Ace: OMG, A New Poll Has Sexy Heart Doctor Rob Steele Ahead of John Dingell
Dr. Rob Steele: Oh, No
Ace: Oh, YESSS


I didn't think this one was going to happen. This was in my Let's-Make-A-Show-of-Believing-But-I-Don't-Believe category.


A new independent poll has the dean of the U.S. House, Rep. John Dingell trailing his Republican opponent, Rob Steele, by 4 percentage points.

The automated phone survey of 300 people in the 15th Congressional District showed Steele getting 43.8% of the vote. Dingell, a Dearborn Democrat and the longest-serving member of Congress, got 39.5%. About 11% were undecided. The gap is within the poll's margin of error of plus or minus 5.6 percentage points. The poll was conducted Monday.

Besides being a cardiologist (also married to a doctor, a psychiatrist)...

A long-time auto enthusiast, Dr Steele enjoys all things automotive, including autocross, racing, mechanical work and restoration. He is a lifetime member of both the National Motorist Association and NRA, and current member of the Washtenaw Sportsman Club. His grandfather and father started a tradition of service through decades of contributions in coaching, teaching and public school boards. He has had an interest in American history and has been a member of the Heritage Foundation for more than 20 years, and was a founding member of the SE Michigan Committee for Heritage.

A few quibbles about the poll: It's a small sample, has a high MoE, and seems pretty dramatic.

We'll have to see. But Dr. Steele is as compelling a candidate as you can want, and he's got an action-movie name so like, Dingell's done.

Lotta stuff at the link, like Dingell's greatest hits (calling a local radio show guy a "terrorist" for opposing ObamaCare).

From The Hostages (H2), where it's Big Boob Friday but they haven't posted the Big Boobs yet. But they will. They're good like that.

Thanks to Laura "Filthy Harlot" W.

Exactly: nine coconuts writes:

The difference in a lot of these out-of-nowhere contests is the ground game.

People calling likely voters and knocking on doors getting the normally docile right leaning voters excited enough to take a stand.

That's right. That's exactly right. Dingell's got the machine working for him; there is no machine at all for Dr. Rob Steele.

So you can either sit on your asses and just read about the wave, which won't come, because you're not making it come, or you can be the wave.

And, again, contact your local GOP offices to find out how you can help. Check out "someone's" post about GOTV -- he actually did it, and wants you to know it's pretty easy, people are friendly about it (bear in mind, they will be targeting you to address likely Republican leaners), and there's a 99% chance you'll meet someone wonderful there and get ridiculously laid.

Okay, he didn't say the last part, but you have to read between the lines here, people.

It really frustrates me that so many conservatives talk a good game about taking our nation back and restoring liberty and securing a better America for our children but do not walk the walk.
