Scott aka the Blogging Caesar at Election Projection has up his latest projections for House and Senate races, and – all things considered – they don’t look too bad for the GOP. Of course, anything can happen between now and then, so keep that in mind as you view the numbers.
I think Harold Ford, Jr.’s little slip up this weekend about Republican Christian voters is going to have a negative impact on his numbers. I don’t know how much, but even just a few percentage points would make a big difference. I don’t live in TN, but you don’t have to live their to know the inroads he’s been trying to make with conservative voters there, including the conservative Christian vote. If Corker capitalizes on Ford’s slip up, it could mean a significant enough shift to lead him to victory next Tuesday.
Ford Jr.’s attempt to appeal to conservative voters is not exclusive to his campaign, as this New York Times article points out:
ASHEVILLE, N.C., Oct. 28 — In their push to win back control of the House, Democrats have turned to conservative and moderate candidates who fit the profiles of their districts more closely than the profile of the national party.
How perfect. The Democrats are masquerading as something they’re not in order to get elected, right here at Halloween.
