Video: Why is Chris Coons running attack ads against O’Donnell?

posted at 6:51 pm on October 22, 2010 by Allahpundit

Via Ben Smith, I thought for sure we’d get a bunch of new polls on this race this week but it’s been eight days since Rasmussen reported an 11-point lead. The fact that he’s running an ad isn’t all that interesting — he’s got to spend his money on something, after all — but if this race is in the bag, why is he also reversing course on ending the Bush tax cuts?

“I am committed to extending the Bush tax cuts for 98 percent of Americans for everybody making up to $250,000, but I would extend them for everyone,” the Democratic candidate for Delaware’s Senate seat told me on “GMA.”

“I’d be willing to extend them for several years for all Americans, of whatever income if that also allows us to reach a bipartisan compromise that makes real progress in offering tax relief to small and medium businesses, to the home office exception, to research and development,” he said.

That contradicts President Obama’s position and Coons’ own campaign website, which states “High-Income Bush Tax Cuts Should Expire on Schedule.”

Her big attack on him thus far has been for raising taxes; evidently, it’s effective enough even in big blue Delaware to have this guy suddenly pulling a volte-face. Hmmmm.

Two ads for you, actually, the first from Coons and the second O’Donnell’s new one. Interesting that he’s decided to attack here instead of pushing a more positive “Chris Coons loves apple pie and puppies” message. No doubt he’s worried about turnout, and let’s face it: He’s much more likely to get liberals excited by bashing O’Donnell than by pushing his own vaporous appeal.

I’ve heard that the ads leak over into Pennsylvania, where Sestak has been helped by the image of conservative candidates being loony.

Not sure if it’s true but that’s what I’ve heard.

Ah: Delaware is served by the Philadelphia TV market. And two of the three top stations serve Philly as well.

As Rush has stated, this race is much closer than what is reported. If dems turnout is low, we are looking at an upset.

True, but at this point in the race, being double digits ahead in the polls, isn’t it still smarter to elevate yourself above the race in that “i like puppies and apple pie” sort of way?

capejasmine on October 22, 2010 at 7:05 PM

If COD keeps on message attacking Coons voting record, then she just might have a chance of winning.

Kini on October 22, 2010 at 7:07 PM

Two possibilities:

(1)Some Secret Magic Poll has them much closer than we are lead to believe;

(2)This is the fake competitive race that the Dems win and use as a veil/smoke screen/narrative to pretend they were just not decimated (ok, maybe this and a few other races, like Barney Frank and, G-d forbid, Boxer.

Whatever. I’m still puzzled that DE is portrayed as being as liberal as it is. Is it simply possible that, like here in NY (but only more so because the state is so small), non-lefties/Dems stay on the sidelines and don’t bother voting because it’s usually hopeless? Why would DE be so much more liberal than either NJ or MD? It’s not Berkeley…

ParisParamus on October 22, 2010 at 7:07 PM

ParisParamus on October 22, 2010 at 7:07 PM

It’s not. The pro-Castle side has built the state up to be a little more liberal than it really is.

alwaysfiredup on October 22, 2010 at 7:09 PM

The big headache for politicians and pollsters right now is that they have no idea whether their turnout models are correct or not. I suspect the unweighted numbers are giving the Dems the shakes and amazing the Repubs, but no one knows how to adjust them. In fact, no one is even sure if they should be adjusted.

Hence the Dems try to apply the old turnout weightings and claim that all is well (or at least manageably bad) and the Repubs are saying that we’re heading for a big win. And some are saying forget the old models, this is going to be a tsunami like in ’94 — that is 1894.

And Coons doesn’t know either and so, he might as well play it safe and attack, attack, attack since he has the money to do so.

PackerBronco on October 22, 2010 at 7:10 PM

Does Chris Coons have a fully-functioning human brain?

Sounds pretty mousy to me.

Former Gov Pete Dupont wrote an op-ed today endorsing Christine O’Donnell. That could be a reason. I think actually that should be the highlight of the thread and not Coons ad, or AP would you like that knowledge to be buried?

technopeasant on October 22, 2010 at 7:14 PM

Some perspective:

The last Class I GOP senator from Delaware was Bill Roth. Fiscal conservative but anti-Second Amendment. Also had a penchant for securing federal pork.

The last Class II GOP senator was J. Caleb Boggs. He was actually described as a “militant” environmentalist by Robert Byrd.

amerpundit on October 22, 2010 at 7:15 PM

I saw Rasmussen on Fox the other night and he emphatically declared O’Donnell had not shot, the race was over. I trust him, yet at the same time I’m curious why the Democrats are focusing so much on this one race which is supposedly locked up.

I’m telling you all. I can’t find anyone in my family or circle of friends who is against Christine O’Donnell. I’ve talked to about 35 people in my personal circles. Everyone is pissed at the Democrat’s swindle against America. Several of them consider them selves Democrats.

Christine would do well to keep the relationship of Coons as tight and under the wing of Obama, Pelosi, and Ried. She will win.

Harry Reid’s PET says it all. All of the trash talking distorting reality means nothing when Harry (the war is lost) Reid loves you. Two more years of Reid’s leadership and we are in deep trouble and Coons is his rubber stamp. Not sure what we get with O’Donnell, but damn sure what we get with Coons.

That would be the GOP’s fault my friend – for conceding the “whacko” attacks to the Dims.

The fact is – they don’t come any more “whacko” than Chris Coons and Sestack.

So that is a GOP corporate problem – not knowing how to run proper ads.

visions on October 22, 2010 at 7:50 PM

It’s going to be interesting to see if the electoral polls pan out this year. They’ve been reasonably accurate in the past — and the biggest reason for that is that they aren’t worth spit if they aren’t accurately predictive. Polling organizations have to maintain a reputation if they want to keep their customers.

Issue polls are never tested directly in this way, which is why we should categorically have no confidence in them, unless they establish a trend over time that tracks with the occasional real-world tests like state ballot initiatives.

All polls conducted by random telephone call are inherently biased toward the concentrated urban areas, but the unrepresentative political blueness of those areas is not necessarily compensated for in the data-norming process used by the typical polling organization. The political sentiments that make people vote “blue” are routinely overrepresented in issue polls, simply because of how they are conducted. In electoral polls, pollsters have tried harder to get an accurate sense of what voters really, truly think and intend, and in what percentages. To take two good examples, they don’t mistake the blue sentiments of the megalopolis in New York or California as representative of how voters will go in the congressional elections of the red counties Upstate, or in California’s rural valleys.

But this is a really weird year. The self-appointed cognitive elite of our society, along with their narrative, are disinitegrating from within. It’s not out of the realm of possibility at all that most of the polling organizations out there are satisfied to get results they like, rather than pushing to get results that are accurately predictive.

Rush Limbaugh has already said the current polls are simply wrong. I don’t think we know that yet, but I do think this: there is NO poll out there that we can place high confidence in. We’ll know how well the polls did after 2 November. I don’t think much of anything is in a steady-state mode in this campaign.

I do not like the use of the term “Independent Voice” in a campaign ad. (O’Connell ad).

Ive been phonebanking in Missouri since August in an urban area and most people don’t answer and if they do they say they are Democrats. It used to be when I called that the Democrats would harangue me about calling for the GOP. But now when I get the question “Is this the Republican Party?”, an affirmative answer now receives a response like “I’m gonna tell you what I think. I hate Roy Blunt. I hate Robin Carnahan. But I have faith that some of these other new Republicans might knock a little sense into Blunt. There’s no knocking sense into Carnahan. So I’m voting for Blunt.”

This race doesn’t have the feel of a done deal for Coons. The amount of attention it gets really sounds like a last ditch desperate mad dash to get some traction by Coons et al. Also, Coons ad actually invites a response from O’Donnell saying that Coons says some really wacko things. Dunno if it’s a trap, but it just seems like carelessness.

O’Donnell needs to get Coons to react. The more he talks, the more he stumbles.

Chris Coons gives off more of an “I like my stewed puppies covered in apple pie” vibe. The guy’s “optic appeal” is nil to negative.
The one really good attack ad on Coons, which was produced by “Friends of Christine O’Donnell” (if I recall correctly), portrayed Coons and his record as a big train wreck using B&W shots of fast moving steam trains that culminated in a train wreck. I’ve only seen it once, and that was here in Sussex County, the southernmost of Delaware’s three counties and the one that tends to vote in favor of the GOP. I don’t understand why it hasn’t been aired more.

As for DE Senate race ads “leaking over” to PA and MD and affecting races there, the TV stations on which the ads are broadcast are in those states. To attribute any softening of GOP candidates’ support in PA and MD to the DE race ranks right up there with Danny Glover’s assertion that global warming caused the earthquake in Haiti, IMHO.

So you would rather help a Marxist, America-destroying slug into power, enabling Obumbler’s mission of economic destruction? Shame on you pathetic fakes – you would rather let the Marxists tear apart our country than shutup and allow a conservative to slide into office!

You ‘concerned Republicans’, RINOs, and outright troll-boyz are pathetically screwed up! I hope you enjoy our North Korea-like economy by the time you socialist losers and your boy-King get your wish.

It’s all about the turnout. Coons is trying to motivate his supporters to go vote. They may indicate their support on the phones, but that doesnt mean they’ll show up at the polls; and COD supporters are surely more motivated than Coons’s. So the ads are there to close the enthusiasm gap, and to get them to go vote.

Odd how all the ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICANS ‘concerned Republicans’ on this site still stick a knife in COD’s back every chance they get. What is it with you back-stabbing RINOs?

I’VE CORRECTED IT FOR YOU COZ IT’S NOT REALLY TRUE.

Only the Peggy Noonan and Karl Rove types love to see COD’s loss!

YOU HAVE ONE HERE WHO REALLY BELIEVES IN COD AND ALL NEW REPUBLICAN AND TEA PARTY CANDIDATES!

Coons looks like Mr. Magoo in that picture. Will COD voters be allowed to wear Bewitched T shirts to the polls.

Allah, don’t bait the O’Donnell fans. It’s cruel, and will only get their hopes crushed when she loses by 10+ points in a few days.

You’re wrong. I think she’s going to win this thing, but she’s certainly not going to lose by 10 points or more. And all the people whining about what’s wrong with O’Donnell should give her credit for stepping up and running in a tough environment. If she wins, it will be because she deserved it.
