Awesome, no we can argue about impossible hypothetical races. Well played, subby.

23 to 22 percent? 55 percent undecided or 77 percent wouldn't vote for the twitter handle?

Is it John Ashcroft?

If I was interested, then I probably would have a strong opinion on this hypothetical race.

Generic candidates often poll better than specific candidates; they have fewer known flaws.  Remember how well Generic Republican was polling in 2011.   I'll withhold judgement on what this means for the race until after there is a real, flesh and blood challenger.

I think Generic Republican would have done a better job at whatever it was that was supposed to have gone wrong in Benghazi.  Undoubtedly.

Is it Saxby Chambliss? I'd vote for just about anything, much less anyone, over Chambliss...

/can metro Atlanta secede from the rest of Georgia yet?

Gene Eric Republican has been crushing every other candidate the Republicans name since the middle of the second Bush administration.  Why don't they give him a chance?

AiryAnne: 23 to 22 percent? 55 percent undecided or 77 percent wouldn't vote for the twitter handle?


So?  55 percent undecided or 78 percent wouldn't vote for Amash.

The point is, this guy's already a congressman, and it's ridiculous that there's even a comparison between him and a Twitter handle.  Much less that he's losing, even slightly.

@lolgop is a decent follow, if anyone cares.

"A sitting U.S. congressman is trailing an anonymous Twitter handle in a hypothetical race for a Senate seat"

As an older adult who doesn't twit and doesn't even bother with a Facebook account, I don't even know what most of that headline means.
