CNN Poll: Democrats Lose Midterm Election Advantage, GOP Now has the Lead

Pelosi
During and after the government shutdown, the committed leftists and other assorted hysterics hailed the demise of the GOP. Democrats rejoiced at their prospects in 2014, pretending that a government shutdown was the worst thing that could happen to a nation. They believed the GOP was dead in the water, but as it turns out, the only thing more unpopular than the government shutdown is Obamacare.

As Democrats continue to go down with the sinking ship that is Obamacare, the latest polls indicate that they have surrendered their projected 8-point lead over Republicans that they enjoyed two months ago.

Further, the polls indicate that President Obama, once the superstar of the Democrat Party, has become so unpopular that he is dragging down the approval ratings of Democrat congressional candidates.

CNN reports,

A CNN/ORC International survey released Thursday also indicates that President Barack Obama may be dragging down Democratic congressional candidates, and that the 2014 midterm elections are shaping up to be a low-turnout event, with only three in 10 registered voters extremely or very enthusiastic about voting next year.

Two months ago, Democrats held a 50%-42% advantage among registered voters in a generic ballot, which asked respondents to choose between a Democrat or Republican in their congressional district without identifying the candidates. That result came after congressional Republicans appeared to overplay their hand in the bitter fight over the federal government shutdown and the debt ceiling.

But the Democratic lead evaporated, and a CNN poll a month ago indicated the GOP holding a 49%-47% lead. The new survey, conducted in mid-December, indicates Republicans with a 49%-44% edge over the Democrats.

The 13-point swing over the past two months follows a political uproar over Obamacare, which included the botched rollout of HealthCare.gov and controversy over the possibility of insurance policy cancellations due primarily to the new health law.

As Obama and his merry band of tax-and-spenders tried to paint the government shutdown as a product of Republican recalcitrance, the fact is that the partial government shutdown served as a greater illustration of what is on the line in 2014. While the inability of our government to function as it should was certainly unfortunate, the government shutdown was necessary to show Democrats that things in Washington must change if we are going to survive as a nation. Unfortunately, Republicans were unable to muster the courage to stand strong and caved to Democrat demands once again.

Though Democrats hoped that the move would spell doom for the GOP’s midterm prospects, the polls indicate that while the shutdown proved unpopular with voters, the people have lost patience with the big-government proponents who repeatedly assured America that an augmented government can provide for the people, but have failed across the board to do so.

Democratic voters seem particularly unenthusiastic about voting, and that is likely to benefit the GOP. Thirty-six percent of Republicans say they’re extremely or very enthusiastic about voting. That number drops to 22% among Democrats.

Another GOP advantage is the President’s standing with the public: 55% of registered voters say that they are more likely to vote for a congressional candidate who opposes the President than one who supports him and four in 10 say they are likely to vote for a candidate who supports Obama.

“Those kind of numbers spelled early trouble for the Democrats before the 1994 and 2010 midterms, and for the GOP before the 2006 elections,” Holland said.

  1. THE ANSWER TO THE REPUBLICANS’ MAINTAINING THEIR IGNORANCE IN THE POLITICAL ARENA AND CASTING THEIR FURTHER IGNORANCE BY NOT JOINING RANKS WITH THE TEA PARTY IS SIMPLE—-THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEIR TRUE PARTY MEMBERS WANT OF THEM——HOW COULD THEY???THEY ARE TOO BUSY LINING THEIR POCKETS AND SETTING THEIR PERSONNEL AGENDAS BEFORE THE GOOD PRINCIPALS REQUIRED TO BRING THIS COUNTRY BACK TO ITS ORIGINAL CONSTITUTION AND GODLY WAYS.
    THE MAJORITY OF AMERICANS ARE STILL GOOD WHOLESOME LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AND HATE HAVING TRASH PUSHED DOWN THEIR THROATS LIKE OBAMA-CARE, AND “CRACKER BARRELL’S” JOINING UP WITH ANTI-PHIL ROBERTSON’S AND THROWING THEIR SUPPORT THE OTHER WAY BY TAKING PHILS’ PRODUCTS OFF OF THEIR SHELVES.
    BUT, THE CHICK FILET CAME HOME TO ROOST WITH OLE’ CRACKER BARREL TOO!
    NOW ,THE “CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY” HAS PULLED OUT OF CRACKER BARREL AND DON’T EAT THEIR SUNDAY DINNERS THERE ANY MORE,,,HUH! JUST LIKE THE CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY CAME TO THE AIDE OF CHICK FILET BY THE MILLIONS WHEN THE OTHER SIDE WAS BOYCOTTING CHICK FILET.
    GOD AIN’T GONNA’ MESS AROUND WITH THIS” SODOM AND GOMORRAH” STUFF EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE THROWN HIM UNDER THE BUS. HE WILL AWAKEN THE CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY UP AND HE WILL DO A MIRACLELOUS THING BEFORE THIS BATTLE IS OVER.
    YOU CAN BET YOUR LIFE ON THAT FACT!

    1. Using all caps will get you deleted. They do not improve your stand one bit, and are more likely to make readers skip your post, as all caps are hard on the eyes to read. grow up.

    2. seems people complain about the most frivolous things these days…. something a 3 year old might do. Giving advice is one thing…the other, well, it’s just plain childish.

    3. These days? I ran a BBS for 7 years with international message boards. I was a user before that. Using caps has been considered ill mannered and “yelling” in messages on computers around the world now for the last 30 years at least. Get over it, get used to being told it’s rude and shouting. IT IS.

    4. I find your nagging more rude and annoying than any caps could ever make me feel.. You are childish; move on,. this conversation isn’t about whether or not you have sensitive eyes or have control issues…

    5. Asking or expecting someone in a public discussion to comply with established norms, etiquette and protocols is far from being controlling. Posting in caps has nothing to do with eye sensitivity. People can’t hear or see your comments when in writing, and most message boards don’t permit the use of bold or italicized fonts. So using caps WAS adopted as a form of SHOUTING, just as placing things like were used to show emotion or amusement behind a statement that could be used either way. Again, these are established norms accepted by people globally. And constantly SHOUTING at someone, just as in real life, here is considered rude. Whether YOU like it or not.

    6. MARK..NO ONE CARES ABOUT YOUR POLITICAL CORRECTNESS…ALL CAPS IS HOW I WRITE FREEHAND AND I PERSONALLY DO NOT MIND IT, IF YOU DO NOT LIKE IT GO TO A LIBERAL SITE AND WHINE THERE. IT IS PEOPLE LIKE YOU THAT WE HAVE THIS MESS IN THE FIRST PLACE, YOU PROBABLY VOTED FOR OBAMA TWICE…TSK TSK.

    7. Thank you Phyllis!
      I also write in ALL CAPS in my job every day for 38 years, even. All caps is required on ALL HOUSE PLANS, MECHANICAL PLANS, ELECTRICAL PLANS, DETAIL WORKING DRAWINGS FOR SHOP PRODUCTION!
      EASIER TO READ AND NO MISTAKE IN WHAT YOU ARE TRYING TO CONVEY TO THE CONTRACTORS

    8. THANK YOU JUSME…IT’S 36 YEARS FOR ME. A MECHANICAL ENGINEER. PEOPLE CAN READ THE CONTENT AND EVEN THAT DOESNT REALLY MATTER, CAUSE I AM VERY PASSIONATE ABOUT THINGS I BELIEVE IN…MORE POWER TO THOSE OF US THAT ARE NOT PETTY ABOUT OTHERS WRITING/TYPING IN ALL CAPS.

    9. I am in college for a Microsoft Applications Specialist Certification and have been for oil-field safety, mining, & basic employee safety. you don’t have to get stuck in a rut. I understand this is a long time thing but I feel you will get more readers if you take it to entire lower-case.

    10. WOW, JO-JO…YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY GUY IN COLLEGE ARE YOU? NO THANK YOU, I’M NOT TRYING TO GET MORE READERS, TRYING TO WARD OFF THE BULLY ALL-CAPS COPS THAT ARE TURNING AN OTHERWISE GREAT CONVERSATION INTO GARBAGE. IF YOU DO NOT LIKE IT PLEASE GO AWAY. AND BTW- KEEP UP.

    11. thanks for the rather rude reply. the only reason for me adding my education in front of my advice was to assure you I know something about comment etiquette. you want to format things right for your work don’t you? if so why wouldn’t you want the same in your free time stuff? all I was trying to do is share something that I guarantee will get your positions listened to more. its not like im asking you to change your mind about a big matter but this is a leading charge against conservatives and if we start this now we can disable the main argument that conservatives are ignorant because this kind of thing is always what they reference for the attack. now I do agree that in many cases political correctness has gone out of control but to take my advice and not even try it is far worse because you are showing a form of apathy in your writing and that always gets people in trouble with the fault hunters. thank you for reading what I had to say thou you disagree with me. this is the last time I will comment you I promise. again thank you for reading.

    12. Wow, now that matwood17 and joseph Wayne Parker have stroked their ego’s…….are you boys going to pull out rulers next?

    13. Don’t care what you do on the job. I have been using computers for communication starting with BBS’s for at least the last 30 years. Caps are considered yelling and rude. I know what you have to do in drafting. I took the courses. I also know about being polite in public and using conventions. Try it, you’ll like it.

    14. I’m not a liberal, and using caps is considered “yelling”. It’s also considered rude. Most conservatives pride themselves on not being rude to others. Yes, I did say “most”. You evidently are not one of those.

    15. Look, you insist you have been working at a job for 38 years, and you demand others are “liberal” for asking someone not to shout at them in a written conversation. Most mature individuals understand the importance of courtesy in dealing with others. Your lack of respect and maturity indicate you are either socially inept, or you have not been around for 38 years. I would say you are probably about 9 years old and your name gender is incorrect because you are a male trying to make themselves SOUND mature and failing miserably at it. As far as liberalists? A liberal is, generally speaking, someone that demands that everyone else change what THEY are doing and comply with the whims and ideas of that lone single person or small group. They stand in the minority on most issues, not the majority. They have immature personality traits. That sounds more like someone demanding everyone let THEM shout in conversation regardless of the establish norm. Good luck with the rest of your life, you’ll definitely be needing it.

    16. As for me I appreciate the capital letters. I have macular degeneration, and my eye sight is bad.
      .

    17. If you are using a PC with Windows, there is a program built in that allows you to use a “magnifying glass” to read and see things better. Windows 8 the app is called magnifier, win7 and XP it’s a program provided under I think it’s called Access.

    18. NOT ME MARK, I ENJOYED BEING ABLE TO READ IT CUZ BEN SAYS LOUD AND CLEAR WHAT YOU ARE ALL SO AFRAID OF AND THAT IS THE TEA PARTY ! OBAMA LOWERED THE TIDES ALRIGHT(RIDICULOUS STATEMENT TO BEGIN WITH) BUT NOW IT’S A SNEAKER WAVE ROLLING RIGHT UP TO THE SOCIALIST’S THAT HAVE TAKEN OVER THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY. GOOD JOB BEN !

    19. your attitude makes me sick. you need to rethink your approach. I never had to yell to get someone to listen. you using this tactic only proves the liberal’s complaint true. this is what you have been doing “I WANT IT MY WAY OR THE HIGHWAY’ see this attitude is what destroys a nation from within

    20. Joseph, be real. I see the words in CAPS. SO WHAT? A font is a font is a font. I can only hear it in my head. Perhaps your volume control is missing? And, Thank you for quoting Obama’s mind set in all caps. We all know this is true.

    21. the pitiful thing is I am being real. online comment edicate it to never use caps unless you mean to yell. that’s what all caps indicates and the quote seems to also be true with you. don’t you dare insult me with your ignorance of comment edicate again. I’m educated in that field and I’d advise you to consider your words you use carefully.

    22. Joseph, as an “educated” person in that field, I belive that you meant to say etiquette when you were referring to comment edicate??

    23. thank you ken im using a new tablet computer and I tried the spell check but apparently I was so far off that it wouldn’t pick it up. I thought it looked wrong.

    24. The country has been hijacked by a Marxist president and you’re all having a hissy fit about someone using all caps in a post? It’s frivolous arguments like this that the left is using to undermine us and keep us fighting amongst ourselves! The only time I take a post as yelling is when the sentence ends with an exclamation point. Let’s put frivolous arguments like these aside and come together to beat the real enemies we have in common at the polls people.

    25. Just for the record Ben,

      Cracker Barrell only removed the A&E brand “Duck Dynasty” The never stopped carrying the “Duck Commander”, Robertson owned brand.

    26. Do I have a job? I am disabled/retired. No I no longer have a job. Do I l know how to respect others and to use conventions when communicating with others? Yes I do. Do I know how to be polite in public? Yes I do. What does either have to do with your having a job?

  2. THE POLLS ARE SHOWING THAT GOOD OLE’ AMERICANS WITH CONSERVATIVE PRINCIPALS ARE SICK AND TIRED OF BEING PUSHED UNDER THE BUS AND THEY ARE READY TO CLEAN THE WHITE HOUSE OUT.
    IT WILL HAPPEN IN 2014—– IF WE CAN GET THE TRUE NUMBERS TO COME UP IN THE POLLS ACROSS THE COUNTRY!

    1. you can adjust your font size and also zoom in, no need to blind the rest of us. so FAIL on that BS.

  3. I prayed to God for something to happen that would turn the tide against Obama and his communist revolution. He sent Obamacare, complete with computer glitches. God works in mysterious ways.

    1. Just don’t stop, get out and VOTE. The last election was carried by the Democrats (including 1.2 million from graveyards) because Republican voter turnout was nearly zero! You people shame me by your actions, VOTE!

    2. Call me a conspiracy theorist if you like, but I believe the republicans did turn out. I don’t like the idea of using computers to count the votes. Computer programs can be manipulate to give whatever answer you desire it to be. Yes, I say fraud!

    3. I absolutely agree and this will happen again and Harry Reid will still be in Office with Power and the Socilist will re-take the House – then they will Murder our Constitution and say it was We the People who willed it.

    4. Last mid-term, I did not vote for Harry (yes NV here) and it showed I did. Boy did I complain!!! twisted system. And I won’t vote for him AGAIN!!!

    5. Dingy Harry will get his position of power pulled out from under him real soon……then we can celebrate!

    6. Go and participate in your local caucuses. Otherwise, old school RINOs will yet again be the R choice in the general election. By election day, it’s pretty much too late…

  4. Well as fast as internet is, you would have thought they got the message a lot sooner. I don’t think we need polls to determine, that we were pushed to hard and pressed to much. When our jobs are gone, and people are forced into things we didn’t like or want. Also you hit the nerve of Americans by messing with the Bill of Rights. One and two especially are very crucial and sacred to Americans.

  5. Sorry, the only poll that matters comes in November. I heard the same crap in 2012 about how the GOPs had the advantage and then 6 million GOP voters stayed home. Until GOP voters prove they have the advantage in November, I will be forced to believe that at least 6 million GOP voters are lazier than those we berate for abusing entitlements.

    1. It’s not that their lazy , just look at McShame and ObRomney, the same thing, we want Fiscal Conservatives, anything else is worthless, the GOP are gutless POS Traitors, they let Obama disrespect our military and our Constitution. F*** them.

    2. Personally, the problem I have with the Tea Party is that it’s an “all or nothing” deal, meaning, they want their guy/gal and will not compromise in the short run. I think country needs to “stop the bleeding”, which means the Tea Party might have to vote for a more moderate republican…yes I said go and actually vote. The GOP does have the advantage right now, let’s not get greedy!

    3. You are absolutely right. The reason this country is in such a mess is because the right wants a perfect candidate, but even if Jesus himself was running, they’d still manage to find something wrong. Meanwhile, the left takes advantage by running the most extreme, anti-Constitutional candidates. They’ve now got the majority of the courts stocked with judges who are willing to negotiate while it’s nearly impossible to break the cycle of dependency for their constituency. The only people to blame are the ones who stay home because the GOP candidate didn’t wear the same brand of shoes or comb his hair the same way. Complete lunacy. I thought Conservatives were smarter than that, but apparently not.

    4. I’m not sure it’s all or nothing. The Tea Party members just don’t trust moderates. You can never tell exactly how they will vote. Lindsay Grahamm could have stopped Obamacare from ever coming out on the Senate floor to be voted on as he was on that committee to decide which bills will be presented to the Senate. He was the only Republican to vote yes. All the other seven voted no. I say he is a turncoat and should be thrown out in the next election.

    5. Jesus can’t get nominated, because the precinct caucuses happen while Dancing With the Stars and Monday Night Football are on, and nobody shows up but the hacks who play for keeps. This is a big part of “all politics is local”…Duh…

    6. I will never vote for anyone I do not believe in!!!!!!!! Just because they are republican doesn’t mean they are good. Get a real conservative and quit splitting the party. MCcain or Romney last time? REALLY It would have been just like voting for ofukup himself. As I said if I do not believe in the candidate running I will not vote.

    7. I would take a Congress of 535 John McCains before a single Harry Reid. It should take a PhD or a genius IQ to understand that you get more with a person who represents your values 50% of the time as opposed to one who represents your values exactly 0% of the time. Of course, not every candidate is as extreme as John McCain so it’s not the extreme RINO candidates that people aren’t voting for; it’s the ones who people disagree with over one or two issues. How foolish.

    8. The problem is, McCain is already in the senate with Reid so your point is? McCain did not run against Reid, he ran Against ofukup As I said I don’t like ofukup either. But I refuse to vote for evil on either side republican or democrat. If you vote for for what you think is the lesser of two evil’s you still voted evil. Sorry I will sit it out until there is someone I can believe in.

    9. That’s entirely up to you, You can call me foolish all you want but a vote for evil on either side is still a vote for evil. You mean if I don’t think you’re way I’m foolish right? Now who is being foolish? If I don’t like a candidate I will not vote for them, It is that easy and it is my vote, call me whatever you want. Name calling and thinking you are smarter than someone else because of the way you vote will not get them yo you’re way of thinking. Do you think Romneycare would have been any better than Obamacare? Do you think there would not have been a run for you’re gun’s? What makes you think without a shred of proof your candidate was better than who I voted for? By the way I did vote but not for either Romney nor Obama. I wrote in Rand Paul. I always vote for who I believe is the best candidate not Always who is at the top of either party. So while you keep splitting the party by voting for a liberal republican I will keep voting who I feel is best for the job.

    10. So, what if Rand Paul had gotten on the ballot as the Republican nominee? Get thee over to your local precinct caucus, and maybe we’ll find out… I’d vote for him too…

    11. No, I figured you do vote. I’m just saying that if you also make a fuss and vote at your local precinct caucuses, in order to nominate actual conservatives/libertarians/whatever you like, you and the rest of us could have better options when election day comes around. This is what the left/progressives (of both parties) do, in order to determine results ahead of and regardless of the actual election outcome. Makes sense to me for us to do the same…

    12. So Marty, go to your local precinct caucuses and work your butt off to nominate and elect folks you do believe in. That’s where you can actually have a meaningful voice. Once the ballot is set, it’s usually too late. The crooks know this and work accordingly. If conservatives aren’t at least that smart, they/we deserve to get hosed…repeatedly…trench warfare is so named for a reason…

    13. Who said I don’t? I vote every election, but some on this thread seem to think that I should vote what they vote just to get a republican in office. Sorry but I will not do that,
      I will and always have voted for who I think is right for the job in question. And Romney nor Obama were right for the job, so I wrote in Rand Paul. And some on here seem to think I wasted my vote.

      However it is my vote, and I will vote for who I think is right, Not what someone else thinks is right. And I think if everyone would do that, we would get good people in office. Forget party lines vote for who is best for the job. if they are not on the ballot write them in I do.

      Tell me if there were no party lines do you think things would be different? If all they could run on were their name and record who would we vote for? What would we fight about? Certainly not republican or democrat, who would we blame when our guy didn’t win?. There wouldn’t be a party. They would actually have to campaign all states there would be no red or blue states. People would actually get to see what and who they are voting for, Party lines are there to keep the people divided.

    14. Screw more moderate! Start working now to nominate actual conservatives, rather than (again) hoping someone else will do our work for us, then settling for the next old school crook that gets nominated by the slimeballs that actually show up and work the system in their own interests. The only way to win is to beat them at their own game, and it starts in the first inning, at the precinct level. After that, it’s too late…

    15. Exactly. For god sakes vote! No matter WHO runs opposite Democrats. We have to take control from the Senate!!!

    16. By the way, I wasn’t going to say anything, but this has been nagging me all day long. Who disrespected our military more-Obama or the people who stayed home and didn’t vote?

    17. If people could not vote Dem multiple times, and dead people voting Dem, and election boxes switching votes to O’Blamer, and military votes not received, we could see a different picture.

    18. We are not lazy. We just don’t like being lied to by what are presumably our representatives. Conservative trough and through

    19. Why so they can lie to me like Rubio and his immigration. Or Mcconell and not voting for clouture. In my book a few true conservatives out there. Ted Cruz is one. Paul Ryan Rino to the core. So is Bohner. I refuse to be taken for granted like the democrats take the black vote. So unless its incumbent or a true conservative no money and no vote

    20. a lot of states didn’t count absentee votes. my husband was in OK but registered in FL his home of record and after he sent his absentee vote in he got a letter telling him they didn’t accept it. be DID NOT vote for Obama.
      there were a lot of US military overseas or not in the state they are registered to vote in so their votes didn’t get counted

  6. who cares about all caps. He is not yelling. He wants to read it and i like all caps too. i hate that people say it means you are yelling. It is the words he was writing. Get off the criticism of stuff that is not important. GET RID OF OBAMA AND I AM YELLING THAT.

    1. Using caps has been “yelling” for at least the last 30 years I’ve been computing. It started on BBS systems before the internet. Get used to being told it’s yelling. IT IS.

    2. MAYBE TO YOU AND ALL THE OTHER WHINERS OUT THERE, BUT IF YOU READ THE CONTEXT [IF YOU CAN READ] YOU CAN DETERMINE WHAT IS OR IS NOT SHOUTING…STOP BEING A PETTY BULLY, LIVE AND LET LIVE, YOU ARE SOUNDING JUST LIKE A LIBERAL JERK…[AND I'M NOT SHOUTING :) ]

  7. We have to get the Senate away from Dirty Harry Reid. It is the only way we survive as a Republic. And effectively Neuter HRH Oba-Mao Tse Tung for the last 2 years of his time in Public Housing….

  8. The Republicans did NOT shut down the government. Harry “the senile” Reid and that person in our WH did that by being babies. You know, play the game my way or I will throw a fit!

    1. At the end, the only thing the GOP was asking for was that the congress and staffs MUST use Obamacare (if it’s good enough for us it should be good enough for them), and an extension of the rollout because Obamacare wasn’t ready yet. Well I think the web site proved them right on the latter as well. OBAMA said “I will not negotiate. Period”. Who was it that wasn’t willing to talk? Who was it that forced this shutdown? Of course it was Reid and Pelosi and Obama. The Republicans were NOT being unreasonable in their demands.

    2. Not to mention that obama changed this obamacare bill 7 times, and that is not constitutional, only congress can change it…..so stay in hawaii, obama, we don’t want you back in DC!

  9. Pelosi and her Democrat friends really screwed Americans .With this Obamacare law . Now in 2014 100 Million Americans are screwed .

  10. We should all be vetting candidates that love country and the people before their wallets already. PLEASE NO MORE LAWYERS IN CONGRESS, rather see a farmer, business person or soldier in Congress going forward. Lawyers have continuously screwed the US Constitution.

    1. Excellent point, Joanne. Whatever happened to the common man (or woman) representing common, hard-working people? One of the problems is the number of people sitting around with their hands out is growing. They are not about to vote for someone who believes that working for a living is a noble profession. They want another candy man.

    2. We’ve had enough politicians – we do need common folks in there for a while to run the place like they run their own budgets. Real people spend within their own means – politicians spend within the people’s means.

    3. and so did George Washington and he took the time to run this Country with the fear of God and Honesty and so did the rest of our Presidents up until the Politicians saw a way of turning this into a profession and sit on top of the banks and keep their coffers filled at all time with OUR MONEY, time to go back and set time limits, serve your term and go back to work and join our ranks with social security. have a happy retirement, just like WE the PEOPLE

    4. Amen to no more lawyers! Lawyers know how to “litigate”, debate, bump there gums together just to hear themselves talking, but they are NOT problem solvers. instigators and agitators would be closer to correct.

  11. Polls, Polls,Polls, I don’t believe any of them. Who are the people being polled? I have never been polled, and I don’t know anyone who has. Who are they, and where do they live? Is the poll a good representation of the population, or just one portion?

    1. I was just saying the same exact thing to somebody last week. I’m 60 years old and have never been polled about anything and don’t know anyone that has ever been polled. What is this some secret part of the population????

  12. Don’t worry. Republicans will vote for immigration and than we wont turn up to vote for them. At least I am not and neither will a lot of my buddies. They take us for granted same as democrats take the black vote. SO in conclusion leave it to the republicans to screw this up and we will be screwed

    1. I, too, am frustrated with the Republicans, they seem to be more concerned about getting re-elected than what their constituents want & need. That mixed with the illegal voting numerous times, & like Bil Greene said about dead people’s votes being counted, makes me not believe these poll numbers. Picture Voter ID is definitely needed. You can make a difference if you sign up as election judges & clerks in your precincts and/or districts or volunteer as poll watchers. These places are controlled by mostly Democrats as the Republicans don’t want to do that job. We need to get involved in all areas during elections.

    1. They need to get out of OUR WHITE HOUSE, this administration is not American. The ones that were born here are working with others to destroy this great nation.

  13. It is time “We The People” have our say heard by the Media of this Country and allow it to mean what we say not what they want us to believe! God gave us this Country, He gave us our Rights and He has given us Our Freedoms! God Lead the Men and Women that Founded this Country that was Founded on Godly Principles. God does not play games and “We The People” are tired of playing the same games Obama is wanting us to play and we are going to stand on the Principles this Country was founded upon not what he is dictating to us that we must follow. I Pray Everyday that America will wake up and by what I have reading here it looks like the groundswell has started and those that are in the positions to make a difference had better start listening to what “We The People” Need and Deserve what is best for this Country as a whole.
    May God Bless America Again!

  14. SHE LOOKS LIKE SOMEONE JUST THREW WATER ON HER, AND IS STARTING TO MELT ! OOOOOOOOH WHAT AH WORLD,WHAT AH WORLD !

  15. Let’s not get too enthusiastic, the Republicans are known for stealing defeat from the jaws of victory. It’s great to identify the problems, but Republicans and the Tea Party cannot come up with answers and clearly state them! We need something like “Contract with America 2″ and have it presented in the same way! There has to be an answer to Immigration without deporting 12 million people. We need educational reform for colleges (it’s not that we don’t have students wanting to be engineers, doctors, nurses, scientists, it’s that the teacher unions keep class sizes down and not enough students can get the pre-requisite classes to transfer in a timely manner, so we import those high wage jobs while Americans are falling further behind!)

    1. Republicans and Tea Party are two different animals. Republicans of late are basically Democrat Lite. Tea Party represents the grassroots feeling of abandonment common to many truly conservative former Republicans, joined by many other unlabeled conservatives. Sadly, many
      Tea Partiers are politically naive, and certainly are not in the same league with the old school movers and shakers when it comes to dealing in results. The phrase “bringing a knife to a gunfight” comes to mind. Hopefully, Team O and their financiers will manage to really piss Real America off sufficiently that this will change…meanwhile, the clock is ticking toward assorted impending events that will be real game changers…looks like things are coming down to the wire…

  16. If the top democratic leaders of the 1950s and 1960s could see where the current democratic leaders have taken us and our country. They as a group would roll over in their Graves. I ask you what happen to all of the old Blue Dog`s (conservative democrats ?).

    1. No such thing as a “conservative” Democrat. It’s all just smoke and mirrors.

      In the 50s they were torpedoing Joe McCarthy for exposing Communism in Hollywood, and firing Douglas MacArthur for wanting to finish off Communist China after retaking Korea.

      In the 60s they were in the streets with the Weathermen, the Weather Underground, and the Black Panthers, trying to stop the U.S. Military from winning against the Communists in Vietnam.

      Nothing has changed in the Democrat Party. Only now, they have seized power in the form of the Marxist-in-Chief, Barack Insane Obama, and his Minister-of-Justice, Eric Holder. And instead of having Josef Goebbels as the Propaganda Minister, they have 95% of the media covering up for them.

      Marxists are Marxists are Marxists, then, now, and always.

  17. “Obamacare Unraveled,” starring Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Kathleen Sebelius, and Barack Insane Obama, coming to Liberal talk radio, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, al Jazeera America, and PBS this November. Tune in and hear the shrieks as the election results come in.

  18. Unfortunately, even if the repubs won every Senate seat up for election while not losing any, that would still leave them 1 vote short of the necessary 2/3 needed to over ride a presidential veto, or to convict an impeached president. Which means we are stuck with O’Drama, and O’Dramacare until 2016 at the earliest.

    1. I wouldn’t be surprised see a couple democrats flip to become republicans or independents in the very near future. Joe Minchin being one of them.

  19. Can we believe these polls..or are they telling the GOP that they are doing better just to make them complacent and then the DEMS can clean up on yet another election…….

  20. You can only Fool some of the people some of the time. But they will finally figure out who is to blame.

  21. I voted Republican for many years, but now I don’t trust very many of the Republicans and none of the Democrats. I think the Tea Party has the right idea. Too many of the moderate Republicans can’t be trusted. The Senate committee, I can’t remember the name, that decides what bills are given out to the entire Senate had 8 Republican members. If all 8 had voted no Obamacare would never have been sent to the entire Senate for a vote. As it is, Lindsay Graham voted yes, and he was “supposedly” a conservative. These long time Senators are too concerned about retaining their seat than voting for something that may be too “unpopular.” He should be voted out and try a new Senator from that state.

  22. The chickens are coming home to roost, can not the voters of CA send this ancient bitty to live in the Villages or something? How do you reelect a nutcase?

  23. I knew O-Care would be his downfall.Dems must be hit personally for them to feel what their government is doing. My health insurance was cancelled and then re-instated for the month of January. What do I do after that, well I don’t know but what I do know is that Dems were cancelled too. They are as upset as I am. I’ll take it if it destroys the O-Regime.

  24. The Dems are totally corrupt and criminal………and no one should be voting for more criminals and corrupt politicians.

  25. Dont be fooled by this ment to be Distraction. We still have these Violations against our Constitution that no Journalism wants to mentionher than Fox. We still have these FEMMA CAMPS that is ready to become Operational as soon as these Socialist Liberals overthrow our Constitution through the Washington D.C. Federal Court & also the Supreme Court. E.P.A. has disputed the Supreme Court Unchallenged. The Constitutional Violations have went UNCHALLENGED since the bashing of Supreme Court Rhino Socialist Roberts. You Guttless Cowards who never once rose against this will soon get to say Goodbye to your Freedom real soon. YOU COWARDS DONT DESERVE YOUR FREEDOM !!

  26. Many tipping points…Phil Robertson and DEMOCARE are the two that are shaking people awake to the left, big government, redistribution of wealth, Marxist that now run the Democratic Party. So far left JFK would be considered as Tea Partier.

    1. Phil for President. He has cojones, speaks plain, and knows how to shoot & how to earn money in the real world. Just what the USA needs right now…

  27. LOOK people, gov. has known better then you whats best for you for decades. Tax, Welfare, open borders man we could go on and on. Billions tring to find out why an apple is sweet for gods sake… Tell me one reason why this is our fault? Vote all you want, it won’t do any good now. He will change so many laws by then you will be in jail. Our chance has come and gone. We missed the buss. We have to march… Remember the 2 million motor cycles in DC? Then Replace them all and take away there paycheck we don’t get payed for doing a terrible job….. There not scared of you yet

  28. Let’s not count our eggs before they are hatched. Get all your friends together, drive them to the polls. We will need every conservative vote this mid term. The dead and the illegals will be coming out in droves. Don’t sit home like some did this past election. VOTE or suffer the consequence. There is no way to Impeach Obama unless we have the Senate and the House…those are the facts. You want Obama impeached as much as I do. We can do this.

  29. come november 2014, the conservatives, will take the house and senate, artlcles of impeachment will be brought up on Obama, Biden, and Holder, Ried and Pelosi after losing the election, will be brought up on criminal charges, and the same will hold true after the impeachment for obama, biden, and holder. hillary will be arrested for benghazi, Soon after the trial starts for these criminals, it will be uncovered that Obama was never a natural citizen, and will be tried for treason and deported to an African jail, where he will be lauded as the “next” mandela. Hillary will be facing life in prison, while bill will celebrate with a blow job, Ried will die suddenly of a heart attack during his trial, and pelosi and holder will be imprisoned for life after they are found guilty on multiple charges. All of obamas laws will be stricken from existence, and America will celebrate during the new independence day. OH, Say Can You See….IT!
