Paul King for 50TH
PRESS RELEASE 17 April, 2006
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
50th district special election produced some startling results!
The RICH vs. the POOR…
How they voted!
The more affluent communities along the coast, La Jolla, Del
Mar, Del Mar Heights, Encinitas and Solana Beach voted largely
for Democrat Francine Busby. In fact if the election had depended
on these communities Busby would have won the election outright.
At polling places in those communities, an average of 54.8
percent cast ballots for Busby.
Saving the day for the republicans were the poorer inland
communities of Escondido and San Marcos where polling places
turned out for republicans, of which there where 14 candidates,
giving them an average of over 60% of the total votes.
This defies conventional wisdom that say’s the democrats are
the party of the downtrodden and the poor who need big government
to help them. Obviously even the poor don’t buy that line
While an interpretation of these facts are open to speculation.
My belief is that it is mostly the wealthy that benefit from
the huge 2.8 trillion dollars in federal government spending.
And those folks vote their pocketbooks.
BTW. There was no breakdown available on how libertarian voters
voted. Oh Well!
