Merlin’s Observation:

This is really getting ugly for Culver. Those Numbers are even more worse than Ritter’s before the Colorado Governor announced his Retirement.

  1. Branstad has this in the bag and he’ll back at Terrace Hill for his 5th non-consecutive term on January 14, 2011.

    Culver is FINISHED.

  3. James B, Culver’s approval ratings are tanking very fast for a 1st term governor seeking re-election and it doesn’t help this is likely a BIG Republican year in the midterm elections, including governorships where I have the GOP picking up Michigan, Oklahoma, Wyoming (Freudenthal is not running), Tennessee, Iowa, and Kansas.
