NRSC: “What Melancon’s Own Internal Polls Tells Us
Once again, Charlie Melancon’s handlers are pushing flawed internal polling, desperately attempting to distract from the months of consecutive public polls showing their candidate trailing Senator Vitter by a massive double-digit deficit. Today, they claim that Melancon is trailing by 7 points. What’s funny-or not funny, so much as pathetic-about this, is that the Melancon campaign has tried this same trick already, three times, with their most recent attempt coming just weeks ago (see the email below).
Needless to say, Melancon’s desperate stunt failed all three times, and despite the Democrats spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on vicious attack ads, “>RealClearPolitics shows Senator Vitter with a 51-36 average poll lead.
I hope you’ll keep this in mind when considering Congressman Melancon’s fourth desperate attempt to convince you to write about his far-fetched internal poll numbers.
