The hopefully future ex-Florida Representative and inspiration for the invention of the straight-jacket is down by seven points in Florida:
In one of the most closely watched U.S. House races in the nation, Republican Daniel Webster now holds a 7-point lead over Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson in Central Florida’s 8th Congressional District, according to a new Sunshine State News Poll.
Webster, a former state senator, leads the freshman congressman 43-36 in the survey of 559 likely voters conducted Sept. 25-27. TEA (“Taxed Enough Already”) Party candidate Peg Dunmire drew 6 percent and NPA hopeful George Metcalfe garnered 3 percent, while 9 percent remained undecided (2 percent cited “other” and 1 percent refused to state).
Digging deeper, the numbers look even worse for Grayson as 51 percent of respondents said they had an unfavorable view of the Orlando-area congressman.
Time to make more of those lying, disgraceful context-edited ads! Saying the “Taliban Dan” ad was a “new low” as applied to Alan Grayson is a redundancy of the highest order. There’s still over a month until the election, so there’s plenty more “low” to go.
Here’s the reason for Grayson’s desperation to paint Daniel Webster as the second coming of Ike Turner meets Archie Bunker:
Female voters are anything but ambivalent about Grayson — “They really loathe him,” Lee reported. With Grayson’s 33/53 favorable/unfavorable rating among women, Webster’s lead among females is much stronger (45/33 over Grayson) compared to a statistical tie (41/40 Webster) among males.
