The Mark of the Udall Curse now damaging all other Udall candidacies THROUGHOUT SPACE AND TIME.
Work with me, here.
…OK, maybe that’s me being silly. But Sen. Tom Udall (D-NM) 8%‘s (D, NM) most recent Albuquerque Journal poll is the worst we’ve seen yet for him. Admittedly, 50-43 over Allen Weh is still a very good place for Udall to be, a week out – but keep an eye on this one, maybe. Sen. Mark Udall (D-CO)‘s campaign taints all Democratic things that it touches with its mediocrity: it’s entirely possible that the very name itself might be serving as a warning to New Mexico voters.
…And, just in, here’s another suggestion that this may, in fact, be true:
[Tom] Udall is only up four points over Republican Allen Weh, according to a new Vox Populi poll shared first with The Daily Caller. The poll has Udall at 47 and Weh at 43.
“Our survey shows that the New Mexico Senate race has tightened down to a four point lead heading into Election Day,” said Vox Populi pollster Brent Seaborn. “The deteriorating national political environment for Democrats and President Obama has put Senate races like New Mexico at risk for Democrats.”
Come, I will conceal nothing from you: Vox Populi does not have the same name for accuracy as a lot of these other pollsters. But this is really about Sen. Mark Udall (D-CO), isn’t it? Or, as I have just decided to refer to him: The Mark of the Udall Curse.
