Rick Noriega Within Striking Distance in Texas
Only a few weeks ago, Fox-TV posted a poll that showed Noriega statistically tied with Cornyn, 47 percent to 43 percent with a 4 percent margin of error.
Fox helpfully explains the polling data:
Nah, you think??? We need to add Texas to the list, for sure.
Any incumbent who polls below 50% is considered potentially vulnerable. That is especially true when a little known challenger is so competitive in an early general election match-up.
Democrats are likely to expand their majority in the Senate this year by picking up several Senate seats currently held by the GOP. Early polling indicates that many states offer potential Democratic gains including: Virginia, New Hamsphire, New Mexico, Colorado, Minnesota, Oregon and Alaska.
Moreover, after the huge turnout of nearly 3 million voters during the Democratic primary last March, one can certainly envision a boatload of new voters coming out to vote in droves and hurling Noriega across the winning line -- whether Hillary or Obama is the Democratic presidential candidate.
YES we CAN!!!
