The MSM and even a number of “conservatives” would like you to believe that our man, Samuel Brownback hasn’t a ghost of a chance and should just pack it in. The naysayers would probably scoff and spin or more likely ignore this latest bit of news. According to our friends at Rasmussen Reports:
The first Rasmussen Reports telephone survey gauging general-election support for Republican Senator Sam Brownback shows him trailing Democratic Senator Hillary Clinton among likely voters by the narrow margin of just five percentage points. It’s Clinton 46% Brownback 41%.
Not bad for a relatively unknown second-tier conservative candidate who only announced less than two months ago.
Read the whole thing. Rasmussen’s summary concludes with this obvious but too often overlooked fact:
But the enthusiasm especially for Giuliani among Republicans persists despite the mayor’s willingness to openly acknowledge disagreements with social conservatives on abortion and other hot-button issues.
Understated, but this translates to: “Giuliani is not a conservative.” This should be obvious to anyone with two or more brain cells but I thought the point should be stressed.
To be so close to the Democrat party’s heir apparent, so far from 2008, is impressive to say the least. I think with this news, Brownback supporters can look forward to the weekend with a smile on their faces and cheer in their hearts. But now is not the time for complacency.
Sam still faces an uphill climb to get his message past the left-wing noise machine. This would be a good time to send Sam a brief letter of support and encouragement, and possibly a contribution of any amount, large or small. Think of it this way: how much would you pay to avoid eight more years of the Clinton’s bringing shame to the White House and the dismantling of those things that make America great? Think about it and contribute in some way. It’s time to join Team Brownback and propel Sam to victory in 2008!
Hat Tip: The Hedgehog Report
Update 1: See also Simply Yahoo News. This poll is spreading through the internet. Will it pierce the MSM cone of silence? Somehow I doubt it.
Maybe it’s a sign of a coming 2008 Republican turnaround, or maybe it’s more evidence that people have already made up their mind about Hillary Clinton, but a new Rasmussen poll finds Kansas Senator and conservative Republican Sam Brownback within striking distance of the former first lady.
Things are definitely heating up!
