Webster Leads Grayson Comfortably (FL08)

Via Sunshine News: Poll: Webster Beats Down ‘Angry’ Grayson

Holding a steady 7-point lead over a controversial and increasingly malodorous incumbent, Republican Daniel Webster is poised to knock out U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson, a new Sunshine State News Poll shows.

Webster, a former state senator, leads Grayson, D-Orlando, 48-41. Florida TEA Party candidate Peg Dunmire garnered 4 percent, No Party Affiliation candidate George Metcalfe got 1 percent, and 5 percent of respondents were undecided.

In a previous poll, conducted Sept. 25, Webster led Grayson 43-36, an identical 7-point margin.

Of the candidates who deserve to lose this year, Alan Grayson is at the top of the list.

  1. I see a profitable future for Grayson as a fill-in guest host for Ed Schultz on MSNBC, they are sort of alike

    Well after successfully arguing for modernization of the Northeast, and his spirited resistance to Andrew Jackson’s dreadful power grab, I for one think its time that we have Daniel Webster in congress again. Extreme old age be damned.
