Post-convention bump extends to Democrats in general

A fresh poll of likely voters from CNN/ORC confirms what the tracking polls have been telling us, reporting a 52-46 point advantage for Barack Obama, up from a 48-48 percent tie a week earlier.

However, the poll also suggests that Obama isn’t the sole beneficiary of that bump, a fact that could have significant implications down ballot:

DEMS.

And here are the comparable numbers for the Republicans:

REPS.

The demographic breakouts are also telling. Among likely voters 50 and younger, an impressive 60 percent have a favorable view of Democrats. Only 35 percent of those 50 and younger have a favorable view of Republicans. Just 15 percent of non-white voters view Republicans favorably, while 85 percent view Democrats that way.

In addition, the South is the only region in the country in which Republicans (51 percent favorable) are viewed more favorably than Democrats (45 percent). So if you’re 50 or older, white and live in Georgia, it’s tempting to look at the numbers above and dismiss them because they contradict everything that you see and hear in your daily life.

That doesn’t mean they aren’t real.

I suspect the polls will be pretty close going into the debates with Romney needing decisive wins to pull off a victory in November.

Republicans just are not doing a good enough job of getting their message out. I suggest they start by visiting OWS gatherings and telling those people how they need to take baths and get jobs and such. Afterward, they should visit Planned Parenthood locations and show women firsthand how beneficial those vaginal ultrasounds will be for them… so much for the Republicans to do and so little time. You guys need to get busy.

Saturday, December 9, 2000: I had to go into the office to work some overtime toward a deadline. Had one of the kids in the car with me. The news had just broken that the Supremes said, “STOP counting the votes already! We choose the Bush Boy.” I’m trying to merge on the highway, when I hear some intense honking. Somebody is laying on the horn repeatedly and hard. Like, beyond annoying. Just to be sure, I’m looking around. Is it MY bad? Uh, no…. nope. Can’t be anything I did. On the highway a moment later, the repetitive noise came at me. A bleach blonde bizzzzzatdch in a freaking $60K JAGUAR was beeping and blowing and trying to get up next to me. She did, and was waving and doing her “nyah nyah” thumbs up, then down, thing (letting go of the wheel even), and pointing at my bumper and the Gore sticker there. Bizzzzzzatdch almost ran me off the road. In her $60K car. While I was going to work with a kid in my modest little mom-mobile. Because she just HAD to let me know she was better than me.

I hope she wrapped her status symbol and her bleached head around a tree. People are getting fed up with her kind. The people of Georgia will come around too.

Clearly the Republicans need to also get the word out to the voters regarding the progress they have made following their 2010 jobs campaign.

Thank you for that! I am also weary of people whining they don’t like what’s on the menu. But there are more choices. For example, many of us work in our local communities to recruit and support good local candidates. We go to our local party meetings and work to get like-minded folks out to meet each other, discuss the issues, and plan events. We look for people who are not only businessmen, but who volunteer with civic and charitable organizations. We coax hats into the ring, and sometimes we throw our own hats into the ring. We go to town hall meetings our reps host, so we understand what they’re doing while they think no one is looking. We show up at city councils, school, boards, zoning commissions, and Soldier’s Day parades. We stay informed and share information. We know that if we can’t even fix anything in our own back yards, all our yammering about “fixing the country” doesn’t mean much. We donate time, money, effort, and embarrass ourselves to our neighbors to support good local and state-level candidates.

Instead of whining about what’s on the menu, we plant, grow, harvest, and deliver locally-grown goodness for the rest of you to enjoy. Or at least, we give it a good shot… year after year, odd years and even… for no pay, no recognition, and rarely any success…. so WHINERS will have a better choice.

USMC: Adam, you will learn more and become more diverse if you will start reading multiple sources(right, left and in the middle) for your information. If you continue with only Huffpo and Jay Bookman’s blog, you will remain ignorant and ill-informed.

Looking at other sources of information is fine, when the information is credible. Some sites, such as breitbart.com, Daily Caller, and some others have EARNED me not paying attention to them. I read FoxNews.com still, for instance.

The polls are going to tighten up again because the economy has to come into play. 47 million people on government assistance isn’t good. You can’t equate that to meaningful jobs.

This is a perfect demonstration of a national case of Stockholm syndrome.

Our wonderful, exceptional country is suffering from that psychological phenomenon in which hostages express empathy and have positive feelings towards their captor, in this case government dependency, many times to the point of defending it, as we sadly see here on Jay’s blog daily.

But obvious to even the lowest life form, these feelings are considered irrational in light of the danger or risk endured by the victims, who as citizens, mistake the direct lack of abuse, or the perceived beneficence of their captor for an act of kindness, regardless of the future destruction of their way of life.

It’s pitiful. Four people gave up looking for work last month for every person who found employment. Millions are suffering from O’bozo’s policies, yet because he’s “cool” he hasn’t suffered any consequences. And the MSM continues to carry his water, claiming as slick Willie did last week that NO ONE, even the Messiah who promised to heal the planet, could fix the economy.

Now we have to find out what kind of executive the Mittster is. Can he turn this around?

Stay tuned.

Towncrier: Well, then, I will stand ready to call you on every objection you make to instances of over-the-top conservative intolerance (like calling people nazis or terrorists or racists because you dislike their views).

When have I ever called someone a nazi or a terrorist? And when have I called someone racist without a very obvious racist statement to back it up? Seriously, I’m asking.

And please, go on pretending you were going easy on me before.

I can agree with that.

But nothing useful can be learned from breibart.

“I have been trying to tell him, but he is probably one of the most closed minded posters on this blog in my opinion. The right can simply never be right.”

Well he fits right in because Liberals are not very diverse people.
They are very Narrow-minded and if they don’t like what you are saying they will do their best to shut you up. They are scared of diversity because they can’t control it, and they are extreme ideologues in philosophy (or lack thereof) :-)

Heck, I still even refer to Heritage for a chart they used actual verifiable data for.

They BOTH suck

When I say “narrative” about the polling, I was speaking more to the way things are worded. More options do not fit the pollsters narrative they wish to give so they leave them out. Saying I didn’t know the Romany lady fit my “narrative” for that post, so that is what I said even though I knew what you were saying. Maybe I’m not being as clear as I need or needed to be.

Again, very early to call the game, but betting is open at the casinos and while the house can lose big, they do not build those places because they lose the majority of time…….. but they do lose.

“I am so tired of hearing Americans complain that this party or that party didn’t do enough to “earn my vote”. What a cop-out.”

Profound disillusionment is not a cop-out but an understandable human sentiment. I don’t vote “for” something so much as I vote “against” something. I really wish I could do the latter. I suppose if Christie had been nominated and we had not discovered anything really alarming about him, I would be voting “for” him.
