Democrats are taking over the Senate in 2020 ... Part II

As polls have shown for two years, Moscow Mitch McConnell is going to lose control of the Senate after Election Day.

The only difference now is that Democrats might add to their majority seats from deep red states like Alaska Mississippi and Kansas!

Republicans are in DEEP SHIT.

And, the Repukes know it as well. They’re freaking out. November 3 is very likely going to be quite a bad night for them. The Dems are going to pick up seats that no one ever expected.

So which states do we think the Democrats are winning if the vote were held right now? I say AZ, CO, IA, ME, and NC (where the sex scandal hasn't moved the polls).

That should cover Dem losses in AL and MI if such are to be. With a little momentum we could also get SC, MT, GA (at least one), AK, and maybe even MS and TX. Then say hello to two new blue senators from DC!

by Anonymousreply 910/13/2020

R9, I would add Kansas to this list of possible pick-ups. Barbara Bollier, the Democratic nominee (who used to be a Repub), has been endorsed by former Republican Senator Nancy Kassebaum, for whom Bollier worked. Remember, in 2018 Kansas elected a Democratic Governor.

AZ and CO are done. I don't see GOP holding those. ME is 99% Dem pick up. And it looks like NC is also about 80-90% as "sex scandal" did not appear to damage Cunningham at all.

I would say IA and MT are 50/50.

And everything else depends on how badly Trump performs in each of those states.

Today's Morning Consult polls look outstanding for most of them except for SC.

I am praying for a Senate takeover but remained extremely cautious. If more Republican Governors take the route of Abbott in Texas (he won last night the 5th Circuit ruling and is gloating) or Republicans continue to do things like the ballot boxes in California, then I doubt if the Senate switches. Voter turnout with votes that are counted is critical.

Trump is anti-Iraq war, R6.

Graham was one of the biggest promoters of the Iraq war.

Graham also trashed Trump in 2016 before prostituting himself and the voters remember that.

Graham is also gay and many South Carolinians are learning about it for the first time.

Harrison and Trump both want economic stimulus and unemployment benefits. Graham is helping McConnell block it.

R20 - you do know that if no candidate gets an outright 50% majority, the two top plurality ones (Ossoff and Purdue) go to a Dec runoff, which are skewed towards Republicans. Maybe.. just maybe... Warnock will bring more black voters for his runoff at the same time... we'll see.

by Anonymousreply 3510/13/2020

R35, Ossoff and Perdue are running in a separate race from Warnock. Warnock's race (in which he's ahead with a plurality) is the one with multiple candidate from each party that goes to a runoff.

by Anonymousreply 3610/13/2020

Both statewide races need 50% which is how Abrams ended up in a runoff two years ago.

by Anonymousreply 3710/13/2020

But it always goes to a runoff between only two candidates who DON'T need 50%.

Ossoff and Perdue will face off in a runoff like Georgia's other senate seat because neither have ever polled above 50%.

It would be nice if Ossoff could just blow Perdue and the Libertarian Hazel right out-of-the-water on Nov. 3, especially because most of Hazel's voters are likely to switch to Perdue.

But that's unlikely. Let's just hope Ossoff wins the plurality on Nov. 3.

That they can make some sort of play to connive and conspire with each states electors to give him an electoral college win. I can't see that too many of these private citizens want to risk the wrath of furious voters by ignoring who their state voted for and instead throw the election to him

Those bitches were sniveling about receiving nasty emails from voters in 2016. They overturn the will of their states voters, they will have more than nasty emails to worry about.

I don't think they'd be stupid enough to do it, especially since they would be doxxed in a New York minute but some people are so arrogant they think they're untouchable.

If he or Barr makes that sort of play, I can see a huge push to completely eliminate the electoral college since it will be obvious it's a hindrance to fair elections.

It’s Not Easy Being an Optimist in Maine

We have late-spring storms and high-stakes Senate races. But we also have lobster and Patty Griffin.

By Jennifer Finney Boylan

Contributing Opinion Writer

Oct. 14, 2020, 5:04 a.m. ET

The optimist, according to an old joke, believes that this is the best of all possible worlds. The pessimist fears that the optimist is right.

Mainers are accustomed to second-guessing good news. Which is what you’d do, too, if you’d experienced enough late-season ice storms. This year, over 200,000 of us lost power in the wake of a furious blizzard. In April.

Maybe this is what gives so many Mainers a dark turn of mind. There’s a story about the time Mark Twain gave a reading at a bookstore near Bangor, to a crowd that mostly sat there in stony silence. Afterward, Twain heard a couple talking. The wife said, “I think he might have been the funniest person I’ve heard in my life.”

The husband replied, “I’ll tell ya, he was so funny, it was all I could to do keep from laughing.”

Maine voters aren’t laughing this fall. Everything feels too high-stakes. Our Senate race — Senator Susan Collins versus the Maine House speaker, Sara Gideon — might well decide whether the Democrats take back that chamber.

But it’s not just the high stakes that have us on edge; it’s also the race itself. This month, the Wesleyan Media Project described the Maine Senate race as the most negative in the country. (One of the nicest of the negative ads says, “Gideon had her cake — and ate it too!”) A Bangor Daily News poll released last week found Ms. Gideon and Senator Collins within a single point of each other. Last month, in an act that one lawmaker called “political terrorism,” unknown persons in Bowdoinham burned a sculpture of a donkey. And over in Rockland, two police officers were fired after beating porcupines to death with their nightsticks.

The porcupine slayers don’t appear to have been politically motivated, but the story feels very 2020 to me. These are dark days, man.

Last Monday, in hopes of finding a little escape, my wife and I drove out to Acadia National Park, on Mount Desert Island. Our route took us through both of our state’s congressional districts — the reliably blue First, which went for Hillary Clinton in 2016, and the rural and more conservative Second, which went for Donald Trump. I tried to get a sense of how the 2020 Maine vote is going to go by counting yard signs. My poll gave an edge to Joe Biden and Ms. Gideon — but just barely. (There was also one sign still up for Bernie Sanders, an act of defiance I found very on brand.)

A Trump-Pence sign in Trenton had been edited by someone with a can of spray paint; the candidates’ names had been overwritten with a big orange “$750” (the amount of taxes Mr. Trump paid in 2016).

As we drove toward the coast we also saw lots of ghosts and skeletons and gravestones, evidence that many Mainers take Halloween almost as seriously as Christmas. In one yard a pair of zombie hands rose out of a tomb. Not far away was a sign: “TRUMP.”

It was impossible, in looking at that display, not to wonder whether the president, too, might somehow rise from the near-dead. It’s happened before, of course. Four years ago — almost to the day — we were all reeling from the “grab them by the pussy” tape. How confident I was then that Americans would find this kind of talk repulsive! How sure I was that we were just weeks away from electing our first female president! I was wrong, of course.

The pessimist says, “Things can’t get any worse.” The optimist says, “Oh, yes they can!”

Offsite Link
by Anonymousreply 6010/14/2020

Things look better for Joe Biden now than they did for Hillary Clinton then, if you believe the polls anyhow. But then the Mainer in me remembers the six months of winter lurking beyond every summer day and those zombie hands crawling out of the ground.

In Acadia, Deedie and I rode our bikes through the sparkling autumn sunshine, drove our car up Cadillac Mountain, ate popovers and chowder at the Jordan Pond House. Later that night we settled into chairs at a Bar Harbor restaurant called Havana, where Deedie had seafood paella and I had the lobster moqueca, simmered in a coconut broth with haddock and red peppers. It was really good.

The next day we went down to Thunder Hole, a rock formation where the Atlantic crashes into a cavern. We sat down on a chunk of granite, two old people with our arms wrapped around each other, feeling the spray on our faces. We had been there together as a young couple 32 years ago. Now we were back.

The day before, Supreme Court Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas had issued a rant against marriage equality, which they called a “novel constitutional right” in defiance of religious liberty.

As we sat there by the sea, I felt a stranger’s eyes upon us. It was a look of disapproval I’m accustomed to by now, but it still hurts.

I wondered whether the coming election will decide not just the fate of the presidency and the Senate, but that of my marriage as well.

On the way home we passed a Unitarian church with a sign out front that said: “Defeat Hate. Vote Love.” On the radio we heard Patty Griffin singing “Mother of God.” Something as simple as boys and girls gets tossed all around and then lost in the world. Something as hard as a prayer on your back can wait a long time for an answer.

Patty Griffin is from Maine, too.

Deedie and I got back to Belgrade Lakes in time to watch the vice-presidential debate that night. The next morning I went outside to split some wood. The sky was blue from stem to stern, and as I stood in the dooryard, holding my ax, I felt a rush of good cheer. Could I trust the optimism I felt? Could it be that just this once, my hopes would not get crushed, as the saying goes, “flatter than a pounded hake”?

As I stood there by the woodpile I heard a sound. I looked over to see a porcupine emerging from the woods. He was the fastest porcupine I ever saw. If you didn’t know better, you’d think he had the whole Rockland police force chasing after him.

It was so funny, it was all I could do to keep from laughing.

WaPo: Republicans may already be laying the groundwork to try to destroy a Joe Biden presidency.

A GOP strategist who has been consulting with Senate campaigns said Republicans have been carefully laying the groundwork to restrain a Biden administration on federal spending and the budget deficit by talking up concerns about the price tag for another round of virus relief. The thinking, the strategist said, is that it would be very hard politically to agree on spending trillions more now and then in January suddenly embrace fiscal restraint.

I hate that these old people just keep hanging on to power forever and don't know when to call it a career. Hopefully she will be like that other old codger, Grassley, and will step aside as the leader of the committee after the election. Seems like a good fit for Klobuchar to take over.

DiFi’s behavior during this hearing was despicable. We are in a fight for this country, and her making nice with the a Lady G was totally unnecessary and extremely unhelpful. This whole nomination is a con-job. Does anyone think that a Senator Adam Schiff or Senator Katie Porter would have said something this stupid and inane to the Senatrice:

[quote] "I just want to thank you. This has been one of the best set of hearings that I've participated in," she said. "Thank you so much for your leadership."

🙄 Ugh.

Step down lady. Thanks for your service. But make room for someone more in touch.

I'm not surprised she hugged La Senatrice. Diane Feinstein is one of the most talented legislators ever, who also had a lot of re-elections and the Queen's hair throughout her long, long, long career. Despite that she had a good justice committee attendance record, which is hard to find on Capitol Hill. At a time when gay senators were oppressed BEYOND BELIEF, they identified with her struggles and she theirs.

Behind the scenes there is probably a completely different picture. Remember when LG was caught on camera congratulating Adam Schiff on his impeachment speech. Maybe she knows Miss Lindsey is being blackmailed. I don't want to excuse her behavior, or his, just trying to understand what's going on behind all the scenes of crazy shit show.

Also, when hopefully all this is behind us and prosecutes shed some light on all the mobster deals the GOP was making with dictators while undermining western allies; one of the quotes that will not be forgotten is Miss Lindsey saying

"If we nominate Trump, we will get destroyed... and we will deserve it!"

This is an interesting thread. It occurs to me as a reminder to myself and others that no matter who wins, Americans need to grasp that politics is a hands on sport--we have to call, email, forget the online petitions, send actual letters and even travel to DC to confront our officials with what we want and expect. That is democracy and has been lacking for a long time. People power!

by Anonymousreply 151Last Friday at 4:40 PM

No, R141. Warnock is doing well financially and even has a slight lead--although not enough of a lead to avoid a runoff in January. Personally, I don't think he's going to pick up the 9 or10 points to avoid that, so being in the top two will have to suffice for now and we can turn our attention back to that race a little later.

I'll say that the three races that are the closest (and cheapest ad markets) are:

BARBARA BOLLIER vs. Roger Marshall -KS

MIKE ESPY vs. Cindy Hyde-Smith - MS

AL GROSS vs. Dan Sullivan - AK

But also, circling back to the previous thought; if you just want to play spoiler, you could donate to the Libertarian candidate in Arkansas. Ricky Dale Harrington, who is polling at 39% and has the hateful Tom Cotton down to 49%. If Harrington can keep him there or below, that race will also be forced into a runoff in January.

After 36 years, Kentucky can do better than Mitch McConnell. We endorse Amy McGrath.

[quote] McConnell has made it perfectly clear that his only passion is the pursuit of power, his own and that of the Republican Party. For that reason alone, we would endorse his opponent. Luckily for voters, McGrath, a former fighter pilot and public servant, would make an excellent senator who would actually put the needs and interests of Kentuckians above her own.

[quote] McGrath has proven that she understands that Kentuckians are suffering from the failure to address the economic, educational and health care needs that have left the state at the bottom of most rankings during McConnell’s tenure, suffering that has only worsened during the COVID-19 pandemic. She is a centrist Democrat who knows the good that government can do.

I would also suggest a donation to Col. Moe Davis, the progressive, pro-gay Democrat who is running against that pretty-boy idiot Madison Cawthorne. Davis has an exceptionally impressive resume as a lawyer and a judge in the military as well as a law professor.

Cawthorne has an empty resume other than being a huge tRump supporter. He was home-schooled and then when he went to college he flunked out with D grades in his first semester. He claims to own some sort of business, which has had one client. He’d be 25 when the Congress is seated immediately January.

He was injured in an automobile accident which has left him in a wheelchair. He claimed — falsely — that he was going to attend the Naval Academy, but was thwarted by the car accident. Turns out that was false. He had been rejected before the accident. He also has racked up some sexual harassment allegations. Oh, and he was thrilled to go to Germany to see Hitler’s bunker. It was on his bucket list and he referred to Hitler as the Führer. 🙄

This will not necessarily be an easy race to win — it was Mark Meadows’s seat before he became tRump’s CoS and NC is heavily gerrymandered — though the contrast between these two candidates could not be more stark. The debates were painful to watch because Cawthorne is clearly as dumb as a box of rocks and he was up against a seasoned and experienced prosecutor, professor, and judge. But it may now be competitive. This one would be a sweet victory.

Yes, Mitch may win. Kentucky is a tough state for Democrats. We won the governor’s race in 2018 only because the Repuke was so dreadful. Bur we won no other statewide races.

Mitch will not, however, be the Majority Leader. He is nevertheless counting on screwing things up by exercising his filibuster rights. But that option may disappear. He is responsible for blowing up all the norms of the Senate thus far, so he shouldn’t be surprised if the Dems follow suit and ditch the filibuster, thereby robbing the Turtle from the ability to block Biden’s agenda.

And, yes, I know that it was Harry Reid who first started dismantling the filibuster by removing it for executive appointments and the lower federal courts. Why did he do that? Because Mitch was blocking so many of Obama’s nominees.

Update from Kentucky.

I was talking to my manager on Friday. I had gone for poll worker training on Thursday so took the day off work to attend and she was asking me about it. Then she says to me, "I guess I should vote in this election. I've never voted before but I think I should now."

She lives in Kentucky. Never voted. I told you all that only 30% of kentuckians vote. Her reasoning for not voting? "I'm not into politics".

I told her it doesn't matter. She needs to vote and I told her to visit the League of Women Voters website for ballot issues and who is running. Non partisan information.

She said she intends to vote and was glad she could visit a website for info instead of trying to read a ballot at the polling place.

It's amazing to me how many people don't think "politics" affects their quality of life. Especially in kentucky. Kentucky Democrats need to educate those people and get them engaged to vote.

Oh please, take that cunt Ernst out...please.

I think Iowans are pissed after she didn't know the price of soybeans lol her opponent knew all about corn when they asked her. Ernst then tried copying her answer for corn as if they hadn't asked her about soybeans. It was a bizarre exchange that went viral. Then she ultimately said maybe she couldn't hear them. Pathetic childish lying on her part

Will the Senatrice be forced to accept paying callers to her fainting couch if she loses?

Like La Collins, I am concerned.

I would love it if Graham got so scared by the polls that he slowed down the Amy Comey Barrett nomination for Supreme Court. It would serve him right ... he will push it through and then cry on election night when he loses.

He thinks he's accepted, but right wingers mock him.

Lindsey Graham signs going up here in South Carolina now have #filltheseat on them. I wanted to pull over and rip them out.

R237 - Ugh. Guess we'll have to make signs that say: #balancethebench

Lindsey Graham signs going up here in Charleston as La Senatrice and I bundle five Graham yard sign stakes together and bang out our holes on either side like a double-edged dildo.

Well. the women in R 243's photo certainly would fill, even overflow, a seat. They could have held a sign that read ," Fill the bench," and their asses would be able to accommodate that, also.

HuffPo: A massive $90M+ haul from McConnell’s super PAC has alarmed Senate Democrats, who are warning they are being outspent in four key states and are trying to fight off small-dollar donor complacency.

Does billionaire Steyer ever lend his money? We know Bloomberg has spent $100 million to help Biden in Florida. Steyer could really help with the Senate if he wanted...

by Anonymousreply 249a day ago

Except for Michigan, which they are feeling they can flip. The others are actually bad news for GOP. They were not supposed to spend anything at all there. All gins are pointing toward at least two of those GOP seats flipping which was not the plan.

Danger! Danger! A Survey USA poll in Minnesota puts Tina Smith only one point ahead of the Republican. It might be an outlier poll because she's generally been running several points ahead, but still - if you're looking for a race to spend money on, you might consider hers.

R252, you convinced me. Just sent Tina Smith some $$$
