Allen West Dominating Democratic Opponent in Florida
Town Hall ^ | Oct 19, 2012 | Katie Pavlich

Posted on 10/21/2012 10:01:17 PM PDT by CaptainKrunch

Rep. Allen West is beating his Democratic opponent Patrick Murphy in the race for a newly drawn Florida congressional district by nine points according to a new poll released yesterday.

Among likely voters surveyed, 51 percent support West and 42 percent back Murphy. Eight percent are undecided.

The same poll, conducted by Public Policy Polling (PPP), found Mitt Romney leading President Barack Obama in District 18 by a 50 percent to 45 percent margin.

The battle for the 18 th congressional district, which includes Martin, St. Lucie and northern Palm Beach counties, is one of the closest watched races in the country. The race has been characterized by a flood of advertising--most of which is coming from West who has outspent his Democratic challenger by 4-1.

TOPICS: News/Current Events; Politics/Elections; US: Florida
KEYWORDS: allenwest; democratic; dominating; florida; opponent; west
Didn't nefarious pro-communist hacks manage to redraw that district in Florida so as to put West at a disadvantage by putting him in a more heavily democrat area?  Did they forget that West was black?  And did they also forget that democrat voters are are obsessed with race?  Of which, they have been encouraging for decades.  Maybe this is a little simplistic, but the democrat guy is white, and West is black.. so doesn't that make West (aka, the "black" guy to democrat voters) the underdog to a lot of democrat voters?  Hahahahahahaha!  Go West!

Gee; what a shocker, the people have a choice between a real American or a democrat flaming liberal wannabe, and they chose the man who served his country with great honor.

Liberals are very pained over this race, of course I don't think rinos liked West much either.

Love Allen West and am thrilled he is ahead of his game; and that the Dem Challenger; is well behind it.

The Repubs so need 'spine' and inspiration; and 'truth being told' and Allen leads the way. . .

I first heard about West when the news broke about the “controversial” interrogation sometime around 2003. Had nothing but respect for the man then, and still do today.

The Country’s fortunate to have an individual with the dedication, heart, and intellect of Allen West.

No reason why he couldn't be our second black president and show the lefties how its done. Clarence Thomas has done that on the Supreme Court.

Great for Allen West. This man is future presidential material. I would without a doubt vote for him.

Of course the Obamabot media would have a conniption fit because he is both black and a conservative.

Sarah and I supported West from the beginning!

I wonder what helped more, her enthusiastic support and being “boots on the ground,” or my measly $50.00 sent from Oklahoma?

Go West!

Too true. I still have to pinch myself sometimes when it comes to patriots like him. We are very, very lucky to have him in office.
