Friday Open Thread [8.29.14]

Filed in National by on August 29, 2014

Here are some more polling goodness for this Friday before a long Labor Day Weekend. I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday.

KANSAS–SENATOR–SurveyUSA: Sen. Pat Roberts (R) 37, Chad Taylor (D) 32, Greg Orman (I) 20. This piece by Booman provides more information on this suddenly important race. If the Independent wins, he may caucus with the Dems, and if the Democrat drops out, the Independent wins this race in a landslide apparently. If the Independent drops out, Roberts hangs on against Taylor the Democrat by 4 points, proof enough of some ingrained genetic partisanship.

KANSAS–GOVERNOR–Brownback Internal Poll (R): Gov. Sam Brownback (R) 43, Paul Davis (D) 42.

PENNSYLVANIA–GOVERNOR–Franklin & Marshall College: Tom Wolf (D) 49, Gov. Tom Corbett (R) 24.

MICHIGAN–GOVERNOR–EPIC-MRA: Mark Schauer (D) 45, Gov. Rick Snyder (R) 43.

MASSACHUSETTS–GOVERNOR–Boston Globe: Martha Coakley (D) 41, Charlie Baker (R) 34.

    That Brownback internal poll is pathetic. That’s the best he can do? Corbett is looking rather toasty. Also, GOP wave, where is it?

  2. bamboozer says:

    Agreed, Corbett is toasty to say the least and believe Brownback is at the very best a tie, more likely behind by a good bit. There seems to be a bit of back and forth in the polls, but then I trust pollsters every bit as much as I trust politicians.

    Nate Silver still has the probability of a GOP Senate at 60%.
