Tom Delay Butchered in Polls
Topics: Legislative Action Items
SOURCE - House Majority Leader Tom DeLay's footing among his constituents has slipped drastically during the past year, and a majority of his district disapproves of how he handled the Terri Schiavo case, according to a Houston Chronicle poll.
Nearly 40 percent of the 501 voters questioned Wednesday through Friday said their opinion of the powerful Republican from Sugar Land is less favorable than last year, compared with 11 percent who said their view of him has improved.
On the Schiavo issue, DeLay has consistently said that his constituents backed his decision to lead Congress into the dispute over whether to continue nourishment to the severely brain-damaged Florida woman.
But nearly 69 percent of people in the poll, including substantial majorities of Democrats and Republicans, said they opposed the government's intervention in the long-standing family battle.
The United States was divided on the Terri Schavio issue, and that is probably the reason why Delay scored low in this poll. He was only the face of the of Terri Schavio Pro-Life campaign.
