PROP 121 expected to pass according to independent survey – Good news for people who are tired of extremism and partisanshipTuesday, October 9th, 2012
Good news for you Independent Arizona voters who are tired of the extremism in Arizona and sick of partisanship bickering.
According to an independent survey, Prop 121 is expected to pass. This is wonderful news to those of us independent registered voters who are supporting independent candidates who have the experience and education to run for office. For the first time in Arizona history, independent voters now make up the 2nd largest voting block in our state and in Maricopa County.
Please remember that an independent candidate for Maricopa County sheriff is running against the extremist Sheriff Joe Arpaio and I believe Mike Stauffer is Arpaio’s strongest opponent since we (independent voters) make up the 2nd largest voting bloc now.
Prop 14 in California is similar to Prop 121 and I have so many good success stories as a result of Prop 14 helping good candidates.
See below survey:

With early balloting beginning on 11 October, a new independent pollfinds the Arizona Top 2, Open Primary initiative likely to pass. No recent, independent polling data has been available for some time, apart from those supporting or opposing the initiative that would create a non-partisan Top-Two Open Primary.
The survey of 1,065 Arizona residents found 45% are inclined to vote for the Open Primary Initiative and 31% against it, with 9% undecided and 15% not planning to vote. Looking only at likely voters, this gives the measure a 16 point advantage with 10 % undecided.
On November 6th, Arizona voters will be deciding whether to change their election system. Under the current semi-closed primary system, partisan voters select Party candidates for the general election ballot. Since 2000, independents are permitted to vote in a party primary if and only if the parties allow them, decided for each primary, and if and only if the independent votes for only one party slate. Open Elections – Open Government advocates for Proposition 121 would institute a Constitutional amendment. All voters would vote on a single slate of candidates and the top two vote-getters would advance to the general election. FULL STORY>>>
