Dally, Murray & Zito Lead in Judicial Poll

With 515 votes cast so far, many of which seem to be bullet votes, three candidates have a convincing lead in the race for three judicial vacancies. Craig Dally, Sam Murray and Lenny Zito appear to be in the lead.

If online polls had any validity, Ron Paul would be President today. But the more votes cast, the more likely this poll will be accurate. Here's the breakdown so far:

Craig Dally - 116; Samuel Murray - 107; Leonard Zito - 93; Karl Longenbach - 81; Candy Barr Heimbach - 46; Michael Koury - 39; James Narlesky - 17; Barbara Hollenbach - 16.

Disagree? Then vote. The poll is along the left sidebar.

I see that Boscola support is doing Hollenbach alot of good with the readers here.

Barbara Hollenbach has almost 30 yrs of trial experience and was the first woman elected President of the Northampton Cty Bar Ass'n. She's clearly one of, if not the most, qualified candidates in the field. I'm voting for her.

It is funny that in a poll where your'e guys are winning you proudly write up the results. In the County Executive poll where Heckman cleaned everyone's clock you never did the follow-up you promised. It was like it had never happened. I guess Rich was supposed to win that one and it didn't work out that way.

I spent three years in law school with both Barb Hollenbach and Karl Longenbach. They are both excellent attorneys who even had the respect of their peers in those days. They are both class acts and would both make excellent judges.

That's the problem. There are so many good people running it's really difficult to decide. Sam Murray is absolutely wonderful and sop compassionate and hard-working. Zito and Dally are also workers and are just brilliant. Candy Barr Heimbach is a person I do not know, but EVERY report about her acumen has been excellent. Michale Koury graduated at the top of his class in law school and college and has been a fair-minded magistrate. I tried cases agains Jim Narlesky and learned then just how fair-minded he can be.

No matter what we decide, we really can't go wrong. I have never seen a better field. We are trying to decide on the best of the best.

I will try to get more information about the judicial candidates before the primary.

Anon 10:38,

The Heckman was a hypothetical "what if" poll. He ended up not running. I did publish the results but did not dwell on them, because (1) it was hypothetical; and (2) it was very clear to me that they were being gamed.

I placed more restrictions on this poll in the hope that it is more accurate, although I am concerned this one will be gamed, too.

I'm unable to find any websites (yunno, blah-blah-blah-4-judge.com) for these candidates and any help would be grateful, thx.
