    Republican Rick Scott of FL has a 29% approval rating.

    I'm surprised it's that high.

    It's the stupid conservative christians that put these sociopaths in office. They'll let him take food off their table...just as long as he signs laws attacking gays, immigrants, minorities and women needing an abortion.

    I think ultimately NY-26 is good for the Republicans. It demonstrates the need for their candidates to be able to fully explain the Ryan plan as well as the draconian impacts of Obamacare on seniors. The scare tactics by the Democrats definitely had an impact, but the truth will come out. This particular election was heavily influenced by the fraudulent "tea party" candidate, but the impact of the health care discussion cannot be minimized. Polls continue to show the deficit is important to voters, and the leadership vacuum demonstrated by the WH and Senate on this will not be ignored. I think the Republicans will be prepared for the negative campaigning and lies expected from the Democrats, and the mud will go both ways.

    Oh, like the Death Panels the Republicans lied about when Obama's health plan was being debated? And that some of them are still repeating? Those aren't scare tactics, huh? Nobody does scare tactics like Republicans, it's been their political stock-in-trade since the 1950s.

    The Democrats liked to depict the notion of a Death Panel as a committee that would adjudicate a specific case involving Grandma. We all know such a committee would not exist, which gave cover for the Democratic characterization of the Death Panel as a lie. But a government panel would exist which would decide general policy which would determine what Grandma was entitled to. That is the Death Panel, the Government deciding the rationing instead of the free market.

    Nice try socalfitness,

    Chris Lee won his seat in the general election with 73.6% of the votes.

    The results for NY26 are as follows:

    Hochul: 47%
    Corwin: 43%
    Davis: 9%

    Even if you add Corwin's and Davis's numbers together, to give you 52%, Corwin still did not perform as well as Lee who easily bested his opponent. Yes, Corwin could have possibly won, but if her winning number was still so low, obviously there was more on the voters' minds than the "R" next to her name.

    So no, it was not heavily influenced by this alleged fraudulent tea party candidate.

    I think "heavily influenced" is a fair term. The actions of the former Democrat Davis certainly influenced some votes to go from Corwin to Hochul.

    But when comparing Lee's number to the combined Corwin and Davis figure, it really pales in comparison. You can say it had some impact for the election results, but not "heavily influenced." That's overstating.

    73.6% is vastly different than 52%.
