New poll shows Democrats really are dumb enough to vote for Alvin Greene

by editor on June 17, 2010

According to a new Rasmussen poll, Republican Jim DeMint leads Democrat Alvin Greene by a 37% margin.

Here’s how Rasmussen describes the situation:

While South Carolina Democrats fret over how an unemployed political unknown with a felony charge hanging over him won their party’s Senate nomination, the first Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of the general election contest finds incumbent Republican Senator Jim DeMint far in the lead.

DeMint, who is seeking a second six-year term, earns support from 58% of Likely Voters in South Carolina, while Democratic nominee Alvin Greene picks up 21% of the vote. Nine percent (9%) like some other candidate, and 13% are undecided.

Rasmussen says DeMint is “far in the lead”, but we don’t think that’s the real story told by this survey.

The Democrats – nationally and in South Carolina – insist that Greene must be a Republican plant, that a dimwit like this couldn’t possibly win their primary honestly, that their voters can’t possibly be dumb enough to give him their votes, that voter fraud was committed with magnets.

Yet according to Rasmussen, Greene would still garner 21% of the votes if the election were held today even though his own party calls him a fraud and he’s revealed himself to be, shall we say, less than a genius.

There are 2,585,911 registered voters in South Carolina. voter turn-out was 34.6% in the last non-presidential general election. If these totals hold up in this election, it means that Greene’s 21% of the vote translates into 187,892 votes, which is, of course, substantially more than he received in the primary.

We don’t know how to break this to the Democrats gently, so we’ll just be blunt: It looks like Democrats are dumb enough to vote for Alvin Greene.

Republicans really are dumb enough to vote for Sarah Palin.


but between the two choices though, Green was the better candidate. The other candidate may be more articulate but he’s establishment – part of the problem


Surprised? Not really. Look who they (and a high enough suckered Indies and fair number of Repub turncoats) elected POTUS in 2008. Nothing surprises me after 1992, 1996 and 2008.

If Greene can some how find a husband, he will win in a landslide. The people will have to vote for him to show they are not racist and homophobic. Add to that, the media are handing him a free campaign and we might see some pressure on Demint. Now if Demint had an affair with Tipper Gore….ahhh political theater, it is the best.
