    Dodd just announced today that he would not seek re-election and there is already a poll out about his seat? And since your link didn't work....My bet is this is for the second Senatorial seat, not Dodds. Regardless the election is 11 months away and the left is lossing ground fast. Which is why Dodd isn't running again. He doesn't want to have to explain all the bribs to get his Bull Shit health care Bill passed.

    The truth is the exact opposite of what you claim:
    CNN Political Ticker: All politics, all the time Blog Archive - Poll suggests Sen. Dodd could face tough re-election next year « - Blogs from CNN.com

    Nice try kid but this isn't HS.

    Regardless, Connecticut is still a blue state.
    They had issues with Dodd unrelated to the current Obama administration. Dodd dropping out probably enhances the chances of another Dem being elected

    Again... a real shock that a DEM would be leading n some poll in the North East :rolleyes:

    Now how accurate a quick poll like this is would be in question.. but I do not doubt the results in a state like that...

    But as for your other assertion, most were happy to have Dodd out... and probably excited that there has been a sort of a swing.... as evidenced by approval ratings, voter dissatisfaction, etc

    YOur right there RW.

    Dodd was a big player in the Freddie and Fannie fiasco as well as the sweetheart deal he got on one of his houses. He had problems that I'm sure would have hit the campaign trail with him.
