Time for another poll vote, the options for where we go this weekend are:
-Iowa. Definitely worth a new GOP poll there in the brand new post-Huckabee and Trump world. Pretty sure Romney will be ahead but who else is gaining ground there?
-Massachusetts. Been nearly 6 months since we did a public poll in the state...things are getting worse for Republicans nationally, is the same true for Scott Brown?
-Minnesota. Amy Klobuchar has an opponent now so worth looking to see if she's as solid as she was at the end of last year...also curious whether Republicans in the state are more supportive of Bachmann or Pawlenty, although I think I know the answer...and whether Midwestern voters only dislike their new Republican Governors or if that extends to Democrats like Mark Dayton too.
-Montana. Closely contested Senate seat, open seats for House and Governor, one of few states where Obama lost in 2008 but could potentially win in 2012...there's a lot to work with in Montana.
-New Mexico. This state is becoming like Connecticut earlier in the year- we include it in every one of our votes and it never wins. No harm in keeping it in there though, especially now that we know there will be competitive primary contests for both parties in the effort to replace Jeff Bingaman.
-South Carolina. The only one of the major early Republican contests we haven't polled on in the last couple months...with Huckabee out and Gingrich imploding does Romney now lead in all four of the Iowa/New Hampshire/Nevada/South Carolina early contests? Certainly interested to find out.
Voting's open until roughly 5 PM Wednesday and as always don't stuff the ballot box.
