Do Mark Critz’s Supporters Know When Election Day Is?

The NRCC passes along this word:

 

A new internal poll shows the race in PA-12 to be neck-and-neck.  The numbers also demonstrate that intensity not only favors the GOP, but they give Tim Burns a 7-point edge among voters most tuned-in and aware of the Special Election on May 18.  Key excerpts from the poll are included below:

·         Tim Burns leads Mark Critz 43%-41%, with 14% remaining undecided.

·         Among those most likely to vote, Tim Burn’s lead over Mark Critz is wider.

·         Among those who can blindly correctly name the election day (40% of the electorate) Burns leads Critz 49% 42%.

·         Among those most interested in the election (72% of the voters) Burns leads Critz 46% 40%.

·         Among those who are extremely likely to vote (65% of the voters) Burns leads Critz 45% 41%.

NOTE: The results are from a survey of 400 likely voters completed in Pennsylvania’s 12th Congressional district by Public Opinion Strategies May 4-5, 2010. The margin of error on the survey is plus or minus 4.9%.

I’m glad the Burns folks are seeing this, but no one should have any illusions – this is going to be a tough, hard-fought race all the way to the end.

The World Keeps Not Ending

We were not supposed to have made it this far. George Orwell saw night descending on us in 1984. Orwell was, on paper, a radical, but in his heart he was an old-fashioned English liberal. He dreamed of socialism but feared socialists. He feared them because he knew them. I was in the sixth grade in 1984, but I ... Read More
