It’s only June, so why does this already feel like a nail-biter? A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey released today shows another 2 point split between Begich and Stevens in the senate race…only this time Stevens is up. Still well within the margin of error, but it would have been nice to see a widening split in Begich’s favor.
Today: Stevens 46%, Begich 44%
Last Month: Begich 47%, Stevens 45%
View Candidate Favorably? Stevens 51% Begich 55%
View Candidate Unfavorably? Stevens 44% Begich 36%
Amazingly, Ted Stevens’ favorable ratings have gone up 5% since last month! Huh? Amnesia has set in. We’re delirious from the long hours of daylight. All that corruption is SO…..last month. What is it? This must be stopped….
Hmmmm. Can you think of anything that might remind people how neck-deep Stevens is in Alaska’s cesspool of political corruption? Anything that might spark the people’s memories? (Hint: It’s related to him.) That’s right, sonny boy Ben! I’ve been on Ben-Watch since June 1st, when a coworker of a friend of a friend who knows something told me that the indictment of Stevens ‘the Lesser’ would be handed down within 30 days. That was 18 days ago. I claim no secret knowledge other than this really somewhat reliable gossip from said coworker of friend of friend in the know…but I’m counting anyway.
It’ll be interesting to see what Rasmussen Reports has to say after the fateful day, and the feeding frenzy of media coverage that is sure to follow.
Tick tick tick…
