None of these are particularly inconsistent with recent polls (especially McConnell-Grimes), although I would like to know why the Pryor-Cotton race is swinging so widely. Cotton was up a couple of months ago.

Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

REGISTERED VOTERS.

Only LIKELY VOTERS will turn out in mid-terms, so these polls are very misleading.

most polls are misleading, if read too closely; the only poll that matters is the one taken at the ballot box in november

Also, keep this in mind:

In LA, those polled voted for Obama over Romney by 3. Romney won LA by 17- 20 point swing.

In NC, those polled voted for Obama over Romney by 7. Romney won NC by 3- 10 point swing.

In AR, those polled voted for Romney over Obama by only 1. Romney won AR by 24- 23 point swing.

In KY, those polled voted for Romney over Obama by only 3. Romney won KY by 23- 20 point swing.

Anytime an incumbent polls at under 50 percent, that incumbent is in deep trouble.  Pryor's numbers are the best and he is at 46 percent.  Hagan and Landrieu are in deep doo doo.
