What Do the Election Results Mean?

On October 31, 2014, in Politics, by An American

The Conservative Breakfast Group (CBG) will discuss the results of the 2014 gubernatorial election at our November 6 meeting. Will the Republicans gain control of the Senate? Will Bill Tilghman manage to unseat Andy Harris? Do the polls mean anything?

Bing has entered the election prediction business. They predict that Larry Hogan has less than a 1% chance of winning. This despite the fact his opponent led Maryland’s failed effort to build a health insurance web site, and the fact that the O’Malley/Brown administration has presided over a dismal economic record (BLS statistics show that employment growth in Maryland is 5th worst among all 50 states.)

Bing also predicts that Bill Tilghman has less than a 1% chance of winning. In fact, gerrymandering in Maryland is so thorough that all 8 incumbent US Representatives have a greater than 99% chance of winning, despite the polls that show only 14% of Americans approve of the job that Congress is doing.

How can this be? ? We would love to hear how you feel about these and other important issues highlighted by this year’s gubernatorial election.
