WI-08 Steve Kagen Trailing in Daily Kos Poll

Public Policy Polling for Daily Kos. 10/23-24. Likely voters. MoE 2.6% (No trend lines)

Reid Ribble (R) 40
Steve Kagen (D) 37

Even though this is a close race -- just three points separate Ribble and Kagen -- the fact that nearly one in four voters are undecided isn't good news for Kagen, who was first elected in 2006. The reason for the high undecided totals is that likely voters are unfamiliar with either candidate. A total of 42 percent say that they have neither a favorable nor unfavorable impression of Kagen and 48 percent are neutral about Ribble. In the Senate race, by contrast, more than 90 percent of likely voters are familiar enough with both candidates to have formed an impression.

On my way out and wanted to post this quick. There are results on other races as well at the link.

Interesting note:

Gizzi at Human Events predicts that Kind will lose and Kagen will win (unless he confused the two.)

I hope he's just confused, but I'm not counting Kagen out by any means.
