A new poll published by We Ask America has Deb Fischer up by 12.4% over Democrat challenger Bob Kerrey.
See the results here:
Poll type: Automated Date: November 1, 2012 – Participants: 1,178 Likely Voters – Margin of Error: ± 2.95%
|Deb Fischer (R)||Bob Kerrey (D)||Undecided|
As in all of our polls, these results have been weighted to normalize and over-/under-sampling in key demographic and geographic areas. In the same poll, we asked likely voters their choice for president; the results were Obama 41%; Romney 54%; Generic 3rd Party 2%; Undecided 3%--so Fischer seems to be mirroring the state’s political mood.
Now you may remember We Ask America from back in May of this year. A week before the GOP Primary, they had…
Fischer – 39%
Bruning – 34%
Stenberg – 18%
The final results were…
Fischer – 41%
Bruning – 35%
Stenberg – 18%
There may be a reason why Bob Kerrey Tweeted this morning that, “The polls no longer matter“.
They may not matter. But that doesn’t mean they’re wrong.
Interesting that OWH story today that Democrat NE-02 Congressional challenger John Ewing is getting little help from the Democratic Party.
We could have sworn the OWH’s own poll showed Ewing practically neck and neck with Congressman Lee Terry.
Could that poll have been dramatically wrong? (You know, like the one 2 years ago.)
Guess we’ll find out in a few days.
Hey, while we have been pretty much radio-silent on the Legislative races, among others, you should feel free to shout out for your favorite candidates on Tuesday.
Vote early and often!
