Could SugarLand voters be getting wise to Tom Delay?

Support for House Majority Leader Tom DeLay has slipped in his district, and a majority of voters surveyed disapprove of his decision to lead Congress into the Terri Schiavo case, according to a Houston Chronicle poll.

Forty-five per cent of 501 voters questioned last week said they would vote for someone else if a congressional election were at hand, while about 38 per cent said they would re-elect DeLay.

Let's see: three ethics violations censures by the House Ethics Committee, an investigation by Travis County DA Ronnie Earle into DeLay's political fundraising violations, rampant partisanship that resulted in a Texas redistricting fiasco that included calling in Homeland Security to pursue renegade Democratic state Senators, and now the hypocrisy of demonizing Michael Schiavo for trying to fulfill his wife's wishes when DeLay pulled the plug on his own father.

It doesn't take MUCH to alienate Texas voters.
