An Alaska federal judge ruled Friday that Republican Senate candidate Joe Miller’s challenge to the counting of write-in ballots raises “serious” legal issues but is a matter for a state, not federal, court to decide. Yet in deferring to an Alaska state court for a final decision, U.S. District Judge Ralph Beistline said he would grant a temporary injunction to halt official certification of the Nov. 2 election — an […]

How the Left Interpreted the Midterms

November 18, 2010 politisite 0

For 34-year-old Adam Green, the midterm elections were not a repudiation of liberalism but a rejection of Barack Obama’s accommodating style. “The only way to get the Republicans to the table,” he says, “is to punch them in the face real hard on one issue.” So when he read this month about White House aides conceding that they would likely support a tax-cut extension for the richest 2% of Americans […]

October 27, 2010 politisite 0

It’s an especially challenging year for dozens of Democratic incumbents. Here’s a quick rundown of the party’s most vulnerable members. AL-2: REP. BOBBY BRIGHT: The freshman has voted against key Democratic bills and even said he won’t vote for Nancy Pelosi as speaker, but in this GOP-leaning district, it still might not be enough to save him.

Ten days to Mid-Term Elections, where does your State Senate race Stand?

October 23, 2010 politisite 0

It’s always been unlikely that Republicans will pick up the 10 seats needed to take control of the Senate, but a gain of seven or eight seats would be enough for the GOP to effectively block any Democratic proposal and perhaps even move some pieces of legislation.

October 18, 2010 politisite 0

With only 15 days to go until the election, we’re going to be upping the frequency of our forecast updates somewhat. Today, we’ve re-run the numbers for the Senate, and they show little change in the overall likelihood of a Republican takeover. The model gives Republicans a 17 percent chance of winding up with at least 51 Senators after Nov. 2. That’s essentially unchanged from our previous update, from last […]

While things could change in the next 35 days, they haven’t yet, and every day, the magnitude of events necessary to change the course of this election has to be greater than the day before. It seems extremely likely that the GOP will regain control […]
