Rush: Media in 'Panic' Over GOP Lead

By    |   Saturday, 01 November 2014 11:54 AM EDT

The "drive-by media" and Democrats are in a panic over a new Associated Press election research team report that says Republicans have a 10 point lead in early ballots cast so far for Tuesday's election, talk show host Rush Limbaugh said Friday.

"The Democrats are making absolute fools of themselves," Limbaugh said on his radio show

"The Democrat Party with Charlie Rangel, Mary Landrieu, Paul Begala, The Forehead, they are all telling us so much about where their heads are, where their minds are. They are stuck in an America 50 years ago in an attempt to avoid an election disaster."

But the data from the research team shows the GOP's double-digit lead, said Limbaugh, unlike earlier polls, which he says aimed "to make public opinion, to shape it."

Already, he pointed out, independents have cast about a quarter of the early vote total, and in Florida, the early votes already cast exceed the total votes cast early in 2010, the last midterm election.

And as a result, Limbaugh said, "everywhere you look in the 'drive-by media' today you just see the word 'panic.'"

The exact word may not be used, but "panic is all over the headline, it's all over the story," he commented.

The New York Times' Upshot, a constantly updated model, showed late Saturday morning  that there was a 71 percent likelihood the GOP would win the Senate. The Washington Post's Election Lab, meanwhile, pegged the GOP's chances at 95 percent as of Saturday morning. 

In addition, Nate Silver's FiveThirtyEight blog gave Republicans a 68.5 percent chance of taking over. All three indices showed an increased chance for the GOP compared to Thursday's numbers.

"So you can see, even if you want to dispute the actual raw numbers, you can look at the trend and see which way the trend is going," said Limbaugh.

And such numbers have "got to stun the Democratic Party," said Limbaugh, "That just has to have 'em bamboozled," as early voting is "something they own, they think, the Hispanic vote, and like they think they own the black vote."
