Tom Dascle's Days Are Numbered

This is exciting news. The Dascle vs Thune Blog has Thune up three points in new poll out yesterday. Tom's days of being a liberal cheerleader in Washington DC and a "conservative when he gets home" are coming to a close. What is the most striking thing in the poll is the favorability gap between the two men. I will give this to Sen. Dascle, he is still leading over at Intrade/Tradesports. He was just trading at 56% last I looked. Once he gets starts trading below 50%, I believe the bottom will fall out. For years Dascle has gotten just enough crossover Republican votes to stay in power. He had to have those votes because South Dakota has a strong GOP registration advantage. Alas though, it is looking like those who have been croosing over are coming home this election.
