A Look At The DailyKos Straw Polls

Kos PollsKos posted this article showing the results of the last seven Straw Polls.

I was trying to visualize the results, then gave up, and used a spreadsheet. It's available at RussForge for your viewing pleasure.

There's not enough information available to say how many Clark supporters have switched to supporting Feingold since August of last year. However, a guess of 20% of respondents switching from Clark to Feingold is probably in the ballpark.

There are two pronounced bounces for Feingold. It looks like a lot of "No Freakin' Clue" folks switched to Russ between July and September. Feingold's comments against CAFTA come to mind in that time frame. Any other opinions?

The second big bounce came from November-Janurary (USA-PATRIOT Act?) and Janurary to March (warrantless wiretapping of US Citizens?).

I think one takeaway is that there's a lot of lingering affection for Clark in the Feingold camp. Just my opinion - I think that's our ticket for '08.
