Man, I am so glad I got rid of cable a few years ago and live in a state that's guaranteed to go GOP.

/maybe not so glad about that last part

AS?

That's not one of the 57?

The TV ads I can live with, because much of what I watch is DVR'd. It's the f*cking robocalls that annoy me.

It's good to not live in a swing state
 
2012-05-04 11:41:11 AM  
We already get the TV ads several times every night here in MI. They are targeting the hell out of the Wheel of Fortune demographic.

Can't believe TN is weak GOP.

/although I imagine if an earthquake swallowed Memphis and Nashville, we'd instantly go the darkest shade of red imaginable
 
2012-05-04 11:57:13 AM  
I hereby vow I will not watch one minute of campaign ads this years. Show goes off the second any come on.

Of course, I only turn on the TV to watch "Sons of Guns" and the survival shows, and I go to the fridge for beer reloads during the commercials, anyway.

Smells like AS.
 
2012-05-04 12:57:41 PM  
That's a pretty solid list of states that it seems to suck to live in to begin with.

Came here to say this. I don't even know why I have a land line anymore. The only calls I ever get are during election season. My friends know enough to call my cell.

Seems more incredible that the home of Liberty University and Regent University is classed "Weak Dem".

/FL, OH, and NC seem likely to bear the brunt
//I still think the Obama campaign should try and pry loose TX

Would the submitter be so kind as to post which state they meant by "AS" so the headline can be fixed. I'm assuming you mean "Alaska" (AK), but I'd like confirmation.

Going by the map, Alaska isn't even CLOSE to a swing. They probably meant Arizona.
 
2012-05-04 02:12:08 PM  
There is no way I'm going to see a state TV ad this year.
 
2012-05-04 02:13:54 PM  
Subby here, it was supposed to be AR- Arkansas. Yes I am an idiot.

It's okay. No harm, no foul. Fixed.

I'd bet PA will get hit hard too.
 
2012-05-04 02:44:14 PM  
Step 1: Get rid of cable
Step 2: Get Netflix and/or Amazon Prime

No commercials for you!

Screw that, he's owes everyone a beer. That's what Drew made me do the 800+ times I screwed up a headline.

MO went for McCain in '08, so I can't see it being in play this year. However, we are going to be flooded with ads against McCaskill.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: It's good to not live in a swing state


Most of those aren't swing states. If the best the SuperPACs can do for the presidential race is shore up support for the GOP in Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Tennessee, and West Virginia then that's, well...remarkable.
 
2012-05-04 02:46:20 PM  
You should have posted the second list--there are several Clinton states that will never go for Obama. The fixed list is:
Colorado (9)
Florida (29)
Missouri (10)
Nevada (6)
N. Carolina (15)
Ohio (18)
Virginia (13)

That's good for me, since no one will bother campaigning in my state. On the other hand, I'm still in Arkansas.

When was Tennessee put in play?
 
2012-05-04 02:47:02 PM  
How is NC not in this?

Seriously though CU is not the worst decision the Supreme Court made in the history of this country.

The third. The other two would be Dred Scott and Bush v Gore.
 
2012-05-04 02:47:26 PM  
Whatever. It's not like election campaigns don't already suck for the rare Kentuckians who walk upright and have opposable thumbs.
 
2012-05-04 02:49:06 PM  
Montana is arguably more in play than TN is. Rasmussen released a poll earlier this week that had Romney only up by 7.
 
2012-05-04 02:49:33 PM  

SilentStrider: I'd bet PA will get hit hard too.


I was thinking the same thing. Ugh.
 
2012-05-04 02:51:16 PM  
In Missouri here. I got send a bumper sticker for Gov. Jay Nixon. I don't hear much about what he does, but I'm sure if we had a Republican governor, we'd be in a bad a state as Wisconsin, Ohio, and Florida, with unchecked Derp.
 
2012-05-04 02:52:17 PM  
Louisiana wat.

Since when are we up for grabs? Fffffffff
 
2012-05-04 02:52:30 PM  
That's another great thing about living in Massachusetts... The GOP knows they don't even have a chance, so they don't waste their time placing ads here. Though, I'm sure the Senatorial and 9th district races are going to result in plenty of bullshiat on the TV.

If you live in AR, CO, FL, KY, LA, MO, NV, OH, TN or WV, it will suck to be you this fall (and summer, and spring and winter). No need to explain further, subby

It will be interesting to see how the GOP Supa PAC money shakes out in the end. How much will go to hold red states versus how much spent to make swing states more competitive,

"Will they attack more than they'll defend?" is my question.

Pretty sure already the amount of money spent in total will be a nauseatingly large number.
 
2012-05-04 02:54:19 PM  
How the heck is TX considered "weak GOP" ?

What scares me is that the Hulu "Ad Tailor" has been asking me questions about the election lately. I try to choose the answer that makes me seem as apolitical as possible. I'm hoping that makes me less desirable to political advertisers.

M-G: MO went for McCain in '08, so I can't see it being in play this year. However, we are going to be flooded with ads against McCaskill.


It took a couple of weeks of recounting for McCain to win Missouri, so I CAN see it being in play to a limited extent this year.

/although it wound up being a non-issue anyway, since Obama would have gotten more than twice as many electoral votes as McCain with or without that state
//they were done with the recount before Thanksgiving
 
2012-05-04 03:00:44 PM  
They're wasting their money in West Virginia. All they need to do is send out a flyer with a cartoon Obama taking a gun from a white man.

Actually, they probably don't even need to do that.
 
2012-05-04 03:00:51 PM  
I live in Florida, but I don't watch tv or listen to the radio, so no problem for me.
 
2012-05-04 03:02:35 PM  
Such are the charms of our antiquated electoral college.

Brown people, young people and women live there as well as white, scared, stupid racist old men.

So new poll out has Obama up 7 pts in VA.

If Obama holds VA, Rmoney has to sweep PA, OH, and FL to win.
 
2012-05-04 03:03:35 PM  
Trying to predict what the GOP ads will be like this year. Just.... imagine......
