A Minnesota Public Radio News/University of Minnesota poll showed: Who Is Running More Negative TV Ads? N. Coleman 48% A. Franken 21 No difference 23Coleman got Franken's negatives down as far as he could, and now his favorables are falling too. So! Stunt time! Honestly, McCain could've used something more like this back when the race was way closer. Instead he went the opposite direction ("canceling the campaign" never had a chance in part because it was transparent lie and was reported at such), and now he's stuck in deep dark attack mode. Will it work for Norm? It'll probably help. All bets are off if Obama wins big in Minnesota (where he's polling a bit behind the rest of the upper midwest), but in a narrow election Coleman gets enough Obama converts to win it. Which means, sadly, that Americans waiting for the first SNL veteran to hold elected office will have to rest their hopes on a Piscopo Governorship.
