Polling Anyone?

Have had several email alerting us to the following telephone survey questions:

1. Will you vote for John McCain?
and,
2. What is your likelihood of voting in the primary?

Has anyone else received this telephone survey and if so were the questions the same?

One would expect that results would be released if the answers were positive but we are yet to hear anything regarding this poll.

  1. No call as of yet, but my answers would be:

    1. HELL NO!
    2. Yes, for Jim Deakin.

  2. Do you mean Jim “The Spoiler” Deakin? If jim stays in this race and spoils the outcome his name and reputation will live in infamy. He will forever be known as the “Ross Perot” of Arizona. Get out Jim and let the real candidates run!

    Everytime someone says “I’m voting for Jim Deakin”, a smile comes to McCain’s face. I remember when Jim started his campaign, and it was to defeat John McCain. I just can’t imagine he will play the spoiler and help re-elect McCain for any reason, let alone anything so petty as ego or jealousy that Hayworth is getting all the attention. Come on Jim, we’re counting on you to remember what is important in life, and its not getting on TV for a debate. Its getting rid of John McCain.

    And no, I have not been polled by McCain yet. But I did get a couple of autodialers from JD, including a telephone town hall deal that was pretty neat. Its like a huge conference call for I don’t know how many thousand people.

    And I’ll stick up for Jim, Oscar. He is a real candidate, and saying otherwise is needlessly demeaning. The sad fact is that he can’t possibly win, and he knows it. So why is he staying in the race? He knows it only helps McCain, so why? It just doesn’t make sense.

  5. There’s no way I’d vote for anyone BUT McCain!! The John McCain of 2010 is even more amazing then the John McCain of 2000. He fought hard core against that healthcare bill, he fought hard against the massive climbing deficit, he fought hard for our Nation’s security!

  6. Richard W says

    Would have been a lot better if Hayworth had stayed with radio. There were good reasons that he lost his last election.

  7. Richard,

    Why don’t you list those “good reasons” why Hayworth lost his last election and then try to defend them in a 2010 world?

  8. I haven’t received a call, but I would love to tell a pollster that I am proud to vote for JD.
    CS:Don’t forget to add Sen. McCain fought for the bailouts, regulation of our supplements, amnesty, McCain/Feingold, no drilling in ANWAR and Cap and Trade.
    Go JD!

    Uh, the healthcare national power grab bill which hasn’t been defeated as yet? If McCain were to pull it down, stab it in the neck and sit on it until it died, then OKAY.

    Until then, there’s no actual accomplishment.

  10. Oscar,
    I see JD as a politician who is way too full of bluster. I’s hard for me to get past that to see him as an improvement over McCain. Even in 2010.
    That said, I don’t care much for McCain and find it incredible that he is putting so much more effort into running against JD than he did Obama.

    The reason the popular vote spread in the 2008 Presidential race was only 5% had nothing to do with McCain. Palin excited the conservative base and got better turn out for the ticket. Palin packed people in at her events in numbers that rivaled Obama. McCain was luck to have people show up. If McCain had picked Liberman or another moderate as the VP it would have been a true landslide for Omaba.

    McCain is fighting hard now because if he loses he’s done unless he does a post primary loss switch to the donkey brand. The Presidency was a lost opportunity but not a loss of his current political position. This is for the whole enchilada.

    …….

    The proof of that is McCain’s zeal to sign Palin up to campaign for him.
    Totally exposes the phony narrative out of McCain’s own camp that Palin somehow damaged McCain’s chances.

    If that had been the case, McCain wouldn’t be seen within a thousands miles of Palin and would consider a good word from her as political campaignicide if he wanted to win an election.
    But nooo. McCain ran right to Palin for her endorsement.
    Actions speak louder than words. McCain NEEDS Palin more than she needs him.

    It would have been intersting to see how the 2008 race would have turned out if the GOP ticket had been reversed with the two charismatic newbees going head to head and the been there forever fossils putting everyone to sleep.

  14. I recieved a similar automated poll a few months ago before JD was officially in the race. I selected “Definitly Voting” and “Definately voting against McCain” and went about my day after hearing the obligitory “Paid for by Friends of John McCain.”

  15. C.S.

    The only reason that McCain took a frontal position regarding opposition to Healthcare, is the fact that he’s up for re-election and has strong conservative oppostion.

    You can bet if it’s defeated and he survives, he’ll be “reaching out” to the Obamites next year to revivy an “acceptable”
    Federal takeover! (Along with Joe Lieberman and “Lousy Lindsay” Graham!
