Poll: Nussle Closing Gap on Vilsack
In an attempt to suppress Me and his 16-year congressional record, it appears Jim’s diagnosed condition, “Chronic Selective Amnesia” (a psychosomatic effect of his previously diagnosed “Post Uncontested Primary Traumatic Stress Disorder”), has reared it’s ugly head during the final election push.
What the poll fails to indicate is that Nussle has narrowed the margin and is actually closing the “loyalty gap” with his faithful supporters. Internal polls show a 7% decline since September for those same Nussle supporters who would choose Vilsack over Nussle. This shift is namely due to Jim’s aggressive campaigning against Vilsack in recent stump speeches and televised debates, not to mention stepping up his “Anybody But Vilsack” efforts. Sales of “Anybody but Vilsack” t-shirts, bumper stickers, coffee mugs, and stained-glass window sets, have nearly tripled over the last three weeks. Cha-ching!
Despite Vilsack’s self-imposed term limit, Jim is determined to beat Vilsack come November, doing his part in helping send the two-term Governor off to Washington, D.C. This is the first time I’ve seen Jim truly enjoying himself during his gubernatorial bid, and I’ll be Jim damned if I’m going to be the one to remind him that he’s running against Culver, not Vilsack.
