KCCI/Research 2000 Poll:
Here’s the deal. You’re an idiot of you are giving any sort of credence to KCCI’s Survey USA’s poll that they published last week. Research polls are auto calls that are blasted out to phones. If a cat or dog can pick up a receiver and can push a few buttons they can vote.
Every scientific poll that has been done show Governor Culver getting is a$$ handed to him. Look, you don’t need a poll to tell you that Governor Culver is in real trouble, just read the headlines and look at the unemployment and budget numbers.
So while ‘m not about to lose any sleep over the KCCI/Research 2000 Poll, I do hope that Roxanne Conlin gets all excited about these numbers and spends a ton of money on her race against Chuck Grassley. I about fell out of my seat when I heard Mike Glover on Iowa Press try to make the case that Conlin could win in the current environment.
Yes, I know that Chuck Grassley has held office for over 50 years, but if he was going to get beat this year it would have been in a primary, not against some crazy millionaire cat lady who Iowans can’t relate too.
It was interesting to see Miller-Meeks’ comments in Kathie Obradovich’s column this week. Basically she doesn’t think that Rob Gettemy is going to spend that $100,000 he loaned his campaign. She called it a “bluff.” I don’t know what Gettemy is going to do either, but if I were in Miller-Meeks’ shoes I’d be preparing like he’s going to spend every last dime and then some.
Prediction: I bet Miller-Meeks is the last candidate in the 2nd CD to begin running TV ads. That’s not a good thing. Miller-Meeks should be setting the tone for the race in the 2nd CD, not following other candidates. With Rathje already on TV, and Gettemy with the most to spend, she might be about to lose her name ID advantage.
Gambling: It will not be long until the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission makes its decision on whether or not it will grant additional casino licenses. I bet that Fort Dodge will not get a license. Culver needs the entire Fort Dodge mess to go away, and there is no better way for it to go away than Fort Dodge getting passed over.
