Walker Leads Warnock By 3% in GA

    Time for a clean thread and it comes in the form of a new poll from co/efficient that claims Herschel Walker is up by 3% on Raphael Warnock in the state of Georgia.

    US SENATE – GEORGIA (co/efficient)
    Herschel Walker (R) 47%
    Raphael Warnock (D-inc) 44%

    This poll was done October 24-25 among 946 likely voters.

      I hate mail in voting…and lazy a** voters don’t have a clue or care about the corruption involved.

    3. JeffP says:

      I hope OZ has a team of excellent lawyers in place. I think PA Woke Commie Dems are going to try and steal this thing.

      For those tired of obsessing over the Ukraine War, and the 2024 election, a great article in Powerline( a wonderful site with great links) entitled 3.8 Trillion for….what?
      The subject is the Green energy boondoggle, which has on net produced absolute zero for 3.8 Trillion Dollars on it’s own terms.
      Personally I think it has been a gigantic loss by choking off fossil fuel development, at catastrophic cost in economic and national security terms.
      But it hasn’t moved the needle at all in terms of “transitioning” in percentage terms to Green in the last 10 years.

      #AZSen moves back to Toss Up from Lean D after a spate of tightening private polling has alarmed Dems.

      The overall environment in AZ boosting GOPers, even weaker candidates like Masters

    6. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      This would be a pick-up in the House:


      4% undecided

    7. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      A new Suffolk/USA Poll shows:

      “On a generic ballot, one naming parties but not individual candidates, those surveyed now support the Republican congressional candidate over the Democratic one by 49%-45%, a turnaround since the USA TODAY poll taken in July, when Democrats led 44%-40%. The findings stoke GOP hopes of gaining control of the House of Representatives in the Nov. 8 elections, and with that, new powers to confront the Democratic White House.”

    8. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      Should we pay any mind to this new Franklin & Marshall Poll of Penn.? To wit:
      1- It is a Registered Voter Poll
      2- In the Governor’s race, Shapiro is +22. He was +10 in September.
      3- The poll was conducted over a two week span ending October 24th
      4- The PA CGB is R+5.
      5_ Fetterman leads by 4 over Oz(R).
      6- PredictIt has not moved on this poll.

      To answer my above question–Hell No.

    9. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      As an add-on, the last F&M Poll was Woke. If you remember, it listed 5 choices for gender!

    10. Phil says:

      Sheeple, I always like to look at the history of pollsters. In 2020 Franklin and Marshall consistently had Biden up in Pennsylvania 6-8 pts. Their last poll settled at 6. Biden won by 1.

      In 2016 F&M had Hillary up 11 in their final poll. As we all know, Hillary lost the state.

      Garbage in, garbage out.

      With yesterday’s NH poll, Hassan now moves into the RCP territory where she is polling in the range where there have been 13 wins and 3 losses. Remember no candidate since at least 2010 has lost when the RCP average was 48.9 or higher.

      Incumbent polling – wins/losses going to back to 2010
      43 – 44.9, 3 Wins and 6 Losses
      45 – 46.9, 7 Wins and 3 Losses
      47 – 48.9, 13 Wins and 3 Losses

      NV: Cortez-Masto 46.5
      AZ: Kelly 46.8
      GA: Warnock 47.0
      NH: Hassan 48.7 (was 49.3)
      IL: Duckworth 49.5
      CO: Bennet 49.5
      FL: Rubio 49.6
      WA: Murray 50.0
      WI: Johnson 50.8

      NY: Schumer 52.7

      Sen. Coons: Fetterman Debate “Was Hard To Watch,” “His Answers Were Halting And He Didn’t Understand The Issues”

    13. DW says:

      Rescue polls work. If it wasn’t for CNN and CBS\YouGov showing Johnson up only 1 in Wisconsin, RCP would color it light red and move it to Lean R, and with it show the GOP at 49 states.

      As it is, the ranking stays Tossup. Many simply look to RCP for the state of any race, and report on it as such.

    14. DW says:

      Another October surprise is that for many Americans who get their healthcare coverage through their employer, and that employer follows the standard calendar, right now is when they have their open enrollment and they are finding out right now how much the cost of healthcare is going to skyrocket starting January 2023.

    15. Phil says:

      Baris is in the field in Pa. He said on his podcast yesterday that he is asking two debate questions – did you watch the debate?… and who won?…and asking them AFTER he asks who the respondent is voting for. The man is a professional and didn’t want the debate questions to influence the important voter preference question…hence, asking the debate question last.

      I subscribe to his locals site. Late last night he had some VERY encouraging things to say about what he is seeing. I’ll share this much. He said a huge 53% watched the debate and Oz won the debate a little over 3–1. I won’t share his last comments on what he is saying about his first round of responses collected because it’s just a third of what will be his final sample. His podcast “What are the odds” will be on tonight and perhaps he will be inclined to publicly share what he shared with his Locals audience regarding how the poll is going for Oz.

    16. jason says:

      The cows have shown definite interest in my OZ sign.

      I would register them to vote except it is too late.

      Gertrude Stoltzfuss has shown the most interest, followed by Emma Stoltzfuss.

    17. Gordon Allen says:

      Obviously the ones who thought Fetterman won are Fetterman voters.

    18. Phil says:

      One last thing on Pennsylvania. We all know damn well Democrats have been furiously polling over the last 24 hours to determine the effects of the debate on the race. Should get a feel for what they are finding simply by their pitch today. Are they going to stick with the ridiculous Philly Inquirer Fetterman won that debate? If the polling shows that isn’t flying (which it won’t) will they continue to go with Fetterman is a victim, continue with the closed caption wasn’t working right, or pivot and go big with hinting that Fetterman will promise to resign and Shapiro will appoint another Democrat if voters will only vote Fetterman.

    19. Phil says:

      If that’s the case, Gordon then Fetterman is in big trouble since Baris’ early numbers are showing only 20% believe he won the debate.

    20. DW says:

      Phil, its shaping up to be Mrs. Fetterman. Remember a week or so back when Biden was with them he let slip that she was going to make a great senator.

      Biden was told the plan, but he was talking off script and let it out.

      So the message will be vote for Fetterman, and when he cannot continue, his courageous wife will take over the seat.

    21. DW says:

      Even Silver does not respect the Franklin/Marshall poll of PA. He posted the poll, and when the senate forecast updated for PA, nothing changed.

    22. Phil says:

      F&M isn’t a serios poll. 388 repondents? Margin of error +/-7? Even so, it’s way beyond even that.

    23. DW says:

      There is a Dem at RRH who is complaining that RCP doesn’t post all polls. They have not posted the F&M ‘poll’ of PA.

      Of course Silver posted it, and Silver posts a bunch of high-school kids who do a poll via phone texting. But Silver doesn’t post the highly reliable Big Data polls, because of his blood feud with Richard Baris.

    24. Phil says:

      No, he doesn’t post the reliable Big Data polls because they are accurate, and he dislikes the results.

      jason, it seems that Biden also called your cows, asking them to support Fetterman. That’s why they stand over your Oz signs moving their heads up and down.

    32. jason says:

      Tina, this is the best I could find.

      “The governor supports and intends to vote for Herschel Walker and the entire Republican ticket,” Tate Mitchell, Kemp’s spokesman, told the Washington Examiner. “Our campaign remains laser-focused on building the resources and the ground game necessary to deliver Republican wins up and down the ballot and bring hardworking Georgians relief from the disastrous Biden agenda that Stacey Abrams supports and Raphael Warnock has voted for 96% of the time.”

    33. jason says:

      However, the Lt. Governor is a Never Trumper who wrote an editorial against Walker. A real a-hole.

    34. DW says:

      Goes to show how incompetent Biden is. He calls these cows asking for support, and didn’t even realize they weren’t Jason’s cows.

    35. Tina says:

      I wish that hee haw would be more direct.

      The best thing the Mets did for the Phillies is own them so overwhelmingly in the early months of the season…so much so that they got their bad manager fired, and the new one made the difference.

      Hoover Dam?


      Are you going to Gold and Silver Pawn Shop to see if you can catch a glimpse of Pawn Stars like Rick Harrison or Chumlee?

    45. jason says:

      When in Vegas I never go outdoors. I stick to gambling tables, bars and buffets until its time to leave.

      Why would you want boring tours like Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon when you have beautiful cas-nos that have air conditioning, skimpily clad cocktail waitresses, free drinks, to die for buffets and gambling?

    46. jason says:

      Once I said wtf, I will sacrifice a few hours and play a round of golf at the Wynn.

      But then when they told me the green fee was $500. Plus I had to rent clubs and a golf cart.

      So not only was I losing money by not gambling, I had to shell out another $500+?

      No way in hell.

      So I headed back to the tables and lost $1000.

    47. SoHope says:

      Bitter, in 2 weeks we are going to Vegas. Going to do Grand Canyon while we are at it. Staying at Luxor. Going to live at the craps table and the GF probably slot machines.

      I just cut him another check. I know I said I am for DeSantis, but unfortunately he is actually on the ballot at the moment.

      I will support him after he is off the ballot, then of course once he is back on the ballot I won’t be able to do that.

      Liz Cheney has really turned into a loathsome creature.

      Sad because I think the R party needs people like her that are not isolationists and protectionists and understand the geopolitical role the US has and that its interests go far beyond its borders.

      She is consumed by such a hatred for Trump that she is aligning herself with people who in fact despise her even more than her former colleagues.

      Does she really think Slotkin, a far left moonbat, respects her? She will use the endorsement, and if she wins, she will go back to voting against everything Liz Cheney has professed to believe in her whole life. Privately she will say what every Dem is thinking, thanks for the support now GFY.

    65. jason says:

      The question is: does PA care if Fetterman’s brain is mush?”

      Dems won’t care. Not a single one. And there are like like 600k more registered Dems than Rs in PA (this is down from 2020, when it was 670k, and down from 2016 when it was 890k).

      So we need some Indies to care.

      An interesting stat. Since 2008, 536k Dems have switched registration to Republican, and 326k Rs have switched to Dem. Of course some of this could be just to vote for someone in a primary.

    66. DW says:

      SCHUMER TO BIDEN ON HOT MIC: “It looks like the debate didn’t hurt us too much in Pennsylvania…”

    77. Phil says:

      Tweet from Baris who is a day and a half into his Pennsylvania polling:

      “Without a doubt Fetterman has been damaged by his debate performance. I don’t care what most others claim to see, both campaigns acknowledge it and now I see why. Dr Oz is performing much better among voters with 4 year degrees, particularly with independents”

      I have two takeaways. One is that if Baris didn’t see a particularly strong trend here he wouldn’t be publicly tweeting this half way through his current polling. My second takeaway is that if Oz is doing significantly better with voters with 4 year degrees I imagine he is doing much better in the suburban counties like Montgomery and Delaware – counties he needs to cut into the Democratic margins in order to win statewide.

      I know some of you may get tired of me posting stuff from Richard Baris. If so, GFY. If the trolls can keep running up here with their joke polls from the likes of Quinnipiac and quotes from leftist hacks like Ralston, I can bring in information from the most accurate pollster out there for the last six years.

      MOSCOW (AP) — Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday denied having any intentions of using nuclear weapons in Ukraine but described the conflict there as part of alleged efforts by the West to secure its global domination, which he insisted are doomed to fail.

      Speaking at a conference of international foreign policy experts, Putin said it’s pointless for Russia to strike Ukraine with nuclear weapons.

      “We see no need for that,” Putin said. “There is no point in that, neither political, nor military.”

      Yeah, that’s right. I believe Robbie called him something along the lines of a Trump worshipping MAGA clown or words similar. As I recall, Robbie likes to use the term “clown” a lot. If Baris is a clown he’s a clown that knows how to poll based on his past record.

      Sean Patrick Maloney insults his own constituents:

      I would have to look, but I believe no Chair of either the DCCC or NRCC has ever lost, though the Republican running the NRCC barely scraped by in 2006 and subsequently retired. If Republicans take out Maloney, then that’s a sign of an earthquake rather than simply a tsunami.

    86. DW says:

      Woah! That insider advantage was mostly BEFORE the debate because it is dated the 25th–so most of the calls must have been before…some could have been during the debate. But wow! Baris is right again!

    87. Wes says:

      As of right now, I think Republicans hold all their seats with PA being the closest at ~4% for Oz.

      Meanwhile, I think Kelly (AZ) and Cortes Masto (NV) are doomed at this point. I’m conflicted on whether Walker and Warnock go to a runoff, but I expect Walker to win in that instance–or in an outright victory not needing a runoff. I say both Hassan (NH) and Bennet (CO) survive by closer than expected margins as does Murray (WA).

      Thus, I have the GOP going to 53-45-2 in the Senate. That would actually be a great night. Of course Republicans will be on offense in 2024 with the makeup of the Class 1 seats being 21D-10R-2I, so the GOP will only expand on its numbers then.

    88. DW says:

      Wes, I largely agree with your assessment. 53 is critical given Collins and Murky’s eagerness to reach across the aisle.

    89. Phil says:

      Agree with your R at 53, Wes. That seems the most likely. I expect you are exactly right on about Georgia and what happens in the event of a runoff. For one thing, the runoff is something like Dec 5th or so. That January 5th runoff last cycle was brutal for Republican turnout. The one prediction I disagree with you on is the closest race being Pa. I think Arizona will claim that distinction.

    90. Wes says:

      I wasn’t saying PA will be the closest race overall, Phil. I was saying it will be the closest GOP hold.

      ABSOLUTELY NOT! The GOP does NOT need more people like Liz Cheney. The party has moved on from the neo-cons, pushing democracy via invasions and wars so they can line their pockets.

      The GOP needs more politicians like Trump. I’m not talking personality, I’m talking common sense getting back to basics and not being the world’s ATM while balance foreign policy with the needs of everyday Americans who are suffering.

      The US should push and influence in world affairs but it should not have to lead them all. Ukraine is a perfect example where Europe should step up and lead in the effort because it’s in it own backyard.

      No more debacles like Iraq War 2 which was a miserable failure resulting in destroying a country’s infrastructure, exporting terrorism worldwide, and setting US diplomacy and trust back, to the point the US is not trusted on the world stage by most. The US has not recovered to this day from the Iraq War 2 failure and it’s used as an example to be thrown in our face anytime we try to push an agenda in foreign policy.

      The study cites details about the early spread of the SARS-COV-2 virus, which causes Covid; the fact that no animal host has been identified nearly three years into the pandemic; and troubled biosafety procedures at labs in the Chinese city of Wuhan to buttress its conclusion.”

The county is just under 60% of the statewide vote. Biden carried it by 2 points in 2020 and the state was essentially a tie. Baris said Kelly cannot seem to get past 47 there in the county. He said Masters has definitely taken the lead in Arizona. Apparently, from what I gathered, Baris is conducting a day by day tracking poll in Arizona through Election Day and isn’t going to release a standard two of three day poll.

      One of the points of contention Tuesday night during a debate between her husband and Republican candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz was how many mansions each man has and how they had afforded them.

      Gisele Fetterman’s comments were an attempt to contextualize why she and her husband own a mansion that Oz alleged Fetterman had received for a dollar. “And while we did not want the mansion, that mansion came with a pool I wanted. And the dream was to make this a public pool and turn it into the people’s pool and ensure that young people across Pennsylvania could learn how to swim and water safety and kind of work to right some of the wrongs,””

Yesterday the percentage saying Oz won the debate was 61%. Today it is 70% with less than 20% saying Fetterman. The 4 year college grads go for Fetterman by only two points. That is terrible for Democrats. Associate degrees or some college going for Oz by 15. High School or less going for Oz by almost 30.

      -Please define “isolationism” and “protectionism” for me.

      September/October 2020 saw Trump hosting Israel and Arab countries signing economic agreements.

      It saw the United States having a positive relationship with Russia, No Korea, while taking away their ability to cause mayhem.

      It saw Iran and Venezuela being isolated and weakened.

      It saw a world which was recognizing that China should not be trusted (we are once again seeing that after 2 years of Biden doing everything in his power to prop them up).

      It saw Trump warning NATO countries, most specifically Germany, NOT to depend on Russian energy sources.

      It saw Saudi Arabia becoming more open, while also allowing them to be more independent from us, which allowed us to step back and exert our power without having to use our military.

      Keep yapping about tariffs and the rest. The country club Republicans will repeat it for you, but we all see how soon they are forgotten. They are, and always will be, simply a bargaining position for Trump. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t, but in the end he will be looking to create more opportunities for commerce for American citizens…….which is what we want.

      -Please define “isolationism” and “protectionism” for me.”

      Damm, I have only done this, what, hundred of times.

      But, yeah, I realize NYC’s reading comprehension is worse than Fetterman’s, so no problem.

      Trump is a doctrinaire crony capitalist who has been an isolationist for 40 years. If you read his interviews over the decades it is one thing he is consistent on.

      A trade policy based on the failed 70 year old AFL-CIO agenda of stupid tariffs and trade wars is protectionist. Tariffs and trade wars are just another tax on American consumers and just another way you cede foreign trade opportunities to competing countries. If you want to tax your own consumers, tariffs are the most inefficient way to do it.

      A foreign polity based on the concept that your alliances are not in your own interest too leads to Trump’s asinine and self defeating attacks on NATO. Trump did have some foreign policy successes, I did support his overtures to N Korea and his intervention in Syria and against ISIS, but he should never promised to pull out completely from Afghanistan, that was a mistake that later led to the fall of the country and Biden’s disastrous pull-out. Trump’s understanding of America’s geopolitical role in the world was simplistic and sophomoric. That is why I call it isolationist.

      Hope it is clear now.

    152. jason says:

      Ah yes, the Abrams Accords ( I forgot what NYC called them, something stupid) were certainly a foreign policy achievement I give Trump credit for.

Trump only got to 39 in Allegheny County. Mastriano is running around 32 or so there. Same story in Philly. Mastriano running considerably worse than Oz. Oz doing ok in places like Delaware and Montgomery County for a Republican. Mastriano getting wiped out there. This all according to Baris’ current tracking numbers.

      Looking at NV. Dems are getting excited about their so-called fire wall. My analysis is that EV is way down in Clark county. You would think it would be tracking closer somewhere between the 2018 and 2020 numbers, since dems so embraced EV. It is not, its below 2018. Since most reps vote on election day, it seems to me that this indicates dem enthusiasm is way down. Assuming a fairly normal turnout for an off year election I think it will not be close. Particularly if you figure the independent vote will be more rep than in 2020 or 2018. Any thoughts??

      –Joe Biden and Traci Abrams hold a joint press conference on prime time T.V. to denounce racism 2.0

      Baris and Barnes last night on Nevada:

      They have Laxalt as 56% chance to win. Why this low? They say it will be the closest of Nv, Pa, Ga, and Arizona. To begin with – of those four states in 2020 it was Biden’s best state.

      1) Polls in Nevada tend to be a bit friendly to GOP because Nevada has a 6% Asian population that votes 65-35 Democratic and it’s hard for pollsters to reach. Baris didn’t poll the state in 2020. However, he did add that when he did poll it in 2016 he hit it right on the number at Hillary + 2.5….so there’s that. I think Baris currently has it at Laxalt just below +3

      2) Fraud. It’s the same corrupt system as 2020. Ballot harvesting is legal by third parties. Mail in ballots out to everyone. Barns lives in Vegas and practices law there. He said he has received four ballots in the mail so far. One for him and three others with names he’s never heard of. Laxalt will have to win outside the margin of fraud. Nevada is the most corrupt voting system in the US….more so than Pa.

      Walt said he and other state legislators at various times got death threats.

      They ALL survived Jadon’s vile hopes and are in their teen stage now and will reach full maturity in another month. From what I can see, at least 4 of them are male. I’ll have to wait a few more weeks to tell for certain.

      On top of that, I also have 5 new little babies that have “come out of the plants” and are joining the community swimming about. They’re sooooo tiny and cute, darting all around trying to hang with the big guys…and gals.

      So it looks like I’ve doubled my Endler family in a month with about 20 now. This could easily get to 75 in the next few months so I’m going to have separate the males and females into separate tanks soon.

      The cops “observed” this?

      House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul, was “violently assaulted” with a hammer in their San Francisco home early Friday morning by a man who was reportedly looking for her.

      At a press conference, San Francisco Police Chief William Scott said officers were dispatched to the Pelosi home at approximately 2:27 a.m. local time. When they arrived, they observed Paul Pelosi, 82, and the suspect, identified as David Depape, struggling to gain control over a hammer.

      “The suspect pulled the hammer away from Mr. Pelosi and violently assaulted him with it,” Scott said. “Our officers immediately tackled the suspect, disarmed him, took him into custody, requested emergency backup and rendered medical aid.”

    229. Cash Cow TM says:

      Walt is in a dither.

      Went to town to run errands.

      Go to sewer department to pay bill ($114 this month) and have them read outside meter because they give you a discount on how much water you use for fish pond, flower watering and lawn watering, car washing, etc., that does NOT go into the sewer.

      Like last year, I asked them: “what is the discount/gal. on documented water that does NOT go into the sewer” and got the same answer as last year.


      “Oh, we don’t know. There is some SORT OF SEWER discount.”


      ME: “Isn’t there an info sheet you can give me to tell me what the discount is?”
      [last year, they never told me the discount rate, only said it was a total of what was credited to the sewer bill.]

      Them: “NO. You can call us next week and we will let you know.”


      Then go to Wendy’s to get a single burger with just lettuce and mayo and I say “that is all.”

      Them: “Do you want to make that a meal?”

      ME: “No.”

      Them: “That will be $5.34. Pease pull up.”

      I pay, they give me my sack and I drive 5 miles home.

      Look for plumber’s tape for 15 minutes to use on water meter before I reinstall it to faucet and hose.
      Can’t find my roll of plumber’s tape.

      Then go in house to eat my Wendy’s sandwich and find NO SANDWICH!

      Instead I have a cup of CHILI!

      Eat a boiled egg, Lebanon balonga sandwich, half a banana and a piece of cherry pie instead of my missing Wendy burger.


      Now, have to go BACK TO TOWN to Wendy’s and get that part of the day straightened out.

      Electric power generation by Appalachian Power
      in WV:

      2,900 MW – John Amos Plant (Coal)
      1,320 MW – Mountaineer Plant (Coal)
      ..780 MW – Mitchel Plant (NatGas)
      ..665 MW – Darden Plant (NatGas)
      ..515 MW – Ceredo Plant (NatGas)
      ..101 MW – Beech Ridge (Wind)
      …81 MW – Brammwell (Hydro)
      …15 MW – Winfield (Hydro)
      …14 MW – London WV (Hydro)
      …14 MW – Marmet (Hydro)

      WV also has other electric generation by
      Allegheny Power, Potomac Edison and others.
      Their production stats would show the same type of thing regarding production by coal, NatGas, Hydro and wind.

      Big bulk is coal, then NatGas.
      And some more wind and hydro plants.
      One wind farm is owned by a power company in Florida. That company put in those 100+ wind towers due to fed regulations requiring X amount of investment by electric utility companies be spent on alternative energy sources.

      Whenever I drive by them, anywhere from 10% to 33% of the windmill on the towers are NOT turning.

      Sometimes due to low wind, sometimes due to the windmills SLOWLY unwinding the cables inside the towers due to the cables getting twisted. they also shut down if the wind speed is ABOVE a certain wind speed.

      As far as I know, none of the windmill towers in WV has yet caught fire–as has been true of windmill towers in other states.

      Environmentalists do not like windmills due to the detrimental effect on the viewshed, lots of birds fly into the towers and die, and the lifespan of the towers is about 25 years and there usually are not enough provisions put into the contracts to cover the cost of removing them if the power company chooses not to replace them when they become obsolete

      Congress needs to act NOW. We need to pass laws to protect our citizens – screw the ILLEGAL aliens, they can fend for themselves.

      I propose CongressIonal common sense legislation that should get bi-partisan support:

      Ban hammers sizes over 16 inches. They’re just not needed!
      Ban hatchets! There’s no reason for these killing tools.
      Minimum age requirement of 21 to purchase a hammer.
      Require a background check to purchase hammers.
      Flag hammer purchase without nail purchases to local authorities as a potential weapon.
      Have credit card companies flag codes for hammer purchases that can have that information reported to local authorities.
      Implement a national Red Flag law on hammers.
      Require a permit to carry or use a hammer in public.
      Ban the sale of hammers among private citizens.
      Create a national database of hammer owners.
      Ban hammers on public property, specifically schools and areas where children congregate.
      Limit the number of hammers an individual can own.
      Require hammers be securely stored to protect children from accessing them.
      Monitor social media and report instances of posters obsessed with hammers or posting pictures of themselves with hammers.

      I’m sure there are other common sense ideas to reduce hammer violence but this should be a start.

      Insider Paper

      BREAKING: The intruder who assaulted Speaker Pelosi’s husband tried to tie him up, CNN reports citing sources. When the police arrived, the assailant said he was “waiting for Nancy”

      – This is the future the MAGA morons want. Politics ruled by fear, intimidation, and violent retribution. The idiot who attacked Pelosi’s husband posted videos from Mike Lindell about a stolen election and frequently mentioned how good the January 6 riots were.

      This is Trumpism in its mature form. It’s gross and it’s nasty and it’s violent. It’s devoid of any substance. It’s just guttural and primal. The knuckle draggers and the mouth breathers who want more of Trumpism are the problem.

      Jason fraud and the rest of the circus clowns may want more Trump, but he’s a twice impeached loser who has created his own gang of violent idiots. They’re the ones who chanted “Hang Mike Pence” (and no, January 6 wasn’t just some pushing and shoving) and this idiot is cut from the same cloth.

      And before the usual suspects play their “what about” game (NYCmoron for one), Bernie Sanders was soundly rejected by Democrats in 2020 after one of his insane supporters tried to kill Scalise and many others. In Republican politics, this will somehow benefit Trump because so many idiots think violence is an effective solution.

      The intruder at the Pelosi home was a Berkeley anti-war nut. Nothing to do with MAGA voters.

    247. DW says:

      From the news story about the intruder:

      According to Mission Local Columnist Joe Eskenazi, “My sources also name the suspect in this morning’s hammer attack on Paul Pelosi as David DePape, born 1980, of Berkeley. He would appear to be a former Castro nudist protester. Things appear set to be bizarre for a while.”

      Not exactly the profile Robbie was hoping for.

    248. DW says:

      But I suppose Robbie’s arrival today is just in time to celebrate Walker taking the lead in the GA senate race. In fact, after RCP drops the old Insider Advantage poll for this new one, and if they drop the old ECU poll from the average, they might move GA Senate to Lean R.

    249. DW says:

      And there it is. Walker in lead. They kept the ECU poll in the average, so not Lean R yet.

      Elder abuse under penal code 368 pc comes in many forms and can be perpetrated by family members, friends, caretakers or nursing home facilities.

      This suggests that MAGA Hammer and Pelosi knew each other.

      3) The guy was involved in nudist group
      4) The guy was from Berkeley

      So if there was a political slant to the attack it was from the FAR, FAR left, and this was a battle in the civil war within the Democratic Party between the Far, Far Left (the attacker) and the far left (Pelosi).

    325. jason says:

      It doesn’t really matter what the guys politics are, he is obviously a kook.

      From what we know, he was not even armed, the hammer was not his. If he had been armed, of course the NRA would be blamed.

      For Amoral Scumbag to blame Trump or anybody else for what went on in this guy’s twisted mind is really despicable.

    326. jason says:

      Another thing, there is really no evidence this guy went there to kill Nancy or Paul Pelosi as claimed by the MSM. He was unarmed and obviously had spent some time there before and after the 911 call. Maybe the altercation was triggered by the arrival of the police. It stands to reason that if his motive was to kill Paul Pelosi he would have brought a weapon could have done it before the police arrived.

    327. DW says:

      There is something we need to keep in mind when we talk about some of these tight races in deep blue areas (NY, OR, NM Gov races for instance).

      When these unusual voting events happen–where old habits are broken up, there is always a shyness in the polling that leads up to it. People are very slow to admit that they are abandoning their usual practice (just thoughtlessly voting Dem), to vote out of the need to actually save their wallets, and vote R.

      We saw this in 2016, with the huge, unexpected shifts in PA, MI, and WI. The polling didn’t real show it coming, unless you listened to a new lone wolf pollster called Trafalgar Group.

      But now we are in 2022, and if there is another one of these realignment shifts, in much deeper blue territory, we would expect the polling shyness to be even stronger. Who would want to admit openly of such a shift in voting, especially with the fear of a weaponized social media and FBI.

      I remember one anecdote from 2016 shared on CNN election night coverage, where Jake Tapper talked about being in the Philly area, asking a guy at a bar how he was going to vote, and the guy was a leaner. A leaner? Tapper then explained how the guy leaned in close and whispered to him, I am going to vote for Trump.

      I sense there are a lot of leaners out there, voters who have seen 1/4 of their retirement savings vanish in just 2 years of Biden, who have seen the price of gas double, food prices skyrocket, and the party who did this only offering the solution of abortions, CRT, criminal rights, weak foreign policy, and the normalization of trannies.

      I am not predicting we will win all these deep blue state races, but it should not shock us if, for instance, Bolduc wins by a few points in NH or if the NM Governor race flips to the GOP. These states in particular do not have massive population centers that can adequately fire-wall against the rise of ‘leaners’ who will whisper their way into the booth and vote R, maybe for the first time.

      New York seems like a long shot. But there are enough leaners who have admitted to pollsters their shift to the point where Zeldin is polling close. Are there enough quiet leaners to put him over the top? We will know a week from Tuesday.

    328. DW says:

      Good points jason. Why bring nothing to a hammer fight? Then get the hammer from the victim to then try to kill him?

      This guy was a hard drug user, and homeless. He as about as far away from being a MAGA Trump supporter as you can get, yet Robbie fell for the story wish-casting that it was an opportunity to attack Trump.

    329. Tina says:

      The Sf police claim he entered through the rear door.

      I am sure someone “entered’through the rear door.

    330. jason says:

      Now they say when police knocked on door, someone opened it and let them in.


      POLITICO reported earlier Friday that Pelosi had been able to dial 911 after telling the intruder he had to use the restroom and then called from inside, where his phone had been charging.”

      It seems that there was no violence going on until the police showed up.

    331. Phil says:

      Not a bad post, DW. Not sure about NY but that one is now possible. A less blue state like Michigan could easily be in range. In fact, Baris said yesterday the Dixon surge is real and Whitmer is absolutely in trouble. He has not personally polled Michigan himself, but he pointed out that the history of public polling in Michigan has been about 6 pts too Democratic than on Election Day.

      One to watch.

    332. Tina says:

      The sf pd had two pressers. There are inconsistencies between the 1st and 2nd pressers.

      Maybe the 2nd is corrrect but they left several questions.

      Did he break in. How did he enter from the rear?

      Why did pelisi call for a welfare check

      Why was the intruder taken away in an ambulance (overdose?)

    333. BayernFan says:

      I bet entering from the rear started the fight.

      GOP ads make Joe Biden every Dem’s running mate.

    335. Wes says:

      That RCP article is strictly a rally-the-troops article offering false hope for Beasley supporters.

      NC-Sen may have been tightly contested before Budd started matching Beasley in the ad wars, but that ended months ago. Democrats haven’t invested here despite Beasley’s admittedly spirited campaign because they have to invest in their own vulnerable seats elsewhere and can’t afford to transfer money to a longshot Senate race in a state Biden couldn’t carry.

      Beasley loses. Jimmy Ervin loses. Republicans regain the NCSC and restore sanity to Tarheel judicial politics. It won’t be all that late a night here.

      Democrats grouse about the results and claim NC will flip next time.

      I’ve seen it all before. It will be no different this time.

    336. DW says:

      It was good of Bitter to travel all the way out there for a first-hand report.

      Congrats on the Phillies winning the World Series. No way the Astros can recover from that meltdown.

    337. GF says:

      “I bet entering from the rear started the fight.”

      Yeah, you usually have to get permission for that; just casually slipping in and pretending it was an accident won’t cut it.

    338. GF says:


      I didn’t watch or listen to the game, just flew in from Pearl Harbor and was tuckered out. However, I just saw the box score, that was an impressive comeback.

      Superior pitching wins the day, the Padres would have been steamrolled.

    339. Wes says:

      Pelosi’s attacker “entered through the rear door,” huh?

      Maybe if Pelosi had been more careful about whom he let enter that particular aperture, this wouldn’t have happened.

    340. Phil says:

      Astros hit Phillies in the mouth…and Phillies took the shot and hit them right back. Astros with their pitching weren’t used to that. Frankly, I laughed at all the post Astros sweep of the Yankees media adulation of the Astros….like they were somehow the reincarnation of the ‘27 Yankees. It was laughable. If you look at the Astros lineup there are a lot of outs in it. Overrated team outside of their pitching.

    341. Bitterlaw says:

      DW – The Phillies are usually the team that blows a lead in terrible fashion. This team is never out of it. Their first playoff game against the Cardinals they were down 0-2 in the 9th. They responded by scoring 6 runs.

      They take their cue from Bryce “we ain’t losing” Harper and JT Realmuto. JT was interviewed last night after his game running HR in the 10th “We are in every game until we run out of outs.”

      One game at a time.

    342. DW says:

      There are past examples where the World Series was won in game 1. 1988 when Kirk Gibson hit that walk off homer against Eckersley, that ended the Series. It was over. The only at bat by the hobbled Gibson.

      That’s what happened last night. I blame the Mets for letting the Phillies get this far. If the Mets had stunk earlier in the season against the Phillies, then Joe Gerardi would not have been fired, and they wouldn’t have had the managing to get to the World Series.

      Amoral Scumbag hardest hit.

      “The Man Who Attacked Paul Pelosi Is a ‘Psychotic, Homeless Addict’ With No Discernible Political Agenda

      Neighbors described DePape as a homeless addict with a politics that was, until recently, left-wing, but of secondary importance to his psychotic and paranoid behavior. “What I know about the family is that they’re very radical activists,” said one of DePape’s neighbors, a woman who only gave her first name, Trish. “They seem very left. They are all about the Black Lives Matter movement. Gay pride. But they’re very detached from reality. They have called the cops on several of the neighbors, including us, claiming that we are plotting against them. It’s really weird to see that they are willing to be so aggressive toward somebody else who is also a lefty.”

    348. jason says:

      Shameless Dem hack Ralston is really spinning hard.’

      “All of these numbers have gotten better for the GOP since I last modeled because of the addition of the rural numbers. If the Dems are losing bits of their base to the GOP or None of the Above, it’s probably game over. It’s harder to tell in a non-presidential year because of ticket-splitters and tribalism is not quite as easy to predict.

      But smart Dems have said to me all along that if they don’t turn out their base – as they did in 2018 – they are going to be wave-vulnerable. It doesn’t look like that yet, but we have mails to go…

      I always hear talk about this time about Ds cannibalizing their vote and the Rs saving their high-propensity voters for Election Day. That may well be true, but it has rarely happened in the past that Election Day has overcome whatever the two-week period indicated. It was only 11 percent of the vote in 2020 and it is usually only about a third of the vote. (Dems won Election Day in 2018, but again, Trump was president.) Could this year be different?

      Bottom line: I think the Dems have reason to be happy because these do not look at all like red wave numbers after a week. But Repubs also must be content that after a week, the mail is not as voluminous as 2020 and the Dem margins also are not as great. That is: It’s close.”

Silver claims to work off statistics and polls but he gives the usual lousy polls that miss every election in the same direction more validity despite their year in year out embarrassingly inaccurate polling results. His prediction numbers on each race are not based on anything concrete whatsoever. Anyone who bet on the Senate races according to Silver’s predictions in the summer, Sept, or early October would be losing their ass right now. Hell, if you bet on Pennsylvania and Arizona according to Silver’s current predictive percentages you are making a mistake. Same with his numbers on the Wisconsin and Michigan governors’ races.

      Baris is a pollster, the best in the business with the track record to prove it. He has conservative views and doesn’t hide them, but he separates those views from his polling….just look at his record.

    357. DW says:

      Spot on Phil. And Silver refuses to post Baris’ polls, even though it would help his statistics get closer to the actual results. Silver would rather be wrong without Baris, than be right, with him.

    358. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Leftists at Axios cannot realize that: 1+1=2

      “Consent decrees: Federal court-ordered settlement agreements between cities and the Justice Department have compelled 40+ police departments to change practices since 1994.

      Reality check: A majority of police agencies that entered into consent decrees in the last 10 years saw violent crime rates skyrocket immediately, according to an Axios examination. The reasons for those increases are not known.”

    359. Tina says:

      Don’t worry.

      The fib is now “handling” Maga Hammer.

    360. Tina says:

      I wonder if Pelosi drugged Maga hammer?

      Something is not adding up.

      The glass to the rear door was broken from the inside out. I see no way that the guy entered from the rear of the home.

      Seems like a lovers quarrel gone bad.

    361. Phil says:

      Baris has been all over Silver over the last six years and it’s clearly made a mark. Not only has Nate refused to include any of Baris’ polls despite their clear accuracy, he has blocked any of his comments on his 538 twitter.

      Real Clear Politics has decided to initiate the Polling Accountability Project this cycle and will be publishing the results based on accuracy right after the election. The polls will be ranked according to how they did. A bunch of Silver’s pet leftist pollsters are going to publicly look like the fools and hacks that they are. It will all be published and out in the open for all to see. Naturally Nate is not happy about this as it will further expose his lack of credibility. Silver has made a good living with his fraud site and Baris is a threat to his gravy train.

    362. DW says:

      Phil, that’s good to hear. All it takes is a college freshman in Mathematics and good excel sheet. Not rocket science. I did this after the 2020 election, based on the pollsters who polled the POTUS race by states. Here is what Excel spit out based on actual results compared to the polling forecasts, always based on the final poll. (Pollster / number of polls / Letter grade:

      BTW, Baris has finished up his Pennsylvania poll. Waiting for him to release it.

    365. Phil says:

      Baris Pennsylvania Big Data Poll release.

      Oz leads 48.4 to 46.2

      Shapiro leads 48.6 to 44.3

    366. Jeff G. says:

      Phil, you forgot the “Boom!”

    367. Phil says:

      Baris comment on the governors race:

      Mastroianni would have a good chance if he wasn’t losing Republicans. Shapiro should send a Christmas card to Karl Rove.

    368. Jan says:

      Seems like a lovers quarrel gone bad.


    369. Cash Cow TM says:

      Where did Paladin pollster come in regarding the ratings?

    370. Phil says:

      They didn’t include fantasy polls.

    371. Gordon Allen says:

      After that debate I’m actually disappointed Oz is up only 2 + points; thought it would balloon to 4 or 5.
      The GOP looks like it will possibly blow a chance at winning the PA Governorship.

    372. Wes says:

      Alternately, Phil, Mastriano would have a good chance had he taken the race seriously early on and laid the groundwork for an eventual victory.

      Do you really think Mastriano should have publicly stopped his campaign to announce fasting and prayer? Baris can blame it on other people all he wants, but Mastriano is the one running the tone-deaf campaign.

      Notice Oz changed his early tactics and started running a better campaign. The dividends of that have been apparent. Of course Shapiro is a stronger candidate than Fetterman. While that’s certainly been a factor, Baris should maybe factor Mastriano’s own deficiencies as a candidate in before blaming the voters.

    373. Phil says:

      Fine and dandy, Wes. Now explain to me the Republican Governor’s funding decision not to send a single dollar to Mastiano….and then explain Karl Rove’s multi million dollar ad campaign directly aiding Shapiro. (I can explain it) The Republican establishment hates Trump with a passion…the Bush family, Rove, McConnell, and the entire DC Republican establishment. Sorry, they don’t get a pass from me nor should they.

      Shapiro spent 33 million to Mastriano’s 2.5 million to accumulate a 4 point lead.

    374. Wes says:

      The RGA spends money on candidates it thinks can win. Rove didn’t start his ad campaign using reverse psychology to try to get voters supporting Shapiro to vote for Oz till a week or so ago. Mastriano had been trailing for months at that point.

      I’m sorry, but Democrats knew Mastriano would be a weak candidate and poured millions into the primary to get him nominated. He did exactly what they were hoping for.

      That’s not the fault of Karl Rove, Mitch McConnell, or anyone else other than Doug Mastriano. Baris sounds like the people who abandoned Christine O’Donnell because her race would have given them no return on their money.

      Sometimes it’s about candidate quality. Baris is a poor candidate going up against a good opponent. That’s just the reality of the situation. It’s his fault and no one else’s.

    375. JeffP says:

      Baris has four strengths.

      1. Objective
      2. Outstanding data evaluation.
      3. Great Pollster & analysis.
      4. Knowledgeable of historic trends and changing electorate.

      I can listen to his show for hours and enjoy every minute.

    376. Phil says:

      …..and what about NH and Masters? Was that about candidate quality too? Nope. Since they are running even that dog won’t hunt. They didn’t kiss Mitch’s foot.


    377. Bitterlaw says:

      Any of the GOP primary candidates EXCEPT Mastriano had a good chance of beating Shapiro. The Dems funded Mastriano. That tells the story.

    378. Wes says:

      Mastriano couldn’t even get GOP-friendly union endorsements at the same time as Oz did. His entire campaign radiates an inability to appeal to enough voters to win.

      I’m sorry, but while Baris is going to blame everyone but Mastriano, I’m not going to give him a pass on a weak campaign when other candidates such as Oz, Walker, and even Masters have overcome initial questions about their viability and become either competitive or favorites in their races.

      This has nothing to do with Trump. It’s all about Mastriano and his inability to craft a winning campaign strategy much as Baris wants to play political legerdemain and blame the voters. Knowing a Mastriano-friendly pollster is blaming them for Mastriano’s losing should go over exceptionally well with voters in 10 days.

    379. Phil says:

      ….and I suppose it was Bolduc’s fault and no one else’s that his money was cut off.

    380. Wes says:

      Meanwhile Herbert Walker and Ted Budd were two of Trump’s most high-profile endorsements in the primaries. McConnell has never backed down from supporting either.

      You’re right. Your contention that Republicans base all their funding decisions on whether or not Trump supports someone doesn’t hunt.

    381. Wes says:

      Meanwhile, I suppose McConnell hates J. D. Vance so much he had SLF pour money into Ohio.

      We can go back and forth like this all night if you like. The reality is that Mastriano is not a good candidate is seeing the results of being a bad candidate.

    382. Phil says:

      You’re right about Master’s overcoming

      In spite of McConnell. That money was sent to Murkowski. God that pissed me off.

    383. Bitterlaw says:

      I hope Mastriano wins. I don’t think he will. Both can be true.

    384. Phil says:

      Sorry Wes. He needs Vance to get to 51. Don’t kid yourself.

    385. Phil says:

      Now explain McConnell on Masters and Boldac.

    386. Wes says:

      I noticed you overlooked the other three candidates I mentioned, Phil.

      Don’t kid yourself. If Mastriano actually had a chance, the RGA–which Mitch McConnell has exactly to do with–would be in PA in a second. They see much better chances in several other states;ergo, Mastriano doesn’t get any backing just as Tom Corbett didn’t despite being an incumbent in 2014.

    387. Wes says:

      Oh, easy to explain. They went out of their way to make an enemy and got one. Same thing happened with Kelly Tshibaka in AK.

      Maybe in the midst of a campaign, candidates in competitive races shouldn’t try their best to make enemies on their own side. It only complicates their election prospects.

    388. Phil says:

      Walker and Budd? Again you have to get to 51. Now, once again explain NH and Arizona.

      You can’t.

    389. Wes says:

      Honest question, Phil.

      Do you think Baris helped Mastriano in any way by blaming the voters?

      I’m going to come out and say I don’t.

    390. Wes says:

      I literally explained it in 392, Phil.

      Go back and read it.

    391. Phil says:

      The enemy is the Democratic Party, Wes. Be nice if Mitch understood that. That’s the problem with Mitch and the rest of his establishment crew.

    392. Wes says:

      It’d also be nice if Masters and Bolduc knew that, Phil. They decided McConnell was their enemy first and fired the opening salvo.

      Had they not started it, McConnell wouldn’t have had a reason to send money elsewhere besides to them.

    393. Phil says:

      Money diverted to Murkowski from Arizona.

      If you don’t understand what’s wrong with that picture then I give up.

    394. Wes says:

      Tshibaka picked a fight when she needed party unity. Masters and Bolduc did the same.

      Maybe don’t do that when dealing with the gatekeeper for the second biggest source of funding for GOP Senate candidates.

      There’s an old saying:

      Don’t bite the hand that feeds you.

      Masters, Bolduc, and Tshibaka should maybe take that sage advice to heart.

    395. Wes says:

      Notice Walker, Budd, Oz, and Vance never decided to pick a preemptive fight with McConnell. They’re not hurting for money.

      I am curious though about why you want McConnell to back these candidates so hard when you hate him. You should be demanding he stay as far away from them as possible since he’s such a despicable human being.

    396. Skippy says:


      Murray 49.4%
      Smiley 48.2%

      Coming down to the wire in Washington!

    397. Wes says:

      I’ll believe Smiley can overcome the influence of the woke hipsters in Seattle on Evergreen State politics when I see it, Skippy.

    398. Phil says:

      Candidates supposed to pledge loyalty to Mitch…but Mitch shouldn’t pledge loyalty to the party. Got it. Schumer has to love that.

      Kind of a one way street isn’t it?

      The enemy is the Democratic Party,Wes.

    399. Wes says:

      Who said anything about pledging loyalty, Phil?

      That’s a strawman argument, Phil. They could have been silent on the issue altogether. That would have given McConnell no excuse to have spending priorities elsewhere. They chose to open their mouths and are suffering the consequences.

      I’m not going to cry because a bunch of rookie candidates assumed making unnecessary enemies wouldn’t negatively affect their electoral prospects.

      As I noted, Vance, Oz, Budd, and Walker chose to say nothing on the issue. They’re getting money. It couldn’t be clearer.

      Don’t make unnecessary enemies if you actually want to win an election.

    400. Wes says:

      Your argument that the Democrats are the enemy would hold weight if Masters, Bolduc, and Tshibaka hadn’t declared McConnell to be their enemy rather than Chuck Schumer.

      You conveniently ignore the fact that THEY fired the opening salvo. McConnell did not. He simply reacted.

    401. Wes says:

      Here’s your argument, Phil:

      I can attack you whenever I want, but when you return fire, you’re at fault.

      Sorry. That’s not how the real world works.

      Luckily Masters has overcome that faux pas. It looks as if Bolduc and Tshibaka will not.

    402. Ameister says:

      I see all the national senate race discussions tilted towards mconnel. Rick scott is running the GOP senate campaign nationally.
      He built a ground up winning block in Florida without a lot of
      Fanfare that got him the Governorship and took out
      A solid incumbent in Bill Nelson. It will be interesting to
      See if he can do the same in some of these battlegrounds.
      He most certainly didn’t get elected on charisma.
      Fyi Desants used his infrastructure in his election as well

    403. Wes says:

      I like how Mitch McConnell is supposed to be the punching bag for multiple Senate candidates but then has to send them money.

      That’s more than a little hypocritical.

      If you want McConnell to fund your campaign, don’t attack him during the campaign. It’s not that hard. If you have a problem with him, wait to hash it out after you’ve declared victory.

    404. Tina says:

      Scott is doing well

      Mitchie quit in July. He has been a train wreck.

      Another civil rights victory against ableism. Fetterman’s wife will be pleased:

      “MIRAMAR, FL — Spirit Airlines has hammered yet another nail into the coffin of ableism by hiring the world’s first blind commercial airline pilot. Flight 2047 from Orlando to Saint Louis is set to be the first vision-impaired flight. The co-pilot will reportedly wear a blindfold for the duration of the flight out of solidarity with its blind captain.

      According to sources, Isaac “Fuselage” Bartimaeus dreamed of being a pilot ever since someone described to him what planes look like. The rookie pilot, who has been blind since birth, earned a pilot’s license after spending two years studying theoretical flight. Due to his condition, he was not permitted to fly a plane as part of his schooling. Spirit Airlines waived the requisite 1,500 hours of flight time as a way of accommodating his disability.”

      Actually, in a way this is true. If you vote Republican, and there is enough fraud such that the Republican won on valid ballots but the Democrat is put into office instead, based on the additional count of invalid ballots, then the fraud will be codified and here forever and you will never cast a ballot again in an honest election.

      Bitter, I didn’t say the Phillies would win in four games, just that a team does not recover from losing an opener that way.

      Remember even in Game 7 in 1986, the Boston Red Sox took an early 3-0 lead in that game, after having blown game six. It didn’t matter the Mets came back and won.

      In my opinion, to win that game six, and then game seven, the Mets received in exchange the curse of the Bambino, and that is why they have never won again, while the Red Sox have.

    430. Phil says:

      Walker has the lead in Pennsylvania for sure now. Not a huge lead but big enough. Walker is going to win in Georgia. The only question is whether he wins it outright or in a runoff. That means Republicans will get at least 51 Senate seats.

      That Quinnipiac poll last week showing Fetterman up in Pa 52-46 was such a fricken joke and I said so at the time. That is the same outfit that had Biden winning Pa by 7 in 2020 (he won it by 1). Watch Quinnipiac herd now to the margin of error to keep from getting entirely embarrassed. It’s what Silver’s pet media and university polls do. Bogus BS polls to try and suppress Republican vote and fund raising. They don’t attempt to measure public opinion. They attempt to influence it.

      I find it unlikely that Democrats sweep the remaining seats of Arizona, Nevada, and NH although don’t look for McConnell to lift a finger in NH or Arizona. Believe me, he doesn’t want Masters or Boldac in his caucus. For that matter he doesn’t want Vance or Walker but he needs them to get to 51.

      I say Republicans get 52 Senate seats in the end.

      He was to busy regurgitating MSNBC talking points that Mike Lindell and Trump were responsible for the attack on Paul Pelosi.

    451. jason says:

      Ralston hack seems worried.

      “Douglas, the second largest rural county by voters, had a huge turnout that I did not have — 8,000 voters and 2 to 1 R. That added 2,000 ballots to the R lead in the rurals and made the projected lead with Trump margins up to 15,000 so far in the rurals.

      If that projection is correct, the Dem statewide lead is only 6,500, or 2.1 percent; the actual lead with the rural numbers is 3.3 percent, still slightly above the Dem reg lead of 2.7 percent.

      Remember, we don’t know how many ticket-splitters at the top there are this time, and we don’t know how pervasive tribalism will be down the ticket. We also don’t know how the indies will break, which is the key to everything. If they are going single digits for the GOP, some Dems could hang on. But if they are double digits, I see a lot of red people.”

    452. jason says:

      So the Dem lead (meaning Dem ballots returned vs R ballots returned) is 6500, but that doesn’t account for a probably GOP advantage among Indies and the fact Hispanic Dems might be voting GOP.

      I just received a fundraising e-mail from Marco Rubio. If I thought he needed it I’d send him money. As it stands, I’m making contributions elsewhere.

      I might actually do that if I see another poll showing Bolduc competitive with Hassan, Phil.

      I absolutely despise her and honestly hope Bolduc beats her.

    458. jason says:

      You are right to worry. I think Rs need a 30k cushion in NV and 80k cushion in PA to overcome potential illegal mail in ballots.

      That is roughly the margins Trump lost by in 2020.

      I have a friend who is registered as a Dem. She voted for Shapiro and Oz mail in. Two people have showed up at her house already to “collect” her mail in ballot to make sure she voted. They had access to the SOS database that shows which Demsrequested ballots.

      So the Dems are making sure anyone who is registered as a Dem and requested ballots is voting. Hopefully Rs are doing the same.

    459. jason says:

      Send the money to Boldac.”

      They might not allow Bolduc to cash the check. Send it to Bolduc.

      “Good morning from the best state of all, everyone.

    463. jason says:

      If Ralston thinks the only hope for Dems is that Indies split down the middle the Dems are probably screwed.

      “The ballot lead is about 10,000, so you can see the margin for error is steadily decreasing for the Dems, which should make the GOP happy. If you take into account that the actual rural vote lead is 50 percent higher than the ballot lead – that would be following Trump’s pattern in 2020, a best-case for GOP – then the Dems need indies in urban Nevada to be evenly divided or go their way or some (many?) of their candidates will lose. It’s really that simple, unless there is massive base hemorrhaging on either side.”

    464. jason says:

      I doubt there will be massive base hemorrhaging on the R side.

Was he walking down the street in his underwear carrying just a hammer? Did people ignore him because they thought maybe he was just Thor out for a late stroll?

      Transportation in SF does not run all nights in most areas, especially getting to the desirable neighborhoods so how did he get from Berkeley to that area of SF, about 10+ miles without being noticed or freezing? Did his testicles retract in his body in the cold?

      2022 Washington Senate General Poll

      Tiffany Smiley (R): 46% (=)
      Patty Murray (D-inc): 46%

      That NRSC poll confirms what Trafalgar revealed last night.

      Wes, I agree, for now, about WA. No incumbents have lost when their RCP average was over 48.8. And even when the average is between 47 and 48.8, incumbents are 13 and 3 going back to 2010. So I won’t be getting my hopes up until I see Murray getting well under 49, and it’s still a long shot

      What happened to EML btw?
      I was demoralized by the NY special election failures, the constant MSM Democrat cheerleading, and the overall bad looking polls. I have been unplugged from politics since August. What plugged me back in was when a friend said to me, Did you see the Fetterman debate? Now I’m back, baby. At least for the next 10 days.

      The wheels are falling off for Democrats at just the wrong time. Although, I somewhat suspect that this has been the state of the election the entire time and that Democrats and their media allies have been lying about it all along, just as they have been lying about Fetterman’s mental faculties.

      Moving money from Val Demings in Florida to Patty Murray in Washington is a huge tell on the state of play. Equally telling is that seats like PA-12, NY-25, and CA-26 are quietly entering the realm of possibility. The battleground is not Florida or Georgia or even Pennsylvania. The battleground is Washington, Oregon, California, and New York. The good guys need to close this out.

      It is possible the Dems will have to divert resources to save Murray, Bennett and Hassan. They are probably wondering when to pull the plug on Fetterman and Warnock. I doubt they would give up on Kelly.

      By the same token, Rs will have to decide whether you nail down the majority or go for the gusto and try for 54+ seats.

      Their are inherent risks for both parties.

      Personally, I would concentrate on Laxalt, Walker, Oz and Masters. You hate to leave seats on the table but you cannot risk leaving the Senate in Dem hands because of the damage that will do to the judiciary.

    489. Wes says:

      Political waves don’t necessarily hit everything, Gordon. The Pacific Coast was the biggest disappointment for the GOP in both 2010 and 2014 for example.

      Smiley is a good candidate who in a less reflexively liberal state would probably be well on her way to the Senate. Unfortunately the state is Washington, and Seattle is full of high-turnout wokesters who are now fully aware Murray may be in trouble.

      For that reason, I expect Smiley to give the Republicans their strongest showing in an Evergreen State Senate race since 2000 but still lose to Murray.

    490. GF says:

      I’m not too concerned about whether Smiley wins or loses – if he wins, we are talking 55-56 seats in the Senate. But the shift in resources is certainly an interesting development.

      Someone on RRH made a really good point. In 2020, Trump won non-college educated whites nationwide by 35 points. Some voters did not get this memo, most notably in Washington (Biden won this group by 5), Oregon (Biden +2), and Colorado (Trump +3). [I believe WA and OR to be the only states where Biden won non college whites]. If they got the memo for this election, there could be a huge swing toward the GOP. This is also a group that isn’t heavily politically engaged, which could explain why Murray cruised in the primary, but the race has tightened – this group doesn’t vote in primaries but will come out for the general.

      I actually think Smiley can run marginally better than Dino, GF. If not, she’ll match his showing. Regardless, I just don’t see how Smiley puts together a big enough coalition to oust Murray–much as I’d love to see it.

      For those following the Brazil election, I read that early results will tend to come in from the southern part of the country where Bolsonaro is strongest, so don’t take too much comfort in any early leads. He apparently led in the 1st round until about 70% of the votes had been tallied.

      The left is slowly winning and if all keeps trending as is, in 20 years, the US will become Berkeley, and all those other things won’t matter.

      The radical left, especially radical leftist women and the gay male community are NOW our biggest threats as they are the ones most aligned in supporting acceptance of radical behaviors.

      Just 5 years ago, who would think that normalizing pedophilia, transition surgeries for young teens, teaching young grade schoolers to masturbate, or having sexually deviant drag queens perform for kindergarten kids would happen?

      Look for the radical left to continue to push this normalization on children. My guess is the majority of gay men would gladly accept relationships between adult men and teens again, as was a common practice for decades before the AIDS epidemic.

      I am praying this election is won 1st and foremost at the local levels to stop this radicalization in schools and protect the children from all these forms of destructive radical behaviors.

The GOP is becoming a working class multi race party with more leaders now than six years ago. This movement will continue regardless. He will win the primary if and when he runs (just think debates will be happening a year from now). I am sure Trump will make it all about him though as he sucks the air out of any room for good or bad. He will go down as a Reagan like influence in GOP history. Any coming indictment will only solidify the cultural and political change he brought.

      Of course not. The “Youngkin did better” is complete BS, a governor’s off years race with completely different dynamics. Youngkin won because he got Trump endorsement and a massive vote in red counties AND was able to siphon off some suburban votes due to the education issue and McCawful’s “parents should not have a say in education”.

      DeSantis is a great candidate, but he will only be competitive and win if Rs can hang on to the inroads Trump made with working class voters as well as with Hispanics and black males.

      But if you have TDS and think that by disparaging Trump’s coalition it helps Rs win elections in the future, you are a moron.

    556. jason says:

      Transportation Secretary Pete is a walking non-entity. Can anyone remember a speech he has given? Or anything he has done? His first act as Secretary of Transportation was to go on a long maternity leave.

      I don’t know who Roy Cooper is? Isn’t he from someplace like Kentucky? Is he related to the guy who jumped out of the airplane?What are the qualifications for bringing him out of obscurity to run for President?

      The reason in 2020 the Democrats brought the already mentally cloudy Biden out of Shady Acres to run is because they had no one else.

      I can’t wait to see the infighting in the party when the debate is Kamala, an AA woman is not up to the job so let’s get a white guy who has had no successes to do the job instead.

      Agreed! As I stated numerous times, Trump made a personal connection with working class voters that no GOP president has done since Reagan.

      These voters trust Trump and are loyal to HIM because he went to bat for them. He delivered for them. He stood up for them. DeSantis has not earned that trust of those voters in MI, WI, and PA at this time.

      Taking for granted they’ll just turn out with DeSantis without major outreach by his team and developing trust is naive. They’ll just not vote if they don’t feel the connection and then those states will not go into the GOP column and that will make it nearly impossible for the GOP to win the EC without major shifts to the GOP in other areas of voting demographics.

      Phil. On that your wrong. DeSantis will and is running for a host of reasons.
      And will win.
      We don’t have a ” divine right ” of Kings Kings”,or hereditary inheritance to office here.
      I find it offensive really that some think Trump is ” entitled “.
      I can say this as someone who supported him as President strongly.
      I no longer do.

    577. Gordon Allen says:

      This is so silly.Trump didn’t have this connection to working class voters in Michigan, PA in 2014 when he was just a TV personality,and Billionaire real estate developer.
      It is now 2014.
      You ” earn” that connection by campaigning there.
      Good lord. This should be obvious.
      And by delivering in office.
      This mystical belief in Trumps sole and unique ability alone to ability to get working class votes is completely unfounded.
      Candidates simply have to convincingly reach out to them.
      The Rodney’s, and McCain types never tried. That’s all.

    578. Phil says:

      I like DeSantis as a governor. I believe he has a chance to be President some day. I don’t think Trump has a “Devine right” to anything. I DO believe he will have to work to get working class votes in the Midwest. They won’t flock to him automatically. Right now if DeSantis ran in the primaries he would carry the college educated Republican voters over Trump narrowly but lose the working class overwhelmingly.

      Again, I like DeSantis. I absolutely LOVE Kari Lake. In the same mold as Trump and DeSantis with regards to playing offense and not backing down to the MSM. Unlike the typical establishment Republican afraid of his or her own shadow and scared of what the MSM might say, all three stand up. They have some guts.

      Nevada– 47/47 between CCM(D) and Laxalt(R)
      Pennsylvania– 49/44 Fetterwoman(D) over Oz(44)

      Last week, Cohn did likewise with four(4) Congressional seats and the results were similar—A BLUE WAVE!!!

    580. Phil says:

      Candidates simply have to reach out to them (working class voters)

      I couldn’t agree more, but I want to see it first. You are right about Romney and McCain. They didn’t reach out. Want to know why? It was because they looked down their nose at them ala Robbie, our favorite poster. A lot of establishment types in the Republican Party do that. Working class voters aren’t stupid. They see it.

      Neville Allen is really king of the simplistic, sophomoric and superficial analysis. I wonder if he read that garbage in a magazine.

      All it takes is “trying”? None of the R candidates ever tried to win WI, PA, and MI?

      Trump won because he had the right message.

      Neville Allen says there is no “inherited right to office”. He is right. But by the same token, there is no inherited right to the working class vote.

      If DeSantis wants to make the same inroads that Trump did in OH, PA, WI, and MI then he will have to earn it.

      As Phil says, at the moment there is evidence he has done so.

    588. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      So if today’s Upshot polls have any merit, the GOP has a better shot in WA State than in PA and AZ. Absurd!

      I’ll stick with Baris’ numbers. Go with the track record.

      Take Pennsylvania for instance.

      In 2016, Baris’ final poll had Trump carrying Pa by 1

      Trump carried Pa by 1

      In 2020, Baris final poll had Biden carrying Pa by 1

      Biden carried Pa by 1

      He now his numbers say Oz is up 2.2

      That’s all I need. If he’s wrong he’s wrong….but based on the track record who you going to believe? Him or outfits like Siena or Quinnipiac.

      2) Provide an alternative to Trafalgar and Big Data so that other pollsters can herd to NYTimes poll instead. Its all about the expected breakdown of the electorate. They are trying to convince other pollsters to see a 2018 turnout that is heavy D.

      Oh, but Baris is a rightwing hack. He’s biased. He’s a MAGA clown as Robbie likes to say.

      A little history. He polled the Senate Georgia runoffs. This biased MAGA clown’s final numbers showed both Purdue down to Osoff and Kelli Loeffler down to Warnock by identical 47-44 numbers. Does that sound biased? He said just before the runoff that Purdue and Loeffler had no chance based on his polling. Purdue lost by 1.5 and Loeffler lost by 2. If anything, he slightly overestimated the Democratic margin by a point or so. The guy has his political views but he keeps them separate from his polling results. He likes to get it right and has every incentive to do so. He makes his money polling for clients. The more accurate the more clients and the more $$. The media polls? They have no incentive. They provide the results the leftist media outlets desire and those same outlets will rehire those polling firms regardless of accuracy. No incentive whatsoever to get it right.

      On Georgia Baris said in advance of the runoffs that there were about 300,000 Republicans that were not going to vote in central and southern Georgia and that Purdue and Loeffler were doomed. He called it exactly right. Now? His polling is showing those voters are coming out. Warnock is toast.

      No, you moron. The Fl dynamics are different then the Rust Belt. DeSantis is the Governor of Florida, so people will judge him on his record there. Has nothing to do with the working class vote in Youngtown Oh or Erie Pa.

      “Incidentally, one of Trumps strongest appeals to the working class was anti free trade w China. I thought you favored free trade.”

      EXACTLY. Thanks for making my point. I don’t support Trump’s AFL-CIO agenda of stupid trade wars and tariffs. But his demagogic narrative did appeal to blue collar voters the the rust belt, no doubt.

      I fully understand most R voters have bought into Trump’s protectionist and isolationist rhetoric. It is the main reason I no longer identify with the party and quit the party in 2016. But I also understand Trump’s message was successful, both can be true.

      NEW: Per an ICE source, Fox News’ @BillFOXLA reports that David DePape, the individual accused of attacking Paul Pelosi, is currently in the U.S. illegally as a “longtime” visa overstay.

    639. DW says:

      Tina, if that’s true that DePape is an illegal, then that’s why its all gotta be hushed up until after the election. An illegal attacking the spouse of the Speaker of the House?

    640. Chicon says:

      NYC, I was inquiring about what a GOP Congress can do, starting in January of next year. Your idea, which I like, is an executive function; and I don’t see Joe doing it.

    641. Gordon Allen says:

      Jason. You ALWAYS sound so insecure.
      How about we wait and see what the actual results turn out to be.
      I have my view; you have yours.
      Like your invincible 190,000 Spartans, er Russians overrunning Ukraine??
      Trump will not be the GOP nominee. How about we await the actual results.
      If I’m wrong,I will admit it.
      If you are,will you?
      A simple Y or N will suffice.

      From Tom Beven at Real Clear Politics:

      More on NYT/Siena polls. Biden’s approval in each state is

      Arizona: 36%
      Nevada: 38%
      Georgia: 39%
      Pennsylvania: 42%

      So, NYT has Kelly running 15 points ahead of Biden’s approval, Warnock +10, CCM +9, and Fetterman +7.

    643. Tina says:

      Biden’s Beotch will ensure that this rammed through.

      Michael Tracey

      Now the amount of Ukraine war funding that could be rammed through Congress during the lame duck could be as much as *$60 billion*

      Recall, the amount of “aid” given to Ukraine in 2022 is *already* higher than the amount given to any country in a single year since South Vietnam

    644. NYCmike says:

      “Your idea, which I like, is an executive function; and I don’t see Joe doing it.”

      -Good point.

    645. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      Here is a just-released Jon Ralston propaganda poll of the Nevada races. As you would expect, it has the Dem. Governor’s candidate ahead by 4 and the Senate candidate up by 2. A few things:
      1- A week before election day and the number of undecideds are 15% in the Senate race. The Dem. is ahead 43-41.
      2- There is no PID
      3- The head-to-heads are in the middle of the crosstabs after many other questions are asked. This is poor technique.

    646. Hugh says:

      While he did post that poll on his Twitter account, In fairness to he seems to be trashing that poll. Given I have had to stomach his Twitter account for the last several elections he seems very less like a cheerleader. I actually thinks he sees the writing on the wall

    647. Tina says:

      Or he knows fraudulent ballots will come to the rescue.

    648. Michael says:

      There’s a structural problem I see with the PA and GA polls…many show 20-30% of black vote going to the R candidate (see: Trafalgar, Emerson, InsiderAdv) and 2020 showed in those states, roughly 8% to the senate candidates on the right and 10% to Trump. I want to flag that

    649. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      This is likely the most accurate poll of the Utah Senate race.

      UTAH POLL:

      @MikeLeeforUtah 49%
      @EvanMcMullin 39%
      Someone else 4%
      Undecided 4%

    650. jason says:

      I would not be surprised if Walker got 20% of the black vote in GA.

      Also would not be surprised in a 50% increase say from 10 to 15% of the black vote going to Rs.

      I think any poll showing 30% is unrealistic.

    651. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      #656- Michael The last I looked, GA GOP candidate Hershel Walker, is a Black man. Second, PA Blacks may not like the idea that in his heart, Fetterwoman , is a Liberal racist who hunted down a Black man with a gun for sport. Lastly, go FL-G Yourself!

    652. Tina says:

      Also, blacks and Hispanics are suffering the most from the Biden economy/inflation.

      Inflation is quite “taxing.”

    653. Michael says:


      On your team. I’m flagging it bc I want Baris to talk about it. I suspect you’re right about Walker getting 20% of the black vote but it’s not historical. My guess is we land around 15-17%

    654. Phil says:

      Yep, last time I looked Walker was black.

    655. Phil says:

      15-17 looks pretty realistic.

      That would be enough, BTW.

    656. Michael says:

      I agree with you all but the same numbers apply to fetterman / Oz and kemp

      I want to see a trash liberal poll show an uptick in black support bc my guess is they won’t

    657. Cash Cow TM says:

      Who did it?
      Was it Col. Mustard in the library with a rope?
      Was it Professor Plum in the bedroom with a knife?

      it was David Depape in the living room with a hammer!

    658. jason says:

      Pelosi’s attacker is an illegal…

      NEW: Per ICE source, David DePape, the suspect accused of beating Paul Pelosi in his home with a hammer after breaking in, is currently in the U.S. illegally as a “longtime” visa overstay.

    659. Michael says:

      I think 17%, when crunching numbers, can get us over 50% in GA

      I’m looking at early vote turnout by race and comparing it to 18/20 and it strikes me that more black voters are voting as a percentage of the total voted but that isn’t necessarily a win for D’s if we tick up to 15-20%

    660. Phil says:

      Of course during the press conference his immigration status was not mentioned. I’m shocked.

    661. jason says:

      I think Michael’s point is well taken.

      However, if it is consistent among many polls it might be realistic to believe that at least in GA (Walker is black) and PA (Fetterman not that popular with blacks) the R black vote might exceed the national average.

    662. jason says:

      Also, blacks don’t have to vote R to hurt the Dems chances. All they have to do is not show up.

    663. Gordon Allen says:

      #661. A white guy in Florida got 17% of the Black vote in Florida in 2018.
      I’d be very disappointed if Walker can’t do a lot better in Georgia in 2022.

    664. jason says:

      On the “defund the FBI” issue, I agree with Jason and NYC; serious change needs to occur in that cesspool, AND the law enforcement functions of the FBI cannot be eliminated. So, the question is what, specifically, can a GOP Congress do (assuming they really want to) to effectively address the use of the FBI as a political enforcement organization?”

      Defunding the FBI is a stupid idea, because the law enforcement functions are essential. In addition, if the leadership is not changed, fewer resources might just mean they continue as before and make cuts elsewhere in the organization. If Rs reduce funding, they will be blamed for any terrorist attack or major crime that occurs, it is not a politically viable strategy either.

      Not sure what power Congress has to mandate changes in the FBI leadership. Major changes will only occur when there is R President to put in a Director that will make those changes.

      However, a R House and Senate, even just a R house, can hold hearings and lay bare to the the American public what went on. It can keep the spotlight on the present leadership for the next two years, and that may limit their ability to pursue partisan activities.

    665. Cash Cow TM says:

      True The Vote leaders are currently in jail in TX.
      Long story, but read to the end.

      Walt met with some True The Vote people in D.C. sometime between 2012 and 2015. Several congressmen also came by–including Rep. Jason Chaffetz and 3 or 4 other congressmen from MI and other places and Walt was introduced to them.
      The feature speaker to the small group (maybe 30 people in attendance) was Anita Moncreif, former ACORN worker turned whistleblower.
      The focus of the presentation and following discussion was illegal activities of ACORN and illegal voting happenings.

      “Federal marshals escorted the leaders of True the Vote out of a Houston courtroom on Monday morning and into a holding cell. Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips have been held in contempt of court for refusing to release the name of a person of interest in the defamation and computer hacking case against them, who they claim, without proof, is a confidential FBI informant.”

      “Konnech, the election management software company at the center of those claims, filed a federal lawsuit in September alleging that True the Vote’s viral social media campaign targeting the company’s founder and CEO, Eugene Yu…”

      “In podcasts and interviews, Phillips described a dramatic night in early 2021 in a Dallas hotel, where a man he later identified as Mike Hasson revealed what True the Vote has said was hard evidence of Konnech’s alleged influence on the 2020 election.”

      The involvement of a third man was unknown until a Thursday hearing, when Konnech’s attorney’s pressed Phillips for additional information about what Phillips claimed was an hourslong Konnech research session in Dallas that night. On the stand, Phillips revealed that another “analyst” was present in the room when Hasson allegedly offered evidence he’d uncovered about Konnech, showing the company had stored American poll worker data on a server in China. Neither he nor Engelbrecht would release the third man’s name, saying he was in danger from “drug cartels.” ”

      “Yu was arrested in his home state of Michigan on Oct. 4 before facing charges in Los Angeles County, where he was briefly held on house arrest. He has now posted bond and returned to Michigan with an ankle monitor.”

      “Yu is facing felony charges of grand theft by embezzlement and conspiracy to commit a crime. The Los Angeles district attorney’s office said Yu and Konnech violated the company’s contract with Los Angeles County by illegally giving contractors in China access to data that was supposed to be stored only in the United States. Yu has filed a motion to dismiss the charges, arguing that even if the charges are true, they aren’t criminal. Los Angeles prosecutors have acknowledged receiving an early tip from Phillips.”
      So officials have arrested two of the True The Vote leaders.

      And they arrested one of the guys that worked for the firm “Kontech” for storing sensitive data in China. The guy they arrested and is facing trial in CA is Yu.

      You are free to air your views. I am free to point out how stupid they are.

      I hope that is clear.

    670. jason says:

      Like your invincible 190,000 Spartans, er Russians overrunning Ukraine??

      Yeah, that was pretty stupid.

    671. jason says:

      Trump will not be the GOP nominee. How about we await the actual results.

      WTF? I never said Trump would be the nominee. I said to win the GE, DeSantis will need the blue collar vote in swing states in the rust belt.

    672. jason says:

      If I’m wrong,I will admit it.”

      So far you have been wrong just about on every issue, have not seen you admit it yet.

      Ok, that does it for Neville Allen’s post, we can move on.

    673. jason says:

      Trump finally endorses Bolduc.

      Is Amoral Scumbag going to say it is because Bolduc will win anyway?

      Or will he say Bolduc lost because of Trump?

      Hint: will be one or the other.

      Deeply concerning information coming out about the government and tech working together to censor content:

      Docs show Facebook and Twitter closely collaborating w/ Dept of Homeland Security, FBI to police “disinfo.” Plans to expand censorship on topics like withdrawal from Afghanistan, origins of COVID, info that undermines trust in financial institutions.
      Leaked Documents Outline DHS’s Plans to Police Disinformation
      Lee Fang

      FBI agent Laura Dehmlow was in communications w Facebook that led to the suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story in 2020 over the false allegation that it was “disinfo.” This year, she met w/ Twitter/DHS to stress “we need a media infrastructure that is held accountable.”

      Facebook and Twitter created special portals for the government to rapidly request takedowns of content. The portals, along with NGO partners used to censor a wide range of content, including obvious parody accounts and content disagreeing w gov pandemic policy.

      The emails and documents show close collaboration b/w DHS & private sector. Twitter’s Vijaya Gadde (fired by
      last week) met monthly with DHS to discuss censorship plans. Microsoft exec texted DHS: “Platforms have got to get comfortable with gov’t”

    675. Phil says:

      Wow. Baris just went off on Nate Cohn and Politico on his Twitter account in response to their tweets about his polling. Holy sh*t. Me thinks they just messed with the wrong MF. He literally ripped them a new A Hole. Highly entertaining. About time someone just came out and told the polling industry how it is. Haven’t ever seen that side of Baris before. Loved it.

      Come on, Skippy. Don’t bring that Trafalgar garbage over here. Just because Cahaly got the governor’s races in New Jersey & Va right on the number doesn’t mean he knows how to poll.

      Pelosi knew the guy. Well no, he didn’t. There were 3 people there. No, two. Both guys had hammers. No, only one hammer. Both of them were in their underwear. No, just Pelosi. Is it a surprise we don’t believe the narrative when the facts must be heavily edited to conform to it?”

    693. Steant1965 says:

      News on Twitter right now: Libertarian candidate in AZ will be dropping out of the race and endorsing Masters. Let’s see if MSM treats him like the hero they just treated that independent candidate in PA who dropped out and endorsed Fetterman. Doubtful. But this is a good development in a close race.

    694. Gordon Allen says:

      Jason. Your memory has failed you.
      I said the Russians could never successfully invade and occupy Ukraine with only 190,000 troops,if only because they didn’t have the necessary force to space ratio.
      About 1250 times or so.
      I was right, you wrong
      DeSantis ‘s entire program and philosophy is aimed at the working class, from which he came,unlike Trump.

    695. Gordon Allen says:

      Tina. DeSantis did more than endorse Zelden he flew up to NY Saturday night to campaign w him on Long Island.

    696. jason says:

      I said the Russians could never successfully invade and occupy Ukraine with only 190,000 troops,”

      Nah, you are a pathological liar.

      You said the Russians would NEVER invade with that few troops, period. “Successfully” my ass.

      Nobody here ever claimed 190k troops were enough to occupy all of Ukraine, straw argument.

      You were wrong, and won’t admit your magazines and video games were wrong too.

    697. jason says:

      DeSantis ‘s entire program and philosophy is aimed at the working class, from which he came,unlike Trump”

      Zzzzzz… so the only people that can attract working class people are politicians from the working class?

      Is that really what you will go with?

      I hate to tell you, but just every Dem politician that has cornered the blue collar vote is from wealthy backgrounds. Or do you think the Kennedys were working class? Al Gore? John Kerry? Did Obama ever have a real job in his life? You are an idiot.

      Again, there is ZERO evidence so far DeSantis appeals to working class voters in the midwest and rust belt the way Trump does.

      Just because DeSantis might have a working class background, only an absolute moron would think that automatically gets him the working class vote.

    698. jason says:

      The L candidate dropping out in AZ is big.

      Yes, still on ballot, some people have already voted, etc.

      But it gives Masters some press and momentum and remember Trump “lost” AZ by 10k votes. This endorsement will be worth more than that.

    699. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      Here are the crosstabs for the just-released Wall Street Journal National Poll with a PID of D+2. the results of the questions in #25 probably tell the story of this election. The highlights are:

      Biden is underwater in his approval/disapproval by 12 pts.
      The CGB is R+2 after being D+3 in August

    700. jason says:

      I actually hope Trump doesn’t run and DeSantis is the nominee. The main advantage besides having a lot less baggage is that DeSantis could be there for 8 years. Plus I think DeSantis is more of an ideological conservative than Trump.

      But I have reservations about his appeal to the right demographics in the right states I think he needs to win.

      If Neville Allen cannot cope with that, he can GFH.

      Actually, he can GFH anyway.

    701. jason says:

      Looking at the crosstabs. Some interesting numbers.

      Most important issue for you.

      Equality/LGBT – 0%

      Abortion/women’s rights/Supreme Court/Pro-choice 9%

      Which party has better abortion policy D-43 R-31
      neither 13.

      Better economic plan for people like you R 43 D 38

      Better inflation plan R 48 D 27

      Reduce crime R 43 D 29

      Secure the border R 49 D 21

      Major causes for division in the country

      Media 69%
      Negative campaigns 41
      Social media 64

    702. jason says:

      That crosstab shows the fallacy of running just on abortion.

      Dems have a measly 12% lead on an issue that is the most important for less than 10%.

      Only 43% even agree with Dems that their abortion stance is the best.

    703. jason says:

      Also remember these opinions are national.

      If you go to swing states, the R advantages will be even more skewed towards Rs.

      In my view, this is a really bad poll for Dems.

    704. Chicon says:

      713 – also, in most/all of those swing states, Biden is far under water. This means that it is likely that a big % of late deciding voters will go away from the D’s.

    705. jason says:

      Evidently to get the L support in AZ Masters had to agree to publish a 20 minute conversation he had with him.

      Hopefully, Masters did not agree to anything too radical he can be beaten over the head with, it would negate the effect.

      But since Masters agreed to it as a pre-condition, he probably did not say anything stupid.

    706. Country Dick Montana says:

      Far be it for me to throw gasoline on the jason/gordon fued, but US New and Worl Report just ranked Lancaster and Yark, PA ahead of Naples as best places to retire. Harrisburg, Reading and Allentown were also in the top 10.

      Sorry Gordon.

    707. jason says:

      Right. Biden is underwater nationally by 12. But that includes CA, MA, MD, DC, WA, etc. where he is down by less.

    708. jason says:

      Bittersville did not make the top 10?


      Also never heard of Yark, PA.

    709. Country Dick Montana says:

      York, PA

    710. jason says:

      I got it, CDM, just joking.

      Here is some Halloween humor.

    711. DW says:

      Was talking to an 84 year old man who is now a widower and trying to make ends meet, and so I asked him how the solution to inflation proposed by the Democrat Candidate for Governor of Georgia would work out for him. I asked him how getting an abortion would help bring down his costs. He of course laughed.

    712. jason says:

      “I’ve said from the very beginning that the reason I’m running for senate is to promote and get us in the direction of freedom and peace and civility,” Victor said in a YouTube video announcing his endorsement.

      Victor said at one point in his video, “[Masters] really is — in his heart and in his mind — he’s in favor of doing everything he can to get us very sternly, very smartly in the direction of ‘live and let live.’ And that seems like a good tradeoff to me.”

    713. jason says:

      Neither Good or Bad Philadelphia made the list, huh?

    714. DW says:

      Phil, or any other follower of Baris, do you know a good page where it summarizes all his polls for this cycle? He is of course not listed on 538, and RCP doesn’t include him either for some reason.

    715. jason says:

      Is the election near?

      Silverhack just moved Rs to 50/50.

    716. jason says:

      At Predictit the same people who said Victor would cost Masters the election now say his endorsement doesn’t matter.

    717. Phil says:

      DW, you know, I’ve looked for one central location for a listing of his polls myself and have yet to find one. He does three levels of polling – private polling for congressional and statewide candidates, Peoples Pundit Polls which are financed by contributions from followers and other smaller outlets, and Big Data polls funded by media outlets like the Epoch Times. He releases the last two categories publicly on his twitter account and goes over them in depth crosstabs included on his podcasts.

      Yes, his polls have been banned by 538 (for obvious reasons by Silver the hack) but RCP will be including his polls next cycle. They just couldn’t ignore his track record any longer. He has a good relationship with Tom Bevin who has written several pieces praising his work.

      His locals site has linked to six pages of crosstabs and methodologies from his just completed Pennsylvania poll. I paid particular attention to those since his 2016 Trump +1 and 2020 Biden +1 were smack dab on the number. He obviously knows what he is doing in that state.

    718. Chicon says:

      I thought I read here (mostly from Fly Boy) that the Trump-ridden GOP had no chance of getting back the suburban vote….

      “The GOP has seen a shift in its favor among several voter groups, including Latino voters and women, and particularly white suburban women. That group, which the pollsters said makes up 20% of the electorate, shifted 26 percentage points away from Democrats since the Journal’s August poll and now favors the GOP by 15 percentage points.”

    719. Phil says:

      I know this isn’t a big deal or much of a shock, but I like to keep everyone informed on what’s happening in my neck of the woods.

      The University of Houston Texas Poll was just released:

      Abbott 53
      Beto 40

      Their last poll at the end of August was 49-42.

      Beto raised thirty million from his true believer coastal elitists. We here in Texas appreciate the lefty money released into the Texas economy. Much appreciated.

    720. jason says:

      Abbott winning big will kill the “Texas is going blue” narrative.

      Hope it happens.

    721. Chicon says:

      Phil, while we all know the outcome of that race, it is good to see the recent trend because it matches a similar trend throughout the country.

    722. Phil says:

      My thoughts as well, Chicon.

    723. JeffP says:

      693 Yes your right on tonight with Baris Phil. The World Series will be on mute then 🙂

    724. Phil says:

      Kamala stumping today for Democrats in…. Boston?

      Obviously, they don’t need her in Massachusetts. a pretty good guess is that they are just trying to keep her out of the way. If you didn’t think even Democrats believe she is a liability this is your answer.

    725. JeffP says:

      Tudor Dixon keeps on rising in the polls. That’s awesome. She is one sharp likable charismatic naturally beautiful woman that is for sure.

      I know some of the Muslim leaders in Dearborn are supporting her. That could cut into some Whitmer margins in Wayne County. I also think she will do well (better than 2020 Trump) in Oakland County with suburban families. Margins in Macomb will be fantastic.

    726. Cash Cow TM says:



      11 Anti TRUMP, anti GOP

      9 Anti TRUMP, anti GOP

      That is all, except…





    727. Phil says:

      Roberts blocks handing over Trump tax returns sought by House Democrats. The stay is temporary while the Court considers the merits. Still, I doubt the left expected this.

    728. JeffP says:

      The Wicked Witch of the Midwest was at 44 in the IA poll. That would spell doom for her if true. Trafalgar had 48…so average that…even at 46 she is in serious trouble. I guess the RCP projection might be correct. Losing Gov in MI and NY would be major blows for the Woke Commie Dems.

    729. jason says:

      Dem hack is worried…

      Jon Ralston
      For those wondering, I just confirmed that there is no backlog of mail waiting to be processed. This is not a good scenario at all for Dems, unless USPS not processing fast enough.

      No massive Clark mail as in 2020. As I have said, this is an apple, other cycles are oranges.”

    730. JeffP says:

      Ralston is hilarious in his agony. I can’t wait to see how the Latino vote went in NV.

    731. Tina says:

      The libertarian candidate has dropped out of the senate race and endorses Blake masters.

      He was polling up to 6%.

    732. jason says:

      Ralston hasn’t given up.

      Could be the mail is slow.

    733. Phil says:

      The hacks at the Cook Political Report have just quietly moved 10 blue state House races in the Republican direction.

      The usual last week herding by DC prognosticators and pollsters to avoid complete embarrassment after carrying Democrats’ water all year long.

      Happens every cycle does it not? So predictable.

    734. jason says:

      So if you can pick 3 tight races that you would really really want to win, what would they be.

      For me:

      1. Oz…I don’t want to have Fetterman as a senator..geezus

      2. Tudor Dixon.. would be epic to see Whitmire lose….what a horrible woman

      3. Walker… the antithesis of the suburban country club elitist Republicans… and endorsed by Trump….a big FU to Amoral Scumbag’s “hand picked” “brokered convention” “quality” candidates.

    735. Tina says:

      Why is the department of injustice involved in the pelosi matter so close to an election. It further proved that the agency is political.

      Maybe charges are warranted but they have not investigated anything.

    736. Hugh says:

      I respect Ras polling but what is with his Biden approval ratings?? Something has been adrift for a while.

    737. jason says:

      Scary people actually believe this crap…

      “I’m beginning to think Democrats made a mistake banking on Latinos. Between here, Texas, and Florida, they are not showing up when needed. I guess given their tendency to vote fascist in their own countries, it shouldn’t be surprising”

    738. jason says:

      I never voted fascist in Chile, just to be clear.

    739. jason says:

      Ok, besides the 3 tight races, which of the “impossible” races do you want to win, only can pick one

      1. Bolduc
      2. Zeldin
      3. Smiley
      4. O’Dea

    740. Hugh says:

      Bolduc. That is a seat we can hold until I’m dead and I’m 64. The others will likely flip in the next election

    741. Brandon says:

      Bolduc, as he would have the best chance to retain his seat in the next cycle. The others would be one-and-done.

    742. dylan says:

      749—I’ll take Smiley. Murray is revolting.

    743. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      #746- Hugh
      Maybe Rasmussen(less) sold to the same Company that purchased The Drudge Report.
      Today, Ras has Biden’s approval rising to 46%, tied with The Economist/YouGov polling for the highest.
      I bet that Ras,too, has been having trouble picking-up the “shy Trump voter”.

    744. Chicon says:

      Three tight races…

      1. Kari Lake
      2. Masters
      3. Michels (WI Governor)

      I want some hell raisers….


      Patty Murray losing.

    745. jason says:

      I don’t consider the Lake race tight. There are 2 polls showing her up double digits.

    746. Chicon says:

      Fair point on Lake. I’ll substitute Two Door Dixon.

    747. Phil says:

      At this point Democrats desperately need a mass school shooting to change the narrative before next Tuesday. Maybe they can pay someone to do it.

    748. jason says:

      Watch the segment on inflation. Unbelievable this guy is considered apt for the senate by “his doctors”.

    749. jason says:

      At this point Democrats desperately need a mass school shooting to change the narrative before next Tuesday.”

      You mean the nudist “Jesus Christ” nutjob attack on Paul Pelosi didn’t do it?

    750. jason says:

      OMG, this might be the game changer..

      “ABC News
      Travel time to abortion facilities has quadrupled post-Roe, study finds
      Tue, November 1, 2022 at 11:00 AM

      The amount of time women will have to travel to receive an abortion has quadrupled from about half an hour to nearly two hours since the Supreme Court overruled Roe v. Wade this summer, a new study finds.”

    751. jason says:

      This is CNN…

      “Americans should consider purchasing smaller breeds of household pets and feeding them an “insect-based” diet to help curb their alleged influence on the climate, according to a CNN article that circulated on social media last week. The recommendation comes as activists have ramped up calls to normalize bugs and synthetic meat not only in pet diets but in human diets as well.”

    752. GF says:

      Silverhack finally puts the Senate at 51% GOP odds.

    753. Tgca says:


      I posted this over a week ago in the last thwed dude! You need to pay attention!

      OMG! These Bishes are crazy!

      In support of the environment, climate change activists suggest feeding your pets insect diets instead of meat diets.

      Adopt smaller pets like rodents instead of dogs too.

      Choose small breeds if you must have dogs.

      So what I’m hearing is organized genocide of dogs, specifically larger breeds and forcing them into unnatural diets that could have detrimental impacts on their health and life span.

    754. jason says:

      Still shows 50/50 to me, but my Internet is delivered by stagecoach.

    755. jason says:

      I posted this over a week ago in the last thwed dude! You need to pay attention!”

      Yes, but people read what I post…

    756. JeffP says:

      Ralston…the Clark County USPS must be waiting on the ballot harvesters to drop off at least another hundred thousand or so mail in ballots!!!

    757. jason says:

      I suggested some guinea pigs as “pets”.

      My wife vetoed the idea because she thinks I will eat them.

      I have no idea why she would think that…

    758. Gordon Allen says:

      Has the Trafalgar Poll with Zeldin at 48.4% and Hochul at 47.6% been previously been posted?

    759. Tgca says:

      The AZ libertarian candidate dropping out a week before the election is a perfect example of why early voting is a bad idea.

      Those voters that voted early and for him have their vote invalidated if their intentions were to benefit him or the Dems.

    760. Chicon says:

      It has been awhile since New York City has needed to cheat to win elections; I wonder if they are up to speed on the new methods. We’ll see soon.

    761. Tgca says:


      Agree its a silly argument to make that a politician must be from the working class to attract the working class.

      I would add FDR to that list. A wealthy man elected 4 times representing the working class.

      Now faux news warns of an Iranian attack (unspecified) on us.

      Biden’s friends.

    763. jason says:

      Remember, Ralston pretends to be non-partisan….

      “Sure, it’s possible that voters will see down-ticket that some of the GOP candidates are unqualified and/or unhinged and Dems could still win. But these numbers are not good for Dem incumbents at the top of the ticket.

    764. Wes says:

      Actually, Tg, the 2000 election is the best example of why early voting is a bad idea. A lot of people who had cast their votes for GWB already said they would have switched their votes had they known about the DUI. Although EV wasn’t as big a part of voting then as now, it certainly affected the outcome of the presidential race that year.

      John Fund covers this in his 2004 book Stealing Elections.

    765. Wes says:

      Zeldin gets an endorsement from a Hassidic group that’s otherwise endorsing Democrats this year:

    766. Brandon says:


      New Hampshire (Saint Anslem)

      Bolduc(R): 48%
      Hassan(D-Inc): 47%

      Sununu(R-Inc): 55%
      Sherman(D): 37%

      Leavitt(R): 51%
      Pappas(D-Inc): 42%

      Kuster(D-Inc): 50%
      Burns(R): 42%

    767. Brandon says:

      45% for Pappas, not 42%.

    768. DW says:

      And for those keeping a box score at home, that’s the first Bolduc lead.

    769. Tina says:

      Bolduc needs
      Is the same day registration as issue ?

      Did the governor do anything about it.

    770. DW says:

      Am tempted to move Bolduc up a notch…will wait for more polling:

      49 – Wisconsin – Johnson
      50 – Pennsylvania – Oz
      51 – Georgia – Walker
      52 – Nevada – Laxalt
      53 – Arizona – Masters
      54 – New Hampshire – Bolduc
      –obviously much less likely:
      55 – Colorado – O’Dea
      56 – Washington – Smiley
      57 – Connecticut – Levy
      58 – Illinois
      59 – Oregon
      60 – New York

    771. DW says:

      Prior Saint Anselm poll was

      43/49 for Hassan. Huge swing.

    772. Tina says:

      The candidates are doing a great job tagging the drats with crime, masks/Covid lockdowns and vaccines for school age children.

      See Zeldin.

    773. Chicon says:

      Tina, those are all bad candidates.


    774. jason says:

      Ralston “non partisan”?

      “Sure, it’s possible that voters will see down-ticket that some of the GOP candidates are unqualified and/or unhinged and Dems could still win. But these numbers are not good for Dem incumbents at the top of the ticket.

    775. jason says:

      Huh, I didn’t think that had posted. Oh well, enjoy it twice.

    776. jason says:

      I love the sound of A-holes going BOOM in the afternoon…

    777. jason says:

      If Hassan is really at 47% this late in the game she is in big trouble. Hard to see undecideds breaking for her.

    778. NYCmike says:

      Agree with Hugh and Brandon about Bolduc.

      A Zeldin W would be great, but he would not make much of a difference in NY for the long-term, unless he goes scorched earth right away and things turn out ok down the road.

    779. DW says:

      Hassan now in the territory where a loss is possible.

      Incumbent polling – wins/losses going to back to 2010
      43 – 44.9, 3 Wins and 6 Losses
      45 – 46.9, 7 Wins and 3 Losses
      47 – 48.9, 13 Wins and 3 Losses

      GA: Warnock 45.8
      NV: Cortez-Masto 46.5
      AZ: Kelly 47.7 (was 47.6)
      NH: Hassan 48.3 (was 48.7)
      IL: Duckworth 49.5
      CO: Bennet 49.5
      FL: Rubio 49.6
      WA: Murray 49.7
      WI: Johnson 50.8
      OR: Wyden 51.0
      CT: Blumenthal 52.7
      NY: Schumer 52.7

    780. Wes says:

      I despise Hassan. I’d love to see Bolduc beat her as revenge for her ouster of Kelly Ayotte.

    781. Wes says:

      It’s highly unlikely to happen, but I’d love to see both Bennet and Murray fall along with the Senators Republicans have more realistic shots at defeating.

    782. DW says:

      And just for the record, Saint Anselm polled at the same time of year in 2020:

      Corky Messner (R) 39
      Jeanne Shaheen (D) 54

      Actual results:

      Corky Messner (R) 41.0 (+2)
      Jeanne Shaheen (D) 56.6 (+2.6)

      Pretty close to spot on.

    783. NYCmike says:

      All of a sudden Wes is a Bolduc cheerleader…….amazing such a transformation… a Nate Silver-type transformation.

    784. NYCmike says:

      Schumer must really despise Hassan…….s/

    785. Tina says:

      Regarding Bolduc, it would be nice if desantis and hee haw endorse.

      If they did I missed it.

      Desantis can help.

    786. Tina says:

      Calling Gretchen dimwit names is not helpful. The fib won’t like it.

      Remember During her lockdowns she banned growing your own vegetables.

      Now the Covid commies want an amnesty.

      Phuq all of them.

    787. Wes says:

      Mikey’s a liar too, as is typical.

      I’ve never been–and am not now–a cheerleader for Don Bolduc. However, I have repeatedly stated my loathing for Maggie Hassan. Unfortunately the Schumer-backed Don Bolduc is the only person this year who can send her packing from Washington. As such, I have no choice but to hope Bolduc can win.

      Now get your head out of your ass, you insufferable moron.

    788. jason says:

      All of a sudden Wes is a Bolduc cheerleader”


      I am sure both wes and I would rather see a R win.

      I called Bolduc a deadender, but I will be happy to be wrong if he wins.

      Also, your man Schumer thought he was a deadender too, that he why he funded his primary win.


    789. jason says:

      wes, Schumer is in trouble.

      If a deadender finally wins, NYC will believe EVERY deadender can win.

      And if he thinks every deadender can win, he won’t support Schumer’s candidates anymore.

      He might stop getting coffee mugs.

    790. jason says:

      And to make it clear, I am still no fan of Bolduc, I think he is just a slight cut above moron.

      But he is better than Maggie Hassan.

    791. Wes says:

      I understand you’re an idiot, Mikey, but realistically Bolduc is more likely to vote for Schumer to be Senate Majority Leader than McConnell. He’s already promised multiple times never to vote for McConnell, and Schumer did fund his campaign. That leaves him with exactly one option to support in January assuming he wins in a week–and also assuming Bolduc isn’t lying about refusing to vote for McConnell.

    792. jason says:

      I have no recollection of Corky.

    793. jason says:


      So much for wes’s “transformation”.

    794. jason says:

      Calling Gretchen dimwit names is not helpful”


    795. Wes says:

      Thanks, Jason.

      Mikey’s too stupid to understand wanting to see Maggie the Moonbat lose is not the same as being a cheerleader for Don Bolduc.

    796. jason says:

      -Necessary to do that before we post the corrections……

    806. Wes says:

      Ah, yes. That political juggernaut known as Will Ferrell.

      Beto just has no clue of the fact that Texas is not California, has he?

    812. jason says:

      Where is Bitter? Jet lag?

    813. Wes says:

      Or 820 for that matter.

      Wes hitting the Sauce

      He is 0-4.

      Poor Wes. Having a bad 2022 election?

    816. jason says:

      Comment at Predictit sums it up well…

      “It’s not really giving up. It’s reality. Midterms have a predictable pattern. The whole “ this time it’s different” reasoning was pure BS. Pocketbook issues will dominate and because democrats talked more about abortion and republicans being a threat to democracy it allowed the GOP to talk about pocketbook issues without a competing argument. In other words because democrats couldn’t read the room, they gift wrapped the midterms for republicans. Also elections are not won on twitter”

    817. jason says:

      Btw, just because I am supporting Vance, Masters and Bolduc, I don’t really like any of them. I supported Timken in OH, Brnovich in AZ and Morse in NH. I just like them better than the Dems they are facing.

      Of the potential newcomers to the senate, I like Walker and Oz. I like O’Dea, if he makes it. And Smiley, if she makes it.

    818. jason says:

      Oh, and if Chewbacca makes it, I don’t like her either

    819. DW says:

      that’s a great quote from predictit jason.

      I mean come on! Food prices have skyrocketed. Everyone needs food. Gas and oil prices have skyrocketed, and everyone needs petroleum products.

      Crime is out of control so people don’t feel safe.

      The border is wide open, who knows what terrorists have been let in.

      Schools are saying YOUR children belong to THEM.

      And the Democrat’s answer to these problems that THEY created is you should get more abortions and Republicans are a threat to democracy?

      Yeah, they SHOULD get crushed in the elections. Whether they will or not remains to be seen

    820. ken says:

      schumer will be nail biter

    821. NYCmike says:

      Who said anything about liking them?

      The Democratic candidates support Biden, Schumer and Pelosi. That is the simple reason why the primary winner should be spoken about in a positive manner and supported. They will be better than the Democrat.

      Hopefully, you and Wes-con will learn a valuable lesson.

    822. Tina says:

      Remember I am sent by gateway pundit and I said racist things about Biden’s beitchs wife according to juvenile Wes.

      At least bl apologized for that as the remark came from someone else.

    823. Wes says:

      Poor lying Tina, who literally posted a link showing Mitch McConnell had made a judicial recommendation to Biden and then lied claiming McConnell had helped Biden scuttle the nomination.

      Too many limoncellos because McConnell hasn’t been burned at the stake, Tina?

    824. Phil says:

      Well, well

      Nate Silver just updated and has Democratic chances down to 17% of holding the House. On October 1st he had it at 32%. He’s doing what he always does. Over selling Democratic chances most of the year in order to help Democrats fund raise and to depress Republican fundraising and support. In other words, Nate Silver was doing the job he’s been given each and every cycle. Now, it the usual pull back at the end in order to try to be able to tell everyone that “see, I didn’t get it that wrong”.

      Oh, and he just now dropped the Democratic chances of holding the Senate down to 49. How convenient after carrying water for Democratic chances all summer and early Fall. Silver is not a pollster. Silver is not a prognosticator. Silver is a propagandist.

    825. NYCmike says:

      I think Wes is sniffing the massage oils too often……

    826. Phil says:

      Masters, Vance, Bolduc in the Republican caucus would be Mitch’s nightmare. Walker too except I think McConnell believes he can control Hershel and he’s probably right. At least Lake ran for governor instead of the Senate. He really wouldn’t be able to shut her up.

    827. Tina says:

      You said I made a racist remark.

      2 weeks to prove it and you cannot.

      Still waiting

      From RRH:

      “Leading election expert” Rachel Bitecofer offers us her expertise:

      BlueWave Alert. LOL!

      Two options:
      1) She is full of it, and its a red wave.

      2) She got a glimpse of the memo showing how they have already stolen the election, with ballots already in place and ready to be counted along with the votes of rubes who vote on election day and are still under the illusion its a clean process and no fraud.
