Dems lead Kennedy

The GOPs favorite Right leaning pollster shows Kennedy behind against BOTH contenders for the nomination. It wasn't that long ago that Ford Bell was merely a footnote in this race. But a 7 point jump in the prior Rasmussen number crunching now puts him ahead of the sitting congressman.:
February 28, 2006--Since last month, support for Democrat Ford Bell has jumped 7 points in a match-up with Republican Mark Kennedy. He now leads Kennedy 43% to 40%. In the Rasmussen Reports January poll, Kennedy led Bell 41% to 36%.

Democrat Amy Klobuchar also gained ground, but only a couple points. She now leads Kennedy 45% to 42%. Last month the two were neck-and-neck (see crosstabs).

Klobuchar does a little better than Bell among unaffiliated voters and moderates.
There is still a lot of campaigning to do, but the optimistic Kennedy camp must be concerned if a former no name like Bell is now polling/pulling ahead.
