Now, here’s where the rose-colored glasses come in. When asked about the numbers, California GOP chair Ron Nehring had this to say:
California Republican Party Chairman Ron Nehring said the party has made slight gains since the start of the year, going from 30.75 percent of registered voters in January to 30.8 percent in April.
Nehring said more voters are identifying themselves as Republicans in the state and the rest of the nation.
“We’re climbing while the Democrats are falling,” he said. (SJ Merc)
First of all, 30.75 to 30.8 isn’t even a rounding error. It’s the same number rounded to the next place. Furthemore, even if he was going to argue from the January position, the numbers are exactly the same for the two parties. So instead of trying to help Nehring out with the numbers, I have a better idea. I’ve come up with a few possible other big whoppers to tell when you are desperate. And, remember, no need to mess with reality with this.
Congratulations to the NCAA champion Cal basketball team!
President McCain is very fond of California Republicans, he said he’ll get the presidential phonograph spinning a tune just for us!
