On A Lighter Note

I missed out on the Mobbies this year. In an effort to prevent this website from winning an award this time around, The Baltimore Sun limited the categories this year and did not have a “Best Political Website” category. Someone did nominate me for “Wonkiest Blog”, and I managed to finish 10th despite not even being aware I was nominated.

But now, apparently someone has a comedic streak as I have been nominated for “Maryland Conservative of the Year” at Red Maryland. After I stopped laughing and then spending some emails trying to figure out what prankster among my political friends did this, I thought it was a perfect opportunity to stand up for fellow RINOs everywhere. So for all RINOs across the the country, let’s win this thing together! This won;t just me my victory, but a victory for all non-deadenders everywhere!

You can vote here:

http://redmaryland.com/2014/11/vote-2014-red-maryland-awards/

The category is the first one and I am at the bottom of the list.

Cassidy Leads By 15% in LA

Rasmussen Reports has their own view of the race in Louisiana and claims Bill Cassidy up by 15%.

US SENATE – LOUISIANA (Rasmussen)
Bill Cassidy (R) 56%
Mary Landrieu (D-inc) 41%

This poll was done November 16-19 among 1000 likely voters.

Cassidy Leads By 11% in LA

One more poll to add to the Louisiana pile, this time from Vox Populi Polling.

US SENATE – LOUISIANA (VPP)
Bill Cassidy (R) 53%
Mary Landrieu (D-inc) 42%

This poll was done November 16-17 among 761 likely voters.

November 18, 2014

Emanuel Below 40% in Chicago

Okay, I am stretching a little bit now. Here is a new poll for the mayoral race in Chicago showing Rahm Emanuel well below 50% in his bid for another term according to Lake Research Partners and the Chicago Teachers Union.

MAYOR – CHICAGO (LRP)
Rahm Emanuel (inc) 33%
Jesus “Chuy” Garcia 18%
Bob Fioretti 13%

MAYOR – CHICAGO – RUNOFF (LRP)
Rahm Emanuel (inc) 36%
Jesus “Chuy” Garcia 31%

This poll was done November 6-11 among 621 likely voters. In case you are wondering, first round takes place February 24th, 2015 with the runoff happening on April 7th, 2015 if necessary.

November 17, 2014

Cassidy Leads By 21% in LA

It will be rough couple of years for the Landrieu family in Louisiana if a new poll from Gravis Marketing is to be believed.

US SENATE – LOUISIANA (Gravis)
Bill Cassidy (R) 59%
Mary Landrieu (D-inc) 38%

GOVERNOR – LOUISIANA (Gravis)
David Vitter (R) 54%
Mitch Landrieu (D) 36%

David Vitter (R) 43%
Jay Dardenne (R) 29%

The post did not include the actual dates for the poll, but it was done among 643 likely voters. I wish they had done a three-way race between Vitter/Dardenne/Landrieu for the gubernatorial race.

2014 Week 11 NFL Picks

I guess the polling world has gone into hibernation until Thanksgiving as we have only received a single poll for the race in Louisiana since Election Day. Therefore, we will have to stick to NFL picks for now. Before we get to this week’s picks, a quick look at how I did last week.

WEEK 10 WINNERS
Baltimore beat Tennessee
Kansas City beat Buffalo
Detroit beat Miami
Dallas beat Jacksonville
Atlanta beat Tampa Bay
Denver beat Oakland
Arizona beat St. Louis
Seattle beat N.Y. Giants
Green Bay beat Chicago
Philadelphia beat Carolina

WEEK 10 LOSERS
Cincinnati lost to Cleveland
New Orleans lost to San Francisco
Pittsburgh lost to N.Y. Jets

A 10-3 week bring my season record to 92-55, but I am still far back in the pack among the so-called experts at ESPN.

SO-CALLED ESPN EXPERTS
Cris Carter 93-41
KC Joyner 101-46
Eric Allen 99-48
Tom Jackson 99-48
Seth Wickersham 98-49
Ron Jaworksi 95-52
Adam Schefter 93-54
Mark Schlereth 93-54
Keyshawn Johnson 94-53
ME 92-55
Merrill Hoge 90-57
Mike Ditka 89-98
Mike Golic 89-58
Cris Mortensen 85-62

Now without further ado, The Hedgehog Report picks for Week 11 of the NFL season.

2014 WEEK 11 NFL PICKS
Buffalo at Miami
Minnesota at Chicago
Houston at Cleveland
Seattle at Kansas City
Atlanta at Carolina
Cincinnati at New Orleans
Tampa Bay at Washington
Denver at St. Louis
San Francisco at N.Y. Giants
Oakland at San Diego
Detroit at Arizona
Philadelphia at Green Bay
New England at Indianapolis
Pittsburgh at Tennessee

The AFC north is so bunch up that even with a bye week for the Ravens, at the end of the NFL weekend, the Ravens could come out on the other side either in first place in the AFC North based on a tie breaker or in dead last.

AFC NORTH STANDINGS
Cleveland 6-3-0
Cincinnati 5-3-1
Pittsburgh 6-4-0
Baltimore 6-4-0

As I said, no game for me to watch this weekend….

Cassidy Leads By 16% in LA

It has taken longer than I would have thought to see a new poll for the state of Louisiana, but we finally have one from Magellan Strategies and it shows Mary Landrieu is on her way to a spectacular defeat.

US SENATE – LOUISIANA (Magellan)
Bill Cassidy (R) 57%
Mary Landrieu (D-inc) 41%

This poll was done November 12th among 1917 likely voters.

New Thread

Oh, you all wanted to keep talking? Thanks for the emails, I forgot about the 72-hour limit on comments. Here is a new thread while I think of something to say.

DCCC Wants Nancy Pelosi To Stay In Charge

We all got a great chuckle from the emails the DCCC was sending out before the election, but the one they sent this morning might be the best yet:

In 2008, the Democratic Party had 257 seats in the US House in the wake of Barack Obama’s election. After Tuesday’s election, they will have at most 189 seats assuming they win all the outstanding races yet to be officially decided. So yes, as A Republican, I think I will sign the petition for Democrats to “stand With Nancy”….
