New Poll: Katherine Harris is closing gap!!
SurveyUSA ^

Posted on 09/17/2006 5:58:24 PM PDT by cutepanda

I am surprised that nobody has noticed this poll taken by SurveyUSA on September 14th.

Nelson 53% : Harris 38%

Clearly, Harris is catching up fast. She used to be 30 points behind but in this post-primary poll, the gap has been narrowed to 15%.

Nelson is in his low 50s, he is clearly in danger. For all those Harris nonsayers, I say screw you!! If Harris keeps on campaigning, the victory is within reach!

When RINO Lincoln Chafee won his primary, all the GOP establishement signed a sigh of relief. However, a new poll to be released by Rasmussen shows the following astonishing results:

Whitehouse 51% : Chafee 43%.

Will GOP establishment pour in another $5MM to save this RHINO? Shall we say mission impossible after the conservative voters are pissed off by the blatant interference from Ms. Dole?

Go Harris! Screw you Lincoln Chafee.

In fairness, Lincoln Chafee does increase the Republican margin in the Senate if nothing else. He's otherwise worthless of course.

You go girl! :-) But she still has an uphill battle on her hands. For those of you in FL that support Katherine, go here and volunteer to help her. Without our help she will not succeed in unseating Nelson.

While I wish Ms. Harris all the best, I have NO wish to have any kind of relationship, carnal or otherwise, with Mr. Chafee.

I support Harris even though she has a lot to learn if she is going to survive politically. She put herself on the line and took a beating to do the right thing in 2000. She was ridiculed in the most banal way by the left. I hope people realize that she is exactly what we need in the Senate. She is a solid conservative and though she may be difficult to work with I don’t think that is a good reason to throw her under the train. Conservatives are way too quick to follow the lead of the left when one of their own is ridiculed and attacked long enough. The GOP needs Senate seats and should be in a position to clean house but instead they are limping along to Election Day just hoping to hold the house and senate.

Byrd, Nelson, Feinstein, Cantwell and others should be well on their way to being gone this election. Instead they are focusing on protecting Chafee who might as well not even be Republican as much as he votes with the Democrats.

The Democrats have given the GOP enough material for hundreds of killer ads and where are they? There is no honor in allowing your enemies safe passage to power.

Liddy Dole better not be short-changing CONSERVATIVES such as Santorum and Talent to fund Chafee's lost cause of a RINO parade.

That woman needs to go.

Far worse than worthless, actually. This is the RINO A-hole who has personally blocked John Bolton's confirmation as our UN ambassador.

I put no faith in any polls (and particularly one of only 500 or so potential voters), but it is encouraging to see Ms. Harris doing so well in this poll.

Same thing with Tom Kean Jr. He is a RINO but it is another person on our side of the aisle.

I think 53 - 38% is bogus. She will get a majority of the votes in November, because her position on the issues reflects majority opinion. Nelson's position(s) are the same as ultraliberal Democrats from places like Boston and San Francisco.

No chance.

Nelson has not spent one dollar, had no primary opponent, ergo, no face time and has not spent one dollar on ads. In addition, he has huge incumbent war chest.

Harris had to spend her funds to defeat a bunch of unknowns in primary.

Final; 65-31 at best.

Sorry, but true.

Well, the GOP seems to believe it can campaign against its own voters, misuse their funds, and then command their support for someone that IS a Democrat in the purest sense.

We'll see.

My own desire is to see Chafee lose.

As to the other, I'd be surprised if Harris cannot command at least 40% in Florida. Doesn't seem believable she could do less. Can she win? Well, yes, if republicans stop bickering, support her, and gets conservative Indy's onboard. We do have an advantage in Florida as it leans our way.

65-31 is a little severe, more like 56-38.

Harris is catching up fast. She used to be 30 points behind but in this post-primary poll, the gap has been narrowed to 15%.

With the exception of the 2004 Illinois Senate race, virtually every race closes as you get closer to election day. Even Bob Dole closed on Clinton in '96 although he never stood a chance of winning. She may have regained some Republican support but the lady better find a new line of work because she will be unemployed come January.

Harris will need $$$$$$$$$$ to beat Nelson and a focus on important issues like national security and terrorism.

She can beat Nelson but it won't be easy.

The President should help with her fundraising or at least send Dick Cheyney down if he can't bring himself to that.

Rasmussen:


Whitehouse 51% : Chafee 43%.

I am aware of no such recent poll. You might think dumping on Chafee somehow helps Harris, but I don't.

Think a split-the-difference between us may be more correct.

Other factors. She is hated by dems, but their choice for gov is uninspired and the minority/majority members, Corinne, Brown, Alcee Hastings, etc. have no serious opponents (thank goodness) so GOTV can be a problem for the Dems.

If Charlie Crist has it in a walkaway, then we may have some GOTV problems too.

Other problem is that it's such a target rich environment for Nelson when he starts running ads.

In fairness, Lincoln Chafee does increase the Republican margin in the Senate if nothing else. He's otherwise worthless of course.

Only if the Senate would have exactly 49 Republicans outside Chaffee's seat would control of the Senate be affected by whether Chaffee or Whitehouse wins. Given that there's no guarantee that a win by Chaffee would secure the Senate even in that case (since he might well pull a Jeffords) I see no reason why the GOP should spend money on him that could be more usefully spent elsewhere.

Of course, I have my own suspicions about what's really behind the GOP's endorsement of Chaffee, but that's another story.

"In fairness, Lincoln Chafee does increase the Republican margin in the Senate if nothing else. He's otherwise worthless of course."

The net effect of which is to allow a Republican Senate to do all the things a Democratic Senate would do, and leave Conservatives with no where to go within the existing parties. Chafee chafes me.

I agree. But, who knows, with a large turnout, she could win. FL is too red of a state for anyone with an 'R' next to their name to get beat by double digits. I think many republican voters are like me in that they will vote for Harris, but wish there was a better alternative.

And Crist isn't?

Sure, there are a lot of Republicans who will vote for Crist contentedly unaware of his disregard of some rather flagrant violations of Florida law. And there are even some who know of such things who will hold their noses and vote for him anyway. But I don't think the hardcore base is going to be exactly energized.

Go Harris! Screw you Lincoln Chafee!

You certainly know how to convince moderate Republicans to support you don't you?

I guess we all know now know why the Republican party in Florida has deserted your candidate. .

I think I posted about a week ago that Harris' poll numbers would go up. I also posted that if she reached out and did not carry a grudge she just might make it. But I have no doubt that your tirade will, if it is duplicated by the Harris Campaign, drive the numbers back down. You certainly are not helping her. It appears that you don't care about wining the fall election .. just rubbing the primary victory in.

In come from behind election a tirade like this just can't be supported. It just drives people away. Sorry, but I would not donate a penny to your campaign. If you are typical of her supporters, it is just wasting money.

OK. That is disappointing. Harris's cadeaver is not going to be reanimated based on Chafee's woes in a hostile environment. She has 38% now, and if she is lucky, she might move up to 42% by election day, if someone effectively stops letting Harris just be Harris.

You would think Pubbies would be thrilled that a RINO who supports some Bush nominations is in office in the Senate, where the real action is, in the most Dem state of the union. But no, of course not. DeWine is a RINO too, screw him as well. Heck, you can put his opponent on your radio show again. Presumably his hormone levels have declined to the point that he won't prey on your staff. Yes, I know, you are retired. In any event, there you have it.
