Dubious About Lunsford's "Lead"

Pol Watchers notes Washington political writers were skeptical about a Rasmussen poll that showed Bruce Lunsford leading Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell:

"It's delusional. It's not only silly, it's stupid," said Stuart Rothenberg, editor of the Rothenberg Political Report.

"Rasmussen has been preparing wrong polls. There is no reason to believe that Lunsford is leading McConnell in that race."

Rothenberg said it's "realistic" to believe that McConnell holds an 11-point lead.

"That's not a blowout," he said. "The Republican brand is damaged and he is leader of the Republicans in the Senate. But there is no way he is trailing in the race."

Jennifer Duffy, with the Cook Political Report, said, "I pay almost no attention to Rasmussen polls. The methodology is really flawed and they have a terrible track record."
