Rehberg Makes Online Poll Comeback!

By Beacon Staff

The <a href="http://www.flatheadbeacon.com/articles/article/could_congressman_denny_rehberg_beat_incumbent_sen._jon_tester_in_2012/" title="Beacon recently posted an online poll”>Beacon recently posted an online poll that asked, “Could Congressman Denny Rehberg beat incumbent Sen. Jon Tester in 2012?” By the time we sent our print edition to the press earlier this week, 171 people had voted and the majority of our online readers, by a margin of 53 to 47 percent, thought Tester would win in a head-to-head matchup. So, if you pick up our newspaper this week, those our the results you will see.

Well, in the two days since, Electric City Weblog has linked to the poll as has a facebook account. Coincidentally, Rehberg, with 433 votes cast, has taken a commanding lead (67 to 33 percent) over Tester.

Don’t call it a comeback … And don’t call it a scientific poll.
