  •  Brock Vs Shumlin (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    Christopher Walker, Setsuna Mudo

    a couple of major factors in this race, not apparent in the August poll:
    1. Shumlin's response to the havoc of TS Irene puts him squarely in the legend category of Vermont governors. His leadership during that major crisis is widely applauded. That alone will carry him to reelection.
    2. Bernie Sanders and Peter Welch are going to win by landslides, depressing republican turnout and giving dems and progressives a great reason to vote.
    3. Obama will likely carry the state by 30 points or more.
    4. Our unemployment rate is in to 5-6% range, so the dissatisfaction quotient here is much lower than in the Rust Belt and Foreclosure Belt.
    5. Most Vermonters like the idea of publicly financed health care, a signature achievement of the Shumlin agenda early on.

    Brock is looking to spend somebody else's money. In that he will be successful.
    That will be it.

    Class war has consequences, and we are living them.
