Guam - With a week left until the Decision 2012 General Election, political analyst Ron McNinch spoke before the Rotary Club this afternoon. And while he sees the legislative race as being stable at the moment, he did speak about how his mid-October poll showing a 70/30 split with most against Prop 'A'.  He says this includes those who will leave their ballot blank resulting in a default no-vote along with no coordinated or articulated effort by the proponents of the initiative.

"A lot of the bingo players here are these are these very socially tight-knit people who are very loyal to village game and so they might be afraid that this new for-profit bingo is going to maybe interfere with their ability to play their village game and so for that reason they'll vote against it," he explained. 

McNinch meanwhile discussed the dynamics in the legislative race, noting how being an incumbent is a powerful tool in the race with strong Democrats in the running with a 4.7 legislative average term compared to the republican incumbents only averaging a 1.2 average term.
