Pay No Attention to That Poll!

Via JB, I see that Scott Rasmussen has released new polls numbers showing Kilgore with a 45%-39% lead over Kaine.

And what of the Other Candidate?

State Senator Russell Potts is running as a third option for voters. His name was not included in the survey. Instead, voters were given the option of supporting "some other candidate."

Rasmussen Reports believes that this approach produces a more reliable measure of support for minor candidates in most situations. During Election 2004, Rasmussen Reports did not include Ralph Nader by name.

Interesting...considering that "Other" still hovers around the margin of error.

But we all know by now that this poll will hardly get the same play as the Mason Dixon poll. Why, because they just aren't as personal.

Feh. But as interesting as these new numbers may be remember: It's summer...and there's nobody here but us chickens.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man
