"...to show the people that the GOP will pass common sense legislation..." I hope and pray that's what they do because it's the correct way to do it!
My one hope is that we take a common sense approach to governing and explain the principles behind what we do. Anything that smacks of revenge against Obama will only mean a two year run of leadership. Clearly, we have to stand for principles but look to compromise when the greater good is apparent. No party has a monopoly on good ideas. If we show where our principles lay and how they support what we do, the American people will respond; the next election needs to be about how well the Republicans did, not about how bad the Democrats are.
The only way the black community will hear you is if you tell them. I don't know the number of blacks that consistently read Townhall and would be pleasantly surprised if it were very many. If you want your statement to be heard, say it out loud when and where the audience will hear you. A thoughtful, well-reasoned argument can be made and will be heard. Then the action is on them.

I was going to post, but you summed up my thoughts exactly. Why we continue to give this man a forum is beyond me!
"their polling efforts are designed to breed overconfidence in the Republicans and hope for that leads to the "they are a shooin, so I don't need to go vote" attitude." That's my fear as well...
Two things to consider. 1) All the polling is worthless unless folks show up and VOTE. We should be very careful of becoming complacent and having a repeat of the "sure win" from 2012 become the defeat of 2014. Encourage EVERYBODY you know to vote! 2) I'm beginning to wonder if Obama doesn't WANT republicans to win. If they do he'll be even more encouraged to go around Congress and we know that Republican have already taken impeachment off the table. What does he have to lose? Some of the statements he's made either show him to be willing for that to happen or someone who has lost touch with reality.

Cruz is DOA. While I like his conservative principles (for the most part), he comes across as too inflexible and doesn't seem to understand the word compromise. The independents will flee to the Dems again. I'm not convinced he's even viable as a VP. I like Jindal and I like Carson. I think that pair could speak volumes to the independents who are absolutely necessary for whatever the winning ticket might be.
Took Uber last night in DC. Have been a user of the service since it first started here. I still occasionally take a taxi, but Uber is my first preference. The cars are clean, the drivers courteous, and prices are reasonable. My wife and I shuttled our wedding party last year using Uber so we are mainstay customers.
I think I read this right and if I did it's a Republican loss by 5000+ votes. I know that Republicans typically show up more on election day than do Democrats, but based upon the numbers quoted people HAVE to show up and vote or Braley wins. If you have friends or family in Iowa urge them to go to the polls!!!

Only if people show up and VOTE. If they, don't they get the government they deserve.
