'It's looking very grim': Senate GOP braces for Democratic majority
by David M. Drucker, Senior Political Correspondent |
 | October 14, 2020 06:30 AM

The prognosis for the Republican Senate majority is dire, as well-funded Democratic challengers put red states in play and GOP incumbents feel dragged down by President Trump's faltering reelection bid.

Senate Republicans are clinging to a three-seat majority. They are poised to pick up one Democratic-held seat in Alabama and threatening to flip another in Michigan. But it all starts to come apart from there. Incumbent Republicans are endangered in Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, Maine, and North Carolina; on their heels in Georgia and Montana; and facing the prospect of major upsets in Alaska and South Carolina. Republicans could also lose an open-seat contest in ruby-red Kansas.

In Alaska, Kansas, Montana, and South Carolina, where Trump is heavily favored over Democratic nominee Joe Biden, the Republicans’ problem is resources. Energized grassroots liberals have flooded Democratic challengers in those states with hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions. Republican candidates are completely outgunned. In Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, Maine, North Carolina, and Georgia, all presidential battlegrounds, the problem is money — and Trump.

The president’s standing versus Biden has suffered since the first televised debate and his bout with the coronavirus. The fallout is impacting Senate Republicans.

Trump's faltering election bid?   In what alternate universe of unreality?   I think that even people who have never voted will get up and get out and vote this November against the Antifa/BLM/Democrat radical left.

More media bullsh*t. The funding discrepancy is worrisome though - the billionaires are really stepping up for Biden.

Ironic, isn't it.   Considering the (fake) squawking against billionaires that the Democrats have constantly displayed.   Yet they probably all secretly luv Soros.

Isn't there was a 5k limit on individual donations? If these billionaire despot wanna be's are funding the rat campaigns in other ways, and it seems they are, I wonder how they can be legal since they circumvent the spirit if not the letter of existing campaign financing laws?

Since when have the rats ever cared about what was legal... especially when it concerns $$$ coming into their coffers.   As for enforcing those laws, some laws are more equal than others, it appears... since the will (even on the right) to enforce said laws seems to be MIA.

This is bullshit.  Schumer is backtracking on flipping the Senate.

Just vote red, folks.  Just vote red.  happy77

Based on the (national) polling averages. Maybe not so for other measures, but on that measure Trump isn't doing good. The RCP polling average is historically very accurate, even in 2016.

Lol..... the polls are wrong, then.   This is a deliberate attempt to portray Trump as an illegitimate winner on election day so the left can justify their already planned riots and insurrection.

Ah................someone who grasps that reality always trumps fantasy.
The EC Vote  today, w/no undecideds and 19 days left, from Rasmussen:
Biden 375 (70%) and Trump 163 (30%).
Whisper, not to enrage the devotees, but that translates into: L.A.N.D.S.L.I.D.E!!!!!
