Money Wasted

Jon Lauck reports on Daschle’s massive spending spree in South Dakota which works out to nearly $32.25 per voter in South Dakota! That wipes away the record set by Sen. Jon “Moneybags” Corzine in 2000 when he spent the equivalent of $13/voter.

Well, I’m thinking that the sum of $32.25 would be an excellent figure to donate to the Thune campaign to help him defeat Daschle and end the Daschle Dead Zone in the United States Senate…

  1. It’d be interesting to find out what Thune is spending per capita. When I drove through South Dakota 10 days ago, I heard substantially more radio ads for Thune than Daschle on several different stations….yet Thune still can’t produce a poll lead.

  2. Thune’s only leads have come from internal GOP pollsters…showing him up by two and three points, respectively. The Argus Leader poll Nicholas cited and a Democratic internal poll showed Daschle leading by five and eight points, respectively. I think I’d prefer to be in Daschle’s shoes.

  3. The Argus poll is the Mason/Dixon poll. Rassmussen’s last poll also showed a Thune lead of 3 points.

    Of course, polling South Dakota tends to be a crapshoot and its damn near impossible to get an accurate prediction. My guess is that the race is nowhere near an 8 point spread between Thune and Daschle and the race is wide open at this point. As much as I’d like to have a prediction in this race, I just have no idea where things will end up. The only thing I do know is that it’s a very close race and both sides are spending a lot of money in order to win.
