Mitch Daniels was very popular and well liked and put his support forward for Pence not realizing I think thaty Pence only looked at this as a stepping stone. He actually spoke out during the entire debacle on Pence trying to push through that so called "religious freedom" anti gay business bill.
I'm not worried about Bayh or Feingold winning. I'm trying to understand and look for polls showing these races tightening and all I can point to is Sam Wang's data. The other races I will agree are tight but hell Toomey had a 15 point lead in PA and now he's basically tied with McGinty. The same in Nevada where Heck was way ahead
On a side note I had to laugh at Nate Silver's analyis a couple of weeks back where he was showing the map if only women voted, if only men voted, etc.. If only women vote the entire country goes blue. So for all you male doubting thomas's, we women, along with our minority brothers and sisters(reminder WMEN are not a minority)will again save our country as we have the last two elections. You can thank us on November 10th
Indiana is not the typical red state. Them going for Trump is not a surprise but despite everything both Bayh and Feingold are popular. Bayh is ahead now by 6% and Feingold by about the same. Maybe they were ahead by more. Combine Indiana with the fact Pence is hated there. There are dump Pence signs all over the state. The new GOPer running isn't remotely tying himself to Pence but the prior Governor who was a GOPer but stayed away from the social aspect of the GOP. Ayotte is not going to win I don't care what kind of media darling she was. Her last couple of weeks have cost her. And Rubio now has been hammered with rallies and commericlals by his opponent and the president and the Miami Herald just endorsed his opponent. PEC has the dems chance of winning the senate now at 79% and I trust Sam Wang a heck of a lot more than Silver.
They are going to gain Illinois, Wisconsin, and Indiana for sure. I think Ayotte is a goner now. Rubio is now neck and neck in Fl, as is Toomey in Pa, and Cortez has jumped ahead Heck in NV.
Garland may not be my preferred choice but if the dems take over the senate, I want him to be allowed to serve. I think it would be tacky to pull back his nomination.
I haven't felt this way so strongly until tonight but man I was so proud of Hillary Clinton. Even with a couple of bumps on her end she kept hammering and outclassed him totally. She looked the most presidential I have seen her yet. Even after the debate and he left and she made her way through the crowd greeting people, she was awesome. I am so proud that a woman this qualified will most likely be our next president. I wasn't sure I would feel this way again after President Obama was elected, but she was awesome.
I don't believe we are in any way shape or form similar to 2000 and I think in this case there will be no tie decision. I think Justice Roberts IMO will weigh on the side of what is right versus partisanship.
Garland by the way is very well liked by Roberts and word is he's personally very frustrated that no confirmation hearings have been allowed to move forward.
The one positive if there is any is that at least the GOP is not condoning Trump's "rigging" statements and have all come out in support of the election process. And I don't think ALL supporters of Trump believe this nonsense or won't accept the result of the election.
I find it funny how NO ONE not one person in the MSM is talking about her going ahead in Arizona, Georgia, how she is now 2 points behind in Texas, how Utah now shows Trump with 13% behind McMullin and Clinton.
Vee your opinion on how the email/WikiLeaks stuff plays out in upcoming debate and do you think the next debate will drop again in ratings?
I think at this point you're wrong. But thank goodness they still are paying attention or else we never would have known about the manufacturing that's been done to them. Combine that with the fact Trump denied Russian hacking and now the intelligence community is coming out angry saying he was briefed on the Russian hacking. And the email stuff hasn't had anything in it really.
At this point I am just enjoying the implosion of the GOP. Who knew a GOP candidate would be the one to increase Obama and Hillary's popularity while destroying their party. Trump is now in a twitter war with Paul Ryan
