  •  So much support? (3+ / 0-)

    I think thirty-six percent is pretty feeble!

    Isn't anyone paying attention?

    This is what attack ads are for. Fortunately, Hochul's already been hitting Corwin on this. She needs to keep it up.

    •  Town halls haven't needed attack ads. (0+ / 0-)

      I'm not aware of any attack ads preceding the town hall slapdowns that so many Republicans are experiencing.  And unlike the national media, I notice that the people attending those events rose up in anger and protest when "their" Congresscritter tried to float one of their bald-faced lies.  (like, "I'm protecting Medicare").

      Anyway, it's not an attack ad to simply tell the truth. Guess we could call them Truman ads, though.

      An IRV poll would reveal whether that 36% is meaningful.  All it indicates now is that the crazy guy is getting lots of support.  If that option weren't there, would those people switch to a Democrat, or to someone who has blithely revealed their fanatical goal of privatizing Medicare?  Would the person who's riding that corporatist, debt-exploding train win, solely because she has an "R" next to her name?  That's what I was referring to when I mentioned "paying attention".
