DeLay losing badly in his own district

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Even the voters of Sugar Land who have supported this wingnut for years are jumping ship. The new numbers that are out suggest that the Bugman might not have to worry about fighting for his House Majority Leader spot ever again because he's going to be clobbered in the election for his current seat.

In polling conducted Tuesday through Thursday, 22 percent of respondents said they would vote for DeLay, 30 percent chose Lampson and 11 percent favored Republican-turned-independent former congressman Steve Stockman

Lampson's campaign manager, Mike Malaise, said the poll suggests that "people in the district want a congressman who will make headlines for the right reasons."

In 2004, DeLay defeated relatively unknown Democrat Richard Morrison with 55 percent of the vote, his lowest victory margin.

In the latest poll, only half of those who supported DeLay in 2004 said they would vote for him again.
Payback is a bitch.
