Zogby Poll: Kinky at 21%

The latest Zogby Poll shows independent Texas Guv candidate Kinky Friedman at 21%. He's still behind Republican Gov. Rick Perry, who had 41%, and Democratic ex-Congressman Chris Bell at 25%, but former Minnesota Guv Jesse Venture says that's real good. The Kinky campaign sent out this missive from Ventura today:


In 1998, my campaign didn't reach 20% in a likely voter poll until 10 days before the election. Ross Perot only received 19% in his presidential race in 1992, but Kinky is polling at 21% a full year before Election Day.

Remember, the Zogby poll really only counted voters that voted in the last Governor’s race. Since that was less than one third of the electorate, 21% is a pretty remarkable place for Kinky to be in this early.

I know about Texas pride; Texans like to be first in everything they do. Well, Minnesota's been the mecca of third-party politics for years. But Texas has a chance to steal the title from us.

Elect Kinky Friedman as your next Governor and the baton will be passed on to Texas. That's my challenge to you.

But Kinky can’t do it alone. He needs your help--your signature, your vote, and your dollars in his boot. Contribute now. Become a part of the revolution.

Governor Jesse Ventura

P.S.: Today on the Imus in the Morning radio show, Imus called the incument Texas governor Rick "I Wear My Wife's Panties" Perry. I'm not sure where that comes from, but it made me laugh. Is there something going on in the Governor's Mansion I don't know about?

If Kinky get's elected, maybe they'll let us move the Governor's mansion to the Driskill!

The polling can be easily explained. Friedman has played with poet laureate Dylan. It is rumored Chris Bell likes Dylan but has not played with him. Rick Perry isn't smart enough to play with himself.
