Nelson Narrows the Gap with Bruning

A new Public Policy Polling survey in Nebraska finds Jon Bruning (R) leading Sen. Ben Nelson (D-NE) by four points, 46% to 42%. In January, Bruning held an 11 point lead.

"It still looks like an uphill battle for Nelson -- it's never easy to win if you're one of the most unpopular Senators in the country. But Bruning has been weakened so much over the course of 2011 that there's a ray of hope for Nelson that might not have existed earlier this year. It's the Harry Reid plan for an unpopular incumbent- make your opponent even more unpalatable than you. That's not an easy thing to pull off but Nelson's headed in the right direction."
