2010 Governor's Polls

Sometime this week, Rush Limbaugh made a comment, and I am parapharsing, “in order to beat back the Obama march to socialize the United States, it is going to take  involvement, at the state level.”  I couldn’t agree more. There are 20 states that have joined together with a lawsuit against Obamacare.   Virginia has filed  a lawsuit separately.  In addition, there have been numerous lawsuits filed against the EPA Endangerment Finding which you can find referenced here and here. Sorry for linking to anything from the NYT, it is just for the company lawsuit information.

Even if the Republicans win majorities in the House, and gain a number of seats in the Senate, Obama has already taken steps for that eventuality.  He currently has 39 Czars,  will still have his administrative and cabinet level people, has put in place numerous regulatory agencies (and counting) and has all tried to render the necessity for the Congress moot.  He has no fear of the Supreme Court, and took the classless opportunity to ridicule the Justices attending his State of the Union address.  The Progressives are attempting to once again change the Campaign Finance laws, out of apparent anger over the Citizen’s United Case ruling.

In 2010 there are 36 Governors up for election/re-election.  Currently there are 26 Democrat Governors, and 24 Republican Governors.

Here are where the race’s stand,  as to the information I found today, from Rassmussen.  If you have updated information, please provide it.  In most cases, I only list those that are leading in their races.  We need as many Republican Governors as possible, just as we need as many Republican Representatives and Senators.  We can take a majority of States.
