Vanity: Democrat Bob Kerrey's Polling cred is falling apart (Nebraska Senate Race)

In the past few days, questions have been swirling on Bob Kerrey's (Dem NE Senate Candidate) claims that he's only 3 pts behind his opponent, State Senator Deb Fischer (Rep). His pollster, Pharos has been cited for numerous "red flags".



Pharos claims to have conducted five polls this month alone, all of them showing the race increasingly tight. While Republican Deb Fischer’s U.S. Senate campaign has disputed this, Pharos’ results were close to that of the Omaha World-Herald’s recent poll calling it a 3-point race.

The Daily Kos saw red flags, such as Pharos reporting results to the hundredths of a percent, which it called “false accuracy” that is “a hallmark of questionable pollsters.”

I think he’s toast. I read somewhere that most young voters don’t even know who he is/was. Older voter’s still remember that he pulled a Ben Nelson years ago for Klintoon.

Kind of surprised Fischer hasn’t been beating that drum!
