Evening Political Roundup for February 21, 2012

by: SCRep

Tue Feb 21, 2012 at 17:30:00 PM EST


Arizona: A new We Ask America poll in Arizona shows Mitt Romney leading the GOP presidential primary with 37%, followed by Rick Santorum at 27%, Newt Gingrich at 15% and Ron Paul at 8%. A CNN poll shows a closer race, Romney 36%, Santorum 32%, Gingrich 18%, Paul 6%, Undecided 6%.

Michigan: A new Mitchell/Rosetta Stone Poll in Michigan shows Mitt Romney leading Rick Santorum, 32% to 30%, with Newt Gingrich at 9% and Ron Paul at 7%. Another 22% of voters remain undecided. Eight days ago, Santorum had a 9% lead and twelve days before that Romney led by 15% in the same poll. A Rasmussen Reports poll shows Santorum with 38% of the vote to Romney's 34%. Well behind are Texas Rep. Ron Paul with 10% support and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich at 9%.

Texas: Ted Cruz is narrowing the gap with frontrunner Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst according to a new Texas Tribune poll. Dewhurst led with 38 percent, followed by Cruz at 27 percent and former ESPN analyst Craig James and former Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert each with 7 percent.

New Mexico: Retired State District Judge James Hall released two preliminary proposals for comment by parties in the House redistricting case. He plans to make a final decision by Feb. 27. Hall adopted a redistricting plan in January, but the state Supreme Court overturned that Feb. 10, telling Hall to come up with a new plan that was less biased toward Republicans, kept more communities intact, and shored up Hispanic influence in a Clovis area district.

Tradition!

It's BS
The reason NY draws their maps so late is because late maps are an incumbent protection plan. All the incumbents know they are running for re-election and have been raising money and building war chests for years. The challengers usually dont decide to run until they actually know what the lines are going to look like.

By waiting so long NYS incumbent pols can choose their voters and their opponents (by drawing any successful fundraising challengers out of their preferred districts. And running the clock out makes it harder for anyone to quibble with the maps they drew because there is no time left to make another map.

Its typical NYS political shenanigans. Thats the only tradition they are keeping.


[ Parent ]
also it allows them to
move any challengers that prematurely announce out the district they were planning on running in.

Rick Santorum needs to turn this into a TV ad.
"If you just cut, if all you're thinking about doing is cutting spending, as you cut spending you'll slow down the economy," he said in part of his response. "So you have to, at the same time, create pro-growth tax policies."

Link

Play that and then rip him to shred on his record as MA Gov. while showing quotes like this on screen:

"It's hogwash. It confirms yet again that Romney is not a limited government conservative," said Andy Roth, the vice president for government affairs at the fiscally conservative Club for Growth. "The idea that balancing the budget would not help the economy is crazy. If we balanced the budget tomorrow on spending cuts alone, it would be fantastic for the economy."

Frankly, Santorum needs to get tougher. He can stop with the positive bio ads at this point, his favorability rating doesn't have much room to improve and the only rather mild 'negative' ad he's ran (the 'mud-slinging' one) was a questionably effective use of some of Romney's more mild heresies (and besides, whining about "mud-slinging" always weakens an ad).

Now naturally the Romney camp says it was a gaff (in an incredibly weak-sauce way) but that's not really the point...

The governor's point was that simply slashing the budget, with no affirmative pro-growth policies, is insufficient to get the economy turned around.  However, he believes that budget cuts - especially in the context of President Obama's unprecedented spending explosion - are a step in the right direction.  As he made clear in his economic plan, he believes that spending cuts that reduce the size of government and balance the budget are crucial to economic growth and job creation.

... this can not possibly help with conservative doubters. Romney needs to get his crap together and he does not appear to be doing so, he should not still be making gaffs like this. Reinforces my belief Santorum would be a stronger candidate.

Paul's latest epic deconstruction of Santorum.
Now airing in MI. If he and Romney weren't all buddy-buddy I would love to see what he could do to Romney:

Transcript:

[arrow pointing at Santorum] Is this dude serious? Fiscal conservative? Really? Santorum voted to raise the debt ceiling five times, doubled the size of the department of education, then supported the biggest entitlement expansion since the 60s. Not groovy.

Santorum voted to send billions of our tax dollars over seas to dictators in North Korea and Egypt, and even hooked planned parenthood up with a few million bucks! Rick Santorum a fiscal conservative? Fake.

Santorum: Pro-choice at one time
Of course he was a Pennsylvania Republican:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/...

28, Republican, PA-6


I voted for the first time today.
When the guy up front asked me if I wanted to vote in the Democratic or Republican primary, I almost laughed out loud before telling him 'Republican.'

President: Mitt Romney

Delegates: Romney has some interesting delegates. He has my state rep., Mark White, Fayette County state rep. Barrett Rich, former Gov. Winfield Dunn, and Shelby County Probate Clerk Paul Boyd.

D.A.: Amy Weirich's had no primary opposition.

Shelby County Commission, District 1, Position 3: Steve Basar, for the remainder of the current four-year term (interestingly, Basar is Jewish)

County Assessor of Property: Deputy Assessor John Bogan

General Sessions Court Clerk: Rick Rout, son of former County Mayor Jim Rout (who was a conservative Democrat). Rout was actually standing outside the early voting location, greeting voters from as close as was legal. That impresses me.

21, Male, Conservative Republican, TN-08 (home), VA-01 (college), MS-03 (weekend)


the election officials have to ask
Even if you were wearing a Tea Party T-shirt they'd have had to ask.

As to the list: It seemed that Dunn was always on someones delegate list when I lived back there. He'll probably be on the electors list for the general election as well. And yup, Romney grabbed heavily from members of the legislature already in office.

Yep. There were one or two that I left off, but Perry had a bunch, including Brian Kelsey. Newt had Stacey Campfield.

Kinzinger Leads IL-16
http://weaskamerica.com/2012/0...  

19, Republican, KS-03
Standing strong with Senator Roberts and Governor Brownback.


Wow
Kinzinger leads in both genders and all age brackets. I like the large sample size. 1,395 with a MoE of 2.62% is awesome.

21, Male, Conservative Republican, TN-08 (home), VA-01 (college), MS-03 (weekend)

[ Parent ]
The poll smells bunk
Even Kinzinger's internal had him trailing, and now a huge lead? I'm actually doubting if WAA actually polls.  

25, Male, R, NY-10

[ Parent ]
I mean it seriously
Huge poll samples in races that nobody (except here) is following and it doesn't seem like they have a business model like PPP to justify the huge costs to put out 3 polls a day. I have real suspicions.  

25, Male, R, NY-10

[ Parent ]
I wouldn't be terribly surprised to learn they don't.
If anyone knows a Republican in IL-16 it'd be good to ask him. At a sample size of 1,400 likely GOP primary voters, they must literally have dialed the number of every Republican in the area. And I'm not using "literally" wrong here.

[ Parent ]
The district
Is heavily R.
But with such a sample size, someone on your street was polled and 2 put down the phone.
You have contacts with Nate. Can you get him to look into it?

[ Parent ]
Kinzinger v. Manzullo
I have no opinion on the validity of WAA polls, but personally I don't see why IL-16 GOP voters would prefer some boring old useless back-bencher over a dynamic young rising star with statewide prospects. This is about what I would expect to see if the IL-16 GOP electorate was familiar with both candidates, and Kinzinger has been raising and spending a lot more money thus far than Manzullo.

Democrat, NC-11

[ Parent ]
Kinzinger
I certainly hope you're correct. Kinzinger is the future of the IL-GOP... he has none of the potential issues Schock could face and he's got a military background, too. Both are solid potential statewide candidates but I actually may even prefer Kinzinger to Schock statewide.

[ Parent ]
Schock
What potential issues could Schock face and how are they not ones Kinzinger has? Schock and Kinzinger strike me as similar to each other in that they are both young, telegenic, and had some experience in elected office before being elected to Congress. I don't know of any disqualifying issues either of them has but you are an authority on Illinois politics so I defer to you on the topic.

[ Parent ]
NCGOP
Well... I'd recommend a thorough Google search on him. I'm not saying the rumor you'll find is true, it's just that it could hurt him if brought up maliciously in a primary.

[ Parent ]
and that rumor is getting censored here on RRH, since
my comment about it, phrased very politely, was deleted.

rumors
If rumors haven't prevented Lindsey Graham from getting elected statewide in South Carolina, I don't really see much reason why rumors would be a problem for Schock running statewide in Illinois. You have to have something more than rumors for it to be consequential, and I'd say in this case the something more has to actually amount to more than what is rumored.

Wendy Long poised to run vs. Gillibrand
http://www.capitaltonight.com/...

She sure sounds at least a little more daunting than Maragos.

24, MA-07, Rockefeller Republican. Visit me at http://twitter.com/polibeast


Why is she better?
Than Maragos, who has been elected in Nassau County and has said he can self-fund? Can she self-fund? If she seems like a better candidate, I hope Maragos would consider dropping out if NY-04/05 is somewhat competitive (D+6-7 ish)  

Male, LA-01

Cassidy, Rounds, Ernst, Handel, Land for Senate!  


[ Parent ]
Yeah
Maragos strikes me as better for this one. He also might be a decent candidate for Comptroller in '14 if Wilson doesn't want to try again.

It seems like Long is more charismatic but also more vocally conservative, which is exactly what we don't need - why do we want to give Gillibrand a straw (wo)man to tear down and endear herself to the progressives for '16? We need someone boring, with enough money to throw a jab Gilli's way, but not enough of a threat to let KG make the election anything but a referendum on herself. Maragos seems to fit the bill.

R - MD-7


[ Parent ]
Nah, lets get a true conservative if we can
We are not winning this seat anyway. Might as well have someone who can articulate the conservative message as best as possible. Now if she has no money, that may be a reason to go with Maragos but otherwise we should go with the most conservative seeing how there is no chance of winning. Who knows, maybe if she makes a great argument, she can make inroads with future New York voters.

Member, Small Government Caucus

21, Pro-life Libertarian-leaning R, NC-1



[ Parent ]
Maragos is severely lacking in the charisma department
Yes, he's a wealthy elected official from a swing area, which looks impressive on paper. But Ed Cox and the state GOP establishment have hardly acknowledged the guy, constantly looking elsewhere, from Dan Senor to Maggie Brooks to Harry Wilson and now to Wendy Long, who seems ready to pull the trigger.

I think Cox fears Maragos is a guaranteed DioGuardi 2.0. - a candidate with decent credentials who's dull as dishwater and incapable of shaking the race up. It's not like DioGuardi was an offensive or incompetent candidate (he refused to endorse Paladino), but his campaign was way too low-key to compete statewide. Same thing with Maragos. Long, from what I gather, is very charismatic and might be able to self-fund, too.

24, MA-07, Rockefeller Republican. Visit me at http://twitter.com/polibeast


[ Parent ]
As I said above
Charisma is probably a net negative here. Nobody is going to beat KG, or even make it particularly close. KG is also very likely to run nationwide in the next 12 years or so. What we need is someone to dry run attacks on her and see what sticks. To do that we need someone as close to Generic R as possible.

Run Long and the race could very well become about her to an extent - a charismatic socially conservative woman is the exact kind of thing that drives limousine liberals crazy. Gillibrand will be able to score major points (and likely significant $) by "beating back that threat", in other words, tearing down the straw man. What do we have to gain from that?

R - MD-7


[ Parent ]
We need leadership
here in New York. We need someone to fight for lower taxes. We won't win on social issues but we can win on a pro-growth tax policy. Can you name the last Republican elected statewide in NY, besides the un-charasmatic Pataki? No. Because the GOP leadership puts up nobodies who are sacraficial lams and have no charisma or political experience.

Saying that we should have a low key candidate because of our platform is ignorant at best.

We've tried your suggestions for a decade, they haven't worked. If NY is going to continue to go downhill, we might as well fight for what we believe in.

BTW
The suburbs and upstate NY are very much still conservative. If we had a politician who got into office, cut their salary and cut taxes, the GOP would be taken seriously.

But, politicians in both parties are both tax and spend liberals. There's no difference. So until the GOP gets their act together (it's slowly happening), we cannot field a successful statewide candidate who is viewed as legitimate.

Democrats come out with a new stupid in Texas redistricting
There are 52 seats that contain at least one Republican incumbent that are wholly contained within one county. RED 100 - H303. Nearly half of these districts are underpopulated
(25/52).

Can anyone count the number of overpopulated districts?

27, R, PA-07.


TX Dems
The TX Dems and their legal counsel are in way over their heads. Nearly all of the deviations are because of the county line rule. For example, the Denton County districts on the balance will be underpopulated because the county is really entitled to slightly less than 4 seats. That said, the only reason they continue to make these population deviation claims is because they would very much like the county line rule to be made inoperable because the county line rule makes it impossible for the Dems to draw a map that would, as WI Dems might say, make it possible for them to "attain and retain a majority". Apply that same reasoning for their constant proportionality arguments and demands for coalition seats.

It'd be really good if there was some way to compare these to Hall's original map.  

WI-Gov Recall
Would it be possible to write in Scott Walker in the Democratic primary for the recall? I've seen this idea kicked around some other blogs, and I admit it sounds tempting. Remembering Walker's name is easier than remember which candidate is the fake Dem to vote for, and could more directly motivate Republicans to turn out and end things early in a crowded Dem primary.

However, I don't know what the rules are with regard to having a candidate run against himself in a recall. Has anyone looked into this?

Common Cause

Common Cause map
http://www.citizenredistrictny...

It's a decent guess, at least Upstate. Upstate could be good for the GOP, if a court draws Buffalo and Rochester districts that don't take Democrats out for other seats. The GOP would also like to keep Westchester out of other Upstate districts.

Long Island would be good to very good, as there could be 4 winnable districts. The biggest question is what happens in Brooklyn with the heavily Republican areas there.

R, CA-37; hometown: PA-2


[ Parent ]
I agree with Upstate
and downstate.  I think the City is poor on Common Cause.  There is no reason why not to draw three Hispanic-majority districts, which I think a court would do too.

Representative on Congress: Rep. Turner, OH

[ Parent ]
Where?
You can draw one in the Bronx and one in Brooklyn-Queens. You could turn NY-15 into a Hispanic majority district. That'd make sense based on current population. Courts, however, may be hesitant to create a district a Black candidate won't win.  

R, CA-37; hometown: PA-2

[ Parent ]
Well it helps that there are very few white/Asian people in NY-15
You can make a district that is about 50% HVAP, but also about 40% black. That would give NYC the appearance of having three Hispanic districts, but black voters would dominate the primary for another generation at least.
