Keeping yelling, start running…

Keeping yelling, start running is the message from the America First Party. In an e-mail, the party mentions, “Many thanks are owed to those who are willing to take time to attend rallies and participate in town hall meetings.”

The party says this is not where your activism can end. The party says people need to “organize a long-term response” a people need to make a commitment to run for office.

The message is highlighted by the line, “Many talk impressively, but few take the next step.”


First NJ Gubernatorial post-debate poll leaves questions…

First NJ Gubernatorial post-debate poll leaves questions from the results. Rasmussen released the first poll after the first New Jersey Gubernatorial debate. It leaves some head scratching.

The poll showed Republican Chris Christie getting 47% of the vote. That is the highest polling result for Christie of any poll in two weeks, but a number of media reports have said Christie was a loser in the debate. The poll also showed incumbent Democrat Governor Jon Corzine getting 44% of the vote, that is the highest percentage of votes for Corzine anytime this year! The poll showed only 6% committing to vote for Independent Chris Daggett, he had not polled that low since early September. This is after Daggett was considered to be the winner of the debate by many watchers.

The poll showed that 21% of voters would consider voting for a third party option. As the Corzine & Christie attacks pick-up could that number grow?


New poll shows great hope for Daggett…

A new poll shows great hope for New Jersey Independent Gubernatorial candidate Chris Daggett. When put head to head-to-head-to-head a newly released poll from Fairleigh Dickinson University’s PublicMind showed Governor Jon Corzine in a statistical dead heat with Republican Chris Christie 38%-37%. Independent Daggeett showed 16% committied to voting for Daggett, and one percent more leaning towards Daggett.

While being about 20% behind the leader seems bad, there is good news in the poll. Daggett has single digit response to people having a "Somewhat Unfavorable" or "Very Unfavorable" view of him. Both Governor Corzine and Christie are in the 40’s for unfavorable views.

Also a small sample of people said Daggett won the debate.

Now in classic burying-the-lead fashion, the major problem with this poll. The poll was “conducted by telephone from Sept. 28, 2009,through Oct.5, 2009” according to the data. That means some of the people were polled prior Daggett coming out with his tax plan, and many people were polled prior to the debate. That means it is only up for Daggett.
