While you were talking about Todd Aiken, you might have missed the fact that our other Senate candidates are doing quite well.
RCP’s Battle for the Senate map has now moved the Wisconsin Senate Race from “toss up” to “leans Republican. Former Governor Tommy Thompson now has an 8.3 point lead in the RCP average of recent polls.
But that’s not the big news. RCP has also moved the Connecticutt Senate race from “leans Democrat” to “toss up”. Linda McMahon has a 3 point lead (49 – 46) in the latest Rasmussen poll of likely voters in Connecticutt.
But the big shocker is that a new Bahdoun/Foster poll of 1733 likely voters in Michigan shows Pete Hoekstra with a +2 advantage over incumbent Democrat Senator Debbie Stabenow. This is a 16 point turn around in the month of August.
Oh, and Scott Brown has a 5 point lead in Massachusetts in the latest PPP (D) poll. Yes, you heard that right–PPP (D)!!! Rehbert leads Tester (47 – 43) (Rasmussen Reports)in Montana. Heller leads by 3.7 in the RCP poll average in Nevada, although there are no polls in August. And Berg has a +5 lead in the poll averages for North Dakota, although again there are no polls since July.
While Florida and Virginia continue to be challenging races, it’s beginning to look more and more like a Republican-controled Senate, regardless of how Missouri turns out.
