Do you think the Republicans just lost retaking the Senate due to the Thad Cochran campaign's smear tactics?
Yes or No..opinions.
I think he lost by 6k votes due to 30k democrats voting
One World Government
Who cares? Dem or Repub majority, the results will be frighteningly similar. The GOPe is Dem Lite. Even if Rs get the majority in the Senate, do you really think the party will mount an impeachment?
Yes. Oregon is another example where the Republicans had a good candidate and the RNC pushed through a candidate who won the primary and has already gone left. What’s better, a wolf you can see, or a wolf in sheeps clothing?
the only way for us to take over this party is to let all the RINOs lose in Nov
Looks like a strong early showing is fading in Michigan, Iowa’s Ernst has been targetted by the Des Moines Register for destruction, and the North Carolina race has a spoiler libertarian with the same pull as Sarvis.
Let’s see. Repukes win in SD, WV, and MT by default essentially, so they’d need three more.
I think Landfill and Pryor go, but I can’t see where they get the other seat from, and I can easily see Cochran or McConnell losing now (deservedly so). Begich seems comfortable in Alaska, and Virginia and NH aren’t happening.
At least Dems wont win Georgia. Thats a dead horse.
No, all around, I’d say Obama squeeks it out.
Thanks a lot GOP! You’ve proved you suck once again. Attack the base, be prepared to lose.
Folks saying they're Republicans have refused to vote for him, and some are even saying they'll actually vote for the Dem because of it.
I don't even care about impeachment - all I care is this country gets back on track to freedom and individual liberty and that won't happen unless we get back to the ideas of the TEA Party and the ideas on which this great Country was made. I've just about had it with politics - Republicans are no better - they're all crooks.
Now, whether the Dems taking Mississippi in November queers a GOP majority in the Senate ...?
I'm not up to speed on the likelihood of GOP gains in other states, and whether they (by themselves) would be enough to retake the Senate.
Name one of Ubama's policies that Milch McConnell opposes.
Milch has absolutely no intention of repealing Ubamacare.
He can't wait to pass amnesty, though Ubama's border attack makes it moot.
There is no difference. That's why they were so desperate to block McDaniel.
I don’t know if they lost the Senate... projections had them with a two-seat victory... but I think they just handed Mississippi to the Democrats. I think most of the base voters will just sit home. Mississippi forbids a write-in campaign, so, this was quite literally a conspiracy by the establishment to fix the candidate. I think base voters in MS are so disgusted at this point, they no longer care who wins.
I certainly wouldn’t vote for Cochran in the general after all the sleeze he and the GOPe pulled. Conspiring with Democrats to thwart the will of Republican primary voters, is just going too far.
I don’t know if it will cause the GOP to lose the Senate or not.
All I know, with definitive certainty, is that it doesn’t really matter whether the Dems or the GOP run things. It will just be the same den of corruption. The prospect of the GOP prevailing and taking over the Senate hardly seems any kind of goal to even bother to root for, at this point. To hell with them all.
If any conservatives vote for that puke then they deserve the leftist crap they get.
That’s why they’re Dem Lite.
I’d say no. The GOP loses because it doesn’t stand for anything. What it did in the Cochran/McDaniel race it has done many time before. Reward the good ol’ boys and stiff the conservative whippersnappers. Courting Democrats is old hat for the Republicans.
I’m not aware of a write-in campaign being forbidden.
What is forbidden is him running for another party. Ie, sore loser law. He can’t do that.
We plan to write him in ourselves in NOV.
Land has a shot of winning in MI.
I hate to say this but if we haven’t already lost the Senate, it will soon be gone.
The reason? GOPe like Cochran, Barbour, Rove, McCain, etc. don’t really care if they ever get a majority. They only care about holding onto their seat, their power.
If you don’t even have the leaders of your party trying to take the majority, how can the people prevail?
He certainly deserves no conservatives votes.
Time to teach the Republican Elite a lesson.
Haley Barbour’s sons are telling the media McDaniel can’t run either way. Just sayin’...
IMO, anything may yet happen, including the GOP LOSING seats. Esp. if they push through amnesty in the House, many Republicans will not vote, or they will vote to punish.
Myself, I am rooting for McDaniel to run a sticker campaign in November, trashing both liberals. Bob
She has a shot, but she’ll have to suck it up and get out there, campaign and give speeches. Sleeping will hand it to Gary Peters, who now polls ahead. Michigan is not a red state yet. Avoiding public exposure won’t cut it.
What part of the “black” vote in MS does Cochran normally get?
Because the flyer put out was directed at blacks (racism meme).
Did the “klan” democrats show up to vote for Cochran in this primary? If so, then they will not in the general—worth a wager.
Which will NRA support? Dem or Repub? Cochran’s position on 2nd Amendment, immigration and other hot buttons will decide this.
Haley Barbour is the reason this seat will go Dim.
I DON'T want the Republicans to gain control of the US Senate! McCain (etc) being a majority would frighten me.
Would that be “big daddy” Haley Barbour’s doing courting the klan demos on one hand and milking the black demo vote on the other?
Yeah, flip a coin, he votes with Democrats 50% of the time anyway. Any Republican that voted for McDaniels in the primary, and votes for Cochran in the general is no different that many of the minorities that blindly vote like herds.
Yes. The so called “rebranded” Republicans have joined with the DNC and are now big “tax and spenders” stabbing the hardworking middle class families in the back at every turn. Everything is about coming up with new ways for the politicians to steal more money from Americans by coming up with weird new “taxes”. I’m totally disgusted. I don’t have a country anymore and I’m not going to become a freeloader dependent upon ‘RAT politicians just to retain my U.S. citizenship.
I don’t trust the polls that have Peters ahead, I doubt that matches the Peters campaign internal polling either.
Peters is screaming about wanting 6 debates, someone running well ahead in the polls doesn’t want to debate.
Snyder will win easily, the RATS know it and won’t turn out to vote.
Do the idiot GOP elite think the people are going to forget that they used Democrats to defeat them? And then come vote for Cochran? (who they didn’t want)
Or that the democrats that helped Cochran win are going to vote for him again in the main elections?
I don’t think they lost it, but they definitely lost the support of a large portion of their base.
If they do lose it this is a big reason why. This will reverberate beyond MS.
No, the seat can be lost and still win the Senate.
Looks like I’ll just leave the sinatorial bit blank IF I spend $4 gas to drive to the polls.
Hope all those new GOP supporters return to vote for Thad in November. I won’t be voting for him regardless.
A Republican Senate will not change anything in the next two years.
Especially the Republican Senate we're likely to get.
Let the Black Democrats and union hacks vote Cochran in in Nov. No conservative McDaniel voters should vote for the Democrat choice, Cochran. Write in the real GOP choice, McDaniel.
The republicans that wring their hands over possible losing a seat never say one word about Richard Lugar endorsing the democrat in Georgia this year or John Warner endorsing the democrat in Virginia.
Since they really don’t care if they regain the senate, neither do I. They just want power
Just maybe we would be able to elect enough conservatives via a third party to hold the balance of power in both houses. We wouldn't need a majority, just enough senators and members of congress to prevent either of the other two parties from having one.
It makes sense to have a liberal Republican candidate in a state like Oregon. A RINO is better than a Marxist, which is what the Democrats offer.
It makes NO sense to me why the GOP in a red state would push a RINO rather than a fiscal conservative.
I am stunned by this Cochran mess.
