    Unfortunately, I am afraid that our government has become more burden than worth and little will change, regardless of party affiliation. Wish I were wrong but I think not.

    I agree, but democrats have lost their minds. The party is full of socialists looking to radically transform America. It's time to give them the boot before it's too late...it might already be too late, but we still have to try.

    @touch128 Republicans will bitch even if the win the Senate. The GOP just isn't conservative enough for a lot of people.

    @TigerLandSC I agree. Witness The Obamaniac's whole-hearted support of Russian dictator Putin's invasion of Crimea and Ukraine. While Putin is trying to resurrect the Old Soviet Union there, The Obamaniac is trying to resurrect the old Soviet Union here. Putin and The Obamaniac are socialist brother-sin-arms trying to spread Marxism-Stalinism everywhere.

    I don't know, there is still plenty of time for the GOP to mess up. Of course the Dems could blow it too. It's too early to talking about this!

    Yeah, it's kind of like "if the election were held TODAY..." but we have seen the fortunes of both parties rise and fall. A few short months ago, the GOP was declared dead. I didn't believe that then and I don't believe this now. I DO believe that Nate Silver is very good at predicting elections, but a lot can happen between now and November.

    Long term, I still sense trouble for the Republicans. With their base in decline due to demographics, they will have to reach out to minorities and change their positions on at least SOME issues to win future elections. But their base will not stand for it. If anything, they seem to feel that Republicans are not conservative enough. Bu totally writing them off would be a mistake.

    I tend to think the same way as this pollster, mostly due to one line in that story: "the GOP has done a better job of recruiting credible candidates"

    That's been the GOP's biggest issue over the past several elections: allowing fringe elements to take over the party. I know they get a lot of press but at the end of the day very few people will vote for extremists (on either side). Most Americans are moderate--this has been shown in polls and elections time and time again and still remains true today.

    I believe this will happen for 3 reasons, Obama, Reid, Feinstein. My biggest concern is , although I have more faith in the republican party right now, It's not much more. Both parties need to rethink some of their self serving policies, and remember they are supposed to be serving the best interests of the American people. There are far too many special interest groups controlling the leaders of both parties.

    You forgot Eric Holder hun. That "man" is scum and deserves to be in jail with Obama and the rest of his loser cronies. There are several reasons why I do not like the democratic party but he is definitely on my list of pure hate and disgust!!!
  • #61

    @GMB614 I agree. Holder should be in prison, and Te Obamaniac should be impeached. Even Jimmy Carter says he won't use email because The Obamaniac is snooping on it. How can DEMOCRATS, who for decades have been railing about privacy, and civil liberties, support The Obamaniac's all-encompassing invasions of privacy, and the killing of Americans by "drone-strike" ?! THIS is what The Democratic (the BIGGEST MISNOMER in the world) Party stands for ?!

    Nate Silver has been right every election since 2008. That's ... what?... three elections? I'm underwhelmed. On the other hand, perhaps he's due for a fail.
  • #35

    We have to remember, though, that not only was he right with the 2012 election, he was 100% right. Every state he predicted went to who he predicted.

    Yes, and how many races are there each election cycle ? Can you name anyone else with a better record ? And I remember all the Democrats in 1994 who laughed at the predictions by the political pollsters saying that the Republicans would take over the House for the first time in 40 years.

    It's a thinly veiled rallying cry to add funds to DNC coffers and get dem voters to the polls this Fall.

    It's pay up and go vote or you sheep lose in Nov.

    Don't worry, someone, somewhere, will ask some Republican what they think about female sex organs. It's all over after that.

    By the way, I'm looking at the right side of the screen:
    "This Lawmaker's 'Happy' Dancing Will Melt Your Cynicism About Congress (for a Minute)"

    Does the guy in the picture not look identical to what Bruce Willis would look like if he were a black dude?

    @TigerLandSC...something more dangerous than a scared dem is a pissed off armed dem. there are a lot of us out here who are sick and tired of seeing these extreme righties and tea baggers ruining our country and disgracing our flag that a lot of us spilled blood for.

    Of course they will win. The GOP gets the lions-share of lobbying money, what unfeeling a-hole who puts himself before his constituents, wouldnt sign-up for a cushy job like that?

    The Republicans have an uncanny ability to snatch defeat from the almost locked jaws of victory. If they are able to keep their candidates from straying into topics like 'legitimate rape', social conservatism, or religious right fervor, and they also pick good candidates they will win. I thing the chances they will accomplish all that is less than 40%. The Democratic Party have reason to worry. But, there is a long time for the time tested Republican penchant for political suicide to occur.

    I hate it when the media calls elections before they are over -- calling them before they've even begun is ridiculous.

    If Democrats don't do more confronting the GOP total nonsense of denigrating Obama, and painting the lies and misrepresentations about him as the face of the Democrat party, the right-wing propaganda has a chance to be effective. The GOP is building a house of lies, misrepresentations, and propaganda. It must not be allowed to stand. Republicans must be made to confront the official records and credible facts. They are yet to do so.

    May have to do like Rush promised to do, move to Costa Rica. But if I'm as honest as he was I'll stay here.

    I find it difficult to understand how Democrats ever hold a majority in the Senate since the number of red states easily outnumbers the blue states.

    I can give you the reason; let us not forget the democratic moto: VOTE EARLY, VOTE OFTEN!!! That and demographics.
  • #34

    The red states have extremely low populations. (Take TX out and they are mostly 3 seats States) NYC has more voters than several states combined. Then there are only 25% self identified Republicans. I hope they do win by 1. They will be forced to vote on things in the yes for once outside of 51 repeal votes. The only difference between a Republican Senate and Democrats Senate is loss of nominees for judges. Obama will have filled the 70 remaining judges by Dec 31 and then nothing will happen for 2 years. If Democrats win, nothing gets done and if Republicans win, nothing will be done. This is by far the most pointless midterm in a long time. House is rigged Republicans (Democrats would have done the same thing) It will be nothing but mandatory spending and the budget is through 2015 which means the 2016 budget is during election year and nothing but status quo. The only 4 elections I care about are removing Maine, PA, MI, and FL Governors. 2012 election had 26 blue States and 2008 had 28 blue States. They are terrible govenors who wouldn't have normally won. I don't care if a moderate republican took over. I do think McConnell will lose and maybe Georgia in the Senate due to open seat and race to the right. You are right in the 5 lost Senate seats from legitimate rape Akins, rape is a blessing from God Indiana, Engle, 2nd ammendment solution, Ken Buck, I am not a witch woman and a couple more that blew easy seats because they were not the best candidates. The only thing Obama wants is immigration reform and denying him that will guarantee a 2016 Republican presidential loss. I don't understand the logic behind it as the Senate Bill passed required 13 years before they could vote.

    @Center Every state has 2 senators., so it's a valid observation. Red state democrats do tend to be more centrist, or blue dog democrat, or Reagan democrats, however you want to characterize them. They usually provided a moderating effect on the progressive wing of the DNC. Not so much anymore though.

    @ Russell797 - "I find it difficult to understand how Democrats ever hold a majority in the Senate since the number of red states easily outnumbers the blue states. "

    The seventeenth Amendment and voter fraud are to blame.

    Always time for another scandal to rock the system. Probably something torture or surveillance related, could hurt either side.

    Corruption, stupidity, cronyism, greed, and idiocy know no particular party......unfortunately. I just want someone who is powerfully honest and ethical. Seems like a dying species.
