Allen West Down By 9 to Patrick Murphy In Latest Poll

Categories: WTFlorida

According to a poll taken for the Democratic group House Majority PAC by Garin-Hart-Yang Research, Allen West is trailing challenger Patrick Murphy 52 percent to 43 percent.

THAT RESEARCH FIRM IS COMMUNISSS!!

Last week, West's campaign released their own poll showing the congressman leading Murphy by nine. Another GOP-leaning poll showed Murphy up by four.

The big lead in the Garin-Hart-Yang poll comes mainly from Independents, who think have more negative feelings towards West than positive ones. In other words, Independents think Allen West is a douche.

INDEPENDANTS IS COMMUNISSS!!

"Allen West has become extremely polarizing, and he generates more NEGATIVE feelings (47%) than POSITIVE ones (40%)," the pollster writes in a memo. "In summary, the sharp turn away from Congressman West among Independents shows that his hyper-partisan record is being rejected, and that Patrick Murphy has strong prospects of putting this seat into the Democratic column."
[Politico]

Another thing to consider about this poll is that it's taken by a gold-plated Democratic pollster that leans heavily GOPer.

The poll sample was composed of 44 percent Republicans and 37 percent Democrats. And Murphy gets a big 18-point boost from Independents, according to the poll.

Just last week, West released this video touting his heroness while taking about how Murphy was once arrested for being drunk and having a fake ID.

While Allen West was busy making war on the enemies of freedom's faces, Patrick Murphy was getting his drank on. This country is falling apart. So vote for the guy who was almost dishonorably discharged for being a total dick and not for the guy that once partied too hard as a teenager. NATCH.

@MiltShook Too bad all these 2010ers can't be lumped together and voted on nationally, they would all lose.

OK.  Believe the polls taken by the Democrat pollster that has their guy winning.  I know, it makes for an easier day.  I've got no beef with Murphy and I don't foam at the mouth whever West speaks like some contributors here.  But their is no THERE, there, with Murphy.  No traction.  He will lose.  Not sayin I'm overjoyed about it, just realistic.

I'd say alien West would make a perfect governor of Texas. He'd fit right in with all of the lame crackpots and immigrant haters, plus he'd get to sign all of those death warrants. Hell, West probably would want to conduct the executions personally.

Here is a good question..what will the criminal West end up doing as his political career slowly circles the drain?  What level of insanity will he produce?  Will he go postal when he loses just like he did in Iraq?

Something tells me that even when his circus tent is packed up, we havent seen the last of this lunatic.

The only part that is frustrating about this poll result is that West is only trailing by 9. Note, I did not say surprising, but frustrating, since I will never underestimate the stupidity of voters, with emphasis on Florida voters.  I wan t a blowout for Murphy, of biblical proportions, in order to send a message to the tards.

Well, the course of action is quite obvious.

West needs to get out his pearl(neck) handled .45s and start blasting holes into the ground - ala that poor Iraqi schlub who had the audacity to look, well, look like an Iraqi ... I mean terrorist.

@flipsville Let's hope! It takes Teabaggers a little longer to catch on.

@jezebill We just need to keep our feet on the gas and get rid of as many as possible. Imagine fewer than 10 teabaggers in the House...

 @winsomelosesome As the article and post states, this particular poll is not only proven trustworthy, but leans Republican. Whether it reflects on election day or not remains to be seen, but it's not a purposely skewed poll. Just sayin.

 @winsomelosesome I guess math wasn't your strong suit.   Consider putting down the bible and picking up "Numbers for Complete Fucking Idiots."

 Chris.  Google the research  firm.  Hardly a Republican leaning researcher.  Just sayin'.

I guess objectivity isn't your strong suit.   I don't have to have a bible to know this is Numbers  BY Complete Fucking Idiots. Now, take a deep breath and go back to your Boobs for Boobs magazine.
