Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Democrats have made a national cause of turning Texas blue, even though the chances that Wendy Davis will win the governor?s race this fall remain small ? and the likelihood that Texas will be a true battleground any time before 2028 probably even smaller. Georgia, on the other hand, is happening now. Democrats here don?t have to wait for the demographic projections to come true.

"Georgia's next in line as a national battleground state," Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jason Carter -- the grandson of former President Jimmy Carter -- said during a break at a campaign stop last week. "If you look at sheer numbers, people can dispute whether it's red or blue, but everybody knows where it's headed."

Frankly the lady running in Georgia seems like a champ and her opponent a good businessman and nothing else.

The red/blue label is deceptive. Kentucky's state house has firmly been under democratic control for nearly a century, yet the state as a whole is pretty conservative and votes red in national election.

Only if they choke her.

Lee take a look at Nunn's wikipedia page and then take a look at her opponents.

Georgia was solidly red for presidential elections (save carter) but blue in statewide races and generally sent blue dog dems to Congress. Most voters even in the rural areas considered themselves dems. But I saw this evolve over the past 25 years and the change was completed in 2002 when Sonny Perdue was elected the first Republican governor since reconstruction. Except for some lib enclaves in Atlanta, Georgia is a non-lib state and will be for a very long time. Michelle Nunn doesn't stand much of a chance. But I gotta wonder what her daddy thinks of our president.

@ JUSTANOVERSIGHT

Take a look at the polls.

Nunn is going to win.......possibly by double figures.

Who cares?

There isn't any difference between them anyway.

Tor...it's only happening in your wet dreams. Georgia is not sending a lib to the Senate. NFW.

Btw, all the polls had Kingston winning the GOP nomination.

Georgia has more illegal immigrants than Texas. The game plan of the Democratic Party elites is to make America Hispanic and thus by default give themselves more power and give America less prosperity. The Democratic Party seems to prefer overwhelming poverty for the sheep (just like the GOP) while the Party elites are handed policy making positions and accompanying power that allows them to screw average long time citizens and benefit cronies.

I'd like to see both Parties kicked out of power and replaced by an Occupy and TP movement, neither of which has any respect for big business whxres that own us.

"Can Democrats Turn Georgia Blue?"

Shut up! You are letting the cat out of the bag.
They have to turn Georgia brown first and that means placing the swarm of 'undocumented' people here against our laws but not illegal in Georgia first.

One thing's for sure, the post-runoff polling will first feature several right-wing pollsters like Rasmussen or Gravis Marketing, and they'll show Perdue with a comfortable lead. Then Quinnipiac will come along about a week later showing a close race. The aggregate of those polls will show Perdue with a lead outside of the margin of error, and the narrative will be, "This is Perdue's race to win."

"Georgia has more illegal immigrants than Texas."

As I understand, the only state with more illegal immigrants than Texas is California. But if you've got a trustworthy citation that disproves that, I'm willing to read it.

Good. The faster we can turn all states blue, the faster we can give up on America and move on to the "new" normal. 25% of the country working for the remaining 75%. DANNI's wet dream.

"Georgia is not sending a lib to the Senate."

Uhuh and how would you describe the elder Nunn?

#15 | Posted by Tor at 2014-07-24 12:15 PM | Reply | Flag:

#15...I wouldn't describe Sam Nunn as a lib. Besides, he announced his retirement in '96. He saw the change in the dems and in Georgia so he dipped.

From what I gather she's very much her father's daughter.
