POLL: GOP could lose House in 2014
MSNBC ^ | 2:32 PM on 10/06/2013 | Meredith Clark

Posted on 10/07/2013 4:53:25 AM PDT by granada

Obstructionism may play well for House Republicans in safely red districts, but a poll done this week suggests that the government shutdown may actually hurt Representatives in competitive districts. In a poll conducted in 24 House districts over Wednesday, Thursday and Friday by Public Policy Polling, registered voters in 17 of those districts favored a generic Democratic challenger over the incumbent Republican. The Democrats would need to win 17 seats in the 2014 midterm elections to take control of the House. Republicans have felt the brunt of the public’s anger for the standoff over the government shutdown. Polls released last week by CBS and Fox showed that Americans blame Republicans for the shutdown by a wide margin. Progressive organizations like MoveOn.org, which paid for the PPP poll, are already preparing to make a push to retake the house, although the general election is still more than a year away.

MSNBC citing a PPP poll saying that Republicans are doomed.

My only response is to yawn and say “How original!”

It is meant to scare the wussy Republicans on the CR and debt ceiling. The MSM is getting real scared as the clock keeps ticking on Obummer’s most recent ‘red line.’

That “generic Democratic challenger” would have to defend Obama’s policies. As soon as they get identified with keeping grandpa out of HIS war memorial, “generic” has a face and will lose.

This would be the same Public Policy group that did a poll on the Colorado statehouse critter that showed she was going to be recalled, but they withheld the poll and did the mea culpas?

I think there is some truth in this poll.

This happens when you lose your base.

Don't think much of it from some of the comments I've seen on various forums/articles in the last day or two on ObamaCare and the pettyness of the shutdown closings. People are really getting po'd out here in the hinterland.

Especially the shutdown stuff. Some of it is just silly and the average American is well aware of it. Shutting down viewing stands so people don't get a roadside view of Mt. Rushmore? Shutting down parking at Mt. Vernon?

Silly.

But I think the bigger deal long term is gonna be Ocare. Sticker shock is setting in and even lefties are coming to the conclusion that this might not be such a hot idea and this is gonna cost the average American a LOT more bucks for a lot fewer services between now and the 2014 election. I think it's gonna blow up on the progs REAL bad! And they cant blame the right wing for it either, It's all the left wing that's costing them money and jobs for far fewer services.

And there's a silliness component to OCare as well. Men required to sign up for plans that have Maternity care? OB care? Abortion coverage?

Silly.

In politics you can get away with being a tyrant. You can even get away with being stupid. But being a laughing stock is usually fatal.

EVERYONE will understand the disaster which is Obamacare within 12 months.

Because the Republicans are now clearly identified as having opposed it, the 2014 mid-terms will be the Democraps biggest defeat in history.

I followed the links until I got the same answer as you. MoveOn.org...really unbiased if you aks me/s.

The other thing I found equally disgusting was the fat assed 79 year old ‘lady’ with the placard telling Congress to “do it’s job” and emblazoned with the Obama sunrise mark of the Devil. The bitch couldn’t even protest standing up...had to have her own lawn chair to ‘protest.’

The problem now is that the Democrats have met their worst nightmare: Republican Leaders that are now deathly afraid that the Tea Party can unseat them in their own primaries for 2014. They are scared to death of this because it forces Boehner, et al to have to stand up to Obama and take this shutdown farther than Obama and crew want.

I’m inclined to agree with you on that.

The insane ugliness and absurdity of the Dems words and actions right now is IMO a sign of panic setting in. I could be wrong, we are dealing with an organization of sadistic sociopaths and pathological liars, which does muddy the waters somewhat.

A PPP propaganda poll, paid for by Moveon.org and touted by msnbc, how much more neutral could it get?

It's like polling in the ghetto and axing how obama is doing his yob.

MSNBC touts this unreliable poll but ignores the Gallup poll showing Obama at one of his lowest favorable ratings ever.

Nice reporting.

There will be no amnesty (at least before the 2014 election). Current events have taken care of that. There won’t be enough time left and then we are off to the 2014 races.

The dilemma is: do we anger the big money donors and have less money for attack ads and robo-calls, or do we anger the base and have no votes at all.

I understand through a little bird, that the REPS are sitting on quite a bit of Benghazi and IRS information until after the first of the year. They want to make sure they have the full attention of the people leading into the fall election, making these issues front and center. Don’t know for sure but sounds pretty reasonable.

The communists are scared to death that they may win the House in 2014 and America will become just like North Korea, Cuba and the old Soviet Union. There will be no one around to prevent them from destroying the country.

Benghazi is pretty much irrelvant at this point. It’s been too long and there were “only” four deaths. That combined with how the MSM will carry the Administration’s water in it means any attempt to sway undecided voters isn’t going to go anywhere.

The best that can be hoped for is that a Democrat in the 2016 primaries might be able to damage Hillary with it.

Same is pretty much true with the IRS. The public just doesn’t care, and won’t care. The potential upside tho is that it can probably be leveraged to tick off and motivate the base, including the various Conservative orgs that were targeted.

If reigning in the tyranny of an increasingly rogue government is too offense for the sheep, then are they worth representing, anyway.

Sometimes... the right thing must be done, politics be damned. We’re all screwed for the most part anyway, so at least make a stand.

Yes. I think the robocalls actually hurt the candidate. Attack ads do not work on people who already made up their minds.

If that's the case, it shouldn't have sat on anything pertaining to Benghazi or IRS. The further away from the time at which these issues were hot, the less the public will care. Most Americans barely understand what a "Benghazi" is, much less glean anything as to why it matters. As for the IRS issue, the old self-preservation attitude is in play here. So long as the IRS is only targeting the hated "teabaggers," they don't feel any sense of danger. Sorry... I just don't have the same level of confidence in voters some do, anymore.
