Damn: Barney Frank 49, Sean Bielat 37

posted at 6:43 pm on October 21, 2010 by Allahpundit

Not a disastrous poll — there are still 12 percent undecided — but after news broke about Frank having to loan himself money, I was hoping/thinking it’d be within single digits. Not yet, and time’s running out:

“Barney Frank is holding a 12-point lead, and in a tough election year for Democrats that’s a comfortable lead going into the final two weeks of the election,” Eyewitness News political analyst Joe Fleming said. “It all depends on if Sean Bielat can grab some momentum to close that gap.”…

Both men are doing well among members of their respective parties, with Frank backed by 80 percent of Democrats and Bielat by 92 percent of Republicans. “Barney’s got a real strong base there, and that’s really propelling him right now” in the heavily Democratic 4th, Fleming said.

Among independents, Bielat is beating Frank by 44 percent to 35 percent, with another 17 percent still undecided. But Bielat will need to win unaffiliated voters by a much bigger margin in order to defeat Frank, Fleming said…

WPRI has offered to host a prime-time debate between Frank and Bielat focused on issues of concern to voters in Bristol County, Mass. Both campaigns originally agreed in principle to participate, but Frank’s campaign later changed its mind, citing scheduling issues.

The killer demographic: As usual, it’s the gender gap. Bielat’s actually beating Frank among men, 45.2/42.6; among women he trails … 54.7 to 30.2. Unless he can put a giant dent in that in the next 12 days, I don’t know how he gets to 51 percent.

Here’s the new Bielat ad from Ladd “Dale Peterson” Ehlinger; Ace was in the studio while it was being filmed, but that’s not him playing Barney — or so he claims. The concept is cute, but I’m not sure how much it does to advance the ball, especially with women. The middle section, with dancing and Frank soundbites and text rushing by, is hard to keep track of.

The ad is not that good. It only makes sense to people who are already aware of Frank’s history with Fannie and Freddie. Anyone who is not would wonder WTF it is about.

Well if Bawney wins maybe he won’t be holding on to his seat for too long. Seem Congressman Issa would like to have a little talk with him regarding a few matters.

We will make big gains on Nov 2….but it’s just the beginning!

lorien1973 on October 21, 2010 at 6:52 PM

Something to keep in mind here, by the way: Frank won in 2008 with 68% of the vote. His opponent got just 25% of the vote. So we’ve chipped away a bit though obviously not as much as hoped.

amerpundit on October 21, 2010 at 6:52 PM

…In other news, Mass General has received an influx of braindead patients….around 49%.

HornetSting on October 21, 2010 at 6:53 PM

TCJ had the race earlier today at:

Frank: 46%

Bielat: 35%

Undec: 19%

Pretty close result in both polls. I would say Frank is going to win but not by a huge double digit margin-probably somewhere around 9-10% because of increased GOP turnout.

technopeasant on October 21, 2010 at 6:53 PM

The killer demographic: As usual, it’s the gender gap. Bielat’s actually beating Frank among men, 45.2/42.6; among women he trails … 54.7 to 30.2.

Further evidence that the decision to grant women the right to vote was probably a mistake.

I’m only mostly kidding.

Midas on October 21, 2010 at 6:53 PM

Has Bielat hit Barney on his ‘roll the dice’ moment, followed by a graphic showing current/projected costs to bail out Fannie and Freddie?

That is what ticks me off the most about Bawney. It should be placed firmly around his neck.

This ad did not impress me at all.

GnuBreed on October 21, 2010 at 6:53 PM

I guess this shows its just not conservative women candidates who have the gender gap problem. I just don’t get these women sometimes..

davek70 on October 21, 2010 at 6:53 PM

If you go to the link, this poll was conducted by the TV station, using a polling group no one has heard of (I assume they are local). There isn’t any information about the breakdown of the “numbers” – that is, the R/D/I data. Until we know what that is, we have to assume that this poll isn’t a reliable indicator of how this race will turn out.

Remember, the Dems are going to do EVERYTHING in their power to try and demoralize Conservatives and Independents. This is the same district that went for Scott Brown over Coakley, and people on the ground say that the same kind of feeling is in the air there.

TeresainFortWorth on October 21, 2010 at 6:53 PM

yes and Martha Coakley was beating Brown 15% using traditional polling measures for the area.

rob verdi on October 21, 2010 at 6:54 PM

Oh, by the way, the ad in its present form is a waste of time and money.

amerpundit on October 21, 2010 at 6:54 PM

Well who did they poll? Didn’t his district go red with Brown?

How could his constiuents re elect the guy who had the most to do with Fannie and Freddie? How?

Chris of Rights on October 21, 2010 at 6:55 PM

Don’t know how valid of poll of 400 people by phone would be. Obviously Barney’s got a better poll – with horrendous results – from somewhere else. Otherwise why would Barney put $200K OF HIS OWN MONEY into his re-election?

It’s actually more like a deathknell for the country.

If Dems aren’t in single digits after all we’ve seen for the last 4 years, then there are truly, truly more than enough brain-dead simpletons out there that have fully adopted the leftist BS – enough to prevent any attempt to ever roll it back.

It was just a loan – the campaign will pay him back with some money that will be ‘donated’ to his campaign by unions/Fannie/Freddie – right after he makes sure they’re funding from *our* tax dollars is increased.

Midas on October 21, 2010 at 6:58 PM

To this day, a surprisingly large number of people don’t know how central Barney Frank was to the financial mess we’re all in.

Buck up…racist Jim Clyburn may be in trouble.

Consider this…as of June 30, Jim Clyburn had raised $2,556,676 (69% from PACs, 31% from individuals, 0% self funded). I assure you, the Democrats will provide more if needed. As of September 30, Jim Pratt has raised $18,712 (92% from individuals, and 0% from PACs, 8%+ self funded), and he is polling 46%

I have no way to know where this person got that poll number from, but The Other McCain has a link to it at the bottom of his Nikki Haley update.

Are you ready for a despicable Dem attack in PA? This email came from the Toomey campaign to demonstrate how low the Rats will go.

Disheartening and despicable news comes from Bucks County, PA today as the Allentown Morning Call newspaper reveals that the Democratic Party has taken to frightening and intimidating citizens – more specifically, Pennsylvania seniors – to win elections this year.

Under the letterhead of the fictitious “Pennsylvania Voter Assistance Office,” the Bucks County Democratic Party has blasted written correspondence to voters warning that their ability to vote in November could be threatened: “By failing to return the enclosed documents, you may be placing your ability to participate in this year’s general election at risk.”

I think Brown barely won Frank’s district. He got 60-40 in Jeff Perry’s district and the two next to NH. Those are the three that the GOP should concentrate on. Bielat has to deal with rich, liberal suburbs that are hard to overcome.

SouthernGent on October 21, 2010 at 7:08 PM

Bad GOP candidate and the anti-Patrick vote is split. MA is too blue to overcome that.

The ad is busy and cumbersome. The groovy, hip looking Barney Frank may have the opposite effect Bielat wants within that district. Will people even remember the ad? If they do, what will they remember? That’s never a good thing for a political ad.

Still, 12 points down is pretty awesome.

Allahpundit on October 21, 2010 at 7:02 PM

Correct. No fewer than 14 polls of the Brown/Coakley race were published in the final two weeks of the campaign. According to RCP, there has been exactly one poll published on the Frank/Bielat race.

Polling a gerrymandered House district is intrinsically more difficult than polling statewide. Some of the data in this poll is from 10/14 (e.g., a week old), and the Bielat campaign has only recently begun TV advertising in the Boston market. Etc., etc.

Caveat emptor.

Exit question: What was the total number of independent women surveyed in the WPRI poll?

Hmmmm. I’d have to disagree, since the countries founding, men have been, for the most part, a majority of the governing bodies. In the end, they make the decisions.

If we’re referring to welfare, and such, as to pertaining to womens votes…then tell the men to get home, get a job, and support their families. Of course women left with kids are going to support the party that supports them. Change the thinking, and empower these women, and show them a better way, and the voting women might vote differently.

I have never been anything but a conservative, and my argument might be lame, but your saying all women voting would bring about communism….is lame as well.

You do realize this is the same blame game people play with race? So, do you feel the same way about certain skin colors, i.e., superiority, as you imply about gender?

bielat has to win. if scotty B can win that district, bielat can too.

ted c on October 21, 2010 at 7:36 PM

When in doubt, I’m going to trust Gallup and Rasmussen’s decisions regarding likely voter models. I do think that all the pollsters are to some degree throwing darts at a dart board for this election season. However, I still trust their analysis over mine or any other self-identified “Poll analyst”.

Why?

Gallup and Rasmussen are commercial enterprises. They make money off their polls. They make lots of money off their likely voter polls. They’re only going to make money as long as there is reason to believe the polls are accurate.

If the weightings were as screwed up as this person seems to think, Gallup would lose a lot of money in future election cycles.

Now, there is definitely “cheating” in polls. But that tends to be the openly partisan pollsters, as DKos found earlier in the year. Gallup is not partisan and doesn’t want to lose half their market by appearing as such.

In other words…ignore the article on DU and Kos.

Chris of Rights on October 21, 2010 at 7:36 PM

Some seem to forget, this district is moonbat central, scientifically gerrymandered from the bluest of the blue districts of the bluest state of the union.

Bielat’s actually beating Frank among men, 45.2/42.6; among women he trails … 54.7 to 30.2.

Bielat’s actually beating Frank among men, 45.2/42.6; among women he trails … 54.7 to 30.2. Unless he can put a giant dent in that in the next 12 days, I don’t know how he gets to 51 percent.

Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann and the rest of the Mama Grizzlies have done their part during this election season.

Now we need all of the red-blooded patriotic MEN in Massachusetts to step up to the plate to make the final sale.

Every MAN in Massachusetts needs to spend the next 12 days talking to their mothers, sisters, wives, girlfriends and any other female voter they know to convince the women of MA-4 to vote for Sean Bieltat.

Educate, persuade, encourage, beg, bribe, wine/dine…Do whatever is necessary to get the Ladies of Massachusetts to vote properly!

I know you guys can accomplish this mission! Now get to work! Thie rest of the country is counting on you!

Ace doesn’t believe the poll.

Gallup and Rasmussen are commercial enterprises.

It’s not Gallup or Rasmussen.

It’s a local TV station poll carried out by Fleming & Associates of Cumberland, Rhode Island.

Yes, and it’s Schadenfreude-tastic that Frank is having to spend some of his own money on the campaign.

I admit a certain sense of… fiendish glee, when pondering how much Mr. Frank is going to have to spend on lawyers, when Mr. Issa starts asking some pretty tough questions.

I’m afraid I don’t believe this poll. Barney Frank loaned his campaign 200 grand because he’s 12 points ahead? In an election 12 points might as well be 100 points. It’s huge. It’s like the Coons/O’Donnell race. Marxist Coons came out this morning to extend ALL the Bush tax cuts — even for the “evil” rich — because he’s 11-20 points ahead? I don’t think so. O’Donnell may not win, but she will come closer than any of us think, or Coons wouldn’t be supporting the tax cuts.

Unlike you and Midas, I don’t play the gender war games. I lay the blame on the individual(s). Basically, what you’re saying is that women are inherently incapable of making good decisions. I know all too well there are many people who believe that, but it’s malarkey.

You do realize this is the same blame game people play with race? So, do you feel the same way about certain skin colors, i.e., superiority, as you imply about gender?

conservative pilgrim on October 21, 2010 at 7:35 PM

Gabe is talking about women as a group average, not as through they all vote that way. You may not like it, but the statistics don’t lie.

That’s quite some generalizations and stereotyping: Indict all women, because a large amount vote in male liberals. Following your logic, do you blame certain ethnic groups for our economic mess as well?

conservative pilgrim on October 21, 2010 at 7:47 PM

Barneys margin of victory is one of those early “tells” as to how bad it will be for the democrats.
I would imagine anything in single digits portends a long night for Obama & Co.
