Gallup survey finds Democrats losing ground since 2008

Gallup has a new survey out which shows that, in terms of partisan affiliation, the number of "solid" Democrats states is down by half since they conducted a similar survey in 2008.  The same survey also showed the number of "competitive" states almost doubling.

They point out that every state (including the District of Columbia) now has fewer people identifying themselves as Democrats, or even independents who "lean" Democrat.  Interestingly, the greatest percentages of declines came in Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine and Hawaii.  Hawaii aside, those others represent the north-eastern states where Republicans had been becoming a rare species.

In terms of numbers, "solid" Democrats states went from 30 in 2008 down to 14 today, while competitive states went from 10 up to 18.

MilesTones: LEAKED! Advance Headlines Ignite Alarm!

These advance newspaper headlines and stories that were to be hidden from Americans until the precise moment of release, have just been leaked out to select news providers.  Richard Lee, a friend from Spokane, Washington, alerted MilesTones as soon as he was made aware of these stories being set in type. We are still trying to track down the primary source of the leaks:

New census numbers look bad for Obama and Democrats

On Tuesday the US Census will issue its 2010 report, and the result will be more bad news for Obama and the Democrats.

In short, the national headcount will show population shifts away from "blue" states, and to "red" states - a shift that will impact the apportionment of the 435 members to the US House of Representatives as well as members of the Electoral College.

As for the 2012 presidential race, this will result in a net shift of at least six electoral votes to states the habitually vote Republican in presidential elections, essentially the equivalent of adding another small state to the GOP column.  This comes on top of an almost identical shift in population (and political power) as a result of the 2000 census. 

In order to be elected President, a candidate must win 270 out of 537 electoral votes.

New poll: More Americans consider themselves Republicans for first time ever

For the first time ever, a Rasmussen public opinion poll shows more Americans self-identifying themselves as Republicans as opposed to Democrats or independents.

The survey shows 36% of adults identifying themselves as Republicans, with 35% calling themselves Democrats, and 29% independents.  What makes this numbers even more interesting is that the poll applies to "all Americans", not just "registered voters", or "likely voters", (which are almost always more Republican in their responses that the general public).

After the 2008 presidential elections, Democrats had an almost 8% advantage over Republicans in the same poll, which points to a net swing of 9% since Obama became President.

The poll also notes that the number of self-identified Democrats is only just above the lowest level ever recorded.

The biggest reason for this result would seem to be that voters continue to trust Republicans more on key issues than Democrats...but even this has a lot to do with just a plain, old-fashioned rejection of Obama and the Congressional Democrats agenda of the past two years.

Pelosi Keeps Power! Startling Radio Broadcast Breaks Story Media Tried To Hide!

Nancy Pelosi was just voted in as the Demorcrat Minority House Leader by a 150-43 vote, which shows a majority of Dems voting FOR her to stay in power contrary to the previous Dem statements regurgitated onto the public in an attempt to make themselves appear more moderate BEFORE the November 2nd elections. That burning smell wafting by [is] the repetitive act of pants-on-fire emanating from the usual location…...hint….left of here.

So what do good church people do with a winning lottery ticket purchased at a [Detroit] Porn Shop worth $129.million? What anyone with a sense of propriety would do since a Christian can't even give the appearance of evil--have someone else pick up the winnings for you. Now hold on there....thou shalt not judge--you know that! Besides, according to news reports, they plan to donate some of the winnings to the church.. the High Court just announced it is considering banning Christian Foster Parents but same-sex "gay" couples are still OK so breath easier...more Blame Duck sessions in The Capitol about to begin...and recent headlines declare: "Catholic Church Needs Exorcists," a ritual that should be in great demand in...ahh never mind!

Political Zingers for Election Day--VOTE CAREFULLY!

Political Zingers For Election Day-VOTE CAREFULLY!

Is Christine O’Donnell REALLY dumb as Dems trumpet?  Did Meg Whitman knowingly hire and keep an illegal on her payroll? And of special interest to residents of the California Bay Area, in particular, Contra Costa County—what are the newspapers hiding?
     
During a political debate with Christine O’Donnell running for the Delaware congressional seat, the question came up from her opponent regarding the Separation of Church and State. Ms. O’Donnell said that the idea of Separation of Church and State was not in the constitution, which prompted cackles,  werewolf howls and clucking from the mainly democrat attendance.  The Dem newspapers crowed that Ms. O’Donnell was a dumbbell who did not know her history or the constitution.  WRONG!
     
Ms. O’Donnell is absolutely right. The First Amendment erroneously referred to, simply addressed the states: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free excercise thereof.”  This protects all from having the government establish and mandate which church is THE church. It goes on to declare that the government could not prohibit the free excercise thereof (of freely carrying out your religious practices). PERIOD.

Sixth Grader's Field Trip to Mosque to Bow Down to Allah!--Two Incredible Videos

Americans for Peace and Tolerance released a video showing 6th graders from Wellesley, MA as they rise from prostrating themselves alongside Muslim men in a prayer to Allah while on a public school field trip to the largest mosque in the Northeast. Teachers did not intervene. Parents had not been told. And where was the ACLU?  Not a peep from them. It is only Christianity that they fear and work to make illegal.  You will see a video of this outrage along with another video of my interview on this for the national radio program, Issues in Education.

Dems Hide Communist Sponsorship of D.C. March Yesterday

Public deception was again front and center when a March on Washington took place yesterday, Saturday, October 2, 2010. Spuriously billed as “A March For Unity-One Nation Working Together,” the event purported to be a march by Progressives (another name for Democrats but actually meaning Socialists) with the stated purpose, “To stand together demanding that Congress reject the Republican right-wing obstruction and put the creation of jobs and the plight of the jobless on the front burner.”  I waited for over 24 hours before filing this story to see what media coverage there would be, and IF they told the truth about this demonstration in our Capitol. They didn’t.
