If the latest unscientific Bozeman Chronicle online poll is indeed an accurate predictor of the US Senate race in Montana, then we should expect Amanda Curtis to defeat Steve Daines this November by a comfortable margin. When I checked early yesterday, she had over 2,000 votes and Daines had only a few hundred.
That’s the difference between Democrats and Republican grassroots. GOP “young guns” are apparently no match for tech savvy progressives, who quickly voted in large numbers for Curtis. It has tightened today, but she is still beating him by a 1,000 votes. By percentage, the current standings are:
Daines R 35% (1,488)
Curtis D 58% (2,413)
Roots L 3% (142)
Undecided 2% (94)
