Democrat Michelle Nunn leads
Georgia Senate race: poll

The Washington Times, by Seth McLaughlin

Original Article

Posted By:SpeedMaster, 8/25/2014 5:04:48 PM

Democrat Michelle Nunn is running ahead of David Perdue in the race for the U.S. Senate in Georgia. The WSB-TV poll found that Mrs. Nunn has 47 percent to 40 percent edge over Mr. Perdue. The libertarian candidate, Amanda Swafford, received 3 percent, and 10 percent of the respondents were undecided. The winner of the race will replace retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Mrs. Nunn, the daughter of former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, is seen as one of Democrats best bets to flip control of a GOP-held seat. Republicans need to flip six seats to win back the Senate.

Comments:
This cites a WSB-TV poll which basically means Atlanta. IMHO the "establishment" has blown it again, conservatives will sit this one out, I will vote for Nunn for reasons I have stated many times.

A vote for Nunn = a vote for Harry Reid. Is that what you really want?

I find this appalling. Michelle Nunn is another community organizer. She´s liberal and unqualified.

Who on this forum could possibly support her?

Great, poster - you´ll vote for Nunn. Thank you for giving us Harry Reid again! You are a great example of why we always will have Harry Reid in charge. We can´t win the close ones. Christine O´Donnell in Delaware, Todd Akin in Missouri. Whoever that guy was in Indiana.

The Democrats are politically smart, even though not smart in anything else. They´ll take a less-than-Marxist Democrat in Alaska and North Dakota, knowing that only one vote really counts- who is the majority leader? Once they have that, that party controls the agenda for the term.

I would would vote for anyone who has the "R" next to his or her name. Since I am in Massachusetts,yes, that might be a dreaded "RINO." But, without winning seats, you can´t do anything. We live in a democracy.

@#2: Leadership is the last ´quality´ necessary to hold higher office. Nunn will vote the way Harry Reid tells her to vote. They all do it.

Correction #3, we live in a constitutional Republic, and libtards keep pushing the meme that we live in a democracy because you can destroy a democracy much more easily than a representative Republic.

# 1 Let me ask you a question.

Do the current (thus those after the 2014 election) Republican Leaders in the Senate believe they are there to govern or to push conservative solutions (if they know what conservative means) to the countries problems. The last batch helped create the mess we have now.

Believe this poll was done by WSB; if so, perhaps it was just done in Atlanta. Never, never do I want to see Michelle Nunn represent Georgia - a community organizer who is probably counting on her dad´s name to help her. Two votes from this household will be cast for Perdue.

My big concern re this November election - voter fraud.

The OP is not only actively supporting Ms. Nunn, but is quite proud of his effort.

No, I don´t understand either. Why not just declare for the other side and stop pretending to be a conservative Republican? No conservative Republican could cast a vote for a Democrat and thus help Reid to stay in control and to help Obama pack the Supreme Court.

A vote for Perdue is a vote against Harry Reid.
Nunn has no experience to be in the Senate.

It may well be insane for an alleged conservative to support a Democrat who will vote for Harry Reid´s agenda, down the line, without question.

If OP´s thought is that packing the senate with clones of Elizabeth Warren will result in a Great Conservative Revolution in 2016, then that is the very definition of insanity. Or delusion. Or virus-induced delirium. NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. By the time 2016 rolls around, the majority of voters will be so addicted to entitlements that they´d vote for Karl Marx as president.

#12: Perhaps I can explain it to you, although, it won´t be to your satisfaction.

Although, the recent R primaries indicate a majority of R voters want kinder, malleable, and D lite candidates, like McCain, Romney, Alexander (Tenn.), et al, conservatives such as OP, and I, are tired of supporting those types of politicians. We´re not nuanced, enough, I guess, to see the differences between those type of R´s and D´s.

I don´t expect you to respond. You seem shy when asked to explain your positions. Nonetheless, it will be helpful if you give us (OP & I), your views on what will be different, based on the histories of when R´s were in control, if the R´s gain control of both the House, and Senate this time ´round . . ., or the presidency in 2016, for that matter, if the candidate is another McCain, Romney, Ryan type R.

I agree with you #12. Of course, I realize this puts both of us and anyone else who agrees in a position to be ridiculed and insulted by brainiacs in the "party" and being called "establishment". Of course, we are supposed to believe they are looking out for Conservatives... If it weren´t so blatantly dishonest, that would be hilarious. IMO, it matters not what they say, CONSERVATIVES will take the Senate back in November and keep the House in spite of the name-calling. If my opinion makes ME a rino, all I can say is good luck with that and the old "sticks and stones".....

OP most likely sat out the 2012 election too.. Thanks OP for another term of Obama.

When are these so-called purist "conservatives" going to learn that ANY Republican is better than ANY Democrat?? Of course we want to get rid of the establishment cronies and professional pols who are simply in it for themselves. But to vote for a socialist Demonrat who is 100% in it for the leftist agenda against the Constitution and the American people, is just plain suicide--not to mention stupid. Why would you vote against your own best interest? Because someone isn´t PURE enough for you? So, you want to bring down the entire country if you can´t get someone who is "conservative" enough? Some people have no common sense...

To those bashing the OP, I say this - how much worse can Michelle Nunn be than Saxby Chambliss has been? He has voted with Harry Reid all too often, and has been resistant to efforts of us, his more conservative constituents, to move to the right.

I´ll probably vote Libertarian again (Amanda Swafford). Y´all can blame me for losing the GOP seat if you wanna. I said after the 2012 Presidential election that I am DONE with voting for the lesser of two evils just because they have an R beside their name. Never. Again.

not sure that I see a whole lot of daylight between the "approved" Republicans, and the Democrat of your choice. I give as examples Lamar Alexander, Corker, Grahamnesty, Snowe, Ayotte, Porter, and too many others. If you doubt that, review at your leisure the Senate confirmation votes for some of Clinton´s and Obumbles most hideously awful appointments, including to judgeships and the Cabinet levels.
Principles? WHAT principles? Certainly no conservative principles, and I submit no patriotic principles either.
We have for YEARS been doing our very level best to tell the Rockefeller Republicans that we.have.had.it.
What we´ve gotten in return are demands for votes and money. Along with a ration of insults and demands that we tug our forelocks in the presence of Our Betters.
To quote a former poster (but continuing lurker, Engraved-on-His-Hands), "they want our votes, but not our values". And that is very much the case.
I refuse to cast my vote for Benedict Arnold-lite types. And the "approved" Establishment Republicans fit that label all too well. If you intend to destroy my country, you will do it without my help.

#17, re-read this article:

http://cnsnews.com/commentary/david-limbaugh/democrats-constitution-and-rule-law

The parties are NOT the same. Their basic ideologies are so different that even if you don´t like what the Republicans are doing, they still stand for our basic way of life, they still believe in the Constitution and the American Dream. The Democrats want to destroy all of it because they are controlling tyrants and powermongers who do not want others to flourish and succeed. As I said before...ANY Republican is better than ANY Democrat. No question about it. If you vote for a Democrat, you are voting for the demise of the greatest country in history.

Whether you agree with the OP or #12, there is no denying that this debate is occurring only because the GOP Establishment has a horrific track record, has been spineless in the face of Obama´s actions, and has spent so much time and money trying to defeat conservatives rather than Democrats.

Thus, the rebellion. They are reaping what they have sown.

One final comment... the way to get conservatives into office is to beat the establishment in the primaries--NOT to vote against them in the final elections against the Dems! Of course we don´t want RINOs, but a RINO is still better than a communist. Get rid of the RINOs in the primaries...work to get more true conservatives into the spotlight so we can win more primaries...but do NOT vote leftist/socialist/communist or "Present" just because you didn´t get your way in the primary this time. That doesn´t help the cause--it destroys it.

It should makes us all sick to our stomachs that some of our friends here will vote for Nunn.

But rather than shake their heads in wonder and "tsk-tsk" at those who won´t vote for someone who spits on them just because they drag an ( R) behind their name, the die-hard Establishment Elites ought to saying, "Good Lord, look what we´ve done. We really truly have alienated our base so badly that they will vote D, L, stay home, or wear an XXX clothespin on their noses to the poll. What can we do to bring them back?"

But they won´t.

They prefer power to the party over principal. I say Bravo and Brava to OP and #24.

#28: It´s late in the evening, and I don´t expect you will see my reply, so I will make it short, and wait for another opportunity to make my point to you.

But I will quickly issue the following thought:

You are dealing in clichés instead of realities, when you say, in essence, the republicans tenets are this and that´s (such as believing in the constitution, and etc., and etc.).

I could state the catholic church, or Baptist church el al are godly foundations (and that may be true), but when you consider the number of Priest´s whom have molested children, for example, over the years, and have their actions protected by the church, one loses confidence in the foundation of the church; therefore, the church MUST be purged.

And so it is with the republican party. The party has lost its way, and must not be supported until it is purged.

Nunn is daddy´s girl - but not the Nunn that served as a Dem Conservative.
Think of her as Meghan McCain of the Republican Party.
A vote for her is a vote for Harry Reid- who has blocked over 360 bills from the House and personifies gridlock and corruption.
This is no time for amateurs and poseurs - we have had enough of that in the WH.

I am stunned at the number of Georgia L-dotters voting for Reid et al. by voting for Nunn or the Liberterian. I don´t like Perdue, but I would vote for any Republican this side of the Grand Dragon or Bernie Sanders. Why bother to vote Libertarian? Might as well go ahead and vote Dem because that´s where your vote is going. Thank you!

I shouldn´t be stunned though - this happens during every election cycle. So depressing.

As to whether the polls are correct - of course they´re correct. Do people not realize what the Nunn name means in Georgia? All the same - I hope they´re wrong.

AUSTIN, Texas -- Last weekend, Texas Governor Rick Perry defended his support for a 2001 bill that granted in-state tuition to illegal immigrants for Texas colleges and universities. As reported by Breitbart Texas, in a keynote conversation at The Texas Tribune Festival, Perry was asked directly by Texas Tribune CEO and Editor-in-Chief Evan Smith if he now believed the bill should be overturned, and Perry answered "No," also commenting, "I still think in 2001 it was the right thing to do in the state of Texas." After Perry´s remarks hit the news, public reaction was swift. Breitbart Texas´ article on

Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against amnesty, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush pushed amnesty legislation while stumping for North Carolina Republican Senate candidate Thom Tillis on Wednesday. Bush, according to the New York Times, reportedly said that comprehensive immigration reform "will restore and sustain economic growth for this country." And even though a recent Gallup poll found that illegal immigration is now the top concern among Republicans, Bush said that if immigration reform is "framed in that way, I don’t think there’s a big debate in the Republican Party about the need to do this."

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

After declaring war on the Tea Party and often showing nothing but contempt for grassroots conservatives that powered Republicans to record gains in the 2010 midterm elections, Karl Rove whined that the GOP may not take back the Senate this year because of the lack of enthusiasm for his establishment-approved candidates. Writing in the Wall Street Journal, Rove notes that even though Obama´s "job approval numbers are lousy, no Democrat in a competitive Senate race polls regularly above 50%, GOP enthusiasm is high, and independents are trending Republican... each passing day provides evidence as to why a GOP Senate majority is

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

The man who jumped the White House fence this month and sprinted through the front door made it much farther into the building than previously known, overpowering one Secret Service officer and running through much of the main floor, according to three people familiar with the incident. An alarm box near the front entrance of the White House designed to alert guards to an intruder had been muted at what officers believed was a request of the usher’s office, said a Secret Service official who spoke on the condition of anonymity. The officer posted inside the front door appeared to

The L.A. Times is warning that the “worst is yet to come” if a grand jury fails to indict white officer Darren Wilson for shooting and killing black 18-year-old Michael Brown. If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

President Obama shared an elevator earlier this month with an armed security contractor who has three felony convictions relating to assault and battery, in the latest report of a serious violation of Secret Service security protocols. Multiple sources confirmed to Fox News the incident, which took place in an elevator during Obama´s Sept. 16 visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The incident was first reported by The Washington Post and the Washington Examiner. The latest embarrassment for the Secret Service comes after agency Director Julia Pierson told lawmakers at a Tuesday hearing

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notified the media at 3:32 p.m. Tuesday that Dallas has the first diagnosed Ebola case in the nation. The federal agency scheduled a media briefing at 5:30 p.m. from its headquarters in Atlanta. Dallas County officials are expected to participate. Dallas County went through a day-long anxiety attack Tuesday, waiting to hear if the first Ebola diagnosis in the nation would happen here. An unnamed patient at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas was placed in isolation while awaiting test results for the dreaded virus. Apparently, the patient had traveled recently to a

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers. “With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week. As expected, the drop was steepest at 7 PM, with 60 Minutes (1.1) off by 69%

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

President Barack Obama´s intelligence briefings have provided him with specific information since before he won re-election in 2012 about the growing threat of the terror group now known alternatively as ISIS and ISIL, an administration insider told MailOnline on Monday. ´Unless someone very senior has been shredding the president´s daily briefings and telling him that the dog ate them, highly accurate predictions about ISIL have been showing up in the Oval Office since before the 2012 election,´(snip) ´Any time you´re hired by a boss to advise him about what to do in a high-stakes area, and he ignores you for

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."
