Mmmm, beer

Looks like Corker’s lead in the Tennessee Senate race has pulled out of the margin of error:

A new Wall Street Journal/ Zogby Poll released today shows Republican Senate candidate Bob Corker with a 7 point lead over Washington Congressman Harold Ford. The independent poll has a margin of error of 3.3%.

I was to the point where I could taste all that free beer I was bound to get. But AC:

So what do you think this means? Is this poll proof that the Ford campaign has reached its ceiling and that the retooled Corker campaign has reclaimed it’s rightful place atop the heap?

Or is this just one more poll among many others that will swing back and forth right up until election day?

Gonna be down to the wire.

    A Zogby online poll and $3 at Starbucks buys you a $3 cup of coffee.

    Remember, Zogby predicted a Kerry win in 2004……

    I know.

    I’d like to believe it’s because alot of Tennesee gun owners have looked at Ford’s record, not what he’s saying today.

    You might like to believe that, but I seriously doubt it’s true. As much as gun activists might like to think otherwise, guns just aren’t that important of an election issue, unless a candidate has an extreme position. The vast majority of gun activists would sooner go to a Streisand concert than vote Democrat, no matter who the Democrat is. Similarly, the grabbers would sooner buy a lifetime NRA membership than vote Republican. Elections are won and lost by trying to appeal to the median voter, and the median voter, even in Tennessee, just doesn’t care all that much about the gun issue, at least not compared to others.

    This is why, on nearly every issue, the candidates will do the best they can to sound “reasonable” and appeal to the moderate voter while simultaneously trying hard not to piss off their base.
