Sununu Sinks While Sparks Savors Support

  • New Hampshire: Kos and MyDD offer the goods on a new ARG poll showing Sprintin' John Sununu losing to former Governor Jeanne Shaheen in a hypothetical match-up 44-34. Sununu only gets 34% in the match-up. 34 lousy percent! Now, Jeanne Shaheen isn't running, you say. True. But it does demonstrate clear disapproval of Sununu and an obvious display on the part of Granite Staters that they want someone else. In the polls, while Sununu only gets 1% of Democrats, Shaheen captures 17% of Republicans, almost one in five! That's a pretty significant level of disenchantment with Sununu from among his own base. Doesn't bode well for Sprintin' Sununu.

  • Alabama: SSP gathers up the broad, positive reactions to a possible Ron Sparks Senate bid. Sparks himself has even taken note of the groundswell of support and says a decision will be made within months. Good stuff!

    Can you imagine the play this poll would get if Sununu faced a top-tier challenger?

    I think this poll may be skewed a bit towards the Dem side, but I dont think Bush is at 17% in New Hampshire. Makes me think Sununu is probably a tad higher. I dont doubt he is vulnerable, but I dont think it is quite this bad.
