Deserting a sinking ship

Via kos, Bill Sali has lost 27 points in a poll of 300 Idahoans asked whether they would vote for Larry Grant or Bill Sali. While the poll shows Grant with more support than Sali, by far the majority of those surveyed said they were undecided.

This, of course, is only good news for Grant, who is still wrestling with the problem of name recognition, let alone gaining ground amongst undecided voters. Of course, turning people off to Bill Sali isn't a huge challenge, so there's real work left to be done. If these numbers are indicative of anything, surely it is that heavy concentration on turnout amongst Democratic Idahoans paired with a charm offensive to pick up points from the undecideds could be a recipe for a Democratic win in Idaho. Yes - Idaho.
