From the Press Release:
MSU BILLINGS NEWSóWith the U.S. Senate race drawing national attention this election cycle, incumbent Democratic Sen. Jon Tester appears to be pulling away, according to the results of the 31st Montana Poll conducted by Montana State University Billings. Tester is leading Republican candidate Matt Rosendale by a nine-point margin (47 percent to 38 percent) with two weeks left until Election Day on Nov. 6. Three percent of respondents said they would vote for Libertarian candidate Rick Breckenridge, while 12 percent are undecided.

I think Tester is ahead, but not by 9.

Anyone want to guess what that MSU Billings poll will show? My guess is Tester +9 or something like that.

Well, at least this should be more accurate than the poll that had Tester up 24.

MT-AL:
Gianforte - 44%
Williams - 41%

Daines Approval: 42%-29%

Bullock Approval: 46%-26%

Trump Approval: 49%-42% Surely this number is higher in favor of Trump, right?

Asked a lot of other interesting questions.

I guess they were decent on the final margin in 2012, although it was earlier in the month and with a seemingly high number of undecideds:

And they skewed slightly dem in the 2016 governor and white house races:

Good news for Tester, but it's a Uni poll with a sample size under 500, and he's still below 50. I wouldn't put too much stock in it.

Oh, cool. Can we get Missoula tomorrow? Maybe they'll show Tester +6!

Actually, is there an MSU satellite campus in Garfield County? Maybe that could be the one to finally show ROSENdale ahead.

This is super confusing.

Anyway, I don't buy that Tester is up by that much, certainly not with that many undecideds.

Hopefully we get one from every MSU campus before election day. Whichever comes closest to the actual result can get more pork barrel spending to fund their school from lovely #populist Purple heart Steve Bullock.

Maybe it can be considered a crash from that 24 point poll.

In all seriousness, Tester may be favored, but he will not win by this much.

Me neither, I think that Bozeman poll is an accurate reflection of where things stand: a small but consistent/stubborn advantage for Tester. Then again, this entire race is pretty much a meme at this point.

That it became a (lame) meme in Atlas doesn't mean it is one, tough.
