Great news!! And thanks for posting.

The lefties are running scared and more rabid than usual....and delusional. The fact that Romney is even ahead of Obama in some polls so early on when things have not "officially" started yet, just proves that her is an excellent candidate to beat obummer.

Any idiot whom would vote for Obama after living in the mess he has created for several years should hang their head in shame. Period.

Interesting take.

I think more people are looking for competence, some degree of understanding how capitalism works, some comprehension of business, and an appreciation for the role of private enterprise in American history.

Those seeking "inspiration" are likely to stick with old Hope and Change, or Hype and Blame, or Forward (Over the Cliff) or whatever the latest Obama campaign fluff is.

In Congress 12-7 seats are republican.

The Senate is split.
And yet you ignore my post, which also has hard exit-poll data.

I'll given you $100 if PA goes red. It won't.

Yes a mid-term, a Gubernatorial race never has the same turnout as a Presidential race.

As far as the State House and Senate, the GOP or the most part has held both for most of recent history. They have had the Senate for quite awhile, and had the House for quite a bit as well, lost it in the bad GOP year of 2006, got it back in the bad Dem year of 2010.

The GOP had both houses after the 2000 census as well as a GOP gov, and did some gerrymandering in the Leg and Congress.

However, despite being GOP on the state leg level, Congress level, Gov level and hell even both Senate seats, it still did not give the GOP the state on the Presidential level during those years.

Its similar to what the Dems have had in some southern states. Locally the state can be Republican (helped by Gerrymandering), but on the Pres level its still Dem leaning, North Carolina (though I would say about 8-10 years ago as opposed to now) is a good example the other way. Dem leaning statewide and locally, but GOP on the Pres level.

Suburban Philly (Montco especially) would be a prime example. It use to be very Republican, both on the local and Pres level. On the local level it has certainly become more Democratic, but the GOP can has won locally. On the Presidential level?? Not a chance in hell.
