Am I sensing a bit of panic in the MSM?
“Am I sensing a bit of panic in the MSM?”
Yes. Yes you are.
I'd say it's more thn likely. I read a similar story earlier this year. There was another story about writing off the white working class. That used to be their bread and butter once upon a time.
In the 2010 midterm election, when Republicans crushed Democrats up and down the ballot nationally, less than 33 percent of the white working class voted for House Democrats a record low.
“The collective total of independents grew by about 443,000 in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire and North Carolina since the 2008 election, according to data compiled by Bloomberg from state election officials.
During the same time, Democrats saw a net decline of about 480,000 in those six states, while Republicans — boosted in part by a competitive primary earlier this year — added roughly 38,000 voters in them, the analysis shows.”
Can I have an Amen?
So be it!
Iowa data shows Republicans have gained about 40,000 registrants since December 2008, while Democrats lost about 70,000.
Pubbies gained 40k and Dems lost 70k. That’s a chunk of voters.
I love these articles that say Independents are not happy with Republicans and Democrats,OK,where are they going to go? This Crap is Ridiculous,Most Independents are Brain Dead Democrats,People who are Clueless by Definition,You Have to Have a Basic set of principles,Right Now the Democrats are supporting A Marxist, I have said for years If Hitler came back as a democrat the Party would defend him to the Hilt! I dont Love Romney at all But One thing I can say I believe about him is that He is an American and does not Have total contempt and Hatred for his Country as Obama does. Anyone who cannot see this at this Point is A BRAIN DEAD MORON,and they are Mostly INDEPENDENTS
In truth, the independents are really center-right folks wearing indy costumes who do not support one political party or another.
That made my morning. :)
Those mid-terms cannot be ignored. Obvious results verse L/MSM polls directed at small populations of their choice.
“Democrats hit the high-water mark for registration in 2008, so its natural that they are going to see some drop off, said Michelle Diggles, a senior policy analyst with the Democratic-leaning Third Way research group”
Now that’s funny! Cause and effect completely reversed here. Namely, 2008 was the high-water mark for registration BECAUSE of the drop-off!
Don't relax...don't sleep...stay vigilant.
Consider all sources of these reports of doom for Choombama. This is pure playbook "Sun Tzu"; When you are near, make your enemy think you are far. When you are far, make your enemy think you are near.
These eff'ers do nothing by accident and this hits my Spidey Sense with the same level as the reports of the purple lipped prince having no campaign money...Boo Shiite.
Soros has unlimited pockets and only wants the walking dead to put up as much as possible before he is forced to wrap his hands around his own wallet. He's a money man, after all!
Continue to wake your neighbors, co-workers and those who get their education via Jay Leno and/or the Comedy Channel.
Awesome post, fellow Irish! Though, I’m from N. Ireland by heritage.
We need to keep our powder dry!
Case in point, I don’t believe they are including union money when reporting, though the unions appear to be setting up a shadow convention in Charlotte. That could mean trouble for Da’ Cool One.
I remember the shadow convention set up during the 2000 GOP convention.......against Bush. (Arianna Huffington set it up, and McCain showed up.) We all know how that worked out.
You have Spidey Sense? I love it! ;o)
Have a great weekend!!!!!
I was fortunate enough to visit Ireland, and N. Ireland, a few years back. I wouldn’t trade that experience for the world!
Nice to see that you are a fellow Mississippian, and wish you a great weekend, as well!
