According to this article at Newsmax.com Sen. McClintock not only has Michael Savages endorsement, but is in the double digits in the most recent poll. Though it's not too specific it does say that support for Sen. McClintock is growing.
In fact another story says that 30% of California voters polled felt Sen. McClintock was the winner of the debate held on Wednesday. Compare that to 22% favoring Lt. Gov. Bustamante as the winner, with 24% undecided.
& we have this from Newsmax.com:
"Yesterday during a rally in Temecula, McClintock laid it out as clearly as he could for the throng of supporters, stating he's 'always placed my principles above party,' and 'I am in this race to the finish line,' emphasizing that he will not step aside for Arnold.
McClintock's boring, but he's also ethical and principled, a long-missing character trait in California politics. Arnold has scheduled a Sept. 10 appearance on the O'Reilly Factor. It better be good, or it will be Arnold coming on-board with the McClintock team in order to help the Republicans avoid splitting the vote, not the other way around as all of punditry had suggested just one week back."
hmmm. If Sen. McClintock has "'always placed [his] principles above party" then that would explain why some Republican apologists won't endorse him.
As I've said before, I think California is lost. I could be wrong but California is a long ways down the road to destruction already with no signs of slowing down. However, Sen. McClintock may be able to put on the brakes. Certainly he stands a better chance of fixing what's broken than any of the other candidates.
Add that to the claims of racist behavior, albeit in the past, by Mr. Schwarzenegger & things are looking better for Sen. McClintock's chances.
As reported The Drudge Report last night, former Mr. Universe Robbie Robinson has accussed Mr. Schwarzenegger of making racist comments. Another former Mr. Unvierse, Rick Wayne, had made similar allegations.
If these turn out to be true Mr. Schwarzenegger's support base could fall enough to lose him the election. Then again, even if they're not true it could affect his image enough to make winning difficult.
