It's a Tie
Harold Ford's recent internal poll showing him up slightly on Corker had an impressively huge sample. Now, Rasmussen's new poll shows him just 1 point behind. It's a race, and time for the national prognosticators, and liberal blogosphere, to upgrade Tennessee in the possible Dem pickup category, and to start giving it the attention and money it could use.
There is a long way to go, but I'm impressed with how hard Ford is campaigning, and confused about how absent Corker is. Ford's not great on alot of issues. And he is surely campaigning as the most conservative version of himself he can muster, which gives me heartburn but is a reflection of our state. Still, he is being tough - on Bush and on Corker - he's got ideas, energy and the best-produced tv ads of any Senate candidate this cycle.
