Slip Slidin’ Away

From the report:

Against state House Speaker Thom Tillis, Hagan leads by only 2 points, 44 percent to 42 percent, according to the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling. She leads Rev. Mark Harris by 2 points as well, 43 percent to 41 percent, and nurse Heather Grant by 3 points, 43 percent to 40 percent.

Hagan trails physician Greg Brannon, the Rand Paul-endorsed candidate in the race, by 1 point: he leads 44 percent to 43 percent.

That’s a huge difference from PPP’s September poll, which gave Hagan leads of anywhere from 12 to 17 points against all possible GOP challengers.

These numbers come from lefty-left-left-left leaning PPP, and ought to be taken with a grain of salt. I’m just not certain which shoulder to throw it over, to the left or the right.

PPP releasing scary numbers like this could be a shot across Hagan’s bow, in a “Wake up, sister!” way. Or maybe it’s to make the Republicans get cocky and nominate a terrible candidate, henceforth known as the McCaskill-Akin Effect. Or it could just be that ObamaCare is going to mean absolute slaughter for the Democrats next fall, assuming the GOP can nominate enough not-crazies.

We’ll see.

This is what the Dems know, and it has them frightened. This is a view of what is coming next year. They know it. The 2010 slaughter will seem mild.

It's going to get worse for them. Mar/Apr will see more cancellations, this time of small biz policies. In the Fall, we will see notices announcing the new price hikes for policies, because not enough healthy people will have signed up to subsidize all the sick people. These notices will arrive just in time for the elections.

The Democrats are doomed, as long as the Republicans do not bail them out. The Repubs could get to 60 seats in the Senate, as long as they do not screw it up. They could repeal OCare, and watch Obama veto the repeal.

That will tee up the 2016 election just wonderfully.

But yeah, they need candidates. "It takes a candidate to beat a candidate."
