SD7 Poll: Glazer leads Bonilla by 10 points with election just days away

SD7 candidate Steve Glazer
STATE SENTATE | DISTRICT 7 | Steve Glazer's hopes of winning next Tuesday's special State Senate Seventh District race were buoyed Friday by an independent poll showing a 10-point advantage over fellow Democrat Susan Bonilla with just days before the May 19 election.

The telephone poll, conducted by KPIX-TV and Survey USA, shows Glazer holding 45 percent of 684 registered likely voters, followed by Bonilla with 35 percent. Twenty percent of those surveyed May 12-13 say they are still undecided.

According to the poll, much of Glazer's margin is due to support from independent voters, a voting bloc the moderate Glazer has strove to cultivate. Among this subset of voters, Glazer leads Bonilla, 46-26.

Glazer also leads among those who say they have already cast a vote-by-mail ballot, 52-39. The spread is notable since the high number of ballots already returned appear skewed toward Democratic voters. Supporters of Bonilla's campaign have pointed to the voter data as evidence of strong support for their candidate, although, both maintain the same party affiliation.

Unsurprisingly, Republicans support Glazer by a 5-to-1 margin, according to the poll, while Democrats support Bonilla by a 2-to-1 clip. Meanwhile, wealthy voters are backing Glazer by double-digits, yet those earning less than $40,000 a year are split between the candidates, 40-40.

The campaign's top wedge issue, whether or not BART employees should maintain the right to strike, highly favors Glazer. Sixty percent of those survey say they should not, while 30 percent want to maintain the status quo.

So, so proud to be supporting our next state senator, Steve Glazer. He is a man of, by, and for the PEOPLE, not the special interests. Come next Tuesday night the union whores are going to say 'Wha happened! We got decimated.' That's right, and the sound of the other shoe dropping, will be the PEOPLE taking back THEIR government from the special interest union whores.

Senator-elect Steve Glazer--he's THE PEOPLE'S CHOICE!

As voters, we always complain about the status quo when it comes to politics, and we lament the wretched state of things that come from the people we elect. In Glazer, we have an actual chance to change it up, and vote for a genuinely thoughtful person, not just a polished figurehead.

If people are dumb enough to still believe in politicians keeping their word, then they deserve to get screwed by the "polished man of the people" or "labors BFF." Lay down or bend over, may the best slime win.

Glazer is a consultant to the Corporate Pacs. That's where he gets almost all the money supporting his campaign, in the form of out of town conservative independent expenditures. I now hear the Koch brothers have decided to throw money into Glazer's campaign. You don't get anymore right-wing than that.

I have friends that live in Orinda and they are no party preference independent voters who hate Glazer and the fact that he speaks with a forked tongue out of both sides of his mouth. They trust Susan Bonilla more on middle class issues than the corporate Glazer. They told me just this weekend they will vote for Susan.

Glazer is the choice of stupid people who think he will make a difference and be a leader. Politicians are in for themselves. They don't give a crap about the people. Especiallly the dopes who vote them in.

If those lousy politicians spent their own money, then they would be beholding to no one. Trouble is, they all take money from special interest groups. None of them are clean. If you believe that, then you deserve what you will get. A good screwing over by a fake politician who isn't the people's choice. Just a stooge for big business or labor who will feed off the public trough and say "Thanks for voting me in you big dummy!"

Written like a true union whore. You shits couldn't win last November. You couldn't win in March. You couldn't win last night and you won't win at all. You whores just don't get it.

The public has wised up to the dirty and toxic union whores. We, the PEOPLE have taken back our political system. Union whores have been vanquished once again. Our dear Assemblywoman Cathy Baker and Senator-elect Steve Glazer will now make sure that BART strikes are illegal, as should always have been the case.

You continue to to get trounced by the PEOPLE. Dirty union sluts will no longer pick the public's pockets clean. You are irrelevant and vanquished. This district now goes moderate to conservative. Reality and politics 99!

The People crap on you like you did to us.

What hasn't been pointed out so far is that Glazer was almost totally funded by anti-consumer groups. The middle and lower class lost when he won. Our family doesn't belong to a union but I agree that 2016 will bring out more anti-Glazer voters and will probably spell his doom. Usually more progressive candidates win in presidential years. 23% voting in this election will be doubled or tripled in 2016. Those voters will represent the people.

Loving Senator Steve Glazer for the next 13 years!

You union sluts gave it your all, and the public decided that you're worthless and toxic. Steve is the People's Choice, as was evidenced by his election blowout victory.

This is Politics 99. He was never going to be allowed to fail since he always had the PEOPLE on his team. BART strikes are now on their way to the ash bin of history. Along with our dear Assemblywoman Cathy Baker, the district has been realigned to moderate-conservative. We who live in the district are very happy, indeed.

Steve's victory is your loss, and we will continue to remind you union sluts of that fact. Next up, we take out Dick Valley in the next election and throw him on the scrap heap of history along with MITTbranti, Whorbett, Bitchchanan, Second Place Sue, Whortese, can't write anymore since the list of LOSERS is so, so long.

How sweet it is for THE PEOPLE'S CHOICE WINNERS!!!

The " People's Choice"? We'll see in 2016. He just took a walk, instead of voting on a bill last week that would have raised the minimum wage to $13 an hour by 2017. So, he refused to take a stand on one of his first contentious issues. What a coward!
