    1. The latest poll was sponsored by Fox "News".
    1. Parts of Appalachia are caught in the past.

    look for my DK Greenroots diary series Thursday evening. "It's the planet, stupid."

    •  I wonder how the Fox pollsters ask the questions (1+ / 0-)

      For instance, do they mention Obama together with Manchin?

    •  You gotta be kidding me! (0+ / 0-)

      Just when my spirits were picking up because I read "The Republican wave has crested", seen pools showing the gap narrowing, getting ready to pull out my wallet, and then this diary showing just the opposite slamming me back in the dumps!  Then I read

      The latest poll was sponsored by Fox "News".

      I can see listening to Fox to get talking points ("Do you know what I just heard on Fox?") but to base your election analysis on Fox results is assinine!

      It ruins all your credibility and puts you in the same fear mongering camp as Faux.  A lot of fine analysis turned to crap.

        Seem to be lagging quite a bit, and they are eternally pessimistic. This may be a good or a bad thing depending on your perspective, but I tend to look at this as the worst that can happen (based on current polling, of course; things could get a lot worse if opinion of Dems goes down). The current trends are definitely positive though. Don't give up!

          is to beat your base down to where they don't think they have a chance.  "What's the use?" "Why vote?"  "Why contribute?" "Why volunteer?" Eeyore, I know, but I think he went overboard with the fear mongering.
