-Debra Medina actually leads the race with people who think she's not a truther- with 33% to 32% for Kay Bailey Hutchison and 29% for Rick Perry. But with voters who think she is a truther, or that she might be, she gets only 7% to 51% for Perry and 30% for Hutchison. What portion of the electorate do each of those groups comprise? We'll tell you tomorrow.My guess is that approximately 75% know Debra Medina is a 9/11 truther. 25% don't. If those are the ratios, then the total number would be 38.25+7.25=45.5% for Rick... 22.5+8=30.5% for Kay... and 5.25+8.25=13.5% for Medina. Which leaves 10.5% undecided.
-In yet another sign that there may really be no difference between the 'Tea Party' and the Republican Party, 74% of GOP primary voters there say they 'support the goals of the Tea Party movement.' It's basically the whole party sans the moderates...if centrist Republicans split off and did their own thing that might really shake up American politics. More and more though it looks like the 'Tea Party' movement is nothing more than a group of GOP voters who gave themselves a special name.
If only 60% know Medina is a 9/11 truther and 40% don't, then the numbers are...
Rick 30.6+11.6= 42.2%
Kay 18+12.8= 30.8%
Medina 4.2+13.2= 17.4%
That would leave 9.6% undecided.
If only 40% know Medina is a 9/11 truther and 60% don't, then the numbers are...
Rick 20.4+17.4= 37.8%
Kay 12+19.2 = 31.2%
Medina 2.8+19.8= 22.6%
8.4% undecided under that scenario.
There may be a whole other category of peeps who are unsure or "don't know" they aren't telling us about. If that is the case, then these numbers are are moot... but it will still look closer to a big lead still for Rick and small numbers for Medina. For example if 30% understand that Medina is a truther and 10% think she is not... with 60% not knowing either way... then there is no real way to guess what those other 60% believed.
