    Pat Roberts In Deep Trouble In Kansas

    It is becoming common practice for the GOP to Fumble at the Goal Line away 1 or 2 Senate seats that most people think there is no way in hell they could lose.

    I think the leading contender for this years Goal Line Fumble will be Pat Thomas. He is despised by the GOP movement conservatives who make up a big portion of the Kansas GOP as a RINO and DC insider.

    Since PPP was one of the best pols in 2012 it is interesting to note the independent candidate (former Democrat) has a clear lead in the polls (The Democrat is trying to get removed from the ballot and the courts will decide this soon).

    It is also important to take notice that Brownback and the Tea Party Kansas legislature are so unpopular that the Dems look like they will win the Statehouse and the Senate seat (imagine that - Tea Party politics gets control of a state and 4 years later a blue wave emerges).

    Should the Independent win the Kansas Senate seat (in GOP hands since 1932 for crying out loud) it could definitely tip the balance of the Senate to the Democrats if Hagen holds her slim lead in NC (another state legislature that turned red and became unpopular in short order - I sense a trend here).

    Dems definitely seem to be on the uptick. GOP still is favored to win the Senate, but Nate Silver only gives them a 53% of winning down from 64% two weeks ago.

    Sam Chow from Princeton who is better then Silver gives the Dems over a 60% chance of keeping the Senate (and remember 50-50 goes to the Dems with Biden as the t-breaking vote).

    The reality is this will go down to the wire.

    I agree that it will go down the wire. Neither party can take any race for granted.

    Psychologically it will be much worse for the GOP if they don't take the Senate than it will be for the Dems if they lose it. They have been talking "wave election" smack for so long it practically is Gospel that they will take the Senate. So if they lose and lose because of "red seats" in "red states" going blue - the psychological fall out will be even more amplified as signalling that the GOP is falling out of favor even in traditional safe territory.

    Which is fine by me because it really sets the stage for an all out GOP civil war for the 2016 nomination. And once that fire is raging it doesn't matter who gets the nomination because the conservative libertarians won't vote for another squish RINO and the moderates won't vote for Cruz or Paul.

    It will be political porn for socialists.

    I agree it will be extremely tough on the GOP if they stay in the minority. It's their last chance to win the Senate for a while. In 2016, only 10 Democrats are up for reelection while 26 Republicans are. If they lose this year, it will be at least another four years until they get another good opportunity, while the Dems will likely only have to wait two years.

    Yep, and not only that a large number of the 26 GOP Senate seats up in 2016 are in blue or swing states.

    If the Dems hold the Senate fort with 51 votes it is not crazy to think the Dems can put together a filibuster proof majority for Hillary in 2016. Now, we would still need the House which isn't likely - but if the GOP screws up the nomination big time it certainly is possible.

    After that demographics take the GOP out of play as majority party until they change a couple of their positions on fundamental issues that are killing them.

    At least until the dems lose the WH in 2 years, which I think they will. It won't be because the reps run anyone good, it'll just be because people are tired of the dems. It's the same thing as what happened in 2008. It wasn't that people loved Obama, they were just really tired of Bush and the republicans.

    The great weight of history is on your side of the argument - no doubt.

    But... we are in a very quickly changing era of politics and demographics. It will matter greatly who the GOP nominates as the GOP has a major segment that simply will not vote for a RINO squish.

    Also, if the Dems win the same states in 2016 as they have won in every election since 1992 the Dems ONLY have to win Ohio or Florida to win the White House.

    Basically, the Dems start the election first and 10 on the GOP 5 yard line with a minute left in the 4th quarter. As long as we don;t turn the ball over we can win big with a TD or kick the easy field goal.

    The GOP is in much deeper water in 2016 than you suspect.

    I do realize that the demographic is constantly changing and if the reps continue to reach out to just white males then they'll find themselves in a lot of trouble in the coming years. I just don't believe it's there quite yet. I think if Obama would have gotten us totally out of the wars and didn't start any new ones, he would have helped the dems in this next election. The problem now is that most people view the dems as just as bloodthirsty and warmongering as the republicans, and I think that will hurt them in the end. The people are tired of the wars.

    Is it Pat Roberts or Pat Thomas? Please make up your mind. It doesn't matter. The GOP definitely has shown the ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
