Wisconsin US Senate Election: Obama Travels to Wisconsin and Republican Ron Johnson Increases Lead over Democrat Russ Feingold 54% to 42%
WOW, what is going on in Wisconsin and in the Democrat party?
Maybe Democrat incumbent US Senator Russ Feingold should have taken his initial advice and stayed far away from Obama when President Barack Obama visited Wisconsin this past week. It would appear that the ”toxic” President once again spread his reverse Midas touch on Russ Feingold. With such toxicity and unfavorable job approval numbers, it makes one scratch their head as to how Obama could be ahead of Hillary Clinton 52% to 37% in a hypothetical 2012 Democrat nomination for President. However, the fact that such conversations are being discussed should crate concern for Democrats and Obama. A disasterous 2010 midterm and more bad economic numbers could create even worse job approval numbers for Obama. Some say Hillary will hold out until 2016.
With Vice President Biden too old to run for president after Obama, that leaves Clinton the most prominent administration official available in 2016. Assuming she continues to serve Obama without much controversy, she can help diminish her problems with his loyal supporters. She can leave the administration at some point to write a book and plan out a 2016 run.
However, back to the present. No sooner did Obama visit Wisconsin and act in a manner that was less than Presidential, the latest Rasmussen poll shows Republican challenger Ron Johnson takes a 12% lead over Democrat incumbent Russ Feingold in the race for the US Senate. How out of touch are Democrats with the voters? Speaker Pelosi stated that they wanted to seean aggressive Obama on the campaign trail, yet that hardly plays to independents. It made Obama look like a partisan and one of the main reason why the very independents who voted him into office, have now abaondoned him.
Republican Ron Johnson now leads incumbent Democrat Russ Feingold by 12 points in Wisconsin’s race for the U.S. Senate.
The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Johnson picking up 54% support, while Feingold, who is running for his fourth term in the Senate, gets 42% of the vote with leaners included. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, and two percent (2%) more are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Maybe this is the reason why Republican Ron Johnson now leads Feingold 54% to 42%, Feingold actually ran a political ad touting Obamacare. The ad has individuals stating to Johnson,”Hands off our healthcare.” Really? Seeing that it is the majority, including independents who see Democrats as interfering with “We the Peoples” health care … no wonder Feingold is behind in the polls.
Feingold and his staff must be kicking themself for showing up to the Obama rally. The only Democrats for the most part that are doing well in the polls are ones that are pretending they are not Democrat and have never heard of Obama, Pelosi or Reid.
Rasmussen has moved the Wisconsin US Senate race to leans Republican.

President Barack Obama’s Back Yard Barbecue Back Fires with the Small Business Owner David Greenspoon
Back Yard Barbecue Back Fires!
So much for a friendly back yard PR barbecue for President Barack Hussein Obama. The President cut off small business owner David Greenspoon, a member of “We the People,” and a certain voter this November 2nd at backyard barbecue event when being asked a question on business and economy, see VIDEO).
Obama’s latest attempt at PR for the economy has back fired in a major way. With so many people giving Obama poor marks on the economy, did the Chosen One actually think that he would be provided nothing but softballs?
Click on picture to see the full video of Obama on the hot seat at the back yard BBQ
It turns out that Barack Obama was the meat at this barbecue. When will Obama and his advisers learn, the American people give Obama such poor marks on the economy that there is no place he can go to hide from it. Unless it is a liberal college campus like the University of Wisconsin and a bunch of kids who do not know what a job is.
Obama’s next PR stop will be T-ball games where they keep no score.
Delaware US Senate Election: Castle Says No To Write In Campaign Against O’Donnell (R) and Coons (D)
Castle says no to write in campaign and endorsement …
Republican primary loser Mike Castle says he will not be the next sore loser Republican establishment Lisa Murkowski; however, he still cannot find the class to endorse Christine O’Donnell, the winner of the GOP US Senate primary in Delaware, as he had stated he would during the campaign. Mike Castle stated that he will say no to a “write-in” campaign for the US Senate in Delaware.
Longtime Rep. Mike Castle (R-Del.) announced late Wednesday that he will not launch a write-in bid for Senate this fall, ceding the stage to Tea Party favorite Christine O’Donnell (R) and New Castle County Executive Chris Coons (D).
Castle said he was “humbled” by the support and encouragement he has received since his primary loss to O’Donnell, but after giving a write-in bid careful consideration, he decided against it.
Castle just says no to endorsing the winner of the Republican primary. What an honorable republican that the GOP could have counted on with a necessary and needed vote against Democrats.

President Barack Hussein Obama is back in Iowa; however, he will not be campaigning for any of the Democrats top-of-the-ticket candidates. Obama, the toxic President, has yet to campaign for Democrats in Iowa as many in the Democrat party look to distance them selves from Obama and his unpopular policies. Obama won Iowa in 2008 with 54% of the vote; however, these days a majority of voters disapprove of the job of the President. 55% of the Iowa voters disapprove of Obama’s job as President, while only 42% approve.
President Barack Obama is scheduled to return today to Iowa, where a new Des Moines Register Iowa Poll shows a solid majority of likely voters disapprove of his performance.
The first-term Democrat will not be campaigning for any of his party’s top-of-the-ticket candidates, who trail their Republican opponents by double digits.
Obama has been spending his shrinking political capital elsewhere, such as the campaign rally he plans to attend today in Madison, Wis., for top Democratic candidates. Obama has not campaigned for Iowa Democrats this year, and the event he’s scheduled for Wednesday in Des Moines is an economic discussion. He has scheduled no public campaign events for this trip.
Obama carried Iowa with 54 percent of the vote over Republican John McCain in 2008.
In the new poll, 55 percent of likely voters in Iowa say they are dissatisfied with Obama. The rate is up from 50 percent since the Iowa Poll measured approval for Obama in February.
His approval among likely voters has edged down only slightly, to 42 percent in the poll taken last week from 44 percent in February.
Republican Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley continues to outpace Democratic challenger Roxanne Conlin by double digits, 55% to 37%. Also, Republican Terry Branstad maintains a double digit lead against Democratic incumbent Chet Culver in Iowa’s gubernatorial race as the GOP looks for a pick up in 2010.
Maybe there was a reason why Obama had been taking so many vacations, no one wanted them near their campaign.
