Fishing Poll

The MSR Group is continuing their nightly tracking of the Gov’s and Senate races.
Their poll numbers are an average of the last three nights’ poll numbers.
To get a full view, one must take the three nights as a whole.
So for 3 nights, Sunday – Tuesday, the averages look like this:

Osborne: 44%
Heineman: 41%
Nabity: 6%
Undecided: 9%

Their numbers last night, of 167 people, had exactly the same number of people siding with Osborne as with Heineman. (And how will the news of Osborne’s negative campaigning affect things?) Looks like this race is all on the backs of those 9%.

The Senate race has stayed pretty much the same:

Ricketts: 45%
Stenberg: 29%
Kramer: 11%
Undecided: 16%

It should be interesting to see how David Kramer conducts himself in this final week while people are finally paying attention. Figuring that he has no shot in this race, how will he position himself for the future? Omaha Mayor’s race? Congress if Lee Terry ever decided to bow out? Sit back and wait for a future (long ways away) Gov or Senate run?

MSR will have their tracking updated tomorrow, and we will publish it here on Leavenworth Street.
