The latest Rasmussen Reports [I] poll shows that, for the fifth consecutive poll, incumbent Sen. Maria Cantwell has lost support. She now leads assumed Republican nominee Mike McGavick 44-40, down two points from May (McGavick also has lost one point of support). National Republicans are beginning to lump us with New Jersey and Minnesota as their only potential bright spots in November's Senate races, and I would say for good reason. Cantwell, despite trotting out every Democratic Party superstar in the book at her rallies, cannot seem to shake the lefty jitters over her Iraq War position. However, before I change my personal prediction of a narrow Cantwell retention, McGavick needs to get up in the mid-40s.

I like to think that I'm a rarity in blogging, in that I'm a political nerd who doesn't have a partisan axe to grind in everything they write. I considered myself a Republican up until 2004 when I finally had enough of their bible-based politics, yet still harbour a deep dislike of the Democratic Party because of their ties to labour groups as well as their tendency to bloat budgets. Ideologically I'm somewhere between centrist and libertarian. On economics I fit neatly in the centre-right, while on social issues I can be fairly radical. And no, I'm not British. It's just that I can respect that they created our language and know how to write it properly.
