Bob Kerrey (Remember Him?) Releases Internal Poll
A Kerrey comeback? Let's not jump the gun just yet.
But a new internal poll conducted for Bob Kerrey's Nebraska Senate campaign shows the Democratic former senator closing the gap with GOP state Sen. Deb Fischer, lagging by just 5 points -- easily the closest margin he's had in any general-election poll.
In fact, it's the only poll that hasn't showed him losing by double digits.
The poll, conducted for Kerrey's campaign by Hickman Analytics, showed Fischer with 50 percent support to Kerrey's 45 percent support.
But a September Omaha World-Herald poll showed Kerrey losing 52 percent to 42 percent among registered voters, and 56 percent to 40 percent among likely voters. Back in June, a leaked Democratic poll showed Kerrey losing badly as well: 52 percent to 38 percent.
