Despite Missteps And Democratic Attacks, Brewer And Angle Hold Strong

September 16, 2010 by  

Despite missteps and Democratic attacks, Brewer and Angle hold strong Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Jan Brewer and the GOP nominee in the race for the United States Senate in Nevada, Sharron Angle, have established themselves as controversial and fiercely conservative politicians, but this does not seem to be hurting their poll numbers.

After last week’s infamous performance in an electoral debate, during which Brewer froze and stumbled in her opening statement and later refused to answer questions from reporters, she is still leading her Democratic opponent.

A new poll from Rassmussen Reports shows that the incumbent can count on 60 percent of the vote, against Democratic Attorney General Terry Goddard’s 38 percent. In fact, Brewer scored 57 percent in the same poll two weeks earlier, meaning she gained 3 percent after the debate.

Meanwhile, Nevada’s Angle — who became notorious for her plans to do away with Social Security, Medicare, Department of Education and the IRS, in addition to suggesting that poor people barter with their doctors in exchange for medical care — is in dead heat against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (R-Nev.)

"Independents are buying her economic argument by large margins," said Mason-Dixon pollster Brad Coker, quoted by Las Vegas Review-Journal.

"I think they would be backing her even more if she didn’t have all the baggage that’s giving some people pause," he added.ADNFCR-1961-ID-19940122-ADNFCR
