Did SurveyUSA Get Franken vs McFadden Poll Wrong?

Yesterday, Breitbart News reported on a new KSTP/SurveyUSA poll that has Democrat Al Franken leading Republican challenger Mike McFadden 53 to 38 percent.

Franken Opens Double-Digit Lead Over McFadden

Update: The McFadden campaign has offered the following response to the survey. From Tom Erickson, McFadden for Senate spokesman, “If the guys at SurveyUSA really think that Democrat turnout in Minnesota will be higher than 2008 or 2012, then we’d like whatever they’re smoking. Clearly the Democrats don’t feel like Al Franken has a double-digit lead, or they wouldn’t be launching a million dollar attack ad campaign tomorrow.” Oct 21, 2014 7:13 AM PT

And with Democrats playing, too, it's more than fair game just weeks before the election. Oct 19, 2014 9:20 AM PT

Will The GOP Blow The Georgia Race?

White House Says What's His Name Speaks Truth To Power

In what may be one of the year's most brazen display of electoral politics uber alles, the White House opted to play nice regarding criticism from one of their own today - perhaps also because it wasn't long ago that the first lady couldn't even be bothered to get his name right on the stump.

A Leaderless GOP Asks Obama to 'Consider' Ebola Travel Ban

Perhaps in keeping with his self-proclaimed status as "Obama's best friend," or maybe thinking that the last thing the GOP should do before an election is show any real leadership from the one branch of government they actually do control, Republican House Speaker John Boehner stopped short of saying ... well, much of anything in a statement directed at the White House today.
