Poll: 40% of DeLay's Constituents Want Him to Resign

This new survey from SurveyUSA has the goods:

40% of DeLay's constituents think he ought to step down from Congress.

It's what Public Campaign Action Fund has called on DeLay to do for months.

Looks like the spirited defense DeLay has put up is not working. In fact, it's hurting -- go to the SurveyUSA site and see the downward trend for DeLay.


  • Did you see this article in the Boston Globe tying DeLay and Abramoff to the phone jamming of Democratic headquarters that went on in New Hampshire prior to election day in 2002?

  • Considering that her gardners historically between 55-64% on elections in the last 10 years it's likely the same people who always vote for him and few others.

  • Find a large company near or in Sugarland Texas. Tell the people to hold a referendum on Tom Delay. Those who want Tom Delay to resign to call the company and tell the company executives that unless you get Tom Delay to resign, we will go on strike against your company and not buy from you.

    How do we get a progressive agenda done today?

    The answer appears in your wallet. I imagine each of you have studied the union movement. The union movement has brought us the 40 hour work week and the minimum wage. The union movement had focused on the individual employers to get these benefits.

    Today corporations have taken over the Republican party and even write the legislation that hurts ordinary people.

    We need to form our own ad hoc union and instead of going on a work strike we need to go on a purchasing strike. We need to target some of the major contributors of money to the Republican party as they pull the levers of power and they have the most to lose and they can get the pressure every day instead of the officeholders that only run every 2, 4 and 6 years.

    We need to go on strike against Walmart, Wendy’s, Outback Steak House, Dominos Pizza, Red Lobster, Olive Garden, Eckerd, CVS and Walgreens, GE and Exxon/Mobil.

    We need to call these companies and thell them we have gone on strike against them until they get the RNC to hold a press conference announcing that they will accede to our demands of a TEN dollar an hour minimum wage, an unemployment insurance benefit that will last 1 year instead of 6 months, a real prescription drug benefit under Medicare of 80 percent coverage and no privatization of social security and increasing the social security payroll tax,removing the 88,000 dollar a year FICA taxable income limit, and vote by mail throughout the US with paper ballots and an independent civil service that registers people to vote and counts votes. We need this and more. You make the demands, you go on strike. You have the money and the Republican contributors either do as we want or they go broke under our purchasing strike.

    Call to action. Stop the Republican Party.

    Where Republicans tread, innocent people end up dead.

  • Tom Delay is going to go down hard, he's treading the lighest threads yet.....If he doesn't want to end up on some life without parole, its time for this cod-sucking GOP thug to resign from Congress.

    Now, like everyone is telling him to.
