    Getting back on topic we have seen in the last 2 Presidential Elections several questionable polls that showed McCain and Mitt to be much stronger than they were on election day. What we did not see was a single or series of events that would have suddenly brought them down in the polls.
    As the election got closer many of the polls in order to keep their Cred started showing the race was closer.
    But note Karl Rove still had plenty of polls on election day he could point to to explain his melt down.
    Karl needs to stop believing his own lies. We need to stop believing that just because Obama is unpopular which he is that does not mean the GOP automatically gets more popular.

    Yeah I compliment Putin on foreign policy moves like a chess grand master why because he does very good playing against us. More importantly he seems to be the only thing stopping Obama from starting WW3 just who things giving Ukraine Nazi’s $5 billion to take over the Ukraine was not an act of war Russia still has bad memories of the Nazi’s.
    Just who did not think Obama was going to get us into a war with Syria or Iran before Putin put some pressure on?
    Why is Obama so hell bent on starting a war? and is it just me or is Rachel Maddow trying to be the new Judy Miller cheerleader of this war? Rachel has not spread any fake stories of WMD like Judy but she is still cheering her heart out on this issue.

    Sadly, some in the first and second category have re-defined “generally liberal” to include the surveillance state, r2p, and neoliberal austerity and wealth transfer, so long as Obama and D’s are doing it

    There are people at FDL who believe this? I thought that was just the Obamabot talking heads on the news.

    If that’s true then why do you (members of Firedoglake) admire right wing dictators?

    Link please to show examples of this happening.

    You, seem to believe that a one party government will make everything alright.

    Uh we have a one party government now Obama just plays bad cop the GOP plays Rabid Diseased Goblin much Worse Cop.

    Firedoglake admires Right Wing Dictators? Funny when I call South American dictators and the Americans like McCain, Ollie North, Pat Buchanan who support them Nun Killers because of all the American Nuns the Death Squads kill I did not realize I was supporting them.

    I am not defending Obama but please how many voters would really want to choose Mitt over Obama? More tax breaks for the rich paid for by cuts in Social Security and government spending we all saw how unpopular Ted Cruze’s government shutdown was.
    Also I wonder how many votes Obama is losing for not being Left enough for voters?
    Didn’t Harry Truman say something about if given a choice between a Democrat who acts like a Republican and a Real Republican voters will pick the Real Republican every time? That is what I think is happening with this poll assuming we can trust it.

    Are not these the same pollsters who had Karl Rove convinced Ohio was going to go to Mitt? These pollsters seem to shave off Dem votes by classifying them as unlikely voters who don’t vote as much as likely voters.

Doesn’t having Tim Russert’s son at the network expose MSNBC to charges of Nepotism, Cronyism and being corrupt? Tim was Dick Cheney’s preferred choice [...]

    I have no doubt Brownback will win ( vote Fraud ). But it will cost the Koch brothers money to defend his job money that could have been spent elsewhere.
    The GOP Senate Minority Leader is expected to spend most of his cash to defend his seat rather than pass the cash to other senate races.
    Wendy looks to give a good fight in Texas forcing the GOP to spend money to defend what normally would be a safe state for them. The GOP will be playing defense while we pick up purple states.

    If I had to guess Governor Brownback’s polling is about the same as the Koch Brothers ads to increase popularity tend to be less effective after the consumer tries the product.
    Or to put it another way you don’t see ads for Night Train, or Crappy malt liquor because the stuff tastes so bad even college kids won’t try the stuff more than once no matter how many bikini clad women are drinking it in the tv ads.
    The Koch Brothers are hoping their polling in their home state where they create jobs is not below the even bikini clad women can’t sell this crap mark.

    Elijah killed the 400 Prophets of Baal because their God could not make it rain and Israel was in a drought.
    The Koch Bros and the Christian Fundies very well might face the same fate. Global Warming Science is the true prophet.

    The governor’s race crosstabs reveal: the older you are, the less you like Sam Brownback. He trails by 20 points among seniors, trails by 13 points among those age 50 to 64. Only among voters under age 50 does Brownback have a nominal advantage

    The GOP is losing old White People ( Its Kansas not many Dark People) but is doing better with younger voters? There must be more to it than education and taxes.

    No “Hello, Governor,” Pat? No “How’s the weather in Topeka”?

    What a brilliant way to avoid a touchy issue pretend you would rather talk about the weather than your own bad poll numbers. If anything weather is effecting his poll numbers.

    Drought makes farmers poor and the rural farm towns that depend on farmers poor GOPers depend on rural areas they fight over the burbs they Dems take the cities although in Kansas the GOP might have the cities too.
    Everytime people mention Global Warming and the Koch brothers Kansas GOPer poll numbers tank. Drought is Dem code for Global Warming since we can’t get the MSM in Red States to mention Global Warming but here is the thing talk Drought everyone mentions Global Warming.

    Hmm if this was any other country Syria, Libya, Ukraine Jon McCain would be screaming that Obama is weak and we should invade.

  • I would like to see Dark People go to jail at the same rate as Whites for the same offense maybe if the judge, jury and prosecutor did not know the race of the accused?
    Hmmm we would need to weed out racist cops, but I hear they are doing great things identifying psychopaths with brain scans. The Chicago Police should be terrified, as should CEO’s, Accountants and Politicians.
    We have a huge ethical debate coming if we know who is a psychopath what do we do with them? Obviously they can’t hold a job where they can misuse their authority.
