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.
All for naught if we don;t show up to vote and repeat the debacle of the 2012 Presidential election...
Polling is meaningless. Voters have to SHOW UP and vote, unlike 2012. If they're lazy and expect a result but don't vote for it, we gat what we deserve....
"Voting for Greg Orman or staying home is the single most self-destructive action a conservative, a moderate, or any sort of genuine "independent" could make in my lifetime. Speaking other than this truth is similarly self-destructive. " AMEN!!
Staying at home is NOT a stand; it's capitulation. In the end voting is the ONLY way we can change what we don't like and have our voices heard. Better the devil that you can partially agree with than the one that is so counter you values....
And we had better show up at the polls if we want positive changes to happen....
The "RINOs" you mention probably vote more the way you would if you really examined their record. But stay away and not vote and you get the representation you deserve....
