Conrad Burns: Confirmed With Pulse

Doubt that there is a GOP surge - perhaps small, but definitely appearing? Conrad Burns is within 51-48 of Jon Tester in Montana. Plus, according to the Hotline, the NRSC is starting to air ads on behalf of Burns again.

Apart from having him within 3, the latest poll has him at 48% support (as opposed to other recent polls, which showed him at 42 or 43). If conservative voters are really coming home, Burns has a chance.

So New Jersey, Maryland, Minnesota, Montana, Virginia, and (I believe) Tennessee are all looking better for the GOP. It puts me in an optimistic mood, but I remind myself that trends can turn around at any time.

Back to the top.
