  •  Considering how he literally shot a cap and trade (8+ / 0-)

    bill in a 2010 ad, I don't think anyone can claim he's anti gun. So what if the NRA doesn't give him an A. Normal voters are going to see through that. I think he's going to be senator for a long time and a fairly reliable Democrat at that.

    PPP really needs to poll here though as we haven't had a single good poll since Rockefeller retired. I don't understand why they haven't even been offering it as an option.

      PPP may release great, accurate polls, but what they choose to include as options is a reflection of their partisanship.

    •  That's what saved him that year (0+ / 0-)

      after that ad he regained momentum, and never look. When people who follow politics think of Joe Manchin, that the first first they will remember come to mind. Even when he's long and gone.

    •  Polling WV-Sen (0+ / 0-)

      What would be the point when there's still not a Democratic candidate? A Capito vs. generic D poll helps, sure, but I think the unwillingness of anyone to run (at least so far) tells us more than polling over a year and a half from the election.

      Now polling the 3 US House districts - that could be interesting.
