Why are the Dems even running an opponent in the Senate race?? Its embarassing. These Dems are doing worse than Obama did in Idaho.

Why even poll the senate race at this point? Its over.

Interesting that the Reps may pick up an unexpected house seat here.

Indeed....Berg is polling ahead right now. I think Pomeroy has been there forever hasn't he?

I wouldn't ever say that ND would be an unexpected seat since it it is overwhelming Republican. It sounds like ND seems to like their politicians. I saw a poll that had 81 percent of the American public would like to throw out their congressman. I think both parties should have a lot of primary challengers this year.

I think VT and ND may be the only states that like their elected officials.

I guess Hoeven is the most popular elected official in America. That is why Dorgan stepped down. Having a strong candidate from a party will help others to win on their coatails. I know as soon as Andrew Cuomo jumps in the Gubernatorial race it will boost Gillibrand's re-election chances a lot. If Patterson runs, I think I would move to Canada. It would be a stupid as you could get in politics.

North Dakota's unemployment is very low, the budget is in the black, and Hoeven is not a partisan warrior.

Small state governors are in better position. It's much easier to balance budgets in small states, particularly one like ND that's so inexpensive in many ways. The only small state that's doing very badly that I know of is Rhode Island, which I'm not sure why since the rest of New England has weathered the economy relatively well.
