Raul Ruiz Polling
Burlington, VT Today, Democracy for America (DFA), released
poll numbers showing Republican darling, Mary Bono Mack losing ground in the
congressional district she has held since 1998.
Bono Macks favorability has sunk since August, proving once again that
Democratic challenger Raul Ruiz can unseat her by holding her under 50% in the
most recent polls.
In a poll conducted on September 12 and 13 in Californias 36th Congressional
District, found Bono Macks favorability underwater 44-41%.
Meanwhile, Democratic hopeful Ruiz has gained 6 points in his
favorability since August, which is positive news for the campaign on the year
anniversary of Ruizs announcement for his bid for Congress.
These numbers represent a strong improvement for Raul Ruiz, an ER doctor turned
candidate to defend Medicare against Republicans efforts to end the program and
give seniors vouchers. While Ruiz
remains 3 points behind Bono Mack, Ruizs campaign only has room to gain in the
polls as Ruiz name recognition among democrats and independents continues to
Ruiz, a candidate named to DFAs Dean Dozen in August, is one of the
organizations main focus now until Election Day. Jim Dean, Chair of
Democracy for America said, Ruiz is not only someone who believes in his
values and morals, but lives them day in and day out in the Emergency Room.
These poll numbers indicate that hes gaining popularity among voter in
Californias 36th District and its no wonder why hes the right choice for
the district and a fresh voice needed to end the stalemate in Congress.

Policy Polling on September 12th and 13th in a survey of
1,281 likely voters in Californias 36th District. The margin of
error for this survey was +/- 2.74%.
Earlier this summer, Raul Ruiz was named one of Democracy for America's Dean
Dozen. The Dean Dozen is DFA's highest tier of federal endorsement. It is
