Our new constitution states the following about Senate appointments:

Quote from: Section II part h
...the Governor shall appoint a replacement, who shall only take office upon receiving a majority vote in favor of his or her candidature by the Legislative Assembly...

With the appointment of Maxwell, the assembly must now vote on his candidacy. Let's get this done quickly.

Nice to see Bush trailing by less than 10.

If you consider that the 1970s start in 1971 and end in 1980, and not start in 1974 and end in 1982, the GDP growth of the USA in the 1970s was not low. It was higher than it was in the 2000s and almost as high as it was in the 1980s.

Kids Shouldn't Die from Preventable Diseases Because of Stupid Yuppies and Religious Nuts Act of 2015

Henceforth, any and all funding transferred from the federal government to regional government for the express purpose of providing access to vaccination shall be transferred only on the condition that the region receiving the funds in question amend any and all laws governing vaccination exemptions for public school attendance providing for 'personal' or 'religious' reasons for exemption. The only suitable exemption (i.e. the only exemption allowed that will qualify regions for federal funds) shall be those allowed for medical purposes only.
The amendments to regional laws should make clear that the only exceptions provided for should be those on medical grounds. Where a doctor has certified that a specific mandatory vaccination would lead to serious negative physical and medical outcomes.

What does one make of moderates favoring Trump over Bush? Is it just due to name recognition of Trump vis a vis the others, other than Bush, as to whom it suggests a personal disaffection with him at the moment, and thus a desire to seek out alternatives?

I do think Trump does better with "low information voters" who don't know that many of the other candidates and are stuck with the familiar names.  In the case of ideology though, he seems to do about equally well across the ideological spectrum within the GOP.  But Walker does better with "conservatives" than "moderates", hence this result.

This is something of a tangent, but I don't suppose you've read Ross Douthat's blog post on trying to explain the appeal of Trump?:
