"Old news. Let them poll now after the al-qaeda has attempted to take out the five planes."

"Bingo!"

Between Lieberman and this September 11, Part II, it's a whole new ball game.

Dick "toesucker" Morris was on O'Reilly and said the same thing.

Here in Ohio I have heard more than one Republican talk about not voting for that RINO DeWine. He votes with the Dems most of the time anyway - "So what is the difference?" -some are saying... Wish there were a good alternative to vote for instead of DeWine.

"Polls, shmolls. We'll see what happens in November 2008."

That is the only poll that counts, after all! Well said!

I think the events around the plane bombing plot will change the dynamic. We used the wire tapping and other tehcniwues the dems detest to help the Brits uncover this plot.

The dems will sound foolish bitching about this.

Just asking...but, you think the Democrats are going to be more fiscally responsible...offer more support to the President...openly and eagerly support the war effort?

You also think the Dims will not waste time supporting things like flag amendments...but, will get right down to really serious business...like maybe raising taxes and oh, that one little worrisome matter of impeaching the President?!? Now, did I understand you correctly, just checking?

As was discovered in 2000, 2002, and 2004 the percent of truly Independent voters is a mere 5-7% . . . Just as it was in 2004, the 2006 election will be determined by the effectiveness of the Republican and Democrat 'Get Out the Vote' (GOTV) efforts!

Several months back DeWhine won his primary against a good conservative challenger. DeWhine got ~76% of the vote. The conservative challenger got about ~15% of the vote.

Maybe you heard two?

I suspect you are exactly right, and don't share the general glee around here at the Lamont/Lieberman Primary. A LOT of people turned out for what was, after all, just a Primary.

" As the midterm elections approach, voters say they are much more likely to support a challenger over the incumbent candidate"

Ok.
Is that why the RATS voted Lieberman out?
When did Lieberman become Republican then? :)

As an Ohioan you could answer #43, DrDeb, with more credibility than could I, a Texan...

Yes, but the problem is with the ersatz independent, who say they are independent, but vote GOP usually. Not this time, at this time.

Yea, and Lieberman was going to lose by 13% until the day before the election and then it was 6% but it ended being 4% then the twist is he's expected to win by 20% as an Independent. If someone can figure out the method to a pollster's madness then I would love to know as long as it doesn't require a poll to figure it out.

It's just my opinion, but I'm convinced Lieberman would have won handily if he hadn't broadcast his intent to run even if he lost the Primary. I can see that easily swinging more votes than he lost by.

Can't recall who but someone said Sherrod Brown's voting record is WORSE than Dennis Kuchinich's. Almost unbelievable, but Brown IS truly awful.

Pollsters/political pundits were saying the same thing in 2002 and 2004!

I saw that report on Fox. Yada yada, who cares. Outside of Bush telling it like it is, the House ain't doing anything, anyway.

Just, keep Shrillary out of my face!

Pollsters are less fickle than the consumers of polls; we love them when they look good for us, dismiss them as meaningless when they don't.
