Competitive races:

My sister has told me about The Palmer Report and his spot on analysis. I don't know anything about him but she says he's excellent and is very accurate regarding which races are close and which races we have a chance to win.

I'm going to be sending an email to my friends regarding which candidates have a chance of winning. They will then either donate financially, phone bank, send cards, etc. (they help in ways in which they can).

I'd be very appreciative to receive feedback from those of you who have been keeping a close eye on the races. I have my list but I haven't been able to keep it updated because I'm working six days a week.

What I'd love is a link with the races: Senate, House, Governors and the current polling.

I don't mean to seem snarky but I'm not looking for wish lists. Obviously I'd love for Beto to beat Abbott but I don't know if it's competitive. If it's not, then IMHO, the energy could best be spent elsewhere.


Special Note to NKPolitic - No offense but your information for the 2020 election was not only inaccurate but was also presented by you in ways proclaiming that various races (for Dems) were practically definite wins. I posted to you responding to some of your claims. You never responded back to me. PLEASE DON'T RESPOND TO THIS POST. Unfortunately, you have no credibility with me. I may be off base but it's how I feel and I'd appreciate you honoring my wishes.

Thank you to my fellow DU'ers...

1. I look at the polling from RealClearPolitics. It has a number of polls, some bad, some fine,

and an aggregation of them. They include Rasmussen which tends to skew the aggregate right, but it's still a valuable compilation.

And it covers most races in one site.

6. Very welcome!

BUT, in all my readings of these polls, I do have the music from Jaws in the back of my mind, representing the furious women who I believe will upend things this November.

2. Also the Cook Political Report

I look at the Cook Political Report and RealClearPolitics to identify the toss-up races, and I make my donation decisions based on that.
