How in the hell can they expect Democrats to help out on a campaign when you have to win over those in your own party too. This is the most ridiculous election I have ever seen.

Blame it on Ed Case. This wasn't his district when he was in congress but, as he did in the senate race against Akaka, he put his desires over the needs of the party's and torpedoed in. Considering he's a DINO, that's not surprising.

The problem with the fact that one of these Democrats doesn't pull out is it is only asking for trouble Fox news is just going to have a field day when the Republican wins a seat in Obama's district. Does Ed Case really want this media attention? Perhaps he was paid by fox news big bucks just to up their ratings. That is my only reason. I know MN, VT and other states frequently have a left wing third party on the ballot, but that is not another Democratic candidate. I can't believe the DNC even wants to bother with this one.

Who cares about this one?

If the Repub wins, he'll be in office like two weeks or something.

He has no chance in Nov.

Hopefully no more Ed Case after this election is over, I'm predicting:
37% Djou
33% Hanabusa
30% Case
BTW when is there going to be a pollster trend for this one.

Hopefully Ed Case stops running for office after this. My prediction:
37% Djou
33% Hanabusa
30% Case
If Djou doesn't crack 40%, he'll likely be defeated in November. BTW no one should put too much stock in this poll. Merrimac polls are awful and I've noticed that they tend to be similar to that of republican push polls. However, regardless of the poll I think there is a 90% chance Djou will win.

More mindless Ed Case bashing in this thread. Just because he had the audacity to run against a Democratic incumbent Senator and didn't vote with the Democrats a FEW TIMES in the House, he must be the world's biggest scumbag.


Like it or not fellas, he's still probably back in Congress next January. Habunasa is the weaker candidate. Case beats her in all polls I've seen so far.

Also, approval ratings from a poll last week:

Ed Case: 63 / 24
Charles Djou: 55 / 29
Colleen Hanabusa: 41 / 43

And finally, a Harstad poll from a couple weeks ago shows Case leading by 8% over Djou in a general election while Hanubasa loses by 10.

If Djou wins the special, it's Hanubasa's fault than it is Case's. The Dems on this board would do well to stop playing the ideological purity game and put aside this rabid hatred of Case, because he's the best choice to win the seat in November.

Oh, and from Mason Dixon a few months ago:

Djou 21% Case (D) 52%
Djou (R) 36% Hanabusa (D) 43%

It looks pretty simple to me. Case vs. Djou this November, Likely Democrat. Djou vs. Hanubasa, pretty much a toss up. Especially this year, are the ideologues bashing Case really willing to risk losing this seat? I guess so, since he's apparently Satan reincarnated.
