Norm Coleman Spanks Al Franken

although you would never know it by the way Minnesota Public Radio spins it:

Despite declining popularity, Coleman comfortable in Senate re-election bid

Ah, yes. What would Ace say? Something about "it's how they frame the issue" I think.

Basically, the article says that Coleman (who had a combined favorable rating of 52% in 2004) is skating on thin ice because his new combined favorable rating is...

48%.

Which got me wondering. What's the margin of error for this poll?

Gasp! It's 4%.

So, statistically, Coleman could be in the exact same place he was in 2004. Only he's not. He is "declining in popularity" according to MPR.

I hope he isn't losing much sleep.

The more interesting poll results are the one's that fall outside the margin of error. Check this out:

Matched up again Franken, Coleman would win 54 to 32 percent. Against Ciresi, he would win 52 to 29 percent.

While Coleman is struggling with popularity, his negative ratings are well below those of Al Franken. According to the poll, nearly 8 of 10 Minnesotans know who Franken is and, of them, nearly a third have an unfavorable opinion of him.

Oh well. I guess Franken can always uses that incredible sense of humor to get himself back in Minnesotans good graces.

Oh.

Right.

Let me be the first to congratulate you on your re-election Sen. Coleman!
