Don’t Get Cocky, Kid

The Denver Post reports that Republican voters seem to be getting their ballots in faster that Democrats. Colorado has gone to 100 % mail-in ballots.

As of Wednesday, the most recent day the Colorado secretary of state’s office released ballot return data, 145,824 Republican voters had mailed back their ballots while 105,401 Democrats had done the same. More than 77,000 unaffiliated voters had also returned their completed ballots.

If that trend continues, the Republican vote may exceed the margin of theft.

False Narratives

Roger Kimball has a piece up at PJ Media analyzing the spin in a New York Times story about the Democrats’ panic over the coming midterm elections and why their candidates are trying to distance themselves from an unpopular president.

I guess the New York Times needs something more, because according to them, Obama is unpopular not because he has failed but because the Republicans have somehow enveloped him in a “narrative of failure.” Yes, that’s right, folks, the evil Republicans called Obama’s failures, er, failures, and by so doing they managed to substitute a fiction (that’s what the Times means by “narrative”) for the truth.

Read the whole thing.

You know, there’s something about having truthful reporting described as a “false narrative” that seems awfully familiar


American Thinker reports that Obama voters seem to be in the first stage of grief—denial. According to polls conducted by USA Today, fewer voters in five of six states with toss up senate races say they voted for the President that actually did.

In 2012, Obama carried three of the states surveyed by USA TODAY and Suffolk University’s Political Research Center with more than 50% of the vote. But now just 47% of likely voters in Iowa, 46% in Colorado and 48% in Michigan say they voted for him.

Of the six states, only in Kansas did the percentage who remember voting for Obama match the actual election returns, at 38%. His standing slid 5 points in North Carolina and 2 in Arkansas.
