What's with the voters in that district anyway?

I'd crawl over tinfoil candy bar wrappers here for a candidate like that to vote for... It should be 80% to 20%!

I like it! I am just a bit worried that the pollsters are over sampling Repubs now. Something about a false sense of security.

I guess West's pandering to the black vote with his "Justice for Trayvon" Facebook post back in March didn't work out so well...

This is great news I was concerned since I got an email from Dick Morris a few minutes ago saying that West was down 9 points so this is good news indeed!

This is great news, and also a somewhat funny example of coordination problems. There are multiple paid emails and headlines today begging for money because West is 9 points down. They should have waited until tomorrow to release the good poll results...LOL.

Either way, happy to see a great man with a strong lead. I would hate to see Florida lose an outspoken conservative.

Good, very good news.

Lois Capps is losing to Able Maldonado in California.
Capps’ record shows her to be equal in all rating categories to Pelosi.

He is making all the right life choices - military and Congressional. He needs more time to become fully knowledgeable and we need more space from Obama.

Imagine his voter base;0 Men, women, blacks, whites, military, young, old, Conservatives, recovering Democrats.

Landslide of epic proportions.!!!!!!!!!

Great news! I think the ad West did showing Murphy's arrest might have helped a lot.

Shows us that the American people DO want a leader. West certainly is one, and the debate last Wednesday showed the nation that Romeny is also.

BUT--they are the kind of leaders who are willing to fight by joining in the battle and committing their sacred honor and fortune to it.

Obama is too much like a dictator, urging other people to "enter the fight" while he stands back to enjoy the adoration of the masses while refusing to make the sacrifices "fighting the good fight" requires.

God bless Allen West--and Mitt Romney!

We need their leadership.

***Do blacks vote for black conservatives?***

With friendly persuasion and God’s miracles.....YESSSSS!!!!!

The next few years of redemption will provide plenty of time to reflect on the mistakes of the first Black _resident. 2008 was more ‘historic’ than practical/logical- plus, the DNC, & media ill-served all Americans by not vetting the candidate. The conservative Alan West will be thoroughly examined and criticised by the MSM.

"I'm just a bit worried that the pollsters are....."

Fear not. The polling companies need clients after any election to stay in business. If they're too far off the mark on final election results, they drop to the bottom of the future "do business with" list. Their company heads, owners and staffs have to eat like anyone else.

This is why polls tend to tighten or become more accurate as election day looms. We're already seeing figures in a realistic range from a few of the more responsible polling companies.

Keep your eye on Rasmussen, they were the most accurate last election. The company is still screwing around in its reports to keep everyone is a state of dither, fascination......and addiction to THEIR numbers and brand name.

But begin to pay attention to them a few days before the Big Day when most of the pollsters pretty much have ceased their conniving and numbers-cooking.

Don’t know what poll this is....

I *did* get a “3rd party” group email trying to convince me to give money to them...because supposedly a new poll showed Allen West NINE POINTS DOWN.

I usually give straight to the candidate, and I have given to Allen in the past...and this “panic” email sounded fishy.

Has anyone else in Florida gotten such an email? Sorry I do not remember who it came from.

Blame the Florida GOP, and the FL House for redistricting Allen West into a more liberal district

No doubt the GOP-E in Florida and the national party do not like West.

The FL GOP and FL House (GOP run) also screwed over Sandy Adams/John Mica....putting them in the same district...while opening another district that helped ALAN GRAYSON...yes that ALAN GRAYSON

The FL GOP may be the worst atate level GOP organization in the land.

I live just south of Col. West’s district and I was somehow gerrymandered into Federica Wilson’s district, which is 90% Dim. As of yet, her only successful action in CONgress was to get the Weeper of the House to allow her to wear her crazy hats on the House floor.

Pray for me.

I also received an email warning that there are some groups claiming they are collecting donations for Allen's campaign and they actually are not legit. The email advised to make donations ONLY directly to Allen's campaign web site.

Best bet is to avoid PAC's of any kind and give directly to the particular candidate's official website. Allen's is here: http://www.allenwestforcongress.com/

“Blame the Florida GOP, and the FL House for redistricting Allen West into a more liberal district

No doubt the GOP-E in Florida and the national party do not like West.”


You are aware that the FL legislature had its hands tied due to the sub-moronic constitutional amendment adopted by FL voters that requires districts to be as compact as possible, right? And that FL Republicans could no longer draw a skinny FL-22 along the coastline in Broward and Palm Beach Counties that excluded heavily Dem areas, right?

There was no conspiracy to get Allen West. The idiots in your home state forced the legislature to draw less gerrymandered districts, and it hurt folks like West who were in marginal districts that depended on gerrymandering to keep them from leaning Democrat.

BTW, the same pollster that found West to be up by 12% in his new disatrict (FL-18) found Republican Adam Hasner to be percentage points ahead of Lois Frankel in the ungerrymandered, Dem-leaning successor to West’s current district (FL-22):

http://www.postonpolitics.com/2012/10/new-poll-shows-hasner-frankel-in-dead-heat-west-with-12-point-lead-over-murphy/?utm_medium=email&utm_source=et&utm_content=text_body_I+wanted+to+share+with+you+the+results+of+the+latest+public+poll+that+now+has+us+slightly+ahead+in+the+race+for+Florida%27s+22nd+congressional+district.&utm_campaign=1863368_205972_Adam%20Hasner

Hasner, who is Jewish and had a terrific conservative record in the state legislature, is probably the one Republican who can win in the redrawn FL-22, which has a large Jewish population. This would be a HUGE victory for the GOP, and could be the start of a realignment of Jewish voters in Southern Florida—away from the anti-Israel Democrats and towards the GOP.

A recent (Republican) poll has Harrington within 4.5%, with DWS below 45%. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2941769/posts I’m not sure I buy the poll, though. The new district is not as heavily RAT as the old one, but it still has a very strong Dem lean.

If Harrington wins, it will be the upset of the cycle, and it will almost certainly mean that Hasner will win as well.
