Luke Messer’s answers to more than an hour of tough questions on national issues,” said Grassroots Conservatives leader Robert Hall.  “We liked that he sponsored a bill to get rid of a loophole that illegal immigrants use to receive tax credits. And he voted against the $1 trillion Omnibus spending bill in May 2017 that failed to cut domestic spending as proposed by the Trump administration. I feel he is a solid conservative and has the best chance to replace Joe Donnelly as U.S. Senator.”The straw poll was conducted using a point system in which each YES vote was 1 point and each NO vote was -1 point.Also in December, Messer led his primary opponents in an IndyPolitics poll on the Indiana U.S. Senate race.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare Luke Messer won a recent U.S. Senate straw poll conducted by the Grassroots Conservatives in Bloomington, Indiana.Messer led all six primary candidates by an eight-point advantage in the Dec. 28th poll. Below are the results of the straw poll released by the Grassroots Conservatives this week:last_img read more

Figures on English speakers were off

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionThe Feb. 21 letter from John Blanchard, “Immigrants should adopt U.S. culture,” contained some surprising assertions. Mr. Blanchard stated that “44.6 percent of Californians age 5 and older don’t speak English at home” and provided similar data for a number of other states. I therefore decided to check the original source data.The data I used is from “Language Use in the United States: 2011”, published August 2013 by the U.S. Census Bureau. What I found was that Mr. Blanchard’s assertions were far from correct.This Census Bureau document shows that 43.8 percent of Californians spoke a language other than English at home; but this means they speak English plus at least one other language. It doesn’t mean they don’t speak English. The same document shows that only 8.4 percent of Californians don’t speak English at all. That’s quite a difference from 44.6 percent.For the other states listed in Mr. Blanchard’s letter, I found the following data for non-English language speakers:  8.9 percent instead of 35.6 percent for Texas; 4.6 percent instead of 34.5 percent for New Mexico; 6.4 percent instead of 31.7 percent for New Jersey, and 6.9 percent instead of 31 percent for New York. The national average is 7.0 percent instead of the 21.6 percent claimed by Mr. Blanchard.Finally, I want to add that not speaking English shouldn’t be considered an assault on our culture. Many of our parents, grandparents or great grandparents may not have spoken English when they first arrived in the United States, and perhaps for many years after. In spite of that, we have thrived on the ideas and energy that has infused our society by people from many countries and cultures.Victor RobertsBurnt HillsMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?last_img read more
