If I was going to provide a poll... I would exclude anyone that would give ma an honest answer that did not agree with the outcome I want... just like CNN MSNBC FOX SIENA and everyone else... they are all in it for their own benefit!

Last year, election records reviewed by the Associated Press found that Democratic Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver collected $41,571 in dividends and interest in just six months from more than $2 million his campaign has invested in 100 companies through mutual funds; Republican Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos had more than $700,000 in investments in bonds as part of $2 million investmen

The thing that caught my eye was that George Soros has progeny. Heaven help us. I thought once George left this world we would be fairly safe again, but now I see that hope is gone. It is clear now why Amedore lost. Soros is a devil!!
