Harris Beats Nelson -- Leads 54% to 45%

Thursday, October 05, 2006


TAMPA, FL- Congresswoman Katherine Harris, the Republican candidate for the United States Senate, soundly defeated Bill Nelson this evening by a 54% to 45% margin in the straw poll conducted at the Lakeland Bi-Annual Politics in the Park. The Harris campaign continues to build momentum, engendering tremendous grassroots support throughout the state with a pro-growth, pro-family message that resonates across the political spectrum.

Congresswoman Harris commented, I appreciate the strong support of a majority of voters who are disillusioned with Bill Nelsons lack of leadership and his record of voting against Floridas best interests. I will fight for Florida in the United States Senate.

<<<<<more.>>>>



So Katherine Harris takes a poll at some event and claims that means she's in the lead. Mind you, the recent Zogby Polls of just a week ago gave Nelson a 20+ point lead.

Harris is drinking some serious grape kool-aid

6. And she imagines that she has friends with GWB and JEB, who
plan to stab her in the back.

Her true imaginary friends are spunk and moxie, because they ain't real.

11. Hilarous: Did you know it cost $25 to vote in the straw poll?
The Lakeland Ledger has a nice column about Harris and her ridiculous straw poll claim!!

Harris Unfairly Trumpets Results of a Straw Poll in the Park
By Bill Rufty
bill.rufty@theledger.com


One of the biggest frustrations for public opinion pollsters and academics dealing with applied statistics is the misuse of and sometimes downright bending of the truth when it comes to poll results, especially by politicians.

.....

And what a perfect example we have from the campaign staff of U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris, R-Longboat Key, who sent out statewide press releases Friday trying to say she is leading Democratic incumbent U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson.

The Harris campaign took results from a straw vote at the Lakeland Chamber's Politics in the Park held on Thursday and sent screaming headlines to news media. The press release made it appear that Harris, who is still down in all the general polls being conducted, has risen ahead of Nelson among Florida voters.

The truth is you couldn't vote at Politics in the Park unless you paid $25. The Ledger even ran a picture of Harris helping a six-year-old vote in the straw ballot. Recent, scientifically-conducted polls show that among most likely voters in Florida, Nelson still leads Harris by double digits.
