The monthly numbers from Rasmussen Reports are in, and Ben Nelson should be sleeping well with a comfortable lead over Pete Ricketts.
Ben Nelson (D) 54%
Pete Ricketts (R) 34%
Ricketts has closed the gap from last month by three points, though we doubt his camp will be turning any cartwheels based on that news.
Nelson also has a “favorable” rating of 67%, while Ricketts has an unfavorable rating of 56%.
In addition, 42% like Nelson wearing an apron; 58% like him better with the apron and the hat (none were “undecided”).
