleefully carried out by the Democratic SOS.

      One other possibility. If Fetterman gets down in the polling and they can’t replace him look for them to pitch having people vote for him with the promise he won’t take office and his Democratic replacement will be another Democrat appointed by the Democratic governor. In other words, promise the voters that a vote for Fetterman is a place holder and they’ll actually be getting another Democrat. It would be hard to pull off, but the Senate is at stake and Democrats don’t relinquish power easily.

      It gets harder and harder as time goes by, but we aren’t there yet.

    321. DW says:

      326 – this is very real and Cahaly doesn’t even mention the impact of Covid. There are MANY conservatives who in the past had no problem sharing with other their views or their decisions. But now that even medicine has been politicized and whether or not you have had the shots they falsely claimed was a vaccine–this info can be used against you.

But seeing that I am excited about him as a potential candidate it probably won’t happen.

      Such leadership we have now.

      Biden: WHERE’S JACKIE??

      Harris: North Korea is strategic because it is north of Korea. South Korea is also strategic because it is south of Korea. I am not as sure about East Korea or West Korea, but they are probably strategic too.

      Harris made that statement on the border with NK. Glad she found a border worth visiting.

    327. JeffP says:

      The untold story behind Putin wanting Ukraine is the spiritual significance of Kiev to the Russian Orthodox Church. He is a desperate zealot that would use nukes to assure possession of it I fear. Secondly it is strategic to their defense and part of his vision of assembling the USSR again.

    328. jason says:

      Putin’s strategy is already working well with the Putin toadies, sycophants and appeasers.

      And he is annexing 4 provinces of a sovereign country, but of course, he is no threat.

      “Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday will formally move to seize four Ukrainian territories by signing documents that the Kremlin is calling “accession treaties.”

      The signing ceremony, to take place in the Grand Kremlin Palace on Friday, marks Putin’s attempt to annex the regions of Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia, even though Russia does not fully control any of them either militarily or politically.

      The move, in defiance of stern international warnings including from President Biden, potentially slams the door on diplomacy for years to come, and almost certainly assures further escalation of the war in Ukraine, with Kyiv insisting it will fight to reclaim all of its lands and Western allies promising to send more weapons and economic assistance. …

      Putin’s move, which is a blatant violation international law, will further isolate Russia, triggering new Western sanctions. But Putin nonetheless appears to hope that a long, brutal war will eventually fray Western support for Ukraine and curtail military and economic aid that is providing a lifeline to Kyiv.”

    329. jason says:

      and part of his vision of assembling the USSR again”

      You have to know that right now the media is scouring Florida desperately looking for someone who survived but lost family and home, and is willing to say, “Gov. DeSantis never warned us, and never provided any help, and now my family is dead–the blood is on his hands.”

    332. Phil says:

      Looks like the word has gone out from the Democrats to their MSM puppets that it’s now ok not to cover for Joe’s dementia. He was never going to run again, but now it’s official. The NYT, PBS and other leftist outlets covered Joe’s search for Jackie.

      They don’t believe he’s electable any longer so time to throw him into the scrap heap. No longer useful and we all know what Democrats do to those that can no longer help them.

      I think once the WH press core ganged up on Biden’s Press Secretary over the search for Jackie that said a lot.

    333. Phil says:

      Cleared with Fetterman? Are you kidding? Fetterman will do what he’s told…just like all the other 2020 Democratic candidates who suddenly dropped out in 2020 once the decision was made to go with Biden. It’s how Democrats roll. A quick phone call from Obama to Amy Klobuchar and to Buttigieg and it was done, baby.

      Fetterman has a choice? LOL

    334. DW says:

      Phil, exactly. WHERE’S JACKIE?? is not a new development in the mental condition of Biden. This one is just impossible to explain away.

      Many elderly who struggle with memory issues will be like this. The Widow will say, “Where’s Joe?” referring to her deceased husband and then catch herself, “Oh that’s right Joe is gone.”

      Biden said, “…including bi-partisan elec[ted] officials like representative [goverer?], Senator Braun, Senator Booker, Representative Jackie, are you here? Where’s Jackie? I uh I think shuh she was going to be here.”

      He failed to correct himself after asking if she was there, then asked again, and THEN went on to reflect on how she was going to be there!

      If he was early stage, he would have caught himself after the first or second gaffe, but its the final statement he mumbled that indicates his mind is LONG GONE.

      346 Bitter, sure, but remember years ago here in Virginia Senator Warner was sending similar warning emails, at the same time the polls had him up 15 points or more over Gillespie. In the end it took 9000 sudden votes out of Northern Virginia after the media said they were 100% reported to prevent Senator Gillespie.

    338. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      Wes: Here is a new North Carolina Poll from Cygnal. In the Senate race, Budd(R) & Beasley(D) are tied at 43. The pollster sees NC as very educated beyond the 2020 CNN Exit Polls.
      Of particular interest are the two State Supreme Court races. The Republicans lead in both by mid- single digits.

    339. Wes says:

      Going back to 2014, NC polling has underestimated the Republican Senate candidate every time, Sheep. I’m not sure why that is, but it’s been a persistent trend. I guess pollsters weight based on their perception of the state’s electorate rather than the actual electorate.

      Democrats have a high floor here because of the Triangle, the rural black counties, and Charlotte, but Republicans have an equally high floor and in most instances a higher ceiling. It takes the GOP’s punting on a race or an unusually strong candidate such as Roy Cooper for Dems to win statewide.

      Republicans certainly aren’t punting on the Senate race, and Beasley is no Roy Cooper.

      As such, I’m not remotely buying the idea that Beasley is tied with Budd.

      “That’s been undeniably confirmed over the last seven months.”

      Yeah, due to massive military and other assistance.

      Putin not only “wants” to recreate the Soviet Union, he is actively engaged in doing so by both political and economic (ex.: Belarus) and military means (ex.: Ukraine) means.

      If the question is how much should he be allowed to recreate then the answer should be none and he needs to be stopped by all means available.

      If the question is how much capability does his economic/political/military have in achieving what is obviously a long term goal then the answer is it depends on how much resistance will be offered to his plans.

      Unilateral surrender, which is what the Putin appeasers, sycophants and toadies here and morons like Tucker Carlson propose would just allow Putin to consolidate his gains so he can move on to the next “domino”.

      It is clear as a bell that the Russians never had the slightest chance of overruning Ukraine.
      The military aid we’ve provided has allowed them to continue the fight,and actually launch counterattack. Good for them. But the Russians were stopped by the Ukranians first.
      The Russians were and are gross overrated as a conventional military threat

      Apparently Putin went on one of his anti-Gay rants in his speech yesterday about annexing part of the Ukraine.

      It’s been getting better for the GLBT community in Ukraine, and many gays are fighting in the Ukrainian military — they know what will happen if they are captured, or the homophobic Putin takes over the Ukraine:

      “With such limited LGBTQ+ rights in Ukraine and Russia’s solidly anti-LGBTQ stance, one can imagine that a Russian occupation of Ukraine would mean that LGBTQ+ individuals would be in grave danger and subject to severe persecution on a daily basis. Under Russian occupation, LGBTQ+ Ukrainians would be subject to imprisonment and even death, among other atrocities that often happen during an occupation.

      There are already reports that human rights violations and abuses in the aftermath of a further invasion are being planned by the Russian government. Russia has a history of gross human rights violations such as the anti-gay purge in the Russian republic of Chechnya, which drove the LGBTQ+ community underground, as well as in Donbas, where Putin supporters have spread homophobic rhetoric, resulting in increased instances of assault, detention and violence toward the LGBTQ+ community.”

    370. Robbie says:

      I don’t think it’s any coincidence polls have moved towards just about every Republican candidate over the last couple of weeks as MAGA daddy has faded from the headlines. This is certainly not the only reason Republican prospects have improved, but it’s been a factor.

      Prior to August, Republican chances, especially in the House, looked great. But as big Donnie became front and center after the FBI search and dominated the headlines, Republican polling fell in August.

      Now, Trump has faded from the headlines and Republicans have improved. Again, this isn’t the only reason. Inflation, the war in Ukraine, and the stock market have hurt Biden a lot, but it’s much easier for those issues to be front and center when Trump is nowhere to be found.

      Of course, this hasn’t helped every Republican. Two heroes of the MAGA movement, Masters and Mastriano, have fallen further and further behind because both were awful candidates, but snuck through contested primaries mostly due to the MAGA base endorsing their crackpot views.

      I hope the hard right base in PA enjoys another four years of Democrat rule because they backed an idiot. Of course, maybe Mastriano’s 40 days of fasting and prayer will turn the tide.

    372. michael corleone says:

      Bitter – I wouldn’t write off Mastriano. His bio is more impressive than Shapiro’s, there are still five weeks until the election, and the economy is crumbling. Oz is already ahead of Fetterman and Mastriano is probably about 2-3 points behind. (I think you need to apportion the undecideds to Doug and Oz)

      Mastriano is barely running a campaign and has no money, MC.

      That makes writing him off really easy.

      Let’s not unskew polls either to get desired results. That didn’t work out too well in 2012. Oz is behind but surging. Mastriano is floundering well behind Shapiro.

      Oz is on a trajectory to catch and pass Fetter(wo)man by 11-8. Mastriano is clearly not on the same path against Shapiro.

    376. Bitterlaw says:

      MC – Mastriano does have an impressive resume. Too bad none of it is known to swing voters in Pittsburgh and SE PA because he can’t run ads here because he has no money. Shapiro is not running any positive ads here. His ads are entirely about abortion and Mastriano saying he can decertify all elections. I can’t remember the last general election where a candidate’s own voice was only heard saying “I’m______ and I approve this message.”

    377. Tgca says:


      Retarded post. Trump has been instrumental in energizing the conservative and GOP base.

      Of course the news is going to focus more on the election as it approaches and knock all other non-sensational stories off the front page. That is how it works dumbazz

      Trump has had a 93% success rate in electing those in primaries he supported or campaigned for. That’s impressive.

      Trump is helping candidates and energizing the GOP base.

      If you think most Americans are worried about Trump with all the other chit going on right now then you are really retarded.

    378. Phil says:

Concerned parents had protested the decision.

    384. Wes says:

      According to Phil, Baris says Mastriano already has his base locked down, which is why he isn’t gaining, while Oz is bringing his base around, which is why Oz is surging.

      My philosophy about elections is to support the best of the options given. In the case of Mastriano I think he is a compelling figure for a huge swath of voters who want an honest broker to represent them in government, and his religious and military discipline appeals to those who value those qualities. Consequently, I am personally throwing $$$ into his race, as he is apparently getting little establishment or big donor help. I’ve done the same for several handfuls of other candidates, in hopes some of it will stick to walls of wins.

      My predictions of midterm outcomes are that some R long shots will surprise people like Joe Kent and Smiley in WA, Blake Masters in AZ, and am crossing fingers for Kelly tshibaca in Alaska. IMO, if people want to drastically alter the ideological course we’re on, then a slug of outsiders (rather than insiders) will have to be elected.

    398. Bitterlaw says:

      Mastriano is a compelling figure to enough Republican primary voters to get the nomination. He has little to no appeal to swing voters. I respect your desire to support him. I do not think he is going to win. Sorry.

      Trump will be going to Warren, MI this Saturday to campaign for R Governor candidate Tudor Dixon. His presence should help her numbers.

    400. jan says:

      Bitter, I know Mastriano is an outlier candidate. But, I’m the type to support someone with admirable qualities and/or good policies rather than the best chances to take the prize.

    401. Bitterlaw says:

      everyone on this site likes to over think things. this a wave election PERIOD the republicans will win every close senate race , Georgia , pa nv, azi Washington, Co, new Hampshire , and maybe ct. the house at least 40 seats . put it in the bank

    403. DW says:

      ken, I appreciate your optimism, but I have zero confidence that people have enough brain cells to know whether they should vote for prosperity or poverty.

      You can take a bunch of voters into a study where you set before each of them two plates. One is a delicious meal, the other plate is clearly labelled to be deadly rat poison that if eaten will leave the victim writing in horrific pain for several hours before they die.

      Many of them given those choices will eat the rat poison. That’s the intelligence of many voters right now.

    404. Wes says:

      Republicans have realistic shots at winning GA and NV in the Senate. AZ is certainly not a guarantee but is possible.CO and NH are long and longer shots respectively but are not out of reach. WA has a strong GOP challenger in a state where that doesn’t matter because of the Dem vote sink in Seattle. CT has never been a realistic option.

      If Republicans pick up GA, NV, AZ, CO, and NH, they will have a great night in the Senate.

      Let’s not pretend that has any remote chance of translating into victory in states where the majority of voters currently display no inclination to send a Republican to the Senate.

      The GOP in MI has completely failed in its ability to make a case against Whitmer and her fellow moonbats, Jan. At this point, Dixon will be lucky to get within nine of Whitmer.

      What will be the biggest October surprise in this election? Hint:

      2) it will start in the middle of the month and accelerate into the third week of the month

      I will check later to see if anyone has gotten it right.

    414. Tgca says:

      As I noted before, the democratic process in PA worked and the GOP primary voters have decided who they wish to represent them in the GE whether folks here like the candidate or not.

      Also some candidates are before or after their time. Goldwater got slaughtered in 1964 but he ushered in the national conservative movement that Reagan capitalized on and won in 1980 because the timing was right. If Reagan had tried to run prior to 1980, he would not have won and been a footnote in CA history.

      So it’s not only the messaging but timing. Trump broke open PA for the GOP after decades as a Dem state. It could take a few election cycles for PA to once again be competitive for the GOP which has occupied the highest office only 4 of the last 20 years.

      Mastriano may not be the right person at this time but if he can help make inroads, that’s good for the GOP.

    415. Tgca says:


      I don’t recall anyone posting here siding with Russia.

      People here have differing views on how to address the war. It could have been avoided from Day 1 but due to poor US and European leadership, we’re stuck with it for now.

      All communists nations are a threat to the free world. But Russia is a much smaller threat than China at this time.

      China is locking up Asia and moving into South America as well. If this continues, they will replace the US as the preeminent superpower.

    416. DW says:

      Sheeple, I will play along with your riddle.


      1) Biden suffers a major medical event in the middle of October, Harris is installed while Biden is in a coma, and she accelerates the crisis in Russia, getting us into WWIII by the third week of the month.

      2) Democrat judges rule that by 2023, all new children entering kindergarten must have their genders surgically changed.

      3) A huge hurricane will wipe out New York City turning the state into a red state, and then electing a Republican Governor.

      4) Applications for the student loan forgiveness will be advertised to start in the middle of October, but the design of the database will be so badly flawed that no one can make it work, resulting in angry former students who thought they were going to get forgiveness, but now cannot get it.

      5) Baseball playoffs will be canceled by a Democrat judge over concerns that that fans traveling to and from the stadiums needlessly damages the climate.

      6) A whistleblower will reveal that it was Fauci himself who created Covid in the Chinese lab so that he could wipe out as many humans as possible because it turns out he is a key member of the De-population movement.

      7) The price of gas will go through the roof, $5 a gallon by mid Oct, and then $8 by the third week.

      8) A new COVID strain pops up that is actually more deadly than prior strains and Biden orders new lockdowns, masks, and shot mandates.

    417. Paul says:

      What do you think about Biden sending Trump to Moscow for negotiations? Would it help?

    418. Tgca says:


      If that’s a serious question, I’m not sure it would help because Trump has no power to make Pootin fear anything and we know Pootin clearly does not fear Biden.

      I see only one possible way it would help and that’s only if Pootin wanted a way out of this war and could use the idea that Trump mediated a resolution Biden could not.

      But I doubt Biden wants Trump upstaging him. It would suggest Biden is the wrong president and Trump should be re-elected.

      I think Biden and team would rather risk nuclear war with Russia then provide Trump an opportunity to do something they failed at.

      Alternatively, McConnell could have added, “No federal funds shall be spent to hire 87,000 new IRS agents, as established in the IRA.”

      Or: “No federal funds shall be spent by the IRA’s 87,000 new IRS agents to audit any taxpayer who earns less than $400,000 annually.”

      Any of those votes would have forced Democrats out of their bunkers and into the open. If they voted “yes,” then hallelujah. If they voted “no,” the GOP would force the Big Media to discuss Democratic recklessness on the “border,” lust for new IRS agents, and desire to unleash these agents against middle-class taxpayers.”

      “Ukraine has encircled thousands of Russian troops at the eastern town of Lyman, a bastion that is critical for Moscow, in an operation that is still under way, according to a Ukrainian military spokesperson.

      The capture of the town, which Russia has used as a logistics and transport hub for its operations in the north of the Donetsk region, would be a major new setback for the Kremlin’s plan to seize all of the industrial Donbas region.”

    449. Tgca says:


      Reagan would not have won the presidency in the 1970s because the mood of the country was not on the side of conservatism yet. He did not finish his conversion to conservatism until the 1970s. He was passing lefty legislation in CA though the 1960s. Think the largest ever CA tax increase or the passage of ABORTION rights which he later acknowledged was a mistake.

      He was mentored by Goldwater and others so by the time 1980 came around, both he and the country were ready for an alternative conservative agenda and one who could communicate it well. Reagan did NOT come up with these conservative ideas, he was a student of it mentored by others and became the communicator of them.

      Yes, the alternative would be much more expensive. And even then since the displacement of millions of people and all the destruction of the economy and infrastructure, bombings, shelling, civilian deaths, rapes, torture, exiles, etc. have occurred on Ukrainian soil it won’t be a “victory”.

      Moscow has confirmed that its forces have left the town it had been using as a front-line supply hub. The state-owned RIA Novosti agency quoted the Russian defence ministry as saying that “due to the threat of encirclement”, Russian soldiers had “retreated to more advantageous lines”.

      You can’t have much more revisionist history than that.”


      Tgca’s revisionism of history is really a joke.

      Reagan was already a conservative in the 50’s, and became officially a Republican in 1962 and was an active conservative spokesman for Goldwater in 1964.

      From then on he energized the conservative movement in the US and was an influential writer and speaker for conservative causes. From the mid 50’s onwards Reagan was a doctrinaire conservative, and in fact his work as a GE spokesman was to extol the role of capitalism and free enterprise.

      “In 1957 he spoke again in similar terms but with a crucial twist. America, he declared, was engaged in an “irreconcilable conflict” between “those who believe in the sanctity of individual freedom and those who believe in the supremacy of the state.” But the threat, he now asserted, was found not just abroad but here at home. “[A] great many of our freedoms have been lost,” he contended, and it was not “an outside enemy” that had taken them. “It’s just that there is something inherent in government which makes it, when it isn’t controlled, continue to grow.” “Remember,” he warned, “that every government service, every offer of government financed security, is paid for in the loss of personal freedom.” Whenever anyone urges you to “let the government do it, analyze very carefully to see whether the suggested service is worth the personal freedom which you must forego in return for such service.”

      With these words Ronald Reagan effectively crossed the political Rubicon. During the next half dozen years, he articulated his message with increasing vehemence and alarm. Speaking before the Executives’ Club of Chicago in the spring of 1958, he declared that “the revolution of our times is collectivism,” “the tendency of all of us to turn to the government for the answer to everything—centralizing of authority in one central body of government.” He castigated the nation’s tax code as the “machine” of this “revolution.” A year later, at a dinner in Schenectady, New York, he took issue with those who claimed that taxes could not be cut until government spending was cut first. “No government in history,” he rejoined, “has ever voluntarily reduced itself in size. Government does not tax to get the money it needs; government always finds a need for the money it gets.” Americans were losing their freedom, he told a GE interviewer afterward. The government’s tax burden on the economy was endangering “our private enterprise system.”

      A few months later, in a letter to Vice President Richard Nixon, Reagan reported his amazement at the reaction his set speech was getting from audiences around the nation. He was “convinced” that “a groundswell of economic conservatism” was “building up” and that it “could reverse the entire tide of present day ‘statism.’”[74] “Economic conservatism”: for the first time, perhaps, he used this term to describe his new identity. Ronald Reagan had become a man of the right.

      By 1960, Reagan later wrote, he “had completed the process of self-conversion.” It was a revealing phrase. No outside proselytizer, he seemed to suggest, had led him down the sawdust trail. No one else had coaxed or compelled him to switch direction. Instead, by a long and arduous process, he had changed himself.

      But there had been a supporting cast, as it were, in the final act of his ideological transformation. By the time Reagan’s affiliation with General Electric ended, in 1962, he had visited every one of its 135 (or more) plants. In his eight years of work as GE’s “good-will ambassador,” he had delivered more than nine thousand extemporaneous speeches and had shaken the hands of at least 250,000 people. In the words of one of his General Electric associates, Reagan had been “saturated—marinated—in middle America.”[ Out of this immersion in the dreams, frustrations, and grievances of ordinary Americans had come a libertarian, populistic conservative with a mission.”

The fact the Ukrainians took back Lyman so quickly, barely giving Russians time to flee, shows how bad Putin’s position is now. Rumblings are the Ukrainians may soon retake Kherson as well.

      And yet Jason fraud, Phil, and the rest would be tickled pink to have this twice impeached scumbag be the nominee for a third straight time.”

      But at least this wins over the white working class voters, right?”

      Trump won over all types of working class voters, that is why he won.

      I know you hate them, but your party of country club elitist Republicans is dead and not coming back.

      Amoral Scumbag hardest hit.

      “Former Arizona Republican Senate candidate Jim Lamon stumped for Republican nominee Blake Masters in front of the Sun City West Republican Club on Saturday morning.

      Masters won the primary with 40.2 percent of the vote, with Lamon in second place with 28.1 percent, according to the Associated Press.

      “We all have to stand united,” Lamon said. “Just like Marxists do.”

      ”We might not all agree on everything, but we can all agree that our country needs us,” he continued.

      “I stand full square by Blake,” he added, and said he’ll be making a maximum donation to him.

      If the future of the Republican Party is working class individuals, can I get a waiver to stay in it? I do work 60+ hours per week and I never belonged to a country club.
