Posted on 08/22/2012 9:00:12 AM PDT by nhwingut
DEVELOPING... 55% of Indies, 16% of Democrats Poll from RasmussenReports...
obviously not a huge conservative victory, but, if the D’s lose this seat, hard to see them eking out a majority....with or without Missouri.
Folks, I keep telling you forget the polls, forget MSNBC, forget Politico, forget the Obamabot mainstream media, focus only the the demographics that develop every single day. I warned the Democrat Party, they would rue the day they ever sided with anti-American, Barack Hussein Obama. They had their chance to broom him out of office, but opted to hang with him. Now....they will all go down with him.
Folks, watch and tune in the DNC coming and count how many Democrats up for re-election this year go anywhere near Obama!!!
This is CT, man.....There hasn’t been a Rep Senator here since 1989
That was no Republican-—that was Lowell Weicker.
And that was a “Republican” with conservative ratings of single digits to near zero...Lieberman defeated him if I’m recalling correctly ... who was actually more conservative than him.
Lots of Indies in CT - that’s how Lieberman got through. Just one poll, but another sign that Obama has lost a big slice of Indies nationwide.
Obama’s in a bind. He needs class warfare to rev up his base, but class warfare turns off Indies. Indies like “hope and change”, not Romney is a felon and a murderer.
Tell you all one thing. This could be one hell of a stomping.
Is it possible we could end up with a big majority?
According to the chart posted yesterday-—and I can’t find the thread-—we were already +6 (not counting MO). So this would be +7 (or 52, not counting MO). There are some wild cards-—Mack seems to be losing-—and HI, but I don’t see any way we get to 60 under the most incredible turnout.
I am looking to move to CT from where I am and was driving around and not a single 2012 sticker in site.
I’m thinking at this point we win Missouri whether Akin stays in or not. Voters are pissed. Not a good year to be an incumbent Democrat.
I be voting for her!
I moved MO down into Toss Up/Lean D area (until the dust settles) and moved CT up into the same. WV looks like a lost cause because even though Romney will take WV by a huge margin, voters will cross over and vote for the pretender Manchin. So I moved that to next to the last place.

Chart at Post 14 with a few revisions since yesterday.
I think McCaskill may overplay her hand refusing to at some point drop Akin’s stupid statement. At some point, it becomes obvious that’s all she’s got. Akin needs to focus on her extreme left-wing record and how she was the vote that gave us Obamacare even though MO constituents didn’t want it!
Even if he don't we can still pick up enough seats to create a working Conservative super majority in the US Senate for the 1st time in my life.
There are enough D senators in red and purple states that are going to be under a lot of pressure to work with the R's if Romney/Ryan win a significant victory in Nov.
I am not counting VA, MO, MI, ME,
I don’t care Linda is a NC native, ECU graduate and I hope she lays the smack down on the jack asses in CT
