    Republicans David Perdue and Gov. Nathan Deal each won more than 40 percent of the Hispanic vote on their way to victory Tuesday despite staking out get-tough positions on illegal immigration, a new report shows. The Pew Research Center report shows Perdue defeated Democrat Michelle Nunn for his Senate seat with 42 percent of the Hispanic vote and 53 percent of the overall vote. Deal turned back a challenge from Democrat Jason Carter with 47 percent of the Hispanic vote and 53 percent of the overall vote. *** In exit poll surveys, Latino voters ranked the economy as the most...
  • What the Pollsters Missed: Voters Crushing Obama

    I've been called a lot of things over the years, but "biased for the Democrats" has generally not been one of them. But that's what I and other pollsters were labeled following Tuesday's elections by statistical gurus such as Nate Silver of ESPN. What's that? You've never heard of Nate Silver? Well, don't worry; neither has 99 percent of America. The other 1 percent probably relied on his lousy statistical forecast and bet that Brazil would win the World Cup earlier this year. (They got routed.) But Nate is right. Pollsters, in general, got 2014 wrong. My firm, InsiderAdvantage, polled...

    Democrats and the media have been making much of the fact that Democrat Senate candidate Michelle Nunn has a real chance to win Georgia, but the truth is that she has failed to post any kind of lead in 7 of the last 7 polls. Other than a tie in one poll, Nunn's Republican challenger, David Perdue, has not only led in every poll, but his lead has widened to 3 or 4 points. If neither candidate can reach the magic 50 percent plus one mark, there will be a run-off on January 6. Thus far, Perdue sits at a...

    One of the few bits of bad news for Republicans over the last couple of months was the Georgia Senate race, where the Democrat, Michelle Nunn, pulled into a tie with the Republican, David Perdue, after a 2005 deposition was revealed in which Mr. Perdue said that he was proud of his record of outsourcing. But most polls over the last week or so show Mr. Perdue retaking a lead, with Ms. Nunn now trailing by about two or three percentage points. Mr. Perdue’s gains come from white voters. He now leads Ms. Nunn by about 40 percentage points among...
  • Why isn’t Mary Landrieu smart enough to play the race card properly?

    ‘Mary had a little scam To fleece the voters’ views And everywhere her campaign went Her race scam made the news.’ Most of us are dumbstruck by the over-exploitation of the race card by Democrats. Their exaggerated playing of the race card is incredibly cliched and worn out. Do they really think that voters are gullible enough to swallow their hokum? Do they really believe that the intellects of American voters are that small? If I were a black voter I would be incensed that Democratic candidates assume that I was boneheaded enough to fall for these idiotic racial accusations....

    This started as a top ten list.Let's face it, with President Obama's awful approval ratings and the unfortunate consequences of Obamacare felt like a sting around the country, Democrats were already vulnerable in this year's midterm elections. These gaffes certainly won't help. Let's take a look at some of the worst mistakes Dems have made on the campaign trail so far:1.) That awful/insensitive/shameful and now infamous ad from the Wendy Davis (D-TX) gubernatorial campaign. 2.) Those colorful campaign memos from Michelle Nunn’s (D-GA) campaign, in which her own campaign referred to her as a “lightweight.” 3.) Sen. Mark Udall (D-CO) saying he was...

    The polls this cycle have been cruel to Democrats. A number of surveys have given the president’s party undue hope that they could pull off the impossible on Election Day and retain control of the U.S. Senate. But, like Lucy van Pelt ripping the set football away from a rushing Charlie Brown at the very last minute, Democrats have been robbed of that intoxicating hope just as the buzz was getting good. After abandoning the party’s nominee as determined by the voters, Democrats were thrilled by the prospect that ruby red Kansas might elect a Democrat masquerading as an independent...
  • Survey USA: Senate race has flipped in Georgia [Perdue now leads]

    Going into the final week, the close Senate races are beginning to shake out — and perhaps get caught in the national wave. That may be the case in Georgia, where Survey USA’s polling shows a five-point shift in the race between Michelle Nunn and David Perdue to replace Saxby Chambliss. Last week, Nunn edged Perdue 46/44, but Perdue now leads 48/45 with seven days left. The “dramatic” difference, Survey USA reports, is among women: Compared to a WXIA-TV pre-election tracking poll one week ago, Democrat Michelle Nunn is upside down. One week ago, Nunn led Republican David Perdue...

    Democrat Michelle Nunn wants you to believe she’s a “moderate.” She’s running as a Republican in conservative Georgia. Democrats always run as moderates. Then they get into office and push legislation to crush the middle class. Now there’s proof that Nunn is a diehard liberal… And she supports amnesty. GotNews unearthed video of Michelle Nunn pushing amnesty for illegal immigrants.

    Voters in Georgia have a pretty clear choice when it comes to a candidate for U.S. Senate — the Planned Parenthood endorsed Michelle Nun or David Perdue, who has the support of pro-life groups. The nation’s biggest abortion business is spending heavily to trash Perdue and make voters in Georgia wrongly think he opposes birth control. From a story: davidperdue2With Democrats increasingly pinning their hopes on Michelle Nunn winning a Georgia Senate seat, Planned Parenthood is among the groups sending reinforcements. For the first time, the organization’s advocacy and political arms are jumping into the race with digital ads and...

    More GOP cavalry arrived in Georgia today as Texas Sen. Ted Cruz stumped with David Perdue and Gov. Nathan Deal in Canton, invoking memories of long gas lines and stagflation as he attacked their Democratic rivals. “Here in Georgia, we’ve got on the ballot Jimmy Carter and Sam Nunn,” he said. “It’s like ‘That 70’s Show.'” The Texas firebrand echoed Perdue’s talking points by saying that an election of Michelle Nunn, the Democratic nominee, equals a stamp of approval for President Barack Obama’s agenda. Republicans need a net gain of six Senate seats to take control of the chamber, and...

    Businesses must be willing to adapt or risk going out of business. Someone as ignorant as Michelle Nunn about basic economics should not be elected to the Senate Michelle Nunn has been getting a lot of traction on the “shipping jobs overseas” rhetoric in an effort to paint her opponent, David Purdue, as unsympathetic to American workers. It’s a tactic toward anyone who is in business to demagogue them for shipping jobs overseas, just like they did to Romney in 2012. Michelle’s cheap shots have lead her to create an ad campaign specifically focused on this narrative. Hours of countless...

    It is not a mirage. In the Deep South, Democratic Senate candidate Michelle Nunn is surging. Of all the polls in the field in October in the Peach State, Nunn has tied or enjoyed a slight lead over Republican nominee David Perdu. On Friday morning, a CNN/ORC survey showed Nunn with her widest lead yet – 47 to 44 percent – over her Republican challenger. A third party candidate is drawing another 5 percent of the vote while 4 percent remain undecided. That poll also found incumbent Gov. Nathan Deal trailing his opponent, Democrat and former President Jimmy Carter’s...

    After President Obama compounded his ‘every single one of my policies are on the ballot’ assertion by praising vulnerable Congressional Democrats as staunch water-carriers for his agenda, I joked that the only way he could assist Republican ad makers any further would be to call out each Democrat by name. And that’s precisely what he’s now done in Georgia, where Michelle Nunn has been impersonating Gumby to avoid being linked too closely with the unpopular president. Over to you, champ — via America Rising:(VIDEO-AT-LINK) “If Michelle Nunn wins, that means that Democrats keep control of the Senate, and that means...

    11 Alive has released the results of a new SurveyUSA poll that for the first time in their series of polls shows Michelle Nunn in the lead for the Georgia Senate race against David Perdue. The poll shows Democrat Michelle Nunn with 48%, Republican David Perdue with 45%, and Libertarian Amanda Swafford with 3%. 4% of voters remain undecided. While the margin of error is 4.2%, meaning that the two could conceivably be tied, that’s likely no consolation. Looking at the poll’s crosstabs, the electorate is assumed to be 61% white, 27% black, 7% Hispanic and 5% Asian. That potentially...

    David Perdue and Michelle Nunn squared off in their first real debate for Georgia’s open Senate seat just a few days ago, meeting before a rowdy audience that helped make the contest a spirited affair. For national outlets, the headlines wrote themselves. Perdue dared deal with “economic reality” in the days preceding the debate, and Nunn’s predictable attacks were what they chose to shine the spotlight on. The far bigger story should revolve around the largest industry in the state of Georgia, that being agriculture. Michelle Nunn’s campaign plan, leaked in late July after Perdue clinched the GOP nomination, included...

    Sam Nunn on Thursday condemned as “shameful” that TV spot from Republican U.S. Senate candidate David Perdue that accuses Michelle Nunn and the foundation for which she worked of giving money to terrorist-linked organizations. “It’s shameful. Particularly when you know that everybody in the opposition campaign knows that that’s not true,” her father, the longtime former U.S senator, said in an hour-long interview. “It’s not like they believe it. There’s too much these days of anything that works, regardless of what lines it crosses.” Michelle Nunn’s father also said his daughter, the Democratic nominee for Senate, has little obligation to...
