Evening Political Roundup For May 17, 2012

by: SCRep

Thu May 17, 2012 at 17:30:00 PM EDT


Romney: Mitt Romney and the RNC raised $40.1 million in April, the campaign announced Thursday. President Obama and the DNC had announced a $43.6 million dollar haul a day before. The figure is a big improvement over Romney's $12.5 million total for March.

Super PACs: A super PAC led by TD Ameritrade founder Joe Ricketts has rejected a proposal that would link President Obama to his former pastor Jeremiah Wright, a line of attack that the GOP rejected in 2008 and one which presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney repudiated today. The $10 million plan, outlined in a 54 page strategy document, would include television and newspaper ads as well as outdoor advertisements and aerial banners.

AZ-6: Rep. David Schweikert received the endorsement of FreedomWorks in his race against Rep. Ben Quayle, following previous endorsements by Citizens United and the Club for Growth, as well as Sen. Pat Toomey. Quayle is thought to have the backing of much of the GOP leadership in the House.

CO-6: Rep. Mike Coffman is coming under attack for some comments made about President Obama'a citizenship. "I don't know whether Barack Obama was born in the United States of America. I don't know that," Coffman said. "But I do know this, that in his heart, he's not an American. He's just not an American." Coffman has issued a written apology and said he misspoke.

SC-7: Former Lt. Governor Andre Bauer and Horry County Council Chair Tom Rice lead in the race for the Republican nomination for the new 7th Congressional District seat according to a new poll commissioned by Francis Marion University and SCNOW.com. Bauer leads the nine person field of Republican candidates with 22 percent of voters polled, followed by Rice with 21 percent. Chad Prosser is third with 8 percent. 35 percent of those polled said they were still undecided.

WI-Gov: New Barrett ad
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

(-10.00, -3.49), libertarian socialist, "When smashing monuments, save the pedestals. They always come in handy."



-- Stanisław Lem


The ad feels like 'meh.'
I think that they got the aesthetics right for what they were trying to do. The sights and sounds were consistent. I think that the effect is partially negated by the fact that got a narrator who does guy-show voiceovers on cable, which conveys a coolness, but a lot of guys associate that voice with something that they like. It might do better with women than men. They also used the same clip of Walker twice for no good reason. I think that that reuse weakens the ad.

I strongly agree
about repeating the clip.

Definitive Proof Obama was born in Kenya
It's these kind of inaccuracies that always annoy me.
Little things can come back to give you a headache later, but it's nearly impossible to know which ones will be a problem, so people often don't care.

21, Male, Conservative Republican, TN-08 (home), VA-01 (college)

[ Parent ]
No, it isn't
The evidence is patently clear that Obama was born in the Hawaii and every scenario that I've seen attempting to argue otherwise is ridiculous. Therefore, it's certainly possible - pretty much a given - to know that whatever nonsense is presented to argue that Obama was born in Kenya will be a "problem" (though I welcome such nonsense).

Democrat, NC-11

[ Parent ]
Ah
I just realized that I read your intent wrong. Sorry about that! BTW, my 7th grade middle school records erroneously state that I was born in Greece. Which of course I wasn't. I was born at Memorial Mission Hospital in Asheville, NC. The irony is that I would have a tougher time convincing birthers that I was born in the U.S. than Obama does, since I had errors on my birth certificate as well, which had to be corrected and reissued when I found out at age 26.  

Democrat, NC-11

[ Parent ]
I'm glad that I read your second comment.
These kinds of things happen. My mother was badgered by the selective service to register for the draft when she was eighteen because they thought she was her great uncle (who I think had already served in WWII), seeing as she was his namesake. Her birth certificate was also a bit irregular, because the nurse recorded her as male, though it was quickly corrected, and never caused her trouble.

I guess claiming you were born in Kenya to help sell books
is kind of like claiming you are a Native American to help get a job at Harvard... Little inaccuracies that can come back to bite you in the behind.

[ Parent ]
As a published author, I've given up on correcting some "inaccuracies"
I try I try, things get fixed for one book, and the same error in my bio appears in another book. I find it's not worth my time. I could get my agent to push -- but I try to save her for more important stuff (e.g. getting advances and royalties paid in a reasonable amount of time).

C0-6:Coffman's comments
Stupid, stupid, stupid. I certainly hope this doesn't come back to bite him. Why can't people stay away from this issue? Leave it alone.

42, R, NE-1.

Was thinking the same thing
His race had been going so well. Stupid mistake. Hopefully it doesn't cost him much.

SC1-Charleston

[ Parent ]
I don't know if this was the case with Coffman, but
it seems often a constituent or potential constituent often asks the question, then the official/candidate is forced to answer. I agree that Republicans should try to stay away from the question, but if someone is staring you down and asking the question in a town hall, avoiding answering without a big chance of making others in attendance angry for not answering a question is not easy.

[ Parent ]
If I were a Democratic strategist,
I would be planting people in Republican event crowds to ask the question and catch the GOPers between a rock and a hard place. I don't think that's what happened here, but I would contemplate such a tactic.

21, Male, Conservative Republican, TN-08 (home), VA-01 (college)

[ Parent ]
that'd be smart
However, once word got out, every GOP politician would be on the lookout for it and prep responses, so it could end up backfiring.  Either way, this was very dumb of Coffman and certainly hurts him in a suburban swing district.

Bing for Peters... Clarke is looking more and more like an underdog here. http://www.freep.com/article/2...

I really don't get why they're not warming up to Clarke. Was it because he took down Mama Kwame? That should make him a hero to most rational people.

From IL-09, Living in PA-07.

Carl DeMaio for CA-52!


[ Parent ]
I don't think that's it
CCK brought down Barbara Rose-Collins due to ethical issues and it didn't seem to dog her.

My theory is that Peters may have promised the Detroit establishment that he'll run for Governor (or maybe Sen if it's open) in 2014. Then they can get someone more in tune with the Detroit establishment there.

Problem with that is Bing isn't really an establishment figure... It's more than a little puzzling.

R - MD-7


[ Parent ]
Additonal thought
maybe Bing wants the seat for himself, and maybe the rest of them want to get rid of him.

R - MD-7

[ Parent ]
I hope it...
isn't to set Peters up for Governor or the Senate.  He definitely wouldn't be my top choice for either position.  The last time he ran for statewide office (AG in 2002), it didn't go so well.  I still hope Clarke wins.

I highly doubt it
When AA voters will vote they will almost always vote for the AA candidate in a VRA district.
Anyway, I don't think he should have swapped districts.

[ Parent ]
I don't think so
my conjecture is that AA voters vote their machine, not their race. And the machine is quite clearly behind Peters here. I suppose we'll have a good test of that hypothesis in this race.

Peters isn't bad and its too bad they have to face off, but I really like Clarke and hope he pulls it out.

Walker/Martinez 2016

I didn't know it would be that large!
Apologies.

I thought it was 50-44
What is the 51-43?  

26, Male, R, NY-10

[ Parent ]
You can also map the whole time state in red
Because Walker is leading. You get my point. There are many more regions, some good for Barrett.  

26, Male, R, NY-10

[ Parent ]
The fact that Barrett is only
leading by 10 points in the Madison metro area should be extremely troubling for liberals.

Walker/Martinez 2016

[ Parent ]
That's registered voters
for some reason Walker does better with them.

Walker/Martinez 2016

[ Parent ]
Saw this poll yesterday
Everything is bad for Barrett here.  The fact that he's only winning Milwaukee 2:1 is a terrible sign--he's the sitting mayor and the city voted about 4:1 for Obama in 2008.  Also, the Madison numbers seem almost too close to be possible, but they do fit the rest of the numbers, particularly Walker romping in the more rural areas.

The really striking thing here is that Walker's doing only marginally better than McCain in the Milwaukee Burbs.  That was the only one of these regions to vote McCain in 2008, and has been practically every Republican's best area since the 80s at least.

I'd like to see a better breakdown of the "rest of the state" numbers, as there are some very different demographic areas there, and for Walker to be winning it by close to 30 points suggests he's winning every county outside the Lake Superior ones, Menominee, and Maybe Rock County.

Madison is going to be 70+ Barrett and the WOW counties (Waukesha, Ozaukee, Washington) will be 70+ Walker. The rest seems just about right.

Walker/Martinez 2016

[ Parent ]
hmm,
Does Milwaukee metro include Milwaukee? Else Scott Walker should be putting up landslides in Waukesha.

27, R, PA-07.

[ Parent ]
Agreed
There's no way Walker is winning statewide without putting up ~70 or more in Waukesha, Washington, and Ozaukee.  And there's no way Milwaukee County burbs and Racine are weighing him down that much.  I think Milwaukee metro must include the city if Walker is only pulling 54 there.

Saint Paul (MN-4)  

[ Parent ]
Ashland-Bayfield-Douglas
I can't see Walker winning these counties.

[ Parent ]
It's a regional map
This isn't predictive of which counties will go which way-if Walker won every county colored in red on here, he'd win in a landslide. The dark red counties just signifies the rest of the state outside of the Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay and Appleton/Fox Cities areas.

Nice map
I saw this on Ace's site this morning (might want to source it) and was definitely surprised by how low Barrett is polling in the Madison metro.  And the Milwaukee metro must be including the city because there is no way Walker is only pulling 54 in the burbs.

Saint Paul (MN-4)  

[ Parent ]
Tried this too
The "Milwaukee Metro Including the city" went for Obama by 9, and if Walkers leading by 18 in this poll, that would mean a normalized swing of +5 rep, which makes more sense than the previous -14.

Still, it seems odd that they would release separate numbers for a sub-region inside another region.

Walker/Martinez 2016

[ Parent ]
The counties to watch are
Pierce, Richland, Door, Iron, and Wood.  If Walker's winning four or five of them I think he's won the state.  If he's losing by a decent margin in two or three of them, well then we have big problems.

Saint Paul (MN-4)  

[ Parent ]
Agreed
Southwest Wisconsin will be the key to how well Walker performs, if it isn't going for Walker it's not going to be a landslide. The May 8th primary results match the 2011 Supreme Court race. Southwest Wisconsin hasn't warmed to Walker.

Walker/Martinez 2016

[ Parent ]
Yea
SW WI is the big problem area.  But it's not overly populated so Walker can win without it.  

We know Barrett will win big in Madison.  And Walker will win big in the Milwaukee burbs.  Therefore my four keys are:

1)SW WI: Walker needs to keep this area relatively close.  The only somewhat conservative areas are around Tomah, Richland Center and Buffalo County. If Walker is winning Richland and Buffalo counties, he's in decent shape.  If he's winning a third county (most likely to be Lafayette), I'll be ready to call the race early.

2)Twin Cities burbs:  Walker needs to perform well in the fastest growing area of the state.  They came through last summer in the Senate recall race so I'm confident.  But the area also went heavily for Obama and was rather close for Prosser.  If Walker is close or losing in Saint Croix, I'd be extremely nervous.

3)NE WI: Walker needs every vote possible here.  That means winning every county other than Menominee.  Door is the next most marginal so if he's winning Door by a decent amount, he's cleaning up here.  I'm very confident about this area.

4)Milwaukee: Can Barrett turn out black and hispanic voters?

Saint Paul (MN-4)  


[ Parent ]
By the way
Are you from Wisconsin are have some connection there?  You seem exceptionally keyed into the race.

Saint Paul (MN-4)  

[ Parent ]
I do social media
for the campaign.

Walker/Martinez 2016

[ Parent ]
Okay, I plugged this map into DRA
Here's the normalized swing (22 points) from Prez 2008 to this poll:

Milwaukee: -2 Rep (57 point Obama win to a 33 point Barret lead)
Milwaukee Burbs: -14 Rep (10 point McCain win to an 18 point Walker lead)
Madison Metro: +8 Rep (42 point Obama win to a 12 point Barret lead)
Green Bay + Appleton + Fox cities: +2 rep (10 Point Obama win to a 14 point Walker Lead)
Rest of state: +16 Rep (11 point Obama win to a 27 point Walker lead)

As you can see, the Milwaukee Suburbs aren't as red as they should be if you take a normal swing, and the rest of the state is more red than it should be.

Interestingly it would make way more sense if the numbers for "Rest of State" and "Milwaukee Metro" area were revered, producing normalized swings of +7 rep and -5 Rep respectively, which seems a bit more realistic.

23, Libertarian Republican CA-18
Liberals dream things that never were and ask why not.  Conservatives shout back "Because it won't work"


[ Parent ]
As I've said above
"Milwaukee Metro" must also be including the city of Milwaukee.  There's no way the numbers make sense otherwise.  It's kind of confusing because they give the Milwaukee city numbers on their own but it's the only explanation I can think of.

I'm not surprised by Walker's large margins in the outstate.  Many people up north have no sympathy for Madison area government workers and the circus they put on at the capitol certainly didn't win over many.

After all, the turnout for the WI recall in June may be 1/2 that of the November general election.

IL-12
I'm surprised IL-12 was listed for Republicans. I think it's a swing district that might even be Democratic leaning and the GOP candidate, Jason Plummer, is very young and inexperienced (as evidenced by his campaign for lieutenant governor in 2010). Plummer does, however, have self-funding potential. Maybe a super PAC even is formed for the express intent of electing him (it's happened with other candidates with wealthy connections like George Holding who won the NC-13 GOP primary). I think Plummer's disadvantages outweigh the money his candidacy might bring to the race.

Republicans will pick up seats
If he's unsure of Democrats picking up IL-8 and NY-25 by listing them as bellweathers. Cook has 7 D seats that are favored to flip to R's and 5 R seats that are favored to flip to D (including IL 8 and NY 25). If Democrats didnt win those two, they would be looking at an atleast 5 seat Republican gain right off the bat.

AR-04
Why didn't the mayor of Pine Bluff or the mayor of Texarkana run for the guys? If either wanted a shot at moving up, this was their chance.

21, Male, Conservative Republican, TN-08 (home), VA-01 (college)

[ Parent ]
Or Magnolia or Arkadelphia, for that matter.


21, Male, Conservative Republican, TN-08 (home), VA-01 (college)

[ Parent ]
The mayor of Pine Bluff
is Carl Redus, who is black. Not only would Redus not play well in AR-04, but he's fairly corrupt.

The mayor of Texarkana, Arkansas is Wayne Smith, who is a Republican. Just FWIW, when you think "blue dogs leaving the Democratic Party and voting Republican," look at the area between El Dorado and Texarkana. It's the only area in the state where politics has changed down to the local level.

The mayor of Magnolia is Parnell Vann, who I don't know much about. I've heard he's got some ethical issues though. The former mayor of Magnolia, Bruce Maloch, is running as a Democrat for a State Senate seat in South Arkansas this year.

You have to realize that at the beginning, it looked like a State Senator (Gene Jeffress) would be a fairly good candidate. He is wildly popular in his Senate district and his brother is even more popular in his Staet Senate seat. When it became clear that Jeffress was not going to run a serious campaign, we got in huge problems...


[ Parent ]
Basically,
the only people who would have held this seat are:

1) Mike Ross
2) Larry Teague (State Senator)
3) Chris Thomasen (Chancellor of the University of Arkansas)

Jeffress is really our fourth best candidate.  


[ Parent ]
Ah
I thought that the mayor of Pine Bluff might be black, and that would a problem. I thought that Texarkana's mayor might be a Republican, but I thought it an unlikely possibility (Bowie County, TX is still Democratic at the local level).

21, Male, Conservative Republican, TN-08 (home), VA-01 (college)

[ Parent ]
The point is these aren't bellwethers
Because they're Likely or Lean D seats. If in 2010 I said LA-2 was a good example of a bellwether district to see if Dems would be successful nationally, you'd know I was blowing smoke.

That's close to what Israel is doing here. Setting expectations low.

34, R, CO-1 (Degette)


[ Parent ]
It's not going to work.
If he just mentioned them as possible pickups, then yes, it would be a good strategy, but people who know about specific races can tear the argument that those are bellwethers for retaking the House into tiny shreds.

21, Male, Conservative Republican, TN-08 (home), VA-01 (college)

[ Parent ]
Yep. most of the national media
including the NYT reporter who did the interview have no clue about individual House races. But to "experts", that's a head scratcher.

SC1-Charleston

[ Parent ]
If they don't win IL-8
or NY-25, they aren't winning anything. These are 2 of 6-7 districts that the pundits have favoring the Democrats. If they win districts like CA-10, then they could be winning something.

Likewise UT-4 is one that's toss-up at worst.

I'd say if Democrats win CA-10, PA-8, and NY-23, they may get 25. If Republicans are winning CA-47, IA=1, and MA-6 it's happening for the GOP.
