A new poll touted by Col. Rob Maness’ Campaign, the long-shot senate candidate, shows the Tea Party and Sarah Palin favorite surging. However, it fails to offer any reasonable data on the poll itself.
The first survery, conducted by the Senate Conservative Fund, has incumbent Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) at 43 percent, Republican challenger Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) at 32 percent and Maness (R-LA) at 16 percent. 8 percent of respondents said they were undecided and one percent went with another candidate.
For this survey, the Senate Conservative Fund notes that it included 600 likely voters and was conducted August 16-18 and has a margin of error of +/- 4.0 percent.
Then, when Landrieu is paired with each of the challenging candidates separately, Cassidy and Maness, the polling data stops.
When the race is Landrieu vs. Cassidy, Landrieu receives 49 percent of the vote, while Cassidy gets 43 percent. For this survey, no polling data is given. When the race is Landrieu vs. Maness, Landrieu recieves 48 percent and Maness gets 44 percent. Again, no polling data is given, therefore it is unknown if these are likely voters, Republicans or Democrats, and even what age bracket this is.
Also, it is hard to understand how Cassidy largely beats Maness when the two are challenging Landrieu, but later in separate races, Maness makes out better than Cassidy when Landrieu is the only other option.
The mysterious poll was not only touted by the Maness Campaign, but also by WWL’s Clancy DuBoy and Fox News’ Carl Cameron.
