Aronberg poll shows 49-24 lead over Keever in state attorney race

by George Bennett | October 26th, 2012

Democrat Dave Aronberg‘s internal polling shows him with a 2-to-1 lead over Republican rival Dina Keever in the Palm Beach County state attorney’s race, according to a memo released by Aronberg’s campaign today.

The poll of 400 likely voters was conducted Monday through Wednesday and shows Aronberg at 49 percent, Keever at 24 percent and no-party candidate Robert Gershman at 5 percent with 22 percent undecided. The poll by the Kitchens Group has a 4 percent margin of error.

While the poll was in the field, WPTV Channel 5 reported Tuesday that the state Ethics Commission had decided to investigate an August complaint alleging that Aronberg improperly engaged in campaign activities before he announced his candidacy in January.

Tuesday was also the day that Keever began her TV campaign with ads citing the ethics investigation.

Aronberg, who says he’s confident the ethics complaint will be dismissed, has been running TV spots for several weeks and has spent about $300,000 on television time.

    Palm Beach county, where no bad deeds get punished.

  2. Where's Justice Says:

    Wow, Dave’s been a politician for over 12 years in this county and STILL 22% are undecided with a 4 point margin of error? You’ve got some ‘spaining to do Mr. Aronberg!

  3. Obamahater Says:

    People in PBP are just stupid. After all this guy has been caught doing, yey people will still vote for him. Guess you get what you give.

  4. wyn Says:

    Who is Dina Keever? What is her resume? Did she do any campaigning? It takes a crook to catch a crook. If we can have a Medicare fraudster for governor, why not Aronberg for state attorney

  5. Expendable Americans Says:

    How come there are no articles on the failure of President Obama to send in HELP when requested by a now dead former Seal in Benghazi?

    Is that to explosive for the Post Times?

    Hold back news so the public can be informed?

    Americans EXPECT support to go to Americans who serve in dangerous countries.

    A raped and dead Amb. and 3 other Americans. The Seal’s call for assistance was DENIED!

    1. President KNEW what was happening in Benghazi.
    2. It was being VIEWED…real time, as it was happening!
    3. A call from former Seal Tyrone Woods for HELP was DENIED!
    4. Help was an HOUR AWAY!
    5. 2 Americans DIED the last hour of the battle

    This is not the America we used to be. Protecting those who serve in dangerous places is an afterthought!

    It’s a sad day when those serving our country are EXPENDABLE!

    I appreciate those who serve in dangerous place!

    Shame on the Post Times for not keeping county residents informed.

  6. NO=ALL AMENDMENT Says:

    VOTE NO on ALL Amendments. Too many, Too wordy, Too convoluted.

    Don’t allow MORE TAXES to be CUT from some ‘special groups’ -first responders-fire fighters, cops, correction officers, paramedics, THE REST OF US TAXPAYERS WILL HAVE TO PICK UP THAT COST, DIFFERENCE.

    It’s ANOTHER GIVEMEEEEE for a SPECIAL GROUP!

    If passed, then WE will have to PAY MORE to make up the CUT that would be given to SPECIAL GROUPS!

    They already get
    free take home cars,
    high pay,
    early retirment,
    nearly FULL PAY at retirment,
    free healthcare.
    Their contracts say the public has to pay for their dry cleaning and SHOES!

    We, the taxpayers, have to PAY them while they grocery shop using engines instead of their own vehicles, sitting IN the Publix’s parking lot.

    THEY GET PLENTY ALREADY, don’t pick up the tab for more.

    AND

    AMENDMENT 4 GIVES A TAX BREAK FOR SNOWBIRDS, those with part times homes are asking for a TAX BREAK, too!

    The rest of us will have to make up the difference for Their taxbreak.

    NO ON ALL AMENDMENTS

    If you do not vote NO, and leave it blank, it’s just like a ‘yes’ vote.

    VOTE NO! ON ALL AMENDMENTS or you will be paying MORE taxes!

  7. Obama/Dems2012 Says:

    Top 10 Reasons to Vote FOR President Obama

    1) When he came to the White House, the USA was experiencing multiple catastrophes. The financial sector had collapsed, the auto industry had collapsed, the housing market had collapsed, the jobs market had collapsed, the health care system was entirely out of control, we were mired in two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — AND HE GOT US OUT OF ALL OF THOSE SITUATIONS with calm determination and NO help at all from Republicans

    2) The stimulus created millions of jobs, prevented millions of Americans from falling into poverty, and stopped the slide into a Depression economy

    3) Obamacare fixed our broken health system. Obama extended the life of Medicare, created a private sector free market exchange system (that Republicans used to support) to increase choice and bring down the cost of care. No co-pay for Senior check-ups or women’s exams. Allows children up to 26 to stay on parents’ insurance. Covers almost everyone in America including 30-50 million Americans who suffered no healthcare. No bankruptcy from no health insurance, banned discrimination on pre-existing conditions, banned lifetime benefits caps. Obamacare cuts the deficit and repealing it would INCREASE the deficit.

    4) President Obama fights for the Middle Class, Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security, women’s rights, voting rights, and veterans

    5) President Obama has committed more aid to Israel than any other president and built the Iron Dome to protect Israelis from Hezbollah rockets. Also instituted the toughest sanctions ever on Iran.

    6) Obama took action against China’s illegal trade practices and won every case, helping protect American jobs. Obama supports ending tax cuts for companies who ship jobs overseas and creating new ones for companies who bring jobs home

    7) Got Osama bin Laden, Anwar al-Awlaki, Muommar Kaddafi, and almost the entire Al Qaeda apparatus.
    8) Saved the American auto industry and the millions of American jobs in manufacturing

    9) Doubled CAFE standards for gasoline efficiency so your next car will go twice as far on a gallon of gas. Oil production is up. Dependence on foreign oil is down.

    10) President Obama has the right priorities. Manufacturing, clean domestic energy, education, immigration, and cutting the debt by $4 trillion

    Vote for Barack Obama and Democrats, the clear choice for America’s future!

  8. $HELDON ADEL$ON Says:

    Adelson Has Donated $54 Million This Election Cycle

    Casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, among those whose contributions are disclosed, is far and away the largest donor to independent political efforts in both the 2012 election and in any single election in modern history. The casino billionaire, along with members of his family, has given $54.44 million to super PACs to help elect a variety of Republican candidates, from Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney on down to a House of Representatives race in New Jersey.

    The amount that Adelson, the 12th richest person in the United States, has given far exceeds the amounts given by other super PAC donors. At the same time, his $50 million-plus contributions are precisely in line with the demonstrated purpose of the new independent political power of the super PAC. These groups, born from two controversial court rulings — most prominently the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United ruling — exist almost uniquely as political arms of the very rich and already entrenched interests.

    Sixty-seven percent of all super PAC donations have come from just 209 donors, or groups of related donors, giving $500,000 or more

    IF ANYONE THINKS THIS IS HOW ELECTIONS OUGHT TO BE RUN, YOU NEED TO MOVE TO RUSSIA.

    I DON’T CARE WHICH PARTY IT IS HELPING…

    THE FACT THAT *ONE* PERSON IS ABLE TO FUND POLITICAL OPERATIVES WITH $50 MILLION IS A NATIONAL DISGRACE!!!

    VOTE FOR DEMOCRATS SO WE CAN PREVENT THIS KIND OF ELECTION-BUYING FROM EVER HAPPENING AGAIN IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!

  9. Fed Up Says:

    I voted for DA; saw a debate and Ms Keever surrounds herself with the Tea Party and thinks her carpetbagger self is going to take care of the corruption. She was a bully.

  10. Kelley Says:

    This past week, Trump offered to give $5 million to a charity of Obama’s choice if he releases his college and passport records. Obama responded by telling his own joke about him and Trump fighting while growing up in Kenya. http://www.bit.ly/WRFiT5

  11. Tell the truth Dave Says:

    These are almost the same poll #s that Dave tried to sell through Bizpac 3 weeks ago.

    So Dave’s campaign spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in TV since then and didn’t move the poll numbers?

    Nice work guys. Well done.

    Even if Dave wins, he loses with this kind of amateur nonsense. He’s so damaged how can he possibly do the job, or even go out in public? I guess he can still have lunch with Burt the crook or that weird little guy with his name on his hat. Loser.
