  • GA: Absentee ballots, initial in-person voting lines in Cobb showing early election enthusiasm

    Vote early, and often. The oft-used mantra seems to have been taken to heart by many Cobb residents based on initial election turnout numbers released Monday before the end of the first day of early voting. Votes submitted by absentee mail as of Friday, prior to the start of Monday’s in-person early voting, totaled 6,379 — nearly four times the number of votes returned by the same time ahead of the 2014 general election: 1,659. Absentee ballots issued for this year’s election total 21,689 — more than triple the 6,496 issued in 2014 prior to in-person voting then. This year’s...
  • Rep. Jim Jordan’s Vision If Republicans Maintain the Majority And He’s The Next Speaker of the House

    Townhall ^ | Posted: Oct 14, 2018 1:31 PM | Alex Nitzberg
    Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) believes the Republicans will maintain their majority in the House through the November midterm elections—achieving that victory is “priority number one” he said during an interview with Townhall. If that mission is accomplished, Rep. Jordan hopes to succeed outgoing Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) as the next Speaker of the House—and if he’s successful in his bid for the Speakership, his objective is to follow through on that which voters were promised, he explained, to “do what we said.” This entails exercising the “political will” to fight for the issues that American citizens elected them to fight...
  • ABC: Generic Ballot In Battleground Districts Is … R+1?

    The key to voter enthusiasm in this midterm cycle may be the same as it is in real estate: Location, location, location. ABC News’ Rick Klein takes a look at the current generic-ballot polling from the latest Washington Post/ABC partnership and notes that the double-digit Democratic lead would normally spell curtains for the GOP. However, Klein points out that almost all of it comes in districts well in hand for Democrats — and that the battleground looks far different: It could be even worse than that from the Democratic perspective. The WaPo/ABC generic ballot result is on the outer edge...

    Minnesota County Commissioner Pete Stauber leads former State Rep. Joe Radinovich (D-MN) by 15 points, according to a poll released on Monday. Minnesota Republican Stauber leads Radinovich by 15 points—49 to 34 percent—in Minnesota’s Eighth Congressional District. Thirteen percent of Minnesota voters remain undecided, and the margin of error is 4.6 percent, giving Stauber a comfortable lead over the Minnesota Democrat. The previous Times poll showed Radinovich leading by only one point, making the latest poll a 14-point growth towards the Minnesota Republican. Breitbart News reported that MN-8 is one of the key congressional districts that Republicans must flip to...

    Just a few observations that I see few people out there making. 1. Keep in mind that virtually ALL absentee ballots that are arriving now were MAILED on or about the time of the Judge K hearings & almost certainly will reflect that outrage. 2. I am hearing rumblings---can't put much solid behind it---that DemoKKKrats are really, really getting worried. At every level. In AZ, Enema has just imploded with one scandal after another, in NV Heller has built his lead, in ND, MO, TX, and TN, the Rs have settled into solid leads (and no, Betamale has NEVER, EVER...

    Republicans have surged in several key Nevada races, including Sen. Dean Heller’s (R-NV) campaign, according to a poll released on Monday. Sen. Heller leads Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-NV) by seven points—48 to 41 percent—in an Emerson College poll. Eight percent of Nevadans remain undecided, and the margin of error is 4.2 points, which puts Heller’s lead above the margin of error. The Nevada Senate candidates both have polarizing favorability numbers. Forty-two percent of Nevadans have a favorable opinion of Sen. Heller, compared to 46 percent of Nevadans who have a negative view of the Nevada Republican. Rep. Rosen has a...

    Democrats are already worried about turnout this November, particularly because polling shows that the youngest voters – college students in particular – are the least enthusiastic and the least likely to show up at the polls. That gap extends up through the age bracket of the youngest millennials but mostly focuses on what’s now being called Generation Z. In Virginia, however, it appears that enthusiasm isn’t the only problem they have. Young voters there are complaining that they can’t mail in their absentee ballots. Why? Because many of them can’t figure out where and how to purchase stamps to send...

    Stacey Abrams, the Democrat hoping to make history as the first black governor of Georgia, was asked by CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday if she believes the “Trump economy” has been good for Georgia. Abrams credited President Barack Obama, not Trump:I would say that the Obama economy and that Nathan Deal, as governor, have both done a very good job of shepherding our society. But the problem we have is that, while our unemployment rate has fallen, we still are a low-wage state, where you have a lot of folks who are working two or three of those...

But that’s where the good news for Wilson ends, as the poll shows her opponent Mitt Romney winning among men, women, all age groups, Republicans and unaffiliated voters, for an overall lead of 59 percent to Wilson’s 23 percent

    RICHMOND —Rep. Scott Taylor (R-Va.) leads Democratic challenger Elaine Luria 50 percent to 43 percent in Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District, according to a new poll released Monday by Christopher Newport University’s Wason Center for Public Policy. Taylor has a 7-point lead among likely voters, suggesting that voters are not troubled by his involvement in a scandal in which his campaign staffers submitted fraudulent signatures in a failed effort to get another candidate onto the ballot. The poll had a margin of error of about 4 percentage points.

    In a windowless conference room, Republican Senate candidate Martha McSally was asking executives at a small crane manufacturing company how the GOP tax cut has helped their business when one woman said: “I want to ask you a question about health care.” Marylea Evans recounted how, decades ago, her husband had been unable to get health insurance after developing cancer, forcing the couple to sell some of their Texas ranch to pay for his treatment. Now she was worried about Democratic ads saying McSally, currently a congresswoman, supported legislation removing the requirement that insurers cover people with pre-existing medical conditions....

Her socialist positions made her popular with Bernie Sanders and other of the like. After all, she is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America. On Saturday, Ocasio-Cortez celebrated her birthday in an odd way: by bragging about her "accomplishments" and the life she's built over the last seven years....

    As Democrats campaign for the Nov. 6 midterm elections, they have plenty of legitimate criticisms to level at President Trump and Republicans who control the House and Senate. But Democrats were hurt in recent days by amazing and disgusting comments made by Hillary Clinton and former Attorney General Eric Holder. As a Democrat, I want my party to win as many seats as possible in the House and Senate and to capture as many governorships and other state offices as it can. But the Clinton and Holder remarks do not advance that effort – they hurt it. Former Secretary of...

    Stacey Abrams emerged from her SUV on a busy Midtown Atlanta street corner on Sunday with a declaration to make to the throngs of voters attending the Atlanta Pride Parade, the annual celebration of LGBT rights in the heart of the city. “We’re here because we stand together, because we know that allies do not run from fights. And because we know we all have pride in Georgia,” she told cheering supporters, adding: “We stand with you and not against you.” Shortly after, she became the first major-party nominee for governor to march in the parade, a vibrant spectacle that...

    Several Democrats are saying former 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is viewed as the “kiss of death” among Democratic candidates running in the 2018 midterm elections. The Democrats, who spoke on condition of anonymity, voiced concerns that Clinton’s presence would threaten the party’s chances at retaking the House and Senate in 2018, forcing Clinton to keep campaigning to a minimum and only appearing at low-key fundraisers. “Hillary Clinton is the kiss of death and she represents the part of the Democratic Party that led to historic losses and that elected Donald Trump president,” one leading Democratic strategist told the...

    Hundreds of Honduran migrants are headed for the United States border, just days after Vice President Pence sat down with the Central American country’s leader, urging him to take a tougher stance on mass migrations. At least 1,300 people, including young children, left San Pedro Sula in northern Honduras on Saturday, in what some are calling the “March of the Migrant,” Reuters reported. Bartolo Fuentes, the organizer, told the news agency that the group plans to march through Guatemala and into Mexico. From there, participants will request refugee status, which would allow them to stay in the country, or they...
