PPP: Tester ahead in Montana, Libertarians strong




Here are some of the first results from findings in Montana by Public Policy Polling:
PPP's newest poll of the Montana Senate race finds Jon Tester with a small lead over Denny Rehberg, 45-43. Libertarian Dan Cox is polling at 8%, and 3% of voters remain undecided. This is the second survey in a row where we have found Tester with the lead. Montana's a state where Gary Johnson may have a bigger impact than other places. When he's included he polls at 7% and since he pulls more from Romney than Obama he pushes Mitt's lead down to a 46-43 margin. The race for Montana's open House seat looks like a toss up. Republican Steve Daines has a narrow edge over Democratic opponent Kim Gillan, 40-37, with Libertarian Dave Kaiser at 9%. Gillan has gained 3 points on Daines since our last poll of the race in the spring.

Q12 Would you describe yourself as very liberal,
somewhat liberal, moderate, somewhat
conservative, or very conservative?
Very liberal ...................................................... 13%
Somewhat liberal ............................................ 13%
Moderate......................................................... 28%
Somewhat conservative.................................. 24%
Very conservative ........................................... 21%


Rasmussen polled an alternative universe last month.

President Obama is very strong in Gary Johnson's state of New Mexico.

PPP says that the GOP is polling horribly in Minnesota: Michele Bachmann, Teabag mentor to South Dakota's Kristi Noem, has nearly fallen off the charts.

Horrified at his party's struggling nominee, Willard Romney, Sen. McCain tweeted, "Just watched an excellent and moving stmt by Sec. Clinton- just the right message and tone."
