Melvin,
We've been having our usual slugfest over race-baiting, and I have to say, you have been making the case extremely well for our conservative opponents.
Could you please refrain from bringing race into every other post you make?
For instance, when you say "Candidate X will win state Y because they have Z percentage of blacks and Hispanics" - you are implying that people vote for a party/candidate solely based upon their race. Time and again your comments could be construed as both simplistic and racist in origin.
Unless you really are a Republican operative, then we on the left will at least understand that you are deliberately trying to make us look bad - by injecting race continuously into every thread.
Mark

As a moderate, there is no way in hell, that I would vote for a republican. I hope people wake up before Novemeber, and realize how it would absolutely doom our Country, if we went back to the same policies, that got us in the mess to begin with.

Looks like Rasmussen has taken over UNH in order to drive their narrative more discreetly.

Of course this is actually a 2 or 3pt race as PPP suggests and not the 5-10pt race that every other pollster suggests. Shame on UNHmussen.

Mark, it has been clear for some time that Melvin isn't an actual liberal. Hes almost certainly a GOPer trying to make libs look bad. No one is actually as insane as he is trying to act and still has the ability to navigate the web.

Mark in la,
I don't know about conservatives, but most independents can seperate a loon from a mainstream liberal. Anyone who takes some of these people who claim to be liberals seriously, should know that they are not representative of the progressive movement. The same with some of these people who claim to be conservatives on this site and post irrational comments. The mainstream of both ideologies are actually pretty rational.

Well hot damn, some reasonable discussion and respect for people on both sides of the aisle. Didn't think we'd see that again..

Before trashing this poll people should take note that this pollster had Ayotte's margin at double the current one in their last poll.

Not only that, Ayotte's favorables were far better in the last poll as well.

Apples to apples, this is a good poll for Hodes

Ayotte up 8 points in an 'adult' poll. I guess NH isn't as regressive as its neighbors states VT and MA.
