Corker Leads Big; Ford in Town Tonight
Taegan Goddard's Political Wire links to a new SurveyUSA poll that shows Bob Corker at 49%, Ed Bryant at 29%, and Van Hilleary a distant third at 15%. (Van is closer to Tate Harrison than to Ed Bryant in this poll.)
Those who favor pollsters like Rasmussen have often viewed SurveyUSA as garbage. Who knows who's right? I don't put much stock in any polls, except the ones (as both Jay Bush and Bob Corker would say) at the ballot box.
One thing that can be said for sure: Bob Corker has shown a consistent, significant lead in all major polls released in recent weeks. (I'm not counting the Zogby internet fluff.)
Turning now to Corker's general election opponent, Harold Ford, Jr.: it is noted at HamDems.org that the Congressman will be in town for a rally at Bessie Smith Hall at 5pm.
The joe public household is becoming quite split on this US Senate race. It's not contentious or anything; it's just two independent adults making their own decisions. I'll have to tell the wife about this event to see if she wants to go before picking me up from work. I hope she doesn't stay too long.
