Poll: Warren maintains edge over
Brown in Mass. Senate contest

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Peter Schroeder

Original Article

Posted By:Photoonist, 10/7/2012 7:35:37 PM

Elizabeth Warren is holding a slight edge over Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) in their hotly contested Senate race, according to a new poll. One month before election day, the former Obama adviser and Harvard law professor is leading the freshman lawmaker 50 to 45 among likely voters, (Snip) The support for the two candidates shows a healthy break along gender lines, as Warren is pulling nearly two-thirds support from women, while Brown enjoys an 18-point edge among men. Warren's lead also comes despite the fact that Brown enjoys a healthy lead among independents, pulling 62 percent support compared to Warren's

Comments:
So I put these numbers as given into my calculator and it blew up. Are they now forecasting both fare more Democrats and far more women to show up to vote in order to get the results they want? It's a good thing they aren't polling Martians favorable to 0bama or we'd be due for an invasion.

Wishful thinking. Good time to bet your liberal friends in Massachusetts for a steak dinner.

I don't trust the polls, that said, maybe Scott should not have disappointed the Tea Party. Like Mom used to say 'I brought you into this world, I can take you out' or the other one, ...who brought you to the dance...

It just goes to show you what my husband has always contended: Mass. voters are bone stupid. Witness "the swimmer", renamed the lion of the Senate, a mincing and obnoxious Barney Frank, and toy boy John Kerry, who was in Vietnam and marries increasingly wealthy women who can pay for his botox. That Elizabeth Warren, with her record, her lies, her law degree and her native American heritage is about to win proves my husband, once again, to be correct.

Never underestimate the stupidity of liberals in large groups.

If people used their brains to make rational judgements, Obama wouldn't have enougn votes to plot on a graph.

And Princess Lie-A-Watha would be the subject of such intense ridicule she would have to wear a Nixon mask to get served at the local Starbucks.

I'm not thinking Mass voters want to listen to this whisper baloney till the next election. She's missing a teepee or two, has 'practiced' law w/o a license. She's homely as a hedge fence and he's a centerfold. C'mon Mass voters.. slap a

I imagine that her numbers went up after voters found out she was practicing law without a license. It wouldn't be Massachusetts if they didn't have a criminal for a Senator.

Ladies of Mass:

The Western New England University Polling Institute is calling 2/3d of you, especially Independents, STUPID.

Can I call that a "fixed headline"?

Hopefully you will turn out in great numbers and vote for Sen. Scott Brown to prove the lib professors wrong.

I live in Mass and am active in our local republican committee. I still believe Brown will win this race. I agree there are a lot of ignorant voters here, but Scott's appeal should pull him through. There is so much outside money for her with non stop false advertising.

The OP has it right -- a suspect poll. Dems oversampled by 4 percent. Independents (where Brown is strong) undersampled by 5 percent. Male/female ratio is off. And a 5-point margin of error.

The key number, which The Hill carefully ignores, is that Lieawatha's unfavorable rating in this same poll has climbed 8 points in under a month. She had a 33% unfavorable three weeks ago; this survey puts that number at 41%.

Townhall, by Daniel Doherty    Original Article

We at Townhall have been covering this hotly contested Senate race for months and the results are finally in: With 36 percent of precincts reporting, Elizabeth Warren has been declared the next junior Senator from Massachusetts. Warren has never held public office before and the eye-popping $40 million she raised this election cycle evidently proved more than enough to unseat incumbent Senator Scott Brown. This was the most expensive Senate race of 2012 -- by a long shot.

CNN Reports Romney Internal
Polling Shows Obama Leading In Ohio

CNN’s Peter Hamby reported that Mitt Romney‘s internal polling showed President Obama leading in Ohio by five percentage points.Per Hamby’s post: The number represented a sharp final bump for Obama in Ohio, a race that had essentially been a tied race through much of the previous week, according to the campaign’s daily tracking. The polling, which also showed a tight race in Pennsylvania, explains why Romney officials decided to send their candidate on last-minute Election Day visits to Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

The Obama and Romney campaigns may be gearing up for a very late night, with one Obama campaign adviser predicting that in Florida alone, "they'll be counting until 2 a.m." The Obama adviser said signs suggest the race is quite tight, though the campaign claimed to be "holding strong" in key battlegrounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The adviser also said turnout among black voters in Virginia was better than expected, suggesting that could be a problem for Mitt Romney. Republican operatives in Virginia, though, predicted a razor-thin victory for their candidate in the state.

Washington - Early returns on Tuesday in what is anticipated to be a dead even presidential election contained no surprises, as CNN projected President Barack Obama will win his home state of Illinois and eight other races while Republican challenger Mitt Romney will win nine states. All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides. Obama and Romney ran dead even in final polls that hinted at a result rivaling some of the closest presidential elections in history, reflecting the deep political

A week after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, a majority of voters said President Barack Obama’s response to the crisis wasn’t a factor in their vote, according to early exit polls. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed, per CBS News’ early exit polling released by radio station WKZO in Kalamazoo, Mich., said Obama’s handling of the storm was a minor factor in their vote or wasn’t a factor at all. Twenty-six percent named Sandy as an “important” factor, and 15 percent said it was the “most important” factor in their decision.

Mitt Romney is leading among independents in both Ohio and Virginia, early exit polls show. In Ohio, the former Massachusetts governor takes 56 percent of self-identified independents, compared with 40 percent for President Barack Obama. That’s a huge decrease for Obama from 2008, when the exit polls found him winning independents in Ohio by 12 points, 52 percent to 44 percent for John McCain. The numbers are similar but slightly tighter in Virginia: Romney takes 53 percent of independents there, according to ABC News exit polls, a 12-point lead over Obama. In 2008, Obama won independents in the state by

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it."

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
