Its gravis, garbage.

Edit: The poll also says that a majority of voters oppose Same Sex Marriage. Color me skeptical.

But many posters told me Bredesen was inevitable because of muh six month early polls. Roll Eyes

It's all downhill for Bredesen from here. Dems might as well triage this race now, it's a waste of money.

Bredesen doing worse than unelectable joke candidate Jacky Rosen? No way!

J/k, this is Gravis and should be taken with a grain of salt. The race is still a Tossup because there is nothing Blackburn can do to win over #NeverTrump "Republicans"/"moderates" in places like Davidson and Williamson County, but she can still win if she gets her base out and East and rural TN come home.

Gravis should be treated with skepticism when:

A) it shows a good result for a Democrat
B) it shows a good result for a Republican
C) always, no matter the result, because itís f*#@ing Gravis

I wonder who sponsored this poll? Thats usually  the story when they get wildly different results, its because they were sponsored.

Undecideds here are disproportionately women, voters under age 30, and independents. In this election cycle, that's likely a good sign for Bredesen.

Does anybody know what AA turnout typically looks like in Tennessee? Is the 14% figure in this poll on the mark?

This is similar to Bayh where the Dems in the end were overtaken in the end.

In the spirit of overreacting to a single Gravis poll, I will note one of my "bold" Senate predictions was:


I accept accolades in advance. Tongue

It is apparently easy to forget just how deep a deep-red state TN is these days. Although Bredesen will definitely overperform big time for a Democrat, he has a very steep hill to climb.

The poll also says that a majority of voters oppose Same Sex Marriage. Color me skeptical.

What's hard to believe about 53% of people in a conservative state opposing same-sex marriage? Or have you bought into the media narrative that there's now total consensus in the country on this issue?

Well, its because, in the most recent surveys on the issue, around 2/3s are supportive of SSM, with only 30% against it. It just seems unlikely to me that TN, a rather moderate GOP state with a sizable Indie and Dem population, would be majority against it.

TN governor race is safe R, but I wouldn't count out Bredesen just yet.

The best thing to happen for Blackburn was to have Lee win the Gubernatorial Primary.  The factions of the Party will come together.

This. I think Blackburn will take it in the end, winning 52-46%.

Bayh would win his Senate race if he were running in 2018.
