    How Republicans Will Win the Senate
    Tuesday, 09 Feb 2010 10:21 AM
    By: Dick Morris & Eileen McGann

    If the Republican Party wins every Senate seat in which it now holds a lead, according to Rasmussen’s polls, it will capture eight Democratic seats while holding all of its own.

    The two remaining pickups, to assure control, could be in Indiana, where former Sen. Dan Coats may run against Sen. Evan Bayh, and in California. Even if Coats does not run, former Congressman John Hostettler is behind Bayh by only 44-41 percent. And, in California, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is only 3 points behind Sen. Barbara Boxer.

    (This assumes that former Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson takes on Sen. Russ Feingold).

    In these eight races, the Republican is ahead:

    State Contest Latest Polling Date
    Delaware Castle vs. Coons Castle +29 Jan.
    North Dakota Hoeven vs. unknown Hoeven +20 (vs. Dorgan) Dec.
    Arkansas Lincoln. vs. 4 opps Republican (Baker) +19 Feb.
    Nevada Reid vs. 4 opps. Republican (Tarkanian) +8 Feb.
    Colorado Norton vs. Bennet Norton +14 Feb.
    Pennsylvania Toomey vs. Specter Toomey +9 Jan.
    Illinois Kirk vs. Giannoulias Kirk +6 Feb.
    Wisconsin Thompson vs. Feingold Thompson +3 Jan.

    And, in these two states, the results are close:

    State Contest Latest Polling Date
    California Boxer vs. 3 opps. Boxer (vs. Fiorina) +3 Jan.
    Indiana Bayh vs. Hostettler Bayh + 3 Jan

    If Republicans take all 10 seats, they take control in the Senate.

    In addition, strong challenges may be shaping up in New York against Kirsten Gillibrand and in Washington State against Patty Murray.

    Gillibrand, appointed to fill Hillary Clinton's seat, is very vulnerable, both in a primary against former Tennessee Democratic Congressman Harold Ford and in a general election. If a strong candidate emerges, she and/or Ford could be defeated.

    And in Washington state, innovative businessman (and millionaire) Paul Akers is likely to run against Patty Murray. The Washington state senator won with only 55 percent of the vote last time, a poor performance for a three-term incumbent. Akers' company takes new technologies, buys them, and then uses them to create jobs. He should give Murray a tough race which he could end up winning.

    But the message of Massachusetts is that any Republican can beat any Democrat anywhere. So don't count out former Congressman Rob Simmons' race against Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal or any possible candidate against Oregon's Ron Wyden and New York's Chuck Schumer.

    The Republicans will win the Senate (and the House) — and might win it with a few seats to spare!

    Hopefully yes, but things can be deceiving. MN held Party Caucuses on the 2nd. Usually non presidential years are lite on attendance. I thought people were riled up enough that we would get a better than average turnout. It was worse than four years ago when we had a snow storm caucus night. I printed up 250 gubernatorial straw ballots for the 10 precincts I run, and got 61 ballots back.

    I don't think it makes a hill of beans difference - one party is going down the road at 90MPH the other at 60 MPH -- but it is the same road.

    Agree -

    I saw a dude on Fox last night - did not catch his name - and he gave a great example of this.

    He said fixing blame for the current problems was a lot like having a man and a woman, each married to someone else, meeting in a hotel room to do unnatural things, and trying to establish which one of them was most wrong.

    And this is how it will be until the voters SHED their allegiance to PARTY and start voting the INDIVIDUAL!

    The question is with which will we be better off? The libs have blamed Bush for everything that went wrong however they have been in control of both houses for 4 years now. They reminds me of the Reagan question "Are you better off now than you were 4 years ago?"

    I hope to God a bunch of republicans lose their seats as well, and there's a huge influx of independent, non-politician people.

    The turncoat repubs are just as bad as the liberal dems, and in some ways worse, as they seek to change their spots, so as to appear conservative and keep their job.

    Throw 'em all out. :mad:

    Exactly, MC Cain has a serious challenger and all of a sudden he sounds like the second coming of Ronald Reagan. He has been there long enough and it's time to step aside along with a long list of other RINO's.

    I have seen poles that indicate that all of the House and Senate are a bunch of bums EXCEPT my guy. We need to realize that they all are truly bums and get rid of them all -- INCLUDING "my guy".

    Evan Bayh, Democratic Senator from IN announced this morning that he won't seek re-election even though he is up 20 points in his internal polling. Either his polling is off and he knows it or someone found the pictures.

    Five Dems. have pulled the plug on their Congressional careers.

    Now to see where they end up in their new careers that were promised them if they got caught selling out the country. That should prove interesting. Wonder how many end up being employed by the Global Warming scammers or in the health care and health insurance industry.

    Five Dems. have pulled the plug and a mess of RINOs need to follow their example.

    They need to try out the safety net they have been weaving for years in the Global warming Industry and Health and Insurance Industries. Then again many have been helpful to the Public Employee and Service Unions so they might be able to get some top paying jobs there too. After all they have supported these businesses against the will of their constituents and faced up to the angry voters at the town hall meetings.

    It's pay up time. Let's see where these people end up.
