Not counting my chickens, but the democrat party may be in for a severe bloodletting, similar to 1980 when liberals were being mowed down left and right!

Back in August, a poll showed Obama with just a 12 point lead over Romney in Cook County, Illinois. While he posted a huge lead in the city of Chicago, the poll found him actually losing to Romney in suburban Cook County. It was a shock that I set aside as an outlier. A new poll of Illinois' 10th Congressional District, which includes parts of Cook County, however, suggests the August poll might not be such an aberration. The poll, from WeAskAmerica, finds Obama with just a 2 point lead over Romney, 47-45 in the suburban district. Obama won the district in 2008 by 23 points.

Wow...

I don't expect Romney to win Illinois. Then again... ya never know.

Wow - with Romney turning in such a strong appearance in front of record numbers of Americans, his timing could not be better.

Pray for the America!

True, but probably not in Illinois, and, for sure, not in Cook County. Every one of the Cook County votes have already been counted with three levels of Obama victory. The level chosen will be the level needed to capture Illinois.

I think we are in for an election of Reagan-Mondale woodshed proportions. Neverthless, count on Obama winning Illinois. Let's not get carried away.

The article points out that the poll is 65-35 weighted to women. Even with this oversampling the Republican is winning the race for Congress in the District under discussion.

Unemployment is higher by 1 pt in Illinois than the national average. It is higher in Chicago by 2 pts.

Now there is no doubt that this state has a severe case of the Stupids but surely it has an end?

If I were Romney I would do a campaign stop, or send Ryan, in central ilinois. It could not hurt. It would make into the Iowas news market. Maybe Peoria.

Other thing, I really don’t have much faith in Real Crappy politics,

That was now Sen. Kirk’s district when he was in the House. Robert Dold now represents that district. He is on the list of freshmen reps thought to be endangered. I said this before, and I’m going to say it again. Romney is going to win big and he is going to have massive coattails. Count on it. Dold and others will be swept over the finish line by Romney’s coattails. No insult to Robert. He has to do his part, too.

Is it possible that Zero was actually a blessing in disguise? In 2008, liberals finally got the messianic affirmative action Marxist they’ve always wanted and both houses of Congress to go along with it. They had their way. And now they’ve seen how “their way” works. Or more precisely, fails to work.

This is how Illinois voted in 2010. Most of the state is red. (Map halfway down the page) Cook County is the reason Illinois goes blue.

Hell why not.

A quick drive for Ryan from Janesville to Rockford and then fly out of there to another stop in IA.

It would be a stop the presses moment for a news cycle ;)

Very similar to what I was thinking:

Dead people don't answer phone polls, even in Cook County.

The 10th Congressional District contains a significant number of affluent Jewish voters, including some who are willing to split their tickets and vote for occasional Republican candidates. This district has elected several GOP moderate/liberal representatives to the US Congress from John Porter, Mark Kirk (now in the US Senate) to the current incumbent Bob Dold.

Many of these voters will break with Democrats who embrace Arabic rhetoric who appear to be hostile to Israel.

"10th District is very Jewish. Perhaps more are finally waking up."

Kirk's old District, currently held by Dold. Very much a RINO district, though Dems are able to contest it. Years ago, Don Rumsfeld was elected from the same area.

I asked a couple of weeks ago why Obama’s bus tour had stops planned in Illinois; I was told at the time it was for fundraising, but my understanding was that he’d use AF1 for that.

I’m seriously hoping (and hopefully not deluding myself) that at this point he is just trying to save face by not losing his home state.

This is embarrassing.

Obama should hire Chris Christie for future debate practice, assuming it doesn’t completely crater Obama’s morale -which is a distinction possibility.

I would love to see one of them in southern Illinois, my part of the state. They NEVER show up around here because the state always goes LIB. Most of these lower counties are very conservative except for a few of those WILL NEVER VOTE FOR A REPUBLICAN kind of people. I have seen more Romney signs than Obama but that is probably because there is no need for Obama to show up here.

"They had their way. And now they’ve seen how “their way” works. Or more precisely, fails to work."

Yes, many are waking up to Obama's failed economic policies. Unfortunately, we have too me "gimmes" in this country. Those on welfare, food stamps, and other welfare programs will NEVER vote against those who provide them such.

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy,...

No one is sure where that quote came from, although many think is was from Alexander Tytler. No matter - it is an absolute truism!!! Give the "gimmes" what they want and they will continue to vote for those who give them more. Such is the situation in American and Europe.
