CNN-Poll Shows Surge For O'Donnell in Delaware (Obama's Waterloo?)
CNN ^ | 10-29-10 | By: CNN Ticker Producer Alexander Mooney

(CNN) - A surprising new Senate poll in Delaware shows Republican Christine O'Donnell may be in striking distance of Democrat Chris Coons.

According to the new survey from Monmouth University, the surprise Republican nominee is only 10 points behind Coons, drawing 41 percent of the vote. In a previous Monmouth poll conducted two weeks ago, O'Donnell trailed by 19 points.

But the latest Monmouth survey differs substantially from two other recent polls, including a Farleigh Dickinson survey released Thursday that showed a 21-point advantage for Coons and a CNN/Time poll released earlier this month that indicated a 19-point lead for Coons.

The latest Monmouth poll surveyed 1,171 voters between October 25-27 and carries a sampling error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

In my opinion, Obama has been concentrating on this race to be able to crow his “Political Effectiveness” in certain races after the election.

If Coons loses this, the Schadenfreude on the left, and in the Major Media, will be a sight to behold!!!

Rush stated that Obama is coming back to Delaware to campaign for Coons. He also stated that Coons has backed out of the remainder of the debates.

The difference may turn out to be the likes of Rove etc. dissing Christine.

The sympathy vote because of the smear will be what puts her over.

Lets not cluck like chickens before they’re born. Or lets not hatch our chickens after plucking them. Or something like that.

This is all going to come down to a matter of turnout and stopping voter fraud.

At this late point in the campaign, there is little else that can be done. I understand that COD is out there meeting and greeting and that is very good, but 10 points down is a huge deficit. Moreover, losing by one vote is as good as losing by thousands.

So...DE....are you listening??? IT'S ALL ABOUT TURNOUT!

OK Folks,

Remind me again how many points Christine was down against Mike Castle a few days prior to the primaries?

Remind me again how many points Scott Brown was down against Martha Coakley a few days prior to the Massachusetts Senate elections?

I know that Brown was down 15 points in a Boston Globe poll one week before the election.

Karl Rove's misogynist gay rage will be in full display on Fox News if O'Donnell wins.

Christine said last night on Hannity that Coons had cancelled his appearance in the last two Debates. Hey Christine: Put an empty chair there with his name and go ahead and have the debate.

RE: I know that Brown was down 15 points in a Boston Globe poll one week before the election.


Thanks for the reminder. And yet, he won by a comfortable margin (I believe 52-48). No reason the same can’t happen in Delaware.

Coons, Frank, and Reid, all going down would intimidate the democrats still in office to the point that they'd be tripping over one another to get in front of a camera and agree with the Republicans. If Boxer went, too, they'd be beating the drum to impeach little Barry and jail his czars.

Well, maybe not, but I can daydream a bit right?

Regards
