Things Are Looking Good for Brownback

Filed under: Election 2008,Polling Data,Sam Brownback — Psycheout @ 6:22 pm

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.

Update 2: New York Press has picked up the story with Brownback’s That Close?:

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!

  1. It is definitely not time to get complacent, but it’s certainly not time to panic, either. In December 2003, Howard Dean was the frontrunner for the Dems.

    From Zogby:

    Former Vermont Governor Dr. Howard Dean, who enjoyed a 40% – 17% lead in October polling of New Hampshire Democratic primary likely voters over Massachusetts Senator John Kerry, has stretched that lead in December polling to 42% – 12%. Retired general Wesley Clark is third at 9%, followed by Connecticut Senator Joseph Lieberman with 7%.

    So there you go…

  2. Well, what do you expect from the media? They don’t know anything about governing but they know all about smears and slander. However, I take it as a good sign that they are saying bad things now because it shows they are worried. They would never make so much “noise” about a true conservative unless they were afraid of him.

    p.s. I’m going to sound like an old ungrateful codger but is there anyway to make the print a little bigger? If not I’ll just dig out the old reading glasses.

  3. […] I first addressed the CPAC poll results in Things Are Looking Good for Brownback. So B4B readers are already familiar with the results. But what is striking at how little was spent […]
