Justice: Webster up 7 over Grayson

posted at 8:48 am on September 29, 2010 by Ed Morrissey

Actually, justice would be too strong of a word.  Justice, in this case, would be Alan Grayson falling 27 points behind Dan Webster after the smears that the Democrat from Florida has conducted in his desperate bid to cling to power.  But take heart; the latest Sunshine State Poll was conducted mainly before the smear in the “Taliban Dan” ad was exposed and widely condemned, which means Grayson may still be hurtling downward:

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.

Grayson insisted that he ran the ad to defend women, but “women really loathe him,” pollster James Lee reports.  Among female voters, Grayson has a 33/53 favorability rating, and Webster beats him by twelve points, 45/33.  That gap probably explains why Grayson wanted to attack on abortion rights, which is certainly a legitimate area of debate, but his despicable “Taliban Dan” attack not only made Grayson look even more sleazy and dishonest, it took all the oxygen out of the argument he wanted to make, as Contessa Brewer pointed out on MSNBC yesterday.

Grayson may be even worse off after the dust settles.  Until now, Grayson has won a plurality of independents in FL-08, an absolute necessity in an R+2 district.  In this poll Grayson has a 42/33 lead over Webster with unaffiliated voters, but that’s not likely to continue after the controversy over his ads crests.  Democrats will stick with Grayson — they have little choice — but independents can either back Webster or one of the other candidates in the race, and they probably will start moving towards one of the other three shortly.

If they do start moving, it will likely be towards Webster anyway.  Sunshine State News quotes Lee, who explains that pollsters saw similar trends in New Jersey last year:

“There was an independent candidate getting double-digit support in all the polling (including ours), but by the time Election Day rolled around voters realized it was a wasted vote and he only got 7 percent, which meant Christie was able to defeat Corzine with less than 50 percent of the vote. If I were Webster, I would be trying to convince conservative Republicans that a vote for Dunmire/Metcalfe is a vote for the incumbent.”

One has to wonder whether Grayson’s loathsome attacks might expedite that process, too.  After seeing Grayson in action, those voters who might have been dissatisfied with Webster on certain issues may well decide that the danger of splitting the vote and re-electing Grayson is too high to vote for an alternative.  The attacks have certainly lit a fire under Webster’s fundraising; he has taken in more than $70,000 since Grayson’s ad ran.  With their numbers only in the single digits in this poll, those alternatives look a lot like a re-election strategy for Grayson, and will look more like that as voters hit the polls in five weeks.

Try to imagine what a person who would vote for this piece of trash would be like. Says a lot about the people in the Orlando area to elect someone this obviously mentally bankrupt.

volsense on September 29, 2010 at 8:53 AM

I’m glad Webster is up, but 7 points is not enough. A scumbag like Grayson should be down double-digits with all the incendiary things he’s said over the last year.

Greasy Alan Grayson is perhaps the vilest disgrace to ever walk the halls of Congress — and that’s saying a lot! He drips sleaze from every pore and oil from every strand of hair. He delights in lying, and joyfully regurgitates hate.

I have to agree with several posters on the other Grayson threads concerning the incredible amount of idiocy involved in his decision making.

This looks more like someone auditioning for a spot on MSNBC…..a czar position in Obama’s administration….or a part in a SNL skit.

This boob is less of a threat than Zoe Lofgren is, who wields actual power. Grayson, the crazy old relative who shows up every Thanksgiving but who no one in the family likes, wouldn’t be allowed more to do on Capital Hill than get people fresh coffee if re-elected.

lukespapa on September 29, 2010 at 9:12 AM

Quoting from Bernard Goldberg’s “100 People Who Are Screwing Up America”:

Hurricane names like Andrew and Bonnie and Ivin are just too darn white. This is not fair to all those black children who are left out. We need affirmative action when it comes to naming catastrophic storms. Right on, sister!

I can hear Dan Rather now, called out of semiretirement to chase one more hurricane … “This vicious killer storm — Shaniqua — is barreling through Pensacola at this very moment, destroying everything in sight. I’ll bet you a ten-pound bag of unsalted goobers to a sack of horse feathers that no one in his right mind wants this big bad girl Shaniqua anywhere near where they live…”

Here’s a news flash for the congresswoman: Hurricanes are bad. They’re deadly. Poeple don’t like them. If I were you, I’d try to pass a law mandating that all hurricane names — without exception – be restricted to Biff and Skip and Muffy, as a kind of reparation for all the bad stuff that has happened to black people over the years in this country.

“What Democrat Congressman is the biggest fool” would be an exceptional contest to have.

March the contestants on stage, have them flail at spelling two syllable words, have them botch Constitutional questions, have them look bewildered at questions on American history.

Reveal Democrats for the absolute fools they are.

The winner? The American voter.

NoDonkey on September 29, 2010 at 9:43 AM

Bear in mind that the poll was ending just as this story was breaking in the MSM. Presumably the next poll will include the full effect of the voters’ response to the Grayson ad.

aunursa on September 29, 2010 at 9:44 AM

So, let me get this straight. Many people here seem to take polls conducted for CNN, New York Times, NBC News and every other lamestream media outlet with a box of salt. But a poll conducted for a conservative website you’ve never heard of is treated as gospel.

I sure hope it’s “wake up, America!” time but we’ll see. For 40+ years we’ve been putting up with this crap from the boot-licking adulation for the sleazy Kennedys, the arrogance of the John Kerry, Barbara Boxer types, the corruption of the Chicago mafia we’re experiencing now we’ve become complacent and used to it as matter-of-fact where democrats are concerned. It’s time to throw off these chains. All the accusations against republicans pale in comparison and the blatant double-standards we see in the media and how they treat republicans. Republicans get thoroughly scrutinized while bozos like this putz, Grayson, get a pass. And democrats never let the truth and facts get in the way. And if it doesn’t suit their purpose, they’ll invent lies and distort the truth to push their agenda. Look at Sarah Palin and Christine O’Donnell. The democrats need to get beaten and badly all over the country.

This Grayson nut job is the worst sort: a democrat nut job with power to write legislation – and access to a microphone.

This Grayson nut job has a brother from another mother, too. Democrat Pete Stark (raving mad) from California, who routinely verbally attacks his own constituents.

Moral bankruptcy and intellectual dishonesty are their calling cards and the politics of personal destruction is their tool of choice.

And the indolent talking heads of the MSM make a habit of ignoring the lurid displays of these democrat nut jobs. The obvious contrast any blogger would make is “what if a Republican had said/done this or that??”

We all know the answer to that one, which is why I always say that the only difference between a conservative nut job and a liberal nut job is that liberals elect their nut jobs to public office.

We have 3 threads up showing a sitting democratic Congressman who in the past referred to Republicans as nazis on the House floor…..

………..whose currently states that a candidate is a member of the Taliban in an ad so dishonest and cut-n-pasted that it would make Micheal Moore blush……

…..this following another add in which he lies about the military service of said candidate by stating he “dodged military service”……

……and the only comment you have made concerning all 3 posts is to whine about whether the posters at Hot Air are consistent in their speculation concerning polls.

….what’s next….you going to “show some consistency” and blame Grayson’s dishonest ignorance on the partisan climate supposedly created by Fox News and the Tea Party like the rest of the democratic party does…..

……How about cleaning up your own backyard before you start making demands of other people.

I shudder to think how low Grayson will stoop next, when the polls show him down by double digits as a reaction to the “Taliban Dan” ad.

For some reason people found this confusing.

In 1953 the international phonetic alphabet (Able, Baker, Charlie) was changed (Alpha, Bravo, Charlie)

In 1953 the system for naming hurricanes in the USA was also changed from phonetic alphabet (Able, Baker, Charlie) + Latitude/Longitude/ Day/Date to a Single name, a Single FEMALE name.

In 1979 a lot of woman’s groups complained that this was an INSULT to woman (hurricanes can be a real Bit*h).

So in 1979 men names were added to the list of hurricane names.

2003 Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee found this to be an INSULT to African-Americans , that the names were too “lily white” and wanted names to represent African-Americans and other ethnic groups.

Remember, men names were added cuz Female names were an inference to Bit*h.

Male names, I guess, are an inference to Bastard.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee wants names, African-Americans and other ethnic groups that are an inference to Bastard and Bit*h to be used to name hurricanes . (you just can’t make this stuff up)

I suggest we name ALL hurricanes “Sheila Jackson Lee” plus location.

That should solve that whole “inference” problem.

Democrats will stick with Grayson — they have little choice

Or they will stay home, effecting ALL Dems in Fla.
Or they will vote anyone but a Dem this year (Highly likely) effecting ALL Dems in Fla.

On the good side for Obama/Dems? Grayson just volunteered to be the National Pinata for why the Dems got creamed.
