No that’s not a bizarro NBA score up above (but don’t think that’s the last time we’ll make such a joke.)
A new Rassmussen Reports poll out today on the Nebraska Governor’s race. Looks like this:
Dave Heineman (R): 61%
Mark Lakers (D): 23%
Recall that back in 2006, after taking out Tom Osborne in the Primary, Heineman ended up defeating David Hahn with 73% of the vote. Those Undecideds tend to come around.
Rasmussen also says that Heineman gets 24% of Democrats, while Lakers only gets 54% of those from his own party. Chalk much of that to the fact that Lakers has come out of political Nowhere Land, and many, if not just about all, Democrats have never heard of the guy. (Still, DH gets 24%. Not bad.)
Heineman also has a 69% approval rating (29% disapprove).
Nonetheless, it’s early kids. Lakers will have some ads and his numbers will go up. Heineman will have a few more and then his will go up. (Then Heineman will saturate the market, the President will pull down the rest of the Dems, and, well…)
Note this first poll.
