Those morons decided not to ask about the third-strongest Republican against Hillary in the prior month’s poll!
Geez....my neighbors are idiots. I have probably the only Fred Thompson bumper stiker in all of Portland.
Now this mildly surprises me, given that Bush did not run strongly in Oregon in 2004.
One thing these SurveyUSA polls are showing us is that Hillary has very few states she can expect to win handily. She will have to compete for every single electoral vote, except maybe Illinois, Calilfornia, and New York.
Please notify me via FReepmail if you would like to be added to or taken off the Oregon Ping List.
That's only because I don't want my car to be keyed. ;o)
There was a straw poll conducted in Sun River a couple of months ago.
Obama and Edwards finished first and second, and it was very close.
Hillary was a distant third.
They don’t much cotton to her out here.
I think the reason Bush didn’t run very strongly here is that the anti-war facists turned out in droves.
That, and there were some middle of the road people who were unhappy with the war.
Outside of Portland, the state isn’t the cesspool that the city is.
As I said in my post above this one, the ‘Rats/libs here don’t much like Hillary.
Not at all. McCain has more appeal to independents than Bush (or anyone else for that matter).
Although cell phone carriers allow people to continue to use their land line phone numbers -- younger people do not give a rip. Qwest is getting left out in the cold.
I say good riddance! Qwest is corrupt from top to bottom. Their former CEO is in prison for insider trading. I know some key repair people and know workers make easy cash money tapping telephones for large law firms and insurance companies. They have been doing this for years and getting away with it. The Fibbies need to open their eyes.
Conclusion: these telephone polls are mostly skewed to the left. The only people being polled are stay at home types: elderly, disabled, unemployed and others. Productive people don't have time to answer stupid questions by polling organizations.
Well, that's a little too strong. Maybe a McCaingrinandbearit.
He's not really less conservative than the other guys in double digits, and he's got a shot at winning the general.
And he doesn't cry.
It would be very interesting to see Ron Paul thrown in the mix in Oregon polling. I’m guessing that the fruits and nuts in Oregon would give him quite a boost and that most of his support would come at the expense of some Democrat votes.
Actually, most of Oregon is pretty conservative. I live in Southern Oregon and it’s not that much different from your basic western state.
I used to live in Spokane.(Actually, I lived in Cd’A and worked in Spokane)and the whole Dry Side of WA is very conservative.
Oregon is Oregon and there is no help for it.
I lived in both Cd’A and Sandpoint, and I really loved Sandpoint a lot.
I used to work at Ski Schweitzer. I just found my old Ski Schweitzer jacket (I was a security guard, I pulled people out of ditches, jump started cars and escorted drunks out of the bar)and they let me keep it when I left. It brought back lots of good memories...
You’ll LOVE North Idaho!!
