Barely One In Five

DeLay's support in his district is waning. According to a newspaper poll conducted this past weekend, only 22% of those polled said they would vote for him if the election were held now.

The response from the DeLay campaign:

"DeLay's spokeswoman Shannon Flaherty challenged the validity of the poll and said the result is 'contrary to the strong support we're seeing for Congressman DeLay throughout the district.'"

I'd bet if the DeLay campaign's poll numbers were different than those of the poll released this past weekend than they would have countered the assertion with something better than the "support" they're "seeing" in the district is "strong". More here.

  • this is slightly OT, but i think i found an article from 2002 which debunks the story that Christine DeLay was paid by the Alexander Strategy Group to create 'favorite charities' lists. i wrote a post on it here.
