A new Public Policy Polling survey (11/10-12; 1,190 NE registered voters; automated) tested the Nebraska electorate, and Democratic candidate Jane Raybould claims the results portray incumbent Sen. Deb Fischer (R) in a vulnerable light. According to PPP, Sen. Fischer would only lead Ms. Raybould, a Lincoln City Councilwoman, 42-31%. The Senator’s favorability index is upside down at 35:45%. These latter numbers are not particularly surprising coming from PPP, since their favorability questions routinely return negative ratios regardless of the individual being tested. Such a poll, while clearly not bringing Sen. Fischer positive news, is not, in and of itself, a reason to move this race higher on any targeting list.
