Nice.

Could still be a close race within 5% in either direction.

But at least Blackburn is not up by 14 like SurveyJunkey said.

Bredesen getting 20% of Republicans and wins Indies by 17 points.

And among very likely voters: 46-39 Bredesen

I'm not to keen on Emersons new methodology but its good to see them trying to keep up. In 2016, Emersons was landline only, now they're Landline + Surveymonkey.

The problem with Emerson is they never push undecideds. We have no idea if the undecideds here are pro-R and dislike Blackburn, or D-leaning/Indie who are a bit more liberal than Bredesen.

Also, I cant believe how weak Blackburn has been, shes just so hated, by literally everyone.

When you compare the results for RV and LV though, the Bredesen-margin increases by 1% and the undecideds go down.

Interesting, didnt look at those numbers. Thats very good for the Ds in TN, LV should be where Blackburn gets her margin, but if she fails at even that, the race should be tilt D.

Also, looking at the campaigns both are running, I find it telling that Blackburn's ads have been not about herself, but how Bredesen is a party hack. Thats a terrible line to use, especially if your the one who suffers from name rec. Funny enough, Rick Scott is doing the same thing....

And among very likely voters: 46-39 Bredesen

Excellent numbers.  It's possible for a D to win in a really non-atlas red state, it just takes winning a lot of crossover votes (easier said than done in this climate).  I remember Tom Daschle in South Dakota winning 56% of independents and 17% of Republicans in 2004, but it wasn't enough; he lost by 1.2%.

This does seem like an awful lot of undecideds though.

I think her primary percentage might be telling.  Sheís running against a literal nobody and should easily get like 75% or something.  If she wins by an embarrassingly close margin like 60-40 or something like that then I donít see how she wins the general.

Usually I donít think primary performance is indicative but this may be a case where it is

Remember when Emerson had only 17% of the electorate being black in Alabama of all places?

Yeah, no. Too many educated ones polled. This is clearly Lean R.

The coalition of Democrats plus independents plus moderate Republicans (and there remain several in Tennessee) that Bredesen is cobbling may be bearing fruit.    The tariff issue is affecting the whiskey distilleries and it appears to be hurting Blackburn here.

The fact that even Hysterical Hofoid can only squeeze a Lean R out of a Senate race in Tennessee says a lot about how things are going for Republicans right now
