This confirms it!

Yesterday I posted a piece about the 3rd District congressional race poll from the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel, and voiced my concerns about it's validity. The second part of this poll, the Allen County sheriff's race, was released today. I am now POSITIVE that this is a flawed poll! I would expect to see polls showing a lead for Ken Fries; he's the GOP poster-boy for the "Good 'Ol Boys" here in Allen County. A lead, perhaps. . .but a rout, not on your life! It is absolutely impossible that Tina Taviano is polling only 16%, no matter how conservative this area may be.

She has ran a strong, effective campaign with full backing from the local party and a loyal group of supporters. I've NEVER worked for a political candidate before. I'm a quiet, introverted sort of guy. . .yet *I* walked in THREE parades for this extremely qualified lady! Everyone who has ever heard her speak has been swayed by her passion and knowledge of the office she seeks. She is, by far, the most qualified candidate for the job. Even Indiana Pundit, a local right-leaning blog, stated that "based on effort, Taviano deserves to win this one".

I am very proud of Tina and count her as a personal friend. I hope that enough people have experienced Tina's passion for the job that we can elect her as Allen County Sheriff on November 7th. If we do not, then it is truly a loss for all of Allen County.

I agree that the poll percentage is way too low. I for one, will be voting for her, and I wasn't a participant in the poll =)
