Skip to comments.Poll surprise of the day: Barney Frank in trouble?
Posted on 09/22/2010 11:29:10 AM PDT by Lou Budvis
The Sean Bielat campaign has declared themselves within reach of unseating Barney Frank in Massachusetts 4th CD, one of the presumed safest districts for Democrats in the nation. The poll, conducted for the campaign by OnMessage, shows Frank falling below the 50% mark despite the D+14 composition of his constituency. Bielat comes within nine points, even though the poll shows that he still badly trails in name recognition. The memo from the pollster explains that Bielat could shock the world on November 2nd:

That certainly is a pole surprise...
Let's make it happen, MA. Barney is a national joke, and he has to go.
Unlikely, but truly cool if he is defeated.
Perhaps there are enough Christian prayers being said and He wants to give us another chance. We can only hope that is true.
This could be interesting. If Sarah and O’Donnald both were to make a short campain trip to Sean Bielat and announce a one day money bomb for Bielat, this could put this seat into play. If it did come into play, this would really shake the Dems and could possibly hold off any further bad legislation till the elections.
Check out his bio:
Major, U.S Marine Corps Reserve
Independent Consultant. Helped client companies build market strategies
Program Manager, iRobot Corporation. Led $100 million, 100 person business line providing life-saving defense robots used to destroy roadside bombs in Iraq and Afghanistan
Chairman, NATO Industrial Armaments Group. Led an international team studying the potential for use of advanced reconnaissance technology in urban warfare
Management Consultant, Mckinsey & Company
Lieutenant, U.S. Marine Corps (active duty)
Poor choice of words, that.
Pole & Bwarney Fwank shouldn't be mentioned in the same story.
...here folks, chew on Barney Fwank while Odumbo pushes forward. Fwank will gather the headlines and be put through the gentle cycle and wind up with a great pension and step down for the good of the party...(big deal)....DON’T TAKE YOUR EYES OFF OF THE DEALS STUPID IS MAKING.....
It’s that Monica thing......a BJ in the oval office, while Chinese lugged bags of money through the back door of the WH.
I’d personally send a “neener neener” to Fidelity Funds, since I divested after they held a campaign fundraiser ..... for Barney
Sarah Palin is likely not a big draw in Massachusetts, especially in Frank’s district. So far, she has been wise to stay out of races where her involvement would hinder rather than help. I hope she hs the sense to stay out of this one, too.
(I’m a Sara supporter, FWIW)
It would be great to send Barney back to home to be madam in his queer brothel. Get the idiot out our banking and finances.
Barney....screwed by a poll
Wow no, Bwaney is in twouble.
I semi-remember an analysis of the Brown victory (Barone perhaps?). The analysis showed that Brown carried several dem congressional districts including Franks. The analysis concluded that the GOP could surprise in Mass.
Even Mass. voters have a limit.
Barney Frank was directly responsible for the housing meltdown & Obamacare.
Let's make it happen, MA. Barney is a national joke, and he has to go.
To see him and/or nasty Nancy lose their seat would feel like I had just hit the lottery!
Those 2 idiots had a big hand in the economic mess we are in.
This is truly what I have been praying for, a complete overturn of the corruption in DC.
Isn’t he Chair of the House Banking Committee? That would be a sweet vacation. Vote them out!
A ‘moneybomb’ would help with recognition, but I’m not sure backing from Sarah in Massachusetts is a good idea...
Miracles happen every day!
Isnt he Chair of the House Banking Committee?
Yes, he is....
Rush plays a song for Barney called ‘The Banking Queen’ set to the music of Abba’s ‘The Dancing Queen’.
Barney Frank (D) *

The question is, would bringing the national media spot light aid by increasing name recognition and gathering national dollars to flow into the coffers. Sarah may not change the outcome, but her presence would focus the national media.
At the very least, it would sharpen the contrast and show that an relative unknown is within 9 points of a solid Dem seat. This will move the Dem focus and force them to defend seats that previously they did not think that they would have to defend. In other words, not a strong tactical play, but more strategic.
That can change overnight; as we saw with Christine...
Don’t get to excited, Barney is a known “come from behind surprise”
We need to make a desperate appeal to Him. Only He can bring about long term change. It's way beyond being about money, gays etc.. We need to get back to our Biblical roots ... somehow ... .
That's a good point...
Right. So many of our people need money.
Wouldn’t that be absolutely wonderful? I guess his base is way liberal, there can’t be that many flamers in his district.
Can’t get the message out without cash... :-(
In this case, Imight suggest that someone on the ordr of a Scott Brown (lukewarm conservative that he is) can accomplish both the act of highlighting the race and supporting potential R victory.
Sometimes, the best political decision a firebrand like Governor Palin can make is to stay aloof from a given race. She’s wildly popular in certain circles, and can fire the conservative base up like nobody’s business, but sometimes a strategic decision to hold fire is the right one.
It doesn’t make the decision easy, though.
My goodness, if we lose Barney Frank, on top of all the other possible victories, I think I will pass out from ecstacy perhaps never to return.
I just don’t dare to even hope it.
wouldn’t it be nice if nancy, barney, harry, and babs were all replaced?
Barney’s looking over his shoulder, but then again, he’s use to that.
I don't think America would have enough champagne....We'd surely have to import some.....FRink
I am convinced that there isn’t a district in the United States that couldn’t be up for grabs, if the Conservative message were presented in an intelligent honest manner.
There are bedrock issues within Conservatism that every man woman and child benefit from. We are a family values group. We support a man/woman’s right to thrive. Welfare, is not a trait of thriving.
The Democrats reveal themselves not to be family friendly. They are not community friendly. They are not friendly to a healthy national status.
November 2nd is my birthday.... So guess what I’m wishing for.
Oh you bad.
What can we, as non Massachusetts residents and Freepers do to help? We certainly helped get the Kennedy seat to become a Republican seat - we can do the same for Barney Fa - s seat.
