Skip to comments.Nebraska: Bob Kerrey Tries to Build Momentum Against the Odds (uses bogus Edwards pollster)
Posted on 10/20/2012 6:56:07 PM PDT by Kolath
An internal poll released by the campaign of former Sen. Bob Kerrey (D) showed him within 5 points of Republican nominee Deb Fischer for the open Nebraska Senate seat.
The Fischer campaign cast doubt on the poll, which interviewed 600 likely voters over the phone between Oct. 14-16 and included calls to land lines and cellphones. The campaign cited a Politico story that ran at the beginning of the month about Kerrey pollster Harrison Hickman, who is said to have admitted under oath that he issued polls in the waning days of John Edwards 2008 presidential primary bid to make him seem more viable.
Bob Kerrey released numbers from the very same disgraced pollster who recently admitted under oath that he cherry-picked numbers to boost John Edwards struggling presidential campaign. Its déjà vu all over again, said Fischer campaign spokesman Daniel Keylin in an email.
This poll is a complete work of fiction that contradicts every public poll, Keylin continued.
The poll comes after an Omaha World-Herald survey last month that had Fischer up by 16 points. That poll surveyed 800 registered voters. Other polls also have shown Fischer with a double-digit lead.

When reporters asked the Kerrey campaign to release the internals of the poll (D/R/I breakdown, demographics, locations, etc.,), the Kerrey campaign balked.
Now that SEAL Team 6 is so high in the public eye, it would be interesting to hear what the member of Kerry’s team, the one that was a career SEAL and later served many years in SEAL team 6 had to say about Kerry’s leadership.
“Gerhard Klann, whose memories of Thanh Phong would differ greatly with what Kerrey claimed happened on that moonless night in the Mekong Delta.
Klann said not only were civilians deliberately killed, they were lined up and “executed” by rifle and machine-gun fire from a distance of only a few feet. The man who gave that order, Klann said, was Bob Kerrey.”
That old has been needs to be SOUNDLY DEFEATED.
GO Deb Fischer!!!!!!
I predict in the actual election he will pull no more than 35% of the vote.
Kerry, you are not going to win... CORNHUSKERS hates LIBERALS...
Where is the laugh track? The only thing Bob K is within 5 points of is the bottom.
