Polling on this Senate race has been all over the map, but the latest Zogby shows Brown opening up a double digit lead. I’m not sure if this will translate into voting percentages – OK, I’m quite sure it won’t – as it is probably mostly a sign that rank and file conservatives are not at all happy with DeWine. The question will be if they will sit it out or come back to the fold around late September.
I do feel that Sherrod’s messaging has been much better and he seems to be abandoning some of the things that, while important from a policy perspective, are useless from an electoral perspective. The best sign is some of his recent stuff on Iraq.
