As I mentioned last week, there’s a little-publicized special election coming up in just a few days in the 19th Congressional District in Florida. Robert Wexler (mercifully) retired and his vacant seat is being sought by Democrat Ted Deutch (who in just the past month has expressed his antipathy both to the Second Amendment and the lives of unborn children) and Republican businessman and entreprenuer Edward Lynch.
Comes a new poll showing a whopping 34% support for the Stalinization of Health Care Act of 2010 with 54% opposed. But that’s not all:
Opposition is significantly strong among two crucial blocs: those older than 65 and voters with no party affiliation. Seniors disfavor the bill by a 65-25 percent margin, while independents oppose the law 62-34.
Hopefully the folks down there will rise up and take this seat from the socialists in the Democratic party. (Ted Deutch, natch, is so excited about the government take-over that the top line of his campaign website is a frothy, breathless endorsement of its passage.)
