Why Russ Feingold Could Lose
New Rasmussen poll shows Democratic senator down by 3 points.

A new Rasmussen poll should have Wisconsin Democrat Russ Feingold worried:
Feingold has never won by huge margins--he took just 51 percent of the vote when he was first re-elected in 1998 and 55 percent in 2004. Thompson was an enormously popular governor, and he could probably take down Feingold. It would be a tough race though as Feingold, running as a good-government-kinda-guy, would surely attack Thompson for making big bucks as a Washington insider.
Thompson is probably the GOP's best bet in Wisconsin, but another strong candidate with enough funding could beat Feingold.
