New England College Polling Center: Republican Scott Brown Leads In NH Senate Race Over Incumbent Democrat Jeanne Shaheen

Hmm … new poll has Brown ahead of Shaheen in NH Senate race …

In the most recent poll from the New England College Polling Center,  has Republican Scott Brown leading the incumbent Democrat Jeanne Shaheen for the US Senate seat in New Hampshire, 48.0% to 46.9%. The Brown lead is within the margin of error; however, trending into the lead in the final weeks before the November midterm elections is key. Breitbart.com discusses Brown’s hammering of Shaheen on being the same as Obama and too soft on immigration, too soft on ISIS and incompetent in their Ebola response. If the polls continue to trend toward Brown, currently Shaheen has a lead, the midterm elections could get really ugly for Democrats. Sorry, but partisan Democrat tracking polls do not count. If Democrats lose the Granite state, Senate Democrats could lose up to 8 or 9 seats in a wave election.

Brown_Shaheen_NH Senate Race

Hey New Hampshire … What can Brown do you you?

It comes after a brutal series of political bouts between Brown and Shaheen. Brown has hammered Shaheen and President Barack Obama for being too soft on immigration, creating national security and public health risks while ISIS terrorists surge into more power in the Middle East and Ebola runs rampant through Africa and has crossed into America due to Thomas Eric Duncan—the first case diagnosed in the U.S.—allegedly lying to immigration agents to get into the U.S. when asked if he had come in contact with the disease.

Interestingly, this new poll shows Brown has actually picked up a point and a half with women voters since the previous New England College poll on Oct. 3. The previous poll showed Brown getting 41.9 percent of female voters—while the new poll shows Brown getting 43.1 percent among female voters.

That’s significant because it suggests a series of Democratic Party and Shaheen campaign attacks on Brown in the vein of the infamous 2012 “war on women” have either fallen flat or backfired.

RUT-ROH … DSCC Pulls TV Advertising for Democrat Senate Challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes … VIDEO of Grimes – McConnell Senate Debate

Democrats waiving white flag in Kentucky Senate race …

Bad news for Democrats ahead of 2014 elections, the TV ads go dark from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee for Kentucky Democrat Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes.  Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has had a consistent lead in the polls and seems to be pulling away at the end, even after the DSCC has spent millions in ads. Put a fork in her, Grimes is done. In their Senate debate, challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes once again refused to answer the simple question of whether she voted for Barack Obama or not. She claimed her lack of a response was based on principle. I think we all know it was based on politics as Obama is very unpopular in the Blue Grass state and lost 60% to 38% to Romney in the 2012 presidential election.

After a significant investment in support of Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes, the DSCC had not reserved time for the final three weeks of the race and, as of today, is no longer on the air.
DSCC Goes Dark in Kentucky

“The DSCC has now spent more than 2 million in Kentucky and continues to make targeted investments in the ground game while monitoring the race for future investments, but is currently not on the air in the state,” a DSCC official told CQ Roll Call.

 CNN: The move comes as Democrats focus their resources on defending the party’s endangered incumbents. Senators

Democrats pulled their TV advertising in Kentucky from now through election day, leaving Senate hopeful Alison Lundergan Grimes without air support from the national party, which had invested heavily in trying to unseat the Senate’s top Republican.

It’s a sign of how stretched Democrats are in defending their own turf across the country that they can no longer afford to go on offense in the marquee race against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

But Grimes sources insist they’ll be fine on their own. The campaign, sources said, is flush with $4.4 million cash on hand — much more than other Democrats on the ballot this year.

“Money is not an issue in this campaign,” a Grimes source said.

Note to Grimes, yes money is the only thing in a campaign when you are the challenger and the Democrats have claimed they have more than the GOP and plan to carpet-bomb the airwaves with political ads.

Gallup Poll: Barack Obama 39% Approval – 56% Disapprove … Obama Dragging Down the Democrats Ahead of the 2014 Elections

BARACK OBAMA … THE TOXIC PRESIDENT.

Democrats have more to worry about than just voter turnout for the 2014 midterm election. The Obama wave that swept the Democrats into power is also going to be the tsunami that destroys them. Don’t look for President Barack Obama to be campaigning in any of the 2014 Senate battleground states from now until election day. According to the most recent Gallup poll,  3 day rolling average, Obama’s approval rating is at 39%, disapproval stands at 56%. It is not just one poll that has Obama in the 30 percent approval range, it is one of many including Reuters and Fox News. Is it any wonder why no Democrat candidate in a close race or any red state Senate Democrats want him any where near their campaigns?

Senate Democrat candidates in Alaska, Louisiana, South Dakota, Montana, Iowa, Arkansas, West Virginia, and Colorado find themselves in serious trouble with Obama no where to be found. Those Democrats that were swept into office on the coattails of the BS myth of “hope & Change” now find themselves at its backlash.

Michelle Obama Gaffe… Campains for Democrat Iowa Senate Candidate “Bruce Bailey” … Too Bad His Name is Bruce Braley

Michelle Obama’s Joe Biden moment …  Note to First Lady Michelle Obama, when campaigning for a candidate, know their name.

While campaigning in Des Moines, Iowa on Friday for Democratic Senate candidate Bruce Braley, Michelle Obama referred to him on at least seven occasions as Bruce “Bailey”. After repeating the Democrat candidates incorrect name and proving the wrong web site she was finally corrected by shouts from the audience.  One of the more ironic parts of Michelle Obama’s speech, seen HERE: 1:10 mark, was making her diatribe about her and Barack and her reminiscing about Iowa when her husband first ran for president. Imagine that, the Obama’s making the story all about them? She stated, “Because you all treated us like family and you didn’t even know us. You hosted us at house parties all across the states and i can remember almost every house I was in.” That’s interesting, she can remember the houses she was in, but not the Democrat candidates name she is campaigning for. Oops!!!

Michelle Obama also referred to Braley as a Marine Corps veteran. WRONG AGAIN!!! Bruce Brailey was never in the Marine Corps, his father was. However, the only name you really need to know in the Iowa Senate race is Republican candidate Joni Ernst, who actually is a member of the Army reserve and National Guard and likes “TO CUT PORK”.

FOX News:

While campaigning in Des Moines, Iowa Friday for Democratic Senate candidate Bruce Braley, she referred to him multiple times as “Bailey” before she was corrected by someone shouting from the audience.

The flub came despite a huge array of signs in the hall where she was speaking, all spelling Braley’s name correctly.

The first lady also referred to Braley as a Marine Corps veteran, which he is not. Braley’s staff said she meant to refer to his late father, Byard Braley, a Marine who fought at Iwo Jima.

Braley’s opponent in the Senate race, Republican Joni Ernst, is a member of the Army reserve and National Guard.

DEMOCRAT DODGEBALL … Democrat Senate Candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes Won’t Even Say If She Voted For Barack Obama

Why on earth would anyone from Kentucky vote for a candidate who could not answer just a simple question as, who did you vote for?

Hey Alison Lundergan Grimes, this is not supposed to be a trick question. Democrat Senate challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes continually evaded and dodged the “did you vote for Obama” question as she was looking to get the endorsement from the Louisville Courier-Journal editorial board.  As Patches O’Hoolihan would say, “If you can dodge a vote for Obama question, you can dodge a ball.”  Grimes is taking on Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in Kentucky. According to RCP,  McConnell is ahead by 3% points and the polls are all started to trend in his direction.

Kentucky Democratic Senate candidate Alison Grimes, who is hoping to unseat Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, refused today to say whether she voted for President Obama.

Grimes, who was seeking the endorsement from the Louisville Courier-Journal editorial board, repeatedly dodged the question.

Sure, it’s a sad commentary on Obama. But it is also, quite simply, one of the most craven performances I have ever seen on the campaign trail.

Why would a Democrat candidate just answer the question and say, yes I voted for Obama? She is a Democrat, who honestly thinks that she voted for John McCain in 2008 or Mitt Romney in 2012? However, this is the painful extent that Democrats are willing to go to distance themselves from Barack Obama and his toxic presidency.

Des Moines Register’s Iowa Poll: Republican Joni Ernst Leads Democrat Bruce Braley 44% to 38%

Des Moines Register’s new poll numbers are making Democrat Senate candidate  Bruce Braley squeal like a pig …

The Republican party needs a net pick up of six US Senate seats in the 2014 midterm elections. It appears now that they may have many different ways to gain that number, including a pick up in Iowa. The latest Des Moines Register Iowa poll has Republican Joni Ernst leading Democrat  Bruce Braley 44% to 38%. How bad is it for the Democrats and Braley in Iowa, Braley is not even winning his home district. Also, 2/3 of likely voters believe it is a problem that he missed a large percentage of Veterans Affairs Committee meetings in the U.S. House and 59% think his role in crafting Obamacare is a problem. Braley is also polling poorly with rural voters as only 15% support him compared with 58% for Ernst.

The Democratic U.S. Senate candidate is 6 points behind his GOP rival, Joni Ernst, according to The Des Moines Register’s new Iowa Poll of likely voters.

Ernst leads 44 percent to 38 percent in a race that has for months been considered deadlocked. She leads nearly 4-1 with rural voters, and is up double digits with independents.

“Very interesting, and good news not just for Ernst but also for the GOP’s chances of taking the U.S. Senate,” said national political prognosticator Larry Sabato of “Sabato’s Crystal Ball.”

Just seven months ago, political analysts considered Braley almost a shoo-in for a seat held for 30 years by liberal Democrat Tom Harkin.

Latest NBC Marist Poll Shows GOP Opening Up Leads in Key Senate Races Ahead of 2014 Midterms

Republicans need a net pickup of 6 Senate seats in the 2014 midterm elections in order to wrestle control away from Harry Reid and Democrats.

The GOP need a net pickup of 6 Senate seats in order to gain control of the US Senate. A recent NBC/Marist poll shows that although Democrat incumbent Sen. Mark Udall is still leading in Colorado, Republicans are surging in the key “red” state races in Kentucky and Arkansas. US Rep. Tom Cotton (R-AR) leads incumbent Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor by five points among likely voters, 45% to 40%. Although Kentucky is not a pickup for the GOP, some Democrats have thought that it could be a possible loss for the GOP. However, that does not appear to be the case. In reality, the GOP already is at a +3 as Republicans will pick up seats in the open Senate races formerly held by Democrats in Montana, West Virginia and South Dakota.

Other Senate seats currently held by Democrats that are now in play include Alaska, Louisiana, North Carolina, Iowa, New Hampshire and Michigan.  My person opinion is that the GOP with have a net pick up of 7, possibly 8 Senate seats. If all things go right, it could be 9, but my gut feeling says this will not be a wave election like in 2010 because too many establishment Republicans are running and the establishment appears to have no clue that their conservative base is what wins elections. Not being Democrat light.

US Rep. Cotton (R-AR) calls Democrat Sen. Pryor a good Obama foot soldier, who was the deciding vote for Obamacare and who has voted with Obama 93% of the time.

Republican Senate candidates have opened up leads in the key states of Arkansas and Kentucky, putting them in a strong position to win back the U.S. Senate, according to new NBC News/Marist polls.

But another NBC/Marist poll shows Democrats holding on in the blue state of Colorado, suggesting a limit to the gains that Republicans could make in November.

In Arkansas, Rep. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., leads incumbent Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor by five points among likely voters, 45 percent to 40 percent, with two minor candidates getting a combined 5 percent.

In Kentucky, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., is ahead of Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes by eight points among likely voters, 47 percent to 39 percent, with Libertarian David Patterson getting another 8 percent.

And in Colorado, incumbent Sen. Mark Udall, D-Colo., is up by six points over Rep. Cory Gardner, 48 percent to 42 percent.

Barack Obama’s 2014 Battle Ground State Political No Fly Zone … Senate Elections

Barack Obama’s toxic presidency could cost Democrats control of the US Senate in 2014.

In 2008 many Democrats were swept into office on Barack Obama’s coattails like Mark Begich in Alaska, Kay Hagen in North Carolina, Jeff Merkley in Oregon, Al Franken in Minnesota, Jeanne Shaheen in New Hampshire, and Democrat victories in Red states like Max Baucus in Montana, Tim Johnson in South Dakota, Mark Pryor in Arkansas and Mary  Landrieu in Louisiana. However, that was then, this is now and 2014 presents the Democrat party with a Barack Obama “no-fly” zone to stay away from Senate races. From Obamamessiah to the toxic president in just 6 short years. Other than going to maybe Minnesota or Oregon, Obama will be a no show in the rest of the states. However, voters do not let that fool you … all of the Democrats above are fully behind Barack Obama’s agenda and have voted for Obamacare and illegal’s getting amnesty. Once the election is over, all of the above Democrat Senators will go right back to doing Obama’s bidding.

US Senate

In an election that Republicans want to make all about President Barack Obama, the White House is determined to make him all but disappear in the battleground states that matter.

The White House is putting the finishing touches on a post-Labor Day schedule that will send the president to states where he’s still popular, such as: Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Illinois and California, Obama officials and Democratic operatives said this week.

But in the red states that will determine control of the Senate, Obama will remain scarce. That means no personal campaign visits to states like Arkansas, Alaska, Louisiana and North Carolina. He may do some targeted outreach through robocalls, digital ads and conference calls, but the campaign plan is clear: Stay away from candidates he’s already hurting.

Obama’s no-fly zone for certain Senate campaigns reflects the deep concern among Democrats about his drag on the national ticket. Obama can’t seem to get his poll numbers out of the low 40s, he’s struggled through an endless stream of foreign policy crises, and he’s the last person that many candidates want to be forced to defend on the campaign trail.

There are 36 U.S. Senate seats up for election in 2014. Of those seats, 15 are currently held by Republicans and 21 are held by Democrats. The GOP need a net pick up of 6 seats to retain control of the Senate. The control of the Senate will be determined by the below 13 states: 1 incumbent Republican, 1 open Republican, 6 Incumbent Democrat and  5 open Democrat.

  1. AK: Begich (D)
  2. AR: Pryor (D)
  3. CO: Udall (D)
  4. GA: Open (R)
  5. IA: Open (D)
  6. KY: McConnell (R)
  7. LA: Landrieu (D)
  8. MI: Open (D)
  9. NC: Hagan (D)
  10. NH: Shaheen (D)
  11. MT: Open (D)
  12. SD: Open (D)
  13. WV: Open (D)

Poll: Republicans Gov. Brian Sandoval Beats Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid 53% to 43% in Hypothetical 2016 Nevada Senate Matchup

ARE HARRY REID’S DAYS IN THE US SENATE NUMBERED?

In a recent Harper Polling survey, the poll shows that in a hypothetical match 2016 match-up for the US Senate for Nevada Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval handily defeat Democrat Majority Leader Harry Reid by 10 points, 53% to 43%. The poll also showed that Gov. Sandoval destroys Reid among independents, 65%-28%. OUCH. Have the citizens of Nevada finally grown weary of Dingy Harry? One has to wonder whether the people of Nevada will have to wait until 2016 to rid themselves of Reid. If the GOP does not find a way to blow it, Republicans could take back the Senate in 2014 and Reid would lose is Majority Leader role. One would then have to ponder whether 74 year old Reid would stay in the Senate.

Full poll results can be read HERE (pdf)

Harry Reid

Gov. Brian Sandoval leads Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid by 10 percentage points in a hypothetical 2016 U.S. Senate matchup, according to a new poll that represents the first public release of results in this potential race.

The survey, conducted by Harper Polling earlier this week, also shows, as other surveys do, Sandoval cruising to re-election (56-34) over Bob Goodman. The robo-survey of 602 statewide voters has a margin of error of 4 percent.

Sandoval crushes Reid among independents, 65-28. Reid’s 55 percent unfavorable rating is all but fatal — you know, just as it was in 2010.

The NRO reminds us that Harry Reid has proven to be resilient against past challengers like in 2010 when Reid seemed vulnerable, but eventually defeated Republican candidate Sharron Angle by nearly 6 percentage points. However, popular Governor Brian Sandoval is not Sharron Angle. But if it does get to a 2016 Senate race between  Sandoval and Reid and the polling is still as one sided toward the Nevada Governor, look for Reid to retire, he will be 80, rather than losing in an embarrassing swan song.

Laura Ingraham Comes to Nashville, TN to Support Joe Carr for US Senate … Beat Lamar Rally … Retire Lamar, Vote for Joe Carr!!!

Laura Ingraham rocks the Millennium Maxwell House. 

Conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham came to Nashville, Tennessee in support of  Joe Carr in his efforts to defeat establishment GOP US Senator Lamar Alexander in the upcoming Republican primary. At the “Beat Lamar Rally” Ingraham held nothing back and blasted the out of touch incumbent Alexander as a senator who has lost touch with Tennessee in front of a crowd between 600 and 700 people. Laura Ingraham stated out with the old and in with the new as she compared Alexander to an old sweater. Ingraham looks to do for Carr what she did for Tea Party challenger David Brat in his shocking primary victory over Majority Leader Eric Cantor in Virginia.

TENNESSEE … ITS TIME TO TEACH ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICANS AND THE GOP PARTY A LESSON THAT WILL NOT SOON FORGET!!!

In a speech that seemed to tap into the audience’s deep-seated concerns over immigration and the pace of change in the country, Ingraham spoke for 45 minutes to a packed house at the Millennium Maxwell House Hotel that attended a “Beat Lamar” rally for Carr.

Comparing U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander to an old sweater, a hooked fish, beige wallpaper and a baseball player who has struck out, Ingraham urged listeners to believe Carr, a three-term state representative from Lascassas, can upset the incumbent senator in the Aug. 7 Republican primary.

She said Alexander has failed to stand up to liberals and Democrats, whom she said were more concerned with reshaping America than standing up for their interests.

“I’m here to tell you that he still is not hearing you,” she said.

Breitbart.com: Laura Ingraham at Rally for Joe Carr: Lamar Alexander is Old, Out of Touch, In With the New

“I say this, and I mean it: Lamar Alexander, he’s probably not an evil guy, he probably doesn’t hate the Tea Party, I don’t think he knows the Tea Party, I don’t think that’s what he’s about, I really don’t,” she said.

On amnesty, she explained, Alexander was wrong on the number one issue in the country, citing the recent Gallup poll showing that the issue was at the top of voters’ concerns. She criticized Alexander for supporting the Senate “Gang of Eight” immigration bill, working with Senate Democrats like Sens. Chuck Schumer (NY) and Dick Durbin (IL).

“What planet are you living on, are you that naive, that tired, or are you that bought off?” she asked, as the delighted crowd applauded.

Ingraham noted that the modern left was filled with “utter distain” for conservatives and their values, and said today’s Democrats weren’t the moderate Democrats of Alexander’s era.

“They think you are more dangerous any day of the week than ISIS or Al-Qaeda,” she said as the crowd booed.

Ingraham encouraged all voters in Tennessee to work hard for Carr in the remaining days of the election to send a loud message to the Washington establishment.

“We have to grab the establishment by the lapels and say very forcefully — No. You. Won’t,” she said.
