37th District Slaughter

BLOODyMichigan’s 37th Senate District race promises to turn out like one of those movies Mommy didn’t let you watch as a kid.

The poll paints Wayne Schmidt as an undesirable Republican candidate for the 37th district seat.  The poll of 599 likely Republican primary voters who were reached last Monday, February 10, said no to the big spender by more than 20 points, even WITH the MOE. (Margin Of Error of 4.0%) Maybe its something about Schmidt’s willingness to expand government into places where it ought not go?  Maybe its his Welfare expansion vote?  Maybe its his affinity to give Southern Michigan more tax dollars?


Greg MacMaster……………….41.57% (249)
Wayne Schmidt………………..17.36% (104)
Undecided……………………41.07% (246)
Total………………………100.00% (599)

Of course polling is only a snapshot in time, but the advantages of incumbency no longer exist, AND something else revealed itself in the polling done by the MacMaster campaign. One of the largest blocks of voters has Schmidt getting an electoral intent wedgie at about the margin of error.

Grand Traverse County (Schmidt’s home turf) favors MacMaster 34% 29%

RightMi Endorses Denver Broncos For Superbowl

File this under “just because” if you like.344px-Denver_Broncos_logo.svg

Who says politics and sport should not mix. 

OK folks.  Throw away the stats, computer generated outcome scenarios, and bookmaker 1 point over predictions.  The Sea Cow has already chosen this year’s winner, and we agree. From NBC Miami:

Buffett, a resident manatee in the aquarium at the Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota, has picked the Denver Broncos to beat the Seattle Seahawks in Sunday’s big game.

And Buffett’s prognostication shouldn’t be ignored: He’s predicted the correct Super Bowl winner for the last six years.

RIghtMi finds it hard to argue with success and a truly scientific method of prognostication.  We call it Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos beating the Seahawks by 3

Go Broncos!
