    There have been multiple polls showing Walker trailing Warnock by at or near double digits. And Fetterman is killing Oz, and should. The later would be a pickup for the Dems, as they are running to replace Republican Pat Toomey, who said he'd not seek re-election to return to the private sector. Interestingly enough Toomey is one of the GOPers who actually voted to impeach Trump. Trump continues to damage their party.

    The Florida Senate race is a long shot. Even though Marco Rubio is highly ineffective, and Val Demings would kick his ass in any feats of strength, Ron DeSantis is at the top of the ticket. The pro-fascist, pro-forced birth crowd is head over heels in love with DeSantis so that should carry Little Marco.

    Oz proving again that he's not a real Pennsylvanian. Only tourists get their steaks at Pat's and Geno's. Loser.

    Rimshot for Fetterman:

    I guess the Pat's management leans Dem, but it tracks that Geno Vento (pictured with Oz) would lean Republican. He's been famous for posting xenophobic, nativist signage at the order window.

    With all the ballots finally counted, Howell won by 7677 votes (out of a 2.4 million between the two). Unfortunate. Shellenberger kept his 3rd place standing in the the race, making it to over 4%.

    So far both WA Rs that voted for impeachment look to be going on to the general.

    Their Trump endorsed challengers are not only losing to the incumbent but coming in 3rd behind Democrats (we have a Top Two primary) meaning they are out.

    538’s generic ballot average just moved to +D territory for the first time since November last year.

    When Dobbs came out it was R+2.6; Six weeks later it is D+.1.

    13 weeks until the election.

    We need ~D+2 to overcome the Rs’ structural advantage and make it fair shot.

    Well, that should go over well in the Navajo Nation.

    The Republicans had better get on finding some creative new ways to suppress the Native vote. Maybe closing half the polling places in Navajo and Apache counties, or the same ratfucking they tried in North Dakota with the street addresses.

    Poll published today has Florida senate race a dead heat.

    Ryan is leading in Ohio which both makes sense and yet is somehow a relief. Fetterman is in good shape, no one deserves to be booted more than Ron Johnson. Some think NC can be picked off (I'm less confident but would love to be wrong) - holding what you have and adding 3-5 is a realistic goal for the Dems (and if what they say about the 2024 map is true they need every seat) - question is whether they can cling to the House majority.

    They have done an impressive job this Congress and it could get even better if you hold both chambers and Manchin and Senima no longer hold the hammer.

    Honestly now that I look at it, I don't think that 2024 is actually that brutal. It is true that (if you include the independents) the Dems are defending 23 seats, but only Tester and Manchin are in what would be considered an underdog race. 14 are not in ANY danger and six of the other seven are perfectly winnable races in places like Nevada and Michigan. Particularly if the Republicans keep nominating Trumpian bozos.

    The other seat is Sinema who, gods willing, will get primaried but still be a Dem hold.

    It is all defense tho, the closest thing to a potential pickup is Ted Cruz and Rick Scott.

    I was joking. And they're as much of a nation as we allow them to be.
