Good point. Newt's presentation on $2.50 gas is subject of a 30-minute speech he's giving around the country (and planning to air on Ohio TV in advance of next week's primary) which is presented in various iterations at

Sez - Reference to "North County" was to identify portion of SB that's in the 15th Senate district, and differentiate from south coast, which is part of Tony Strickland's 19th SD. Sorry for any confusion. .

On GOP’s Thelma and Louise

On polling: The only polling I’m aware of on the issue was done last year by Fairbank Maslin, Maullin & Associates, a reputable firm paid by PXP to do a survey. A summary sheet of their findings showed support for the T-Ridge project after poll respondents were “educated” about it, as the political professionals say. The findings are discussed at the company’s web site on the project which is here.

Phil Trounstine, my partner in Calbuzz, is a former pollster who ran the survey center at San Jose State University for several years, and we’ve published several discussions about research methodology, including this piece - - which also ran in the L.A. Times.

A key issue is that PXP has refused to make public the actual data underpinning their survey – the complete list of questions, question order and cross-tabulations – citing proprietary concerns, which I wrote about last fall for the Indie here

After PXP e-blasted a summary of its poll around the state, Nava picked a fight with the company and sent out a series of press releases raising questions about its methodology and demanding they release all their data, which they have not done. We covered that at Calbuzz here and here
