I’ve written about it over and over. Democrats and their MSM allies love to play the “if the election were held today” game throughout the election cycle, then appear shocked and amazed that they’re on the losing side when the actual elections take place.
Today is no different.
A former Republican congressman narrowly beat his Democratic rival early Wednesday to fill the House seat once held by jailed Randy “Duke” Cunningham, one of several contests in eight states closely watched as a possible early barometer of next fall’s vote.
Republican Brian Bilbray emerged victorious after a costly and contentious special election race against Democrat Francine Busby, a local school board member.
Nevermind that they suddenly consider 50-45 a “narrow” victory.
But just a couple of months ago, the MSM was seeing a different outcome:
With potential votes split between 14 Republican candidates in the 50th District congressional race, the front-runner apparently continues to be Democrat Francine Busby—- one of two Democrats vying for the seat, according to poll results released Monday by El Cajon-based Datamar, Inc.
Asked who they would vote for if the election were held today, respondents’ ranked the top seven candidates as follows:
- Cardiff School Board member Francine Busby —- 36 percent
- Republican and former congressman Brian Bilbray —- 11.7 percent
But don’t expect Katie Couric or Matt Lauer to herald this and other Republican victories anytime soon. They’ll likely focus on bogus stories of disenfranchisement or widescale genocide on Democrat voters and small puppies.
