Posted on 08/03/2014 3:47:21 PM PDT by Olog-hai
Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid may be in trouble.
NBC/WSJ/Marist has published a new poll, conducted July 28-31, that shows a majority of registered voters want a Republican majority in both the House and Senate.
Respondents were first asked if they thought Congress had been very productive, somewhat productive, somewhat unproductive or very unproductive. 50 percent of registered voters said they thought Congress had been very unproductive, with only 3 percent saying Congress had been very productive.
Even though the 50 percent who think Congress was very unproductive are in part talking about the Republican House, they dont want the majority to change.

Bumpety bump bump bump
Bumpety bump bump bump look at Dingy go.
Bumpety bump bump bump look at Nancy blow.
I totally support divided government. It should be difficult to make laws, not easy.
My only concern is our well paid pols and government on both sides do not support we Americans. Instead they support interests outside of America, when they should be supporting only America first.
Actually, they support only interests INSIDE Washington - period.
Really? By 2016 they will want Hillary.
Whoop-dee-do. Unless they want (AND VOTE) for conservatives, this amounts to exactly squat.
Bronco Bama and his handlers are well aware of these polls. That is why, unless there are 67 certain impeachment votes he will continue to tear the USA apart. He will do as much damage as is humanly possible and leave the mess for a follow on administration knowing that his loyal minions in the alphabet agencies will still be on the job bringing Marxism to the masses. If you think the last five were bad wait till you see what happens in ‘overtime’.
The Netflix series House of Cards is very good at demonstrating just that too .
It would be nice to see a GOP senate, but I’m not going to get my hopes up too much.
I’d like to see a Conservative senate. A GOP senate does not excite me.
Not ONE dime’s worth of difference.

More importantly, what do the voter fraudsters want?
This is why I expect the current administration to find a semi-plausible excuse to “postpone” the election. Semi-plausible to the low information voter, that is. Something like an epidemic of an infectious disease. Say..., like one from Africa that kills people in a really gruesome way, that maybe finds its way into the U.S. with, perhaps, a bunch of illegal immigrants. Something like that, that will frighten millions of people so much that if even only 5 or 10 people die from it, everyone will freak out and applaud him for taking action and quarantining the entire country.
There is only one poll that matters and that will be taken on Nov 4. Everything else is just smoke and mirrors.
No more voting for RINOs ever, under any circumstances. Period.
In the past I voted for McCain, and Romney nationally, and for Scott Brown in Massachusetts. But I guess it depends on your belief in how far gone this nation is, and what it will take to restore it, assuming that is even possible at this point.
Personally, I now believe that the only way to save this nation now (assuming such a thing is still possible) is to put conservatives in political offices and enact an agenda based on free markets, limited government and the rule of law. As long as we have a Republican party that actively opposes those ends (and we do, obviously), then I believe our only (slim) hope is drastic action.
As long as the Republican Party establishment believes that it can continue to survive by being Democrat-lite, and that it can continue to maintain power while actively fighting against the core principles of liberty, free markets and Constitutional law, it will never make the necessary change of direction.
Only when the Republican party understands that it must change or die can we hope to turn this country around. Our too-long-serving entrenched establishment politicians can still enjoy their comfy lifestyles, their wealth, power and prestige as members of a minority party. So why should they bother to change direction?
Surely a John Boehner (or an Eric Cantor -- had he not been defeated -- or a Mitch McConnell) would be just as happy to be minority leaders if the election cycle didn't go their way. Yes, they would prefer to be majority leaders, but what good would it be to them if a conservative Republican Party won the majority and then threw them out of their cushy positions and all those perks, replacing them with real conservatives?
Ask yourself -- which do you think Mitch McConnell would prefer -- a majority Republican party in which he was stripped of his position by a conservative majority, or a minority Republican party in which he could remain Senate minority leader because the majority of Republican senators were RINOs?
You may argue that we have no time to wait for the Republicans to realize that their only choice is to change or die as a viable party. But if we don't have time for that, then what makes you think we have time to wait for the RINOs and the GOP-e to pursue a "moderately marginal" course of action designed only to maintain their personal fiefdoms at the expense of a free America operating under the rule of Constitutional law?
The GOP had majority power in the House and Senate, and occupied the White House, 10 years ago. What did all that power do to move the agenda of liberty forward? Answer: nothing.
A GOP that cannot even sell liberty, limited governments and free markets to the American people is worse than useless. It is a party of tyranny enablers, and I will have none of it.
Unbelievably, today we are facing once again the stark choice between liberty and death.
Once again, these are the times that try men's souls. Conservatives need to be waging aggressive war against the totalitarian leftist tyrants on all fronts -- in the branches of government at the federal and state level, in academia, in the media, through public demonstrations, and in the voting booth.
Many argue that we must continued to vote for "the most electable conservative," which means "vote for the RINO if no conservative is running." But I respectfully disagree with that choice. I am done enabling.
If we really are to lose the greatest country in the history of the world, then let's at least be fighting for it when it goes down.
And who knows, maybe -- just maybe, if we show sufficient resolve and conviction -- divine Providence will once again provide the support that gave our founders their unlikely victory in 1776, and grant us once again the "new birth of freedom" that Lincoln called for a century later. NANCY PELOSI
Wise advice; with Cornball and Lamar! there, it won't matter anyway.
ditto on that.
I know democrats who don’t like democrats anymore... something has changed.
A Ted Cruz/Jeff Sessions style Senate would be nice. The GOPe can suck it.
Especially those dead voters.
“The Republicans had the House, the Senate and the White House in 2004. What did it get us?”
We didn’t get socialized medicine. We didn’t get massive degradation of the military.
We had a status of forces agreement with Iraq. And the deficit was half what it is now.
Not great, but better than the current madness.
Republicans and conservatives would make a good mix.
You are better placed than I am I guess, because I don’t personally have dimocrat friends nor do I deal with dimocrats. I have a cousin who is sheriff of our county. I would not vote for him because he was a dim. Then, this election, he was afraid that he would be held responsible for Obama, so he jumped to the republican party. He won the primary and is running against a no-name for the Nov election. He’ll probably win again. BUT, I did not vote for him in the primary and will not vote for him, or the dim in the general election. Why? Because I don’t think he has changed. I think he just jumped parties to stay in office. So, to heck with him.
You are batpoop insane if you want Harry Reid to keep the Senate. What if Clarence Thomas slips in the shower? You want an easy confirmation of Obama’s next socialist Supreme Court Justice?
Divided govt means Congress v Whitehouse. I don’t want a repeat of one Party government of either Party. One Party leads to corruption and non existent oversight.
So if there’s a Republican President you want a rat House of socialists to control the purse strings and a rat Senate that will reject anyone good he tries to put on the court? Sounds smart. Bush’s last 2 years were AWESOME, weren’t they?
