Not Even with a 10 Point Poll

You may already be a winner. Are cowcatchers a legitimate campaign expense? They should be, because the National Republican Senatorial Committee just threw Jim Oberweis under the bus.

Haha, US Senate candidate Jim Oberweis just got some bad news. The Chicago Tribune is saying that ...
An official with the National Republican Senatorial Committee on Thursday declined to commit to giving money to Illinois state Sen. Jim Oberweis in his bid to oust three-term Democratic U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin.
National GOP group won't commit to helping Oberweis
It was just week ago that Oberweis was riding high on the results of a fake self-commissioned poll that had him within striking distance of sweet November victory. But, as readers of this blog are keenly aware ...
I Scream You Scream We All Scream
your LakeCountyEye quickly followed-up with the only poll that matters: the candid camera poll. A photograph of Oberweis talking to a half empty room in Algonquin went viral, and no sooner had the NRSC caught wind of this macaca moment did they pull the plug on the high flying Oberweis campaign. Coincidence? Note to ops: in winner-take-all electoral politics, there are no coincidences.

Operatives are advised to throw away those useless bookmarks. Some websites -- Real Clear Politics, FiveThirtyEight, even the Princeton Election Consortium, for instance -- merely track the opinions. But how many lead the opinions?
