Jesus Christ. Even in a poll called "People for Weiland," there is no reason Rounds should be up by SIX POINTS. Also, why is the libertarian getting 11%? The rest of these are unsurprising. Since Generic R/D generally outperforms the names of specific candidates, Nunn is probably up on Gingrey/Kingston/Handel/Broun by 3 or 4, especially since the word "Republican opponent" is viewed favorably in Georgia, more so than either of those four names for sure.

Also, why the HELL did they not poll Montana? I think that most of us would have liked to have seen that over any of these races aside from maybe Arkansas.

Don't worry guys, the NRSC has come to the rescue and unskewed these polls for us. It turns out they're actually GREAT news for Republicans.

This article is absolutely hilarious. Not only do they make the absurd claim that Generic R/D UNDERPERFORMS the actual candidates, but they also try to invalidate Michigan's PPP poll by citing the EPIC-MRA and MIRSNews polls that have been proven massively junky. I love this. I'm sure they said the same thing in 2012.
