KELOLAND.COM  is reporting that Thune is within the margin of error, tied with Daschle, in what will amount ot the hottest Senate race this season:
“49% of voters would support democrat Tom Daschle. 47% would vote for republican John Thune. And just 4 percent are undecided. There’s a three and a half percent margin of error.”
It gets better, though;
54% of voters polled feel favorable about him. That’s compared to 51% favorability for Daschle. That’s about how voters have felt about Thune all along, while Daschle’s numbers have slipped some in the last few months.
I’ll be watching this one, rest assured.
