Final CA-50 Poll

Tomorrow, we won't need to worry about the 18 candidates in the 50th District special election. It will be decided by the voters. The final Datamar poll, released today, shows little change in the various candidate's relative positions.

I think that Datamar is continuing to under represent Democrats in its polling. Those polled this time around by Datamar include 54.3% Republican and only 33.2% Democrats. It doesn't really matter; the polls open in less than 12 hours.

My earlier prediction of a Busby mandate (52%) aside, the only race here is for the potential Republican standard bearer in the June election.

Busby leads all candidates with a 40.7% preference.

The leading Republican contenders are still Roach (16.1%) and Bilbray (15.6%). My Busby prediction may be way off, but I think it is safe to predict a sleepless night for Roach and Bilbray. Howard Kaloogian scrapped up some support from the bottom feeders in the race and is now at 10.4%. It is good to see the 50th District repudiate Kaloogian's message of obediance to the glorious leader and his hatred of the Bill of Rights.

Tomorrow is the day.

"To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow; a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing."
