A polling firm came out with numbers showing Bozeman’s Kathleen Williams leading the Congressman from the Bozeman penal division, Greg Gianforte.
Gravis Marketing, a polling firm that sports a C+ from the polling report card website 538, put out numbers showing Williams with a healthy lead over Gianforte.
This is the first public polling of the race but it shows that Montanans are not happy with their Congressman. Maybe it is time to revisit the old adage “no such thing as bad publicity.”
Maybe it was the assault on a reporter, on our public lands, or on our healthcare, but it seems Montana might be ready to send Gianforte home.
Williams will have to work her butt off, but she’s got to be happy about these numbers. And she’s shown through her primary victory she’s not afraid to do the work.
This poll will also serve as a wake-up call for Gianforte. He’s sitting on over a million dollars of other people’s money as well as his own large fortune. Don’t be surprised to see Gianforte break open the pinata and spend a lot of money in the coming months to try and drive down Williams’ momentum.
