- Minnesota Senate Race -

Ok, trying to make sense of this poll, which came out today versus this one, which came out yesterday. They are almost mirror opposites, with Franken up by 9 in one, Coleman up by 10 in the other; about all they agree on is that the third party candidate, Barkley, is picking up substantial support (18 vs. 19 percent). This really makes you wonder how their methodologies could be so different as to be well outside the margin of error on either end. Clearly, someone had a poor sample or poor correction algorithm!
