    we really need to focus a lot of energy on Scott and other young progressives running. He is facing the same problem as Barack when he was "young" in this race. When will Barack visit the state? An apearance ot two would definately help especially when she is out of the way.

    •  let's hope he will (0+ / 0-)

      One of the advantages of this long primary slog is that Barack has set up operations in every state (I think). Hopefully he'll drop in to offer some support for young candidates like Scott Kleeb. At least he's already set up there and can hit the ground running if he does visit.

      Pardon my unfamilarity with Nebraska, but does it have swing state potential with the Obama electorial demographics? If so, I'd think he'd definitely visit.

      a visit from Obama might not help much; even with the huge proportion of people not knowing who Kleeb is, he still does better than Obama, and you gotta figure most people know who Obama is.

        with those numbers.

        Its just not fathomable that Obama performs better in CD3 that in CD1 (lincoln) or CD2 (omaha).  

        I was in Omaha a couple weeks ago and there is a lot of support there for Obama, even talk that he might win CD2.  And this poll has him < 30%?

        That doesn't seems right to me.

      •  cell phones vs. land lines (0+ / 0-)

        Given the rise in the use of cell phones and the fact that many Nebraskans are cancelling their land line service, I wonder of only calling land lines will skew the data?

        The Republicans can't hang on forever. Not even in Nebraska!
