Hillary s campaign

Hillarys campaign stetrad a year ago ! If it took her 12 months to only beat Obama by 3% she is going to need more time than that to beat Obama ! She had too many of her supporters` bussed in from surrounding states to vote , which is evidently legal in New Hampshire ! There is no other explanation how she overcomes a 12 % deficit in 48 hours ! - Posted on : 18-September-2014

Senate in United States

I would like to see a public iurinqy into how all this got started. Did Chretien & Co. order the RCMP to smear Mulroney. Was there a payoff to the liberals from Boeing for orchestrating the smear? What other uses to the Liberals make of the RCMP, Tax Dept, Justice Dept to advance their own agenda? What current liberal MPs were staffers, student volunteers, relatives, or neighbours of members of the Chretien government? - Posted on : 11-September-2014

Democrats Push to Pass Minimum Wage Hike Ahead of 2014 Elections

President Barack Obama has promised to increase the federal minimum wage during his State of the Union speech in January and now Senate Democrats are taking the draft plan for the vote. The motivation for the Democrats , however, goes well beyond the increase in the standard of living of millions of Americans . They see it as an opportunity to shore up his base before the midterm elections that are expected to go down to the wire. Senate is expected to vote Wednesday on a measure that consistently increase the federal minimum wage of $ 7.25 an hour to $ 10.10 in the coming years and future salary increases linked to inflation . But throughout the show , it is unlikely that the measure can pass a procedural hurdle in the Senate. DOA And even if I could, it is likely that the Republican- controlled House of Representatives. However , the Democrats are going ahead with a vote in the hope that the electoral impact of the minimum wage controversial vote could help them capitalize on the ballot in November. For Democrats , the minimum wage in Washington push is part of a one-year campaign to establish a strong economic contrast between Republicans and Democrats on economic issues. But Democrats successfully with the minimum wage , however, will fall or not voters are paying attention this early in the game . - Posted on : 30-April-2014

Republican Odds of U.S. Senate Takeover Rise as Turnout Shrinks

A decrease in participation is the greatest threat to the Democrats in 2014 midterms when voters were older and white trend, two ridings his party did not win the last election. This group of potentially hostile voters comes amid other signs of trouble for the Democrats. In October, the partisan political analysts had not only a race with incumbent Democratic Senator Mark Pryor of Arkansas, classified as a "toss -up" ; five of these competitions now have this classification. Silver output groups as a committee founded by billionaire brothers Charles and David industrialist Koch, contributed to the most competitive Senate races , plowing money into ads targeted vulnerable Democrats. Add Finally, a factor that political strategists call "the environment" , Obama suffers in public approval delayed , the economy of the nation is undergoing a slow recovery , and polls show voters share roughly the party candidates are likely in November. - Posted on : 15-April-2014

Benefits to Republicans

The same structural factors that benefit Republicans in the House also benefit from Senate President is a Democrat, and is not as popular. There is an added bonus to GOP Senate : probably the best card in at least a generation. Almost all Republican seats are reasonably safe , especially because they are in solidly red states and headlines clearly democratic and open red seats on the ballot in fragile states . A few weeks ago , we wrote that the 10 Senate seats that might switch parties were controlled by Democrats. Pre - date of this analysis , for a few hours , the entry of Scott Brown in the race for the Senate against Senator Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire (D- NH). So now the 11 seats in the Senate will likely return are controlled by Democrats. This may cause our views to the Senate, with a net profit of between four and eight seats for Republicans , it almost seems too low, given what we know about the card ( seven vulnerable Democratic seats in states that Mitt Romney won in 2012 ) . But heres our thinking : Our evaluations show four Senate seats Democrats - held at least lean Republican (Arkansas, Montana, South Dakota and West Virginia) . These races are guaranteed for the Republicans? No, but two, South Dakota and West Virginia, are very good for your research. But it seems reasonable that the conservative GOP will win at least three of the previous four Democratic seats , we favor least with it , then at least one of the three Toss - ups, all democratic headlines (Alaska, Louisiana and North Carolina ) . Forming the lower end of the range of four, which also means that the Republicans will not shoot one or more of the seats they already have, such as Georgia. - Posted on : 11-April-2014

Bid To Topple Thad Cochran Tests Tea Party Muscle

Not looking like a great year for the conservative Tea Party movement as it tries to reorganize the Republican Party by challenging the "establishment " Republicans in the U.S. Senate . The assault on the Tea Party Senator John Cornyn down in Texas primary last month, and recent surveys indicate that candidates are not the likely movement of chasing headlines in Kentucky, Tennessee and Kansas. But the prospects of the Tea Party is much better in Mississippi. The stars seem to have aligned for Chris McDaniel, a state senator who heads a primary battle against Thad Cochran , seeking his seventh term of six years in the Senate . Polls show a tight race two months before the Republican primary on June 3 , and an army of Tea Party activists are canvassing voters in Mississippi for McDaniel . The money flooded in, with the Tea Party affiliated groups such as the National Club spending growth by nearly 1 million dollars for support. For the Tea Party, the issues of race McDaniel are huge. If we can reverse a popular holder and Cochran , you can claim to relevance in the Republican Party , despite the decline elsewhere indicate the movement that erupted in American politics in 2010 is losing some momentum amid a set of more moderate Republican establishment. From Cochran , 76 , was elected to the Senate in 1978 , rarely has faced a challenge and did not need the kind of comprehensive fundraising effort , which is typical of campaigns for the Senate today. With the help of national groups , McDaniel, 41, has reduced the funding gap between him and the owner in a way that few rivals have Tea Party. He raised about $ 500,000 in the fourth quarter ; Cochran has $ 740,000 for the year . Mississippi seems almost ideal for this challenge McDaniel condition. It is a small state with only about 3 million people, a landscape management for a managed campaign. It is also a hotbed of Tea Party activism : According to Gallup polling , only Wyoming is more conservative . - Posted on : 11-April-2014
