Indistinguishable Senate Delegations

One of the things I found interesting about our Alabama poll was how indistinguishable Jeff Sessions and Richard Shelby's approval numbers are. Shelby's at a positive 44/34 spread and Sessions is at 41/34. It's really not that surprising though- unless you are an avid follower of the Senate, what is the difference between Sessions and Shelby? They're both conservative Republicans who don't draw a whole lot of national media attention.

Alabama's one of five states we've polled in the last six months where voters felt pretty much the same way about both of their Senators. The others are:

-New Mexico, where Jeff Bingaman and Tom Udall's numbers are literally identical at 48/36 each.

-Maine, where Olympia Snowe's at 51/36 and Susan Collins is at 48/30.

-Georgia, where Saxby Chambliss is at 38/43 and Johnny Isaskon's at 36/38

-New Jersey, where Frank Lautenberg's at 36/45 and Bob Menendez is at 34/45.
