New Poll: Arpaio down by three points (OMG! Send Me More Money)

Written by Subject: Politics: Republican Campaigns

Joe Arpaio was elected Sheriff of Maricopa County in 1992 (24 yrs ago) and since with wide margins... each time claiming a close race that demanded more and more money... is this election a legitimate threat that would deny 28 yrs as Sheriff?


***New Poll: Arpaio down by three points,
within the margin of error ***


I'll cut right to the chase because I don't have much time to explain: a recent poll was just released and I'm down by three points.

In fact, it gets worse. According to the poll commissioned by a Republican firm, I am in serious danger of losing my battle for re-election.

I am running out of time to turn this around, Michael. And frankly, without your help today I am not sure we will be able to do it.

That's why I am asking that you stand with me today with ANY AMOUNT you can afford. Every single dollar will go directly to counter the attacks coming from the multiple Democrat backed organizations and their allies in the liberal media.

I've asked my team to create the SECURE and SAFE buttons below. A donation of ANY AMOUNT at this time could make the difference on election day. Please click on one of the buttons below to make an urgent contribution:

I cannot stress enough how important it is that we have the financial resources to reach voters. If you donate today I can turn this around - but I need your support immediately.

I'm afraid that the years-long, constant effort by those on the left to slander my name has caused Republicans and Conservatives to lose trust in me. . .

That's why I am spending every day until the election reaching out to them and showing why the attacks from those on the left are baseless and unfounded, and why I am still the best choice for anyone who believes in upholding the US Constitution, the following rule of law, and securing the border.

Michael, I am running out of time to turn this around. I need you to stand with me right now with a donation of ANY AMOUNT you can afford.

Failed recall petitions, 2007 and 2013

In November 2007, a group calling itself Arizonans for the U.S. Constitution and Recall of Joe Arpaio filed the paperwork to begin an effort to recall Arpaio and County Prosecutor Thomas from office for allegedly disobeying and violating the United States Constitution and abuse of power.[205] Their petition to get a recall question for the two officials onto the next general election ballot failed when the group was unable to collect the more than 200,000 registered voter signatures required.[206] In a survey taken by the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, while the petition was in circulation, nearly three out of four respondents opposed the recall, and 65 percent of the respondents held a positive opinion of Arpaio.[207]

On May 30, 2013, a recall attempt on Arpaio again failed only a week after a federal judge ruled that the sheriff's office had engaged in systematic discrimination against Latinos in violation of their constitutional rights. Members of Respect Arizona and Citizens for a Better Arizona started the recall effort, but were unable to get the required 335,000 valid voter signatures by the 5 p.m. deadline.[208]
