Herb, does someone need to tell you the difference between a "majority" and a "plurality?" Are Republicans just too dumb to know the difference? Is that why they thought Romney was going to win in a landslide in 2012 - they just don't understand polls?
Look at the actual poll cited in the article:
August 2014: Registered voters: n=634, MOE +/- 3.9%; Residents: n=760, MOE +/- 3.6%
Do you want to see the Senate Democrats stay in the majority in the U.S. Senate, or do you want to
see the Senate Republicans in the majority?
REGISTERED VOTERS August 2014
Senate Democrats in the majority 41
Senate Republicans in the majority 43
41% say a Democratic senate
43% say a Republican senate
Margin of error is 3.6%
So, it's possible, from the margin of error, the poll actually has a plurality of voters preferring a DEMOCRATIC senate. Similar poll result for the House.Posted on August 3, 2014 - 11:24 PM #

Maybe, but Herb sure is.Posted on August 3, 2014 - 11:34 PM #
It looks like other voters are deserting the Democrats, too:Posted on August 4, 2014 - 10:18 AM #

You guys didn't really read your piece AGAIN, did you? This is more of a case of wishful thinking on the part of the O'Haters, and is not based on any sort of ACTUAL data. From your link:
"...But Troy also noted that expectations among conservatives that Jewish voters will align themselves with Republicans have been raised — and dashed — before.
“I have been around many blocks and I’ve heard it so many times: ‘Now is the point that it’s all going to change.’ And it never happens. It’s like ‘Waiting for Godot.’”
Those doubts have a solid foundation. In presidential elections, approximately three-quarters of Jewish voters give their support to the Democratic candidate.
In 2012, pollster Mark Mellman (who is also a columnist for The Hill), Aaron Strauss and Kenneth Wald published an in-depth report: “Just the Facts: Jewish American Voting Behavior 1972-2008.”
They found that, in presidential elections from 1992 to 2008, the Republican candidate had never got more than 24 percent of the ballots cast by Jewish voters."
And there's really NO reason to think that things will change this time around, either, is there? The only "trend" we see here is that Jewish voters vote Democratic. Period.Posted on August 4, 2014 - 10:38 AM #
