Thomas Mills details the approaching tsunami through recent polling of individual races for General Assembly seats, where Republican incumbents -- even in gerrymandered districts thought to be safe for Republicans -- are experiencing dissatisfaction and underwater polling numbers. Mills says that their "fix" for their own dismal lack of popularity is to begin early the usual deluge of negative mail, mainly saying Obamacare as often as possible and trying to tie their Democratic challengers to the Washington of Barack.
Ain't working. Their "favorability" rankings are actually worse than Obama's in state polling.
We've braced ourselves to see the nastiness that incumbent Republican House member Jonathan Jordan has in store for challenger Sue Counts. Mills doesn't mention how Jordan is polling, but we happen to know that it ain't good news for him.
