News from the Votemaster
Poll of the Day
As we move into the final 3 days of the campaign, we have some surprising changes in the polls. Montana, which looked like an easy win for Democrat Jon Tester over Sen. Conrad Burns (R-MT), a close ally of disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff, is getting much closer. A new Mason-Dixon poll says it is tied at 47% each.
On the other hand, New Jersey, which had been close, is no longer. Incumbent Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) has a comfortable lead of 50% to 42% according to a new Marist College poll. Similar, Bob Corker is pulling away from Harold Ford in Tennessee, with a lead of 50% to 38% according to Mason-Dixon.
The results of 9 new House polls are given below.
