    After an initial post-primary bounce, Joe Sestak, now linked strongly to the Obama White House, has poll numbers dropping off rapidly. And make no mistake, his numbers are not only reflective of voter distrust of Sestak - but Obama as well, a clear indicator of passive-aggressive White Guilt sentiment...
    ____

    Sestak has another problem: independent voters. Toomey gets 50% of them, compared to an anemic 16% for Sestak, with 24% undecided (10% want another candidate). Among unaffiliated voters, Sestak has a -29 favorability rating (25/54), so he’s unlikely to do much better as the undecideds split when the election draws near. He has room to pick up Democrats, but that’s also a measure of his weakness. He currently only get 65% of his own party (Toomey gets 77% of Republicans), which could be a harbinger of a light Democratic turnout in the general election thanks to a lack of enthusiasm for their candidate.

    It most certainly did not help him when he changed his story from "a high ranking administration member offering a high ranking WH position" to " a non administration member offering a low "advisory board" positon"

    Only an idiot or a partisan sheep would not have seen right through that one.

    Note to Democrat candidates - IF you are running for reelection in a state or district that is anything less than flaming liberal (san fran, NYC, etc..) , don't get any of the Obama STINK on you ........ He's is on a roll - everyone he supports loses.

    And that is indeed what is happening - the distancing from Obama is significant.

    And rightfully so - Obama is becoming toxic.

    Every candidate Obama has supported with personal appearances in a tight race has lost. He is the kiss of death. His vaunted personal appeal looks to have been covered with an oil slick.

    We'll see what happens in November and you redneck teabaggers better man up and get your big ole butts over here to take your whippings.

    We've been hearing every election cycle since 2004 that you all are going to win big.

    We'll see.

    Rasmussen says... :lol:
