Curious.....what was the feeling here at DU like two weeks before the 2010 election?

I don't remember. We're the polls right in their prediction?

Gardner Opens Up A Big Lead In Key Colorado Senate Race

Rep. Cory Gardner (R-CO) has opened up an seven-point lead over Sen. Mark Udall (D-CO), according to a new Suffolk University poll.

The poll found Gardner leading 46 percent to 39 percent among likely voters. Back in mid-September, Suffolk gave Gardner just a one-point advantage, 43 percent to 42 percent.

It is the biggest lead that Gardner has seen over the last month, during which time early voting has already started; Fox News and Quinnipiac University had shown him up by six points earlier in October.

The Suffolk University poll, conducted Oct. 18 to 21, surveyed 500 likely voters. Its margin of error is 4.4 points.

According to TPM's PollTracker average, Udall currently holds a slight edge, 46.1 percent to 46 percent.



Need a answer about my Thanksgiving cactus, went to the gardening area here, but no one has been

there for awhile, and I need an answer pretty soon. My Thanksgiving cactus doesn't have any buds yet..... I bought it last year around Christmas and it was beautiful, found out it actually IS a Thanksgiving cactus, and should be budding now, but my plant isn't. I did re-pot it in early Summer and it took off with tons of new leaf growth, and now, when it should be budding for Thanksgiving there's no activity. Will it bloom this year?? Thank you.

This guy could tip the senate.......

Auburn, Maine (CNN) -- A quiet lobbying campaign by a low-key man from Maine could determine which party controls the Senate next year.

Sen. Angus King, a Maine Independent, is holding private conversations with Independent Senate candidates to urge them against siding with Democrats or Republicans before the election. In a narrowly divided Senate, this group of Independents could tip the balance of power -- and wield tremendous clout.

"If you announce in advance which party you're going to caucus with, you may as well just sign up and say I'm one or the other," King told CNN.

King recently advised Independent Kansas Senate candidate Greg Orman on how to be most effective running outside the two party system. Another Independent candidate, Larry Pressler of South Dakota, got similar pointers from King, who strongly suggested that Pressler evade questions about which party he he will caucus with -- just as King did when he first ran for the Senate two years ago.

DSCC Stops Running Ads In Kentucky Senate Race

FLORENCE, Ky. (AP) The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has stopped running TV ads in Kentucky's U.S. Senate race, a troublesome sign for Alison Lundergan Grimes in her challenge of Republican leader Mitch McConnell.

In a statement, the committee says it has spent more than $2 million in Kentucky and is still funding get-out-the-vote operations. The committee says it will continue to monitor the race, but it has made no commitment to go back on the air in support of Grimes, who has been pummeled by tens of millions of dollars in attack ads by McConnell and his allies.

The Democratic committee continues to spend heavily in other competitive races in Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia and elsewhere as it tries to prevent Republicans from winning a Senate majority.
