"You're what's wrong with America, McConnell. You coast through life, you do as little as possible, and you leech off of decent, hardworking people like me. If you lived in any other country in the world, you'd have starved to death long ago"

It's ok, he'll be replaced by the challengers to Begich, Pryor, Udall, Udall, Landrieu, Hagan, Franken, Warner and Shaheen.  Reed, Merkley and Durbin will be tougher, but not out of reach.  Expect 2014 Republican campaigns to be 12 months of nonstop 0bamacare.

Even if we're talking about a liberal pollster, to even get close to a GOP Senate leader in Kentucky is huge. The GOP will not be picking up any new Senate seats in 2014, and if the hiccups in Obamacare can get smoothed out over the next 2 years might even get to a filibuster-proof 60 seat majority in 2016. Combined with taking back the House and a Democrat president (Hillary or not, doesn't really matter) the USA might finally get to pass a proper budget, start doing some long-term planning, and have a sane & responsible government.

Ahahhahahah, no.

I'm a die-hard Democrat who would love nothing better to see Mitch McConnell lose.  But a poll that's over a year out?  Before McConnell has spent dime one?  Puhlease.

McConnell is not a political fool.  He understands the system, how it works, and how to get re-elected.  I can't imagine him getting beat by a Democrat next year without a political sea change in America between now and then.

For McConnell, the threat is in the primary, not the general - no number of MoveOn polls are going to change that.

Yeah, I really wasn't being snarky in my earlier comment.  He'll bring home the proverbial bacon for Kentucky, again, and biatch and moan about spending and waste.  And it will work.  Again.

AfP have already started non stop commercials on how evil Hagan is. If I weren't going to vote for her already, I'd spite vote for her because of those assholes running election ads FOURTEEN FARKING MONTHS BEFORE THE 2014 ELECTION.

I'm enjoying the TV commercials his PAC bought that try to conflate the candidacy of Alison Lundergan Grimes with the "dangers" and "failures" of Obamacare.

A lot of people would have said the same thing about Lugar in Indiana in 2012. The man was a political institution in and of himself, and he got teabagged. A Democrat now holds what was a safe Republican seat.

I think the same thing will happen with McConnell. Even if he wins his primary fight, it will be such a bitter fight he will go into the general election seriously damaged.

FTFY. I'll let you dream, because the naysayers don't believe how possible this is. It might not be in full swing in 2014 but the crazy won't stop. Slowly, we'll continue to go more and more blue; old racist assholes are dying and young minds are becoming voter-eligible.

Kentucky does have a Democratic governor, and is one of the few states that implemented an ACA exchange instead of just throwing a tantrum and making the feds do it.  Their necks may be red, but there politics aren't quite as red as you might think.
 
2013-11-12 11:51:36 AM
True, Kentucky created their own exchange and it is actually working quite well.  Credit goes to the dem governor there.

Kentucky is very red and mcconnell is entrenched and is the minority leader and is relatively scandal-free for a politician.  He will be tough to unseat.  Plus, there are plenty of non-website-related issues with 0bamacare he can hammer on, like the poorly-vetted navigators.

Yeah, by November 2014, Grimes campaigning on "McConnell wants to kill kynect" will probably be a pretty good platform, Kentucky's had by all accounts a great Obamacare rollout - as long as they've explained it to their citizens as anything but Obamacare, it's been quite popular.

I doubt McConnell will have any trouble with his primary challenger.  Sadly.
 
2013-11-12 12:13:55 PM
Here's my question.

Let's say McConnell loses his primary. So he gets replaced with a tea party derper.

This is Kentucky we're talking about - isn't the Tea Party guy going to win? So instead of McConnell, who for instance doesn't want to shut the government down, we get another crazy-ass teabagger in the senate. How is this good?

Kentucky is going full-speed ahead on Obamacare.  How many people are going to be covered by this by election day and will be willing to vote for a guy that will repeal it?  All you need is a social conservative Democrat. McConnell loyalists might be pretty pissed.

I make no predictions but holy shiat it would be funny.
