DSCC New Poll Alert: Webb Beating Allen
October 30, 2006
By: Phil Singer, DSCC

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) today released new polling data collected over the weekend showing Jim Webb beating George Allen in the Virginia Senate race. Go to www.fudgereport.net to learn more about the brewing controversy over Allens arrest records:

* Webb beats Allen by a five point margin (43-38). With leaners, Webb beats Allen by a four point margin (47-43).

* Bushs job approval numbers are terrible 53% of Virginia voters disapprove of the job Bush is doing (45% strongly disapprove).

* Interestingly, the voters sampled in the poll said they voted for Bush over Kerry in 2004 by an eight point margin (50-42), a result that mirrors the actual margin Bush beat Kerry by in their presidential contest (54-46).

* The poll was conducted by Garin-Hart-Yang Research Group and surveyed 811 likely voters. It was conducted from October 26 through October 29 and its margin of error was +/-3.5%.

1. Both Bush's vote and Bush's approval numbers say that this poll
is indeed accurate or at least quite close to it. If Bush's approval rating was only 36% or so, then I would have been suspicious.

2. It is very difficult to imagine,....
.... that the same voting Virginia electorate which elected Kaine as governor, would then turn around and put G. Allen in the Senate. It wouldn't make sense....

4. Fishing without a license?
Do they actually issue arrest warrants for this?

Felix's lies are laughable.

7. Yes - they do. Currently the fine is about $250. Don't know what it would have been in '74 -
- If you don't pay the fine, a warrant is issued for your arrest. This is per my spouse who works for a Parks Dept. so he is familiar with the state laws with regard to fishing.

5. Its GOTV time, dems.
We are within field goal range on the senate side. MO, TN, and VA. There's your three points. A huge get out the vote effort in these three states could be a game winner.

I view a Lieberman proof majority in the senate as backup. It means whatever can be accomplished in the house does not end there but is taken up by the senate. This effectively doubles the clout of people like Barney Frank, John Dingell, Henry Waxman, John Conyers, Charles Rangel, Pete Stark, Lynn Woolsey and Nancy Pelosi. There are a lot of voices there that will make you proud to be an American once again. National politics will become a conversation rather than the recitation of rovian talking points. What a concept.
