Politico has obtained and published a confidential messaging-strategy presentation that essentially admits ObamaCare supporters are losing the battle for public opinion. The presentation was delivered to professional leftists by the left-wing Herndon Alliance, based on public opinion research by Democratic pollsters John Anzalone, Celinda Lake, and Stan Greenberg, in a forum organized by the left-wing group Families USA, “one of the central groups in the push for the initial legislation.” It is a stark admission that the public has not warmed to the new health care law, despite predictions that they would do so.
Gee, what a surprise. The people found out what’s in it – and they hate it.
Charlie Cook is going to be ‘way low in his prediction.
“I think Republicans are going to get the House back,” he said flatly in a conversation taped for WSJ.com’s “Big Interview” segment, which will be posted on the site Friday morning.
To be precise, Republicans need to win 39 Democratic seats to get control of the House, and Mr. Cook’s current estimate is that they are in line for a 35- to 45-seat gain. “But frankly, I think we’re being very conservative with that,” he added. “The odds of it being higher than that range are a lot better than lower.”
Actually, I suspect that he’s hedging a bit here because even he can’t quite believe how big this wave will be. What I am seeing and hearing from people right now appears to indicate that this will be a lot worse for Democrats than any conventional wisdom would predict. You have to read between the lines of most press reports these days, since the press is still largely in the tank for Obama and the left. But the signs are ugly. And the words I am hearing from regular folks who are not normally political portend a very, very bleak election day for anyone with a (D) after their name.
The negative coattails at the national/state level will even make it hard for local candidates.
Personally, I’ll be quite happy to see a lot of (D)unemployed after this November. They deserve to be, unlike the millions suffering from their policies, spendthrift habits and economic idiocy.
Renounce the Democrat Obama-enablers and repeal ObamaCare.
