    Well, not really. The polling news is a little slow today, but what we do have is important, and bears a little breakdown. Probably the biggest news is the national polling, which has been dicey since the debate. Today, I think the mainstream media has gone a little too far in trying to convince us of the "Kerry comeback" story. Anywise, let's go to it.....

    Club For Growth ^ | 9/21/04 | Stephan Moore
    Letter to Club For Growth members from Club President Stephan Moore. 9/21/2004 As you well know, the GOP controls the Senate by just one vote. A review of all the polls in all the Senate races shows that if the election were held today, the Republicans would win just 50 seats in the Senate. Clearly we must do everything we can to prevent Sen. Tom Daschle and the Democrats from seizing control of the Senate again. Even with today’s margin, the GOP doesn’t have effective control of the agenda as the Democrats use the filibuster to kill pro-growth reform or...

    VOLPAC | March 19, 2004 | Bill Frist
    The Senate races are now in high gear and it is time for us all to focus. Jack Ryan won the Primary in Illinois last night, and we have a real shot there. As we saw in Colorado, things are still in flux, but I thought I'd give you my take on 10 Senate races that I hope you have at the top of the radar screen. Print this out for future reference. VOLPAC will be taking a position on these races as we get through the Primaries. We are strongly supporting all of the Republican incumbents right now. 1....

    Amend. 31 foes surpass supporters Turnaround in poll dramatic By Julia C. Martinez Denver Post Capitol Bureau Thursday, October 24, 2002 - As political races heat up, voters have cooled to a ballot measure requiring English immersion for non-English-speaking public school students, a survey released Wednesday shows. Meanwhile, with 12 days before the election, races for U.S. Senate and governor remain unchanged, which doesn't bode well for the Democratic candidates in either race, said pollster Floyd Ciruli.Forty-three percent of registered voters now oppose the anti-bilingual-education measure known as Amendment 31, while 37 percent support it, the poll by Ciruli...
  • Senate Races: Latest Poll Results frrom DC Political Report

    The DC Political Report runs an outstanding website, so I thought I'd share the results with my fellow Freepers. Some of these polls come from other sources; I've done my best to find the latest, particularly in New Jersey, Texas and Missouri. The date listed nest to each state is the date of the most recent poll. Each incumbent is marked with an asterisk (*). Cook Political Reports (Cook) and the Center for Political Reports (CPR) are also available on other sites and they've proven to be quite accurate in the past: Alabama (Univ. of Alabama, 9/12) Jeff Sessions* (R)...

    GOP Malpractice in South Dakota? With a good candidate in a pro-Bush state, Republicans still may blow it.by J. Bottum 09/23/2002, Volume 008, Issue 02 ONCE AT A PARTY here in Washington, I challenged a well-known political reporter--a man who makes his living covering the ins and outs of America's elections--to name the junior senator from South Dakota. After a moment's fruitless effort, he quipped, "South Dakota doesn't actually have two senators. Tom Daschle just gets to vote twice." That's a little unfair to Tim Johnson. Sure, he jumps when Daschle snaps his fingers. In fact, he jumps when...

  • No certainty in Senate races

    The Washington Times | March 17, 2002 | Donald Lambro No certainty in Senate races It doesn't get any tighter than this in Senate elections: Not one of the 34 seats up for re-election this fall is rated a likely turnover by election analysts. "It's unusual that at this point that you do not have a single seat that is likely to turn over," said Stuart Rothenberg, a veteran tracker of congressional elections. This is in sharp contrast to the 2000 races, he said, when there were five senators at this stage of the election year who "were highly vulnerable....
