New Poll Suggest Ohio Senate Race May Be Over

AMERICAblog.com reports that the GOP is taking steps that suggest it is not going to focus on Ohio Sen. Mike Dewine's bid for re-election.

"The GOP is pulling out of Ohio. The DSCC has tracked the numbers. The RNC is scaling back big time," the blog reports.

Other reports have suggested the GOP is moving money from Ohio and the flatlined campaign of Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) to help Sen. George Allen (R-VA), who holds a narrow lead over Democrat Jim Webb, according to recent polls.

The change in Republican spending habits comes on the heels of a new Quinnipiac poll that has Rep. Sherrod Brown, the Democrat, with a 12-point lead over DeWine.

Brown was favored by 53 percent of voters surveyed in The Quinnipiac University Poll conducted Oct. 10-15, compared to 41 percent who favored DeWine. The same poll found a statistical tie in the race in September.

That's all good news.
And the recent polls showing Menendez slipping into a somewhat comfortable lead over Kean Jr. in New Jersey means that Sen. Macaca now offers about the only hope for the Republicans in the most hotly contested races.
And the Dems could be handed the keys to the House as well. Check this out:
51% of voters living in the nation's most competitive House districts plan to vote in this year's midterm elections for Democratic candidates while only 40% said they intend to support a Republican candidate (according to a new poll from Public Opinion Strategies and Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research).

The poll presents other figures to show the people are responding to the dreaded Iraq war and the way the Republicans have handled the Foley matter.

Most Conservatives know how corupt NJ is and really dont care if Kean Jr wins because he is really a democrat. I guess the politicians in NJ will finally wake up when everone in the state moves out.

I'm not conceding anything, just to be cautious. But an avg. of the last five polls has Brown over Dewine, 50.6 to 40.2.

Great news! We're just a few seats away from having the to pay the Marriage tax again and treating the War on Terror like an after thought. Go Democrats!

And the self proclaimed war president, who "sits in the Oval Office with war on his mind" and his sheep-like, rubber-stamp party have handled the war on terror effectively.
With a U.S. quagmire in Iraq accelerating global terrorism and N. Korea with a Nuclear bomb?
Come again?

You still pay the Marriage Tax, dope. And the Boy King will be in charge for two more years, so don't worry, he'll continue to screw up everything to your liking. Go in peace.

Hey Dopey, your friend Chimpy won't be able to screw everything up because he will finally have a rational party to stop him, rather than enable him.

I wouldn't mind paying a few hundred extra bucks in "marriage taxes" per year for better education and healthcare. I would prefer such a tax over diminished income and a depressed economy.
I would take the tax over not having to pay the wealthiest 2% of Americans' share of the taxes, creating not a "trickle down" economy rather an elimination of the middle class. I would rather not have an endless war mounting a massive debt burden upon the backs of our children. Etc.
