Byron York may have been right. With record levels of pessimism about the economy and long-term job prospects, lots of Americans may be thinking “I’m gonna need those government benes to survive. And the Dems are more likely to deliver”.
Are the voters falling under the same spell again? If even remotely accurate...this country is lost. The mindset that it takes to vote this way...is beyond comprehension. Mental illness is the rule: Destruction will follow.
My understanding from prior cycles is that the GOP hardly ever wins the Congressional generic, and wins seats despite being up to 5 pts down (or more)
So a 2 pt deficit is ultimately a good thing. But people with immediate access to the actual past cycle state may know better ...
That’s what a good government lawsuit will get you - better ratings.
We’ll just have to be sure to bring more of OUR dead along to vote than the dems do....
Nothing. Now take all the polls with Dem +10,+14,+8 etc and substitute +2. Where does Romney come out then? I’ll save you some time. It puts Romney at 50% and up 3-5% on Obama. But polls are just that polls. They don’t mean squat when the voting starts.
It’s a convention bump - the brainless loved Slick Willie’s speech, and the same bump Obama got applies in the generic ballot. It, too, will fade.
Buck up and vote accordingly and vote based on your convictions not based on a poll.
I don’t care if the poll said it was 90 to 20 I would still vote based on what I believe in and I do not believe in the Democrat (socialist/communist) philosophy.
Fake Polls, Fake Polls, watcha gonna do, when nobody with a brain believes in you?
Stop paying attention to them and they can no longer manipulate you.
Messaging, Messaging, Messaging. There is no consistent messaging coming from the GOP members of congress to paint the democrats as the incompetents / out of touch leftists that they are. Sheesh. It’s so discouraging.
this was part of the Obama bump that is now fading away.. Republicans will be back up in the generic soon
I think our side has miscalculated the point of no return. It has often been speculated that once more than half the people owed some or most of their existence to government that we would no longer have a republic. I think the 50% mark was too high.
I remember reading that Giuliani believed that if they cleaned up graffiti in New York they could reduce crime. It turns out it worked, and now I think we are seeing the reverse effect.
There are many people today, mainly democrats and independents who are NOT on government subsistence who want these programs. Watching the democrat convention you could see it clear as day. Maybe not even consciously, but these people believe that if we take away from the rich, they are going to get more than what they have now.
It's like this understanding they have amongst themselves that they are going to evenly distribute the spoils once they can finally kill off those greedy bastards that have more than their fair share. Of course, the entire fictional scenario is completely devoid of reality and historical precedent tells us it will devolve into a horrible mess.
Still, I think that combining those who get government subsistence with those who either consciously or subconsciously WANT government subsistence, we have already passed the point of no return.
Freepers: You have simply got to stop reacting to these polls, which are skewed Dem by a media who wants to depress the GOP vote. What normal person answers the phone for these pollsters anyway?....pan to the 50 year old guy sitting in his mother’s basement with oatmeal dribbling down his chin.
The American people are generally a decent, God fearing bunch. The drones/entitlement leeches/unions/libs/dems will challenge us but in the end, we will win. We have got to believe this.
Get up and volunteer to help in whatever way you can. See if you can talk five of your “on the fence” neighbors/family/friends into voting against BO(which is the only way I can justify this).
Listen to this: Mark Levin is my go to guy. He’s the only conservative talk show host who isn’t worried about keeping his job.
