Shouldn't Bredesen be at 44? Anyway, not looking great. Texas might actually be more likely to flip, at this point, but Lean R still seems right for this race.

Seems to confirm that NBC tends to be a bit rosy for democrats. Bredesen will easily but up the best Democratic performance since 2006 but likely come up short by 4-5 points

Right? Seems like some Dems can't acknowledge plain reality.

Very Republican sample on this poll btw. Surprised Blackburn is only by 3 with it.

Nah, Fox (despite the horrid news portion of their services) is pretty solid with polling. Stop the unskewing just because the poll is disappointing to the Blue Wave Cult.

I don't think one or the other is necessarily more accurate, I'm just saying one is wrong.

Eh, the GOP will probably come home for Blackburn in the end.

Blackburn's favorable is way higher (and Breseden's lower) than the last poll, and yet the difference is only like 5, so it's pretty clearly a tossup right now.

Bayh is a terrible comparison. His post-Senate career was a disaster, optics-wise and not at all comparable to Bredesen. And if that wasn't enough, there is a big difference in the election environment, not to mention that presidential elections do not work the same as midterms.

Maybe there is another example out there that works, but Bayh doesn't.

If there is a good scenario for Bredesen, it is that he ends up like Heitkamp in 2012. Nobody seriously thinks he wins, but then he somehow pulls it out in the end in an unexpected stunner after everyone has given up. That is the only way he wins. Nobody should actually be expecting him to win or thinking that it is likely. This is Tennessee we are talking about here, not some swing state, not even some lean R state, but Tennessee.

If the polls end up saying Blackburn is ahead, sure. But if he pulls ahead that won't mean we'll be expecting that he loses.
