Dueling Polls

Last month Joe McLaughlin released an internal poll that showed him trailing Walter Jones just 43-41.

Yesterday Jones released an internal poll showing him leading McLaughlin 54-16.

These dueling polls are a familiar sight. Challengers Joe Cimperman and Chris Peden rolled out polls showing them close to Dennis Kucinich and Ron Paul in the weeks leading up to their primaries while the incumbents (and PPP) showed numbers that had the races much more lopsided.

My highly scientific truth gathering technique in these cases without any independent polling to settle the score? Average 'em! My guess is that Jones leads McLaughlin about 49-29.

Glad we got that settled.
