WASHINGTON (CNN) – Arlen Specter's Republican polling firm, Public Opinion Strategies, is resigning from the Pennsylvania senator's campaign following his party switch.
"Senator Specter has been a record-setting U.S. Senator, and we have been part of his campaign team in 1992, 1998, and 2004, but because of his surprising decision to switch parties today, we will no longer be involved," said Specter pollster Glen Bolger in a release Tuesday. "As Republicans, we are disappointed by Senator Specter's decision."
Public Opinion Strategies does polling for 15 GOP senators and has worked for Joe Lieberman, who left the Democratic Party to become an independent in 2006.
Don't need them, we Democrats take care of our own. Republicans need to learn to do the same.
Agreed...quiters never win...like people who quit their party and obligations to those who trusted them.
Specter doesn't have a chance in re-election. He won't win the democrats nomination to run...and if by some odd chance he does, he won't win the election.
More republican quiters, what a bunch of "dead headers" to quote a former government official....
Resign before being fired. Very Nixonian.
Oh well, JUST another polling firm that polls ONLY republicans.
(Stocks are going up – he he he he he) == ONE LESS GOP
Obama is moving higher, This great nation is finally moving towards
the right path
Isn't using a partisan polling firm a bad idea in the first place? That would be like getting all your news from Fox.
No big loss to Mr. Specter, that had him behind in the polls, so i guess they were not supporting the client, unless he toed the Republican line
HE SHOULD RESIGN AND GET VOTED IN AS A DEMOCRAT
Welcome Arlene Spector a true bi-partisian!
Apparently there is no room left in the Republican party for moderates anymore. Specter was left with no choice as many moderate repubs have become independent voters, leaving a base of far right conservatives that were gonna vote him out in the primary. The republicans need to veer to the middle, not to the right as they have been doing, or they risk losing even more moderates and putting more people like Michelle Bachman and her inflammatory rhetoric into office.
Oh boy! Rush Limbaugh is going to have your head on a stick.
Sounds like this "republican" polling firm clearly sees the writing on the wall.....they can't skew the results toward the "right" if the candidate lives in the "left"......hehehe
I will bet Rush Limpballs blood pressure is 200/100 this morning...
Well of course. They're GOP. Its not like they can behave like adults, it would be un-GOP-like.
Thats quite alright for you to quit.. I'm sure some Democrat polling company will do him a more honest job.. Welcome to the right party for you, who works for his people.
i support U senator Specter. Now where can i donate for ur re-election.
POS? Your acronym is POS!? LOL! Fitting. An apt description of the party for whom you poll.
To paraphrase POS: "As Americans, we are disappointed by Republicans' decisions."
Are they serious. He can make up his own mind. Republicans act like their a CULT......Hmmm
How is this news?
They are a 'Republican Polling Team'! They were about to be fired anyways!
HAHA! The math just got too hard for them!
Oh well, just like a REP.
As others have said, I'm sure the Democrats will find him a firm to work with...
Enjoy your vacation from 'polling' for Senator Arlen Spector..., because it is apparent that you didn't do a very good job. Mike in Montana
Another Judas in the crowd. He said he looked at his constituants. In reality he was approached and coached by the Democrats. Another back scratchin good ole boy routine.
