You know, I've been thinking about this "poll."

One of the missing links: who paid for it.

Was this a Herrera poll, paid for by Herrera or her keepers?

Do the numbers come close to making sense?


If anything, Herrera's buzzard shot should show a worried frown.

Herrera is the establishment candidate. And she's only getting 27% of the Republican vote?

And taking it a step further: 27+8+8 = 43. Why isn't the undecided 57%?

And what's the breakout? What are the crosstabs? Was the poll, or most of it, done in the 18th? What were the demographics? What was the breakdown of the respondents?

Polls without this kind of information are, essentially, worthless, if an honest assessment is to be made.

But on the surface, like in most of Herrera's positions, honesty isn't what took place here.

Like the old saw that a prosecutor can indict a ham sandwich, polls can make numbers say anything.

And, for you Herrera kool aid drinkers; yes... I would be asking the same questions regardless of the outcome when a poll is tossed out there with out the supporting evidence.

Publishing this poll without a close look at the cross tabs is the same kind irresponsible journalism the local rag engages in with their nonsensical, unsupported "polls" that show the people of Clark County support the waste of billions of dollars to replace a bridge that doesn't need replacing to bring loot rail into Clark County.

Herrera's Winged Monkeys, of course, could care less about that issue. The numbers say some of what they want them to say, although again, the 27% figure for the anointed candidate is troubling to the establishment that has built her like the Bionic Candidate, out of whole cloth, to do their bidding instead of ours.

Those trumpeting this effort should no better. And until the supporting documentation on this minuscule sample is released, it's worthless as a true indicator of what's going on in the 3rd CD.


  1. One thing that stood out in Nan's post on this poll, a sample of 300 people.


    They do more than that to try to convince us there is support for loot rail!

    I went to the polling site Nan says performed the poll and was unable to find this poll. I believe it is there, somewhere, but as i said on her post, credible bloggers provide links back to their information source, they don't send readers searching for the information.

    Maybe she will provide a link soon and we can see just what and who was behind this wild claim.


Let's keep it civil, people.
