And your finalists for this week...

The finalists for this week are listed below. We're going to have a short vote this week with voting ending Wednesday night and then we'll put up another thread for question suggestions for the winners. The choices are:

-Connecticut. We still haven't done a thorough poll looking at all the match up possibilities for Senate there.

-Delaware. This is one of the few states that has both a Senate and Gubernatorial race next year- neither of them seems likely to be real competitive but can't hurt to take a look and I know the world is dying to see those Tom Carper/Christine O'Donnell numbers.

-Mississippi. Open Gubernatorial race in 2011 and then a Senate race in 2012...another one where it's hard to imagine either of those races being terribly competitive but no harm in taking a first look. Also interested to see how supportive the state is of Barbour for President.

-Missouri. It's been almost three months since we polled there now and the Senate field is starting to take shape a little more now so it might be worthy of being the first race we test a second time. And of course there's a competitive Gubernatorial race and one of the few Obama pick up opportunities on the table as well.

-Vermont. Republican Auditor Tom Salmon really seems interested in running against Bernie Sanders...should he be?

-Virginia. Another state we haven't polled since November where the landscape has changed drastically. Obviously interested in testing Kaine and Perriello against Allen again but also in looking a little deeper at how much risk of getting Tea Partied Allen is.

-Wisconsin. I heard there might be some stuff going on there that would be interesting to poll about.

Voting is open until around 6 PM Wednesday. As always if I see the same IP address voting for something a zillion times I'm going to throw those votes out. Silly to cheat on something like this...

Top 2, or just the overall winner?

Vermont, though it's criminal that New Hampshire isn't here. You guys are WAY overdue for that.

I'd hold off on Virginia since Tim Kaine will decide soon enough on declining or annoucing his run and safe bet he's got his own private polls to help make his decision.

More interesting post-Kaine decision since Tom Perriello and other won't run if Kaine is while if Kaine declines, it's a bit more open.

Remind me, is this where we make suggestions on which candidates to poll in certain states, or has that window passed for this week?

It seems like WI and VA already won.
