We Ask America has a new poll out showing Deb Fischer up by FIVE points over Jon Bruning.
Last week’s WAA poll showed the following:
- WAA polls 1,100 people.
- This is an automated phone poll, and there are organizations that won’t even publish a non-live person conducted poll.
- Margin of error is +/- 2.95%
That is a 17 point jump by Fischer, and an 8 point dive by Bruning. Is Don Stenberg out of this race? These numbers seem to say so, but there is a still a belief that his base WILL show up at the polls and will absolutely affect this race.
Be sure to check back.
Don Walton of the LJS Tweeting the following:
Wenzel Strategies poll of 560 likely Republican voters yesterday: Bruning, 37.7 percent; Fischer, 35.2 percent; Stenberg, 15.7 percent.
No info on who commissioned it, etc.
And a complete FWIW, but a major local Democrat consultant is telling his peeps that Fischer will win. You can read that and argue any which way you want.
We know nothing about the dynamics of this race (we have not researched, and don’t have the time) but, here is something to think about in a recent We Ask America poll.
Back in March, We Ask America polled on the Kinzinger vs Manzullo U.S. House race in Illinois. A week out from Election Day they found Manzullo up by one point, 43-42%.
A week later, after the actual vote, the final results looked like this:
Well, they got the Manzullo part correct anyway…
Lesson: The Nebraska race is tight, but it may be too difficult to say who is in the lead right now.
