Bunning: None of Your Business

More

Sen. Jim Bunning (R-KY), considered by many to be the most vulnerable senator up for reelection in 2010, isn't sharing the results of an internal poll he's conducted. In fact, he says, it's "none of your G-d---- business."

The Louisville Courier-Journal reports:

"Let's say I did the polling," the senator told reporters on a conference call this morning.

What does that mean?

"That means it's none of your g--d--- business," Bunning said, who then followed up with a laugh. "If you paid the 20 grand for the poll, you can get some information out of it."

Point taken. Not to read too much into this, but internal polling is sometimes used to advertise a candidate's strength. A Daily Kos/Research 2000 poll in early February showed Bunning ahead of four Democrats included in the poll, but with his support hovering around the mid-40 percent range. (Some take that as a low showing for an incumbent.) There's no way to know what Bunning's internal poll showed, but we do know that, for whatever reason, he's not advertising it.
