Victory is so close that I can nearly taste it, I simply just can't wait. For some of us, the sweetness of victory comes with a sense of righteous revenge as well. It is incredible for me to ponder just where all of us have been in the last two years.
A year and a half ago I was battling the demons of emotions quite different than those today. I'm sure you were too.
The final USA Today/Gallup November 2 midterm election poll shows a historically "unprecedented" 15 point Republican lead on the generic ballot. Yes, that's a tidal wave.
Liberal NYT/Five Thirty Eight pollster Nate Silver suggests that urban Manhattan liberals "add some whiskey to their November 3 commute-coffee," "5 Reasons that Republicans Could do Even Better Than Expected," lays out a venerable liberal-apocalyptico the day after tomorrow. Could we turn that scene into a movie one day? Fear and NY-liberal loathing - five reasons for a November tidal wave.
Tea party favorite, Alaska's Joe Miller down and out as many on the left (and the GOP establishment) have portended? Not quite. A new Public Policy Polling poll has Miller 7% ahead of write-in Lisa Murkowski and Democrat Scott McAdams. With nary a child molester in sight, an Alaskan tidal wave is coming to DC.
It will be close and perhaps not certified tomorrow night but Harry. Reid. Will. Lose. PPP has Angle one point ahead but favored 48-40 by those who are going to vote tomorrow. Teeth gnashing is a leading indicator - the left is already grinding their molars over a possible Angle revisit of the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste dump issue. Nevadans are Angling for a dust storm tidal wave on Tuesday.
A Kentucky tidal wave-Randslide is in the works too. PPP has Rand Paul 15% ahead of his Democrat rival. I can't wait to watch Rand debate the statist scum in the United States Senate. Far from the coast, a Kentucky tidal wave is a-coming.
Head east to find Ken Buck leading Democrat Michael Bennet by a thin margin. Dig a little deeper to find Buck's 50-46 lead with indies and an astonishing 55-41 lead among those who are voting tomorrow. Ken will not Buck the tea party tidal wave tomorrow but it may be close.
Stay tuned for tidal wave updates...
Updated: In the comments Nick from "It's Just My Opinion" laments the fact that the People's Republic of Cailfornia is, for the most part, excluded from the national trend to fiscal sanity. This looks to be true but I MUST STRESS that everyone reading this takes part in the GOTV effort in California. Do everything you can to help others to polling places, etc. and even though they are anything but ideal in a libertarian/conservative sense, you MUST support Carly Fiorina and Meg Whitman.
Leslie Eastman has an awesome Star Trek-themed list of suggested votes for those that reside in San Diego/California. Here are her proposition suggestions:
California PropositionsFor the record, Prop 19 is evenly split among the SLOB members so your vote may differ on that one. Go here to read the rest of her suggestions!
Prop 19 – No* (Marijuana Decriminalized)
Prop 20 – Yes (Resdistricting commission)
Prop 21 – No (Vehicle License fee for parks)
Prop 22 – No (Transport and other tricky provisions)

Prop 25 – No, Heck No (Legislative majority on budget)

Updated again: It looks like Republican Liberty Caucus endorsed Pat Toomey is running away with the race against Joe Sestak, too. PPP has the race at 51-46 with Toomey leading. Over 20% of Democrats are going to vote for Toomey as well. The gubernatorial race is going to the GOP as well. A tidal wave is heading to the Keystone state!
