What is Going On with the California Senate Poll?


by Sharon Rondeau

Atty. Orly Taitz has filed multiple challenges to Obama's eligibility in many states at various levels

(Apr. 10, 2012) — Early this morning, Atty. Orly Taitz sent out an email stating that she was locked out of the control panel of her website and therefore unable to post new articles and comments.  However, she circulated a link to the Orange County Register which showed that a recent poll showed her with 79% of the vote over incumbent Dianne Feinstein.

At approximately 1:45 p.m. EDT, Taitz contacted The Post & Email about the lockout and the poll.  She said, “The Orange County Register is the second-largest newspaper in California, the most populated state in the nation.  A lot of newspapers reprint articles from the Orange County Register.  This is a very important poll because it’s being copied by other newspapers around the world.”  Taitz was urging supporters to log in to the newspaper’s polling area to register their vote for her.

Taitz later reported on her website that the lockout has been resolved.

At 3:52 p.m. EDT, Taitz sent another email stating, “After I reached 80% of the general vote, Orange County Register deleted all of the results and now is suddenly showing that nobody voted. Please, vote again http://www.ocregister.com/articles/poll-318237-voting-government.html‏”.  The Orange County Register link opens here.

Another posting on Taitz’s website was entitled, “OC Register Poll for US Senate was Moved to Previous Polls”.  An email from Taitz to the Orange County Register editor, Martin Wisckol, asked him:

I reached 79-80% if the vote in OC Register poll, at which time all of the results of the poll were deleted. What is going on?

Wisckol replied:

The poll is neither deleted nor inactive. Click on “See previous polls.” There’s simply a new poll up. As you can see from the previous polls, I launch a new poll every day or two. Santorum dropping out certainly merited a new poll. You can tell your peeps to keep voting for you if you want, but they’ll have to click on “See previous polls.”
Obviously, I’m not going to stop running new polls.

Taitz is a dentist and an attorney.  Her campaign website is here. Her candidate statement begins:

I am not a career politician. I am a businesswoman, a licensed attorney and a licensed doctor of Dental Surgery, a wife and a mother. For 25 years my husband and I have raised our 3 sons in California. I am running, because I want young people of the Golden state to have the opportunities that we had in Reagan Golden era.

The mainstream media does not appear to be reporting on the polling results to date.  At 6:27 p.m. EDT, a reader reported “I was able to see the results under “previous polls” but it is no longer possible to vote.”
