Abstract

Chris Gilson looks at the best in political blogging from the Beltway and across the States. Elections this week Tuesday sees elections across much of the U.S., at state and local level, with the most attention focused on the New Jersey and Virginia gubernatorial elections, as well as the New York Mayoral election. In the lead up to the vote in New York, Democrat Bill de Blasio enjoyed a commanding poll lead, looking certain to win. On Saturday, Via Meadia looked at why we should fear de Blasio – not because he is likely to try and raise taxes on the rich, but because he is likely to do little to address the potential decline of the middle classes in the city once the Federal Reserve Bank’s policy of quantitative easing begins to come to an end. American Thinker on the other hand, is concerned that de Blasio is looking the other way on New York’s crime problems. After de Blasio is elected, The Atlantic looks at his ‘biracial cool’, while the New Yorker says that his populist campaign message, which was so effective, was a reaction to a changed political environment.
