Poll Shows Altschuler With Slight Lead

Shortly after a poll showed Democrat Rep. Tim Bishop largely ahead, Randy Altschuler's campaign released a poll of its own showing the Republican with a lead.

About a week after ahead of his Republican opponent, Randy Altschuler, the St. James businessman's campaign released results of another poll conducted Sunday that showed him with an edge over Bishop.

A survey of 1,000 likely voters in the First Congressional District conducted by Pulse Opinion Research found that 47 percent of those polled would favor Altschuler, while 43 percent would vote for Bishop, or Southampton.

. This time around Altschuler , a coup his campaign called a "game changer" when announced in March.

The poll showed that among those surveyed, 38 percent of individuals identified themselves as Republican, and 31 percent each identified themselves as either Democrat or "other."

Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney fared much better than Altschuler, gaining the support of 54 percent of those polled, while 40 percent said they would re-elect President Barack Obama.

Pulse cited a margin of error of 3 percent, with a 95 percent level of confidence.

Oh, and I hope you Romney supporters remember the idiotic faces of the zombies who were literally crying in the streets with happiness after that fool Obama was elected. If you Romney voters do the same thing I'm going to fucking puke.

There is truth to this statement. Unfotunately most people are too concerned with Dancing with the Stars, American Idol, Tom Cruise and Katie Homes and Justin Beiber's new hair do to really pay attention. I get a kick out of the fighting back and forth of Obama this and Romney that. People better wake up this two party nonsense doesn't work at the end of the day no matter which candidate is in office, we always get the same results. Both cadnidates are paing millions to run the biggest advertisement campaing in history. Each election it ges worse.

And while you're at it, take a look at some of these interesting facts about Bishop: www.bishopsfamilybusiness.com. Yes, it is a new microsite from Randy, but it sure exposes Bishop for some of the BS that he's been responsible for. Say what you want about Randy, but it's time for Bishop to find a new job.

Reporters are actors in make-up reading propaganda from a teleprompter to mostly mediocre minds
