Washington Senate Election 2010: Dino Rossi (R) 48% Leads Patty Murray (D) 46%


Washington state is in play for US Senate seat …

More troubles for Democrats in the up coming 2010 midterm elections. Washington state not only is in play, Republican challenger Dino Rossi now leads incumbent Democrat Patty Murray in for the US Senate race in the most recent Rasmussen poll. Rossi leads Murray 48% to 46%.

In Washington State, the U.S. Senate race remains one of the closest in the country.

The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state shows Republican challenger Dino Rossi attracting 48% of the vote while Democratic Senator Patty Murray earns support from 46%. Three percent (3%) prefer a different candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided.

Murray picks up 87% of the Democratic vote whileRossi gets support from 89% of Republican voters. The GOP hopeful also has a significant edge among the state’s unaffiliated voters.

Real Clear Politics average polling has Republican Rossi up by 2.3%.

Why should Patty Murray and Democrats fear losing the US Senate seat in Washington state? Even in a blue state like Washington, the voters want change and it has nothing to do with Obama’s hope & change.

Just 28% say their own representative in Congress is the best person for the job. By a 44% to 40% margin, Washington voters say their own representative does not deserve re-election.

Forty-eight percent (48%) approve of President Obama’s job performance.

      Unfortunately, Rossi is going to need to win this election by at least 5 pts. or he’s going to end up robbed when the re-counts begin just like he did the last time.
      SM: Agreed.

      This was too cute not to share, but oh so true!!


      This one is a little different …

      Two Different Versions …

      Two Different Morals


      The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

      The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

      Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.

      The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.


      Be responsible for yourself!


      The ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

      The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

      Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving.

      CBS, NBC,PBS, CNN, and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.

      America is stunned by the sharp contrast.

      How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?

      Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, ‘It’s Not Easy Being Green …’

      ACORN stages a demonstration in front of the ant’s house where the news stations film the group singing, “We shall overcome.”

      Then Rev. Jeremiah Wright has the group kneel down to pray for the grasshopper’s sake.

      President Obama condemns the ant and blames
      President Bush, President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the Pope for the grasshopper’s plight.

      Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid exclaim in an interview with Larry King that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.

      Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity & Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of the summer.

      The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government Green Czar and given to the grasshopper.

      The story ends as we see the grasshopper and his free-loading friends finishing up the last bits of the ant’s food while the government house he is in, which, as you recall, just happens to be the ant’s old house, crumbles around them because the grasshopper doesn’t maintain it.

      The ant has disappeared in the snow, never to be seen again

      The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident, and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the ramshackle, once prosperous and peaceful, neighborhood.

      The entire Nation collapses bringing the rest of the free world with it.


      Be careful how you vote in 2010.

      My biggest problem with Dino right now is that he is running the exact same campaign that he ran the last 2 times that he lost. The guy just isn’t very enthusiastic in his ads or debates. Then I found the ad below. I love it! I really hope these people who founded the Not Dino for Dino group make more of these ads. They are non-smearing, make common sense statements, and will confuse the anti-Dino voters. I came across it at the notdino.com website and supposedly they will be airing this ad soon.
