As expected.

Only 14 points?
Surprising. I thought it would be larger: 25 points I guess.

This would probably be the only Harper poll I'd respect (they're one of the wildly off-base Republican pollsters, right?), mostly because it makes sense.

Likely R.

I expected a 20-point lead.

I'm surprising that it's only 14 points, especially since Weiland is literally unknown and Rounds is supposed to be a super popular ex-Governor. Likely R, but not safe. We'll see. It's still the best pickup opportunity for the GOP in 2014.

The latest PPP poll has Hagan + 14, so if you're going by polls, South Dakota and North Carolina are equal. lol

Interesting. I expected this to be a repeat of the Hoeven race in North Dakota in 2010, when he started out ahead 50 points in the polls and never looked back.

It will still take a miracle to retain the seat, but at least we're not completely screwed.

Rounds is ahead of 50, leading by double-digits, in a Republican state where the undecideds will probably break in his favor. I don't understand what everyone is tearing out their hair over; if you set ND 2010 as a standard for a clear lead you'll be disappointed all the time. Very Safe R.

Plus Harry Reid publicly repudiated Weiland as "not my choice" back in May.  (http://www.politico.com/story/2013/05/harry-reid-tom-daschle-south-dakota-senate-91646.html)

Pretty sure Harry Reid is taking into account his approval rating in South Dakota and is trying to sneakily help Weiland out ;)

Nobody is tearing out their hair. It's just ridiculous that a very popular ex-Governor in a very conservative state is up by FOURTEEN against an absolute TOTAL unknown. Of course it's safe R, but just strange that he's not up by 30.

Whatever makes y'all feel better, I guess.
