Funny that they didn't poll the runoff.

Has Nunn even been attacked seriously yet?

Once AFP starts running ads against her, she'll plunge.

Actually, Windjammer, from what I've heard, AFP stopped airing ads in Arkansas a while ago. Why? I don't understand, but apparently they did.

Nunn completely botched her response on Obamacare (so much so that MSNBC called it out as being horrific) and her original (pre-flip flop) answer on the Veterans Affairs situation won't help her either. She has not dealt with a lot of attack ads so far, but I don't expect her numbers to go up.

Not to mention this is Rasmussen.

Indeed, because it''s the runoff that decided everything.

As you know, I don't think she will win at all. But seriously, attack ads against her won't be the cause, I mean, big money works so well in politics... Whitman, Alameel, Macmahon, they all failed miserably!

Money in politics works... but only to an extent. If a candidate has already spent so much, then it doesn't matter how much more money they spend: for example, Jon Corzine spent $50 Million for a Senate seat he only won by 3 (and outspent his Republican by a margin of, I think, 10-1). On the other side:  If a candidate is so doomed, money can't fix that. Blanche Lincoln outspent whoever the Republican was by 9-1, and lost by one of the largest margins an incumbent has ever lost by.

However, no candidate is doomed or has already spent beyond a crazy amaount here, so money is fairplay, but that doesn't necessairly mean the candidate with the most money will win.

Well, seriously, I don't think money has no influence as well.

I mean, it only works when people don't have any name recognition. The GA primary, the PA primary,... All of them didn't have a great name recognition, that's why big money worked so well for Wolf and Perdue.

But in some other states, it doesn't work at all. I mean, Mark Pryor, even if Afd seems to have ended their attack, he has really been extremely attacked, and no change for him basically if we compare with his situation 6 month ago. Simply because Pryor has a great namer recognition (senator + his father)!
