To know him is to dislike him

From USA Today's national surveys dating back to 1999 when relatively few Americans knew Tom DeLay:

Do you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of Tom DeLay?

Favorable -- Unfavorable -- Never heard of -- No opinion

2005 Oct 21-23 20 -- 49 -- 17 -- 14
2005 Oct 13-16 18 -- 45 -- 20 -- 17
2005 Apr 29-May 1 27 -- 38 -- 22 -- 13
2005 Apr 1-2 27 -- 31 -- 26 -- 16
2005 Feb 4-6 29 -- 24 -- 24 -- 23
2003 Jul 25-27 33 -- 19 -- 34 -- 14
1999 Sep 10-14 17 -- 11 -- 54 -- 18

In a more far-reaching development, the poll also finds that corruption in government is the number one issue voters say they'll look at for determining who'll they'll vote for, even surpassing terrorism, Iraq, and the economy in intensity:

How important will each of the following issues be to your vote for Congress this November? (sorted by extremely important)

Extremely important -- Extremely/Very important

Corruption in government 45 -- 81
Terrorism 45 -- 77
The situation in Iraq 44 -- 81
The economy 43 -- 84
Health care 42 -- 79
Gas prices 41 -- 70
Social Security 38 -- 75
Taxes 35 -- 73

  • I find this blog full of hate and lies. Tom DeLay has been a very effective congressman in getting the Republican agenda across and that is why you run this garbage. The democrats are out for a long time to come because of people like you. Americans are fairminded and see right through the mud-slinging here. Get a grip and rise take a ride on the republican victorys that are coming in '06 and '08 because the American people have no other choices. Moveon .Org is now the spokes org. for the left. Too bad, they have taken the dem party down.

  • Are you a complete moron?

    He broke the law all over the place:

    Jack in the House

    Delay's trouble are of his own making, the democrats don't have power worth shit here. It was the state candidates who asked for the investigation, the evidence shows the law was broken all over the place.

    Tom Delay

    If he's so innocent, let the dumbass except his own Judge and get the trial over with. Because now everyone's convinced he is guilty.
