Politics Cantwell Counters with Numbers of Her Own
The McGavick campaign caused a serious stir yesterday with numbers from a
GOP Rasmussen poll showing the race in a statistical dead heató44 to 40, Cantwell.
Well, Cantwell rapid-responsed today with a polling analysis of her own, done by the
the Democrats the Mellman Group, highlighting that Cantwell is comfortably ahead by 9.6 points. (I’d link you to the report, but the copy I have is in some weird format that I can’t seem to plug in here.)
Anyway, stupid move. Because it just makes voters think… “WTF? That’s confusing. Who knows?”
And that’s good for McGavick because now the numbers, which technically favor Cantwell, become suspect and confusing and… irrelevant.
Campaign Cantwell should have ignored the McGavick poll and most people would have still considered Cantwell the big frontrunner.
