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...
