Another day, another poll, this one by a conservative source — the Conservative Intelligence Briefing — described as “your best source for insider news and information about Conservative Republican candidates and politics.”
It claims a poll Aug. 4-5 of 587 likely voters finished this way:
Tom Cotton 43
Mark Pryor 41
That’s a statistical dead heat. The poll has a 4% margin of error.
Polling to date effectively puts the anybody-but-Pryor vote at 43 percent-plus. In fact, in this poll, 48 percent said they’d prefer another senator, but only 43 percent went for Cotton. I still believe driving negatives to fight for that 16 percent is going to make TV intolerable.
