Tester Leads Rehberg By 5

Today’s Montana Chamber of Commerce/Market Research Insight certainly contains some numbers that can’t make the Rehberg team feel very confident.

Denny Rehberg - Caricature

In a poll that consisted of 49% Republican voters and 32% Democratic voters, Senator Tester is leading Representative Rehberg 42-37.

A five point gap is well just outside the poll’s margin of error, but given the demographics, the numbers represent a real potential challenge for the subdivision rancher from Billings.

Perhaps spending the first year of a Senate campaign suing the largest state, alienating your base with federal land grabs, and writing legislation that would lead to poisoned children’s toys isn’t a good idea after all.
