    Just Googled Carol Miller.  Que hermosa de alma. 

  2. Qui Tam says:

    Yes Carol Miller, you were a breath of fresh air. And you had supporters in places that you could never imagine! :) Please do consider another run for Office.

  3. Dr. J says:

    Thank you for the answer Ms. Miller.  I guess if I used a name like “Bill Jones” it would all be OK?  BTW, I voted for you when you ran for Congress, if you are the one from my neighborhood in Ojo Sarco.  Hope you run again, you were a breath of fresh air up in this area.

    Carol Miller, care to name those third party and independent candidates?  I would be interested to look them up.  I think Heinrich will win.  I can’t think of anything more stupid than to regress back to that unethical Bush crony, Wilson.

  5. Carol Miller says:

    I usually don’t respond to people who use faux names online but the answer to “DrJ” is yes. There is a sitting Senator who won as a write-in and two Independents. 2012 is an extra-ordinary year and I think anything can happen.

  6. That One says:

    If campaigns were publicly funded as opposed to being funded by corporate and other special interests, anyone could run for public office and win.  Not only would voters be able to elect those who best represent their interests, the need for political parties would disappear.  Political parties are run by political masters and their groupies whose primary mission it is to produce homogenized candidates that serve to ensure major funding sources remain generous in their support.  By definition this means their job is protect the status quo for the privileged few among us.  And yet if all candidates were liberated from the corrupting influence of big money they’d be free to focus on addressing the legitimate needs of society at large; kind of what our constitution implies they should be doing anyways, but yet contrary to what the moronic majority on the U.S. Supreme Court seems to believe these days.  

  7. Dr. J says:

    Ms. Miller, do you seriously think anyone but the Dem or Repub nominees will win the NM Senate race?

  8. Carol Miller says:

    Independents and members of the new parties in the state are unlikely to vote for either Wilson or Heinrich. Many Independents, like myself, are disgusted with both the corporate parties. In July watch for the real action to begin as the NM Occupy the Election movement kicks in here. Other states have different deadlines and as the great philosopher Yogi Berra said, “it ain’t over, till its over.”

  9. Dr. J says:

    Of course a left wing polling firm is unreliable, just as the right wing polling firms are, what else is new?  I have been contacted before by this firm, and have refused to participate, since the way the ask the questions and frame the questions is very suspect, and of course their “selection” of who they poll is also biased, as shown above.  Why do this?  It is just as easy to do an unbiased, fair, and objective poll, maybe easier.  I suspect the reason is who pays their bills.

    That a “non independent” polling organization would want to create a certain impression early and strive to be accurate late in a race makes perfect sense.  Especially since most potential voters are still asleep, if and when they wake up there will be these vague “Heinrich leads big over Wilson”  stories around.  PPP, like any polling firm in their position, will be very good at explaining the results and in New Mexico (swingish state) there are plenty of explanations to work with.
