In the latest Rasmussen Poll of likely voters, Sherrod Brown leads Mike DeWine 49-41, but that isn't the real gem in this polling. By a margin of three to one, respondents said they believed the republican leadership has been protecting Mark Foley for years. Yes, that's right years.
That is about as bad as news as republicans have had lately, and while on NPR this morning several rural voters said the scandal will not change their votes, I have a feeling suburban voters don't feel the same. The NPR poll is due out sometime today.
