Daniel…….Polling Summary for Tuesday, 25th May, 2010

Hello Folks!

Here is my Polling Summary for today:

Georgia Senate:

Isakson (R)  57 %  ,  Thurmond (D)  30 %  (Rasmussen Reports Survey)
Arkansas Governor:
Beebe (D)  53 %  ,  Keet (R)  38 %  (Rasmussen Reports Survey)

Oregon Governor:

Dudley (R)  45 %  ,  Kitzhaber (D)  44 %  (Rasmussen Reports Survey)

Note:

When RAS polled this Race before the Primary and had both Candidates tied at 41 % I first thought this was a joke. Hell no folks, it isn’t. Athough I still seriously doubt Dudley is going to win this Poll bodes very well for Rossi in neighboring Washington State. Sounds like Democrats having real difficulties in their Western Base States.

SC-GOV GOP Primary:

Haley  39 %  ,  McMaster  18 %  ,  G. Barrett  16 %  ,  Bauer  13 %  (Public Policy Polling Survey)

SC-GOV DEM Primary:

Sheheen  36 %  ,  Rex  30 %  ,  Ford  11 %  (Public Policy Polling Survey)

CA-GOV GOP Primary:

Whitman  51 %  ,  Poizner  26 %  (Public Policy Polling Survey)

CA-SEN GOP Primary:

Fiorina  41 %  ,  Campbell  21 %  ,  DeVore  16 %  (Public Policy Polling Survey)

Note:

This morning I said SUSA seemed to be a little erratic on their California Survey. Well folks, maybe not. PPP finds similar Results to SUSA.

Have we come to this in America?…..Anti-Abortionists in Georgia claiming on Billboards “Black Children Are an Endangered Species”……

This series of billboards have been displayed throughout Georgia as part of an anti-abortion campaign.

A series of anti-abortion billboards targeting the African-Amerian community in Georgia have pro-choice advocates crying foul.

The series of ads, which went up last week, state that “Black children are an endangered species,” and promote the website, www.toomanyaborted.com.

Abortion rights advocates labeled the campaign as “disgusting.”

“To use racist arguments to try to bait black people to get them to be anti-abortion is just disgusting,” said Professor Beverly Guy-Sheftall, who teaches women’s history and feminist thought at Spelman College.

“These one-issue approaches that are not about saving the black family or black children, it’s just a big distraction,” she said.

The billboards, sponsored by Georgia Right to Life, are part of a push to have legislation established in Georgia that would make it a crime to “solicit a woman to have an abortion based on the race or sex of the unborn child.”

Black women accounted for the majority of abortions in that state in 2006, even though blacks make up just a third of its population, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“I think [the billboard campaign] is necessary,” said Cheryl Sullenger, senior policy adviser for Operation Rescue. “Abortion in the black community is at epidemic proportions. They’re not really aware of what’s actually going on. If it shocks people … it should be shocking.”
