New Polls Indicate that Republicans Will Control the Senate

Thirty-six Senate seats are up for grabs on the ballot in November 2014. Twenty-one of them are held by Democrats and 15 by Republicans. The Republicans need a net gain of six seats to take control of the Senate.

Joseph Lawler wrote an article titled “New polls show GOP with edge in tight race for Senate control” which was published by The Washington Examiner on October 26, 2014. The reporter indicated that two major polls released on October 26, 2014 revealed that Republicans have a slight edge in the races that will determine control of the Senate. Both a new NBC News/Marist poll and a New York Times/CBS News/YouGov survey indicated that Republicans have a narrow but increasingly lead in enough swing states to give them a slight majority in the Senate.

pollLawler pointed out that the Marist polls of six key states released on October 26, 2014 show the GOP leading in four of the races for the Senate. In South Dakota, the Republican candidate Mike Rounds winning by 14%. In North Carolina, Democratic Senator Kay Hagan’s early lead over Republican Thom Tillis has now turned into a dead heat with each candidate obtaining 43%. In other states where Democrats hoped to pick up a Republican Senate seat, the odds have moved away from the Democratic candidates.

Lawler wrote that even in the Kansas election between incumbent Republican Senator Pat Roberts and independent Greg Orman has shifted in Roberts’ direction, according to both the Marist and YouGov polls. Senator Roberts has moved from a tie two weeks ago to a 4% lead in the YouGov poll, and from being behind by 10% to a dead heat in the Marist poll. In Georgia, Republican Senate candidate David Perdue has 3% advantage over Democrat Michelle Nunn in a race that has been extremely close in other polls. In Colorado and Iowa, two swing states the Democrats must hold to retain control of the Senate, the races remain dead heats.

In Colorado the Senate race is in a dead heat. Incumbent Democratic Senator Mark Udall leads GOP candidate Congressman Cory Gardner by 1% in the YouGov poll, but trails by 1% in the Marist poll. In Iowa Republican Joni Ernst has a 3% lead over Democrat Bruce Braley by Marist’s poll, but is tied with him at 44% in the YouGov survey. Republican candidates are leading in the polls in Arkansas, Kentucky, Alaska and Louisiana.

Kyle Kondik and Geoffrey Skelley wrote an article entitled “Senate Forecast: Cloudy With a Good Chance of a Republican Majority” for Rasmussen Reports on October 23, 2014. The two reporters have slightly different numbers, but even so they agree that Republicans will likely win control of the Senate.

Kyle Kondik and Geoffrey Skelley indicated that the most likely result is a Republican majority, as the Crystal Ball ’s outlook of Republicans adding five to eight seats has long indicated. The Republicans look certain to win Democratic-controlled seats in Montana and West Virginia. In South Dakota former Republican Governor Mike Rounds appears to be winning over Democrat Rick Weiland and independent former Republican Senator Larry Pressler in a three-way race. In Arkansas, Democratic Senator Mark Pryor is losing to Republican Congressman Tom Cotton (R) which leads the incumbent Democratic Senator by 49%-41%.

Kyle Kondik and Geoffrey Skelley explained that in Iowa Republican State Senator Joni Ernst is ahead by 2.5% in the average of polls over Democratic Congressman Bruce Braley. If Joni Ernst wins that would be a net gain of five for the Republican Party. In Alaska, Republican Dan Sullivan has been leading Democratic Senator Mark Begich in all recent polls If Dan Sullivan wins, that would give the GOP a sixth seat. The reporters currently expect both Toss-up contests in Georgia and Louisiana to head to runoffs.

Of course, Republican Senator Pat Roberts needs to win in Kansas. As indicated earlier, the Kansas election between incumbent Republican Senator Pat Roberts and independent Greg Orman has shifted in Senator Roberts’ direction, according to both the Marist and YouGov polls.

Kyle Kondik and Geoffrey Skelley explained that according to the polls Republicans will win 49 seats and Democrats will have 47 seats. They explained that to obtain a majority, Republicans need to win half of the Toss-up states. The reporters concluded that the Senate remains too close to call, but it’s clear that Republicans are well positioned to win a majority and that Democrats’ backs are up against the wall as Election Day approaches.

However, all of these polls do not mean anything if there is no transparency and honesty in the November 2014 elections. As I have written in my book America in Decline (2014) there was widespread fraud in the presidential elections of 2008 and 2012.

Could non-citizens decide the November 2014 election?

Jesse Richman and David Earnest wrote an article entitled “Could non-citizens decide the November election?” which was published in The Washington Post on October 24, 2014. The reporters raised the following question: Could control of the Senate in 2014 be decided by illegal votes cast by non-citizens? In a study conducted by Cooperative Congressional Election Study (CCES), it was revealed that more than 14% of non-citizens in both the 2008 and 2010 indicated that they were registered to vote.

The CCES concluded that 6.4% of non-citizens voted in 2008 and 2.2% of non-citizens voted in 2010. The study indicated the following: ” Because non-citizens tended to favor Democrats (Obama won more than 80% of the votes of non-citizens in the 2008 CCES sample), we find that this participation was large enough to plausibly account for Democratic victories in a few close elections. Non-citizen votes could have given Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health-care reform and other Obama administration priorities in the 111th Congress.
The CCES study explained that Democratic Senator Al Franken, from Minnesota, one election in 2008 with a victory margin of 312 votes. Obama carried North Carolina in 2008 by 14,177 votes. The CCES pointed out that non-citizens who had given victories for the Democrats on both of those states.

It is no wonder that President Barack Obama wants to illegally and in violation of the Constitution issue an executive order legalizing several millions of undocumented immigrants. If 80% of the non-citizens voted for him and the Democrats illegally as indicated by the CCES study, such a move will give the Democratic Party a permanent majority of the votes in future elections without having to commit fraud.

The House of Representatives should impeach the president should he issue an unconstitutional executive order bypassing the separation of powers clause of the Constitution. Only Congress has the legal authority of changing immigration laws. If Republicans allow Obama to get away with such a gross violation of the Constitution, they will be responsible for Barack Obama becoming a dictator. After the November election regardless which party controls the Senate, Republicans in Congress need to seriously consider the impeachment of President Obama. He has violated the Constitution multiple times since assuming power in 2009. Obama has been involved in multiple scandals, any one of which are sufficient ground for impeachmnet.

Obama has committed the most crimes of any president in history. Which president has ever said arrogantly that he has a “pen and a phone” and that if Congress does not pass the laws he wants, he will issue executive orders? Republicans in the House of Representative have also a pen in which to write articles of impeachment and a phone to call the Senate.


It appears that according to most polls that the Republicans are likely to win the Senate. However, electoral integrity is once again at risk. As we approach the midterm election in November 2014, the issue of electoral integrity in Internet voting and the use of electronic voting machines throughout the nation comes once again into question. I have written in my recent book America in Decline (2014) and in many articles that there was widespread fraud in the presidential elections of 2008 and 2012.

In addition to the fact that thousands non-citizens are illegally voting by an 80% margin for the Democratic Party, there was the fact that the Pentagon violated federal law in 2012. I reported how the Pentagon, in violation of federal law, did not send in many cases the absentee ballots in time for the brave men and women of our Armed Forces who were fighting in Afghanistan and stationed in other nations abroad so they could participate in the 2012 presidential election.

This was an outrageous action since the members of our Armed Forces were and still are fighting to preserve our Constitutional Republic and many of them were denied the fundamental right to vote. It is well known that a large portion of our military detest our weak and incompetent Commander-in-Chief who lives in the White House. I believe that this was done deliberately by President Obama in 2012 since many members of our military lived in battleground states.

Greg Gordon, an investigative reporter of McClatchy Washington Bureau, wrote an article entitled “Pentagon unit mum on 2011 Internet voting tests results” which was published in The Miami Herald on October 2, 2014. There is absolutely no reason to delay sharing with the people of the United States the results of the Pentagon 2011 study.

The conclusion of the Pentagon study should have been release in time for the 2012 presidential election and the 2014 midterm election. This action by the Pentagon, more than likely directed by the White House, does not pass the smell test. Why is the Pentagon now refusing to release the results of the study done three years ago? Why is the Pentagon stating that it expects to release the study results in 2015? Is the White House involved in another cover-up?

It is well known to Congress, as a result of numerous testimony by computer experts, that all electronic voting machines can be easily tampered in less than a minute by introducing a virus. The computer virus will lay dormant until the day of the election and self destruct immediately after the polls close without leaving a trace. Additionally, the information from precincts to a larger computer can be captured and the results changed as it is being transmitted electronically.

The Department of Justice has done everything in its power to prevent states from passing voter identification requirements in order to facilitate election fraud. Texas and North Carolina passed laws requiring voter identification before casting ballots. The Justice Department sued these two states alleging that those laws discriminated against minority voters.

There is no question in my mind that if the Democrats keep control of the Senate, it was because of massive fraud one more time.
