Custom polling

Posted By on Thu, Aug 10, 2006 at 2:53 PM

John Brummett digs deeper into Republican intimations that one of their internal polls shows the governor's race is neck-and-neck, with 41 percent for Democrat Mike Beebe, 40 percent for Republican Asa Hutchinson and 19 percent undecided.

[Clint Reed, the state Republican executive director] said the poll was conducted July 23-25, the week after the independent polls had prompted CQPolitics to reclassify the race as leaning Beebe's way. It was done by Victory Enterprises of Davenport, Iowa, which, according to its Web site, is headed by a former chairman of the Iowa Republican Party and has a long list of clients including several state Republican parties. ...

Reed explained that a few more calls were placed to northwest and central Arkansas than to east and south Arkansas. That was because more votes were cast in northwest and central Arkansas in the 2004 presidential election. Northwest Arkansas and suburban Little Rock are Republican; the southern and eastern sections lean Democratic. ...

Oh well, The Republican poll is not so different from Zogby. As I told Reed, his poll is "friendly, but not necessarily bogus." At least Asa can tell prospective donors that the race is razor close.
