Newish poll out from Public Policy Polling, on behalf of the Chuck Hassebrook for Governor campaign.
Looks like this:
Mark Elworth (sic) (uh…who?)…… 8%
Looks like Ricketts is in trouble, yeah?
Yeah, maybe not so much.
Look, we like polls as much as the next bloggers. But anymore, unless the poll is coming from somewhat of an independent source, we say, “Feh!”
If they’re put out from a campaign — Republican or Democrat or whatever Chip Maxwell is — we really don’t have much reason to put much down on it.
Oh, we can make some generalizations. In this case, “Pete’s ahead”, is a pretty safe one.
But by how much?
Well, we’d say somewhere between what Hassebrook is willing to say and what Ricketts is willing to put out.
Other than that, just consider this is a cutthroat business, and no one is ever going to put out info that is bad for them.
Sort of interesting story in Roll Call that the NRCC has NOT reserved any air time for Lee Terry in November.
Then again, the DCCC hasn’t done that either for Brad Ashford.
And somewhere Maxwell just declared, “Victory!”
In case you missed it, an absolute MUST read about the world’s most uncomfortable dinner seating with Barack and Michelle and Bill and Hillary.
The key quotes from the story (all of which will be denied within the week),
“I hate that man Obama more than any man I’ve ever met, more than any man who ever lived.”
“That’s why I never invite that guy over.”
And oh how the Druids in Alliance danced…
