Jaw-Dropping Study Claims Large Numbers of Non-Citizens Vote in U.S.

nationalreview.com — So this study's claim is pretty eye-opening... Our data comes from the Cooperative Congressional Election Study (CCES). Its large number of observations (32,800 in 2008 and 55,400 in 2010) provide sufficient samples of the non-immigrant sub-population, with 339 non-citizen respondents in 2008 and 489 in 2010.

The Good, Bad, and Good News for Georgia Republicans

nationalreview.com — I expected quite a few readers to object to this section of the Jolt, but so far it's only a few: Voter Fraud: How a Legitimate Concern Turns Into Activists' Favorite Excuse Voter fraud, and the fear that nefarious partisan types taint our elections by voting more than once, is a legitimate fear.

SPOILER ALERT: This is How the Governors' Races Turn Out... Well, Some of Them.

nationalreview.com — Here's what happens when we apply Sean Trende's chart to the big governor's races this year, using the current RealClearPolitics averages, and accounting for the fact that we're now 12 days from Election Day. Almost all of the big governor's races are very, very, very close.

nationalreview.com — Whoa. Martha "Choke-ly" indeed! Republican Charlie Baker has opened up a 9-point lead over Democrat Martha Coakley, 45 percent to 36 percent, according to a new Globe poll that depicts a far more comfortable advantage than either candidate for governor has enjoyed in months. The poll reflects an October surge in independent voters toward Baker's column.

SPOILER ALERT: This is How the Midterm Elections Turn Out

nationalreview.com — From the last Morning Jolt of the week: History Suggests Some Close Races Are Pretty Much Over Sean Trende deserves some sort of medal for this chart: He notes, "This trove of data dates back to 1998, and covers all manner of races: Senate, House, gubernatorial, and presidential."

The Nightly News' Curious Disinterest in the Midterm Elections

nationalreview.com — The Newsbusters guys chuckle at a CNBC discussion of the lack of network news coverage of the midterm elections, compared to 2006. The Media Research Center watched the network news broadcasts and counted up the news stories: "When Democrats were feeling good about their election prospects eight years ago, the CBS Evening News, NBC Nightly News, and ABC's World News aired a combined 159 campaign stories (91 full reports and another 68 stories that mentioned the campaign).

Ouch: BusinessWeek Calls Obama 'Too Cool for Crisis Management'

nationalreview.com — That is a heck of a cover image/gif, Bloomberg BusinessWeek. And probably about as bad an image as the Democrats could imagine, short of "VOTE GOP" in giant letters. Inside, the headline to Joshua Green's piece is, "Obama Is Too Cool for Crisis Management."

Come on, New Hampshire. Let's Make Sam Wang Eat a Bug.

nationalreview.com — People. Please. If Jeanne Shaheen (D) loses to Scott Brown (R) in NH-Sen, I promise to eat a bug. - Sam Wang (@SamWangPhD) August 22, 2014 CNN, out today: "A new CNN/ORC poll shows a statistical dead heat between New Hampshire Democratic Sen.

There's Good News for Oregon Republicans, But Not That Good News

nationalreview.com — Your friendly neighborhood Oregon-trotting campaign correspondent, in a piece written Tuesday night: Could Oregon governor John Kitzhaber, a three-term Democrat, lose his bid for reelection because of scandals involving his fiancée? After Kitzhaber survived a cavalcade of embarrassing and expensive failures of state government, could he lose to Republican Dennis Richardson because of the Oregon first lady's consulting business?
