McConnell makes grim prediction about Republicans in Senate races, references 'candidate quality'
The Senate Minority Leader implied that he has higher hopes for House races

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, thinks that Republicans have a lukewarm chance of flipping the Senate in November, citing "candidate quality" as a factor.

The senator made the honest prediction at the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce luncheon on Thursday afternoon.

"I think there's probably a greater likelihood the House flips than the Senate," the minority leader anticipated. "Senate races are just different, they're statewide. Candidate quality has a lot to do with the outcome."

"Right now, we have a 50-50 Senate and a 50-50 country, but I think when all is said and done this fall, we’re likely to have an extremely close Senate. Either our side up slightly or their side up slightly," McConnell explained.

The Kentucky senator – who has led the Republican Party in the U.S. Senate since 2007 – has weathered midterm defeats in the past. The GOP failed to capture a Senate majority in 2010 and 2012 due to candidates like Todd Akin in Missouri and Christine O’Donnell in Delaware.

It remains to be seen how Senate elections will play out. While Republican J.D. Vance holds a 5-point lead over Democratic opponent Tim Ryan in Ohio according to a new Emerson College poll, the race remains tight.

The same survey says Ryan is ahead of Vance in favorability, receiving 54% over Vance's 50%

Meanwhile, in Pennsylvania, analysts are predicting that lieutenant governor John Fetterman holds a stronger lead over Republican candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz. Cook Political Report says the Pennsylvania race has shifted from "toss-up" to "lean Democratic."

Democrats hold 4 point lead over Republicans on generic congressional ballot: poll

Democrats are leading Republicans by 4 percentage points on a generic congressional ballot, according to a new poll.

A Politico-Morning Consult poll released Wednesday found 46 percent of registered voters would choose the Democratic candidate compared to 42 percent who would choose the Republican if the election for Congress was held in their district today.

Twelve percent either said they did not know or had no opinion.

The poll is the latest showing Democrats just outpacing their Republican counterparts on a generic congressional ballot. Another recent survey showed more respondents supporting the Democratic Party controlling Congress than the Republican Party.


The Politico-Morning Consult poll also shows that 42 percent of respondents approve of President Biden’s job as president, up 3 percentage points from a poll that Politico and Morning Consult released last week.

Democrats are expected to encounter several headwinds in November, including the president’s still-underwater approval ratings, inflation and the precedent that a first-term president’s party usually suffers some losses in the midterms.

But Democrats have some reasons to feel optimistic, too. Biden signed a sweeping climate, tax reform and health bill on Tuesday after Democrats passed the reconciliation package in Congress. It was considered a major feat for the party given previous failed attempts to pass a social spending bill.

Recent data has also shown inflation has started to cool off, though it’s unclear if the trend will continue. A July jobs report that outpaced economists’ expectations is also considered a boost for Democrats.

The Politico-Morning Consult poll was conducted between Aug. 12 and Aug. 14 with 2,005 registered voters. The margin of error is plus or minus 2 percentage points.

GOP Advantage Ticking Upward Again Democrats' Mid-August Bump​

Mar-a-Lago, abortion, and climate change don't actually appear to be helping the Democrats or hurting the GOP.

A new NBC News poll released on Sunday shows Republicans are up 47-45 over Democrats when voters are asked who they would rather see in control of Congress. That 2-point advantage brings the GOP up 0.2 percent over Democrats in the RealClearPolitics rolling average, and it’s the first lead Republicans have taken over Democrats in a week.

The GOP’s numbers in the generic ballot started falling after August 8, the RCP charts show, indicating that the raid at Mar-a-Lago may have played some role in the fall. However, it’s worth noting that the Democrats’ numbers also started falling around that date and that they did not top the GOP’s numbers until a week later.

The data coming from #Fakenews CNN 🤔😂😂

The race is still 2 1/2 months away. Walker and Dr. Oz will start close on the 2 avowed Kommies when the folks people start focusing in on the races..These RAT polls are of registered voters, not likely voters. Rubio, Vance, and Johnson will win going away. The Arizona race will be close but masters will also close out the RAT Kelley.

2010 RATS had 6 point lead in the generic poll in late October and GOP won 1000 seats nationwide.

The 2022 midterm elections are now 74 days away, and Republicans still have a five-point lead in their bid to recapture control of Congress.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that, if the elections for Congress were held today, 47% of Likely U.S. Voters would vote for the Republican candidate, while 42% would vote for the Democrat. Just four percent (4%) would vote for some other candidate, but another eight percent (8%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The GOP lead is unchanged from last week, when they led 46%-41%. Republicans have led the Generic Congressional Ballot all year, although their lead has narrowed since mid-July.

Imagine, a liberal democrat bringing up an article about "candidate quality". The party of Maxine Waters, AOC, Ihlhan Omar, Debbie Wasserman Schultz (aka the Flamethrower), Corrine Brown for 20 years. We lost two senate seats in Georgia because A. Our candidates were neither good nor passionate B. Dems cheated their asses off with mail in votes, drop boxes, bundling and who knows what else.

Midterms will play out the way we originally thought. Republicans will flip about 25 House seats and will squeak out a victory in the Senate.

'I think you're wrong about it' | Herschel Walker comments on poll showing lagging support from Black voters
Data shows that Sen. Warnock has the backing of Black voters in Georgia.

what’s this ?


@RayGravesGhost

Herschel now leads the racist kommunist in Georgia in two polls. This lead will widen for Walker


The latest Emerson College Polling survey of the Georgia general election finds Senator Raphael Warnock trailing his Republican opponent, Herschel Walker by two points, 44% to 46%. Four percent plan to vote for someone else and 7% are undecided. Regardless of whom they support, 53% expect the incumbent Senator Warnock to win while 47% expect Walker to win. This reflects a tightening of the race since April, when the Emerson College poll had Walker ahead 49% to 45%.

Spencer Kimball, Executive Director of Emerson College Polling said, “Walker leads Warnock among rural voters 58% to 24% while Warnock leads Walker 66% to 25% among urban voters. In the suburbs, voters are breaking for Walker by a nine-point margin, 50% to 41%.”

Doug Mastriano touts endorsement from ultra-orthodox rabbi who expresses sympathy for Capitol rioters and believes Hitler was part lizard​

  • PA gubernatorial candidate Mastriano touted an endorsement from Joseph Kolakowski, an ultra-orthodox rabbi.
  • Kolakowski has expressed sympathy for Capitol rioters and believes Hitler was part lizard.
  • Kolakowski told Insider he felt Mastriano was being "falsely maligned" as antisemitic.
Pennsylvania GOP gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano touted an endorsement from Joseph Kolakowski, an ultra-orthodox rabbi who expressed sympathy for Capitol rioters and believes Hitler was part lizard.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported Mastriano shared a story by the Epoch Times, a far-right publication, with his supporters on social media with the headline: "Rabbi Endorses Mastriano as Shapiro Calls Him Antisemitic in Pennsylvania Gov. Race."

In the article, Kolakowski — who leads a Hasidic Jewish ministry in Pennsylvania — defended Mastriano, saying, "while the Democrats have the chutzpah to claim that those of us from the Party of Lincoln are somehow racist, they do not look at the racist tenants of their own party, including abortion and gun control, both of which cause undue and disproportionate harm to people of color, and are historically rooted in openly racist ideologies."

The Inquirer reported the 38-year-old rabbi frequently posts on his YouTube channel about unfounded claims of fraud in the 2020 election, his support for Capital rioters, and believing in a theory that Adolf Hitler was part lizard.

In one video about the Nazi dictator, the rabbi said there's "a reason why he never took off his boots."

"[It] was to hide the fact that his feet were reptilian in nature because he came from this nonhuman race, demonic race. He was a hybrid."

In an email to Insider, Kolakowski acknowledged his past comments about Hitler but said the story may be more of an urban legend and doesn't know "if it is literally true." He also said that he reached out to the Mastriano campaign because he felt the senator was being "falsely maligned" as antisemitic.

In an interview with the Inquirer, Kolakowski said after he reached out to the campaign he was asked to write something. His statements were later published in the Epoch Times.

Jewish leaders and Democrats have criticized the Trump-backed candidate for his ties to far-right extremists and his efforts to garner support on Gab, a social network founded by a self-described Christian nationalist.

Mastriano praised the site's founder, Andrew Torba, who has said Jews are not welcome in his movement. Insider reported that Mastriano also paid the site $5,000, per campaign finance filings.

Mastriano is running against Democratic candidate Josh Shapiro in Pennsylvania's gubernatorial race. Recent polls show Shapiro ahead of his opponent by 7.3 points.

Mastriano's campaign did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
