Corker Campaign Shows Inconsistency On Polls

Today the Corker campaign is touting a new Zogby Interactive poll which shows Bob Corker up a meager 2 points since their last polling.

However, I find it odd that the Corker campaign is now touting the Zogby Interactive poll, as just a few months back they tried to discredit it:
  • "Another poll released Monday by Wall Street Journal/Zogby reported that Ford would actually beat Corker while Bryant and Hilleary would beat Ford. The Corker campaign's Mitchell questioned the Zogby poll's Internet methodology compared to Mason Dixon's traditional telephone polling." Nashville City 07-25-06
You can't have it both way guys. You either don't trust the polling or you do. You can't love it when it works your way and hate it when it doesn't.

Clearly, Mitchell and the Corkerites are quick to tout the very poll they tried to discredit as they are desperate for good news because all recent polls have shown Corker losing.

Just like their candidate, Ben Mitchell and the Corker campaign figure out where they stand on anything.

It's time for a change.

Below are reliable polls that show the true nature of this race:
