    With the normal participation rate in this self-selected poll, a majority will vote “No” on Mr. Carforio’s self-serving opinion.

    When Leftists with the opposing view begin running their voting bot scripts, the votes will be in the many hundreds or thousands to skew the results of this non-scientific self-selected poll.

    Getting back to the polling question, does any serious person expect support of the opposing party’s platform if the representative of that party lost an election?

    Thought exercise: I and many other SCV voters support the National Reciprocity Act to restore recognition of the Constitutional right to keep and *bear* arms in L.A. County.

    Rep. Knight supports this legislation and voted accordingly. Should I expect Mr. Caforio to do so as well when the national and state Democratic Party organization are opposed to restoration of this right?

    I wrote a Letter to the Editor addressing this absurd notion here:

    As a DEMOCRAT he is automatically wrong.

      Was President Kennedy, a Democrat, wrong about tax cuts and their positive effect on the economy?

        TYPICAL RINO

          You ad hominem instead of a cogent rebuttal speaks for itself.

          Also, I’m a Decline to State independent, not a registered Republican.

          You’re not doing yourself any favors with your error rate.

    This is a silly poll question.

    Whoever is writing these questions has a demonstrable bias. I’m surprised they didn’t use the Carpetbagger’s “man of the people” picture.

    With Steve Knight voting to raise CA taxes and send that money to US red states, Bryan’s got my vote. Knight can’t possibly explain it away, except he’s beholden to Red State Republicans more than he cares about California.

      Of topic, Mark.

      You also beg the question.

    Facts have to be agreed upon !!

      Incorrect. Facts are verifiable independent of agreement.
