Public Policy Polling:
PPP’s new survey of Minnesota voters finds Al Franken comfortably leading all potential challengers. Franken leads Michele Bachmann 55% to 38%. He leads Jason Lewis by 54% to 37%. Franken bests Republican Mike McFadden 51%-36%. He leads Julianne Ortman 52%-35%. Julie Rosen trails Franken 36%-52%. Rounding out the bunch, Rich Stanek faces a 36%-51% deficit against the Senator.
Franken himself is popular, with a 51% approval rating to 42% disapproval. Bachmann is deeply unpopular, at 34% favorable, 60% unfavorable and 7% not sure.
“Al Franken has proven to be a pretty popular Senator,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. “Add to that a relatively weak Republican bench in Minnesota and he’s looking like a clear favorite for reelection.”
Okay look here's the plan.
We need to surreptitiously contact some of the Tea Party groups and convince them that this PPP poll was fixed to show that Bachmann has no chance against Franken because the liberals are afraid that if she ran against him she would beat him hands down.
Then we simply need to send e-mails of support to Bachmann telling her how she is the ONLY Representative in Minnesota worth a damn and that she should really be in the Senate. (Oh and send some to Marcus telling him that the choices for Senate interns are far cuter than the left over ones that end up working for the Congress.)
Then we need to get a HUGE bowl of popcorn and watch the show, because I cannot think of ANYTHING that I would rather see than Al Franken crushing Michele Bachmann like a crazy eyed bug meeting a semi truck windshield at 60 miles per hour.
No seriously, I think it can work! Don't you?
