Montana Senate 2012: Somebody’s Vulnerable

An early poll was released today from Public Policy Polling (PPP) about Montana’s U.S. Senate race in 2012.  You can view the results HERE (PDF).

The poll was conducted November 11-13 and 1,176 Montana voters were surveyed.  The margin of error is +/- 2.9%.  By the way, PPP leans Democrat according to several sources.    

The poll shows Congressman Denny Rehberg leading Senator Jon Tester 48-46 (within the margin of error). Former Governor Marc Racicot leads Tester 49-42.  As for the only GOP candidate who has announced that he is running, Steve Daines, he is trailing Tester 48-37. 

This poll is probably good news for anyone thinking of running against Jon Tester.  He is vulnerable.
