Now, here's a race everyone was on the edge of their seats for. Rasmussen has so much funds he can waste it on non-races like this.

Has anyone ever seen a study on how much it costs to poll? I can't imagine incremental IVR polling costs very much. They probably have unlimited long distance and a nationwide bank of numbers from a software company broken out by district. I know Ras saves a bunch by only polling statewide races so that they don't have to spend capital on software that break phone numbers into congressional districts.

My God. Alaska's and Idaho's governor's races are closer than Michigan. What the hell is going on? It is a sign that the Democratic base has a lot of work to do.

I guess I have to hand it to the blue dogs in anti-Obama states, because I knew some states would just trust the guy. That is why it is good for Blue dogs to continue running campaigns as though Pelosi, and Obama don't exist. I mean, people in states like Idaho or Nebraska, have different experiences and a different worldview from someone who has lived in VT, Mass. and CT.

I mean, had I grown up in a state like Indiana or Kansas, my views and way of seeing the world would be completely different. Just like Republicans like Inhofe, Vitter and Coburn scare the hell out of most New Englanders, I could understand why those who grew up in Nebraska or Oklahoma would have the same distrust of a San Francisco liberal like Pelosi, or Chuck Schumer.
