Today the esteemed pollster, Rassmussen, upgraded the Scott McAdams - Joe Miller U.S. Senate race from solid Republican to leans Republican.
Soon afterward, the McAdams internet fundraising niche began climbing even faster than it had been, with McAdams being one of the very top donation recipients at Act Blue throughout Wednesday, sometimes taking in almost $2,000.00 per hour from around the nation.
The most favorable prospect for the McAdams campaign is evidence of the intense polarization Miller engenders, and the preference for McAdams by non-aligned voters:
Ninety percent (90%) of Democrats back McAdams while 79% of Republicans throw their vote behind Miller.
McAdams holds a 22-point lead among voters not affiliated with either major political party.
With last weekend's PPP poll, showing the majority of Alaskans not liking Miller, the more people get to know the affable, positive McAdams, the more they will like him. It likely that he's raised far more on the internet Wednesday than his campaign has managed to spend since its inception.
Here's Scott on MSNBC's Rachel Maddow Show today:
I doubt the guy showing up near the end of this clip donated to Joe:
Here's Scott's very active Act Blue page.
He's raised $1,900.00 since I began writing this column.
Update - Thursday 7:15 a.m: Since this same time yesterday, Scott McAdams has raised over $40,000.00 on the web at his Act Blue page alone. He has raised almost $100,000.00 there ($96,625.00), with 997 supporters. This level of web-based fundraising in one day for a candidate running for statewide office in Alaska may be unprecedented.
YOU can put Scott over $100,000!
