Looks like libs know how to use a computer
it's hard too when Giants blowing it this badly :(
Or possibly the left slant of the site is driving off the moderates. After awhile, you just throw up your hands and turn to news elsewhere.
In the end Lamont and Rell will probably win although DeSTefano would be the better Governor.
I've met many moderates and they seem to believe that Rell and Lamont are both moderates. I also think Courtney will win by 10+ points over Simmons, that Farrell will beat Shays by 5 points, and that Johnson v. Murphy will be decided by 1% one way or the other.
Dave, I hope you're right, but wonder what color the sky is in your world.
Why are Lamont supporters like Bigdavefromqueens so reluctant to call Lamont a Liberal? He is a self professed liberal, and admitted to being so on 'This Week' with George Stephanopoulos. Some one who is the darling of the likes of Moveon.org and Dailykos can never be considered a "moderate".

Boy, you sure have proven how far left crazy Kos is, supporting those guys.
So by the current results here, JDS is polling around 78%. Lamont is also polling at about 78%. Yet in various polls, JDS is getting low to mid 30s, and Lamont low to mid 40s. I am sure the actual results will be much closer to the polls than this online poll.The fact that an online voluntary poll isn't accurate is of course nothing new, but this poll does show how far from the mainstream the readers of this blog are, and this blog has readers of all stripes.
Casey is hardly a liberal, his stance on abortion would hardly make him a champion in his party. There's a difference between 'progressive' and 'liberal' but there just isn't enough debate out there to get the facts straight. I think the goal here is to recruit 'people-powered' candidates over the traditional american liberalism. Webb, Casey, Tester are all from moderate states (PA having not elected a D Senator in a while now) so I doubt a traditional liberal could win any of these seats.
This poll reveals a lot about this blog. What it says about the November Election? Nothing. Interesting nevertheless.
It actually reveals more about MLN, which linked to the poll. I don't think we're quite this liberal.
Nice to see the loonies invading our poll.
