Michigan Democrat Bart Stupak has decided to retire after 9 terms in congress. In a statement he denied that his choice to not seek re-election had anything to do with his Health care vote. Stupak is considered to be one of the conservative congressman in the Democrat party. Many of his constituents expected that he would hold firm on his health care vote because language suggested that some government funding of Abortions could take place. Stupak made a deal that required the President to sign an Executive order that would limit government funds.
A lot has happened since our last Senate update in January. And yet overall, the balance hasn’t changed dramatically. Republicans are still likely to gain seats in a cycle that started off in 2009 looking good for Democrats. But how many new GOP senators will there be? It’s time for a dose of reality in the midst of April showers for some incumbents. The chart below gives you what you […]
Critics of the tea parties have tried to paint their membership as monochrome and their opposition to President Obama’s policies as rooted in racism. That story line doesn’t really hold up for anyone who has actually attended a tea party, and Gallup reported this week that, in terms of “age, educational background, employment status, and race — Tea Partiers are quite representative of the public at large.” But a better […]
How many times does one have to ask a question to Robert Gibbs to get an answer to a simple question, “did the Administration offer Congressman Sestak a job if he dropped his Senate Bid”.

After declining for four straight months to the lowest levels on record, the number of Democrats increased a point from a month ago. […]
The thing I found most surprising in our Florida poll had nothing to do with Charlie Crist- it was Barack Obama’s positive 54/42 approval spread with independents. Out of the 20 different states we’ve polled in the last six months that makes it just the fourth where he’s been on positive ground with independents, joining South Dakota, Delaware, and Arizona. And it’s the first one of those states where he’s […]
Former Presidential candidate warns Teaparty activists not to form a third party and run candidates against the GOP. He points out that whenever a conservative has ran against the GOP most have lost in both parties. A senatorial candidate, Scott Ashjian, running against Nevada Senator Harry Reid is calling himself a Teaparty candidate. Former and likely future GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney issued a warning to tea party activists in an interview […]
For the second month in a row, incumbent Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer is in surprisingly tight races with three potential Republican challengers in California. Most troubling for Boxer in the latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in the state is her continuing inability to cross the 50% threshold against any of the GOP hopefuls. Incumbents who capture less than 50% of the vote at this stage of the […]
