This poll is pretty boring, so I'm just going to post Rasmussen's ridiculously pretty picture of Oregon

As in, surviving or near death?  Tongue

Rasmussen has, consistently, shown the most Republican results here.  Their last result was a tie, around the same days SUSA said Merkley +5, R2K said +6, and the simultaneously godawful and Republican-leaning Riley Research said +1.

+3 is obviously a much closer result than recent polling, but it follows the clear pattern:  Unless there's some huge poll trickery going on here, Merkley will win.

The last poll was from PPP, a Democratic pollster.  I think Smith will lose by about 5 here, which is a shame, because there's really no reason for voters to oust him here aside from the highly unfavorable climate.

Also he doesn't represent their political views as well as his challenger.
