Clear indicator of a GOP disaster in 2012

A tracking poll published by the Democrats shows 9 term incumbent Congressman Jack Kingson trailing Obama Democrat Lesli Messenger by 4% in a "safe" Republican district. Previously, Kingston had never garnered less than 58% in his House races, winning in 2010 with nearly
72% of the vote.

Kingston voted for the Military Commissions Act, the Boehner budget sellout, renewal of The Patriot Act and the NDAA. Kingston is also
a long time supporter of Mitt Romney.

Do ya think?

We have an economy that is flat on its back.

We have over 8% unemployment

We have a man in the oval office that we can't even identify. (If you haven't watched Joe Arpeijo's news conference watch it!) I did not buy the birther's claims until I saw the evidence....Obummer is NOT who he says he is and millions know it!

Obama lied to his base about everything!

Yet...Romney is down five points to this guy!

Are you kidding me!

I see you are perceptive as I.

I correctly predicted

o The "Contract With America" Congress in 1992
o The Democrat takeover of the House and Senate in 2006
o The Obama landslide of 2008
o The "Tea Party" landslide of 2010

I have a better record of correctly predicting political trends than anyone except Ron Facheux and he has tons of resources. This is not rocket science, but only people such as you and I seem to bother to add up the political factors.

Romney has alienated the mainstream media, the "Rush Limbaugh" media, the Ron Paul supporters, the Tea Party and the "Christian Right". Obama has a solid hold on the "entitlement base," the unions and the minorities. Who does Romney have left, except maybe the Mormons and even they do not like a pathological liar?

I agree Bob, but...

there does seem to be cracks emerging in the minority base. I know MANY hispanic and african-american voters who really don't like nor trust Obama.

Certainly it could.

However, a drop that significant (from 71.6% to trailing a political novice) indicates more is going on than simple redistricting.

One of the reasons I posted this information was to have those with GOP incumbents find out if there has been a significant drop in support for the incumbent.

Besides, the Political Oddsmaker has been predicting a Romney landslide all year, while the present major polls show Obama leading by as much as 12%.

Can you (OP) please post link where you found this poll?

Immoral funding of Military Industrial Complex by Federal Reserve and US taxation system must stop!!!! End illegal/unconstitutional wars! Preserve US currency!

I can only copy the newsletter.

I hate John McCain so much I toyed with voting for Obama in 2008 and got put on a Democratic mailing list.

If anyone has their own website, I would be happy to send them a copy of the newsletter and I can post the link here.

The Democrats published a poll showing the Democrat on top. Hmm.

Re Georgia's Jack Kingston, sounds impossible.

That challenger is no liberty Democrat, but a progressive. What is the source of the poll? Either there is some serious flaw in the methodology, or Republicans are in deep, deep trouble. Last time, Kingston won over the Democrat challenger 72%/28%.

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.

The implosion of the GOP can only be good for the liberty movement. Either the GOP will embrace us or they will shrink into oblivion and we will emerge via growth of a strong third party. (I'm betting on the second possibility myself)
