The smell of Republican pessimism is almost as good as the aroma of fresh coffess in the morning. And today, with regard to the MS-01, there is plenty of pessimism in the air. First comes a report from the Washington Post's Chris Cillizza that national Repubicans may have been ready to throw in the towel as early as this past weekend.
Despite the onslaught of spending, knowledgeable sources on both sides of the aisle insist little has changed in the last 21 days. Childers is believed to have a mid single digit lead over Davis with Republican strategists turning pessimistic about their chances in the last 48 hours or so.
And finally, I leave you with this little nugget from Redstate.
Any MS posters and can u tell us what the feeling of this race is? The election is Tuesday and should be very close.
Davis had Cheney come in today. Was this a good move?
Any MS posters I have a bad feeling....
Your updates are great, but something like this is best left to an open thread. That said, it looks like the bottom is falling out nationally. I hope I'm wrong, and I very well could be, but I don't think we manage to hold this.
A rampant rumor is that Childers leads by about 5% in interal polls. However, is such a red district, that does not give us a lot of room to breath. It's going to come down to GOTV, where I think we have the advantage after the DCCC recently spent a lot on phones, literature and field organizing. Let's keep our fingers crossed.
