IS DISTRICT 13 COUNCILWOMAN VICKIE WELCH IN MORE TROUBLE?

Yep I know bold headline but the following is very interesting and very telling. I received this poll on the District 13 race from River City Polling and found it interesting to say the least. For the record I have not verified whether Vickie took trips with those mentioned in this poll but based on history it probably did happen.

Open records will let us know. In the meantime check it out. There were 4 questions asked and all were yes or no questions. Here is the poll:

We are conducting an automated political poll for this May's Democratic Metro Council primary.
It takes less than a minute, and there are only four questions:

First question, are you a registered Democrat likely to vote in the May primary?
To answer yes, please press 1.
To answer no, please press 2;

Again, if you are a registered Democrat likely to vote in the May primary press 1, if not, press 2.

Second question, if the Democrat primary for Metro Council was today for whom would you vote?

There are two candidates: to vote for Vicki Welch, press 3; to vote for Larry Roger Price, press 4.

Again to vote for Vicki Welch, press 3; to vote for Larry Roger Price, press 4.

Third question, would you change your vote if you were given proof that Vicki Welch had voted to give millions of taxpayer dollars to organizations like the League of Cities and GLI and then took luxury trips with them? Again, if you were given proof that Vicki Welch had voted to give millions of taxpayer dollars to organizations like the League of Cities and GLI and then took luxury trips with them, would you change your vote? Please press 3 if you would change your vote; please press 4 if you would not change your vote.

Last question, would you change your vote if you were given proof that Vicki Welch had been using taxpayer money to campaign for Metro Council? Again, if you were given proof that Vicki Welch had been using taxpayer money to campaign for Metro Council, would you change your vote? Please press 5 if you would change your vote; please press 6 if you would not change your vote.


"This concludes our poll, thank you for your time".

The results:

Welch faces significant primary battle given her spending and voting record!

Who would you support tomorrow:
Price 201 (33%) Not out of line with typical non-incumbent
Welch 411 (67%)

Would you change your vote if given proof Welch took trips with GLI/League of Cities:
327 Change Vote
Price 528 (86%)
Welch 84 (14%)

Would you change vote if given proof Welch campaigned on tax payer money?
300 Changed Vote
Price 501 (82%)
Welch 111 (18%)

612 people responding to poll. Democrat voters likely to vote in this May's primary. This weekend from Friday 4/22 to Sunday 4/25.

The interesting thing is the changes when the 3rd and 4th questions are answered. If proven Welch is in serious trouble. Open records will help us prove or disprove this either way.

Your thoughts?

  1. I usually hang up once I discover its a push poll. I'm surprised that the total numbers were the same 612 people.

  2. Is this a REAL poll?

    I had no idea that Welch is viewed that suspiciously by fellow Democrats.

    That "Coffee with the Councilwoman" thing may haunt her ... right out of office.

  3. I hope that nobody is defending what is obviously a push poll.

    Welch will win handily, by the way. No matter her party, she's been fantastic with constituent service and right on many of the issues, to boot.

  4. Also, this is clearly a poll conducted by right wingers. They say "Democrat party" and "Democrat voters".

    No matter whether you dislike their policies or not, their party is called the Democratic Party.
