Another factor is people come out in droves and vote straight ticket no matter what. They do not educate themselves on the issues or who the candidates are or what they believe in.
Also, neither of these two are sweeping through 'wowing' Republican voters at this point and the straight ticket D's really don't care. But Pawlenty is still probably in the top 3. You could probably have the same poll for D candidates for 2016 and have similar results.
i won't preach to you. rather, i direct you to the non-profit website that our rogue moderators BANNED last week because of the truth it provided here at the huddle. it is no longer banned. read that as an indicator of how well i am doing v. the rogue mods. AND I WOULD BE REMISS IN NOT THANKING JJ FOR STEPPING UP AND DOING THE RIGHT THING. I WAS SURPRISED AND IMPRESSED. I HAD HIM ALL WRONG.
craft a message with stats. i'll listen. it shouldn't e hard. they archived virtually every poll released in the last thirth years there. your case should be easy to make.
and, like i said, i am all ears.
