Daily Kos predicts Wendy Davis win, statewide Democrat sweep in Texas


It’s the kind of headline that’s so wrong you’d think it had come from Vox, but it’s actually the same old tricks from the folks at Daily Kos, whom managed to fit in the plea, “Please chip in $3 today to help Wendy Davis turn Texas blue” not once but twice in the article.

@dailykos Huh? @GregAbbott_TX has a 8-12 point lead. http://t.co/SYDoKIoKhP wake up over there.

That’s true; the latest aggregate numbers from Real Clear Politics give Abbott at 12-point lead.

Onion headline? RT @dailykos: Wendy Davis will break the status quo in Texas. Democrats will win statewide.

@JenJenMA @SkidWillie @dailykos Are you sure that wasn't an SNL skit?

Nice shameless plug for $$ at the end of your article, @dailykos. Way to prostitute yourself, yet again. #AbortionBarbie _won't_ win. 🙂
