Herseth Sandlin leads in new poll, say Democrats

This time, the poll hnumbers favor Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee today released a new Anzalone Liszt Research poll that shows Herseth Sandlin leading Republican challenger state Rep. Kristi Noem by 9 percent in a two-way match up and by 11 percent in a three-way match-up.

This is the first poll released by the Democrats. Republicans have crowed over three previous polls from Rasmussen Reports that show Noem with a lead. The D’s claim Rasmussen’s numbers are unreliable because Scott Rasmussen, the company’s founder and owner, is a former GOP operative with well-known Republican and conservative leanings.

According to the release from the DCCC,”In the initial head-to-head in the race for South Dakota’s At-Large congressional district, Herseth Sandlin leads Noem 50 to 41 percent. When including independent candidate B. Thomas Marking, Herseth Sandlin’s lead expands to 50 percent to 39 percent with Marking receiving 4 percent. Conducted August 31-September 2, the poll surveyed 400 likely voters and has a 4.9 percent margin of error.

“Stephanie Herseth Sandlin has always put South Dakota first and her record proves it,” said Gabby Adler, Midwestern Regional Press Secretary for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “South Dakotans value Stephanie’s centrist approach and voters are once again standing with Stephanie because she is on the right side of the issues. While Kristi Noem supports extreme policies that hurt middle class families, Stephanie continues to focus on the common sense solutions South Dakotans expect and deserve from their lone voice in the U.S. House.”

    • Anzalone Liszt?

      Interesting that in the story the “Dems claim that Rasmussen’s numbers are unreliable because Scott Rasmussen, the company’s founder and owner, is a former GOP operative with well-known Republican and conservative leanings” while a quick search of Anzalone Liszt shows that they are a democractic polling organization. It even says so in their charter.

      Ironic that one of Anzolone Liszt’s other poll results is a poll showing broad public support for ObamaCare and how it will aid the election efforts of incumbant Democrats.

      Me thinks this poll smacks of a bit of desperation in the Pelosi/Herseth camp. I hope my fellow South Dakota voters can see through all the smoke and distractions and realize that this is a fight to send a message that enough is enough. A vote for SHS is a vote to proceed as you have for the last two years.

  2. we have alot of time till the election, my issue is with this blog-share-post site. When are you going to post other issues??? Local issues- like the Wagner Parade and Kloucek’s possible legislation?? Sidewalk grumblers- heck some of these guys don’t clean off what they’ve got??? Dirty yards and neighborhood nuisances that are not getting attention ??? Reactions to Corn Palace week and shows??? ad infinitum???
