First some polling info via Dick Morris on Hannity:
- Number of districts a republican is leading the incumbent in the polls -- 54
- Number of districts with a republican within 5 points of a democrat polling under 50 -- 19
- 160 districts represented by democrats that have gone unpolled.
Brad Miller is one of those 160 that have gone unpolled.
In a normal election this would be taken as a sign of strength, but this round of elections is the first in memory that has followed two years governance through Broken Consent.
- Cap & Trade
- Trillions in a Financial Bailout for the Banks
- The Failed Stimulus
None of these had the support of the citizenry.
When Brad Miller put 1/6 of the North Carolina's economy (the state he represents) under federal influence through ObamaCare he diminished North Carolina, the state he represents.
When Brad Miller voted in favor of raising the utility rates of all North Carolinians through Cap & Trade he forgot the people he represents.
When Brad Miller voted in favor of bailing out the mega monster mega banks he forgot the people he represents while picking their pockets and never forgetting the banks.
And when Brad Miller voted in favor of the stimulus bill he forgot not only the people, but the progeny of his state while never forgetting to grow governance through stimulus.
Brad Miller's current silence is understandable in this light. He has no record to run on. None. Polling would not only bring attention to him, but to his awful record of forgetting those who he represents while lavishing the wealth of his state's citizenry on those who he does not represent.
