Feingold, Johnson in dead heat in last 2 weeks

Isn’t this always how it goes for Feingold? At least what we are told is that the good Senator somehow pulls ahead at the end of the race, squeaking by his latest millionaire opponent.

That is how it looks to be once again. Despite spending millions of his wealthy family’s money, and having millions more come in from out of state, Ron Johnson appears to be in a statistical tie with Senator Feingold. That trend has been emerging in recent days, with a new poll from the St. Norbert College Survey Center has Johnson barely ahead, 49 percent to 47 percent. The margin of error is 5 percentage points.

It’s coming apparent that Feingold may once again be saved by a superior ground game. But we are also seeing (or not seeing) Johnson as an invisible candidate who won’t reveal himself or his true feelings and opinions until after he wins election. That is a dangerous quality for someone who wants to be a representative of the people in one of our nation’s most respected chambers.
