Today is primary day. YAY!
Wow, things got a little busy on here last night. I guess I should have checked things when I got home instead of going right to sleep….
Damn, Flash Forward is being canceled. I am already losing Lost and 24 at the end of this TV season, although to be perfectly honest, those shows have gotten to be so tedious by this point that I am only watching them because I want to see the end after putting so much effort into both series from the beginning, not because they have actually been that great this year….
We have the leading Democratic candidate for the US Senate in Connecticut, who is leading by upwards of 20% in some polls, decide it was a good idea to fabricate his military history. He’s ahead by 20%! Why on earth does he even have to lie?!
The infamous Revered Jeremiah Wright is not too happy with Barack Obama. I chuckled at this line from the article.
“I am ‘radioactive,’ Sir. When Obama threw me under the bus, he threw me under the bus literally!” he wrote.
Well actually he did not LITERALLY throw him under the bus, but whatever….
As we head into primary day in multiple states, we have one final poll from Magellan Strategies for the Republican primary in Kentucky showing that it is pretty clear Rand Paul is going to be the Republican nominee for the US Senate, despite what Mitch McConnell wants.
US SENATE – KENTUCKY – GOP PRIMARY (Magellan)
Rand Paul 55%
Trey Grayson 30%
This poll was done May 16th among 809 likely voters. Looking beyond primary day, there was an internal poll released by Democratic nominee for the US Senate in Illinois from Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research claiming he is tied with Republican Mark Kirk.
US SENATE – ILLINOIS (Greenberg)
Mark Kirk (R) 44%
Alexi Giannoulias 44%
This poll was done May 11-13 among 600 likely voters. In California, a new poll from some group called M4 Strategies claims Meg Whitman is dominating the Republican primary for Governor.
GOVERNOR – CALIFORNIA – GOP PRIMARY (M4 Strategies)
Meg Whitman 49%
Steve Poizner 31%
This poll was done May 12-16 among 600 “high propensity” voters.
That is all for me for now as I will be away from the computer until later this afternoon. I am sure Scott Rasmussen will release some polls later today, but other than that, I know of nothing coming out today. Of course, that probably means there will be eight or nine polls out before I can even get back to a computer…that is the way things seem to work….
And never fear, there will be posts-a-plenty later tonight when the polls start closing.
