Weekend Rasmussen poll shows Tester by two

Rasmussen released another poll for the Montana Senate race, and the results are encouraging: Tester at 50 percent, Burns at 48 percent. Based on Rasmussen trends, it looks like Tester’s support is holding steady at or above 50 percent, while Burns wobbles between 46 and 48 percent.

This is good news because, while Burns looks like he’s lured some of his conservative flock back into his camp from the undecided voters, Tester isn’t losing anybody.

With just 53 hours before polls close, it’ll take quite a lot for Burns to climb up that final two percent, especially with Democratic GOTV efforts in full swing.

And that’s important. According to some experienced Democratic activists down at Missoula HQ, they’ve never seen such an organized and energetic push as what’s happening this year. That is, all the volunteering you’re doing and all the money you’ve donated is actually playing out this weekend.

    Did the Rasmussen pool take the majority of responses from the Bozeman and Missoula regions like all the rest of the polls have been doing?

  2. Ha! Good one! Trust me, if the poll concentrated in Bozeman and Missoula, the result would be a lot more lopsided, at least based on the canvassing of the “swing” precincts I’ve visited.

  3. Throw Helena in there and it would have been Tester 85-15. By wednesday morning I call it at 7%.
