The possibility, reported Monday in the Daily News, that Deputy City Comptroller Simcha Felder could leave the Democratic Party to run for a new Brooklyn congressional district on the Republican line has been met so far with little more than silence.
Felder reportedly refused to comment on reports that at a meeting with Republican leaders, he said he’d be willing to run on the GOP line if a district that would unite the heavily Orthodox Jewish areas of Midwood and Borough Park is created. Currently, these areas are split among several congressional districts.

The memo, written by pollster Geoff Garin for Democratic policymaker Sen. Chuck Schumer (N.Y.), argues that while the 2010 election was a referendum dominated by anti-tax Tea Party rage against Democratic leadership, the 2012 election will be different because Republicans now share control of the federal government and their policies are increasingly seen as favoring the rich.

I would also add white MARRIED women to this vanishing group of Democrats. Anyway, here’s what they have to say:
Roger Jones, Tommy Ragland and Mark Craig, Billy Bell and Jim Smith are all white male Democrats holding local elected offices – a categorization that now puts them on the endangered species list.
Men like them once ruled the Earth – or at least politics in Alabama and Madison County – but the atmosphere and the electorate have changed.
A local Democratic Party leader and three elected Democrats have their own ideas about why their numbers are dwindling. Tagging local Democrats with labels associated with the national Democratic Party’s position on issues is chief among the reasons cited.

Democrat Heidi Heitkamp reportedly leads Republican Rep. Rick Berg in the first poll of North Dakota’s contested 2012 Senate race.
But that’s not surprising, say Republicans and political observers, because the poll was commissioned by a partisan group motivated to see Heitkamp elected.
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee released a poll last week that found Heitkamp edging out Berg 47 percent to 42 percent.
Was Politico always as biased as it is now? I know it has not been around that long and that it is controlled by the Washington Post, but in the beginning it seemed to me that it tried to at least give an appearance of being impartial. Recently however, it seems like every single story that I come across from them is as blatantly in the pocket of the Democrat Party as a story from MSNBC, New York Times, ABC News… or the Washington Post for that matter.
This is interesting. Even young Muslim women are abandoning the Democrat party? Who will be left to vote for Obama besides socialists, perverts, Occupy Fill-In-The-Blankers, and race-based voters?
Saba Ahmed, the young Muslim woman from Beaverton who ran in the Democratic primary for Oregon’s 1st District congressional seat, says she has switched to the Republican Party.
From her Facebook page:
“Never thought I would see this day, but I am officially a registered REPUBLICAN. Thank you to all the Oregon Democrats for helping me realize my Conservative Potential. Looking forward to 2012 Republican Victories!”
Ahmed, who had interned for then-Gov. Ted Kulongoski and Rep. Earl Blumenauer, has been a frequent participant in Democratic events. She received less than a half-percent of the votes in last week’s primary.
Mississippi has become an even stronger oasis for Americans after last weeks elections:
Republicans appear to hold the majority in the Mississippi state House
of Representatives for the first time since Reconstruction, following
last week’s general election, a party official said on Monday.

The leader of a violent fake-identification ring that operated in 11
states pleaded guilty to racketeering and two other charges an hour
before his trial was scheduled to begin in federal court Tuesday.
Israel Cruz Millan of Raleigh, N.C., led a fake ID ring enterprise with roots in Mexico
that prosecutors say protected its lucrative turf with beatings and at
least one slaying. A trial for the man accused of that killing, alleged
former Arkansas cell leader Edy Jiminez-Oliverez, began Tuesday as
Overall, half of Canadians (52%, -8 since October) and Americans
