I've noticed Dem ads have been crediting their individual candidates with passage of acts for our benefit as if the individual candidate  "gave us" thus and so tax break or whatever and so on.  Not "sponsored" or "supported," but phrased as if they alone did the good deed.  First time I ever heard this technique.  Is this going on all over, or is it just Colorado?

Seems kinda underhanded to me.  Well, misleading anyhow.

I'll see dozens of candidates start to use the same phrasing on stuff within an hour or so... They've got folks in Washington pushing the narratives HARD.

So many of the folks claiming there is going to be a "red wave" are supporting their predictions citing the many races where the Republican is "closing the gap".  Closing the gap means nothing.  There will be no red wave if the Republican challengers don't actually surpass their Democrat opponents by a substantial amount in polling.
While there are some, I've not seen that many races where the R candidate is actually ahead of the Democrat by a meaningful amount.  The R's might take the House this go around, but likely not by a large margin, and they certainly won't gain a super majority.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Repubs +2 in the senate and probably at least +30 House. And then they will piss it away with show legislation they know will get vetoed and circus hearings and otherwise pandering to "their base."

I think it's very hard to communicate to the median voter convincingly the chaos that a GOP victory is likely to unleash, and I think a lot of professionals vastly underestimate the tail risk.

Heard a couple of short blurbs about Mitch McConnell allegedly trying hard to make some specific R candidates lose.

Yep, Democrats slip crap into spending bills and such all the time.  Republicans rarely do that.  I assume too many establishment R's just don't want to.

This is at least the third time that McConnell has pulled financial support from a race that could potentially be flipped or won by the Republican candidate.  McConnell and the RNC leadership have made their intentions clear:  They have no desire for the Republicans to take the Senate.

FWIW, there are a LOT of people in urban St. Louis who are NOT happy with the current administration.

This may turn out ugly. Then again, it will probably be Democrats who get elected in this machine city, and the majority of them are pretty much just socialists.

We have a far left POS, Joe Cunningham, running for governor against the Republican incumbent

He’s desperately trying to attract votes by claiming he’s going to eliminate the state income tax (he does not have the authority to do so). He’s endorsed Biden and Pelosi among numerous despicable lefty *expletive deleted*it.

There are reports some Republicans might vote for Republicans, meaning election-deniers may elect other election-deniers, who will deny their own election. At the same time, the election-deniers will deny having elected said election-deniers.

At this time, it is unknown whether denial of having voted for an election-denier in an election will or will not be a defense against the charge of having voting for an election-denier in an election.
