Schauer Internal: Schauer 46 Walberg 36
Here I was, thinking Republican endorsements and tonight's Siena Heights University candidate forum would be the only excitement. The Schauer campaign released a new poll:
“Today, by a 28-point margin voters are more likely to blame unfair trade policies than taxes for Michigan’s economic situation, and across the board they favor Schauer on every economic issue,” said pollster Andrew Myers. “Make no mistake, this political environment is becoming dangerous for any Republican incumbent, particularly one whose connection to voters here is as tenuous as Walberg’s.”
Once again, it was through Myers Research & Strategic Services. It was conducted October 5 and 6, surveying 500 "likely voters." The partisan breakdown was 36 percent Democratic, 33 percent Republican, and 31 percent independent. The margin of error is 4.38 percent with a 95 percent confidence level.
Here are the reported results (Sept. 23-24 results in parentheses, where available):
Mark Schauer vs. Tim Walberg
Mark Schauer vs. Tim Walberg - Independents Only
Mark Schauer vs. Tim Walberg - Lansing Media Market Only
Trust On Taxes
Generic Congressional Ballot
Barack Obama vs. John McCain
Walberg Job Performance
There's lots of good stuff in there for Mark Schauer.
Any chance we might have audio or video of the Schauer/Walberg debate from last night?
Reports from the Jackson Midtown Association meeting on Tuesday morning were that Walberg made it clear that he doesn't support equal pay for women.
I'm working on it... Hopefully I'll have audio sometime tonight and a transcript by the weekend. WKHM says they'll have full audio soon, and they have some clips online.Post a Comment
This is the first I heard about an equal pay answer (I wasn't able to make it this time). I'll definitely have to listen for that. Walberg also lied about privatization of Social Security, so that'll be fun, too.
