Lamar Alexander Plummeting in Poll

New polling data released today shows Lamar Alexander losing ground in Volunteer state wide polling. Ken Buck, director of the MTSU (Middle Tennessee State University, Murfreesboro) poll , said that Alexander’s approval  level has dropped from 54% approval down to 43% among all voters.  The trend was worse among independent voters, plunging 22 points to a 36% approval , down from 58%. Republicans were 29% favoring Alexander in his primary against (largely unknown) state representative Joe Carr. Fourteen percent of Republicans favor “SOMEONE ELSE” and 8% favor Carr , a tea party favorite. Forty five percent were undecided. It appears that Carr, if he can gain the name recognition currently held by “Someone Else”, is within striking distance of a Rino King, Lamar Alexander.
