This is probably closer to the truth than some of the other recent polls, but that's a lot of undecideds.

Like I said in the last WV poll, Capito is probably leading by 10-11 points. And as Gass pointed out, there are still a lot of undecided!

4% of the vote going to "other?" I would be skeptical of that, but so far, the only declared candidate is Phil Hudok who's a Tea Partier running with the Constitution Party and I could see a handful of Raese voters jumping ship for Hudok upset over Capito's views on abortion among other things.

I personally think we stand a better chance in South Dakota than here at this point. Rounds has a primary after all while Capito doesn't and we've yet to see a single poll with Pressler. WV is likely R and pretty much a lost cause no matter if Tennant runs a Manchin-like campaign or not. This race is one of the few exceptions where Obama's killer approval will matter significantly and Tennant can't afford any socially liberal views at all. She'll not only have to worry about defending her record and avoiding any ideological connection to Obama at all, but also go on the offense and nationalize the race against Capito. I think this poll might be just a little bit favoring Capito who's probably up by close to if not double digits, but Capito still has a better chance than Rounds has.

This is the same Rasmussen that had Landrieu down 44/40. This race is far from over. The Capito campaign surely want you to believe that.
