Democrat Incumbent US Senator Chris Dodd Still in Trouble in Reelection Bid in Connecticut against Republican Challengers
Another long time Incumbent CT US Senator Chris Dodd fins himself in a real reelection battle in the the Nutmeg State. A recent Rasmussen poll has in under 50% against all Republican challengers; however, against former Congressman Rob Simmons, Dodd fins himself behind 49% to 39%
Chris Dodd is not laughing now as he sees his poll numbers
Longtime Connecticut Senator Chris Dodd, tarnished by last year’s financial blow-up, continues to struggle as he prepares for a reelection bid in 2010.
The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone poll finds that Republican challenger Rob Simmons leads Dodd 49% to 39% in an early look at next year’s potential match-up. Five percent (5%) say they’d prefer some other candidate, and six percent (6%) are not sure.
There is no doubt that Dodd is in some real trouble, Diver Down says The Next Right. Once again another Dem incumbent finds them self in some serious reelection trouble with no Obama coattails to be found.
The Daily Kos can shamefully refer to the Rasmussen poll all they want as GOP-leaning, the fact of the matter Scott Rasmussen is the best in the business as gets it right. When all other polls are skew sampling, the Rasmussen report has nailed many of the elections when all other bias polls did not even come close.
