Time for an Arizona Independent Voter Poll in MCSO race. Democratic leaning poll is flawed and old poll favored Mike StaufferThursday, September 13th, 2012
The time has come for an Arizona Independent Voter Poll in the Maricopa County Sheriff Office race. Democratic leaning poll is flawed (put on by liberal and former Union worker Randy Parraz and his partner via Chad Snow who make up Citizens for a Better Arizona).
Laurie Roberts a columnist of Arizona Republic a/k/a AZ CENTRAL writes:
Ah yes, those crucial Independent voters. Did you know that Maricopa County consists of
36% registered Republicans
35% registered Independents
29% registered Democrats?
It is true, which is why the Corrupt Sheriff Joe Arpaio is eerily silent when attacking the (Independent) Candidate via Mike Stauffer. Mike Stauffer’s campaign adviser via West Kenyon wrote:
It should be duly noted that several outspoken Democrats who had been focused on removing Arpaio from office have been side tracked over the past several months. Arpaio is no longer the focus, Stauffer is the focus. No longer are they trying to remove Arpaio from office but Stauffer from the ballot. Again, Arpaio could not be happier as he gets to sit back and be ignored. I’m sure Arpaio sees this as a first class gift from the Maricopa County Democratic Party and a sure potential strategy to win again.Arpaio knows one thing for sure, If he mentions Stauffer’s name, he legitimizes Stauffer as the very qualified contender he is. As far as mentioning Penzone, as he does, is no big deal because there is nothing to legitimize. Arpaio knows full well a Democratic opponent doesn’t stand a chance and he is perfectly delighted to to have Penzone in the mix.
While there have been a few who have begged and pleaded for Stauffer to drop out recently and perhaps thinking they were on to something new, a little known fact is Arpaio beat you to it. Until now, no one knows that Arpaio made demands of the Scottsdale Police Department to get Mike out of the race nearly 3 years ago! Why? Because Arpaio knew Mike stood the best chance against him as anyone ever has. Unlike Penzone, Arpaio doesn’t waste his time on a “nobody.” More than likely Penzone has not been given the distinguished honor of being asked by Arpaio himself to leave the race, again, Arpaio knows there is no contest.
In closing, Penzone is legitimizing the Stauffer camp on a daily basis. With wild “poll” numbers, with each one indicating Arpaio won, to indicating Stauffer only has a “few” percentages points, Penzone is proving his insatiable quest to delegitimize Stauffer, not remove Arpaio. The Penzone camp is not spending money to oust Arpaio, rather to stop Stauffer. They are also claiming on a consistent basis that Stauffer has “no backing, no credibility…” yet they are spending like there is no tomorrow to stop this “nobody.”
Now that the ballots are on the press, everyone can rest assured Mike Stauffer will appear on your November 6 ballot. Our polling shows one thing for sure. Some one will be sheriff on Nov 6, and two people won’t and may the most qualified candidate win. The voters will speak. And That’s the American Way.
You see, Arpaio is smart enough to know that he cannot risk losing the Independent voters which is why he is allowing the Penzone camp to attack Independent voters, women voters and most importantly Mike Stauffer.
Paul Penzone has his panties in a bunch because we have been calling him out on his domestic violence report that is in his history.
Independent voters of America has a very good story on why Independent voters matter. They write:
Why is it significant that there’s an independent candidate in the race? Because it will offer a thermometer test for the temperature of Arizona’s rapidly growing faction of independent voters, and whether they’ll support Independent candidates for office.
Despite the fact that electoral math guru Nate Silver already reminded us that “Arizona is probably not a swing state” earlier this spring, independent voters currently make up the second largest voting group in the state, after the Republican Party. While Arizona politics has recently been known on a national level for Arpaio’s antics and Republican Governor Jan Brewer’s finger pointing tarmac greeting of Obama, the state isn’t as extremely conservative as one would think, at least as measured by voter demographics. The number of “mavericky” registered Independents has risen sharply by 23% since John McCain’s 2008 run for President, and now sits at 1,210,241, 34% of all registered voters. With these statistics in light, we’re happy to shine the light Stauffer’s candidacy.
Stauffer recently turned in 29,764 signatures to meet a ballot access requirement of 19,410 signatures….
Since the Democratic organizations are producing flawed polls, they have now forced our hand to work on an Independent Poll.
Let the games begin, but before we go, I will show you a story written by James King who used to write for the Phoenix New Times and the poll he conducted. Keep in mind the poll below is old, and this is why it is time for us to produce and Independent poll that is not led by a Democratic person and one that is not led by a Republican person or organization. It needs to be conducted by a true Independent outfit.
