HOW DO ANY DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSMEN DOWNTICKET KEEP THEIR JOBS?:

GOP's John Kasich Opens Big Lead Over Ted Strickland in Ohio Governor Race (Bruce Drake, 9/16/10, Politics Daily)

Former Republican Rep. John Kasich now leads Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland by 17 points in Ohio's gubernatorial race, according to a Quinnipiac University poll conducted Sept. 9-14.

Kasich is running ahead of Strickland by 54 percent to 37 percent among likely voters with 7 percent undecided. While there's not a big difference in the level of support each gets from his own party, Kasich leads among independents by 55 percent to 32 percent with 10 percent undecided.


Poll: Snyder keeps lead on Bernero, with few undecided (Karen Bouffard, 9/15/10, Detroit News)
Republican Rick Snyder has maintained the lead he built after the August primaries with a 20.3 percentage point cushion over Democratic opponent Virg Bernero and a shrinking pool of undecided voters.

Snyder is ahead of the Lansing mayor 56.2 percent to 35.9 percent among likely November general election voters, according to a Detroit News/Local 4 WDIV poll released Thursday.


Democrats want to individualize congressional races where they're staying competitive, but if those races are close in isolation and the top of your ticket is about to lose by 20%, you've already lost.
