This will not be the year for democrat/progressives like the 79-year-old Dianne Feinstein to do well. Seeking a 5th term in the United States Senate, the voters look to the highly more qualified Elizabeth Emken (R-CA) to defeat her.
Listen to her views on wanting more gun control following the Aurora, Colorado tragedy, the same song after any shooting.
Elizabeth served in management, financial analysis, and corporate operations at IBM. As an efficiency and cost cutting expert, Elizabeth utilized activity-based cost analyses to identify administrative savings across IBM U.S. , helping streamline operations, eliminate waste, and save the company millions of dollars.
Elizabeth graduated from UCLA in 1984 with degrees in Economics and Political Science. Her studies included course work at Cambridge University, where she focused on political and economic issues in China and the Middle East.
Since the times of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, when the economy has been in the tanks a the voters are out of work, the twenty percent undecided voters break away from the incumbent and in Feinstein’s case wrong-headed policies of raising taxes, supporting Obama Care, and Environmental issues.
Elizabeth Emken, the right woman, the right person, at the right time to help incoming fiscally Conservative Republicans take back the United States Senate and work immediately to undue the apocalyptic mess created by the current administration.
A new Field Poll just released this morning brings news that California’s Sen. Dianne Feinstein is — how can we put this in a liberal kind of way? — approved by 41% of voters who want to see her reelected next year.
Unfortunately for her, more voters (fully 44%) disapprove of her continued employment in the U.S. Senate after 2012.
In blue California that makes for about a magnitude 5.2 quake.
The same poll finds that only 41% approve of Feinstein’s job in Washington, while 39% disapprove.
That 41 approval number is the lowest the former mayor has ever had in her 20 years of no longer really living in California.
Another recent Field Poll showed many Californians are falling out of love with the teleprompter guy from Chicago. His California approval has slid below 50% for the first time ever, down to 46%.
That’s a decline of about two points per month recently.
Is his slide now corroding the election prospects of even such party stalwarts as Feinstein?
Add to that the overall — how can we say this in a polite way? — disgust with the United States Congress (nine out of every 100 Californians now approve of those guys) and this could spell t-r-o-u-b-l-e for Democrats. They or independent allies need to lose only six seats to turn the Senate over to those people that Vice President Joe “#%$&*(@” Biden politely calls “barbarians.”
Democrats next year are defending two-thirds of the 33 Senate seats on state ballots. Good luck with that at 9% unemployment.
