Skip to comments.Poll: Obama, Dems Poised to Lose Grayson House Seat
Posted on 09/29/2010 2:58:21 AM PDT by Johnny B.
In one of the most closely watched U.S. House races in the nation, Republican Daniel Webster now holds a 7-point lead over Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson in Central Florida's 8th Congressional District, according to a new Sunshine State News Poll.

Need to get that number up to double digits!
And I think most of it is Grayson’s own doing. His over-the-top slanderous ads are boomeranging on him — big time.
Thank God. Grayson is a mean-spirited buffoon. Voters should be embarrassed that they ever voted for this jerk. Get him out.
Oh would it ever be sweeeeeet to see that jackass take the fall!
I’m looking forward to sending this turd an email crediting him and thanking him for his own defeat.
Even lil ole contessa brewer went after Grayson yesterday.
Guess he’s gone too far, even for the America hating leftists on MSNBC.
Proof that the system works.
Grayson is despicable. He is one of the lowest of the low in the lowest of the low professions. The man is an utterly corrupt, contemptible, lying, evil pig.
Grayson was released from a Psychiatric Institute after doctors declared him
not to be a threat to the public. So the whacko decided to be a Congressman.
THIS JUST Circa 1988, Grayson had just turned thirty and while working for the Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson law firm, he spent four days in the Psychiatric Institute of Washington.
What the cause of this stay was is yet unclear, although testimony from co-workers suggests that Grayson was extremely combative with fellow employees, including slapping a female intern in the face.
Grayson was released from the Psychiatric Institute after doctors declared him not to be a threat to the public.
I hope that’s true. We have to keep in mind that we’re talking about voters who elected him in the first place.
Hanity played the ad and Webster’s full statement last night and they just showed both on Fox & Friends. Gretchen said something like no woman in his district should vote for Grayson.
I was wondering if the local media was giving it any attention and it looks like the Orlando Sentinel did. Hopefully, after all this comes out, Webster’s #s will go even higher.
Grayson’s ‘Taliban Dan’ ad takes Webster’s words out of context, twists meaning

That sounds familiar----did Grayson pull a Wexler con?
BACKSTORY Ex-Cong Wexler lived with his family in Maryland and calculatedly used his in-laws Palm Beach address to establish Florida residency in overwhelmingly Democratic Palm Beach. Wexler was elected to Congress in 1996 and has NEVER faced a serious challenge. Wexler won a seventh term with 66.2 percent of the vote.
(Sob) I just hope Wexler's wealthy Palm Beach district is not the same wealthy Palm Beach affinity crowd that got wiped out "investing" with Madoff (/sniffle).
Wexler has quit Congress. He will get Big Bucks to run The Middle East (dare we say it) "Peace" Center. Wexler's job will consist of negotiating a multi-billion dollar price tag on the inevitable photo-ops of Peace Pals---Obambi and Bimbiyahoo (in $3500 Armani suits)---shaking hands in the Rose Garden (yawn). The bilking of the US Treasury continues.
NEED TO KNOW Did then-Cong Wexler vote for (and earmark) budget appropriations for The Middle East Peace Center--that included a hefty salary, expense account, travel allowance, and other perks, for himself? An accounting of the Wexler-types getting wealthy off these "peace" scams is in order. Speaking of prosecutions, most Americans believe people should be prosecuted for daring to utter "peace" and "Mideast" in the same sentence.
Grayson, Torres, and peace sign.
Roll Call reported one of Rep. Alan Graysons pollsters is running for the state House in Florida as a Tea Party candidate, fueling Republican suspicions that the Democratic Congressman is using a newly formed third party to boost his own re-election bid.
Victoria Torres, 44, of Orlando qualified to run as a Tea Party candidate in state House district 51 in the last hours of the qualifying period.
A call to Torres was returned by Nick Egoroff, communications director for the Florida Tea Party, who described Torres as a quasi-paralegal assistant who works in a law office.
According to state records, apparently, Torres is also a pollster.
I have some friends that live in his district. Tiger, Shaq, and many others in ultra high economic circles also live there. It is unfathomable that this nutjob ever won there in the first place. Good riddance to bad rubbish although I do hope he gets the help he so desparately needs. And the leftys make fun of tea partyiers. What a joke.
If the GOP/TEA PARTY wins big in 2010 it will have to be the 1st of many, many wins. It’ take generation or 2 to take this country back.
Getting rid of grayson would be great. DU would meltdown.
Which district is Col. Allen West in, and does he have a shot?
Excellent news ON TO NOVEMBER!
Thank God! We can finally put this one out to pasture. Never to be heard from again.
Methinks there will be a DU meltdown this November regardless.
It will be fun to watch!
He is in trouble if MSNBC goes after him.
The man is clearly in need of psychiatric help.
Truthfully tho, most dems are not much different than Grayson. Just listen to Anthony Weiner and you see Grayson’s kindred soul.
Isn't that chanting and slo mo' hugging at the end just comical?! I'll be happy to forget it.
Are there any stories about Grayson having “certifiable” staff? I believe he is mentally ill but what about his staff?
I couldn’t care less if he gets help - I just want him to get gone.
Rich lefties will elect any rat. They pay no attention to what they do once in office.
I’m assuming if he gets beat he’ll pack up and move to Minnesota to run for the Senate - Minnesotans appear to have a proclivity for clueless clowns who use the carpetbagger approach.
And he’s almost as ugly as one of the jerks they’ve got as a senator now.
I want DU so devastated that they shut down public access for three days like they did for W's second win. That reminds me, I need to register so I can read their rants when they do it again.
My brother, his wife, and family live there. They love this guy. They think he walks on water.
I think I have Grayson Derangement Syndrome. I have a strong urge to do to him personally what he would want to do to George W. Bush personally.
Future MSNBC host Alan Grayson one day closer to his new job, on MSNBC.
RE: #25, Good Lord, that’s about as creepy as the schoolkids and their”mmm mmm mmm Barak Hussein Obama” chants and songs from a while back.
West is in FL-22 and yes, he does have a shot.
There are competing internal polls from each camp. Each show their candidate leading. Both show Klein under 50%. We don’t have full data from Klein’s poll, but West’s poll shows him winning independents by a sizable margin. Both were before the SS number was released. West should be able to pull it off. The district was R until 2006.
My condolences. Family get-togethers must stink on ice.
I know what I want on my next T shirt: "Not A Threat To The Public".
“Truthfully tho, most dems are not much different than Grayson. Just listen to Anthony Weiner and you see Graysons kindred soul.”
Agree! Wexler (no longer in Congress)are a couple of other examples; and, of course, there is Debbie Schultz-Wasserman (sp) - I turn channels whenever that insufferable, lying whiney, woman comes on.
Grayson is a huge part of what is wrong with Congress. Getting rid of him will raise the ethics level of Congress by 100%.
Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.
Buh-bye Alan! Don’t let the door hit you in the face on the way out!
Hasn't worked just yet....time will tell
My sympathies, fox. We all probably have a few crooked branches on the family tree.
If the media weren't biased, they would be all over this story as much as they were all over the Breitbart video of that lady giving a speech to the NAACP...
He can get a job as Ed Shultz Butt Boy.
Thank goodness!!! I just moved down here and I can’t stand the thought of him being my congressman. His ads are driving me crazy.
