New Polls Show Non-DCCC Districts Are Falling To Democratic Challengers


Last week, when MoveOn and PPP released their much buzzed about polls showing how Democrats could pick up many seats, the first thing I noticed was that these were all the Steve Israel seats they had polled. I spoke with them and asked them to poll some of the districts that the DCCC studiously ignores, districts we've been covering here at DWT and where Blue America has some great candidates. This morning MoveOn and PPP are releasing new polling data for some of those districts.

Outstanding, at top Blue America races where Lee Rogers is ahead of Buck McKeon (CA-25), Paul Clements is ahead of Fred Upton (MI-06) and Jason Ritchie is ahead of Dave Reichert (WA-08). In other districts, like FL-27, where Steve Israel and Debbie Wasserman Schultz have actively discouraged Democratic opponents, there is a clear indication that if Pelosi manned up and fired Israel and cleaned out the nest of self serving incompetents who run the DCCC, the Democrats would win back the House hands down in 2014. In many of the districts where there are no Democrats-- thanks to Israel's agenda-- voters see no alternative to the GOP incumbent but there is a clear indication that a Democrat could campaign and win. In FL-27 where Wasserman Schultz has been protecting Ileana Ros-Lehtinen for years, if an election were held today, an unnamed Democrat would beat her 47-45%. If Wasserman Schultz and Israel were to disappear and a real Democrat campaigned… well, look:

Nancy Pelosi would be crazy to look at this data and keep Steve Israel running the DCCC. If he stays on as chairman, there is NO CHANCE the Democrats will take back the House. If he is replaced by a real fighter, there is no chance the Democrats WON'T take back the House.

Meanwhile, please consider contributing to Lee Rogers and Paul Clements today. Both are on the path to victory DESPITE the DCCC. If the election were held today, Rogers would beat McKeon 46-43% and when people are made aware that McKeon backed the Tea Party shut down of the government Rogers beats him 51-42%. Los Angeles is THAT close to getting rid of its last Republican congressman! Similarly, in MI-06, if the election were held today, Paul Clements would beat Fred Upton by an astronomical 51-38%. Once voters are made aware that Upton backs the Tea Party shut down, the race is even more of a rout: Upton- 36% and Clements 56%. Steve Israel is protecting his pal Upton. Please help western Michigan get rid of the guy who the L.A. Times says is Congress' biggest enemy of Planet Earth!


Daily Kos did a great job on this chart

Look, all due respect israel is where he is because Pelosi WANTS him to be there. Any chance of by-passing wasserman-schultz and recruiting a candidate for FL 27 on your own?

Not crazy, just doing her mole job.

Anyone who doubts that she's a republican mole, just look at the way she protected Bush from impeachment. The support she gave Rahm Emmanuel and Steve Israel are fully understandable in that light.

Pelosi is no friend of liberals.

Why does Obama get a free ride while Pelosi is receiving the stink-eye? Des no one remember that Obama just accepted the Ryan Budget the very same budget that Obama ran against in 2012?

He's not getting a free ride from me. I think he's a terrible president.

He looks tolerable only in comparison to the republicans (which is a very low standard to meet).

I have said many times that the only reason for the existence of the republican party is to make the otherwise-horrendous Democrats appear acceptable. There are no decent political parties in the US.
