Daniel……New York Senate Special: New Marist Poll spells some HUGE Trouble for Gillibrand EVEN without Pataki…..

Hello Dog!

A new Statewide Survey in the Empire State spells some huge Trouble for Junior Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). True this isn’t reflected in the Head-to-Head Match-Ups BUT if you have only a 27 %!!! Job Approvals you’re in some serious dudu. So even if Pataki doesn’t run (which as of now doesn’t seem likely) DON’T COUNT OUT other Candidates like Bruce Blakeman (R-NY).

2008 Recap: Who would have thought then Senator Elizabeth Dole (R-NC) would lose against a little known State Senator named Kay Hagan (D-NC)? Candidates do matter and if you run a decent Campaign you can still win even if you’re the UNDERDOG.

Note: Remainder: May I say to you that Cuomo still isn’t in the Governor Race so plenty of time for Pataki to decide.

Analysis:

This doesn’t look good for Gillibrand with a 27 % JA EVEN if she leads DioGuardi & Blakeman by around 20 Points. That can disappear very fast once a Campaign gets started. AND until Pataki goes before CAMERA and says NO I’m still hopeful. The Filling Deadline in New York isn’t until June 14th.

Daniel G.

Daniel….I TOLD YOU…..I TOLD YOU….ITOLD YOU!…she is not the best candidate the Democrats could have……I am not at all surprised…she may win…but she is going be skating on very thin ice till November 5th……

Dan Senor…..Possible New York Senate Republican candidate……

[Dan Senor is expected to decide within a month on a candidacy.]

Ah, what about all that Fox Cable time…..does that help?

And Rick Lazio needs to start a new career guess, huh?

Mr. Senor, 38, who is married to the CNN anchorwoman Campbell Brown, is expected to decide in the next month whether to run. The discussions between Mr. Senor and the Republican leaders reflect their dissatisfaction with the existing field of Republican candidates in the state and their consensus that Ms. Gillibrand remains vulnerable to a challenger in the election this fall.

In recent weeks, as Democratic political prospects have soured, a number of big-name Republicans — including Rudolph W. Giuliani, the former mayor and presidential candidate — have urged Mr. Senor to consider running.

“Rudy is very impressed with him and pleased that he is considering running,” said Anthony V. Carbonetti, a senior adviser to Mr. Giuliani, who said the former mayor had lunch with Mr. Senor a few days ago.

Among others who have encouraged him are Senator John Cornyn of Texas, the chairman of theNational Republican Senatorial Committee; Michael R. Long, the leader of the New York Conservative Party; and Edward F. Cox, the chairman of the state’s Republican Party, according to people with direct knowledge of the conversations

The Republican leaders, who cautioned that they were not backing any single candidate, have told Mr. Senor that his deep ties in the party, expertise on national security and background as a businessman would make him a formidable candidate. His New York roots do not hurt, either: he was born in Utica, which could appeal to upstate voters wary of his Manhattan address.

Mr. Senor declined to be interviewed for this article.

Ms. Gillibrand, who was appointed to the Senate last year by Gov. David A. Paterson, appears to be cruising toward the Democratic nomination, but the depth of her support across the state is unclear. National Democratic leaders have aggressively, and successfully, sought to elbow out potential primary challengers to Ms. Gillibrand, like Representative Steve Israel and Harold E. Ford Jr., a former United States representative from Tennessee.

She has had lackluster poll ratings, and with Democrats headed into difficult midterm elections, Republicans see a chance to win a Senate seat in New York. So far, two Republicans have said they will run: Bruce A. Blakeman, who dropped out of the New York mayoral race last year, and David Malpass, a former economist at Bear Stearns who worked in the Reagan administration.

As a late entry into the race, Mr. Senor would need to raise an estimated $15 million over the next seven months to compete in the primary and then against Ms. Gillibrand, who is known as a thoroughbred in the Democratic fund-raising world. Republican Party leaders have pledged to aid him, and a number of influential donors have told him that they will raise money for him if he runs.

Powerful surrogates are already vouching for Mr. Senor (pronounced See-NOR). Last weekend, Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina, promoted Mr. Senor as a possible Senate candidate during a speech to big donors of the Republican Jewish Coalition in Las Vegas, Mr. Graham’s office confirmed.

A Senor Senate candidacy could complicate the work of his wife, whose nightly program on CNN emphasizes its nonpartisan approach to news and politics. Her program at one point embraced the tagline “No bias. No bull.”

New York's Sen Gillibrand gets critical looks…and is found wanting…..

It is starting to happen….Once the media and politico’s in New York find it safe to speak out against Chuck Schumer’s Kirsten Gillibrand…the flood gates are going to open…..here’s the first on many pieces on the junior New York Senator appointed ….not elected…to her job…..

<br /> (Getty Images)

In the 12 months since Governor David Paterson made Kirsten Gillibrand a senator, her poll numbers have done something rather remarkable: that is, nothing.

There are several explanations for why Ms. Gillibrand’s statewide approval ratings have spent a year mired in the mid-20s, despite her superior title and elevated profile: Her appointment process was publicly bungled; her stance on issues like guns and gay rights evolved in disarmingly short order; and, since she’s never had to run a statewide campaign, many voters still don’t know who she is, or, for that matter, what she’s doing down in Washington.

But the junior senator may also be battling something more fundamental: her voice.

“Kirsten Gillibrand has what I would call a non-regional American young female’s accent,” wrote Dr. Bert Vaux, a sociolinguistics scholar at the University of Cambridge, who was asked by The Observer to analyze Ms. Gillibrand’s public speaking. “Though I lack the phonetic expertise to put my finger on what exactly is involved in this, her voice quality is of the sort that is typically associated with pre-workforce-age white American females. Judging by the case of this woman, this speech pattern has now extended into higher age ranges.”

Though Dr. Vaux stressed we should all avoid our “pre-programmed” tendency to form biases based solely on someone’s speech, he noted that Ms. Gillibrand often employs a “rising intonation pattern at the end of declarative clauses that lay people tend to associate with teenage girls,” a tendency that gives way to a “classic trigger of linguistic profiling.”

Translation: She sounds more like the cheerleader than the class president.

Ms. Gillibrand offered one concrete example of this amid a scrum of reporters in Harlem earlier this week. “Martha’s gonna wiin!” she squeaked, referring to Martha Coakley, the Democrats’ embattled Senate candidate in Massachusetts. “Martha’s gonna wiiiin!” she said, her voice rising even higher. “Just be positive!”

“In general, she speaks in a much less formal register than one expects from a senator,” Dr. Vaux wrote.

What exactly one expects from a senator has become a subject of growing debate, as Ms. Gillibrand increasingly tries to beat back a potential primary challenger, former congressman Harold Ford Jr.—a smooth-talking scion of Tennessee’s back-slapping political establishment, whose chief qualification seems to be that he presents better than she does.

A Poor Contrast

Take, for example, a joint appearance by the senator and her would-be challenger on Jan. 18 at Al Sharpton’s Martin Luther King Jr. celebration in East Harlem.

Mr. Ford was in his element. Speaking without notes, he leaned on the lectern and spun stories, effortlessly, about the years he spent growing up around his grandmother’s house in Memphis. (He made sure to include the anecdote that spawned his forthcoming book—More Davids Than Goliaths, slated for publication one week before New York’s primary.) His cadences were relaxed and familiar. When he delivered his laugh lines, the audience laughed. When Mr. Ford began a Bible verse, the audience piped up to help him finish it.

“I felt like he knew how the audience would respond,” said Dina Mathis, a 43-year-old from Co-op City who was in the audience.

“He’s great,” one reporter gushed to another.

Ms. Gillibrand’s delivery was somewhat less inspiring.

“At this time of immense hope and possibility, that is best symbolized with Barack Obama as our president, there is still inequity, injustice and inaction that persist,” she said.

The speech received occasional bursts of polite applause.

“It was a well-written speech, but unfortunately, she read it,” said Bronx Assemblyman Michael Benjamin. “It didn’t come from her emotions. Be passionate. I like what she said, but it didn’t come across that way because she was reading it.”

With grim, almost systematic regularity since her appointment as senator, Ms. Gillibrand has underwhelmed audiences at precisely the times at which the most eyes were on her. At her initial press conference on Jan. 23, standing beside Al D’Amato, she named a long list of relatives and mentors, and touched on a hodgepodge of policy issues, without any discernible narrative arc or even basic structure. In the process, she missed a congratulatory call from the president.

And then on July 13, when she was given five minutes to introduce Supreme Court nominee, and fellow New Yorker, Sonia Sotomayor—a national coming-out party engineered in part by Ms. Gillibrand’s mentor, Senator Chuck Schumer—Ms. Gillibrand delivered a deliberate set of remarks that came painfully close to sounding like a biographical report presented to the class. As she stretched past the six-minute mark, the Senate Judiciary chairman, Patrick Leahy, had heard enough.

“Senator, we’re going to have to put your full statement in the record so that Judge Sotomayor can be heard,” Mr. Leahy said.

“May I conclude my remarks?” Ms. Gillibrand asked with a smile

“If it can be done in the next few seconds, Senator.”

“Yep, one minute,” she said.

He grumbled. She skipped to her last line.

You see?

Harold Ford Jr. starts to work the black vote in New York……and WHY ARE ALL BLACKS SUPPOSED TO BE POOR?

Here’s a piece from the New York Daily News on Harold Ford Jr., the probable U.S. senate democratic candidate…

…notice how the descriptions allude to Ford ‘s money….

…why does the media, and  all the lefty’s, criticize a black man for having money?…..are all BLACK POLITICAN’S suppose to be poor?

There has been a concerted effort in the push back against Harold Ford Jr. in New York by establishment types and Gillirand boosters to accentuate that Harold Ford Jr.. isn’t some poor, hand me down black person….almost every reference to him us about rich white donors and Ford getting driven around New York City in SUV’s…..now I’ve been watching this whole thing from when Schumer proportioned Gillibrand to take the senate seat…and no one…no one….has complained about the company Gillibrand keeps to make her money……what’s going on here folks??????

The white liberal cadre out there, that supports a ‘New York Blue Dog Democrat’ is attacking Ford, for travelin in same circles as Gillibrand…and he’s the bad guy????

Last time I looked their stances on most polices, were the same……..

What gives?

Here’s the piece……..link..….

P.S.

I’ll hope we’ll get some Governor Poll also very soon. (so do we )

Merlin

Ok…while the poll is out…..we have few things to add to Merlins comments………

First this from the poll story….

……43% of registered Democratic voters in New York State say they would back Gillibrand in this fall’s Democratic primary while 24% would cast their ballot for Ford.  Although Gillibrand has a double-digit lead over Ford, a notable proportion — 33% — are unsure about whom they’d support……

Woa!…did you see the undecideds???

and then there is this……

Nearly two-thirds of Democrats in New York State say a candidate who is more conservative than most Democrats in the state can still get their vote.  This includes 42% who report it makes no difference to them if a candidate is more conservative and 23% who say they would be more likely to vote for a candidate who is more conservative than most Democrats in the state.  35%, though, would be less likely to vote for such a candidate.

and this……

48% of Democratic voters statewide view Kirsten Gillibrand favorably while 20% have an unfavorable impression of her.  32% have either never heard of the senator or are unsure how to rate her.

Her potential opponent for the Democratic nomination has a lot of work to do if he wants to become a household name in the state.  When it comes to Democrats’ impressions of Ford, a whopping 52% have either never heard of him or are unsure how to rate him.  34%, though, have a positive view of Ford while 14% have an unfavorable impression of him.

While Gillibrand beats Ford even in the city and downstate now…we have to remember that Ford has not campaign one single bit…..hasn’t introduced himself to the voters and still is only 19% behind Gillibrand….this is good for the senator…but could be trouble also…with the left, liberals and some party people throwing everything at Ford not to run…a strong anti-establishment themed run could hurt Gillibrand…..

Good numbers off the bat…but there could be serious trouble up ahead……

I see PoliticalWire has mentioned something about an Indie run for Ford…..such a run would surely fail in the state…..

Update:…..more on the numbers from the Observer’s PoliticerNY…..link.

The White House throws its first punches at Harold Ford Jr……

This statement from White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs on Ford’s possible primarying Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand………..

“I think the White House is quite happy with the leadership and the representation of Sen. Gillibrand in New York,” said Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs.

“We’re supporting her reelection,” he added.

Here’s the link on the New York Daily News story……..

HOLD ON TO YOUR SEATS!…the ride has just begun in the quest for the US Senate seat from New York…..

We here at the Dog have been telling anyone who will listen that New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo will be the next New York Sate Governor….forget current Governor Paterson….he’s gone……

Well it turns out that the Republicans have come to that conclusion also…….Merlin has tipped us off to the fact that The New York Post’s Fred Dicker …a serious Albany political reporter is now reporting that several key Republicans are asking Rick Lazio to drop his bid for governor and join Harold Ford Jr. in taking on Kirsten Gillibrand…..who will be an easy target…..

This turn events can only embolden Harold Ford to decide to take on Gillibrand in the democratic primary since her only friends in the state are Chuck Schumer and left-wing of the democrat’s( unbelievable, isn’t that, with her record!) …….

Most of the established New York media have come down in favor of a Ford run so that they can sell newspapers……

And judging by the comments on the net’ on the Ford run….people seem to be saying…..’let him run’…..

Poor Chuck Schumer….just when he though he had ‘it’…..’it’ falls apart…..

Sen Gillibrand trys the money angle on Harold Ford Jr…….

The New York Times does a piece this morning pointing out that Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand has $7 million on hand for the fall race and she could be expect to double that figure by later this year…..And those facts are enough…Hernandez does admit that Gillibrand’s people ARE WORRIED…….

But as I have posted here that may not be enough this time……Harold Ford Jr has been around the block….He has been part of the national democratic apparatus for the last few years…..And he is smart…..And he is black…..Don’t forget any of the things I just mentioned….

Kirsten Gillibrand has still not caught on in downstate New York……

If Ford runs…. He will pick up the New York City minority vote in an instant…and the rest of the city will follow……that makes him the leader in this by a hair……after that….. Lets see what happens…..

No matter how much the senator’s people give to the New York Times….the democratic senator still loses in polling to ANY named Republican that would run for the seat that she was GIVEN…not elected to……

I’ll say it again…The Dog hopes Harold Ford, Jr. runs….And sends Kirsten back upstate……..
