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.

It will be a miracle if the GOP capture control of the senate. If they do, watch out for nothing much to happen. The republicans are experts at screwing up everything they touch. In fact, Boehner/McConnell will give O everything he wants - at out expense.

#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.

Tea Party revolt imperils Kansas

Kansas Tea Party supporters are threatening to sit out the state’s pivotal Senate election, potentially dealing another blow to the reelection hopes of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). Though schisms within the GOP base rarely have such an outsized impact on a general election contest, the lack of support from the conservative base could be devastating to the vulnerable Roberts’s chances against surging independent Greg Orman. Multiple sources tell The Hill that a group of Tea Party leaders in the state are meeting Wednesday to try to decide whether they should go to bat for the incumbent this fall or sit out of

Suit: Black donor´s sperm

A white Ohio woman is suing a Downers Grove-based sperm bank, alleging that the company mistakenly gave her vials from an African-American donor, a fact that she said has made it difficult for her and her same-sex partner to raise their now 2-year-old daughter in an all-white community. Jennifer Cramblett, of Uniontown, Ohio, alleges in the lawsuit filed Monday in Cook County Circuit Court that Midwest Sperm Bank sent her the vials of an African-American donor´s sperm in September 2011 instead of those of a white donor that she and her white partner had ordered.

Americans love animals, even cats. Eight million stray dogs and cats find their way into animal shelters every year, and the lucky ones are adopted into a warm home with a loving family. Shelters are operated by small charities usually called “humane societies,” whose good deeds are funded by private generosity. The Humane Society of the United States trades on the good of others to finance a radical agenda. In May, the Humane Society and a handful of other radical animal-rights groups had to write a $15.8 million check to the Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus for damages done. The

Teenage girls who escaped the brutal clutches of ISIS terrorists have recounted a harrowing nightmare of beatings, torture, rape and degradation that included being forced to watch videos of men being beheaded. The girls, members of the persecuted Yazidi minority from northern Iraq, say they were captured and sold or given as gifts. “We would try to make ourselves look ugly,” an escaped girl, 15, told the Global Post news service. “Some women would cry or scream or fight, but it made no difference. They were always taken anyway,” She said they were debased so badly that death, even by suicide, was more

If there’s one major policy issue to the startup community, it’s noncompete clauses. Should they be legal? Should they be limited? On Monday, some members of that community were looking to get answers from Martha Coakley and Charlie Baker about their stances when the candidates for governor spoke to a tech- and startup-minded crowd in Cambridge. They didn’t get much. Noncompetes are a contractual tool with which employers can require new hires to agree not to work for a competitor for some time after they leave.

The U.S. shale boom is about to hit another big milestone, as it looks like fracking will propel American liquid petroleum production (that includes oil and natural gas liquids) past Saudi Arabia for the first time in nearly a quarter century. The FT reports: US production of oil and related liquids such as ethane and propane was neck-and-neck with Saudi Arabia in June and again in August at about 11.5m barrels a day, according to the International Energy Agency, the watchdog backed by rich countries. With US production continuing to boom, its output is set to exceed Saudi Arabia’s this month or

The VA’s inspector general said in a scathing report that Susan M.

Upon Attorney General Eric Holder´s resignation last week, NBC´s Chuck Todd made an odd comment: “[W]hat’s interesting about him, he is a very non-political person.” There may be merit to saying Holder has been more ideological than political, but it still seems like a strange thing to say about him. After all, his most famous act before his tenure as Attorney General had been to help arrange President Bill Clinton´s highly unusual and controversial last minute pardon of a wanted fugitive — mega-donor and billionaire Marc Rich. Holder not only recommended the pardon (calling himself “neutral leaning favorable”) but was also

The slogan of Delaware State University is “Making Our Mark on the World,” and a faculty member is doing just that by endangering the lives of thousands of people in Ebola-ravaged West Africa. As medical workers, bolstered by the U.S. military, struggle to contain a rapidly expanding epidemic, Prof. Cyril Broderick published a newspaper article in Liberia stating that the same military “manufactured” Ebola as a biological weapon and started the plague by testing it on Africans. Still more, Broderick, a plant biologist, asserts that some of the organizations battling Ebola — including the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, the World Health

Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional elections because your favorite candidate lost his primary bid to an establishment Republican. If you live in Kansas, for example, you can suck your thumb while Democrat ringer Greg Orman beats Republican Senator Pat Roberts. If you’re a Kentucky conservative, you can stay home and b***h about Mitch while Alison “Rubberstamp” Grimes heads to Washington.

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

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.

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

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."

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.

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,
