Richard Mourdock — Dodd’s Odds 10:1
Have you ever noticed when a male political candidate tries to combine religion, politics and women’s reproductive rights into a sentence they always end up looking pretty bad? Defending it the next day was even more ludicrous.
Joe Donnelly — Dodd’s Odds 1:1
I think he is a lock now because, er, well, that’s just what God intended.
Mike Pence — Dodd’s Odds- 3:5
A loss for him Tuesday would be mind-boggling.
John Gregg — Dodd’s Odds- 50:1
A win would trump a Dewey Beats Truman headline.
Mitt Romney — Dodd’s Odds- 5:1
In what should have been a walkover, the Republicans ended up with an ideologically wavering moderate candidate they didn’t want nor agree with who can only win if ultra-conservative right-wing fundamentalist Christians will vote en masse for someone of a different faith.
President Barack Obama — Dodd’s Odds 2:1
He has not been as successful as his ardent supporters had wished him to be and not nearly as bad as the detractors would like you to think. Two-term Presidents are historically much more productive and successful in a second term.
