NY-26: The Demise of Both the GOP and Tea Party Begins!
The story was as follows…
A congressional race that may test voter support for a controversial Republican plan to overhaul Medicare remains tight before Tuesday’s special election, with a new poll suggesting that the Democrat now has a slight edge.
The special election to fill a House seat in upstate New York was supposed to be an easy victory for Republican Jane Corwin, left. But support for Democrat Kathy Hochul, right, is growing. Democrat Kathy Hochul has been campaigning in the western New York district against the House GOP plan to remake Medicare. She had support from 42% of likely voters in a survey released Saturday, compared to 38% for Republican Jane Corwin.
Republicans have long represented the district, so gains by Democrats are being closely watched well beyond the region.
The poll, conducted by the Siena Research Institute, surveyed more than 600 likely voters and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.9 percentage points.
In a Siena poll three weeks ago, the Democrat had trailed the Republican candidate by five percentage points.
Support for a TEA PARTY candidate appears to be fading (much like the entire, corporate led movement). Businessman Jack Davis was picked by 12% in the most recent poll, about half the support from the prior survey.”
And this recent news is now joined by the announcement today that all challenges to the recall of three GOP State Senators in Wisconsin have been exhausted and that now recall elections WILL BE HELD!
Between the GOP choking up a sure thing in upstate New York, and Scooter Walker about to lose his Republican majority in the Wisconsin legislature, the only thing that could possibly make it any worse for the Republicans would be for Tim ‘ZZZZ’ Pawlenty to announce he’s going to seek the GOP Presidential candidacy….OOOOPS! Never Mind!
Thanks to you Koch Brothers. And thanks to your wealthy, corporate brethren. While we have had to suffer the incompetence that is the earmark of your candidates, most of them from the ever pandering GOP, you have shown true Americans how much we stand to lose if we don’t stand up and fight to save our country from your selfish corporate interests that would destroy our democracy in pursuit of the all mighty dollar. That you have fooled so many Americans through your lies, deceit and fear mongering, into doing your dirty work under the guise of the Tea Party is something we will never forget, AND NEVER FORGIVE!
