Obama Dimocrats will blame Martha Coakley, er, the guy with the Inspector Clouseau mustache for the historic loss in New York following the historic losses in 2010 and 2009. But if they think the election results are bad in true blue New York City – take a look at what happened in Nevada and what it means for 2012.
“Few expect Marshall to prevail in Nevada, but a weak showing in Washoe County, the district’s most populous, could be a devastating precursor for Democrats. Obama is counting on Nevada as part of his path to reelection, and Washoe County, which includes Reno, is key to that strategy. Though Obama lost the 2nd District in 2008 and Sen. Harry Reid lost it in 2010, they both won Washoe County.
A Marshall loss there could be evidence that Obama is doomed in Nevada next year.“
So, what happened in Washoe county last night – is Obama doomed in must win Nevada next year”? Republican Amodei won Washoe county 52% to Marshall’s 42%.
Republicans spent their money on tying Marshall to Barack Obama. Here’s Politico before the election results:
“Marshall’s margin of defeat will go a long way in revealing just how much of a drag Obama will be on Democrats in conservative districts, especially since she’s worked to distance herself from the national party.
If Marshall comes closer than expected, without her party’s help and in an unfavorable climate, vulnerable Democrats in GOP-leaning districts will have reason for hope.”
So, how close did Marshall come to defeating Amodei? Is Hope still alive for the Hopium addicted? Republican Amodei defeated Marshall decisively by a Hope-less margin of 58% to 36%.
Before the election results came in, Politico discussed the bluest portion of Nevada and the implications for Obama in 2012:
“While the 2nd District is largely rural, it includes a sliver of blue Clark County that makes up about 7 percent of the district, including parts of Henderson and North Las Vegas. Democrats outnumber Republicans by about 5 points in this part of the district, an area where Democrats need high turnout from their base to prevail in next year’s presidential race, Senate race and a competitive Las Vegas-area House race.
If Marshall loses — or even underperforms — in Clark County, it could be a bad omen for Democrats like Obama, Senate candidate Shelley Berkley and numerous hopefuls eyeing runs in Las Vegas-area seats.
It could prove especially troubling because neither campaign has advertised in the more expensive Las Vegas media market that covers Clark County, so an Amodei win there either means that Republicans are disproportionately motivated to turn out or that Democrats are crossing party lines to vote for him — either is bad news for Democrats.“
So, with all the dire implications as outlined by Politico, what happened in Clark county last night? Republican Amodei won must win Clark county in must win Nevada last night 60% to 37%.
Dump Obama Or Die. Barack Obama is poison. Barack Obama is an albatross:
“But make no mistake about it, the albatross around Weprin’s neck is named Obama, and Democrats who value honesty will tell you privately that the president’s 37 percent approval rating in the district is making it difficult for Weprin to win a race that in almost any other time would be a slam dunk, no matter how mediocre a campaign the Democratic nominee ran.”
It’s not just Nevada and it’s not just New York. Obama’s reelect numbers in a new Bloomberg poll are 29%:
“On job creation, he gets a 36/57; on the overall economy, 33/62; and on the budget deficit, 30/62. Among independents, his approval on the economy falls to 29/66 and to 25/67 on budget deficits.
Oh, and on that friendly issue? Obama scores a 39/53 on health care, too — a big problem as Obama and Democrats have to defend ObamaCare in 2012.
But those numbers are just the appetizers. Bloomberg asks respondents whether they will definitely vote for Obama in 2012, and only 29% of them say yes. Another 21% say they will consider a different candidate, while 43% say they will definitely not vote for Obama. Among Democrats, only 67% don’t want a primary challenge in 2012 against the sitting President, while 30% “would like another candidate to try” for the nomination. Bear in mind that the poll sample comprises a D/R/I split of 39/31/27, which means that Obama is losing more than a quarter of his own voters, assuming all 29% are Democrats.”
It’s not just Nevada and New York. In California the sun don’t shine on boob:
“If there was any question about the breadth and magnitude of the plunge in President Obama’s job-approval rating this summer, consider this new data point: For the first time, fewer than half of voters in deep-blue California approve of the job Obama is doing, according to a new Field Poll released early Wednesday. [snip]
Obama has lost ground among all groups. His approval rating is 10 points lower among Democrats, 2 points lower among Republicans, and a whopping 13 points lower among independents, down to 45 percent among that key group.
Obama has lost 10 percent of men and 6 percent of women. His approval rating is nine points lower among white voters and three points down among Hispanics. It dropped 6 points among voters aged 18-29, 10 points among voters in their 30s, 7 points among voters in their 40s, 8 points among voters aged 50-64, and 10 points among voters over 65.
California voters are increasingly pessimistic about the direction of the country. Just 21 percent of voters — and 16 percent of independents — think the country is on the right track.”
The California reelect numbers for the Boob are below 50% in California but still at a relatively strong 49%. But wait a few more months. Wait till Solyndra and other corruptions take their toll on the Obama favorability ratings. Wait until more White House emails emerge about the $500 million rip-off of taxpayer dollars.
“CNN Poll: President gets no bounce from speech, but disapproval rating peaks
President Barack Obama didn’t score any political points with his speech on jobs to a joint session of Congress last Thursday. According to a new CNN/ORC International poll released Tuesday, the president’s approval rating stands at 43 percent, virtually unchanged from the 45 percent approval rating in the previous CNN poll. [snip]
Less than one in ten think Obama’s policies have made the economy better, although another four in ten credit them with preventing the economy from being even worse than it is today. Thirty-seven percent say that Obama has made economic conditions worse and 15 percent think his policies have had no effect.”
“President Obama’s major jobs speech last week has not moved the needle on his approval ratings, according to the Gallup tracking poll.
The three-day tracking average stood at 43 percent approval on Sept. 8, and remains stuck there as of Monday. Disapproval, meanwhile, has ticked up 1 percentage point from 49 percent to 50 percent.”
Speaking of Das Racist, let’s peer once again into the Kook Klutz Klan.
Before we begin our short, ugly, trip, recall that in the kingdom of the blind the one-eyed man is king. In the Kingdom of the Kooks however, Krazy is King. These Kooks are now the Obama Dimocratic Party having killed the once great party of FDR and Hillary Clinton.
“I can almost start to understand anti-semetism and all the horrible things done to Jews over the years when I see the Hassidim (they should be banned from voting).”
The Obama enabling Kooks took their inner antisemitism out for a walk last night. Possibly they could not bear to constrain their Jew hate once they saw the DrudgeReport gloating headline “Revenge of the Jews”.
The Kingdom of the Kooks raged that the voters of Queens and Brooklyn acted like Mohels and forced a Lorena Bobbit style circumcision on Barack Obama. He has no cojones – so now it’s matched luggage.
The lesson for Democrats and Obama Dimocrats from the New York Islands to the Redwood Forests: “DUMP OBAMA OR DIE.”
