Evening Political Roundup for February 20, 2012

by: SCRep

Mon Feb 20, 2012 at 17:30:00 PM EST

Arizona: A new Public Policy Polling survey in Arizona finds Mitt Romney with a small lead. Romney leads Santorum 36 to 33%. Newt Gingrich is third at 16% and Ron Paul fourth at 9%. Santorum is better liked by Arizona Republicans than Romney, Santorum's at +34 (61/27), while Romney's at +24 (58/34).

Michigan: A new Public Policy Polling survey in Michigan shows Rick Santorum leading Mitt Romney by four points in the GOP presidential race, 37% to 33%, followed by Ron Paul at 15% and Newt Gingrich at 10%. A We Ask America poll in Michigan finds Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum tied at 29% each. They are followed by Ron Paul at 12% and Newt Gingrich at 10%.

South Carolina: Sen. Lindsey Graham, despite grumblings of a primary challenge from the right, looks like a strong favorite in 2014. All four freshman SC Republican congressman have disavowed any interest in challenging Graham. One possibility who has not ruled out a race, State Sen. Tom Davis from Beaufort.

CA-26: Assemblywoman Julia Brownley (D) of Ventura County will run for the 26th Congressional District. The Democrats were left without a strong candidate here after Supervisor Steve Bennett dropped out last week. Republican Sen. Tony Strickland of Moorpark and Supervisor Linda Parks of Thousand Oaks, who has said she may run as an independent, are also in the race.

It's Brownley, not Brownly.

Babeu speaks
Jose was a hacker he says. Sounds more believable, if Jose is legal, the deportation bit is obviously bs.


Sounds like Jose
is covering for his activity.

TX Redistricting
Queseda Plaintiffs file adivsory on their awful map that traps Cowboys Stadium and Uptown Dallas in Dem districts. They say that their racially gerrymandered CD-33 is superior to either of Texas' offers because their 33rd is an AA district and that CD-33 in the states' offers was "too Hispanic". Yep, they actually put it in writing, to the judges.

Lifelong Republican, TX-17

The gerrmandered seat that
gets hispanic % up at 60 means that an AA might not win the seat.  That's why the NAACP did not sign off on it.

Romney fundraising

I am a Tom Rukavina Democrat.

holy crap santorum is pat buchanan!

Democrat & Socialist. Socially liberal but culturally conservative. I'm ready for Hillary!

Lindsey Graham
Should be in a GOP administration, if Obama loses, thus paving the way for Tim Scott to become a senator.

Should Obama win, I think Graham will simply retire, rather than fight it out.

Mitt regains lead in MI, up 32-30

26, Male, R, NY-10

Scott Walker for President!

By the way
Read their likely voting screen at the bottom of the last page. I really don't like it and it's very weird. Though it might not affect the actual poll.  

26, Male, R, NY-10

Scott Walker for President!

That's a lot of undecideds
But their comparison shows

Mitt gaining a lot in Detroit, Lansing, the UP, and Kalamazoo, while Santorum turned it up in Flint, and people in Grand Rapids became indecisive.

PA-12: Union support for Critz

29, Republican, PA-6

I made the bold prediction that Critz
would win. My 1st reason was union support.  There are still two big shoes out there.  The teachers and Afscme.  I don't see either one of them lining up yet.  In suburban PA those unions would be huge.

My 2nd reason was that even with only 30% of the voters I think PA12 will produce closer to 40% of the primary voters.  His area turns out more in primaries and are more heavily registered in the D party.  

I still am looking for how the public service unions go.  If they endorse Critz that would be huge.  Its huge in any D primary.

The Miami Herald
With their usual biased (and biased wording) hit pieces against any Republican running for office in Florida, almost always without success. Now on Connie Mack, but this one is really bs.
