More bad News For Michael Castle




Michael Castle's woes continue to mount. This most recent SurveyUSA poll has Bush at 26% approval in Delaware. (TWENTY SIX PER CENT!!!)

Although Castle has been working hard to distance himself from his party's inept, corrupt leader - his voting record speaks for itself. When Bush asked Congress to jump, Castle jumped. When he asked them to roll over, Castle was obedient.

Now, he will pay at the polls for his reliable obedience to President Trainwreck.

Castle will pay because not only do 72% (SEVENTY TWO PERCENT !!!) of Delawareans think that Bush/Castle style governance sucks, they feel passionate about it. While Bush/Castle supporters are weak in that support. With a full slate of great Democratic challenegers like RICHARD KORN beating the bushes on the local level, and Howard Dean as the DNC chair already working on GOTV efforts, this all spells trouble for Castle in November.

Comments:
This is BIG news!
 
Jason, you have redefined the word "reach."
 
Jason your optimism is to be commended but let's be real here.

In '04 Castle got 69.1% while Bush only 45.6%. Roughly 23% of voters supported Castle but not Bush.

Even if 3/4 of those voters flip against Castle (not likely) he still wins.

3/4 of 23% ? Where did I put my slide rule ?

This year is different. The "Flip" is on. Here is a case study. My 70 year old father, a consumate "moderate" democrat. A long tim "Castle" ticket spliter is going for Spiivack. It has dawned on him that Castle is part of the problem.

If Castle has lost my father - he is in deep trouble. I'm not reaching - this is looking like the Nixon impeachment year.
 
From personal experience, believe me, you can convince yourself of anything when it comes to the chances of a candidate you support. I feel for you.
 
Who was Castle running against in '04? Yeah, I thought so.

The worst possible person you Dems could put forward. But at least he didn't have to lend his campaign $90,000.
