Dick Morris: Polls Show GOP Tilt
newsmax.com ^ | Sunday, Nov. 5, 2006 9:36 p.m. EST

Posted on 11/05/2006 7:16:11 PM PST by InvisibleChurch

The latest polls show a tilt to the Republicans, noted political strategist Dick Morris tells NewsMax exclusively.

Morris made the following observations late Sunday:

The Republicans will lose the House.

The Republicans will likely keep the Senate.

The GOP now has a lock on Tennessee, and four other states remain in contention: Montana, Missouri, Virginia and Rhode Island. The Democrats have to win all four to get control of the Senate. Morris says that is highly unlikely.

The latest voter trends suggest the Republicans may not face disaster. The most recent Pew poll has the generic Democratic vote up just 4 points over the Republican vote. Morris says the GOP has been closing an 8 to 9 point gap in the past week.

But Morris says other developments may help the Republicans, including the verdict against Saddam Hussein.

Morris indicates polling over the weekend will show if the GOP may be rebounding even more just a day before Election Day.

Stay tuned . . .

FOCUS ON THE HOUSE.

Only the GOP House is preventing amnesty right now.

Do whatever you can in vulnerable House districts to get the GOP candidate elected.

Over the years I have observed that the Toesucker shows great analysis but reaches the wrong conclusion (kinda like a calculus problem shown correctly, but with a subtraction error that makes the final result wrong).

This is encouraging. Thank you, Toesucker, for showing your work.

Dick Morris and Torie are just so fungible all of a sudden. That might have about a 12 hour half life, until Morris has a new epiphaney. If I had that many epiphanies, I would have terminal vertigo, rather than my current chronic condition, due to the side effects of certain legal drugs I take.

The generic across-the-board polls don't mean as much when we consider the gerrymandering that exists in all states that helps keep incumbents safe and the fact that Republicans in a close race or more likely actually to go to the polls.

Isn't Frist being replaced by Corker (or Ford)?

I thought he retired. I hope so, because "Frist You Magnificent Bastard" doesn't even pass the giggle test.

The Republicans will lose the House

Far from a foregone conclusion. Could happen. It's not inevitable. Before pushing the panic button, remember Dick Morris has spent the last 8 years getting it wrong. He predicted Hillary would not run for the Senate for one. Anyway, let's go to work to get out the vote.

Go to www.rnc.org and sign up to call 30 voters. Look for the link along the right hand side of the page. It's fun, easy and you can do that in less than an hour. Those calls made a huge difference in 2002 and 2004 and will again this time! Just use your free cell phone long distance tomorrow to make these calls! They give you the names, numbers and a script. People are friendly. Don't worry. Just go to work and we can win!

I have always thought the reason the DIMS want the house sooo bad is because it gives Hildabeast the election if the electoral college is tied. For this reason, we should fight to the end for every vote in the House. Look out for election fraud. You can count on it.

Exactly, Morris is very good at reading the goat entrails of a poll, and commenting on a polls bias, but his major conclusions are missing depth. He predicted a Kerry win for instance.

I think the reason for that is a lack of understanding how character and voting based on values means and works.

This is 100% true. I made calls this afternoon and will do so again tomorrow and Tuesday. It works and is actually alot of fun because you get to talk about what losers the dems are and most people you talk to agree.

Maybe some are saying this because it angers us so much that we get the vote out to prove it wrong.
