How is buying up foreclosed homes acting like a "vulture?" Would you prohibit investors from buying up these neglected homes and let them just sit there owned by the bank while weeds grow? David is helping improve these kinds of homes instead of letting them go to waste for years while the market has tanked. He fixes them up then rents them out in a lot better condition than if they were to just sit there owned by banks.
As for the poll, it doesn't matter that it was a conservative group, similar polls by Gallup, Time, etc. show him winning by equally large margins. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/other/generic_congressional_vote-901.html Sep 9, 2010
Harry Mitchell is toast. He voted for Obamacare, some of the TARP bailouts, and cardcheck. He doesn't support SB1070, which is even more popular in Arizona than it is in the rest of the country. He votes with Pelosi and the Obama administration and ignores the nonstop Tea Party protests outside his office, he doesn’t represent his Republican-leaning district. He is completely bought and paid for by the unions (http://epaper.aztrib.com/Repository/ml.asp?Ref=RVZULzIwMDcvMDMvMTIjQXIwMzgwMQ==&Mode=HTML&Locale=english-skin-custom) epository/ml.asp?Ref=RVZULzIwMDcvMDMvMTIjQXIwMzgwMQ==&Mode=HTML&Locale=english-skin-custom) Fortunately he is polling at only 44% and challenger David Schweikert is polling at a whopping 50% - really bad news for an incumbent at this point in the race. Schweikert is polling higher than most Republicans challenging Democrats around the country. With early ballots going out in the mail in less than a month, there is virtually no way Mitchell can catch up to Schweikert, there are too few undecided voters. The Democrats aren't likely to try and pour money into the race at this point to save him - http://www.espressopundit.com/2010/09/dnr.htmlSep 7, 2010
