Mia Love Surges Ahead of Jim Matheson in Recent Poll

Ramped up attack ads from Matheson signal desperation

Saratoga Springs – A recent poll conducted by Public Opinion Strategies indicates Mia Love has surged to a commanding 51-36% lead over Matheson. Mia’s message of reforming Washington is gaining widespread support from Utah voters, while Jim Matheson's support for Obama's policies have diminished his support for re-election.

With Mia Love surging among voters, Jim Matheson and his allies have resorted to false and personal attacks. Matheson and his Washington allies have begun a deeply negative campaign, attacking Mia Love, her family and Saratoga Springs. While voters have rejected these tactics, Jim Matheson stands by these admittedly false attacks.

Mayor Mia Love stated, “The support for my effort to change Washington and support Mitt Romney in Congress is encouraging. Sadly, Jim Matheson has turned to false attacks on my community and my family. Now is the time for Jim Matheson to stop his negative campaign. If Jim believes he wants to change politics, he should begin by changing the tone of his campaign."

Campaign Advisor Ivan DuBois said, “Unfortunately Matheson is playing the same old Washington games, letting his allies launch negative personal attacks and then claim he doesn’t care. With Jim Matheson’s support withering away, it’s really no wonder his campaign and Washington allies have become increasingly petty and desperate.”

Mayor Mia Love concluded, “This continued momentum and support is thanks to hundreds and thousands of Utahns who have joined our grassroots movement. We’re ready to take our country back. But our team will take nothing for granted and won’t let up in these final weeks – the stakes are too high, especially with Matheson and his Washington Democrat friends getting so desperate. My campaign will focus on the real issues as we continue to invite Utah voters to join us in fighting to restore the America we know and love.”

The poll indicates with just six weeks until election day that Jim Matheson is now in uncharted territory as a candidate. Jim has been unable to connect with voters and is flailing to find a way to keep his job.

If for some reason the link isn’t working for you (I tried it and it just takes me to my standard facebook home page, even though the link is correct), try the UTGOP’s facebook home page: http://www.facebook.com/#!/UTGOP.

Saw her on Huckabee for the first time this weekend. She talks like a conservative talk show host and with total conviction. In other words, she’s who we need in the government, as opposed to a bunch of country club, establishment good ol’ boys whose real constituencies are the liberal media and their Democrat pals in Washington.

Yes. It's a new district, but Matheson has been an incumbent for at least 12 years. He switched to the new district because he thought he would more easily win there than in what apparently would have been be a race against Jason Chaffetz after redistricting put them both in the same district.

I think Mia’s a more effective salesman for Mormonism than Mitt is.

Maybe it’ll take a black woman to be the “white horse.”

I don't know about that, but she's sure a more effective salesman for conservatism than Mitt is.

That should be featured in a national campaign ad by the RNC / Romney - that clip of her speech. It would be very effective.

But then what do I know.

Alan West in a skirt! Mia Love is one of the new faces of the Republican Party. She’ showing the world that Harry Reid is a sorry excuse for a Mormon. 99% of Mormons are decent people like Mia, not POS like Harry. He should be excommunicated from the Mormon Church. He is pond scum!

GREAT comparison in #17, JediJones! ;-D

My husband and I love Mia Love! Been following her campaign for a few months now (via TV and online).

Mia was awesome at the RNC convention - she had a great video introduction and gave a fantastic speech:

Mayor Mia Love's inspiring video and speech at the RNC (8/28/12)

Unfortunately Mia's speech was not scheduled during prime time, so very few people saw her (we saw her live only on C-SPAN).

What a wonderful addition to the House Mia would be... can't wait to see more libs' heads explode WHEN she wins... GO Mia!

Nutmeg (and others), I think you’ll enjoy the links I’ve provided below. The first two links provide access to two videos of Mia Love from the Republican National Convention. The last three are interviews or presentations by Mia Love. They are all great.

After seeing all the videos below, I think folks will think Mia Love is great.

The first video is one they played just before Mia Love walked onto the platform at the convention.

The second is Mia’s comments regarding Romney at the convention.

Combined, I believe these make up the video you just linked. I am linking these because the quality is top notch. It goes all the way up to 1080p HD. You can click on the gear wheel icon, and select the version that works best for your machine.

One is the introduction to Mia Love, providing personal insight to her. 2:35

Here is Mia’s comments about Romney on the convention platform. 4:12

Here’s a bonus interview with Megyn Kelly. (480p only) 5:15

She sure will not be looking for the American flag that the astronauts left on Mars
