Precinct Preference Poll Results

In my precinct, which is in Wheat Ridge in Jefferson County, we had eight people show up.  Here are the preference poll results:

Governor

McInnis     5
Maes        3

Senate

Buck         6
Tidwell     1
Wiens      1

I was disappointed that so many people, in my precinct and in the state at large, prefer McInnis–at least for now.  If you think McInnis is a conservative, read this post from December of 2008.

I voted for Wiens, but I could support Buck from what I’ve heard.  I’m just glad no one voted for Norton.  (I did remind everyone that she had supported Referenda C and D.)

Was Scott McInnis Paying Attention Last Month?

According to a report at Rocky Mountain Right, “Former U.S. Rep. Scott McInnis has openly argued for . . . moderating the GOP’s image and fielding more centrist candidates.”  The Republican Party did just that with McCain this year and lost.  A conservative might have won, but we’ll never know because the only real conservatives, Tom Tancredo and Fred Thompson, dropped out early in the primary, and Republicans were left with a moderate candidate who was selected by Democrats, independents, and the media.

Anyone who thinks the Republican Party should “[moderate] on social issues” and move more to the left should look at the results for Proposition 8 in California.  Despite the draw of having Obama on the ticket, the proposition that defined marriage as a union between a man and a woman, a position supported by social conservatives, won handily.

When conservative candidates and issues were on the ballot, they usually won.  Leftists will vote for Democrats not Republicans who campaign as Democrat light.

Republican Candidate for U.S. Senate in 2010

Over at Rocky Mountain Right, you can vote for who you would support for U.S. Senate in 2010.  The options are

  • Scott McInnis
  • Jane Norton
  • Bill Owens
  • John Suthers
  • None of the Above

I voted for None of the Above.  I might be willing to support McInnis or Suthers, but I want to know more about them.

We need conservative candidates from the Republican Party, and by supporting Referenda C and D, Owens caused a lot of people, including me, to question how conservative he is.  Norton is so closely associated with Owens that I wonder how conservative she is, too.

I can’t help thinking that there must be other and better potential candidates.
