Trauner edges Lummis in latest poll

Good news for Democrat Gary Trauner's bid to grab Wyoming's lone U.S. House seat in 2008 (as reported in today's Casper Star-Tribune):

The general election race for Wyoming's lone U.S. House seat could be another nail-biter, a new Casper Star-Tribune poll shows.

Democrat Gary Trauner, the Teton County businessman who narrowly lost to Rep. Barbara Cubin in 2006, is in a statistical tie with former state treasurer Cynthia Lummis, a Republican, the results show.

The poll by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research of Washington, D.C., on Jan. 18-21, surveyed 625 registered voters from across the state who said they regularly vote in Wyoming state elections. It had a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

If the election were held now, Trauner would receive 41 percent of the vote, while Lummis would get 40 percent, the poll showed. The remaining 19 percent of voters said they were undecided.

So what are we waiting for -- let's hold the election now, before those "undecideds" get swayed by the Repubs.
