This is not a good polling position for incumbent Congresswomen to be in:
- In CD-1, Frank Guinta now beats Carol Shea Porter 45-39 (it was 48-32 the other way in October 2013). Dan Innis is still behind by ten, and that’s about the only good news for the Democrats in this poll.
- In CD-2, Ann Kuster is only beating Gary Lambert 38-34 (a small slip for Lambert from October) and Marilinda Garcia 36-30.
…and you have to wonder how the Democratic Senate and gubernatorial candidates are going to feel about this, too. Aside from a certain sick feeling in their stomachs, of course. That’s pretty much a given. Continue reading Dear me, but this Granite State poll is HORRIBLE for New Hampshire Democrats.
Because God loves me and wishes for me to be happy, that’s why. He knew that I was so busy going after all the other Democrats on my private list that I did not have the chance to give her shellacking – and 42% of the vote for an incumbent qualifies as ‘shellacking;’ so He, in His infinite benevolence, has given me a second bit at that particular apple.
Seriously, this is going to be a blast. I cannot wait to hear how a rabid antiwar candidate justifies President Barack Obama’s neocon-driven war for oil in Libya. I simply cannot wait. I don’t know which will be more fun: the grudging words of praise, spit out like so many ashes; or the bitter eyes as Shea-Porter watches herself slowly strangle her own self-respect* for the sake of a seat in Congress…
*Futilely, of course.
