Daschle In Trouble?

The Washington Times reports that the Republican Senatorial Committee has conducted a poll that shows John Thune leading the Evil Weasel, Tom Daschle, by two points if Daschle runs for re-election next year. This is encouraging, I guess, but not especially meaningful this far from the election. I think that either Thune or Bill Janklow would be essentially a toss-up against Daschle. South Dakota is Republican by a pretty wide margin, but Daschle is a pork-barrel king on the order of Robert Byrd. His campaign won’t be uplifting–vote for me and I’ll bring you money–but the formula has worked before.
