New Synovate Study Released - Fox News Let Fred In!
AMES, IOWA – The Fred Karger for President campaign released a new study today it commissioned that has the California businessman at 1% (see Synovate poll results below). This is definitely one more reason for Fox News to honor the requirements it set, and let Fred Karger debate the eight other Republicans at Iowa State University Thursday night. Karger polled just 1% behind debate participants Rick Santorum and Jon Huntsman; each scored 2%. This marks the 5th recent poll where Fred is at 1% or better. Last week a Harris Interactive Poll engaged by the campaign showed Karger tied with Huntsman and former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty at 2%.
Karger has definitely met all Fox News requirements (see below) and is heading to Iowa today:
Candidates must satisfy the following by 4 p.m. CDT on Tuesday, Aug. 9:
1. Registered with the Federal Elections Commission as a presidential exploratory committee or presidential campaign.
2. Meet all U.S. Constitutional requirements.
3. Garnered at least an average of one percent in five national polls based on most recent polling leading up to the registration day.
The debate will begin at 8 pm CST on Thursday, Aug. 11 at Stevens Auditorium on the Iowa State University campus.
“We have written to Fox News Senior VP Michael Clemente twice and provided him all the evidence which would absolutely allow me a place on that stage Thursday night,” said Karger. “We have earned it.”
Karger, a businessman from California and retired political consultant, worked for President Reagan on his 1980 and 1984 campaigns, consulted with Reagan’s PAC – Citizens for the Republic and served on President Reagan’s first Inaugural Committee. He has been involved in nine Presidential campaigns and managed dozens of federal, state and local races. He was the first serious Republican to file for President on March 23, 2011 in Washington, DC.
