Eventually, the ecomomy job approval and these numbers for the Democratic party overall are going to catch up with Obama.
It’s coming down to few-—if any-—of his original backers will publicly support Obama.
Look at what happened to Oprah——she was a number one TV star, a world-class celeb making zillion$-——when she decided to finance and public support 2008 Obama.....making numerous appearances with the candidate.
She quickly lost viewers-—and when her numbers went down, her 25-year reign at ABC was over.
Now she’s in danger of losing OWN-—her cable TV perch—— financed for $300 million——b/c she cannot get viewers.
We are going to stampede the ‘Rats out of office in November.
Obama could cost her a billion over time. Bad move, Oprah.
And that’s not all——a juicy bit of gossip circulated on the net.
Seems Oprah dropped in on Michelle for some TV business/interviews and the like. She thought she’d be treated like a celeb-—NOT.
Michelle kept Oprah waiting-—Oprah had to get humiliating clearances-—and Michelle refused to do the TV show about healthy food -—b/c Oprah is fat and did not fit in with WH plans.
I don’t doubt any of it. Michelle is mean as a rattlesnake : )
“I would prefer seeing at least one Generic Poll excluding non- Battleground states “
Still we should always remember the downticket
I prefer generic republicans... it’s the one’s with a name that will knife you in the back.
Plus, the overall momentum at present is against Obama and Co., which possibly contributed to the decisive Walker win in Wisconsin last week. But there's still close to five months to go to the election, which is a long time in politics.
The next big political event is the SCOTUS decision on ObamaCare. A ruling of unconstitutionality will enhance the GOP's momentum. (BTW, 53% in Rasmussen's latest poll favor repeal.) Voters would then be confident that electing a GOP Congress will assure - for the foreseeable future - that at least the most odious parts of Obamacare, and hopefully the whole darn thing, are history.
Intrade has it at a 70% chance that Supreme Court will rule ObamaCare unconstitutional. In my opinion, this will be bigger than even the Walker victory last week.
When do you think the decision will be announced?
The Discussion in October, won’t be about whether Obama can win, everyone will have accepted he’s gone.. the discussion by October will be “Will Republicans get 60 seats in the Senate?”
Only the most leftist of the left pundits will still be pretending their is any hope for a the Presidential race for Obama by October 1.
I am not trying to get ahead of myself but look @ my post the other day.
This is gonna be the biggest blowout in history and it is gonna take the Dem's 20 years to recover it at all.
Thank you so much for sharing your insights! Very hopeful news!
That’s good to hear.
Doesn’t really matter. Seat by seat I can’t count to 218 for them.
Looks like Obama is the BEST thing that happened to Repubs in a long time.
Decision expected sometime in June, so I’m guessing any day now
