RCP Avg= Real Clear Politics Average of all the polls over about the past week.

South Dakota - Dem. Held Seat
most recent poll:
Daschle (D) 49
Thune (R) 49
poll before that:
Daschle (D) 46
Thune (R) 50


Florida - Dem. Held Seat
RCP Avg- Martinez (R) +0.7

Colorado - Repub. Held Seat
RCP Avg- Coors (R) +1.0

Oklahoma - Repub. Held Seat
RCP Avg- Coburn (R) +3.8

Alaska- Repub. Held Seat
RCP Avg- Knowles (D) +2

North Carolina- Dem. Held Seat
RCP Avg- Burr (R) +2.0

Louisiana- Dem. Held Seat
Vitter (R) +26 *in Louisiana there are multiple democrats running, and if no candidate gets more than 50% of the vote, there will be a run-off b/w the two top vote getters. Vitters is polling around 44%

South Carolina- Dem. Held Seat
DeMint (R) anywhere from +3 to +12

Illinois- Repub. Held Seat
Obama (D) +45

Georgia- Dem. Held Seat
Isakson (R) +16
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If these were the final numbers, the Republican Party would pick up 2 seats, with SD and LA being tossups, BUT both being Dem. held with a good possiblity of at least 1 if not both being won.
if those 2 went our way and we managed to hold on to the AK seat, that would mean a pickup of 5 seats in the US Senate! That would be 56 Republicans and only 43 democrats and 1 independent!
This would make things much, much easier on President Bush in his 2nd term, especially regarding judicial nominations

I have been hearing of some rumblings from Kentucky. Is there a senator there that is dropping like a rock??

Rumors are he's going senile...

All he has to do is win & retire, as IIRC the KY gov is a repub, and would appoint another repub...

Great news. Fantastic. Hopefully it will carry through to Election Day.

If those poll results were the final election results, we would pick up a net gain of 4 anti-ban, pro-RKBA votes in the Senate with LA a tossup. Also we would have at least two hardcore pro-RKBA Senators that would give Larry Craig a run for his money (Coors and Coburn).

Having said that, leads of less than 4 points in these polls mean very little. We need to concentrate on turnout in these states. Gunowners have the numbers to put the pro-RKBA candidates in charge in every state but Illinois. Now it is just a matter of whether or not gunowners have the will to do it.

I know that this won't resonate with everyone here, but for those to whom it does, pray for this country like you've never prayed before. This election is far to important not to.

It's the people like us who still believe that "In God We Trust" really means something.

Been doing my part for Burr.....can't let "Irksome" Bowles in. Burr has gone from more than 10 pts down to a slim lead....I feel good about it. The ads are tying Irksome to Clinton.

Knowles isn't that anti-gun but Murkowski is a good senator.

Her daddy made a good choice.

We stand to gain either way. SC and LA are going pro-gun.

Illinois will stay anti-assault weapon and AK will stay pro-assault weapon no matter who wins.

I am independant, but this is good news!

Control of the Senate/House is CRITICAL with the possible shadow of Kerry getting into office. There has to be some checks on Kerry's obvious economy destroying/anti-rights policies he wants to get through if he does for some reason get in.

I am voting against EVERY anti in the elections herei n the PRK. I am leaving at the end of Nov for MN, so I will fire one last shot at the socialists as I go.

DeMint is very pro-gun. i've got several letters from him regarding the AWB as a Representative.

here is a quote from one of his debates:


Jim DeMint
"i didn't support the AWB and I won't support any gun ban, as they infringe on our 2nd ammendment rights and have been proven ineffective. In fact, in these times of terrorism I would like for my neighbors and those around me to be lawfully armed and able to defend themselves"

No doubt that DeMint is pro-gun - he gets an A grade from GOA and not many Senators make that grade. However, I haven't heard him suggest repealing the 1934 NFA (among other gun laws) on the campaign trail like Coors and I believe Coburn is the only Senate candidate or Senator rated A+ by GOA (they called his election the most important election of 2004). In fact, the only other A+ politician I can think of is Ron Paul.

It was in a Rocky Mountain News article that was linked here probably in the last three months.

DeMint, Coors and Coburn would definitely be some nice additions to the Senate!

couldn't agree more, and add Thune to the list! Hopefully he'll be knocking off Daschle!

I'll be voting for Johnny Isakson along with GW on Monday.

I just keeping faith in what Zell Miller said. The Dems can't win the White House without carring a southern state. Gore couldn't even carry his home state in 2000.

I am very optimistic across the board.
Link Posted: 10/26/2004 4:24:45 AM EST
It is probably unrealistic to expect to win all six; but I really don't see why we couldn't. All of those races are in gun-friendly states. There is a clear difference in candidates and all of our guys are polling equal or slightly ahead.
