Dueling poll results from Georgia
Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 8/26/2014 5:54:15 AM

A new poll of the Georgia Senate race by WSB-TV/Landmark shows Democrat Michelle Nunn leading Republican David Perdue by 7 points, 47-40. If the Dems flip this seat, their chances of maintaining control of the Senate will receive a huge boost. So should Republicans be alarmed by this poll? Probably not. Two polls from just a week ago give Perdue the lead by 9 points (Survey USA) and 7 points (Insider Advantage). In fact, Perdue does so well in four of the five most recent polls that the Real Clear Politics average for the race stands at Perdue +4.2 even with the

Comments:
This is for the L-Dotter who is enthusiastically campaigning for Nunn to teach the GOP a lesson or something like that.

Guess I struck a nerve? The party of MISSISSIPPI does not deserve any conservatives vote. As it stands a vote for the R is a vote for race baiting and corruption, the logic that the corrupt R is better than a disgustingly corrupt dem will not sway me again. BOTH represent the crony capitalism establishment that is driving this nation off a cliff, the R is going 50MPH, maybe the dem is going 70.

As for the polls, the WSB-TV showing Nunn ahead is basically an Atlanta poll with tentacles into the Macon market. A nine point lead in this population center where the dem machine is very powerful and capable of getting out 110% of the vote will be hard to offset in the chicken farming suburbs, especially since the national party has declared war on conservatives. BTW it was mcConnell in Ky (Dingy Harry´s replacement) who verbalized the sentiment. SURE I REALLY WANT TO VOTE FOR HIM

Right, OP. The two million Republicans who pouted in 2012 rather than turn out for Romney must feel really good about themselves.

#3 so you are saying it´s the conservatives´ fault that the Republican party has open primaries and lets democrats pick their candidates? This sense of entitlement of the GOP elite is exactly why they are failing.

Give us candidates that believe in conservatism and we will vote in mass.

Open primaries is the dumbest political stunt in the history of planet earth.

That should be the question asked first in every forum with a republican candidate. "Explain your position on open primaries"

If the answer is unsatisfactory, the public response should be "I may still have to hold my nose and vote for you as the lesser of two idiots".

We have GOT to get rid of this process wherever it exists.

Regarding millions who didn´t vote in 2012, I don´t think they were regular visitors to this site or average conservatives. Specifically, neither party wants the white working class, Reagan democrats, or Perot voters. These were Republican voters who understandably stayed home in 2012. Romney did very well with independents. That´s what the RNC wanted and they did achieve that. When you read that Romney had to take time off from the campaign trail in the stretch to raise more money from cronies, and that both he and the RNC knew they had next to no staff in the states compared to Democrats (per Boston Globe), and that Romney desperately didn´t want to run anyway, the outcome becomes less the fault of voters.

Having a true conservative is on my "really, really want to have" list but reality hits us hard. To stay home or vote Libertarian because the candidate doesn´t measure up to your individual expectations just hands the keys to the enemy. You wind up with a person who represents your views ZERO percent rather than 80%.

Which is better?

Until there´s a serious revolution, I´m not optimistic about the future of America, and here´s the reasons:

Our founding fathers knew there were more stupid people in the world than smart one´s. That´s why they put in place remedies to compensate for that disparity. They set certain ´qualifications´ which citizens would have to meet, in order to vote. Of course they knew those rules would prevent some capable citizens from voting, while allowing some stupid citizens TO vote. But their overall objective was realized; ie., more intelligent voters were allowed to vote than stupid ones.

Constitutional amendments changed all that. Now, just about anyone can vote -- for example; during the last election, in my precinct a group of ´real´ idiots (I suppose, from some institution), were bussed in to cast their ballots.

There´s a direct correlation, between those constitutional amendments and the deterioration of good government. It can be argued that those amendments, for all practical purposes destroyed our constitution.

There are many conservatives, such as I, whom are willing to let the state of our country deteriorate to a point where enough stupid people will come to realize WHY we´re heading in the wrong direction, and be willing to do something about that.

#21, I understand your point. I also think it falls under the category of "magical thinking." Packing the senate with a bunch of Elizabeth Warren clones will only have the result of getting more and more people addicted to entitlements. Their whole raison d´etre is the destruction of the middle class. The number of conservative voters will be a permanent minority--and an increasingly small one at that.

CLAYTON, Missouri -- Protesters seeking the immediate arrest of the white Ferguson police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black 18-year-old loudly disrupted another government meeting Tuesday. The group renewed calls to remove the county prosecutor investigating the case and vowed political retaliation against an elected official tied to the prosecutor. The demand for officer Darren Wilson´s arrest and the recusal of the St. Louis County prosecuting attorney began with the final utterance of the Pledge of Allegiance at the start of the St. Louis County Council meeting. "For all," crowd members shouted, emphasizing the second word, as the pledge concluded with,

Worried the pearly gates won´t have clean water? TV evangelist Jim Bakker has your back. Twenty years after his release from prison following rape and fraud allegations, the disgraced pastor is busy selling unique survival kits apparently for the Apocalypse. On his website for his latest TV program, "The Jim Bakker Show," the 74-year-old sells everything from bulk "End of the World Biscuits," "Extreme Survival Bottles" — two for $57 — and extreme cold-weather apparel. The evangelist, who considers himself one of today´s experts on the Book of Revelation, appears motivated by the prophetic scriptures in the Bible, which warn of the Rapture

Federal authorities have charged an upstate New York man with trying to persuade two others in the United States to join the Islamic State, or ISIS, the terrorist group wreaking havoc in Iraq and Syria that U.S. officials have been outspoken about for weeks. Mufid Elfgeeh, 30, of Rochester, also plotted to kill U.S. soldiers who had returned from Iraq, federal prosecutors announced today. Last year, two FBI informants began building relationships with Elfgeeh, who -- not realizing they were working with the FBI -- encouraged them to go overseas and join terrorists in Syria, prosecutors allege in court documents.

MONTREAL -- Quebec´s separatists are watching closely this week to see if the Scottish independence movement has learned from their failed attempts to break away from Canada. And it could be rejuvenated if Scotland breaks away from the United Kingdom. The Scottish National Party, which is leading the campaign for Scotland to vote yes in Thursday´s vote on independence, has been advised over the years by separatists in Quebec, a French-speaking province where two referendums on independence failed, though the last "Non" was narrow. Polls suggest the outcome in Scotland will be close. A vote by Scotland to separate from

How perfectly Clintonian: “While a crowd of several thousand Democrats waited on a sloping, grassy field below, Mrs Clinton, her husband and Senator Harkin staged a mini-grilling of steaks for the press at a single barbecue grill in a fenced-off enclosure, framed by a handsome tree and a picnic table filled with some patient Iowans. Mrs Clinton gamely posed, pretending to grill a steak that had been pre-cooked for her.” Remember all those relentless media references to George W.

Mike Huckabee is leading the Republican presidential race in Iowa. And not by just a point or two: in a new CNN survey, the former Arkansas governor, winner of the 2008 Iowa caucuses, is at 21 percent, with his closest GOP pursuer, Rep. Paul Ryan, nine points behind. Rand Paul is 14 points back, Chris Christie and Jeb Bush 15 behind. Few frontrunners choose not to run. And when Huckabee, not yet a candidate and officially undecided, invited a group of reporters to meet with him at a hotel outside Washington Monday, he certainly looked like a man preparing to

When Senator Ted Cruz delivered the keynote address at last Wednesday’s inaugural In Defense of Christians Summit in Washington, D.C., he was expected to place a much-needed spotlight on the plight of the ancient and persecuted Christian communities of the Middle East. Instead, under the guise of supporting Israel, Cruz placed the spotlight squarely on himself, and by so doing inflicted untold damage to the cause of Christianity’s survival in the Middle East. There’s been some misinformation about exactly what Cruz said to the crowd and how it was received. (You can see for yourself here.) First Cruz offered a few strong remarks

WASHINGTON — In his first year in office, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. put new limits on when the government could dismiss lawsuits in the name of protecting national security. Now, in what he has said is likely his final year, Mr. Holder has claimed broad authority to do just that in a case unlike any other. The Justice Department intervened late Friday in a defamation lawsuit against United Against Nuclear Iran, a prominent advocacy group that pushes for tough sanctions against Tehran.

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton.

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control.

The Obama administration is preparing to introduce major steps to phase out production of a popular chemical coolant used in refrigerators and air conditioners, citing growing evidence that the substance is contributing to the warming of the planet. The White House will announce on Tuesday a series of voluntary commitments by some of the country’s largest chemical firms and retailers to move rapidly away from R-134a and similar compounds used in nearly every office, home and automobile in the country, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort.

Washington - The current threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, will test not only the resolve and strategic judgment of America and its allies, but also our nation’s fidelity to a basic constitutional principle. Our Constitution reserves to Congress the power to declare war and designates our president as the commander in chief, but our recent history has been characterized by executive overreach and legislative abdication in the initiation of military action. The current crisis gives us an opportunity to restore the proper balance between the branches. America’s history since 2001 should compel us to fix the way
