Rounds will still win, but this is underwhelming.

It's Pressler who needs to drop out for sure.

It's pathetic that Rounds consistently can't break 40, but yeah this is still likely R (much closer to safe than lean). It's important to keep in mind that this isn't exactly like Kansas/Alaska, in that not all Pressler voters will go to Weiland if he drops out.

The deadline for dropping out in South Dakota has long past.  It was last month.  Anyone who drops out will remain on the ballot.

Does SD have a runoff, our is plurality enough?

If plurality is fine, I'm not convinced that Weiland is better off in a 1v1 than with Pressler in it.

Except he's down by 2 without Pressler and down by 11 with Pressler.

GA is the only (non-jungle primary) state with general election runoffs.

Maybe Dems should lean on Weiland to drop out then.

Also, Rounds' performance here has been/is pitiful.

Wow, I underestimated this race. Kinda pathetic that Rounds is nearly tied with Weiland. Presslers votes are all coming from democrat-leaning indies or liberal republicans.

Oh, cinyc. You don't understand, do you? Petty matters like legal ballot deadlines don't matter to the notorious ballot shysters in the opposition party.

Kansas and various other states where the Dems, set to lose, try to pull a magic ballot act and then whine on the rare occasion when the law triumphs.

Kobach is a partisan hack who doesn't give a damn about the law. If the situation were reversed, he'd still rule in favor of the GOP.

Exhibit #535,753 why SoS should not be a partisan office.

In Nebraska, Republicans removed their violent Lt. Governor nominee from the ballot, even though the deadline passed. So, yeah, you might not want to rethink your comment.

Right...and it's wrong there, too.

Yes, the [insert "Phil, you're a bad, bad boy!" line here when you don't want to respectfully answer or even kindly disagree] has been satisfied for this thread.

I'll make a deal with you. I'll respectfully answer of kindly disagree to the large majority of posts you make. To the sarcastic comments being posted on literally every poll thread in this group, I'll call you a bad, bad boy. Sounds fair? Smiley

I think it would be more helpful if Weiland dropped out, if defeating Rounds is the aim. I guess Weiland has a higher floor than Pressler, but a lower ceiling. Pressler getting a majority is much more likely than Weiland getting one.

As others have pointed out, as we're past the deadline, a candidate who would drop out would remain on the ballot.
