Let me take a wild guess … stuttering Barack went away from his teleprompter prepared speech again. Just a hunch.
One again, it’s all about Obama, “Don’t Make Me Look Bad.” Me … me … me … me … me … me… me … me … me … me … me!!!
The One begged the audience not to make him look bad in the 2010 midterm elections as he stated he thought the pundit were wrong. Yup, they are all wrong, and you are right President Obama. Isn’t that what has been wrong with Obama’s Presidency? He thinks he knows more than every one else in the room.
Just a sampling of all the pundits who Obama thinks is wrong:
- CNN Opinion Research poll on Congressional Generic ballot – Republicans +7
- CBS News Poll on Congressional Generic ballot – Republicans +8
- Rasmussen Generic Congressional ballot – Republicans +3
- ABC/Washington Post Generic Congressional ballot – Republicans +6
- GallupGeneric Congressional ballot (low turn out) – Republicans +18
- Gallup Generic Congressional ballot (high turnout) – Republicans +13
- Real Clear Politics average US Senate polling, Dems 48, GOP 46 and 6 races toss-up. However, Republicans have leads in 4 of the Senate races (Nevada, Illinois, West Virginia & Colorado. Virtual tie in Washington state)
- The Cook Political Report - Not one held US Senate seat leans Democrat, the two listed as toss up are KY and MO where all other polling has the GOP candidate ahead. Democrats have 3 seats that either lean Republican or are solid republican. They have 9 seats that they presently hold that are toss-ups.
- Cook Political Report for the US House races – Democrats currently have 85 seats listed as Lean or Toss Up. Republicans currently have 7 seats listed as Lean or Toss Up.
- Larry Sabato presently predicts Republicans pick ups in 2010: US Senate +7-8, US House +47, Governors +8.
President Obama pleaded with a crowd of supporters last Thursday in Maryland to prove the pundits wrong. Actually his direct quote was, “I … I … I… I … I … I … I”m betting on you, not on them.” Obama implored the crowd, “Don’t make me look bad.” Mr. President, you have done a good enough job of that all by your self.
Hat Tip: Gateway Pundit
Desperate acts from a desperate President and a desperate party. Remember in November!
2010 Midterm Elections:More Bad News for Democrats, CBS Polls Shows Republican Gains in Generic Congressional Poll
Grim polling data for Democrats …
Just 25 days out from the 2010 midterm elections and the Democrats have more bad polling news. According to a new CBS poll, 45% now state they will vote for the GOP in this years midterm election, while only 37% say they will vote for Democrats. This represents a 6% gain for Republicans over Democrats since last month.
Republicans have widened their lead against Democrats among likely voters in the generic ballot for the House of Representatives by six points since last month, a new CBS News Poll reports.
Republicans now hold an eight point lead over Democrats in the generic ballot, with 45 percent of likely voters saying they would support the Republican candidate for the House, and 37 percent saying they would support the Democrat. Last month Republicans led Democrats by a margin of only 2 points, with 40 percent saying they would vote for a Republican and 38 percent saying they would vote for a Democrat.
As the elections get closer, it is rather interesting how more truthful the polls become. No one in the end wants to have skewed results, even if they did most of the year leading up to the elections. This CBS poll is no different. They are all starting to look the same, which spells doom for Democrats.
What is the Democrats worst nightmare this election cycle … the economy and Obama’s poor job of handling it. As this CBS poll further points out, Obama’s poll numbers on handling the economy are dismal and lower than last month. Only 38% approve of Obama’s handling of the economy, while 50% oppose. This poll was taken before the September job numbers which were again a disaster.
… his ratings on the economy are lower than ever before: 38 percent of respondents approved of his handling of the issue, while 50 percent disapproved. Last month, 41 percent approved, and 51 percent disapproved.
As CBS cannot fudge the hideous poll numbers anymore for Obama or Democrats, they look to go after the Tea Party instead as seen at News Busters. How original, more bias in the liberal MSM.
However, as much as the MSM and Democrats want to spin it just 25 days from the 2010 midterm elections, there is no resurgence in Democrat enthusiasm. Try as Obama might in begging the LEFT to the polls, the answer is no. Republicans by a wide margin look to head to the polls in 2010 and Independents favor the GOP by a 20% margin as well.
But while Democrats have lately been making widespread efforts to diminish the so-called “enthusiasm gap” between Republican and Democratic voters, the poll, which was conducted from October 1 – 5, indicates that the gap has in fact expanded. Sixty percent of Republicans said they were more enthusiastic than usual about voting this year, while only 40 percent of Democrats said the same. Last month, 47 Democrats and 58 percent of Republicans said they were more excited than usual to vote.
At forty-nine percent, Independents are now more enthusiastic than Democrats, the poll indicates.
But according to the poll, Independents are largely dissatisfied with their choices in the upcoming election: While they favor Republicans by a 20 point margin, 61 percent of Independents polled said they wished there were other options on the ballot.
Trouble in Paradise for Pelosi and Democrats …
According to an article by The Hill, US Representative Gene Taylor would like to see Democrat Ike Skelton of Missouri replace Nancy Pelosi as Speaker next year. Many conservative Democrats, if there is a such thing anymore in the Democrat party, would like to see a similar change occur as a move away from the far left leaning Nancy Pelosi. However, the American voters have a change in mind of their own, a switch from Democrat Speaker Pelosi to the Republicans after they take over the US House of Representatives in this years 2010 midterm election.
It was not too long ago following the 2008 elections that Democrats had an overwhelming majority in the House. Since then it has been a disaster as once presented with this majority, they went against the will of the people. Even within their own ranks, there are rumblings. Now they are faced with a midterm election where they could lose seats of epic and historic proportion.
Nancy Pelosi, too liberal for Democrats
Taylor told The Hill that he’d like to see Skelton, a Missouri Democrat and chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, succeed Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) if Democrats retain a slimmer hold on the House after the November elections.
Delusional: Nancy Pelosi States Democrats will Retain the US House of Representatives in 2010 Midterm Elections
Hmm, wanna bet.
Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has stated that Democrats will hold on to control of the majority in the US House of Representatives following the 2010 midterm elections. Well, what else would one expect her to say, we will lose and I will be out of a job as House speaker? San Fran Nan stated that Democrats would take the House in 2010 and “your little dog too”.
Nancy Pelosi to Democrats, “Remain calm, all is well …”
When asked whether she feared the political climate has changed enough that she may lose her post as Speaker of the House, Pelosi admitted the game has changed since the 2008 election, but predicted that Democrats will hold onto their majority through November’s midterm elections.
GOP ahead in Generic Congressional Ballot …
According to the most recent Gallup poll,the GOP is back in the lead in the Generic Congressional Ballot by a 48% to 43% margin. However, what may be the biggest concern to Democrats and candidates running in this years 2010 midterm elections is the wide margin that Republicans have in voter enthusiasm. Although the Gallup poll has been erratic of late, one thing is for certain as the Weekly Standard points out … “the GOP has a huge lead among independent voters”.
Registered-voter preferences for Congress since the beginning of August have averaged 48% for Republican candidates and 43% for Democratic candidates, identical to this week’s results. While there have been a few instances in recent months when the Republicans were not ahead to at least some degree — including in mid-July, when the Democrats were up by six percentage points, and last week, when the parties were tied at 46% — the broad picture has generally been positive for the Republicans.
Rasmussen has Republicans out ahead of Democrats in the Generic Congressional Ballot by 9% points, 47% to 38%. How will this andvoter enthusiasm play into the close races where Democrat incumbents are not at the 50% threshold and the undecided vote could sway to the new candidate and swing the election?
Real Clear Politics average polling has the GOP up by a 7.8% margin. That is considered a huge margin when one factors in it si an average of numerous polls, all showing Republicans with a commanding lead in the Generic Congressional ballot.
