Rasmussen poll numbers for North Dakota Senate race……

Rasmussen Survey

North Dakota

John Hoeven (R) 58 %
Byron Dorgan (D) 36 %
Undecided 6 %

Byron Dorgan (D) 52 %
Duane Sand (R) 37 %
Others 3 %
Undecided 8 %

I’ll bet Dorgan would like to see Sand win the GOP primary huh?

Update:….it appears that things are not what they may seem to be….we’re checking on things up there in North Dakota…..stay tuned….

  1. Rasmussen basically confirmed a Zogby Poll (I do not put much stock in Zogby) from the beginning of the month when Senators voted to open Debate on Health Care.

    AND those Numbers will likely encouraging Hoeven even further to run for Senate.

  3. Just for the Record: Zogby had the ND Senate Race at 55-36 in a Poll conducted Nov. 17-18.

    So

    Zogby = Hoeven + 19
    Rasmussen = Hoeven + 22

  4. ok…don’t get too excited this Hoeven guy ain’t even running…like Cuomo in New York once he tosses his hat in the ring his numbers will drop….I’d say he’d be the front runner….. but let’s hold our horses, huh?

  5. Actually, Dorgan would like to see Hoeven get the nomination. The reason is that Hoeven is a big spender who has given money to Dorgan in the past. It kind of cancels out the “big spender” tag on Dorgan doesn’t it?
    Paul Sorum of Fargo is the clear favorite to get the nomination. State polling shows him neck and neck with Dorgan. Sorum is a real conservative with a great many political allies.
    Dorgan would beat Hoeven in a head to head race but I don’t see him beating Sorum. Go to http://www.paulsorum.com and learn about this exciting candidate.

    • ok…wait a minute here?…….Hoeven HAS GIVEN MONEY TO Dorgen?????…please follow up…..

      • Just dismiss Sorum. He has no chance against Dorgan AND Cornyn doesn’t like him either.

        Cornyn wants Hoeven and he’ll get him in.

  6. Paul Sorum as far as the Dog can sniff out, is a fringe candiadete who has jumped into the race….he raised $2,000 in 2008 accorrding to state records on file……doesn’t like to call himself for any party…but was proabably a republican in another life…..

    contaraty to reports here Hoeven most likely WILL NOT run….some people up there in North Dakota are trying to get Hoeven to run…..but have had no luck…..

    Right now…. the race is Dorgen…..

    • I never said he is running.

      I just said that Conservative Bloggers expect him to announce in January AND I expect him to make a formal Announcement one way or the other in January.
