Dems would need to win nationwide by 11 points to retake House. The analysis identified Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio and Texas as "unresponsive" states where a party can "increase its vote share by 10 or 20% without gaining a single seat." #NCPOL#NCGAhttps://t.co/Wtzz25SCb8
Which is all the more reason to focus heavily on Legislative races, at least here in NC. I'm still seeing way too many Dems talking only about Congressional contests, when there are 170 NCGA seats in play this year.
I seem to recall several folks telling me we shouldn't engage in opposition research during that campaign, that we should just present positives of our candidate because voters were tired of negative ads. Apparently they weren't tired enough...
#ncpol@SenatorBurr of #NC recvd nearly 7 million from #NRABloodMoney Now he's calling their Senate Intel Comm that their investigation is coming to a close too! He cited "no Russian collusion" I will say this again, this Russian takeover is much bigger than some can imagine
Burr hasn't had an original thought in his head since he made his first clay ash tray and it broke in half in the kiln. Both he and Devin Nunes consider several people refusing to testify as "no evidence," which makes both of them parties to the collusion itself.
Republicans are not done with their voter suppression efforts:
According to Rep. Steinberg (R-Chowan) this second-effort to limit access for North Carolina voters will be wrapped in red meat: a cap on income tax rates and an amendment protecting hunting and fishing. #ncga#ncpol
Regardless how you feel about the DCCC throwing its support behind a Primary candidate, it makes no sense to have five Democrats running for one hard-to-win Congressional seat while Legislative seats in the same area go uncontested.
Standard operating procedure in Popeland. If a poll or report does *not* originate from a Koch-funded right-wing institution, there must be some inherent bias in it. That's the danger of living with propaganda for so long: pretty soon the real stuff seems out of whack.
