Kemp Up By A Whopping 1.4%

Does anyone still doubt November’s election will be a nailbiter?

If so the latest AJC/WSB poll should put that to bed. 

From the AJC writeup:

The poll showed Kemp ahead of Abrams 47.7 percent to 46.3 percent, a statistically insignificant difference within the poll’s 2.8 percentage point margin of error. Libertarian Ted Metz had 2.3 percent of support, and a slim 4 percent of voters are undecided.

Republicans were likely to cheer the rising approval rating for President Donald Trump, which has edged up roughly 4 percentage points since the September poll, settling at 46.6 percent. His disapproval rating remains steady at about 50 percent.

And Democrats could point to Abrams’ strength among both independents and her party’s core supporters — both groups that she needs to rally to win the race. Her strategy depends on expanding the state’s electorate to capture left-leaning voters who often skip midterms.

I have switched my prediction of Kemp winning to now Abrams winning. Kavanaugh has lit a fire under women to vote against any Trump apologist and Kemp is having traitor tot campaign for him.

Caroline, I will make you a friendly wager Abrams loses. It is not because she is black or female. It is because she is one word. L I B E R A L. A radical sandblasting liberal at that.

GA is not ready for that. Maybe San Fran. Not being ugly.

Yes, I am quite sure the defenders of the Lost Cause myth are not going to vote for Stacy Abrams. And there are people who will not vote for her because of her skin color and the fact that she’s a woman. If you don’t realize that you don’t know much about Georgia. I mean evangelical women won’t vote for any woman because they don’t believe women should be in any leadership roles. You want to dumb it down to being liberal. Y’all have been screaming nothing else for decades now. Get some new talking points.

Evangelical women that think women should just be subservient …per Caroline …does anyone on this blog know ANY female that fits that description ? I Don’t ! And I even go to church once in a while! Another liberal straw man! Can we all recalls what the Hikdabeast said about you women!? It was stunning! Your hero said this and even Trump is not stupid enough to say it or believe it! You women were too stupid enough to vote your own conscience but only listened to your husband, bosses and sons told you to vote for!! Good lord what… Read more »

No, dude evangelical women think they should be subsurvient because that is what they themselves say. You apparently have never listened to them talk.

The number of extreme Evangelicals who believe women are fully subservient to the point of doing everything their husbands tell them to do (including their vote) is a very small subset of the the Christian Right. Caroline does women in general a disservice to believe the majority of her sisters on the right are so week in mind, heart and belief that a husband’s command is going to make them do anything they themselves didn’t already planned to do because of their own belief system. The Bible might say women submit to their husbands, doesn’t mean they will do so…… Read more »

Well, Ellyn, where I get what I’m saying from is at one point in time I went to one of these churches that is pretty much what the majority said. One said if her huband told her to quit her job she would. Another said she can’t make decisions unless her husband okays it first. Personally I would find it hard to believe if I had not experienced it myself and was shocked at the fact that there are so many damaged women in the evangelical movement. Also listen to the leaders of the women’s evangelical movement and you get… Read more »

Sorry but D numbers went up 10% while GOP numbers stayed the same. Also caused very bad numbers for the GOP with independents

Bless you Ellynn for enlightening Caroline. I am from North GA and by gosh most women I know are what I call velvet hammers (that includes my wife!). They are nice on the outside but you are not going to tell them what the heck to do. They will knock you over the head with a hammer of sweetness! It aint happening. I can no better control my wife and what she wants to do than I can my darn house cat! Man is she independent. I don’t mind admitting I wear the panties in the family at times—and they… Read more »

As I noted MR DTM, subservient women exist. It’s not a myth, but an over hyped tag line of a rare group of female members of the GOP. In fact they are as rare as the all powerful ultra violent race baiting hate mongrel liberal folks (mainly women) taking over the world you clam are everywhere and out to get “us”. Your over generalization of the acts of the very rare extremely dangerous left leaning and most likely unstable individuals (like the man who shot a GOP congressman) due a disservice to your cause. The protestors of the last few… Read more »

Well, I certainly wouldn’t put election stealing past them since stealing seems to be their stock in trade. They will give up on democracy before they will accept losing elections.

Stealing elections. Do I have to show you Obama’s video again about telling Trump to grow a pair of nuts, get some votes and quit sniveling? Anyone that thinks Russia has an impact on our elections is a dummy. Those are his words. Now once she lost, its 2 years later and is still a pitiful sore loser, she still writes books about why she lost! I can tell her why she lost! Now we are getting stories from the libs reasons Stacy will get drilled before this election even occurs….Get the votes and quit whining. Now lets listen to… Read more »

DT, Aug. 1, 2016:
“I’m afraid the election’s going to be rigged. I have to be honest,” Trump told voters in Ohio, a crucial swing state.

So, just to be clear, you are being very critical of claims of rigged elections, when the man who gives you a woody has done the exact same thing.
And you actually used the word ‘hypocrisy’!

The difference was Trump was right! We was spied upon, lied about, leaked upon, the FBI,justice department and press were colluding and the extent it just coming out! Obama’s White House was involved and IRS was weaponized too. Do any of you wizards of smart want to be honest and agree with that?

That fact that Kemp has not resigned should be topic 1 in the debates. With no audit trails available we could better rely on handwritten ballots and indelibly inked thumbs like occupied Iraq.

Where is this “Myrtle’s” restaurant, again?

Google showed one in Gwinnett but it’s closed. There seems to be one in White, GA but it isn’t really a restaurant, more of a roadside stall.

I am interested to know where this is located.

Myrtle’s is actually a fake name, the names were changed to protect the innocent…Some conservatives might be afraid that you might bring a radical mob over and disrupt our lunch like they did poor ole Ted Cruz and Sarah Sanders. Would you be civil unlike many on the left?

Oh, fake. Color me surprised.

I thought you guys were bad asses who carry guns? Why would you be worried about a mob, just bring enough federal, right?

I don’t know if you have figured it out yet, but very few people actually like Ted Cruz. Like yourself, Ted Cruz is an big-time asshole, so I really could not care less what happened to him.

Matt, you if anyone knows what big time a–hole is, its you. Look in the mirror. I would figure once in a while you offer some comedic relief and show you actually have a personality.

You make yourself almost unlikable. No humor no nothing. Just sour all the time. Talking about the pot calling the kettle black.

Wishful thinking. Rural republicans are so fired up right now I think you are going to see record numbers. A lot of democrats are walking away and will either vote for Kemp or not come to the polls at all. The most vocal on a community fb group up here are woman and they are fired up and want every democrat out.

The walk away thing is a Russian narrative pushed on social media. All you are doing is proving that Russian propaganda works on conservatives but we already knew that. Sorry but “I know someone who does X” means exactly nothing.

Chef, Caroline is waiting for her husband, boss and sons to tell her who to vote for…like a good little Hillary supporter!! That is what Hillary says goes on with most women!! I kid you not! Can you see why the out of touch, untrustworthy Cretan lost a rigged election?! Had all of Washington colluding with her and still lost AGAIN!! Caroline, what if your husband and boss tell you to vote for Kemp? You can go vote early with me and Noway on Monday!! We can make our friendly wager on the election then too if you like!

Chef, I am seeing the same disdain from women as well in north GA. They want nothing to do with the liberal hit job, the hatred and the nonsensical economic policies. They are pissed.

Like most normal people they don’t like seeing the nonstop lies, name-calling, people railroaded, lied about and intimidated. They don’t like the mob any more than most folks do.

I am not sure where they find women that are supporting the good Dr. Ford with the hazy memory other than the few that watch CNN and have those pink hat things….

Not to repeat myself too much, but the notion that an impotent neckbeard like yourself has any inkling of what women are thinking or feeling is hilarious.

That’s a good description of what the tea party did in 2010 at local congressional offices and town Halls. I think I’m going to steel this my super secret mod inciting blog. (eyeroll)

Nobody is making the point that Trump isn’t keeping damaged women in his fold. The point is that Kavanaugh activated a lot of women who were not going to vote.
