Nebraska is, undoubtedly, a blood-red state. But still, Deb Fischer leading Bob Kerrey in the 2012 Senate race by a whopping 18 points? That’s pretty intense.
Kerrey held two terms in the Senate and another one as governor, meaning, his recognition is hardly diminutive. Conversely, Fischer lagged behind Republican rivals Stenberg and Bruning only weeks ago. She’s pretty green, and she’s leaving her Democratic foe in the dust.
Fischer has secured an 18-point lead over Bob Kerrey in a Rasmussen poll of Nebraska Senate race sinc her big upset last week.
A new poll of voters in Nebraska reveals Fischer with 56 percent over Kerrey’s 38 percent. Two percent support other candidates, and three percent are undecided.
The question, of course, is whether Fischer will fall victim to the recent insurgent-primary trend that plagued former candidates like Angle and O’Donnell. Let’s hope not.
