Ben Nelson is still holding Pete Ricketts at arm’s length in the August poll by Rasmussen Reports.
Nelson holds a 55% to 32% lead over Ricketts, down 2% from last month’s poll, but equal to the average of the last three months.
Ricketts has a 45% to 52% favorable vs. unfavorable rating, with Nelson taking a 74% favorable.
Nelson also still garners 41% of GOP voters.
Question: Who are these 41% of Republicans, and can Pete Ricketts track each of them down before Election Day? And will the rest of the Nebraska GOP help him?
