Could Michele Bachmann Lose in November?

“Bachmann’s unsuccessful bid for president had a clear and negative impact on her standing among voters in the new Minnesota 6 CD. She received low marks on both her job performance and personal favorability,”

Salon.com: In just three terms, Rep. Michele Bachmann has become an institution in the House, raising more money than any of her colleagues in either party and serving as the face of the insurgent Tea Party movement in Washington. With a massive war chest, a huge national following, and close allies with very big microphones, she seems unstoppable — so much so that she was at one point a front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination. But despite all that, there is a real possibility that Bachmann could lose her reelection bid this November.

Ask Dr. Paul

Before you cut down people ask Dr. Paul what he thinks.

Ron Paul Can only make that

Ron Paul Can only make that choice for himself. michelle bachman is a public candidate and we are the people. if we see flaws, we better tear her apart. the traditional patriotic way was would be a nice layer of tar then a feathering for supporting big government policies. she is getting off easy, if anything she tried to be this big star, well you got so big everyone was able to see who you really are, a big government idiot, who claims god gave her the idea to run for president. maybe that is why she is loosing votes? you can even rip up this woman because she is already so lame.

With Your Attitude

Then you vote for anyone who runs against her - IMO that would be stupid.

Replacing Oath breakers is desirable.

Party Unity so-called keeps unworthy people in office.

Dump incumbents. This Congress hates us for our liberties.

Free includes debt-free!

very true, the way they write

very true, the way they write me back really shows they think their constituents even the awake ones are retarded.

She is a complete nutcase

and that's all I am gonna say. She has no business being in office anywhere in my opinion.

Who Cares?

Why is this on the front page? Nobody cares about that dingbat.

skippy

I sure hope

crazy lady does not get elected again.

it's a double edged sword

on one hand Bachman will go down due to the lack of a major 3rd party challenger, but then that is one more democrat in the house.

Democrat, Republican

They spend the same, grow the government the same, and trample on the constitution the same. There is no right and wrong party in my opinion. There are only individuals who respect the constitution, and those that don't.

Beautiful

even some of us awakened ones still believe in the left right BS, not me, and not you. We may not win the election, but we will expose the BS, and with that I am satisfied. Our time is here, it is just a matter of time, be patient.

Yeah... but...

Congressman Larry McDonald was a Democrat.

"He [Larry McDonald] was the most principled man in Congress." -- Ron Paul

McDonald—who considered himself a traditional Democrat "cut from the cloth of Jefferson and Jackson" — was known for his conservative views, even by Southern standards. Given his Old Right and Southern views he was more conservative than the Republican party.

In fact, one scoring method published in the American Journal of Political Science named him the second most conservative member of either chamber of Congress between 1937 and 2002 (behind only Ron Paul).

McDonald was frequently opposed by members of his own party, once remarking that "The national [Democratic] party is a bunch of kooks" but that he had "no problems" with Georgia or 7th District Democrats. However, in 1978, the Seventh District Democratic Committee voted, 10–8–1, to pass a resolution to "censure" McDonald "for the dishonorable and despicable act of calling himself a Democrat."

The main reason for the censure was McDonald's membership in the John Birch Society. Other reasons included: McDonald's support for denying there were no implied powers in the U.S. Constitution, the claim that McDonald did not favor anti-monopoly laws, McDonald's lack of support for Jimmy Carter, and the claim that McDonald ran misleading advertisements. McDonald's reply stated the censure was "illegal" under party rules, but that the action would probably help him at the polls: "It proves beyond any doubt to all my constituents in the Seventh District that I represent them and that I am not the puppet of a clique of liberal, disgruntled party bosses."

She should lose. She is a nut job!

I never knew anything about her except that I kept hearing her name at the beginning of the Iowa caucus. I kept hearing how she was in the lead. Then when I actually heard her speak…I remember thinking that the only people who would support her were the extreme religious right (you know who you are:-) And the way that she would go out of her way to attack and insult Dr. Paul, made me wonder if she and Santorum were twins that were separated at birth. The woman is (in my opinion) an absolute idiot! It is frightening to think that people like her can be elected to public office. You have to wonder about the people of her district. If they did not know what an idiot she was before, they certainly should by now.

The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men and women to not support Ron Paul!

I remember an interview

with Jesse Ventura and he said that she was his congresswoman. No wander he lives 6 months out of the year in Mexico, I would too!

I SWEAR

Her and Sarah Palin HOW THE HELL DID THESE DINGBATS EVER GET INTO PUBLIC OFFICE??!!

She is a Neo-Con

I saw her make trips to Israel and received money from AIPAC. She stated waterboarding was not torture. Sorry I cannot support someone with those views. She had better change her ways if she wants to be an influence in a Ron Paul Presidency.

She said Ron Paul's policies...

...were dangerous...too whom? The elite! Therefore, she is a part of it just for making that statement! Too obvious!

Of all the GOP candidates that ran for president,

Michele Bachmann was the only one other than Ron Paul who was a fiscal Conservative. She's dangerous on foreign policy, but, nevertheless, I hope she keeps her seat because of her fiscal views. Any other Republican would be just about as hawkish as her, but, not anywhere near as fiscally Conservative.

You are

talking about Michelle Bachmann right? The one that was in with the establishment plan to snuff out the only true fiscal conservative Ron Paul in Iowa ?
The women/THING is a class A Bitch and doesnt have a Conservative bone in her body...wake up!
She was used by establishment and now she is being thrown in the garbage where she belongs....thats what you get when you try and "work" with the establishment...
Like it or not Rand will receive the same blow back in due time. That guy KILLED his voting base and the establishment will soon see him for what he is, a Useful Idiot and will flush him down the toilet soon as well. people will NEVER learn....

They all tried to flush RP

down the toilet. I don't support people based on how they treat Ron Paul. I support or din't support people based on their voting record and I know if a different person gets elected to Bachmann's seat that he/she will not vote as Conservatively as Bachmann.
