Schwarzenegger Running Away With Race, Say Polls

Posted on Aug 29, 2006
Schwarzenegger and Angelides
From FoxNews

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Phil Angelides

“The Governator” has opened up a big lead over opponent Phil Angelides in the November California governor’s race. It’s quite a comeback considering how badly voters spanked Arnold by voting down his four ballot proposals last year. (Kos has the details).

Daily Kos:

It really is a shame, but I’m not seeing how Angelides and the Democrats pull this one off.

SurveyUSA. 8/25-28. Likely voters. MoE 4.4% (No trend lines)

Schwarzenegger (R) 52
Angelides (D) 38

While I like SUSA a lot, I have to note that they’ve never seemed comfortable polling California, so many doubt their results in the Golden State. Unfortunately, the top pollsters in the state seem to agree that Arnold has all the momentum.

The Gropenfuhrer did not win the ” recall ” black
mass that herr rove arranged w/kenny boy to rape california. The rigging took place in Alameda, Tulare, San Diego and a couple other counties.
And the fix is in with this flunky McPherson in there now.
So don’t believe it. We’re not masochists here in CA. It’s just more of boy george playing with his prey.

I remember feeling embarrassed, when I first moved here, about the fact that the Terminator is the govener of my new home.  Man, it’s good to live in a blue state but why would anyone vote for the Terminator; he’s an actor and he’s not a very good one which is as evident during his speaches as it is in his movies.  How were all of these people duped.

This California is a weird place.  When I meet people here, the first question they all ask is, “What do you do?”  How audacious and rude.

It will take me a while to get used to these brazen people and their Terminator govorner.

Look Schwarzenegger is just as much a fascist as any Bushite and needs to be gotten rid of.  Why are the dimocrats such milk toast useless creeps.  We need a united front to fight the fascists and we need to get out in the streets. The world can’t wait is trying to organize an opposition to the fascists.  What type of society do we want to leave to our grandchildren?  Please give some dollars to the world can’t wait and get out in the streets and raise hell.  Also go door to door and defeat Schwarzenegger.
