Rassy's Governor Poll

The Governor continues to slip:
Pawlenty currently trails Attorney General Mike Hatch by five percentage points--45% to 40%. Last month, Pawlenty led Hatch 47% to 44%. Pawlenty is also now neck-and-neck with State Senator Steve Kelley, 42% to 42%. In our January poll, Pawlenty led Kelly 46% to 37%.
We saw similar movement from Rasmussen in the Senate Race, where the front runner added slight gains, and the other candidate made increases large enough to prove their viability.

Governor Pawlenty will be walking on egg shells this session. It will be interesting to see how much he moderates over the course of the next few months. It's clear that he has his work cut out for him if he hopes to keep his political ambitions alive through re-election.
