This morning Montana State University-Billings will release the second half of its annual poll, and it’s expected to include a snapshot of the race between Jon Tester, Dan Cox, and Congressman Dennis Rehberg.
The poll is conducted every year by MSU-B political science professor Craig Wilson, the father of Evan Wilson, who is currently the political director of Rehberg’s Senate campaign (according to this wedding announcement).
Evan Wilson was also campaign manager of Rehberg’s U.S. House campaign in 2010.
Remember that year, MSU-B pollsters did not ask any questions about Rehberg because, as the poll itself noted, “Craig Wilson’s son is working in Dennis Rehberg’s campaign.”
So the question is, what changed this year? What did MSU-B do to ensure accuracy and impartiality in this year’s poll if it was a concern two years ago?
