POLL: DSCC Minnesota Senate


A new Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research (D) statewide survey of 600 likely voters in Minnesota (conducted 7/26 through 7/31 for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee) finds:

  • 37% would vote to reelect Sen. Norm Coleman if the election for U.S. Senate were held today; 49% would vote for "someone new."
  • 41% rate the job performance of Coleman as either excellent or good; 58% say either fair or poor.

Rich B.:

I'm waiting for the follow up poll:

"Among these former Saturday Night Live cast members, who would you prefer to run against Senator Coleman . . ."

This is a useful poll, because it pits "somebody" against Norm Coleman. We have seen polls where a name-less Democratic candidate beats say, Rudoph Giuliani, but when the name Hillary Clinton replaces the generic candidate,support for the specific Democrat decreases substantially.

Correction: In the above post, I said this poll was useful. I meant to say "useless".

Ok Andrew, I'm going to explain a little something called the "incumbent rule". As a general rule of thumb it is never good for an incumbent to be below 50% electablity.

And by the way, Rich, Coleman can't even poll 50% against Franken, so that means if Coleman can't beat the "former Saturday Night Live writer" than that makes him pretty pathetic in my eyes.
