Field Marshal:

There should be term limits or at least an age limit to serving in congress. Byrd at 91 is of no use to the people of WV. Of course, they keep electing the KKK man so i guess it serves them right. But enough already.

J.D. Heyworth? He lost his congressional seat in 2006. I doubt John Mccain is going to lose. He has become a true-blue partisan rightwinger.

The republican primary electorate may not be happy with McCain. Probably due to his stance on immigration.

Field Marshal:

I would like to see Sheriff Joe Arpaio run for the seat!

Feild Marshal - You'd like to see one of the most despicable elected officials in the country run for the senate? Why?

Gopherguy:

The right wing is going to destroy the Republican party if these numbers are correct. If Heyworth beats McCain and Rubio beats Crist then the party will truly be sorry. Crist is a great candidate in the general, McCain is as well. Don't cut off your nose....

We have Obama, so what is one more, right?

Dispicable to you maybe but the people of Maricopa county overwhelmingly approve of him.

This Poll would have Mccain shaking in his boots. Kind of sad that even Mccain is too conservative for his own state. Hopefully getting rid of likeable moderates will be an opening for Democrats to win back some Republican seats, just like they did in upstate, NY. I certainly hope that opponents against Blanche Lincoln in Arkansas will poll even better for my party to nominate real Democrats instead of the conservadems.

Of course this is Rasmussen. I suppose they hate Obama so much that it is pretty telling that the people who they get to do these polls, among republicans would want to defeat the guy who lost to that radical socialist, Barack Obama. The right wing is so predictable.

Lincoln is fine. Let's keep a big tent party. Instead, take the seats in Missouri and New Hampshire. If we took those while keeping the others you would definitely see a more liberal agenda.

Well Lincoln's political future depends on her vote to provide some sort of public option or health care reform to help provide the quarter of people in her home state who are uninsured. Google this statistic. Arkansas and Texas were two of the worst. As for Mccain, the GOP in this day in age hates bipartisanship. Both Crist the senatorial candidate in Fl and Mccain represent the type of Republicans we had in the 1960's and 70's. When the party got hijacked by Christian conservatives in the south, the party went downhill.

Cyril Washbrook:

Farleftandproud, I don't care what Googled statistics say. Arkansans are heavily opposed to the health care reform plan, as most polls show. Arkansas is not a liberal state, and Lincoln is not too conservative. The netroots' insistence that any Democratic loss is because the candidate wasn't liberal enough precisely mirrors conservatives' insistence that any Republican loss is because the candidate wasn't conservative enough.

Farleftandproud:

Well, supporting health care coverage that doesn't include federal abortion coverage and doesn't raise the deficit and at least will be on it's way to covering more people, that will be a victory for any senator regardless of state. West Virginia is not a liberal state either and as someone wrote above about Senator Byrd, that was insulting. Byrd is a man who made mistakes when he was young, and has repented and come clean with his racist past. He was against going into the Iraq war when other liberals like Hillary and John Kerry supported it. Sen. Rockafellar has been a huge mover and shaker in this health care debate and his state re-elects him by huge margins.

I love to hear from conservatives that when their party is in power, they would love to pass a ammendment to not allow fillibusters, like Sen. Frist did about 5 years ago. It is also amazing that when it is a elderly Democratic senator with an existing seat, they would love term limits, but I could also say that Senator Grassley wouldn't be able to run either. Dems wished for years that Strom Thurmond and Jesse Helms had term limits as well. What comes around goes around and if the senator shouldn't be re-elected than it is up to the opposing party to find strong candidates to run against them.

Farleftandproud:

The More anti-immigration candidates the GOP picks in California and the Southwest, the better it will be for Democrats in those districts. It will bring Latinos out to vote and they will come out in huge numbers if the GOP goes too far in their stand against illegal immigration. Bush may have made me happiest when it came to his stand on immigration. He supported amnesty's and concrete solutions that wouldn't cause an outrage. Jeb Bush and his brother to their credit did pretty well with Hispanics due to their moderate policies. Others like John Cornyn in Texas, John Kyl in AZ and numerous congress people from CA, TX, and AZ anger them.

If McCain loses to the likes of Heyworth the country is in big trouble.

The Arizona electorate as a whole, hopefully, are more stable than the "tea partiers", and will reject a Rush Limbaugh "wannabee" from the extreme right.
