This is not a surprise, is a logical result, without republican opposition Boren is safe, like much others (Matheson, Mollohan...). And Boren surname help him, we must remember all is not own success in Dan Borens case.This poll mean some of supposedly endangered democrats in red states are safe.They are not evidence than democrats will lose more than 15 house seats.


@Christian Liberty - Actually most Americans do want the health care bill. They wish it was stronger.Look at Spector. His poll numbers INCREASED upon him supporting the bill. Good. ~SPA

Borens independence is his best asset:Boren calls for Rengel to resign as ChairmanOklahoma Democratic U.S. Representative Dan Boren has joined others in calling for New York Democratic congressman Charles Rangel to resign as chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee. ...Republicans plan to call today for a vote in the House to remove Rangel and Boren said he will vote for such action.http://www.ktok.com/cc-common/news/sections/newsarticle.html?feed=119211&article;=6835183

Given Borens past electoral performances (66%, 73%, 70%), I was rather surprised that he was under 50%.This could be the Republicans best performance in this race since Tom Coburn left office.

If Democrats cared about being a party that represents America, they would keep moderates like Boren (OK) and Altmire (PA) and abandon left-wing lunatics like Grayson (FL) and Schakowsky (IL).If Democrats cared about representing America, their first priority would be to support the Democrats who wisely voted against the health(s)care bill that the overwhelming majority of American oppose. If Democrats cared at all about representing America, the 39 Democrats who voted against the house health(s)care bill would be the partys heroes. The fact that Democrats speak ill of these representatives, just proves that Democrats hold Americans in contempt and only dream up ways of ramming their totalitarian tyranny down our throats.

Were actually surprised that he hasnt flipped parties by now. Stubborn sort, I guess.

@AnonymousSpecter is going to lose BECAUSE of his support for the Democrats healthScare bill.Specter should be listening to wiser Democrats like Jason Altmire: (NYT) “I don’t know of any no votes at this point that would switch unless the bill is substantially changed, including me,” he said. “And I know of a handful of ‘yes’ votes who regret it and would relish the opportunity to put a ‘no’ vote on the board so they could go back home and talk about that.”All intelligent Democrats in competitive races either voted NO on health care or WISH THEY HAD.

Christian Liberty

Most Americans want Congress to either START OVER on healthcare with a blank sheet of paper or else SCRAP THE BILL entirely. Passing the Democrats bill is the LEAST popular option.

PPP POLLS BY YEAR: 2006-2017

We came to PPP after a public poll in the San Jose Mayoral race showed our opponent ahead by 8 points. They found our candidate (Sam Liccardo) ahead by 3 points and that allowed us to be able to push back with the press against the perception that our opponent was now a strong favorite in the race. Sam ended up winning by 2 points and is now the next Mayor of San Jose. PPP worked very fast and had a very accurate read on the electorate when we needed them
