PPP: Dole vs. Jerry Meek and Ted Kaplan

Our newest poll results can be found here and at our blog here. Here are the numbers:

Dole vs. Jerry Meek
Dole 47%
Meek 32%

Dole vs. Ted Kaplan

Dole 47%
Kaplan 28%

Meek and Kaplan do not perform as well as Democrats with better statewide name recognition like Perdue, Moore and Cooper. However, Dole is still below 50% against relative unknowns.

Bush Approval
Approve 41%
Disapprove 55%

This is an improvement from last month when only 35% approved. For whatever reason, Bush’s numbers nationwide have been ticking upward slightly.

Dole Approval
Approve 48%
Disapprove 41%

The North Carolina General Assembly finished its legislative session early this month. Do you approve or disapprove of the job the legislature did this year, or do you not know enough to have an opinion?

Approve 14%
Disapprove 45%
Don’t know enough 41%

I’m not sure what to make of these results, but it’s fascinating.

There's been a lot of LTE Chatter

From wing nuts who talk about how awful the Legislature is. I can't believe that they fall for it. We're doing our best in this county to counter it, using a lot of the points made by Wayne Goodwin in his blog, here.

bush's numbers improve

Is it because he's on vacation and he's obviously good at that?

And the price of gas has dropped a bit

Bush numbers have historically dropped as the price of gas has risen and vice a versa. It galls me how shallow Americans are.

Shallow indeed.

Now that we have Vonage, and there's no long distance charge, I make that call every other day. :-D I'm waiting for them to say "Oh, hello, Mrs. Cloud."

Technology is a good thing. A good thing indeed.

Sorry to be off topic ...

but I had kinda been wondering if it was "L. Cloud" or "LC. Loud". And i don't mean anything by the "Loud" bit, it's just my anagram-ish way of looking at letter combinations.
Cheers..

I actively oppose gerrymandering. Do you?

HAHAHA!

My name is Linda Cloud. But I'm pretty loud about things, too, so - it's all good. :-D

Great googly moogly.

When the heck are we going to have a candidate?
....

That's it, someone find me a "consulting" job so I can run for Senate and my family won't starve. Power to the people!!!

(I'm already getting 4 hours of sleep a night, this can't be much worse, right????)

You go, Robert

Wouldn't it be fun to have a candidate that thinks outside the box?
