Brady Leads Otter, Grant Leads Sali (narrowly in Idaho races)

The Idaho Business Review and KTVP News Group commissioned a poll between October 25 and November 1, with a 4.4 point margin of error. Democrat Jerry Brady leads Republican Butch Otter 41 percent to 36%. But the poll finds 20 pecent of all Idahoans are still undecided.

I wonder if a lot of the many undecided voters are strong conservatives disillusioned with the GOP's stands on immigration and trade?

This poll, as most I've seen this election cycle, is crap.

This looks bad, although I don't see the 'Rat candidates actually winning either of these races.

After the election, it is possible that a lot of polling firms are going to be rethinking their methods.

You may be right about that.

Unless some story on Otter broke that I'm not aware of, I can't see him losing 5 points in Idaho from previous polls. I also have trouble digesting 20% still undecided four days out. I think it's safe to say, without this poll, that Idaho has a couple of close races.

Larry Grant's has lied shamelessly. And the Idaho press has been completely complicit in the total misrepresentation of both candidates. But they will get their comeuppance on Tuesday.

And Otter will win comfortably.

This is the second lying poll about this congressional race that the Democrat Media has tried to foist in this election cycle.

Total BS.

It's a gubernatorial, not Congressional, race. And Mason-Dixon showed a dead heat on it last week.

Who's that in the photo? It's not Butch Otter unless it was taken some 30 years ago before a face transplant...

Ohh, Tim Matheson right? Hehe. I get it now. I haven't seen Animal House in about 20 years so it didn't click.

They are referencing a gubernatorial race AND a congressional race. Look again.

Both are phony numbers, from a source that has published phony numbers before in this election cycle.

Both Otter and Sali will win.

You look again. My reply was on the Gov race, which you then replied to.

Ah. Not allowed to change the subject. I see. Whatever.

In any case, both Republicans will win.

I don't know about the Governor's race, it's probably a bunch of bunk. I don't think Otter will lose.

As for the House race, if anything, it's the opposite. I know several folks from Idaho, and some of them HATE Sali. It basically, they tell me this: He's Republican version of Barbra Boxer, i.e. shrill, arrogant and completely convinced of his own superiority. Keep in mind he won the primary with under 30% of the vote. I still think he'll win, (if not, we are completely screwed) but he'll all but certainly have a primary challenge.

Good question.

Of course, that still is from "Fletch" and not "Animal House." Matheson played a rather nasty villain in this one, a far cry from his Otter character in AH. ;-)

Yes, but I couldn't fins a clear still of him from AH, so I figured I'd use that one instead.

I wonder how many pseudo Conservatives are so busy whining about the 30% of the glass that is empty they forget the 70% of the glass that is full.

Free Trade IS a Conservative value. Protectionism is Big State Socialist value. Economic Isolationists should quit claiming to be Conservatives. There is NOTHING at all Conservative about their "Lets massively grow the Goverment because we Dinocons are terrified of anyone outside our own trailer parks" dogmas

Hey, just as long as it wasn't a pic of Joe Don Baker. ;-)

Naah, actually I like JDB, he certainly did justice to (and got the thumbs up from) the man he portrayed in "Walking Tall", Sheriff Buford Pusser, TN's most famous lawman. :-D

Well Otter and Sali did win. There were a few victories for common sense Tues. Now to find some national communicator to speak for a real Conserv BASE and tell the voters what it stands for. And please, as one wag wrote, no more bridge building RINO's.
