Why the people of the commonwealth would re-elect this idiot is beyond me.

Then again, there's NJ, MA, LA, NY, and on and on.

The state is largely Democrat -- two to one registration vs. Republican.

His district is largely rural and small town; his constituency mainly blue collar, senior citizens, lower middle class and the poor. And those all vote Dem. They also tend to vote for the guy they know, and they've known Murtha for decades.

Depending on which poll you believe, he is way ahead or Ms. Irey is slightly ahead. I don't believe in polls, but IMHO, it's going to be a tight race. Whether Ms. Irey actually does unseat Murtha is a toss-up, but it will be close.

The polls show ONLY 16% approve of the job congress is doing. But I think it was 70% approve of the job their own congresscritter is doing. Figure that one out.
