No misprint. Obama. Up five points. 48/43. In Montana.
That’s a mirror image of the numbers in April.
It occurs to me that making a serious play for these low density states may have as much to do with the message that polls like this sends to the rest of America as the electoral votes that a state like Montana could yield for Obama in November.
Headline: Obama Up 23 in Massachusetts
Not exactly going to move the needle in Michigan.
Headline: Obama Up 5 in Big Sky Country
That’s different. That’s: How liberal could he be if folks in Montana like him? Maybe I need to take a second look at this guy.
