June Senate Approval Numbers from Survey USA

SUSA is up with their June numbers.

New June numbers in bold, 5/24/07 numbers in italics, 4/24/07 in brackets, 11/22/06 in parenthesis

Norm Coleman: 48-41 51-42 [53-41] (48-43)
John Cornyn: 42-43 46-40 [43-40] (45-42)
Pete Domenici: 51-42 52-42 [54-38] (68-25)
Mitch McConnell: 52-42 54-39 [53-40] (54-39)
Pat Roberts: 51-37 52-36 [48-39] (51-36)
Jeff Sessions: 59-33 60-31 [54-36] (58-32)
Gordon Smith: 47-45 48-39 [51-41] (54-37)
John Warner: 53-34 62-29 [55-33] (60-28)

Tom Harkin: 51-38 56-36 [57-38] (53-40)
John Kerry: 50-46 47-47 [54-41] (48-50)

1) On the Democratic side, Kerry continues to float around 50% and I continue to hope that Republicans will actually drop some dough in vain in Massachusetts. Harkin drops back to the low-50's, which could embolden GOP Rep. Tom Latham to take a shot at a Senate race, which some argue could be a good thing for Democrats.
2) McConnell, Roberts, and Domenici continue to be happy to be a hair over 50% and even Warner has come back down to the low-50's.
3) Coleman and Smith are under 50% and Cornyn's numbers are in the gutter.

Wow, those Cornyn numbers are something. If his disapproval numbers are higher then his approval numbers, then Dems certinally have a chance.

Look for Kerry to get a primary challenge.

It looks like Tom Ravenal won't be giving Lindsey Graham a primary challenge after all.

Anthony - Kerry already has a primary challenge from a lawyer with no statewide name ID - shouldn't cause much of an impact, and no top Dems in MA would challenge him.

va blogger - Jeez. Looks like the only thing Ravenel will be running for is president of the freshman class at prison.
