CA-42: New Poll Says Gary Miller’s in Trouble

Ed ChauToday, we have some very interesting news from the Ed Chau campaign. We have some exciting poll numbers coming out of the 42nd Congressional district, and I just had to share these with you. Here, take a look.

Ed Chau for Congress Releases Poll Results

Conclusion: Ed Chau Can Win In CA – 42

Rowland Heights, California – A recent poll of 400 voters in the 42nd Congressional District of California conducted by Celinda Lake of the Lake Research Firm for the Ed Chau for Congress campaign showed that Ed Chau can defeat incumbent Republican Congressman Gary Miller.

The poll showed that Gary Miller’s re-election number was at 28%, one of the lowest re-elect rates in the nation among congressional incumbent Republicans. When voters were asked if they would vote to re-elect Gary Miller, only 28% of the voters polled said they would vote to re-elect Gary Miller.

When voters were given both positive and negative information on both candidates, Ed Chau leads Gary Miller by 44% to 38% with 18% of the voters undecided.

Honestly, these numbers aren’t great for Gary Miller. When only 28% of voters approve of his job, he’s in trouble. When a full 59% say Miller’s corruption makes them less likely to vote for him, he’s in trouble. When Ed Chau actually outpolls Miller, we’re in a good position to actually make a real challenge in the 42nd District.

So if you’re in this district, take a good look at Ed Chau. And better yet, get involved. We may actually win here. :-)

    The question is where was this poll done? Please, I live in the 42nd District and I know that Ed Chau can not win against incumbent Republican Congressman Gary Miller. As a Democrat I might not like the person but I will vote the party line. Sorry Ed, you have no chance to win.

    98% of Rancho Santa Margarita voted GOP in 04 and 06, over 80% of Mission Viejo the same.

    What??? Did you look at the primary results? Who did you poll? What questions where asked and how were they written? This is a Rep. district and looking at the primary results I do not know how this is possible. Let’s not go crazy people.

    Usually, the responses given to a pollster when voters were given both positive and negative information on both candidates are not considered reliable and are more favorable to the challenger. Ed should give poll results before any candidate info was read.
