The open Tennessee Senate race continues to move back and forth between former Gov. Phil Bredesen (D) and US Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Brentwood). The latest Vox Populi survey sums it up, well. According to their latest poll (9/16-18; 567 TN “active” voters), the two candidates are tied at 42% apiece on the first ballot test question. When pushed for an answer, an additional nine percent lean toward Bredesen as opposed to seven percent more preferring Blackburn.
Earlier in the month, CNN released their Tennessee poll (9/11-15; 723 TN likely voters) that placed Mr. Bredesen up 50-45%. But, during the same time period, Triton Research & Polling (9/10-12; 1,038 TN registered voters) found Blackburn riding in front, 48-45%. Out of state groups are coming in hard for Bredesen, but Blackburn has raised more campaign money. October promises to be an interesting month in the Volunteer State.
