We'll do two state poll this weekend. The choices are:
-California. We've seen several polls now showing less than stellar approval and generic reelect numbers for Dianne Feinstein. The big question though is whether she's vulnerable against actual Republicans- would be interesting to test some names against her and see how it comes out.
-Connecticut. It's been over 6 months since we polled the state and with several candidates in the US Senate race now who weren't in it then it's probably worth taking a fresh look.
-Florida. Never a shortage of things to poll in Florida- interested to see how bad Obama's doing, whether Bill Nelson's holding up, if Rick Perry's winning the primary there, etc.
-Maine. Another one where it's been more than six months- with Tea Party fever seeming to wane a little bit nationally will Olympia Snowe have an easier path to renomination? And could Mitt Romney make it competitive with Barack Obama there as the President hits record lows nationally?
-Minnesota. It would be very interesting to see how their Presidential bids have impacted the images of Tim Pawlenty and Michele Bachmann in the state. If Bachmann's running behind Romney and Perry even in Minnesota that's one of the strongest data points yet pointing to how done she is. And sure I guess we'll test a Pawlenty/Al Franken head to head since I know you junkies are dying to see it.
-New Hampshire. The last month has been remarkably light on New Hampshire polls- I have a feeling we'll soon see a rash of them with the open Governor's race. What I'm more interested in though is the state of the GOP contest as Perry holds a big lead nationally- is Romney's firewall in danger?
-Pennsylvania. Magellan Stategies released a poll yesterday that was far better for Obama than our last few polls there- interested to see if we get any confirmation on that as well as how voters in the state react to the dispensing electoral votes by Congressional District proposal.
-Washington. New poll out yesterday showed a much worse picture for Jay Inslee in the Governor's race than the previous few polls had. Interested to see if we confirm that and also to check in on Maria Cantwell and see how she's faring.
Voting is open until 5 PM tomorrow, please do not rig the vote or we'll throw out the state you're rigging it for.
