New Poll Shows Virginians Overwhelmingly Reject Eric Cantor’s Political Gamesmanship

Just 27% of Virginia voters hold a favorable opinion

RICHMOND, VA — Yesterday, Public Policy Polling released the results a new survey showing Virginians have a very low opinion of Eric Cantor (VA-07).

“This poll shows that Virginians are tired of Eric Cantor’s partisan political gamesmanship. Virginians are looking to Congress for solutions — instead, Cantor spends his time on power politics and focused on his own personal political ambitions.” said Wayne Powell, Democratic candidate for Congress in Virginia’s 7th congressional district.

“Virginians all across the state reject Cantor’s ideological obstructionism. Virginians remember that, after last summer’s earthquake, Cantor held disaster relief for Louisa County hostage. He delayed help for his own constituents to score political points with his Tea Party cronies in his own party. Even Republicans are growing leery of Cantor’s extreme partisan power grabs,” added Powell.

Just 27% of Virginians have a favorable opinion of Cantor. Across demographic groups, Eric Cantor has alienated Virginia voters.
• Eric Cantor’s unpopularity in Virginia is gender blind: Only 28% of men and 27% of women have a favorable opinion of Cantor Across age groups, Cantor’s unpopularity holds constant. Just 25% of young voters have a favorable opinion of Cantor, and only 30% of voters older than 65 like Cantor.
• Only 16% of moderate voters have a favorable impression of Eric Cantor, and 51% of moderates have an unfavorable impression.
• Independent voters disapprove of Cantor by 49% unfavorable to 28% favorable. “These poll numbers prove what I have been hearing all around the district. Voters are tired of politics as usual and, in particular, are tired of Eric and his personal political games. People in the seventh district want a congressman who will work for them,” said Powell.

Wayne Powell is running for Congress in Virginia’s 7th congressional district. Wayne is a retired Army Colonel, a small business owner, and a community lawyer.

These are amazing numbers and they show that Cantor’s reckless grandstanding has badly damaged his reputation. Cantor used to be a nameless, faceless lackey of Tom DeLay, but now he’s stepped into the spotlight and Virginians don’t like what they’ve seen.

Relief will be my first response, and then anticipation. When the Democrats regain control of Congress in the landslide of 2012 they will be able to give us the single payer national health care plan we should have built in the first place. After the way they compromised with the Republicans and were backstabbed over the “Romneycare” reforms the Democrats will be willing to ignore the complaints of the few surviving stooges.

You know what else I am looking forward to? Elizabeth Warren in the Senate! Bring on November!

Lizzie asks…

Will fellow patriots please give your feedback on my speech?

I have been designated to open our next local TEA meeting with a speech, I have prepared the following remarks. Will my fellow patriots tell me what you think of my words, and if you would change anything? I don’t care what you socialist libs have to say, so keep your opinions to yourselves please. Here it goes.

The government is afraid of the guns people have because they have to have control of the people at all times. Once you take away the guns, you can do anything to the people. You give them an inch and they take a mile. I believe we are slowly turning into a socialist government. The government is continually growing bigger and more powerful, and the people need to prepare to defend themselves against government control.

Taxes are a joke. Regardless of what a political candidate “promises,” they will increase. More taxes are always the answer to government mismanagement. They mess up. We suffer. Taxes are reaching cataclysmic levels, with no slowdown in sight. Go ahead, take everything I own; take my dignity. Feel good as you grow fat and rich at my expense; sucking my tax dollars and property, tax dollars which justify your existence and pay your federal salary. Do you get it? By doing your evil job, you put me out of work. All you tyrannical mother ******* will swing in the wind one day for your treasonous actions against the Constitution of the United States. Remember the Nuremberg War Trials. “But…but…but…I only followed orders…” Die, you spineless cowardice bastards.

I reached the decision to go on the offensive – to put a check on government abuse of power, where others had failed in stopping the federal juggernaut running amok. I wish to use the words of Justice Brandeis dissenting in Olmstead to speak for me. He wrote, “Our government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or for ill, it teaches the whole people by its example.”

Those who betray or subvert the Constitution are guilty of sedition and/or treason, are domestic enemies and should and will be punished accordingly. It also stands to reason that anyone who sympathizes with the enemy or gives aid or comfort to said enemy is likewise guilty. I have sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and I will. And I will because not only did I swear to, but I believe in what it stands for in every bit of my heart, soul and being. I know in my heart that I am right in my struggle. I have come to peace with myself, my God and my cause. Blood will flow in the streets…Good vs. Evil. Free Men vs. Socialist Wannabe Slaves. Pray it is not your blood, my friend. Is a Civil War imminent? Do we have to shed blood to reform the current system? I hope it doesn’t come to that. But it might.

A man with nothing left to lose is a very dangerous man and his energy/anger can be focused toward a common/righteous goal. What I’m asking you to do, then, is sit back and be honest with yourself. Do you have kids/wife? Would you back out at the last minute to care for the family? Are you interested in keeping your firearms for their current/future monetary value, or would you drag that ’06 through rock, swamp and cactus…to get off the needed shot? In short, I’m not looking for talkers, I’m looking for fighters…And if you are a fed, think twice. Think twice about the Constitution you are supposedly enforcing (isn’t “enforcing freedom” an oxymoron?) and think twice about catching us with our guard down – you will lose…and your family will lose.

Thanks for your feedback.

Socialist “slaves”? Highways, roadways, our military, bridges and tunnels, mass transportation, the U.S. Post office—socialist systems all. How about Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, national parks, public schools and colleges, and laws that protect American consumers from corporate GREED—all socialist! A government of the people, by and for the people, is…guess what, little hotshot…AMERICAN PEOPLE! You are ranting against your fellow Americans! Tsk tsk tsk…So how do you feel about the Constitution’s separation of church and state embodied in its First Amendment and upheld by the Supreme Court for more than 100 years now? And how about that 14th Amendment to our Constitution—Freedom of Religion for ALL Americans—not just the nutjob fundamentalist few…is that one something you feel like defending against “all enemies” even if one of those enemy groups is the Tea Potty to which you have pledged your allegiance? I’m glad the respondent reported your rant to the FBI…I hope they do monitor your activities, your associations, and your teabagging evangelical cohorts from now on so that America can be safer.
