Go before Election Day president Barack Obama is attempting to quarterback -- West Coast offense for the Democratic Party now.
Headlining fundraisers for senators Barbara Boxer -- Prince Harry Reid.
But his presence on the left coast this close to Election Day speaks volumes but as it appears the balance of power in the US congress could very well be this.
-- in states like California Nevada and Washington now California brand new Fox News poll shows that Republican Carly Fiorina is well within striking distance of boxer.
Now the ultra level liberal incumbent sleazy former Hewlett-Packard CEO by only four points in that race.
Now Carly Fiorina will be joining us later on tonight's program with reaction -- these latest numbers.
In Nevada Rasmussen Reports shows Republican Sharon Engel has opened up an even larger lead on senate majority leader Harry Reid fifty -- 47%.
Then there's the senate race in Washington State.
-- Republican Dino Rossi continues to run in a virtual dead heat with incumbent senator Patty Murray he now trails her by a three point margin.
And here to help break down those numbers.
And much more former speaker of the house Dennis pastor and former -- -- congressman Al win guys welcome back.
-- -- you if you -- well and that I think it speaks volumes.
speaker when the president has to go to California.
Washington State and Harry -- state.
To help you don't save you know well established well entrenched incumbents does not speak volumes.
By I think that shows that they're worried that certainly who are worried he should be worried but I think the real balance of power course.
I can speak for the house I think we're going to pick up but.
-- -- probably five seats and Pennsylvania the four seats and New York we're gonna pick up probably five seasons.
In Florida a looks like we could pick up by three seats in my home state of Illinois three seats in Michigan three seats and Indiana two seats in Wisconsin two seats in Iowa I think -- start to pick up speed in the house and the senate.
And here she is Sweden by -- -- the West Coast at least now houses will be settled.
All right congressman when we now have the seventh quarter of Barack Obama's presidency and he is declined each and every quarter latest numbers now show he has the lowest approval rating since he's been in office.
Looking at the Gallup -- Are Americans is is this now becoming a referendum on him and his agenda.
Not at all as a matter of fact.
His number now.
Actually quite good at this point in the presidency they compare until I bravely would go well he compares favorably with with Reagan and what wasn't a matter of fact -- season so.
He's doing fine and I'll say what shows it.
35000 folks showed up in Ohio.
To cheer on president Barack Obama.
Whether it will -- -- -- have a big impact Rob Portman is up by double digits and John case that is up by eight points.
So you know but -- you can use it really got a lot of candidates how's that Sarah Palin's -- the vice president of the United States.
We've got a lot of very competitive house races by the way.
I wanna say to my good friend speaker we're not concede the house I expect Nancy Pelosi will continue to be the speaker is going to be -- it's going to be tough.
Democrats including bad but there are somewhat -- -- they they don't want restricted doing really well -- better.
There -- -- -- of and is there are democratic operative that Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats most importantly will be in the -- I -- -- violently -- -- you agree -- -- that the real powers in the house now.
Wagner doesn't -- the yeah.
-- I live on that point of agreement.
But Nancy Pelosi it's very interest thing mister speaker -- if you look at the numbers and you look at that the ads that are being run in this election cycle.
No Democrats run on health -- and a -- on stimulus and not run on cap and tax.
-- editing their running away from Pelosi and from Obama what does that tell us.
Well that members of congress like anybody else they don't want to have to make excuses for their leaders they don't have to tell why.
Their leaders are are on -- Vienna in a negative way and does so it's self preservation and that's the only way they had to go.
-- -- -- And haggard look if they're so anyway it Democrats are Pennsylvanian yeah that's has been an Ohio you've been on the web and nobody apparently a lot of people would like to see him.
Here's a simple question for you.
In Democrats are so proud of the health care that they passed this up front of the stimulus they passed.
-- this so proud of their association what Barack Obama Nancy Pelosi.
Why they're running away from why aren't they running on their record.
Well I just -- you -- apparently.
Obama very popular he's been to a lot at -- as effective -- people like the back.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- If if health care stimulus in capital taxes so popular can you name -- three Democrats run and on it.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- If Democrats are so Prada health care and cap and tax and the stimulus.
Why are they running -- supporting it.
Democrats are running individual Latin -- yeah exactly what but it doesn't always making yet bit.
That Democrats could -- talked about health care because it's good to Durant preexisting conditions it's good to save jobs the GM it's.
I'd rather I'm glad I got we debated that a long time ago let me ask you mr.
speaker this is important.
Hillary's pollster points out a plurality of voters say.
Obama's change has heard America on top of that another poll comes comes out.
This -- a majority of Americans say that the Tea Party can change Washington.
What how do you interpret those two polls together.
Well first of if they look at the put a -- about change I always said that that.
Go Obama promised that change you can believe -- that -- about what you believe in society.
That has gotten rid of the -- more Americans are they don't want to change their system are free enterprise system the ability for people get a head.
You know the ability hope that your kids have a better future than you did.
Of course and on the other side of the issue.
You know that's a toss up I can't get further you think Nancy Pelosi the speaker.
And the next congress.
And I don't I think even if that if I I think even at the -- of the Democrats win which I don't think they'll win I don't think Nancy please close to be speaker.
Why do you think that is out why -- so why does she -- solo she's got the lowest approval ratings of any speaker modern history.
He's also one of the strongest speakers in modern history -- The fact that you -- -- retired chairman and why -- poll numbers so low why don't people like her.
There are people who.
Have differing opinions from Nancy Pelosi they don't like the fact that she's a strong leader that she stands out she stood up one -- -- she -- it ends up but I don't in this case.
Is up against the American people they pass legislation the American people don't want.
And so the American people don't like her she's about to be fired -- -- saying that that that you're saying that's a good quality.
I'm saying I don't believe she's going to be fired Democrat and I keep their majorities in both.
-- that I should be hated so much you know if that's such a good quality by the way some liberals -- anyway guys that make their audiences.
That's it I was gonna say there aren't some audiences but that's another story I like you -- I like you to.
All right without that love that note of peace harmony love and cool buyout will say good bye guys -- -- see you -- thank you for being for the nation.
