95% say stay the course in Iraq: New survey

You read it here first, but with the media's interest in reporting any poll anyone gives them, few or no questions asked, I expect you'll see in the mainstream media soon:

Ninety-five per cent of Wisconsin residents want to stay the course in Iraq, according to a recent poll.

Respondents also give high marks to Rep. F. Jim Sensenbrenner and State Sen. Tom Reynolds, who have come under some criticism for the courageous positions they have taken. Sensenbrenner was rated "excellent" by 83% and Reynolds by 70%.

The survey was conducted by the Wisconsin Conservative Digest.
Who was surveyed? Funny you should ask.

Digest Editor Bob Dohnal reports:
Surveys were sent out to GOP leaders, members of the Heritage Foundation, subscribers to Human Events and other miscellaneous leaders throughout the state. Returns came from throughout the state about evenly, not just from the Milwaukee area.

The questions were about current events and Conservative leaders. We wanted to find out how the people felt about these issues that are not fairly addressed in the mainstream media.
Dohnal said the Reynolds results were especially good to see:
Spivak and Bice, the left wing loonies from the Milwaukee Journal have strongly made vicious, personal smears against Reynolds and his family, mainly because Dan Bice is strongly opposed to any Christians that are also conservative.
Left wing loonies? Then what am I?

If you feel you must read more about this survey, and what it means for this fall's elections, have at it. I've heard quite enough. This one may even be more suspect than Strategic Vision's polls, which some people I know believe to be fabricated.

UPDATE: Folkbum Jay Bullock offers a more comprehensive ramble, titled Through the Looking Glass.

May be even more suspect?

Ethics are shaping up as a prime issues due to the recent convictions of a variety of politicos from both sides of the aisle and the failures of the legislature to pass any meaningful reforms. It appears that Mark Green is squeaky clean on this issue while Doyle has been logrolling for four years on every major issue.

It is good to see that Bob has not lost his sense of humor.

The candidates who talk about the things that really matter to the voters will get them out and win. Those issues are basically the ones that affect their homes and families, their jobs, their autos, and their hobbies. If you get caught out in the Netherlands talking about the gold standard, and other esoteric problems you will go home empty handed.

I wonder if he means health care in the former, and defending marriage in the latter.

Actually if Dohnal thinks the Spice Boys are left wing loonies, what does that make HIM?
