    Many Democrats have sided with Turner (R) in an attempt to send a message to President Obama to start listening to what the people want. Turner is a business man with little to no political experience. The polls have Turner up with 24 hours to go.

    Bob Turner (R) 47%
    David Weprin (D) 41%

    Public Policy Polling
    Sept 8-11
    MOE +/- 3.8$


    I think the public is sending a message. Question is, WILL OBAMA LISTEN??? :eusa_whistle:

    I think we can glean some insight into next years election from this election result. Is it a sign of things to come? I think it will be.

    Cool. So you are saying this is a lock, right?

    I'd say not a lock...which is why the Republican vying for the seat has decided he's was going to use the 9/11 anniversary for a little Islamaphobia.

    We are seeing Republicans loose in their districts as well. Much of the electorate is seething and angry in a non partisan way and wants change for its own sake.

    even if they pick a wacko like turner....

    fwiw, turner gave anthony weiner a run for his money in the last election and weprin doesn't have weiner's incumbancy status.

    weprin is a good guy, though. he should win. if he doesn't it's ny's loss because the last thing ny needs right now is a tea party nutter who wants to cut money to schools.

    after this emotional weekend and all who is really going to vote? I would say no matter who wins this is no where near a test for 2012, to even go there reeks of desperation. from either party.

    It should be an interesting vote, especially if the Jews in the district turn their backs on the dimocrat candidate.
