Senate Race Remains a Toss-Up

Menendez currently has a 2% lead over State Sen. Tom Kean in the most recent poll. The advertising hasn't even begun to kick in however, which is when the polls really begin to matter. Will we see some mudslinging?

The Republicans would be fools to not throw some mud to start off the race. They need to establish that Menendez is associated with politics as usual, and even cite his ties to Kay LiCausi.

What Is Bill Frist Thinking?

Bill Frist recently came out against the bill sponsored by Senator Sam Brownback (R-KS) that would put in place a guest worker program from immigrants. The bill would also put in place steps that immigrants could follow to attain citizenship. However, Bill Frist and some conservative allies in the House have labled the bill as "amnesty."

Good luck with that cause. A new poll showed that 79% of Americans favor a guest worker program. Bill Frist has little chance already of even getting a bid from his party to be president, let a lone winning a general election. He's not going to improve his chances by moving farther to the right.

Cussing Poll

Apparently Americans don't swear as much as I thought they did, or at least they're embarassed too embarassed about their tendencies to be honest with pollsters.

Nevertheless, only 74% of adults say that they encounter profanity in public frequently or occassionally. That's not too surprising, as a fair portion of middle age or elderly adults have little interaction with the public outside of work. But what sticks out to me is the fact that only 8% of those polled admitted to using the F-word several times a day. I would be more likely to believe that 8% of the U.S. population uses the word several times per hour.
