Al Franken competitive!

Almost comedic in-itself due to its unlikeliness when the campaign was first announced. Liberal comedian Al Franken, if you're not up to speed, is running for a Minnesota Senate seat against Republican incumbent Norm Coleman.



It seems as if they're deadlocked, and according to some sources including www.electoral-vote.com which tracks election polls, Al Franken has pulled ahead in many polls. That's quite impressive considering Coleman was leading Franken by 10 points in june.



I can't wait until he gets elected...hopefully C-SPAN will finally be entertaining.

I used to live in Minnesota and voted for Norm Coleman. Al Franken is far too liberal and far too goofy looking to be an effective politician.

Current polling (notice the article is from 8/22) shows Coleman with a 41 to 37% lead. The margin of error is 4% so I guess you can call it competitive for it could be 41 to 41 or at the same time it could be 45 to 37 or 41 to 33.

Actually, the Rassmussen poll for October 22 shows Al Franken with a 41 to 37 lead. The Rassmussen poll for the 28th shows a 43-39% lead in Coleman's favor; within the margin of error.



Al Franken has in fact won most of October's polls (5 out of the 8).



Either a large number of Minnesotans keep changing their minds, or the polls show a virtual dead-heat.



This seat isn't in Coleman's pocket. Arguing polls at this point is pointless...we'll see who wins on (the day after) election day. That is, after all, the one poll that matters.
