Looks like the readers of this blog aren’t too excited about ANY of the people being talked about as GOP candidates for the U.S. Senate in 2012.
“Other” won the poll with 45 percent of the votes, clobbering Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning, who garnered just 21 percent of votes, followed by State Auditor Mike Foley, with 17 percent of votes, U.S. Rep. Jeff Fortenberry with 10 percent and U.S. Rep. Lee Terry with 7 percent.
The “other” names written in were Tom Osborne, Tony Raimondo, “Almost anyone else,” Deena Winter, “Someone who WON’T turn into a politician,” Langemeier, John Spatz, Doug Emery, Deanne Curran, “None of these are good” and JB Milliken.
Far from scientific, this poll indicates little enthusiasm for any of the candidates at this point. So if Sen. Ben Nelson runs again, maybe he’ll generate more excitement than these Republicans.
