Perhaps you should blame JD.

Perhaps we should praise JD, after all in a few months he forced McCain to take some conservative positions. Something we could not accomplish for a decade.

I’m not crazy about McCain over the POW issue - but he’s not a communist. He’s very fiscally responsible - not a horrific thing - and Hayworth is a clown.

Looks like the "Free Money Govt Money" infomercial didn't help Hayworth.

The poll is doctored. Of course McRINO would be leading among his natural constituency (Democrats) and squishes ("independents").

524 registered voters

190 Republicans

173 Democrats

161 "independents"

“Perhaps we should praise JD, after all in a few months he forced McCain to take some conservative positions. Something we could not accomplish for a decade.”

Yea, once he’s re-elected we’ll see exactly how many conservative positions he’s adopted. People never learn, and voters have to be among the most gullible people on the planet. It’s sort of how we tried to warn people during the last election that Obama’s speeches didn’t reflect his actual policies. And McCain has so many, many years on record that anyone falling for his flip-flops at this point is doing so on purpose.

Wrong. Another BS poll like the phony Daily Kos polls that Soros was running for McCain. Still a lot of McCainiac AH’s on FR.

Look, time to wake up and face facts. We can't just go around assuming that every poll that shows a result we don't like is bogus. We did that in 2008....and look how that turned out. Everybody assumed Rasmussen was in 0bama's pocket because he was showing 0bama ahead by 5% going into election day. That is, until 0bama won by 5%.

Take home message for any smart person who bothered to pay attention was that we can't just automatically assume that any poll we don't like is made up, cooked, or otherwise fenagled. MSM polls - yes, you can make that assumption. Polls from houses that actually have to try to be right to stay in business? No.

Nor does pointing this out mean that someone supports McCain. Sad to say, but Hayworth is probably not going to win this one, barring some major sea changes in the way the race goes between now and whenever the primary is. I'd love to see Hayworth win, but the scuttlebutt on the ground in AZ that I'm getting from folks is that a lot of people who don't like McCain also genuinely don't like Hayworth, either.

Well Ari-Freedom, it could be as simple as McCain having $12.5 million to spend and Hayworth only having a half a mil to spend. And then Sarah opened her mouth wide to hawk McCain. On top of that, the Democrats will be voting for McCain too in the primary.

It’s really tough to overcome those dynamics.

If Hayworth had the $12.5 million, and John only had $500k, I guarantee you McCain would have been screaming bloody murder and telling everyone how unfair it was.

John is a fraud. I have to believe the good people of Arizona know it. Still, when you have the Democrats helping to select the Conservative candidate, what can you expect, especially when your own side is doing everything it can to bury you too?

I was glad J. D. entered the race. I give him kudos for having done so.

“Palin has nothing to do with it.”

When other candidates (mostly front runners) she supported won their nomination, many folks on FR claimed it was due to her.
If McCain wins, let’s see how many people here recognize her endorsement for his success the way they did in the other races.

Can’t have it both ways.

Beyond that crap....
I think it was a mistake for her to endorse McCain. Really took away the tough ‘hockey mom’, independent thinker image she was trying to create. It would have been better for her to have not endorsed either in the race, but best for HER to support JD. Her endorsements means zilch to me (nobody’s does) and now I know to look more at the opponents of those she does support.

People never learn, and voters [of fill in the blank] have to be among the most gullible people on the planet

You are so right. Really, they can't learn. It takes work to master political matters.

No, the people of AZ don’t know that McPain is a fraud. They think he is honest, courageous, a fighter, a wonderful statesman. Truly they are delusional.

I expected her to be loyal to her convictions, not to a politician.

That's it in a nutshell. She lost my support over that. BIG mistake!
