A Georgia Senate runoff poll points to challenges for Walker, Warnock
It's only a 2-person runoff so the % must add up to 100% in the end. There's 2% not accounted for in the poll.
Yeah. I've basically had to live in Orange County for the past 2+ years and one thing is for certain; politically, it's not my cup of tea, but it's not nearly as solidly red as it's been in the past. A lot of younger people who grew up there are coming to voting age or have done so in the last 10 or so years.

That would be the ones who voted for "other" because their protest vote somehow means something to them.
San Francisco Chronicle - Democrats now control all House seats along the Pacific Ocean for first time in memory
Hope they do some good.
Connecticut Dems didn’t lose any U.S. House seats either (there are no elected Rs from CT in the federal government). New England is holding the line even though NY lost some D seats.
It’s tougher for those of us in reddish-purple Southern states.
I don't know how you guys survive there without losing your minds.
Here in NC, we have Governor Cooper's veto pen and no R supermajority in the General Assembly to keep Berger and Moore in line. But there's only one Democrat that needs to hold the line to make Cooper's vetoes stick on abortion restrictions and other things.
NC Rs keep gerrymandering the s**t out of our state and they repeatedly got slapped down by the D-led NC Supreme Court. Unfortunately, Rs flipped the NC Supreme Court majority. Now Berger and Moore are going to redraw the lines to their liking as long as the R judges approve.
I'm so frustrated with my state. I'm seriously thinking about leaving in the next two years if state Rs don't get their butts handed to them in 2024.
I don't blame you for wanting to move. They couldn't pay me enough to move South. Of course I did hear one news commentator say such moves only help push the idea of a civil war.
The thing is, Berger and Moore are fighting against an electorate that's getting bluer by the day. And this past midterm, several Republican state reps ran UNOPPOSED (like Berger) -- and I hope that changes in 2024.
Rachel Bitecofer told me that North Carolina is "absolutely winnable under negative partisanship" and that any future Democrats running for state or U.S. Senate seats need to ditch the typical advisors and strategists. Use the Republican "fight dirty" strategy against them -- boil down a talking point and frame it as "[insert Republican's name here] wants to steal your Social Security and let your child be murdered in their classrooms."
Oh.....so you mean they should tell the truth?

Happy to see Petolta win.
Yeah.....when your opponent just bails on her constituency in the middle of a statewide term, people have this tendency to hold it against them and not want them in statewide office. This was more of a referendum on Palin than anything else. I think it's likely, though not assured, that had Begich beaten out Palin for 2nd place, the result would have been different. If I'm reading it right, only about 25% of those voting for Begich had Peltola above Palin. It seems likely that virtually all of those voting for Palin would not have had Peltola above Begich. At the very least, the vote would have been a lot closer.
It's definitely tempting to move but if you move and every other non-Republican leaves then the state will only slide further into hell and bring the US with it because those Senators and Representatives will be Republican by default.
Republican influence needs to be diluted, not concentrated.
Why should Walker get a break on a 3 mil residence while there are plenty of starving Texas who have nothing?
He's rich and Republican.
