silly cigarette tax was blanco coffin nail

this morning moon griffon had pollster bernie pinsonet on his program. mr pinsonet shared some polling data his firm has recently taken. we had hoped to have a few sound clips of the interview but the live stream we usually listen to was having technical problems in that the stream was working intermittently. so if we tried to record there would be long silent places. anyway this is what we managed to write about:

pinsonet: "silly cigarette tax" started blanco's downfall. pollster bernie pinsonet said that gov blancos failed cigarette tax proposal alienated a lot of white voters. since katrina gov blanco's job performance rating has been in a "free fall" according to pinsonets data gov blanco has a 71% negative rating. 27% positive; thats among white voters.
