A majority of Americans and even many Democrats consider President Obama's tenure to be a "failure," according to a new poll from the Washington Post and ABC News.
Those saying Obama has been a failure include one in four Democrats (25 percent), nearly three in 10 liberals (29 percent) and the vast, vast majority of conservative Republicans (92 percent). Nearly one in five liberals (18 percent) say they feel "strongly" that Obama has been a failure.
In a Roll Call column published Monday, the electoral expert said he is expecting Republicans to gain at least seven seats in the Senate and earn a November victory more dramatic than several pollsters have suggested.
However, nothing is certain in today´s climate of duplicate democrat votes, illegal alien votes, dead people voting, etc.
It will need to be a substantial wave because Republican candidates must run against Democrat opponents and the liberal media.
Senate Republicans are preparing an agenda for their first 100 days in power next year in case they win majority control of the Senate.
The agenda includes authorizing the long-delayed Keystone XL oil pipeline, approving “fast-track” trade authority, rolling back new Environmental Protection Agency regulations and repealing Obamacare’s unpopular tax on medical devices.
Even if Republicans can win a net gain of six seats to seize control from Democrats, the Republicans would be far short of the 60-vote majority needed to break filibusters. That could make it difficult to push through their legislative wish list.
Still, Republicans said that many of their priorities have support from Democrats, including giving the go-ahead to the Keystone XL pipeline and repealing the medical device tax.
One of the most striking findings in the latest Washington Post-ABC News poll was the degree to which the president’s approval has slipped among key parts of the Obama coalition — the women, youth and Latino voters most responsible for putting him into office.
An article in the Sioux Falls Argus Leader, my old hometown newspaper, reports that an early September winter storm in the Black Hills has dumped up to 8 inches of snow in the area, while Rapid City received its earliest snowfall in more than 120 years.
The snowfall in downtown Rapid City is the earliest in the city since 1888.
