Posted on 05/05/2014 4:08:31 PM PDT by ScamFix
10% swing in months towards Republicans. Chart shows twice as many can not find a job in 6 months, than for any prior President.
No Improvement in Perceptions of Job Market
Challenging Midterm Landscape for Democrats. With the midterm elections six months away, Democrats are burdened by an uneven economic recovery and a stubbornly unpopular health care law. Perhaps equally important, Barack Obamas political standing is in some respects weaker than it was at a comparable point in the 2010 campaign, which ended with the Republicans gaining a majority in the House.
A national survey by the Pew Research Center and USA TODAY, conducted April 23-27 among 1,501 adults (including 1,162 registered voters), finds that 47% of registered voters support the Republican candidate in their district or lean Republican, while 43% favor the Democratic candidate or lean Democratic. The trend over the past six months in the so-called generic ballot shows that Democrats have lost ground. In October, Democrats held a six-point lead (49% to 43%) in midterm voting preferences.
While a majority of voters (54%) say that Barack Obama will not be a factor in their vote this fall, more (26%) see their vote as a vote against the president than for him (16%). In February 2010, 24% of voters saw their vote as for Obama while about as many (20%) considered it a vote against him.

Don’t count out the Republican ability set up a circular firing squad.
The only disaster will be if the Right doesn’t take the opportunity to take down at least 80% of the $4 trillion government-zilla which otherwise will chew America up and spit it out.
Pew Poll, 2014 Will Be Disaster For Democrats
(1) I’ll believe it when I see it.
(2) There’s still plenty of time for the republicans to put on a clown show.
I noticed a slight dip in the gas prices. Historically, gas prices should be going up as the Summer gets closer. I’ll throw it out, is it manipulation for the November elections to help Dems?
And looky here...
“Lower gas prices on the horizon”
With liberals in charge of 90% of the mass media I don’t put much credence in numbers in early May.
The mass media can react in a 24 hour period of time to inform over half the nation of its opinions and talking points.
The new media and talk radio can reach a small percentage of the nation (10% at most) but it probably requires a 72-96 hour turn-around.
The liberals believe they can turn public opinion around in 60 days or less.
The Indiana Primary is tomorrow.
I’m working it in Indianapolis, and it is expected to be DEAD SLOW.
No competitive local seats, at all, and no party-endorsed candidates to go up against Andre’ Carson in IN-7.
One can dream...Hope & Change.
Oh I count on it!
They’ll be shooting each other and completely missing anyone in a position of power within the Obama administration.
The only other disaster would be for the Republicans to pass amnesty which would makes us the minority forever. The idiots obviously don’t know this.
Carson’s seat is guaranteed for as long as the corrupt cryto-commie muslim wants it. Good luck at the polls tomorrow. Been there and done that. It’s excrutiating around 3:00p.m.
They couldn’t get enough “R’s” to fill the slots in Marion County, so I’m heading down.
More to say I’ve done it, than for the money, that’s for sure!!
“Carsons seat is guaranteed for as long as the corrupt cryto-commie muslim wants it.”
Never in my life have I seen a Congressman from a major city appear LESS on TV than Carson. I doubt he gives the locals more than one interview a year, IF THAT.
If people knew who and what he really is, they would vote him out in a heartbeat. That’s the value of being protected by the media, skin color, and SEIU, I guess.
No one in local media wants to chance wrecking their careers over it.
No. But Boehner did just appoint Gowdy, a competent, no, magnificent prosecutor.
McCain, BTW, was just on Greta mumbling about how Gowdy was just like Graham, like there’s some mentorship going on there
Gowdy is one of those who knows across the aisle crap is crap at this point.
(I think he’s pro amnesty, oh well)
He’ll go after this- already has. Did Boehner appoint him because he knows now there’s something there? Or because he knows his brand is done?
If the Dems’ poll numbers get much worse, it will be impossible for the GOP to save them.
“Dont count out the Republican ability set up a circular firing squad.”
If you republican nominee does not agree with you 100% of the time, it is your duty to vote third party or stay at home.
“(1) Ill believe it when I see it.
(2) Theres still plenty of time for the republicans to put on a clown show.”
I totally understand your sentiment, and usually share it, but in this case there is precedent, it was done in 2010.
Even if Republicans gain the Senate and extend their majority in the House, they MUST be kept honest by the American people. Elections are only part of the work
Republicans won’t win anything if they pass immigration and do nothing to stop Obama’s global warming policies from taking effect....and nothing to stop Obamacare.
I live north of Indy in existing/proposed Windfarm country.
The elections here are probably going to set records this year. Democrats are joining Republicans in trying to oust the (R) commissioners and County Council members who are in the back pockets of the Wind Industry.
I grew up in Indy. My parents hated Dick Lugar’s Unigov but it kept Marion County Republican 30-40 years longer than it otherwise would have been. That era is coming to a close. Not having enouh Republican poll workers is evidence of that. It’s good to be in Hamilton County where the dems can only dream of stealing an election.
... Oh, 'Transgendered Rights'? Got it.
Az Wildkitten, StayTrue is joking about that, if you didn’t otherwise catch it.
“Theres still plenty of time for the republicans to put on a clown show.”
Yep, the amnesty clown show is starting.
Hopefully you don't, but you may have to choose between the two because there is a lot of debate on the Right about amnesty. But there is NO debate (or certainly should not be) about the imminent threat the $4 trillion unconstitutional government represents to our lives, freedoms, future, and way of life.
The Right can and should unite around the SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT political issue facing us right now. The Left and their MSM minions would love to see the Right shoot each other and go down in flames over amnesty. The one thing they don't want to see the Right do is unite against big government. Look how the 2012 debates went for example. The "moderators" hardly ever if at all chose a question about the problems with big government and taxes and if a candidate brought it up anyway, they would steer away from the big government issue as quickly as possible. The MSM simply doesn't talk about it. But they'll engage the Right night and day on the amnesty thing or just about any other subject.
Why is amnesty discussed more on the Right than the government beast poised to destroy America? Because the MSM talks about amnesty and other peripheral stuff all the time. But they DON'T talk about the size government and how our freedoms are being taken away on almost a daily basis. After all, what good is it to be a majority in a collectivist state?
The Right needs to get real clear on this. If they get an anti-amnesty guy who's soft on radically cutting government, we're done. If they get a pro-amnesty guy who is committed to radically cutting government and taxes, we're not done. We have a chance to live in a free country and live to see another day or era of freedom, regardless of the racial mix.
The Right needs to decide that if we can get both fine, but the priority must be saving our country by radical liposuction surgery on the government beast and stuffing it back into its constitutional cage where it belongs.
Two words: VOTER FRAUD. It doesn’t matter who votes. All that matters is who counts the votes. (paraphrasing Stalin)
I see “unexpected” Democrat victories all over the place, especially in states where Dems control the voting machines.
FYI, the sentence above was in the wrong paragraph. So the third and second to last paragraphs should have read...

Still plenty of time for a Republican to be found waking up with a dead girl or a live boy.
“I see unexpected Democrat victories all over the place, especially in states where Dems control the voting machines.”
I’m thinking that it would be difficult in most national elections for them to muster more than 5-7% fraud, at best. I believe that the margins will be greater than that. It is not a good idea to commit that kind of blatant fraud and lose, because then you don’t control the investigation, either.
Is it a disaster solely if they lose their seats in Congress? Or is it a disaster only if that happens and Nancy the P and Harry the Dingy climb to the top of the Washington Monument insisting they can fly?
The biggest obstacle Republicans have is the news media and the RNC. The biggest obstacle Dems have it their record.
If RNC was ever run by someone trying to win, it would be a different story.
This magic negro and his lackeys sure have done a grand job a screwing EVERYTHING they’ve touched.
Great job there poser.
>>It is not a good idea to commit that kind of blatant fraud and lose, because then you dont control the investigation, either.
What investigation? If them Dems commit massive voter fraud and lose, the media will declare that the election is over and any investigation will be the evil GOP punishing the losers for even trying to win. The sheeple will agree and demand that we “Move On”.
If the Dems win by massive voter fraud, then the media will declare that it was “irregular, but not a crime that is worthy of talking about.....ever.” The sheeple will agree and demand that we “Move On”.
5-7% in a dozen critical states is all it takes to win an election and control of the Senate in the computer-controlled, poll-driven electoral process in Corporate America. Note how the people are herded into two equal-sized camps in every election, with each party positioning themselves to control “almost” 50% of the people, with those key “undecideds” being the only battleground. “Undecideds” is politico-code for the media-controlled voters and systemic fraud that the Republi-Crat party uses to make sure that elections always move the Progressive ball down the field.
Lets think about this.
1. Voter fraud since the time Democrats were murdering blacks in white hoods has always been primarily done by Democrats.
2. The news media give Ds a 10-15% advantage every election.
3. What has RNC ever done about 1+2?
My conclusion RNC is under control of DNC or so other entity that wants Democrats to win.
