    Landrieu Closes Gap - Cassidy Only Leads by 24 percent!

    Hmmm...could be a tight race.

    Cassidy led Landrieu 57 percent to 33 percent in the survey conducted Nov. 24-25 by WPA Opinion Research for Independent Women’s Voice. His victory would bring the number of Republican Senate seats captured in this year’s midterm elections to nine, topping off the new GOP majority at 54 seats. The poll of 500 likely voters had an error margin of 4.4 percentage points.

    “Cassidy has the lead among all gender age groups and enjoys a [sizable] lead among independent voters,” WPA Opinion Research said in a memo.

    “Moreover, based on current projections, even if African-Americans support Landrieu at 95% and turnout in record numbers, she will still lose on Election Day.”

    "according to a GOP poll"
    Done by a right-wing astroturfing organization funded by the Koch Bros.
    Published in a right-wing paper.

    I'm surprised it is such a tight race.

    Oh my God, you are correct. According to an average of polls taken as late as Nov. 20th, she is ONLY behind an average of 17.6 points (excluding this last one). Why, that's practically a moral victory!

    I'm shocked, SHOCKED, I tell you!

    Who would have thought that selling out your party and turning your back on your base would get you voted out of office?

    Well, where are all the dead people and illegal immigrants who are supposed to give the Dems the edge?

    Come on, guys. Pull your fucking weight. Electoral systems don't just up and corrupt themselves. It takes hard work and effort to subvert democracy and you can't just be phoning it in like this.
