Wednesday Open Thread [7.2.14]

Filed in Delaware by on July 2, 2014

Sorry for being absent the last two days. Came down with what I think is walking pneumonia. Boy does that knock you on your ass. So today here is some poll numbers:

LOUISIANA–SENATOR–Public Policy Polling: Sen. Mary Landrieu (D) 47, Bill Cassidy (R) 47.

That is the polling on a stand alone runoff race between Landrieu and Cassidy. Remember, Louisiana law is, shall we say, strange. They hold an open all party primary on the general election date in November, and if no candidate gets over 50%, then the top two finishers compete in a December runoff. The polling on the November open primary is as follows: Landrieu leads with 44%, followed by Cassidy at 27%, Rob Maness (R) at 8%, and Paul Hollis (R) at 5%.

MICHIGAN–GOVERNOR–Public Policy Polling: Gov. Rick Snyder (R) 40, Mark Schauer (D) 40. This is a big improvement for Schauer, since he was down 10 points in April and by four points in December.

MICHIGAN–SENATOR–Public Policy Polling: Gary Peters (D) 41, Terri Lynn Land (R) 36.

NEW JERSEY–SENATOR–Monmouth University/Asbury Park Press Poll: Sen. Cory Booker (D) 43, Jeff Bell (R) 23.

PENNSYLVANIA–GOVERNOR–Philadelphia Daily News/Franklin & Marshall College: Tom Wolf (D) 47, Gov. Tom Corbett (R) 25

MASSACHUSETTS–GOVERNOR–Grossman Internal Poll: Martha Coakley (D) 47, Steve Grossman (D) 24.

KENTUCKY–SENATOR–Public Policy Polling: Alison Lundergan Grimes (D) 48, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R) 46.

SOUTH CAROLINA–GOVERNOR–Public Policy Polling: Gov. Nikki Haley (R) 49, Vincent Sheheen (D) in the race for governor, 49% to 46%.

NORTH CAROLINA–SENATOR–Civitas: Sen. Kay Hagan (D) 45, Thom Tillis (R) 42.

MISSISSIPPI–SENATOR–Rasmussen: Sen. Thad Cochran (R) 46, Travis Childers (D) 34

    From the FB Page of Sean Lynn. Does anyone know what he’s talking about? I wasn’t able to find anything.

    Today was a rough day.

    Today I suffered the first, of many I’m sure, attack(s) from one of my opponents.

    It took a few important people in my life to remind me why I’m doing this.

    It also reminded me of my conviction, that no matter what, it’s imperative that I take the high ground. That I don’t need to, nor will i, resort to the tactics employed by one of my opponents. That to do so is beneath me and beneath my constituents.

    So, yes, today was a setback, but I won’t be stopped. Because, in the end, they can’t attack my record and they can’t attack my character – so what else is left for them but to make up rumors and lies. It’s all they’ve got.

    Thanks for helping me keep my head up.


  2. Walking pneumonia? Saw you on Saturday, thought you were suffering from the boogie-woogie flu:

    Nah, the doctor says it is not walking pneumonia. It is just continued swelling of my upper respiratory tract due to allergies.

    Question for El Som – Not too sure where else to place this: As one State pensioner to another, I see where SB 261 sailed through Houses, 21-0 and 41-0 respectively. However, it was after the Budget Bill was passed and signed. In your opinion, was this unanimous approval so these “representatives” could claim that they supported the Bill, while full knowing that Markell would not touch it? BUT, if that is indeed the case, how did the casino bailout get passed and signed after the Budget Bill was passed? I did not work in the Hall like you did – 32 years in the human services trenches. Thanks in advance for your insight!
