Inglis Brags About ACU Rating But….

Congressman Bob Inglis, circa 2008

Have you looked at it the ACU ratings historically.  Bob is raving about how conservative Bob 3.0 is, but Bob 3.0 has only been in existence since 2009.

Since Inglis returned to Congress in 2005, Bob 2.0, he has not been as conservative on the issues.  I’m happy to see you made the right votes to satisfy the National Right To Life Organization, but they are a single issue organization.  There are multiple issues concerning the conservative community.

What about the Real ID Bob?  What about mandating the use of CFL Bulbs in houses?  Extending FISA?

The people in the fourth are looking for a leader Congressman.  We’ve heard you preach your 5 immigration points?  Where’s the bill?  You publicized that you were going to write an alternative health care bill Congressman.  Where’s the bill?

According to the ACU, Inglis’ 2008 ACU rating was an 84.  Interestingly enough, the ACU altered the formula in 2009 to include Inglis’ first 6 years in office, giving him a 93 lifetime rating.

Here’s the historical ACU ratings, with comparisons to the other Republican’s in SC during Bob 2.0.  You can do your own research at the ACU.

2009 – 92 (Brown 96, Wilson 96, Barrett 96)
2008 – 84 (Brown 83, Wilson 92, Barrett 96)
2007 – 88 (Brown 96, Wilson 100, Barrett 100)
2006 – 84 (Brown 84, Wilson 91, Barrett 96)
2005 – 80 (Brown 96, Wilson 100, Barret 100)

1998- Not Available Online
1997 – Not Available Online
1996 – 100
1995 – 92

April Polling Results – Fourth Congressional

SC 4th Congressional Poll Results

SC 4th Congressional Poll Results - April 2010

The results are in from our poll on the 4th Congressional District through the end of April.  As you can see the front runners in our poll has become even more clear compared to our previous poll, which had a three way tie for 2nd.

Some polling data that has been floated our way from the campaigns appears to match up with what our readers are saying (of course that is every source besides the Jeffrey campaign who is the anomaly).

What I find most interesting in this poll though is the lack of support for Jeffrey.  Her team has been flooding our website with comments, but as the case in campaigns back, just because your the loudest doesn’t mean you have all the support.

We also know that Congressman Inglis’ crew doesn’t really care for The Conservativist.  I supposedly write scurrilous things about him here, which may be deflating his support, but that does not explain the the trending from our sources.

With that said, here is a quick update on the campaigns and a few opinions, in alphabetical order.

Trey Gowdy

We have started seeing Gowdy’s television ads in the evenings and he appears to have the lead in signage placements (if you consider that a determining factor).  The tit-for-tat between Inglis & Gowdy appears to be heating up more so and with several key debates left (forums, we don’t have real debates), I only expect this to intensify.

Bob Inglis

If our polls are any indication, Inglis $43K outdoor advertising campaign is flopping.  Inglis claims he has always knocked on doors, which he has, but never to the extent he has this election cycle.  Inglis was in Boiling Springs this past Saturday.  Unfortunately, I was unable to see what kind of turn out he had at the Clock to go door knocking during the afternoon hours (Wife had places she wanted to go, couldn’t hang around an extra 15 minutes after lunch).

Christina Jeffrey

She may be the biggest whiner in the contest.  Constantly playing the victim card every time we turn around, it is getting a little old.  I guess that is common sense politics for the “Common Sense Grandma.”

The most recent is an incident the night before the Tea Parties where she claims she was prevented from attending a ticketed event and “a fix was in” comment by the organizing individual, Roan Garcia-Quintana.

We’ve heard both sides of the story and honestly, it appears the two parties need to get their panties out of a wad.  You can read about it on SCHotline, here and here, but I suggest you remember the 2008 Doug Wavel incident before continuing to read these stories.

Jim Lee

Jim Lee’s candidacy is a tough one to figure out.  Pure grassroots, little money and a big name supporter.  Col. David Hunt from FOX News came to the upstate to campaign for Lee.  Sources say it was pretty successful.

Concerning Jeffrey’s latest claims that Lee was in attendance at the alleged event above, Lee told us that was not possible.  He was hosting a dinner with Col. David Hunt that night for the duration of the event.

David Thomas

David Thomas’ campaign is out there. I have not had the opportunity to speak with him much, but he was helpful in getting me some information about an issue in Fountain Inn recently.  What most disturbs me with Thomas is his position to mandate that all new houses be equipped with a sprinkler system.  According to the Post & Courier, Thomas stated that there would be potential insurance increases on the people in the state if this mandate is not passed.

At first glance, I’m very skeptical of a sprinkler mandate, but I will be curious to see how the other campaigns take his position and run with it as an infringement on our personal liberties.
