Trivia Tidbit of the Day: Part 609 -- Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison's Free Fallin' Poll Numbers.

Texas Lyceum Poll-

Back in January, I signed on with Governor Rick Perry, because he just "gets it" on so many levels. Not only is Perry the clear conservative in the 2010 gubernatorial race in Texas, his likely opponent, Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, has increasingly rubbed me the wrong way in recent years with her obscene earmarking, her incessant desire to be liked by the establishment left-wing media, and her penchant for big government programs (such as her prominent support for the expansion of CHIP from a safety net into a new middle class entitlement, her insistence on UI expansion, and-- of course-- her bailout votes).

When I signed on to help out Rick Perry's campaign, the few polls that were out there generally showed KBH far ahead, sometimes by as many as 20 or 25 points.

How accurate those polls were, I don't know. How accurate yesterday's Texas Lyceum poll showing Governor Perry up by 12 points is-- again-- I don't know. But there is a very clear trend over the past few months away from Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison:

In public polls, KBH went from 25 points up, to 6 points up, to 4 points down, to 12 points down. Each month, it has just gotten worse for her. A visual of those margins:

Senator Hutchison is just plain out-of-touch with Texas. I think more people would be willing to accept her argument that it's her turn if: a) Texas weren't kicking so much tail right now compared to the rest of the country, and b) KBH weren't so squishy and hard to read on so many issues, including protecting life.

Poll numbers are not everything, though. If you're inclined to contribute some cash to help Governor Perry win in 2010, check out my personal Perry fundraising page.

Some more disclaimer stuff. The thoughts expressed in this blog are my own and are not reflective of any candidate, organization, or any other entity. As I have noted many times on WILLisms.com, I work for Governor Perry. WILLisms.com remains an extension of the blogging I have done here since January of 2005. You may remember other disclaimers for other organizations/candidates here in the past. This one is really no different.

Senator Hutchison is too fond of pork!

If you are in Central Texas and want to get involved with Governor Perry's campaign twitter me @JonMcClellan

The best part about this entire post is that you didn't put those ridiculous graphs together yourself. Honestly, you made charts and graphs and a video about these polls, and then say "How accurate those polls were, I don't know." Get a hobby.

She can't possibly be making the argument that it's her turn, is she? Turn? How about earn? She's a great example of an empty suit hung on a clothesline.
