I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

Kulongoski leads

I found it hard to believe that here in the blue state of Oregon on a bad year for Republicans that Ted Kulongoski could be in a virtual tie with wingnut Ron Saxton. Well it looks like I may have been right.

New poll shows Kulongoski pulling ahead in Oregon governor's race
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A new independent poll suggests that Democratic Gov. Ted Kulongoski has pulled ahead in the Oregon governor's race, leading Republican challenger Ron Saxton by a margin of 47 percent to 36 percent.

The Riley Research Associates telephone poll of 445 likely voters found that Kulongoski has made significant gains among independent voters, the fastest-growing sector of the Oregon electorate.

Fifty-three percent of such independent voters said they planned to vote for Kulongoski, up from just 32 percent a month ago. Just 21 percent of independent voters said they were leaning toward Saxton.
Saxton who has a lot of out of state money hit the airwaves early but Kulongoski has fought back.
