"You mad, bro?" Nate Silver weighs in: Democrats face massacre in US Senate races, possibly down 12 senators.

As folks are finally getting past the hype (Clearly, the American voter can be quite gullible) and finally figuring out that the president is an empty-suited idiot and his party is bent on the destruction of this country.

Well, the trend is building, and congressionally, 2014 is trending towards a replay of 20 years ago, when the GOP swept the leftists out of office across the land in what amounts to a "reset" of government.

I'm not wild about the PROBABILITY of this outcome, because given GOP ineptitude at most levels, I have no real faith that they won't find a way to screw it up somehow, much like they screwed up 2012.

But the empty-suited, anti_American bigot's incompetence seems to finally be grating on the American people, save the color-blinded black voter, who has been trained to only think in terms of race when they vote (and when things like affirmative action don't go their way): and who will continue to slavishly support that simple idiot in the White House ENTIRELY because of his color, since he has done more TO the black population since his ascension to the throne than Jim Crow.

Polls Show ObamaCare Wave Building Against Senate Democrats

Recent polling shows that an election wave of anti-ObamaCare sentiment is growing, and it is not only likely to hand the GOP control of the United States Senate, but might wipe out as many as 12 Democrat seats--many of which looked safe just a few months ago. 

Back in July, Five Thirty Eight's election guru Nate Silver believed that control of the Senate was a tossup. That has all changed now that voters got their first real look at the brutal consequences of ObamaCare.

Starting with the generic ballot that simply pits Republican lawmakers against their Democrat counterparts, the movement towards the GOP has been striking. In the Real Clear Politics average of these polls, going back as far as the beginning of the year, Democrats have consistently led by 3 to 4 points. During the government shutdown, Democrats leaped to 6 and 7 point leads. Since the disastrous rollout of ObamaCare, though, Republicans are not only in the lead by 2.5 points, they have led in every poll but one since November 10.

This generic polling is reflected in the available polling of individual Senate seats.

Keep in mind that in order to win control of the Senate, Republicans need only pick up 6 seats, and with Democrat incumbents retiring in the redder than red states of South Dakota, West Virginia, and Montana, Republicans pretty much have three Senate pick-ups in the bag. But thanks to ObamaCare and vulnerable Democrat Senators refusing to put their own promises and the well being of their constituents above slavish devotion to Obama, picking off another three should be fairly easy.
