Breezing into tomorrow's primary, Sen. David Vitter seems only to be running against expectations, with polls spotting him a 70-point lead over Chet Traylor, who, having raised less than $100,000, has turned off his harsh radio attacks on the incumbent.
An independent poll by Public Policy Polling released this week shows that Vitter's approval ratings have gone up since June, Melancon's dipped slightly, and the Republican maintains a double digit lead, 51-41 percent.
Compared to a June poll by PPP, most of whose clients are Democrats, Vitter's job approval rating improved to 53-41 percent from 45-43 percent. It was Melancon whose favorability declined, to 26-48 percent in August, from 29-34 percent in June.

Wasn’t Vitter recently quoted (I think around July 4th) that he questioned Obama’s eligibility?
