Perhaps the Thompson folks were spooked by the NH poll showing their guy behind Huck and Paul in NH but they put out a silly over the top email declaring a national poll shows them tied with Rudy. They cite Rasmussen — the bouncing ping pong ball of polls — which today shows the gap only at 2 pts. Considering the gap between Rudy and Thompson in some rather widely reported polls is rather substantial ( Bloomberg/LAT 17%), Gallup( 14%), CBS and others (8%) and Fox(13%) and the overall average at Realclearpolitics has widened recently as we and others have pointed out, it seems silly to call attention to national polls right now. Aren’t there any good state ones for their guy?
UPDATE: And to make things worse Fox is out with a new national poll today : Rudy 31%( up 2 pts from last poll), Thompson 17%( up one pt.), McCain 12%( no change), Romney 7%( down 4 pts.) and Huckabee 5%( no change).
