It's time for the Democrats to stop playing nice everywhere--from Iowa to Wisconsin to Massachusetts to every state in the country. The Republicans never ever take the high road--indeed, they continuously laugh at Democrats for doing so.

For decades now, Rove, Norquist, the Koch Brothers and Limbaugh have been at the helm of their party--and their years and years of endless lies and smears are working everywhere! These folks long ceased caring about facts and the truth! ! From the Presidential race to almost every down-ballot race, the Dems must run ads that concentrate on showing just how arrogant and entitled the Republican Party is by revealing how Romney and Ryan fail to pay their fair share of taxes, support Corporations and the Top 1 Percent at everyone else's expense, seek to cut Medicare, and are ready to send America back to Stone Age with their political platform. The same is true for ads in ALL races--especially in the Senate races in places like Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Wisconsin for starters. In short, Democratic candidates must start connecting their Republican opponents with the Republican Party's heinous political/social agenda and platform--and not let them escape from this!

Democrats at every level of government must start realizing that what they are up against in political races is not just a candidate but the Republican "brand." And this Republican brand has -- from decades of Culture Wars that folks like Rove and Norquist started--too often succeeded in making the Democrats look weak and on the defensive. If Democrats continue to play nice and take the high road, they are fulfilling the Republican Party's prophecy.

What are you talking about "Midwesterner?" The dems are the ones who never take the high road. How long did it take for Obama to fabricate that fictitious birth certificate.... btw, here's even more proof it wasn't real: http://okmed.wordpress.com/2012/08/17/obamas-real-birth-certificate-liberals-should-delete-now/

"Fictitious birth certificate," Fred? Really?!! I rest my case!

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
