The Democrat's Horror: Almost ONE HUNDRED Dem seats in play in '10
data from Cook Partisan Voting Index | 8-18-09 | Dangus

Posted on 08/18/2009 8:30:21 PM PDT by dangus

The Democrats attained domination over the US House of Representatives not by convincing America that conservative beliefs were wrong, but by individualizing each Republican incumbent as part of a block of corruption and political tone-deafness. Dozens won Republican-leaning district while promising to vote conservatively. The Republican losers weren't so much those in the most moderate-to-left-leaning districts, but those to whom insinuations of scandal, incompetence and detachment most easily stuck. The result is an astonishing number of Democrats in otherwise Republican-leaning districts.

The Cook Political Report publishes the Cook Partisan Voting Index, measuring whether districts are more Democratic or more Republican than average. An incredible seventy-two Republican-leaning districts are currently held by Democrats. Twenty-seven more have Democratic margins of three percent or less. That's a total of ninety-nine districts which could be in play in a Republican tide.

The worst possible thing that could happen for these ninety-nine Democrats would be for the Democratic leadership to push through a health-care bill that would enrage the majority of voters. If that happened, their particular stance on health care wouldn't matter, only their vote for Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. And that's exactly what the Democratic leadership is planning on doing.

D+3: 11 districts

D+2: 7 districts

D+1: 7 districts

D<1: 1 district

R<1: 3 districts

R+1: 7 districts

R+2: 10 districts

R+3: 4 districts

R+4: 5 districts

R+5 or more: 43 districts

Seats needed to win House: 40

Seats needed to reach '95 Republican dominance: 53

No horror.

They are condescending and arrogant because they have an ace up their sleeve:

Amnesty — spring/summer of 2010.

It’s sad that so many conservative leaning voters were suckered in recent elections. What were they thinking? A snake will always be a snake, even if it promises to be an Elephant.

This is excellent! We’re already seeing lifelong Democrats switching parties in droves. The gig is just about up, thankfully!

If they try that, people will burn down the capital with them in it. Plus, there wouldn’t be any way to get all those people voting by November.

I’m not one who got ‘suckered’ by Democrats, but frankly, we all got suckered by Republicans too and they paid for that at the ballot box.

"No horror. They are condescending and arrogant because they have an ace up their sleeve: Amnesty — spring/summer of 2010."

Rasmussen poll has 70% of Americans AGAINST amnesty. If Democrats try... it will BLOW up in their face.

Yeah, I love the fact that the pundits are calling Delaware’s Open Senate seat “safely Democratic,” even though the presumptive Democrat is losing to a Republican by more than 20 points. Don’t count your chickens when the eggs are smashed all over the sidewalk.

Have you forgotten the Slick Willy trick of using sporting stadiums?

File in one door.

Get sworn in at the middle.

File out the far door.

DNC voting booth right there. 10,000 voters at a clip.

Don’t doubt for a moment that a communist whose only achievement on his resume is “community organize” and Don of ACORN cannot make this happen.

What difference will it make?

If these leftists can ram amnesty through, they won’t have to worry about the moderates and independent and quasi-conservative Dems that voted in this shipload of rats.

They can smile and flip the bird to them and say, “What are you gonna do about it?”

They’ll have the votes they need in any key population areas.
