Senate Dems release polling numbers that give different picture on two races

Senate Dems today released poll numbers showing much tighter races in two districts than were found in surveys released last week.

The Public Policy Polling surveys done for the liberal blog Daily Kos and released last week found Republican Jerry Petrowski leading Dem Donna Seidel 51 percent to 37 percent and Republican Terry Moulton up on Dem Kristen Dexter 51-41.

The Senate Dems polling found Petrowski backed by 51 percent to 45 percent for Seidel, while Moulton and Dexter were about even at 49 percent for the Republican and 47 for the Dem.

The memo laying out the numbers singles out what the authors say were flaws with the PPP polling last week.

In the 21st SD, Senate Dems polling found a close race much like PPP. But the Senate Dems had the race at 51 percent for Dem John Lehman and 47 percent for Republican Van Wanggaard. PPP had it 48-46 Wanggaard.

Each of the surveys included 400 likely recall voters and a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percentage points. The Moulton race survey was done March 20-22, the Wanggaard race April 3-5 and the 29th SD April 17-19.
