The polls weren’t great this past election season. If they were more accurate, tonight’s special election in Georgia would not be for control of the senate, Democrats would already have it.
Donald Trump will no longer be the President of the United States come mid-January. His presence, though, will hang over the party long before he’s gone, undermining almost any candidate who wants to run as a Republican.
Some Democrats, liberals, and progressives are freaking out because they didn’t win special elections in heavily Republican districts that they were supposed to lose. There are two statistics that drive this point home and serve as a reminder that the freak out is based more on emotions than political reality.
The zeal among some Democrats, liberals, and progressives for the Georgia House special election were always emotional. Some are still dealing with an Election Night 2016 hangover and were desperate for a win, but the win that they should be looking for is to defeat Trump on healthcare, not a victory that would net them 1/435th of the House.
Donald Trump gave Karen Handel such a terrible endorsement that he didn't leave enough room in his tweet to include her full name. The babbling president whined about Democrats, lied about Obamacare, then had no room to endorse Handel in the Georgia special House election.
Ossoff is focusing not just on the corruption that continues to consume the White House, but the disastrous Republican policy agenda that will bury the middle class.
Ossoff now leads his Republican candidate by seven points as Republican and Independent voters flock to his campaign.
The Democrat's lead is slim, but it appears to be somewhat durable and is even showing signs that he is gaining support as the June 20 election approaches.
The increasingly explosive Russia scandal isn't just dragging the president down – he's taking the entire GOP with him.
An analysis of the voter file from the jungle primary in the Georgia House special election showed that Democrat Jon Ossoff has attracted a key level of Republican support in the district.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has issued a statement clarifying his previous remarks and throwing his full support behind Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff in the Georgia US House runoff election.
Georgia Republicans are so afraid that they are going to lose to Jon Ossoff in June that they are trying to suppress the Democratic vote by not allowing newly registered voters to vote in the runoff.
If this is the GOP's secret weapon in keeping control of the hotly contested seat, then they're in big trouble.
The night is young and there is a long way to go, but Jon Ossoff appears to be performing well where it counts – at least for now.
Election officials are hoping to keep two polling places open later than the 7 PM closing time after computer errors and late poll workers caused some voting problems in Georgia's US House special election.
"Democrat Jon Ossoff would be a disaster in Congress. VERY weak on crime and illegal immigration, bad for jobs and wants higher taxes. Say NO"
According to a recent poll, Ossoff's support is just over 45 percent – not far from the 50 percent he needs to avoid a June run-off.
Being a Democratic candidate in Georgia isn't always easy, particularly in the district he is hoping to represent, but Ossoff is doing it right.
Democrats will win elections when they go to all parts of the country and explain that their policies are better for average Americans.
During an interview on MSNBC, the Democratic candidate in the House special election in Georgia, Jon Ossoff, showed exactly why Democrats are so excited and Republicans are deeply concerned about defeat next week.
