McCain Dragging GOP Senators Down With Him
In a new poll released yesterday by Portland's KATU-TV and Survey USA, Merkley leads Smith 46 percent to 41 percent.
And Pollster.com shows that it's now Merkley's race to lose, with a trend average of 45 percent to 40 percent. Have a look at how about in mid-September, Smith's fortunes began to fall right along with the McCain-Palin ticket.
Smith isn’t as bad as some Senate Republicans -- not saying a lot, is it? -- but this would be an amazing pickup if Merkley can pull this out.
