| MI-Sen: As expected, PPP checked in on the Senate race while they were in Michigan, and have Debbie Stabenow doing slightly better than Obama, leading Pete Hoekstra 53-37. This race has been underpolled; as the last survey before this one was the MRG poll from March that had Hoekstra within 5.
MO-Sen: Nothing new in Missouri: Claire McCaskill is still stuck in the mid-40's against all three GOP candidates, and has lousy job approvals (40/50). This month, PPP finds statistical ties all around, as McCaskill trails Todd Akin 45-44, ties with Sarah Steelman at 44, and leads John Brunner 46-44. The GOP primary is just as close: Steelman 28, Akin 25, Brunner 23, with plenty of undecideds.
OH-Sen: Rasmussen has Sherrod Brown up 47-42 on Josh Mandel. The trendlines are positive for Brown, who led by 3 in last month's Rasmussen poll.
WI-Gov: The latest Marquette poll is more of the same, with Walker leading Barrett 52-45, and LG Rebecca Kleefisch up 46-41 among likely voters. Walker's collective bargaining reforms have majority support among the electorate, and he's also personally popular at 51/46. Perhaps the most interesting finding from this poll is that 34% of respondents claim to have stopped talking to someone due to conflicting views on Walker. Yes sir, they care about their politics in Wisconsin! (FWIW, Democrats claim that the race "is a dead heat" in their internals.)
FL-07: John Mica is up 55-25 on Sandy Adams in an internal poll he released today, quite impressive considering that Adams represents more of the new 7th. The filing deadline in Florida is next Friday, so perhaps Mica is trying to scare Adams into another race, although she seems just as dead-set on the 7th as he does.
IL-12: Democrats are starting the application process here that Republicans recently went through in the 13th, and one big name--St. Rep. Jerry Costello II--says he won't apply. The state party named Madison County Circuit Court Chief Judge Ann Callis, St. Rep. John Bradley, and ex-St. Rep. Jay Hoffman as three potential candidates for the nomination.
