Normally when you see poll numbers like that you assume an incumbent is in real trouble

But, hey, who believes a Democratic polling operation these days, right? Public Policy Polling has businessman Ron Johnson at 43% to Senator Russ Feingold’s 45%. Hmmm. Is Rasmussen right?

A word of advice to my liberal readers, believe the polls. Republicans didn’t want to believe the polls the last two election cycles either. Ask them how well wishful thinking worked out for them.

I understand Feingold’s next “campaign finance proposal” is to ban the discussion of any poll regarding his re-election chances.

Speaking of liberal polling outfits, with the revelation by Daily Kos that he now believes the Research 2000 polls were completely fraudulent, will it delay his book on the evil stupidity of Republicans?

More important locally, will WISC-TV issue a statement about their use of Research 2000 for their polling? Markos Moulitsas of Daily Kos on why he considered Research 2000 to be trustworthy:

I want to feel stupid for being defrauded, but fact is Research 2000 had a good reputation in political circles. Among its clients the last two years have been KCCI-TV in Iowa, WCAX-TV in Vermont, WISC-TV in Wisconsin, WKYT-TV in Kentucky, Lee Enterprises, the Concord Monitor, The Florida Times-Union, WSBT-TV/WISH-TV/WANE-TV in Indiana, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Bergen Record, and the Reno Gazette-Journal. {emphasis added – jw}
