Obama 2012

Nelson isn't much of a Democrat, but he's still better than a Republican and about as good as we can hope to get in Nebraska.

I had pretty much written Nelson off ... this is a good sign. The Dems need to hold onto every Senate seat they can.

2013 could be a true nightmare scenario for this country if the GOP controls the White House, House, & Senate ... it could happen and I really don't know if we can make it through that.. we're teetering already.


If the 2012 election comes down to "who are the adults?", then Ben Nelson wins.


2013 with a Republican House, Senate, and White House? That would be great. Finally, we can move this country in a better direction then socialism!!!

I don't think Ben Nelson could get elected honorary town drunk in 9 out of ten NE towns. This pol is seeing the results of recent tv time for Nelson. Wait till any opponent starts with the adds regarding Nelsons vote that passed Obamacare and the cornhusker kick back. Then we will see what happens to Nelson.


It depends in large part on how the presidential race goes. Expect to see active presidential campaigning in 01, and possibly in 02. If Republicans put up basically any of their options but Romney, then those Democratic crossover voters are far more likely to come back to Nelson. He's still a decided underdog, but that's a much-improved position from the virtual write-off this race was at the start of the year.

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
