An hour before Lois Frankel and Adam Hasner debate at The Palm Beach Post a new poll released by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee shows Frankel with a 49 percent to 39 percent lead over Adam Hasner. The poll sampled 450 likely voters over the phone by an automated survey.

The same poll showed President Obama defeating Mitt Romney in District 22 by a 53 percent to 43 percent margin.

District 22 gives a statistical advantage to both Frankel and Obama, with Democrats having a 40 percent to 31 percent edge in registered voters over Republicans. The remaining voters in the district are not affiliated with the party.

According to the DCCC’s poll, Frankel is known known by 63 percent of District 22 and has an overall favorability rating of 37 percent, while Hasner is known by 43 percent of the district and has a 30 percent favorabilty rating.

    HAHA! An hour before her debate she releases this self serving poll. I think Lois should keep doing exactly what she has done for the last year. Stay in hiding, she obviously has nothing to worry about. I can’t wait to see that stupid grin on her face for the next hour. Hopefully she has more answers than she did at the Forum Club.

    If the democratic committee shows Lois with a 10 point lead, what does the republican committee pole show? Just a little skewed here doncha think?

  3. Threats to Romney by Obama supporters Says:

    “Democrat poll” says it all.

    Good that they were ‘likely voters’


    We didn’t get that information!

    And here are more Democrat supporters on Twitter threatening to assassinate Romney:

    that is EXACTLY what Obama has wrought, division and threats of attacks.

    Be frightened America, be frightened.

    These are Obama supporters who are threatening assassination of anyone who argues with Obama

    and Obama will remain SILENT on this issue. He does NOT quell the divide, he encourages it.

  4. Facts not provided and very much needed Says:

    Before the Palm Beach Post reports any poll from a democrat or republican camp; they should vet the poll and give readers the following information:

    were those polled:

    registered or likely voters?
    how many democrats were polled?
    how many republicans were polled?
    how many independents were polled?
    what was the gender breakdown?

    It is a disservice to all readers not to give this information.

    Post reporters, you are remiss in not getting this information out to those who peruse your articles.

    How can anyone vote for a $HILL like Adam Hasner?

    He just lied about Medicare.

    The Ryan Plan which is supported by ALL Republicans ENDED Medicare.

    The pathetic, disgusting VOUCHER program that Ha$ner wants would end up costing each and every one of our amazing senior citizens — The Greatest Generation — would end up costing each and every Senior more than $600 DOLLARS!

    Oh, ok, now Adam Ha$ner says that adding 30 million people to the health insurance market won’t bring down costs!!! LOLOL!!!

    I guess he hates the principle of free market competition!

    I don’t think the Sheldon Adel$on and Kock Bros $$$$$ is very well spent! They’re certainly not getting their money’s worth hahaha!

    Frankel wins in a walk.

    @Go Lois, so you say Lois is a supporter of a free market. Ha! HA! Ha! The only thing Lois supports is her “Pay to Play” business policies.

    I was for transportation before I was AGAINST it!


    Somebody give this guy the hook. His 15 minutes are DONE!

    Go Lois!

    Obama crushed R-MONEY last night and Lois just sealed the deal for her seat in Congress.

    GOTV Dems! Let’s volunteer if you can, make some phone calls, and VOTE EARLY!

    You can still request a VOTE BY MAIL ballot up until October 31st. So, Dems, go tell your friends, Vote By Mail is the way to go. Fill out the 10 page ballot in the comfort of your own home rather than with 15 people behind you tapping their toes.

    Here is the link for more info about Vote By Mail:

    Fire Up, Ready To Go!

    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.
